Jimmy Carter is a shadow Republican, a placeholder between Gerald Ford and Ronald Reagan. He continued the US policy that introduced corruption into the Nigerian political system and the destruction of moral, ethics and cultural values of Nigerians.
Nigerians have struggled for over 47 years to recover from the effects of a policy enacted by the Richard Nixon / Henry Kissinger administration and financed by the US oil industry, Mobil, Texaco, Union76, and Chevron.
They burned us with our own petrol.
Gen. Murtala Muhammed was assassinated under the administration of President Gerald Ford, for refusing to sign over Nigeria’s oil to American banking and oil interests and for refusing to devalue the naira to boost the dollar and profits of the US banking and oil industries. This policy was rubberstamped by the IMF and enforced by the US military.
When the Chair of the Supreme Military Council Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, made similar moves of protecting Nigerian assets and values and to curb the excesses of the Shehu Shagari administration that plunged Nigeria into the abyss, the US and Ronald Reagan having no interest in seeing Buhari tackle this problem green lighted the coup that kept Gen. Buhari in the cooler for several years.
This policy was used by all past US Presidents from Nixon to the current Trump, from the assassinations of Gen. Murtala Muhammed to Gen. Sani Abacha, Ken Saro-Wiwa, MKO Abiola and many more.
Since their first landing on the continent Americans have used the government to pillage and obtain whatever they want by force, having never paid a fair price for anything.
Corporate America wants uranium today so they invaded Niger with US Special Forces and pick a fight with North Korea as justification. The very idea of 93year old Jimmy Carter going to North Korea to match wits with a 33year old Kim is comical at best.
Why don’t they surprise Kim by invoking the ghost of Ronald Reagan, scare him with some old people technology. This is what happens when you have a bunch of senile old men in power just because they are white.
You see, we live in a superhighway of knowledge where the young are building the smart machines of the future. Kim Jong-un is young and smart and can build smarter machines with lesser resources.
At 33 years old Kim Jong-un is the leader of North Korea and supervising the building of nuclear weapons to protect his country from American aggression. What was Jimmy Carter doing at 33?
Americans believe just because Trump knows how to tweet every 5 minutes and claims to be a billionaire he must be a genius. Then there is 93 year old Jimmy Carter, who doesn’t even know what twitter is, but he is ready to match wits with 33year old Kim Jong-un.
Everyone knows Americans have never kept their word on any negotiated agreement go ahead ask the indigenous people. – @OgbeniAyotunde
