SHE EATS HER CHILDREN


I am talking about Nigeria, the colonial contraption that is our purported Motherland. She has an appetite that is unhealthy, unwholesome, and ungodly. Nigeria feeds on her children. She is no tree of liberty to be watered every now and again by the blood of tyrants. Indeed, despots of varying ideological and sartorial persuasions have violated her whether it is by unbuckling and pulling down the khakis, or by furling the babarigas.
Our mother is abused and weary, a victim of Stockholm syndrome who returns to molest her offspring.

And now in the delta, she eats yet again, her children and her elderly, two-by-two but in a way that even Noah would not approve. The Nigerian State is at war with the Nigerian Citizen. The Nigerian citizen is doomed, because his compatriots believe that his murder is justified, and that his mother is well within her rights to commit infanticide.

Nigeria, my heart-wrenching country is adopting the tactics of Al-Qaeda in Iraq i.e.: kill the innocents, and the enemy will be pressured to retreat. The murder of the very old and the too young is the subject of the most callous statements on the floor of our parliament. A supposed joke was even made of the entire scenario in the House of Representatives. I can tell you now with all the conviction I can muster that nobody represents me in that house.

Our President is sick, but I do not speak of his body. I’m talking about his mind. He continues in office, the worthy heir to the murderous legacy of his predecessors. He may have declared assets worth a couple of million dollars, but the man is morally in the red. People -poor people- are being killed every day in this onslaught. So if you are sitting at your desk in whatever locale, and you think that this is okay, or necessary, or justified, I can assure you my friend, that you are complicit.

The details upset me too much. I do not want to write, but at the same time, I cannot be quiet. As a friend said to me, to not say anything simply because I do not want to write would be self-indulgent, and I dare add, wrong.

Nigeria eats her children to applause and without remorse.

I’m angry and sad and deeply ashamed.

For the love of me was talking abt the same subject and this topic has been around for a span.
And like i will always say, the govt. has turned its back on its people, letting its patriotic citizens rot to satisfy their unrighteous desires.
We should look beyond our selfish ways and think of the prosperity of our nation.

LOL @ ' ... colonial contraption that is our purported motherland ..' when Awolowo said it fifty years ago, they said he was tribalistic and unpatriotic.

Did the Nigerian state declare war on Nigerian citizens or was it the other way round?

Methinks some children actually declared a war on their mother because they were not getting enough from the pot of soup they cooked.

But then a mother will not go ahead and feed on its offspring, it may just bare its fangs.

Serious matter Porter, but lets hope things will be resolved soon.
