DO YOU LOVE NIGERIA? ARE YOU READY TO DIE FOR NIGERIA?
How can a country test the patriotizm of its citizens? What do you think? Please try to answer this question before reading on. In my opinion, it is through the number of its citizens that are ready to pick up arms voluntarily, and defend its territorial integrity, if the country is attacked. You will surely agree with me that nothing is more valuable than life. Do you agree with me? How many people can the Federal Government count on today to pick up arms happily, voluntarily and defend its territory incase of attack? Are you ready to pick up arms and die defending the integrity of Nigeria? Please answer before reading on. It is very important.
ONE NIGERIA. ONE NATION. WHO IS IT BENEFITTING? AT WHO’S EXPENSE?
If you answer yes, you are either out of your mind, or most likely from the north, or you benefit tremendously from the present regime and structure, or all of the above. Personally, I am not ready to do that now, and I will never do it! And, I am sure millions of Nigerians will not too. Mind you, I am not saying that one’s country is not worth dying for, but not today’s Nigeria. Olorun ma je! So, who wants to die for today’s Nigeria? Are the Ndi-Igbos that the Federal Government massacred mercilessly between 1967-1970, and not long ago again in the north, expected to carry up arms and defend Nigeria’s integrity? Or, does the Federal Government rely on the oppressed, terrorised, suppressed, colonised Niger deltans out of patriotizm and gratitude to do that?
I am 100% sure that if Nigeria is attacked today by a foreign country, instead of voluntarily carrying up arms, and lay down their lives defending it, in contrast, a large number will be glad to collaborate with the “enemy?” for free. Millions will cross to the other side. It is unfortunate, though, it is the bitter truth, that after the forced and unequal marriage between the south and the north, known as “amalgamation” in 1914, the Federal Government can only rely on a very few to defend it. If any senior government official disagrees with my assertion, I openly challenge him to conduct an independent opinion poll in different parts of the country, and make the result known to the public.
As I have already said, personally, I can’t even risk my health; talk less of my life for the integrity of the present Nigeria. However, if an enemy attacks Yoruba land, as a true son of Oduduwa, I am ready to carry up arms voluntarily and fight till my last blood. Oduduwa Republic is totally different from Nigeria.
The bitter truth is that only the north or northerners will carry up arms to defend Nigeria’s integrity simply because their existence and survival depend on Nigeria’s existence. Today, only the north is for the integrity of Nigeria because the Niger delta oil is their lifeblood. Only the descendants of Othman Dan Fodio care most whether Nigeria breaks or not, because they benefit most from the present Nigerian political system and constitution. It is the lazy, barbaric, backward, illiterate, unproductive, parasitic and lovers of Bin Laden that today’s Nigerian political structure favours most, and they will do everything within their capacity to maintain the status quo. Political events unfolding now are an evidence of my assertion.
You probably need further explanation. From my analysis, with the present political structure and constitution that Nigeria operates, all things being equal, if a presidential election is held at any time t, at least in the next 50 years, the probability or chance of a northerner becoming the president is 75%, compared to 20% for the S.W., and 2.5% each for the S.E. and S.W. respectively. This data can also be interpreted like this: If 10 consecutive presidential elections are held from today in Nigeria based on the present constitution and political structure, the north has a good chance of producing the president 7-8 times, the S.W. 2-3 times, the chances of the Ndi-Igbos and the S.S. Is practically zero. You might want to know how I arrived at these figures or percentages. I will definitely explain.
