FIRST DRAFT OF OP ED JOURNAL

Coleagues, Midwives, administrator, all concerned worldpulsarians Please kindly look through and comment, they are seriously needed by me.

Expert say there may be no Nigeria after 2013. Today every clan wants to go there own way and we are afraid of the this prediction.

The incessant and sporadic outburst of rebels under different guises in Nigeria under calls for sober reflection and transparency because lack of respect for constituted authority, distrust and violence is a signal of total collapse of any nation.

The latest display by an Islamic fundamentalist led by a 39 year old Jihadist, Mohammed Yusuf in Northern part of Nigeria. This does not come as a surprise because there are several groups in Nigeria clamoring for one thing or the other, Yusuf came up with Boko Haram which loosely translated means ‘No to Western Education’.
It is pertinent to note that every utterance, act and move of Nigerian leaders indicate that in the last twenty years, Nigerian leaders are unequivocally saying no to western education and its outgrowth; such as potable water, constant source of electricity, infrastructural, educational sector and medical facilities advancement.

Yusuf Mohammed was a sorcerer patronized by power hungry politician, he had more than 540,000 followers, it was rumored that he could float and suspend mid air while meditating. He studied in Saudi, used by-product of the Western education, the case of someone keeping malice with the soil but walks on the fence. He cruised about in latest car that was not manufactured by his faith, had a computer set and manufactures ammunition in a mosque, Yusuf lived in affluence his followers wallowed in abject penury, in the pocket of the corpse of his emaciated followers were nuts and fruits on which they survived.

Boko Haram had been in existence since 1995, alleged that 80 kilometers of land was allotted to them in Borno State used to train rebels. There were twenty one security reports issued by the security agencies. A three page letter, with reference number26/PERS/13/2009 dated July 15, written to the governor titled Threatening situation to peace and security of the state posed by Mohammed Yusuf and his disciples, but was ignored. The violence that followed claimed more than a thousand burnt every school in sight, 20 churches and properties worth millions of naira.

Nigerian leaders undermine and continuously work to eliminate sources of western education and civilization a painful indication that they are inadvertently declaring no to western education. Important infrastructures like good roads, potable water, and power supply are outgrowth of western education; these are in short or no supply.

Nigerians do not expect our leaders to keep goatie beards and wear three quarters trousers like Jihadists before we understand their ideals, the attitudes of our leaders speak volume, education is the only liberating agent of the masses. Presently the best Nigerian University is not among the World top 6,000 universities, in Africa, the best in Nigeria, University of Benin ranked 61. Nigerian lecturers are on strike, no solution in sight.
Nigeria’s health sector is in deplorable condition that even our leaders are afraid to check their BP in any public hospital. The roads are not motor able, with looming declaration of state of emergency, it is locally known as death trap.

Power supply is the worst hit with 148million Nigerians managing 1000mega watts; we eagerly await the presidential miracle of December 2009 promise fulfilled of generation of 6000mega watts. Companies like Unilever, Dunlop, OK foods, Schlumberger moved the administrative heads to Ghana-operational base in Ghana, warehouse in Nigeria. Manufacturing Association of Nigeria deduces that 820 manufacturing firms have been forced out of business in the past eight years-the cost of diesel for generating set is prohibitive.

Nigeria leaders are hypocritical by nature, they hate criticism especially from respectable world citizens; it is high time nations all over the world joined hands with outspoken Nigerians to expose corrupt practices. Utterances of Mrs. Clinton caused unsettled ripples on August 12, 2009 but our leaders took the right step afterwards, sacred cows in banks were sacked.

Well meaning world citizens should assist Nigerian activist to set up camera and spy on our leaders, to record election and important things, accountability and transparency is the watchword.

your help is needed URGENTLY

Hi Cristi,

Please I need your help with the final draft please.

Thanks a lot.

Expert say there may be no Nigeria after 2015. Unified Quest 2008, a war games test conducted by United States military in May 2008 was to ascertain how USA military will respond to war in parts of Africa including Nigeria. www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=14783

In an article written by Mr. Daniel Volman, Director of the African Research Project in Washington DC, the Nigerian situation was of the predicate for possible war in 2013.

Therefore, plan to create a new military command for Africa; Unites States Africa Command, 2013 war date according to the article was a test of how AFRICOM could respond to crisis in Nigeria in even of rival or rebels fight in Niger Delta.

In retrospect, the US predicted the imminent break up of Nigeria in 2005, was vehemently criticized by our leaders.

The incessant and sporadic outburst of rebels under different guises in Nigeria under calls for sober reflection and transparency because lack of respect for constituted authority, distrust and violence is a signal of total collapse of any nation.

The latest display by an Islamic fundamentalist led by a 39 year old Jihadist, Mohammed Yusuf in Northern part of Nigeria. Boko Haram means ‘No to Western Education’ and total Sharia in Nigeria with 48% Christians!
It is pertinent to note that every utterance, act and move of Nigerian leaders indicate that in the last twenty years, Nigerian leaders are unequivocally saying no to western education and its outgrowth; such as potable water, constant source of electricity, infrastructural, educational sector and medical facilities advancement.

Yusuf Mohammed was a sorcerer patronized by power hungry politicians, he had more than 540,000 followers, rumored he could float, suspend mid air while meditating. He cruised about in latest car not manufactured by his faith, had a computer set and manufactures ammunition in a mosque.

There were twenty one security reports issued by the security agencies. A three page letter, with reference number26/PERS/13/2009 dated July 15, written to the governor titled; threatening situation to peace and security of the state posed by Mohammed Yusuf and his disciples, but was ignored.

Militants from Niger Delta become millionaires from monies generated through ransom from kidnapping job. Militants demand Bayelsa sovereign nation. Presently playing hides and seeks with Amnesty.

Oodua People’s Congress from the West is clamoring for Yoruba state; the Eastern brethren want Biafra nation and factional leaders ready to segregate but forget to generate leaders for the pieces.

Leaders undermine and continuously work to eliminate sources of western education and civilization a painful indication that they are inadvertently declaring no to western education. Important infrastructures like good roads, education, the best Nigerian University is not among the World top 6,000 universities, potable water, and power supply are outgrowth of western education.

Nigeria leaders are hypocritical by nature, hate criticism from respectable world citizens; it is high time nations all over the world joined hands with outspoken Nigerians to expose corrupt practices, we demand accountability from public office holders, it is of public concern we want no war!

Utterances of Mrs. Clinton caused unsettled ripples on August 12, 2009 but our leaders took the right step afterwards, sacred cows in banks were sacked, slumbering Economic Financial Crime woke up.

Well meaning world citizens should assist Nigerian activists to set up camera and spy on our leaders, video evidenced of August 7, 2009 showed Mohammed Yusuf in chains while minutes later he was killed in gun duel! Foul play

Dear PHELLONER,
My prayer daily is that our leaders become more sensitive to the plight of the led. It is really affecting our lives. The rebranding logo of Nigeria is; great people great nation but I always think it should be; good leaders + good people = great nation.
