I have been reading in different forums how APC members continue to attack the lackluster regime of General Buhari, who’s maximum rule under his party, APC, has turned Nigeria into a ragtag country full of insurgents and poverty. We are here in a near state of war and one can only imagine how Somalia was some 10 years ago with different warlords holding their regions. And recently, the country has turned into a place of common breaking-and-entry where businesses of individuals and warehouses housing fovernment palliatives are being attacked daily by the suffering and even enjoying masses.
The convocation ceremony of this act was ironically General Buhari’s fatua against the government of President Jonathan where he said he would make the country ungovernable and that babbons and monkeys will be soaked in blood. Today, General Buhari is the one soaked in blood from his own killings and killings by his own religious and tribal affiliates. He wakes in blood and sleeps in blood. He walks on blood and sits on blood. He is bloodied all over.
I read with utter dismay how some APC members support the #EndSars protest across most part of the southern swarth and how they condemn General Buhari’s freaking insolence in the face of the brewing anarchy. To me, and in my own opinion, this is a hellish contradiction. For every buharist and for every supporter or member of APC, there is an accomplice to the many civil crimes of Buhari. He is the alter ego of APC hence every APC member fuels his continues legitimacy in power. Nothing will be more lacerating and symbolic if Buhari is left with his tiny inconsequential minority cabal to be the only one remaining in APC.
His party members must all turn against him since he has since retired himself from leaving up to the “Change’ expectation. We cannot now dabble into his measured feat in nepotism, tribalism and religious bigotry where his section of the country profit not based on merit, but on affiliations. This brings tears to even the eyes of reasonable APC members who taught he will be president for all.
Elections will be lost because of him, just like in Edo State. The people will wash their hands from his evil party and let him and his goons remain there. The members enmasse will denounce their membership because of him.
States that were hitherto APC states will be won by other parties to send messages of total rejection. He would be stripped naked politically just as he and the cabal are stripping the once powerful Tinubu naked beginning from his bedroom Lagos where he said he still the Jagaban. (We have challenged him to walk the streets unguarded)
In a nutshell, those who claim to be APC members and still have the temerity to continue to condemn General Buhari’s conducts have identity problems of the moral version. You cannot openly be condemning prostitution while you live large from the proceed of the immoral act which your daughter brings home.
I am convinced, persuaded and sure APC will certainly be destroyed beyond repair by self implosion, but let’s quickly aid it’s demise and put the bloodless carcass on the doorsteps of Aso Rock where General Buhari lives so that he can see with his twin eyes the product of his design.
Buhari”s Odious Regime.
Elempe Dele, Edo.
This regime forget how to respect life; they constantly live lives of false presence. Even when we see the down-turn of the economy in depression and recession from our daily experiences, they continue to give us nervous World Bank false projections.
The political big fishes always threaten to frighten down the small fishes anytime they say the truth. The Endsars protest exposed their vulnerabilities. They were beaten.
Buhari, even in his abject incompetence, would do everything to sustain himself, carrying gun and knives and cudgel to axphixaite us. But woe to these political oppressors, they are rather eating their own tomorrow. Some have had darkness covered their lives and the chains of captivity stuck around their necks. Guiltiness, like cursed stones, their failures, their lies and incompetence, is ever resting on their conscience…the Garba Shehus, Amaechis, Akpabios, Anochie…they see black continually but call it white. These are politicians with poor commissions. We are living in concrete jungles here in Nigeria; life is worth nothing… a generation almost half living on nothing, nobody cares. The country represent corruption or corruption represents the country and violence, bringing the worst out of us all.
We are mostly trying to live our lives out, sacrificing our existence on the alter of silence and learn only how to feed our kids. For those who are better off, when they laugh, to us, it’s like they are clowns.
There are many things the politicians have forgotten: how to respect life.
“I am talking to all those who are daily caught up in the struggle; even ladies who use prostitution to hustle. The struggle continues…
If you are reading this, remember the politicians got there through your votes. We must learn these things from the beginning, not to be given to tribal affiliations through sentiments. Are these politicians not bad enough? Is it not known to us never bite the hands that feeds you? What are they doing? They empower themselves through our common misery. But all of you shall witness when they shall all fall, one day. The struggle is not over until the battle is over.”
Tell me why we can’t be free? Can’t we be what we want to be? We want to be free from these liars who have nothing pressed on their seared consciences. Are they roadblocks hampering our way forward? They would do somethings but we shall do everything. We can’t be stopped, we must vote them out and forge ahead, taking along those who are willing. We have no love for them for they are resistors to our common good.
This is a rebel song, are we ready for the revolution?
Buhari Led Administration; We Are Getting There, “The Untold Story”.
Since the inception of his regime, our people have suffered untold loses, Hardship, human toll and economic crisis continued to unfold with dastardly frequency.
Yet, government officials are living in luxury. The regime sees the people as objects, while it rakes the national wealth. While scandals have become commonplace, theft and plunder have become the modus operandi of the government.
Buhari’s regime has brought the people into material desperation. This has further entrenched poverty and mystery for a people whose lot has become drudgery. Their awful conditions have exposed the rottenness of the neo-colonial arrangement and its blood relative of neo-liberal globalization. As squalor and mystery are scattered across the country, so too there is a growing ferment of people’s consciousness. As their children are in rags, out of school, and they live in shanties, as hunger stalks them everywhere, as starvation wreaks havoc, they are not drawing appropriate conclusions while the incessant ASUU strike continue.
Notwithstanding such a despicable situation, has subjected the people to damnation and the most insidious of exploitations and primitive accumulations with sadistic fanaticism, have become ever more rabid in their looting of the national treasury. We have seen attacks on the living standards of the people in the form of the increased in charges on the usage of call credit and internet data, cuts in social wages and the increment in food stuffs.
The masses are suffering from the pangs of these anti-people policy regime, as virtually everything have been butchered by inflation. Now, it is impossible to maintain a decent living standards in Nigeria, although the vast majority of the people are subjected to low living standards. But the regime doesn’t care.
Faced with this reality, the people are awakening to the fact that there is only one way for survival: the role to social revolution which would resolve the contradictions and usher in a dynamic period. Now it is clear that the question of unrelenting struggle must be placed at the heart of the agenda.
It this realisation that has pushed certain sections of the country into combat mode against the parasitic cabal, as evidenced by groups protesting daily in the country. These class battles expressed the temperature in the country. The rural masses demand a better life and the people want dignity and justice.
Like all reactionary contraptions, trembling with fear, the regime thinks it can drown the popular process in blood. But it cannot arrest the popular wave by unleashing violence. What history has shown time and time again is that the Nigerian masses have proved capable of the task to decisive deal with challenges thrown up to them. We saw it with Jonatham. It will be no different with Buhari and his vandals.
As the struggle is on, each one would vigilantly use their talent to mobilize the people. Those who can use guitar must use it to compose battle songs for the resistance. Those who are poets must begin writing poetry. If you are a teacher, you must use your skills to teach people about the exigency of the historical march. If you are members of the vanguard, organize, build, and teach the people while we struggle.
This is the general attitude we must take towards the crisis. It is that which would prove effective in winning social emancipation.
Comrades, friends, our old people, students and teachers, progressive vanguard and popular forces, we must all rise to save the fatherland or perish under the jackboot of tyranny. The hour of national redemption has struck. No matter the price the sacrifice is worth it. History has posed before us two options: the fatherland or death- the choice is clear!
Arise O Nigerians.

Insecurity: The Gun Control Debate In Nigeria.
By Elempe Dele
Today, in Nigeria, there are some elements that do not subscribe to the entity; they are laws onto themselves. They have a boundariless Quasi State within this country and their activities are basically illegal. These individuals and groups fall into different categories: terrorists, bandits, armed robbers, kidnappers…their activities have been busy trying to make Nigeria one of the most dangerous place in the world to live. I will not want to go into the known fact of how the tribilistic tendencies of General Buhari helped fuel this anomie, nor his broken-egg approach towards security without any single evidence of hope for the past 5 years.
“I am internalizing the issue of insecurity concerning the huge debate to whether gun possession and acquisition should be made legal (though with rigorous profiling to help control it’s proliferation) I think now is the time to push for the idea of citizens having the rights and opportunities to acquire guns because of the level of insecurity that has become a pall around the country. Of course there are debates as to whether these guns won’t be proliferated or get into wrong hands. Yes, this concern cannot be discounted totally, however, the need for citizens to own guns now outweighs the fear of the aftermath of this ownership.”
The average Nigerian citizen who is law abiding and that cannot afford personal police protection is at the mercies of bandits, armed robbers, kidnappers and terrorists. Our highways are now chessboards for kidnappers and roadmaps to untimely deaths. The citizens look helplessly and defenceless as these opportunists hold their lives hostage. It is now a miracle in Nigeria to travel and get to destination…some even go as far as celebrating journey mercies with church thanksgiving.
My argument for gun possession is that if we are mostly in possession of legal guns, we won’t be totally rendered defenceless during these spades of attacks that has characterized the Nigerian state. Imagine in a bus while traveling, 3-7 citizens in the vehicle have their guns with them, in your neighborhood, virtually everyone has, in villages where these terrorists and bandits operate, the villagers have the kinds of guns the assiliants have, or famers have enough modern guns to wade of these Fulani killers, kidnappers and rapists…I think the security situation will be a story with different dimension. It is unthinkable that those criminals who possess these illegal guns use them against the law abiding citizens without any form of resistance. In the West were possession of gun is legal, you can’t just go to compromise someone’s house in a bid to rob him without getting shot. So this has helped in checking robbery incidents to a large extent.
In some instances where we use vigilante groups to complement the police, they are issued mostly Dane guns as against AK47 that these criminals have. It’s like fighting a man with a gun using a cudgel.
Until we take a serious relationship look at the issuance of sophisticated guns for the personal protection of the citizens, the issue of insecurity in Nigeria will be part of our sorry story for a long while.
