The systematic grounding of Nigeria

Sir: What I want to tell Muhideen Akorede is that until you privatise water supply, Nigerians will never see why they should pay for water.

The good thing about it is that once many companies go into water supply business, it will become cheaper than sinking and maintaining boreholes.

Government is not responsible for water supply in America. I should also say that the title of my book, African Ancestral Heritage in Christian Interpretations (on the, etc) is justified, because many of those who presented the African heritages, including African Traditional Religion, to the academic community were (and are still to a large extent) Christians, and while we must be eternally grateful to them, given the large extent they have promoted the heritages, sometimes (not always) they assume certain things and speak of them with impeccable authority, taking appearance for reality, such as saying that Babatunde and Iyabo indicate Yoruba belief in reincarnation.


Sometimes they were constrained to please their Christian teachers and supervisors alike.

Rev Fr. Prof Luke Nnamdi Mbefo, who supervised my PhD thesis, was highly commended for allowing me to do a critical research in a Roman Catholic environment.

The Ministry of Labour and Productivity is in shambles, even though there is a minister and staff assigned to the ministry with annual budget.

In some universities, many departments have been created and thousands of students admitted without commensurate facilities, including classrooms and teachers.

With the President, General Muhammadu Buhari (GMB) who doubles himself as the Petroleum Minister, increased fuel price from N87 to N145, and is recovering looted funds without accountability for anything to anybody, Nigeria is at its worst.

Who will rescue Nigeria if not Nigerians? Unfortunately, Nigerians are very few in the midst of the ocean of non-Nigerians who are Christians and Muslims, and their loyalties are to Christianity and Islam, not to Nigeria at all.

Christians and Muslims seek to dominate the world, with the ultimate beneficiaries as Christian and Islamic clerics.

The university system that is supposed to be the Ivory Tower of knowledge and objectivity has been hijacked by Christians and Muslims who compete for the positions based on religious bigotry.


In some universities, even matriculation and convocation ceremonies are tied to mosque and church worships.

It has become obvious that Christian and Islamic missionaries were not working for God but how to create earthly kingdoms for Christians and Muslims, with particular reference to the clerics, since members and followers alike are milked and exploited in churches and mosques.

Many sweet-mouthed persons have created their own churches or formed Muslim organizations to milk Nigerians, in addition to milking the nation to build grandiose churches and mosques.

Workers, including university teachers and students are systematically domesticated and caged, to the extent that some university teachers will never go on protest or strike but live like pigeons in the holes created for them by the university administrators.

In his 80s, the former President, General Olusegun Obasanjo (OBJ), looked at the situation of Nigeria and is advising Nigerians to vote for Atiku Abubakar, a seasoned politician who will create peace and reorder Nigeria for progress and stability.

But the agents of death and economic annihilation of Nigeria, and his cohorts are upset and desperate to perpetuate their dastardly grip on the nation.

GMB is now in tears fighting Boko Haram and mushrooming armed bandits and struggling to protect the Fulani herdsmen terrorists.

Nigeria is thus in the worst hands of a military Major General, killing, maiming and impoverishing Nigerians.
