WHO WILL SAVE SOME NIGERIANS FROM INTELLECTUAL LAZINESS?
By FEMI ADESINA

Since President Muhammadu Buhari met with the Archbishop of Canterbury in London on Wednesday, and spoke on the likely impact of gunmen trained by former Libyan leader, Muammar Gaddafi, on the killings by herdsmen in Nigeria, some people have virtually flown off the handle, ululating as if wailing was going out of fashion.

They twisted the meaning of Mr President's words (yes, some people twist everything, even the words of God; 2 Peter:3, 15,16). They claimed he was blaming Gaddafi, long dead, for the killings in Nigeria.

But let's see the vacuousness and intellectual laziness in the twist they have given what President Buhari said, out of sheer malice and evil hearts. Sadly, even a Senator was involved in the sickening display of poisonous heart. That's what you get when small minds get into high places.

Here's what Mr President told Archbishop Justin Welby:
"The problem is even older than us. It has always been there, but now made worse by the influx of armed gunmen from the Sahel region into different parts of the West African sub-region. These gunmen were trained and armed by Muammar Gadaffi of Libya. When he was killed, the gunmen escaped with their arms. We encountered some of them fighting with Boko Haram. Herdsmen that we used to know carried only sticks and maybe a cutlass to clear the way, but these ones now carry sophisticated weapons. The problem is not religious, but sociological and economic. But we are working on solutions."

> "The problem is even older than us," said President Buhari. If anybody is not challenged with simple understanding of English language, does this mean pre-Gaddafi? The former Libyan leader was born in 1942, and killed in October 2011, making him 69 years old at the time of his death. So, did he cause clashes between farmers and herdsmen, which the President said was older than most living Nigerians? Only rabidly mischievous minds can conceive such.

"It has always been there, but now made worse..." If you say something has been exacerbated by a factor, does it mean such factor is the cause? Simply illogical.

The President talked about the influx of militia trained, armed and used by Gaddafi, who now dispersed into different countries, including possibly Nigeria, after the Libyan strongman's death. Are some people claiming ignorance of such development, despite it being global knowledge? So deep must be the ignorance of such people. Simple research will show them the Libyan influence on proliferation of small arms all over Africa, after Gaddafi's death.

The President then talked about the herdsmen we used to know, who carried just sticks, and at worst a cutlass, saying those armed with sophisticated weapons were unknown to this clime. Is that not true?

If herdsmen have suddenly turned murderous in a country, it calls for all sorts of interrogation, including intellectual, as to what may have gone wrong. The causes could be multifarious. And solutions must be jointly proffered.

A President has sensitive security reports available to him. President Buhari gave another vista from which the herdsmen/farmers clashes could be considered, but rather than be reflective and do critical interrogation, the wailers engaged in their pastime: they began to wail, including senators and people who should naturally be level headed and examine issues dispassionately. Very sorry.

"But we are working on solutions," President Buhari told the cleric. They ignored that. It holds no meaning for them. They are interested in problems, not solutions. Problems serve their pernicious interests more. Pity!
That is what hatred does to the heart. It stunts the mind and poisons the soul. Such heart plays petty partisan and divisive politics with every matter. It is what President Buhari at that meeting called "irresponsible politics." And as we head for general elections next year, much more of it would be seen, except such people reform, and put on their thinking caps.

The tendency now is to twist and slant every word from President Buhari in the negative, all in a bid to demean, de-market, and demonize him, and make him unattractive to the electorate. But those who do it are to be pitied. Sensible Nigerians know what the President is doing for the country, and would queue behind him at the polls next year. At the end of it all, the detractors would be holding the short ends of the stick, and looking small, forlorn and disconsolate. Where would they then hide their faces?

He ended up saying nothing in reference to the three analysis given from different quarters by the security chief and the president himself.. which was basically what the senator was concerned about.

I have never heard of a serving minister in any part of the world that will keep insulting the people that voted him to power while the government he works for fail to call him to order, We need to remind him we pay him with our money, we dont work for him we employed him to work for us. His latest insult out of series of shameful words that come out of his unguarded lips is when he called his fellow Nigerians Intellectual Lazy amongs other insults:

http://www.theguildng.com/who-will-save-some-nigerians-from-intellectual-laziness/

Is there any reason why this shameless man shouldn't be stonned in public to remind him that he is no better than we the "intellectualy lazy" people that employed him?

This government should stop pushing us to the wall and stop taking our silence for weakness... they should be reminded that we the people can make this government totally ungovernable and shut it down if we take to the streets to vent our anger.

Femi is as embittered as Buhari on national issues that should be handled with maturity.

I can't wait for the duo to be cleared off our national space.

Tell Buhari to stop opening his mouth if he does not have a prepared speech.


You should rather be concerned about who will save you from Buhari's daily blunders.

COMPREHENSIVE LIST OF US PRODUCTS THAT COULD BE AFFECTED BY CHINA SANCTION

In retaliation to President Donald Trump tariff hike plan, the Chinese government has announce that it will place 25 percent levy on US imports which cut across Agricultural Produce, Automobiles, Aircrafts, Whisky etc.
Below is a comprehensive list of products that will be affected by the Chines sanction:

This is the latest move in escalating tensions between the world's two largest economies, which some experts fear could turn into a trade war, theme “World War 3.”
The Chines Government says the new sanctions are in response to President Donald Trump's tariffs on imports of steel, aluminum and other products from China and other countries.
This trade attack by US and a counter attack by China have rattled investors and fueled market fears; thereby places the world on the brink of trade war The world is on the brink of a trade war
Top US and Chinese officials have been holding series talks since the announcement in an effort to end the trade tensions. But so far, neither United State nor China is backing down.

shocked

Femi Adesina of The Sun newspaper saying things like this shocked I remember when Femi was a Editor-in-Chief for The Sun. His weekly column where more like a fairly tale of everything Nigeria was not. He's writings where magical. Spurring response from not just a wide range of readers but even top government officials.

His articles gave readers the hope that one day, we would wake up to see a new Nigeria even though we where living in times of great uncertainty about a positive future.

Even now, we remain in greater uncertainty as the government which he represents keep towing us deep into rough times we had once triumph over.

Femi has gone bad.

Now I have some questions for this stupid Adeshina;
1.Why is his foolish boss reluctant in declaring the now arms-wielding fulani herdsmen terrorists but rather with "swiftest" alacrity called IPOB terrorists?
2.Since these marauding cum killers fulanis are Lybian trained fugitives why is the super-clueless president yet to declare a national emergency on security?
Why can't the INCOMPETENT president give his service chiefs stern warning or marching orders in background of the endless killings?
Or these aliens can violate Nigeria's sovereignty while our government continue to look clueless & helpless
