Greetings, folks!

Once again, I speak out against the undemocratic impunity  of Nigerian leaders. I have touched on this twin-topic so many times, that I can’t recall. Since you are already on this site, you can easily browse to them. But I can give you a link to one of the more serious ones, thus:

My point of attack this time is a legislative bill on covid-19. It is presently pending in the nation’s House of Representatives. Among other draconian elements, the bill seeks to confiscate private real-property of citizens. They to use them to establish covid-19 quarantine and treatment facilities around the nation. This contravenes several sections of the nation’s constitution. It suggests that our lawmakers don’t even understand the constitution that they are supposed to be the custodians of. If they did, they would know that they have no such power. They cannot disregard the nation’s number one law, the constitution, when they make new laws. On the other hand, they do understand all this, and still consistently disregard our constitution. Then, that gives powerful credence to my position that they operate with criminal-impunity, meeeeeeeeeen!!!

Sometimes, our lootmakers may come up with some sensible bills, you know! Unfortunately, the impunity virus in them forces them to spoil the good bills with some draconian elements of lawless impunity. They behave as if they are making those laws for slaves or idiots, meeeeeeeen!!!

Here’s what I suggest as a solution to make Speaker Gbajabiamila and his House to quickly drop the draconian elements of their covid-19  bill. Since they feel that confiscation of private property is such a great idea, let’s refer to an adage of the Igbo race of Nigeria. It says: “Dibia kata aja, otunye nke ya.” This translates to: When a traditional priest or medicine man, or herbalist, prescribes and lists all manner of requirements for traditional sacrificial rites, he must first bring forth his own contributions. Makes a lot of sense, doesn’t it? Of course, it does!

With this wise idea of my Igbo forefathers, I hereby challenge the Speaker of Nigeria’s House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, to make the first move. We cannot confiscate from him, so, we demand that he donates one of his countless property. And then, he must convince his colleagues in the House to donate their own property. After all, they acquired all those property all over the nation with our money that they steal. Then, after their donations, maybe we would allow them to pursue their lawless-law. Meanwhile, their kinds and they are looting away all the national funds that are supposed to provide those facilities, meeeeen!!!

A question that resounds around Nigeria now is: Where are all the covid-19 management and palliative funds? Our so-called lawmakers are not keying into this quest. They are not trying to find out what happened to all those funds. The motherfuckers are not looking for how to raise more funds to add to those ones and acquire their motherfucking covid-19 centers. Instead, they are talking about confiscating private property, meeeeeeeeeeen!!!

The Federal Government has obviously refused to release the covid-19 palliative funds to the citizens. And, it appears that the FG is not doing well at all with the covid-19  management funds, either. We’ve heard of all the donations and other sources of contribution to the covid-19 funds. But we still don’t have enough to test substantial number of citizens for covid-19 (still disgracefully under 20,000 tests so far), in addition to other deficiencies. Why can’t the FG acquire the needed facilities, huh? Why the fuck do the lawmakers even consider to make private citizens to take over the responsibilities of the government, through forceful acquisition of private property, huh?

And, if the federal government continues to dilly-dally on the matter, the National Assembly should perform it’s oversight duty. It should prevail on the FG to do it’s job. Instead, Gbajabiamila decided to make an unlawful-law to force private citizens to do the job of the FG. Meanwhile, covid-19 funds are are being looted away.

So, yes, indeed; this time, I challenge the Reps to lead by example. They should donate some of their gazillion houses and business buildings for covid-19 facilities. It is a very simple and reasonable challenge, starting with the Speaker of the House who came up with the draconian bill.

You and I know that if those people are allowed to pass that bill into an unlawful-law, they would, as usual, be above that law. No administrator or enforcer of the law would dare to touch any property belonging to the almighty lawmakers. They won’t confiscate the property of all the other mortal gods of Nigeria who are above all the Nigerian laws either. I bet you what would happen if we ask the lawmakers to show some goodwill and donate their own property first. They would drop that bill quicker and faster than anybody could drop a piece of red-hot iron. You know that I ain’t bullshiting ya, meeeeeeen!!!
