By Elempe Dele, Edo.

Some people often ask, “how did we get here…?” It is a question that have some transcendental, supernatural, spiritual and quasi-mystery dimensions to it. They are beyond mere explanations. But we are partly where we are today because we left the political space to be dominated by some immature necessary lots like Lauretta, Femi Adesina, Garba Shehu, Orji Kalu, Chime and a host of other Buhari didirins…loud-mouthed, disoriented humans, insensitive to the plights of the commoners, myopic in their visions and limited in their thought-processes, inexperience and lack of understanding in a fiefdom ruled by the nitwit abacus-like of a supposedly president.

Today, the clear and present danger against our nationhood is Buhari and Buhari. He is a vacuum, and people, as well as nature, abhors vacuum.

Despite the lazy/mad tag, Nigeria is a country perpetually potentially great, but with the likes of Buhari and his cohorts, Nigeria has become a country permanently in some form of political and security crisis, regularly threatened with the prospect of failure, retreating from and devoid of democratic norms, lingers in the doldrum, advancing towards disintegration…yet some buharideens are applauding the sorry version of democracy Buhari is acting out, which is alien to any dutifully registered mind that ever went to school.

Under all sorts of stupid excuses, they are not troubled with the version of democracy when the government says openly it cannot obey court orders for personal and selfish interest, and by moral and legal implications, even lawyers are OK by it. Lawyers who are supposed to be arbiters in the temple of justice. Oh, they will tell you, nothing matters in politics, deal with human affairs and human interest, as well as the interest of the state. When morality is impaired, common sense becomes defective and ineffective.

The present Buhari administration is challenged by the overpowering issues of the rule of law, which has been debased, it faces insecurity, economic downturn, democratic tenets are avoided, mass killings by the state as witnessed in the cases of IPOB and Shiite protesters, corruption…and these cannot easily be wished away by the metamorphosized Keyamo and his ilks.

Until these thematic issues are confronted, and addressed, we cannot move forward and there won’t be need to consider this administration beyond a failed experience.

CITAD Advocates Use of Technology in the fight against Insurgency

Abba Dukawa, Kano.

The Executive Director Centre for Information Technology and Development (CITAD) Engineer Y.Z Yau has said that Its seem like government and its security agencies failed to restore peace in the country, Instead, they seem to be in a debate among themselves as to who can offer the most ridiculous explanation of their failure.

According to him “we are all aware that insecurity across the country has made nowhere in Nigeria a safe place in the country as Kidnapping, banditry, secessionist violence have all become common place that peace is the only illusive constant.

Engineer Y.Z Yau made the observation in a press conference held at CITAD Kano office on Wednesday.

Explained that for the government to curtail the insecurity there is need for security agencies to increasing use of digital technology in term of intelligensia sharing among agencies to upfront merchants of violence in the country adding that reequipping our army and intelligence agencies who have been underequipped this approach will help in minimize the nation security challenge for quite long.

Saying if these criminals can wage a campaign of terror and violence using Technology and intelligence, this means that government’s’ counter insurgency must also turn to be based on intelligence, but we have not seen this in the way that army and other agencies are prosecuting the campaign against insurgents.

In doing these, government should not indiscriminately monitor citizens to trample and desecrate their right to digital privacy.

People Don’t Get Over Their Problems By Running Away From Them. – Says Elempe Dele.

“To be careful about rhetorics from our leaders and even us concerning a looming civil war and or this country tilting towards a completely failed state is yet the best thing any patriot should do in an ideal situation.

However, the indices, statistics, and reality on ground must be looked at keenly so that we don’t try to wish away facts as if in them the truth of the sorry state we are will go away magically.

People don’t get over their problems by running away from them, they face them squarely. In a country were over 100 people, including security operatives are either killed or Kidnapped on weekly basis cannot be said not to be at the verge of a civil strife of sort. In a country where each nationality is hoisting their flags and printing their own currencies in serious Secession bids cannot be said to be in a state of peace.

In a country where a quasi-state like Boko Haram and Bandits hold large swarth of the country as their caliphates, collecting taxes and recruiting the willing and unwilling, cannot be said to be tranquil.

The misbegotten call those who tell it the way it is names of their own inventions, but they are those who live in lies and denials so we don’t really factor them into our candid national discussions. They are mostly small sects of blackmailers and gaslighted propagandists.

There is a simple curative lore to our problem; Buhari, who is totally absent, should resign from office with immediate effect and alacrity. He should handover to Prof. Osinbajo and let there be a convocation of a national conference to negotiate out our union.

The contraption does not seem to be working – since 1960, and it got worsened under General Buhari due to his nepotistic, tribalistic and religious tendencies. And on this basis, no united NIGERIA can be sort under him.

Coupled with his ineptitude, clannishness, incompetence, ailment, absenteeism, he is not fit for the job, which he has never been fit for.

Nnamdi Kanu’s Audio Message Of IPOB, Incitement, Childish Which Lacks Intellectual Impetus. – Elempe

Nigeria is not a small sect of people where you oversee as a mujahedeen. NIGERIA is a vast multi-ethnic nationalities with different cultures, different religious and different resources. The people are generally rebelling against Buhari’s unforced failures.”

Who Can Give Me Cooking Gas; Okay, Who Will?

 

A sustainable energy security in Nigeria will require a deliberate effort by government to deal. It will require a leadership that keeps the citizenry at the heart of all policy framings and execution. God has, on His part, allowed the fortunes of nature to be prodigiously generous to us as a nation.

For instance, with a massive 187 trillion cubit feet of proven gas deposit, the nation stands as a prominent member of states endowed with abundant natural gas. We therefore have no business depleting our forests in search of firewoods and charcoal. Our gas-fired power stations equally have no business shutting down due to unavailability of gas.

If gas is made available for domestic use, a lot of stress and dangers encountered in most rural homes would have been removed. Homes merely need to light their cookers whenever it’s time to prepare a meal. The day our nation succeeds in demystifying the secrets around gas – and in this case, gas for domestic uses, the world will stand still for us. As a matter of fact, we ought to start seeing at our enormous gas deposit as a national resource upon which solutions to many of our problems rests. This clearly is a matter of urgency.

Of course, it is not all gloom for the Nigerian liquefied natural gas. Mr President is doing a magnificent lot in trying to earn big dollars from gas. Although some consider it as an elitist project because some believe that the focus is not on our kitchens but on the other nations. It is difficult to disagree with mouthers of this concern given the challenges Nigerians perennially face accessing and enjoying what is theirs. But whether the philosophy of the project is elitist or populist, that our Country is pulling this off at this time is big news (reader may Google “Ajaokuta-Kaduna-Kano AKK” for more on this). And, frankly, this project is massive and cheering to the heart. It is a legacy project that a younger, vibrant and boundlessly ambitious successor should warm up to.

Many believe that the Executive Governor of Kogi State, Alhaji Yahaya Bello has eyes for youthful, resourceful and useful associates in governance that is indicative of what Nigerians are looking forward to. The attractions he holds for smart people offers a rich prospect for a well managed Nigerian energy mix. It is up to his admirers across the Country and around the world to stand strong and ensure he attains the golden fleece. They must resist the inducements peddled by corrupt billionaire agents of the power grabbing elites.
