Nigeria as a country has served all of its useful and useless purposes and is inevitably to be sold for good. I have spoken. Not only can I understand the gradual sale of Nigeria’s assets in the name of monopoly capitalism of cement, salt and sugar.
In my opinion, it should be more profitable to sell the whole country in one fell swoop. There would be no shortage of buyers.
It is no longer a rumor that a good number of Nigerians are richer than the country, and I pray that these wealthy Nigerians should be made to bid for the exclusive property of the entire country.
The amount of money that can be made from such a tender will bring in so much money that all world records will be erased.
With the money they earn, Nigerians can then enjoy life, being owned by a businessman, in abundance.
The children of rich men enjoy it, don’t they?
Those Nigerians who refuse to belong to a rich man should be shipped across borders as internally displaced persons. I am sure that a business guru like Alhaji Aliko Dangote will be very interested in buying all of the land.
The catch is that the BUA man, Abdulsamad Isyaku Rabiu, would try to match Dangote dollar for dollar, cement for cement, salt for salt, and sugar for sugar.
I’m afraid this war may not be as sweet as sugar!
GLO Fame boss Mike Adenuga might even decide to get into the fight and pollinate all competitors with bids per second, sorry, reckoning!
The billionaire’s ex-governors, especially the one desperate to become president, can pay anything to own Nigeria in a bullion van.
Now is the time to make money by getting these super-super-rich Nigerians to pay good money to buy the land.
Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has built a reputation as an unequivocal buyer of real estate, and what better real estate package can there be than the vastness of Nigeria instead of just Otta Farm!
Imagine the amount of money that goes into buying and selling Nigeria in this type of tender!
Why the sale of Nigeria is so important today is that no less an eminent Excellency than Edo State Governor Godwin Obaseki has just revealed that the country has resorted to printing money to make ends meet.
According to Governor Obaseki, Nigeria last month printed all of the N60 billion that states are supposed to share.
Let’s not forget that printing money used to be the style of Idi Amin Dada of Uganda, the conqueror of the British Empire.
Rather than reducing the central bank governor Godwin Emefiele to an ordinary printer, that is, a money printer, he should take on the bigger task of checking the accounts of potential buyers in Nigeria.
We shouldn’t have dud checks after Nigeria was bought and sold. The sale of Nigeria should be done conscientiously so that what happened in a southeastern city does not affect Nigeria. A Catholic church in a city in Niger that is said to remain nameless had its annual bazaar sale.
A new boy out of nowhere appeared on stage and bought all of the items and attracted a crowd of praise singers and otimkpus who promptly called him “Unbeatable!”
After buying a new item, the crowd shouted “Unbeatable,” and the community workers promptly offered him a full roast chicken, which he regularly passed on to his praise singers for immediate chew.
After “Unbeatable” bought up all of the items on display, he asked the community workers to organize a bus to send the materials to his home, and it was taken care of immediately.
Money answers all things, as the good book in Ecclesiastes says.
Now this: When the goodies were brought to his home, the mother of the new child on the block immediately gave the alarm: “My son has no job. Please tell the venerable father to come
and take back the materials my son can’t pay for even in two hundred years. “
Of course the materials have been withdrawn, but the unrepentant “Unbeatable” was still upbeat as he told anyone who would listen, “If someone thinks what I’ve done is easy, let them step forward to my record to break!”
In this record-breaking Nigerian sale deal, some Nigerian buyers could come up with a 419 strategy not dissimilar to Unbeatable.
They must be beaten to their game by what economic leaders call due diligence by Governor Emefiele of the CBN.
The clear and present danger is that China, which has lent so much money to the country, could take over the giants of Africa before our eyes if Nigeria is not sold fast enough.
There in the books we signed our sovereignty when taking out the loans. I know that a large number of Nigeria’s super-patriots are already at odds with me over their campaign for wholesale Nigerian sales. My only answer for these Nigerian patriots can only be found in the ancient words of Samuel Johnson: “Patriotism is the villain’s last refuge.”
There is no yakking patriotism on the matter: Nigeria is long overdue for sale.
