You know those miscreants online. The few among us who lack a shred of decency and productivity and as soon as a post is made on FaceBook or any online forum, quickly paste a message that is something like this:
NIGERIA CUSTOMS SERVICE AUTHORIZED CAR AUCTIONS/SALES FOR 1ST HAND USED TOKUNBO VEHICLES FOR SALE AT A LITTLE COST. THESE ARE CARS BEEN SEIZED BY THE NIGERIA CUSTOM AUTHORITY FOR ILLEGAL IMPORTATION OF THE VEHICLES INTO THE COUNTRY AND NOW ON AUCTION SALES. CONTACT ADEOYE FELIX.
Yes, ‘Adeoye Felix,’ or ‘Customs Adedayo Smauel’ those pests. Or those ‘MTN Cheat’ guys. These society rejects, the ‘Wendel Simlins,’ the ‘Deri’s, the ‘redeemers,’ the debased humans who never tire and seek every opportunity to cheat and rip people off; these are the same fabric of ‘humans’ that head our government: 419, fraudsters, common touts and petty miscreants. The custom scam that irritates us online everyday is no different than the deadly one organized by our Interior Ministry under the government of Goodluck Jonathan and conducted by the Customs and Immigration department. The scam is the same. Allegedly a company called ‘Drexel Nigeria Ltd,’ owned by top ruling politicians was contracted to orchestrate this mega scam, defrauding our desperate, unemployed youth of N1000 a head to the total tune of at least $6.5 billion naira ($40 million) for only 500,000 selected candidates.
And to make matters worse, it was our government paid Immigration workers that were seen in the recruitment scam exercise. The company contracted simply scammed the people of the billions and used government workers, paid by the government to do the work. It is also deducible that the Interior Ministry robbed Nigeria and Nigerians from both sides. I bet you there was a huge government allocation from the nation’s coffers for this same exercise. Double robbers!
And this scandal we witnessed this Saturday, it is not the first, oh! We only heard of this one because of the recklessness, the excessive greed and the numbers that died this time. They have been doing them like this every time. There is one that happens in NYSC too, where every year they rip off corpers of the same dues for the same phony projects. There are many government organized and conspired painful scams like this that the exploited people, the youth and unemployed suffer.
Nigerians must stand up to rid the nation of these thieving trolls, these parasites. It is not enough to ask for the Interior Ministers head. When Stella stole, we asked for her head. For Diezani-NNPC’s robbery, we ask for their head. For ASUU and ASUP protracted strikes, we ask for Wike’s head. For other scams, we got Mike’s head. For the support of Boko Haram and other terror, we got Tukur’s head. The truth is, will we keep asking for everyone’s heads every day, day by day as we suffer and are defrauded and sacrificed left and right or is it not past time we ask for the President’s head and Occupy Everything till our nation is rescued from this government? Must we not avenge the deaths of these youth our students killed and all those losing their lives north and south in this nation ruled by proud fraudsters? If we do not rise, will they find our missing $20-127 billion? Will they refund our N1000 to the 6.5 million of us?
Occupy the national conference!
Occupy the federal ministries!
Occupy the state government houses!
Occupy the state secretariats!
Occupy the NNPC offices!
Occupy all government parastatals!
Occupy Aso rock!
Occupy all embassies abroad!
Occupy media houses!
Occupy the streets!
Rid the nation now of this cursed leadership!
Dear Nigerian youth, it is time we Occupy Everything!
Or else, na only coffin we go occupy oh!
