The business called Nigeria – Blueprint Newspapers Limited

“Sà á bí olóògùn-ún ti wí.” Means, “call it up exactly as the Creator of spell directed”.

To understand Nigeria you need to understand where it comes from. In 1900 Great Britain officially took over responsibility for the administration of all of what we now know as Nigeria from the Niger Company. And then, over the years, British protectorates were gradually established throughout the area.

In 1914 the protectorates were merged to form a Nigeria. In fact, there is one additional detail that needs to be mentioned. The British government paid £ 865,000 to take over the territories from the Niger Company. A huge amount in 1900. So let’s establish a simple truth. The British didn’t travel halfway around the world just to promote democracy. Nigeria started out as a business.

For them, between a company and a government. Incidentally, the Niger Company still exists today, only it is known by a different name, Unilever.

But this is another story.

What is balanced in a nation bitterly divided across religious lines, but richly blessed, but so abused by its leaders that the followers are blinded by the tactics of divide and rule that our colonial masters have left us. Today I ask 80% of my readers what good has a Muslim or a Christian presidency to us, Nigeria is worse off, Boko Haram devastated, kidnappers who are graduates are doing theirs in the south, bandits are doing theirs. Nigeria is business, big business!

We are so blinded by the fact that when we fill out forms one has to be either Christian / Muslim and some nasty variables have become ingrained that even an armed robber filling out a form inevitably comes to terms with a belief and must identify an ethnicity, these indices are as useless as they come. With all these Christians in the Parastals, they are better as agencies, or should I cause more controversy as to how a Christian leader is better than a Muslim leader who steals more, we are not the same Nigerians who enmassed Abiola despite his beliefs. Well, some of the answers to my postulates are like trade secrets, well be so busy.

What’s the problem with Nigeria? ‘She’. The problem with Nigeria is you and me! A business gone wrong, trust issues, no profit or profit reserved for only a few.

Nigeria is ideally one of the best places to live, it is not a police state like the so-called western democracies. I can urinate anywhere in Nigeria and I won’t be punished or arrested, I can get a ladder and climb the electricity pylons and change the phases of the electricity. What kind of business?

Many people had seen some form of change in Mr. Buhari for good reasons. Many of us had lost hope in the system, the structure, the leadership, but every day it is becoming clear that Nigeria can only be an empty plastic cup to keep a cup of coffee cold or hot because the business conditions were not well defined , the partnership was not properly negotiated.

We run a business with no directional leadership, the business called Nigeria has no leadership and no people who have collectively produced economic prosperity, industrial strength, intellectual pride and dynamism. Our business is a circus of both leadership and citizenship.

What kind of business can thrive without rapid infrastructure development, rapid human resource development, and health care, with approximately 50,000+ graduates expected annually and only 3% getting a job while the remaining 97% grows slowly over time? an unemployed lot with superfluous qualifications and no business education.

The business called Nigeria lacks education, health and development with all the wealth, we breed terrorists, frustrated young men, sad mothers, seniors who curse the business every day for refusing to give them their dividends, children without hope on the future in the face of public debt services and kidnappings.

This is the business called Nigeria, the rich, the poor and everyone cry and laugh almost at the same time; the difference is the swing of the pendulum. The great Nigerian man makes a law, those who want to become Nigerians or are already great men immediately look for a way to break the law; he explores loopholes and escape clauses, like the immunity clause used to steal.

Ordinary citizens would do it their own way, they would stand in line with no apology, they would turn around on an expressway, stop in the middle of the street to say hello to a long lost friend with no parking.

The pain of this essay, after all, there are millions of Nigerians in this business who want to be good for all the right reasons. These Nigerians, who are not easy to understand because they will not give bribes, all of their actions are in accordance with tradition, good norms and rationality of society. Most of them are old today, but also a few young, and live mostly in rural areas, but some also in urban areas.

They are generally good and tribal-free, they believe in the principles of life and let live. These Nigerians are neither the lowest power women nor the wallet men like you and me. They strive daily to stay patriotic and dedicated to Nigerian business despite the reality, they are disciplined and hardworking and they fight against the harsh reality that as patient dogs they may never have more bones.

These groups of Nigerians are suffering from the Nigerian Experiment because the greater majority are unable to curb greed and that you and you are unable to be fair and rational about other people’s perspectives, opinions, positions and interests be.

My ongoing inability to make sacrifices for the common good and your unwillingness to respect our institutions means that the problem with Nigeria will persist unless others stand as a people and choose to fight for what is right belongs to Nigeria.

Mutual distrust is a stink, we all live a pretext, census numbers are a belief / ethnic matter, once a list is made let’s look at who is Muslim / Christian, and from Kano or Imo. We are in trouble, BIG trouble, as there is no way out of this whole business of phobic Christianization / Islamization. Express trains all over the world, locomotive it is in Nigeria, until we realize what our problems really are, the churches and mosques would increase and so our sufferings will increase too, we are really ready to problem about our mediocrity of fasting / praying go out? Mentality, and you know that a mother’s husband is a father if the spell is not performed as directed, if the terms and conditions are not discussed, negotiated and adhered to, story to story and – only time will tell.
