I left a message for a friend of mine in Nigeria on one of the social media platforms, that it had been a while since I heard from him, and how he is holding on with the events and the situation of things. Below was his verbatim text response:
Good morning Ayo. Thanks my brother. The truth is that I’m upset…not with you but with everything about Nigeria especially with the intelligentsia in the South who are selling our people daily to jihadist government of Buhari for mere crumbs of money and promise of power. Meanwhile, as we continue to blow big grammar, the agents of this northern Fulani government are busy throwing rings around us and the rest of the indigenous peoples of Nigeria.
My heart is heavy. I’m angry. I have too much to say. I hate to feel helpless. The situation is dire and looks almost hopeless. We are living in a failed state. If you’re in doubt, please watch Governor Ortom of Benue State address on Channels TV yesterday (Monday April 26, 2021) on the killings in his state and the rest of the country. Nigeria is far gone. The jihadists are unrelenting. The noose is tightening. They’re pressing hard. Sooner than later, they will go for the final onslaught. Unfortunately.
I hope our people resist with as much might as they can muster. The hopelessness of the situation was aptly demonstrated on the floor of Senate by Senator Smart Adeyemi who broke down in tears while addressing the upper chamber on the state of insecurity in the country, yesterday, Monday April 26, 2021. Did you observe the body language of his colleagues from the north? Nonchalant.
Why does the senate become a toothless bulldog? Why can’t the senate initiate an impeachment proceedings against this ineffective and clueless President? It’s no brainer. The leadership is in cahoot with President on his evil agenda.
The appointment of Patanmi as minister of Communication and Digital Economy was not an accident as in all the appointments in all the sensitive positions in country. Now, if you do anything, all your bio and details are with this terrorist government. They can cripple you financially, sabotage your business, easily locate, and outrighly eliminate you if considered a security risk to their jihadist and demonic agenda.
I think our situation is beyond 2023 politicking at this moment. Nigeria is facing an existential threat, we need to stem the tide first and foremost. We should forget 2023 for now, whether young or old.
I then asked him if it was ok for me to publish his response verbatim on www.matazarising.com
Here is his response:
If you wish, you may publish it under a pseudonym.
“There’s daggers in men’s smile. The nearer in blood, the more bloody” Donalbain lamented at strange killings in the land in William Shakespeare novel, Macbeth.
Nobody knows anybody’s allegiance. You can only trust yourself. l feel vulnerable. No protection of any kind. Nigeria is a jungle. I’m not ready to die a miserable death in the hands of these vile characters for those who will not appreciate the sacrifice. Besides, I’m managing my health right now. I don’t want anything to make it worse.
SIDE NOTE: The above is the fears, the frustrations, the helplessness, the hopelessness, the agony of 90% of Nigerians across the world today, especially those living in the country. This is simply too much. No Nigerian has to live like this, no one has to live like this. THIS GOVERNMENT IS A CURSE ON THE COUNTRY WE LOVE SO MUCH!
I have heard Nigerians say that the happenings in the country is the semi final phase of the Fulanization and the Islamization of Nigeria, that the federal government of Nigeria through their actions and inactions are setting up the stage for another army take over that will then carry out the final phase of their agenda through brute force.
The argument is that if history is indeed the teacher, past history of the country points to another army take over because every time a Fulani man is made president, and serving a second term in office, their have always been coup de tats. Also, that, that is the reason PMB has captured all the security infrastructure in Nigeria and handed it over to the Fulanis. This is to pave the way for the implementation of their agenda to Fulanize and Islamize Nigeria.
Personally, I refuse to agree with this conspiracy theory, even though, it’s not far fetched if one is to consider the Pantami situation and many other actions that Buhari’s government is supporting through, again, their actions and inactions. Also I continue to convince myself that the world has moved on from those days of military rules and that the international community will not condone such, not in a country like Nigeria.
ONCE AGAIN, TIME WILL TELL!!!
