Refineries need Biafra to work

10 October 2013, 09:36 Onyeji Dominic Uzoechi

Lack of sound education is one bad thing that is eating deep into Nigeria. I had said this severally in my writings. The country is full of mediocrities. Most of the citizens do not know their onions. You can hardly find a Nigerian who is mentally sound in his or her field of learning.

If you doubt, go to Nigerian universities and see. How many of the students are seriously given to studies? They are deceiving themselves in higher institutions. Majority of them are just there in pretense and make believe; they are wasting and whiling away their time for nothing.

You can equally go to employers and check records in personnel departments. Your finding will surely convince you that Nigerian graduates and applicants are mediocrities. If they are not, why are they not creative like the white who we see everywhere in the country creating jobs and lucrative opportunities?

I am asking this because I dislike the rate at which white men are exploiting Africa. They are using us like slaves. Millions of Nigerians are working in their factories and firms earning peanuts. Why? The miserable wages they pay to factory workers cannot even afford feeding, three square meals a day. So, how do you expect the workers to survive?

I had wanted to suggest repatriation and confiscation. But on a second thought I see that things cannot work out for good in that way. Come to think of it! If we repatriate white men and seize their companies legally, who will manage them? I mean how many Nigerians are professionally fit to handle or man the Whitman companies in Nigeria? Look at the country’s parastatals. How many of them are still sound? Majority of companies that Nigeria own and manage as a country are dead due to managerial incompetence. If Nigerians are not mediocrities, why are their companies folding? Why? How many public companies in Nigeria are functioning soundly? Let us count!

Water Board died naturally long, long time ago. That is number one. Railway Corporation is no longer working in Nigeria – dead parastatal. That is number two. Ministry of Education has been sleeping for years in the country, and another name for sleep is dead. Look it up or ask the wise. If you sleep for too long without waking, it means that you are dead. That is number three. Ministry of Works & Housing is also sleeping. That is why all roads in Nigeria are too bad. Where do you see motor able roads in the country? That is number four. What about Power Holding Company of Nigeria (PHCN)? That one is equal to death. Incessant power failure in the country shows that PHCN is heavily sick. The company is at the point of death. So, which one is left? Ask Nigerians! They know that all their companies are down-rightly down. Any company that is sound in Nigeria belongs to White man. If you doubt, go round and see. Check them out!

The worst thing is that refineries have been laying waste in Nigeria for many years. Crude oil and other mineral resources are everywhere and White men are managing them for us. Why? All the oil companies in the country belong to the white. They drill our oil and carry them to their country for refining while our refineries are wasting away in death, and one idiot told me on facebook that I was wrong for calling Nigerians mediocrities. If Nigerians are not ignoramus and mediocrities, what are they?

What I am saying here is that Nigeria is wasting away in downhill. Quote me anywhere! The citizens are good for nothing. If you call them ghosts, you are not wrong because the country is dead in fantasy world. That is why things are not working as supposed. I am a holy Sage. I see things like gods. The carcass of Nigeria is wasting in realm of jungle .That is what I see. How many professionals are in the country? Let them come out and show us their skills. They should go and make the refineries work. Four refineries are dead in the country and the citizens are not ashamed of their downright incompetence.

Truth is that the refineries do not belong to Nigeria. They are owned by Biafra. Nigerians cannot manage them just like they cannot man Whitman companies in Nigeria. The refineries cannot work until Biafra, the rightful owner, stands as a sovereign nation. There shall be no functional refinery if Biafra is not liberated. Mark my words and quote anywhere.
