A House Assembled by Simple Minded Fools

In Nigeria we have two major parties, the ruling PDP party and the main opposition party APC. The PDP has an umbrella as their logo and the APC a broom. The umbrella symbolizes protection from prosecution for their corrupt members. The APC on the other hand are trying to sweep 21st century corruption in Nigeria with 11th century brooms.

In Nigeria you will never catch any self-respecting politician campaign for donations from the general public to fund their campaign, because in reality they have no responsibility to their constituents. I don’t believe a voter has ever contributed a single naira to any party or candidate in the history of politics in Nigeria. Parties and candidates are bought and sold by Godfathers and Corporations not unlike in America.

Then there is the media and journalistic integrity or lack there of, in the last general elections I witnessed major media houses and journalists alike getting paid to cover actual news events. When it comes down to it the politicians and their Godfathers own the journalists and news organizations. Any news organization in Nigeria without ties to politicians or their cronies please stand up.

It is evident that politicians have no respect for Nigerian news organizations and their journalists, used to be President Goodluck Jonathan was close friends with Nduka Obaigbena the owner of Thisday Newspaper until Boko Haram bomb 2 of his offices, then Mr. President ran to the safety of confidence men disguised as men of God.

The PDP was kick started and largely financed by Atiku Abubakar and for his efforts he was rewarded with the Vice Presidency of Nigeria for 8years. Through party infighting he left PDP to join forces with APC a party financed by another Godfather in Bola Ahmed Tinubu, who impatiently waits his reward.

In theory a politician should be the activist for the people they represent. In Nigeria and the Diaspora we have a culture of copycats, monkey see monkey do pirates, follow followers and a political structure top heavy in that ideology. There is a new wave of instant mix politicians in Nigeria today and like Ramen or Indomie noodle soups they have no nutritional value.

I know a few of the candidates running for House of Assemble seats in the next general elections, a couple I know from childhood and a couple from my college years in America. I can tell you that back then they showed absolutely no sense of care for anyone but themselves talk less of the people they now claim to want to represent.

Back then all these cats were interested in was making more money than their friends shopping at the Beverly Center for the latest Versace, Gucci or Hugo Boss threads while flashing their BMW, Benz and Hummers. I can debate that these guys are puppets on a string lured into politics strictly for the money, power and title.

In Nigeria when in a jam God calls on you to do one of two things become a politician or pastor, on both jobs you get to stand on a bullshit pulpit and bullshit the people. Nigeria is a country full of hardworking people and no strangers to multitasking so every pastor is a politician and every politician is a pastor.

If you drive in Nigeria you are accustomed to the constant stopping and searching and checking your particulars by the police, road safety and army, in Nigeria you can be charged and fined by road safety cops for not carrying a fire extinguisher in your car. These stops cost the average citizen in time and money but in large part deter the free movement of criminals. All I am saying is that we should check their particulars.  Ogbeni Ayotunde

  1. Well done my brother, precise to the point and informative, but why stop with just the “politicians” having recently – thanks to Folakemi – been introduced to “Mama Peace” Jonathan, why not remind folk about the treacherous and deceitful wives/women associated with the ‘bought and paid for’ so-called political and religious leaders, colluding and conniving has no limits in Nigeria and in America, but eventually the people will stand united and declare enough. My only concern when it happens is the attitude of the army (not it’s leaders, who we all know are looking out for themselves: look at Burkina Faso) but the ‘foot-soldier’ the brother with the gun and the full belly, “where he be at”

    1. Thank you my brother, oh yes Dame Patience a saint amongst thieves able to navigate her way from the Governor’s Mansion in Bayelsa to Aso Rock without once being a co conspirator in any embezzlement or money laundry deals. How would the world remember her if she does not have more billions than Mariam Abacha or Turai Yar’Adua.

      Then you have the politician wives who become basically cash couriers of stolen funds, they live as lavishly as their husbands. Abuja is no different from Washington DC with the money, power, sex and drugs. Politicians are known to keep their girlfriends at the Nicon Hotel in Wuse at and average of $5000 a night sometimes for years running.

      The wives have no intentions of playing second fiddle to their husbands so they also keep girlfriends and sometimes boyfriends in lavish apartments and hotels, There is enough blow in Abuja and Lagos to confuse the young girls of their sexual orientation they become lesbians just to suck on a wet one

      1. Well spoken young man

  2. Sad but interesting and not too surprising.

    1. You know it is quit surreal

  3. “…trying to sweep 21st century corruption in Nigeria with 11th century brooms.” That is an epic line, perfectly put! I’m not sure I quite agree that all pastors are politicians though. There are good ones out there. Yes indeed, we need to check out their particulars. Well said!

  4. Thank you kindly I appreciate you. Well it depends on your definition of “good”, by nature humans are not saintly, pastors and those who professionally pedal religion in Nigeria are strictly doing it for the money, and the implied power to sexually abuse girls, boys and their congregations wives. Heck we were enslaved under the pretext of religion. Remember all sins are committed in the name of God and the biggest 419 in Nigeria today is pastors convincing the masses to give up their riches because they hold the key to the “kingdom of heaven”.
