na wa o! nigerians and our wahala!
Look do you know that some people actually still think that the issues plaguing us as a nation are a matter of flesh and blood?
Make e no be like say i dey talk because mb cheap, let me provide some evidence so that my words can be approved.
So check this, we had pdp in power for 16 years since the commencement of the return of democracy.
Fine no wahala, eventually we got to a government that had absolutely no respect for the people of the nation, nor its resources and openly treated the national earnings of an entire country as a personal piggy bank to be used to bolster MEN WITH GUNS, cause after all, na dere oil! no be so? fine! no wahala.
Watch this. we had a previous government that enjoyed the highest ever oil earnings with a leader from the region that provided the oil, who freely gave out money meant for all like tissue paper, then left office with NO VAST IMPROVEMENTS IN THE LIVES OF HIS PEOPLE!!!
WHAT THE HEAVEN! add that to this, he fought another’s battle against one of the few governors of light from his region, employing, slander, lies, outright and open harassment and intimidation as well of coercion of the political process in the home state of his wife, to what end? well to install a man who has reignited the militancy with its attendant benefits of cultism and general violence with the attendant deaths of citizens of the state. they killed you to rule you! and worse the citizens of said state chose this path, over modern education that they saw and the countless lives saved by modern health facilities they witnessed built! with korokoro eyes they invited death into their midst!
Wait o! i am not finished.
Oil price fell, new government has entered the center. voted in because the nation of so sick of excess of the previous government.
A new government that previously criticized mercilessly and knew every step of the correct way to set the nation on path enters power in the center and….
Well partly because the new government is very hurt that with the fall in oil prices, there is less revenue, which means that for the first time in a long time, a government in this nation has to do some hard work.
They actually have to go to the people and motivate them, actually have to listen to the conditions in which their people exist and speak to those circumstances in more positive and progressive terms.
why bother to do that wahala when you can just stay away and avoid soiling oneself whilst waiting for oil price to rise, so you can continue pretending that you are an emperor.
In fact ours is a government now so imperial, that instead of studying situations and circumstances in the country then formulating policy, they formulate policy and then expect the circumstances and situation to mold itself to it….sheeat!
Amazing! if it wasn’t so sad.
So lets recap….we have had a government, spending when it should save and its successor saving when it should be spending!
BOTH ARE DOING THE EXACT OPPOSITE OF WHAT THEY SHOULD BE DOING TO ADDRESS THE CIRCUMSTANCES OF THOSE IN THE NATION AND ARE HINDERING THE PROGRESS OF THE NATIONS GREATEST AND MOST NUMEROUS ASSET!
You its people.
You talk say dem no bury something inside that Aso rock? if na naija movie dem for talk say dis one no be clear eye o! and they would be right!
Listen, the nations capital moved from productive Lagos to Abuja.
What was in Abuja previously?
Nothing, what did Abuja produce? what has Abuja produced since inception and commencement? nothing but bureaucracy, so why were countless billions that could have been invested in this nations greatest resource instead employed to create a further place of hindrance?
…so now roughly, recurrent expenditure 70%, capital expenditure 30%, that what is to be invested in progress is less then half of what should be employed in the managing of the process of claiming that progress.
…You dey see? eye dey open? and it was a worse ratio in previous years.
Them say make we farm, but there is an issues of those actually farming being murdered in their beds in their homes with their entire families….any solid word followed by positive solid action to end this violence? nope, just the valuation of the created above creator. Cows are now more valuable then people in a nation that claims that agriculture is necessary, though whilst they proclaim this, its forgotten that its the value added process in conjunction to the products of agriculture that make money in today's world. Yams beans,rice (especially when you seize food as contraband) etc etc ALONE WILL NOT MAKE THE MONEY THE COUNTRY REQUIRES….
YOU HAVE TO ADD VALUE!
wait please i have not finished…
So we have the militants, MEN WITH GUNS in the south, resurgent because of a northern president insensitive to other ways of dialogue except through the gun, even though it was a president of northern origin, who had cancer and was close to death that was able through spirit acknowledge and take a bold step that silenced these same guns previously.
Now we have a man so insensitive that he gave the go ahead by commission or omission for the slaughter of Shiites in Kaduna, by whom? Our army! Our army whose primary function is what? to protect the territorial integrity of the nation.
THAT IS THEIR PRIMARY FUNCTION. now acting against it, by openly killing citizens because of a road blockage. the inequality of crime to punishment, unacknowledged until those exterior to this nation raise a voice…..TO OUR ETERNAL SHAME!
LETS HEAD TO THE NORTH, we have had since the virtual commencement of this country religious riots and massacres of those not of northern origin that reside in the north, NOT A SINGLE PERSON TO MY KNOWLEDGE HAS EVER BEEN HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR THESE ACTS. NEVER IN OPEN COURT. never has the responsibility for the death of countless citizens over the years by their fellow citizens been brought to LIGHT and consequences that display a VALUE for HUMAN LIFE CONSISTENTLY DISPLAYED.
This has happened so often that the blood shed resulted in the creation of a force in the youth of that section in the country that had NO RESPECT FOR HUMAN LIFE WHATSOEVER!!!!
Worse…BH WERE CHEERED ON BY THOSE, WHO SAW THEIR INITIAL MISSION AS A CONTINUATION OF THE PREVIOUS ONE AGAINST THOSE THAT WERE different, but had committed NO CRIME except BEING DIFFERENT.
AS THOUGH WE CREATED OURSELVES OR AS THOUGH ANY PERSON KNOWS THE MOMENT OF THEIR BIRTH OR DEATH.
These incidents became so terrible, atrocities so blatant that even female children became political tools and instead of fulfilling their primary function of bestowers of life of the next generation were employed in suicide bombing…SUICIDE BOMBING!!!! YOUNG GIRLS. RAPED REPEATEDLY, KIDNAPPED CONSISTENTLY and some still harden their hearts and see not the threat to their own existence.
When the murderers, who falsely claim to support GOD but willingly destroy those he created were beaten back, what occurred? Amazingly a resurgence in the open murder of those who are different, through herdsmen and incidents in cities that are increasing…..
THEY HAVE THROUGH THEIR VERY OWN EXPERIENCE REFUSED TO LEARN ANYTHING ABOUT THE RESPECT FOR LIFE AND THUS THE GOD THAT FREELY GIVES HIS GIFT TO ALL.
BLOODY AMAZING! REAL Tru Blood
MEANWHILE, LOOK GOD IS GOOD there remains two industries that started from nothing, only creative impulse that have shown the way to relevance.
They are now world class and valued for their uniqueness the world over. making strides, breaking barriers, crossing over, relentlessly positive and life affirming….and they started right here in this nation because some decide to create instead of destroy.
THE NIGERIAN MOVIE AND MUSIC INDUSTRIES.
These are a shining LIGHT that unequivocally demonstrate to us all, in this nation and thus to the World that the only way to rise is to value what is within and use what is already at and or in hand to create what we desire in our hearts.
WE MUST VALUE EACH ANY EVERY LIFE AND DO WHAT WE CAN TO ENHANCE THAT LIFE IN AGREEMENT WITH PRINCIPLES OF CREATION THAT HAVE STOOD IN EXISTENCE SINCE CREATION.
THERE IS NO OTHER WAY.
Thats why after chasing money, which is a false god by the way, the decline continues…
SO ANYBODY WHO THINKS THAT WHAT IS OCCURRING IN THIS NATION IS PDP AND APC, SHOULD BE FLOGGED REPEATEDLY BY THE NEW WAI BRIGADE BEFORE BEING HANDED OVER TO POLICE THEN THE ARMY FOR MORE QUALITY FLOGGING!
MAYBE THEN SENSE WILL FLOW!!!
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
HE THAT HAS EARS, LET HIM HEAR……..
