Quickly remove nails in Nigeria’s coffin – or we die!

Quickly remove nails in Nigeria’s coffin- or we die!

The nails in the coffin of Nigeria have been placed over the years and may differ from analysis to analysis. Nails like the long one hammered into the beating economic heart of Nigeria causing a haemorrhage of seeming uncontrollable proportions by those who fix the black market naira value every night. Who and where are these mysterious economy destroyers, evil puppet masters of the Nigerian economy meeting tonight at 10,11 or 12 o’clock laughing at their profits and emboldened, perhaps in their perpetual greed, to make a dollar N1000, terminating a coffin-bound Nigeria in a final financial stranglehold?

 

They are unpatriotic economic saboteurs and mega-financial terrorists, nails, stealing the hard-earned money of Nigerians refused ‘white market dollars’ by a central bank whose ‘banker’ governor appears unable to take on board available ideas for naira-rescue proposed by many economists. He should flush out anyone ‘round-tripping dollars’ even if they are close to him. Should he not resign or be abruptly retired or fired? It is believed that bankers, in and out of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), are more interested in today’s banks profit/share margins while economists worry over longer term recovery goals. There appears to be a 50+-year currency cabal with a motto ‘Reap where you do not sow’ controlling the black market’s ‘toilet-paper naira’ traumatised naira. Others work hard earning the naira while the cabal devalues their labour/earnings.

 

Who gives out CBN dollars controlled by the cabal and the rest of the black market but pretends to blame politicians for doing the exact same thing-both denying genuine dollar requests for citizens and companies? Is there a dollar haemorrhage to the favoured few in the CBN vault? There is financial terrorism against the naira-a nail!

Our immediate future seems gloomy because our immediate past has been disastrous and even deadly, nails in Nigeria’s coffin, for the over 10,000 acknowledged murdered since January, 10,000+ graves with collateral mental and physical injury to millions of those nearby and family. Despair weakens Nigeria’s 160 million, not 200m, exhausted by almost daily ‘Presidential Condolences’, running gauntlets of death, injury, robbery and kidnapping in local criminal and international terror attacks, the precipitous fall in our once proud naira, the skyrocketing living cost, the inability to farm and harvest without extortion and death threats and farmer deaths and non-payment of pensions and wages-more nails.

 

All these, with political rubbishing of the people’s existence politically, another nail, result in the mental and physical pauperisation of people with lives devalued paradoxically confirmed by a devilish kidnap N100million demanded by some kidnappers, not for a group but for each person.

 

Question: Did this kidnap figure, N100,000,000, a nail, predate or was it plagiarised from a criminal politics as it is the same inexplicably huge figure demanded by the APC for a Presidential Nomination Form, a nail, resulting in N3-4billion being acquired through nomination form selling at National Assembly, a huge economic burden nail, level. Kidnappers, nails, are demoralising and rendering many thousands of paupers from just one kidnapping. To pay ransom of N100,000,000 one needs 100 friends each having to give N1m each in a country with minimum wage =N30,000. About 3,333 minimum wage earners will be equivalent to N100m. imagine the disruption too business, family and others of raising this money through frantic sale of property etc. Wickedness of the highest order.

How can we measure all the nails in Nigeria’s coffin on our fall into near anarchy? Yes, we can measure the naira value and count loss in naira value. We can also add the loss of life, livelihood and quality of life due to attacks and killings and billions stolen, nails, by just one person, a trusted accountant general, a nail. And add a guesstimate of all the other mega-thieves in power, also nails, who escaped the EFCC net through legal gymnastics, technicalities, court leniency and medico-dramatic skills rehearsed in acting classes. When accused of stealing, the political class, also nails, summons a lawyer and an acting coach?

Note that if the accountant general, an accused nail, can be accused of stealing N109b, there are many others also stealing many billions each also, but unreported. This is a breach of trust at the national and state level in a crazy dimension beyond normal thought.

 

Let us measure ‘Trust’ at the individual level. Growing up we prided ourselves on being friendly, which includes trusting. Sadly, being friendly and trusting can get you killed or kidnapped today or have your children stolen. Yesterday’s trust has been replaced by distrust which is spreading like wildfire between and throughout families, friends, businesses, communities, religious and ethnic groups. What do parents and teachers teach our children about trust?

A simple example of our collapsed ‘Trust Level’: Most Nigerians no longer give pick up lift-seekers or stranded strangers along the highway or accident or injured citizens on the road or police officers and drop them at the other end of the expressway or other destinations like the motor-park or the hospital. This is an exercise of national pride repeated many times over the last 50 years. It shames me not to be confident enough of ‘security and safety measures’ to help those in need. Even church, mosque, work and home are no longer ‘Trust venues’. The death of trust is another nail.-[ to be cont’d….]
