It pains me when I see Nigerians, Africans being treated like sub-humans by countries that cannot hold up a candle to what God have blessed us with.
In Africa God deposited everything needed to create the most prosperous and the most powerful continent on the face of the earth. We have more than enough yet we have nothing.
The world depends on Africa to survive yet the world treat Africans like below sub-human.
Why shouldn’t they?
When we have a Buhari in Abuja who will stifle and frustrate his very best in the area of auto mechanics simply because Innoson is a Christian Igbo? Why would they not treat African like sub-humans when with our plenty, we cannot invest in our people instead send them out to become beggars in the land of the poor. Yes, the West and the Far East where our people run to for greener pastures are poor. They are beneath Africa in every ramifications except for leadership and direction.
Africa decided to limit ourselves with our greed, our senseless religious unrests created by the West using a few gullible ones amongst us to ensure Africa never grows. How can Buratai in all honesty claim he and the Nigerian leadership have no hand in Boko Haram when everything happening seems to indicate that they do? Who enlists former terrorists into their Army? We hear stories of our soldiers being redeployed from villages just before Boko Haram attacks, we hear of Generals redeployed for complaining of lack of equipment to fight, we hear stories that makes one wonder so many things. Clearly, Boko Haram can outgun the Nigerian Army yet every year billions are apportioned for Defense and the money end up in a few pockets which includes the pockets of the real sponsors of the unrest in Nigeria. They probably supply better guns to Boko Haram insurgents than what our troops get.
Giant of Africa.
What a shame.
The same Innoson who Buhari and Nigeria had tried to force out of business and who Buhari ignored and went to commission a Korean company in Nigeria is still the same person that has ensured our Alpha Jets are still flying against Boko Haram. But he is a Christian and an Igbo and as such, unacceptable by Buhari.
What a shame.
Why would the West treat us anything less than Sub-human when we have a Buhari who values cattle life and wellbeing over human life and wellbeing?
Nigerians made donations to aid Nigerians now we are faced with the Corona Outbreak and Buhari who is not even doing anything for the people decides to share the donations to only the North ignoring the South. In Imo State, they visited Ikeduru, shared to 20 party members and broadcasted that they have shared to everybody yet a Nigerian in an Asian country the other day was showing parcels of food given to him, an immigrant by the poor government whereas the Giant of Africa is still playing sectional and religious politics. Why then will the West not make mockery of Nigeria? Why will they not mock Africa when the African Giant is a shameless bigot who cannot tell his left from his right? Why won’t Chinese police kick Africans from their homes into the cold whereas in Nigeria, their nationals walk about with police escort? When they maltreat our people, our government turns a blind eye. Even poor Indians become Lords when they come to Nigeria and Africa.
What a shame.
Even the Americans and Europeans treat our people better than the Indians, Lebanese and Chinese who are no better than us.
I weep every time I think of home. I wonder why God cursed us with such leaders. It pains me to know that our people are also the instruments to their enslavement but if we kick our Buhari today, who is better?
When can we have a true patriotic Nigeria like Umaru Musa Yar’adua in Aso Rock? A Nigerian who saw every Nigerian as one and equal. When will the North realize that it doesn’t matter who is in Aso Rock as long as Nigeria moves forward? When will we scrutinize our prospective leaders and force them to debates rather than elect or rig in people who showcased their emptiness even before they got into power?
I am Mgbeke, I am an African woman, a strong woman, a prosperous entity created by God for exploits. I am black, proudly black and I love everything about my Africanness and my blackness.
If I should ask President Muhammadu Buhari, before you became a Muslim, you were first black, you were first African. The Prophet Muhammad is not black neither was he African and Christ Jesus was neither black nor African yet we kill ourselves over their imported gospel. We fail to embrace the peace they preach and rather took the war between the lines and turn those twisted lines against our people.
I weep for Africa because I know Buhari and his religiously and sectionally blinded friends will never listen to me and our people will always remain open to be controlled by them.
What a shame.
Giant of Africa. What a shame
