Article: Nigeria: Restructure Or Rupture


By Austin Emaduku

Nigeria is standing on the edge of a dangerous cliff. It is just a matter of time before it tips over. Rather than the current emotional and politically driven call for a “Revolution”, we all really need to calmly analyse and situate the cause(s) of our problems. In any case, a revolution without a vanguard is a recipe for anarchy. Besides, we are too fatally fractured as a people to achieve a broad-based revolution acceptable to all. The best we can achieve in such a situation will be strife, anarchy and uncontrolled fragmentation. With the perennial mutual mistrust and prevalent hatred spread on social media, the resultant crises will take forever to settle. Libya will be a child's play.

Article: Revisiting “Zoning And Rotation”

Madunagu

By Edwin Madunagu

At the end of the Nigerian Civil War (July 1967 – January 1970), and in preparation for a possible return to civilian rule, the ruling class established—or rather, creatively adapted—the dual principle of “zoning” and “rotation” of key political party offices and government positions among geopolitical segments of their class.

Some leading ideologues of the newly re-united class claimed that the principle emerged from one of the lessons of that bitter conflict: the need to protect and promote “national unity” at all time. The theory was that with this principle and complementary ones, the Nigerian ruling class, following the United Nations at the end of the Second World War, could vow, “Never Again!”. These ideologues were young, brilliant and idealistic. But since their horizon did not go beyond capitalism and the capitalist ruling class, their brilliant idea could not even survive the first substantive test.

Communiqué: Communiqué Issued By The Patriotic Movement In Nigeria


Patriotic Call!!!
Dear countrymen and women!! Fellow compatriots!!! We all are aware of the horrible situation in our country, Nigeria. The country has completely broken down under the watch of this government. On its part, the government in the land seems not to care about the hopeless situation.

The first principle in any society is the preservation of lives and properties of the citizens, but we know today that this is an illusion in our country. Our people are being massacred in their hundreds daily and they have nobody to protect them since the government in the land seems to be part of the problem, contributing to the problem.

In the social media, the citizens express their fears, their frustrations, their anger and their helplessness amidst the on-ongoing useless massacre. Different groups have put forward their communiqué to protest this cankerworm, but they fell on deaf ears since those in government may not be far from being the sponsors of these useless killings based on the one-sided security personnel and apparatus in the country right now. The government that should have the protection of lives and properties as its priority turns out to be a significant threat to the lives and properties of the citizens. The lives of the citizens are no longer secure in any part of this country. For how long shall we be in this mess?

News Release: "Proscription" Of Shiites & IPOB: Nigerian Govt Is Wantonly Injecting Nigerians With Toxins Of Genocide

A Shiite Protest

The Nigerian Government headed by Retired Major Gen Muhammadu Buhari and Prof Yemi Osinbajo as his Vice is dangerously licensing Nigerians to take up arms and go into intractable terror-insurgency capable of turning the country into Somalia or situation worse than same. The Government, as a matter of fact, is dangerously injecting Nigerians with toxins of genocide and destruction.

Using the laws of karma, the present Government of Nigeria appears to be operating as if it is a cursed regime being haunted by its past misdeeds particularly the framing up and slaying of thousands of unarmed and defenseless citizens as it is generationally damning to kill an innocent soul, not to talk of killing thousands with impunity. The latest court-declared proscription and tagging of Shiite Muslims in Nigeria as “terrorist group” is hereby condemned in strongest and unreserved terms.
