…So…… Bola Ahmed Tinubu hoarded, stored Covid-19 Pandemic Palliatives DONATED by Local and International Organisations and Agencies for the relief of Nigeria’s desperate and long-suffering masses whose difficulties were exacerbated by the Covid-19 Pandemic induced shutdown of the Nigerian and Global economies.
Callous, unscrupulous Scavengers parading as Politicians (Governors, National and States Legislators) hoarded Bags of Rice, Indomie, Wheat, Oil and other supplies DONATED BY LOCAL AND INTERNATIONAL ORGANISATIONS AND AGENCIES for distribution to Nigerians as palliatives to ease their lack during the Covid-19 Lockdown.
They rebranded the items to either their individual names or that of their Political Parties and wanted to use them for elections, distribute them to the Voters also known as “the masses” as if they were Relief Food and Materials from Politicians who cared about them and want to alleviate their suffering. That happened in Nigeria.
The Politicians watched whilst Nigerians died, many from heartbreak, some by committing suicide because they literally snapped under the pressure and others dying because they either didn’t see food or couldn’t afford the food.
We saw Viral Videos of desperate Nigerians storming warehouses where the DONATED materials were stored when they discovered them, looting the Warehouses and burning some afterwards in their rampage.
We were alarmed, we expressed outrage at the wickedness of the Politicians, we condemned them, many wished and prayed for their death because of their wickedness and other iniquities committed against the poor and ordinary Nigerian and three years after that experience, the same wicked people who didn’t care that Nigerians were dying in large numbers (not just during the Covid-19 lock-down but have never cared about the masses though they LIE that they do) have the gumption to campaign for Political Office and appeal to their Victims to Vote for them.
As if that wasn’t enough insult to Nigerians, their Temerity, they approach Nigeria’s Supreme Court, urged and have now secured a “suspension of the deadline for the New Naira Swap” from the Supreme Court on the basis that the EXTENDED deadline is “anti-the masses” and that their citizens are “suffering hardship” as a consequence?
Nigeria is a Very Weird Contraption. Nigeria is a Sad, Sorry Contraption. She is.
It’s unarguable that Bola Ahmed Tinubu (through his Minions) is the driver of the pushback on the CBN Naira Swap timeline or is it deadline. The man has literally been foaming in the mouth, lamenting about the CBN deadline, moaning like the desperado that he is that the deadline (which was extended by 10 DAYS) was meant to SABOTAGE his (Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s) Presidential Campaign.
I am stunned not just by Tinubu’s hypocrisy and contradiction (considering that the Governor he chose to administer Lagos State on his instructions and directions, deprived the masses of access to provisions and Food DONATED by people and organisations) but I am stunned by the fact that many Tunnel Vissioned, clueless, naive and yes, Foolish Nigerians are not remembering the deprivation they suffered when they needed to be saved from hunger.
How can people forget or disregard the fact that Tinubu and his Minions like Malam Nasir El Rufai, Yahaya Bello, Kogi State Government and other State Governors and Politicians seized, hoarded DONATED Palliatives and watched them die because they either couldn’t see food or couldn’t afford the food they saw? How do you forget or disregard that?
Yes, the CBN Naira Swap deadline has obviously occasioned grave inconvenience and suffering in the Land, I get it, I am a Victim of the hardship, my life has been very negatively impacted by the CBN Naira Change and Swap Deadline, it’s caused all sorts of hardship, difficulties and shocks to commerce and livelihoods but it makes more sense I think, to ask Bola Ahmed Tinubu and/or his apologists, why they hold the intelligence of ALL Nigerians in this much contempt that they LIE about the real reason for Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s Presidential Organisation being THE ONLY ONE of the OVER 10 “Presidential Election Campaign Organisations so VEHEMENTLY AGAINST the CBN deadline.
I know that there are many Foolish people in Nigeria, i meet them EVERY DAY, I read what they write and share EVERY DAY on Facebook and Social Media, the idiocy some spew and the imbecilic writings of many but do people have to be Foolish because they are suffering?
My view is that even when people are suffering, Folly or Foolish reactions only amplify or compound the suffering because that’s what Foolish reactions do.
Like the Roman Mob, Nigerians are burning and looting public property, and they are vandalising infrastructure in their areas because they are “frustrated”, I watched scenes from Ibadan, Warring and other places on Channels T.V. and I was pained by the fact that what’s destroyed AREN’T property and homes owned by Nigeria’s Thieving Politicians but Street Lights, Traffic Lights, Government Offices and Public Property and the vandalising and destruction is by the people who know or should know that they need MORE of what they are destroying in their insanity and that the government wouldn’t replace or rebuild what they’ve destroyed expeditiously and that when or if they are rebuilt whenever they are, it would be at a very high cost to be funded by the State or Government Treasury.
If Nigerians are frustrated and some feel that they need to vent their frustration by burning, vandalising and looting, it makes sense doesn’t it to burn, vandalise and loot the Property or Homes of the Politicians who have in their corruption and the impunity of it, made life the misery that it is for most Nigerians, why to burn, vandalise and loot PUBLIC amenities, infrastructure and property that would be rebuilt using YOUR TAX MONEY. Can there be a more stupid thing than this as a reaction?
Word on the streets is that Bola Ahmed Tinubu has about N22 Billion “War Chest” in CASH stowed away for some years in Underground Vaults and basements, we’ve seen Videos of such storage of Naira Notes away from circulation because the money is for Vote buying and compromising elections and there are no good reasons not to believe the allegation that Tinubu known for his belief that he can do anything with or because of his Stupendous wealth isn’t planning to use stored money for the Presidential election, corrupting it with money.
The PDP has made the allegation that Tinubu is frustrated that because of the “New Naira” and the deadline for the “Naira Swap” and the monitoring of Money Lodgments by the EFCC, ICPC, DSS and the Financial Intelligence Unit, it would be difficult to get the God knows how many Hundreds of Billions of Naira into the Banking System to “run things” now and on Election Day, he’s unleashed his Dogs and oiled his Propaganda machinery to rally Nigerians by spinning their “suffering” to be Buhari’s fault DISREGARDING THE FACT THAT Tinubu has been bragging that HE MADE MUHAMMADU BUHARI PRESIDENT.
Yeah, Foolish Nigerians are listening to and believing Tinubu’s bullshit when they ought to be asking, WHAT MANNER OF SHAMELESS MAN would on one hand be priding himself over, boasting that he made Muhammadu Buhari President and on the other hand be bold-faced telling Nigerians that the man he made President and allowed to be so for nearly 8 years (whilst he waited for “his turn”) is worthy of vilification and then say that we should trust him to “build on Buhari’s Legacy”, the same Legacy he ridicules and castigates when convenient. What a Man. What a Consumate Contradictory Hypocrite. What a Country, What a Sad Sad People. Yeah, what a Sad people……
