THE HEIGHT OF OPPRESSION OF ORDINARY CITIZENS.
BY DR. JEROME AGI Ph.D
I listened carefully to our President s long awaited CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC address and at the end of the day I can only conclude that WE HAVE BEEN SCAMMED and DEFRAUDED big time.
I was speechless as to the EMPTINESS OF THE SPEECH, the INSENSITIVITY OF OUR PRESIDENT TO THE PLIGHT OF NIGERIANS and the TEMERITY OF INSULT ON NIGERIANS IN CONCLUDING HIS INJURY INFLICTING SPEECH.
HONESTLY, it is unfortunate that we have burdened ourselves with such a President and the good news is that both we ORDINARY Nigerians and those who stand to defend the President all the time are in this mess together.
In the ALMIGHTY SPEECH of our PRESIDENT, he deliberately refused to comment nor apologise on the POWER CEASURES ACROSS THE COUNTRY in the face of Lockdown.
IS THAT A CONCERNED and SENSITIVE LEADER?
He failed to address the issue of Salaries yet to be paid. That must be a callous Leader.
He had forgotten that Schools have been shut down since, and he was insisting on School Feeding Programme to continue, even when some State Governors have been complaining on the non Transparency and Accountability of the programme.
That is a PROTECTOR of LOOTING, STEALING , FRAUD and CORRUPTION.
He said other Nigerians should assist all vulnerable persons around them , yet he does not know that all Nigerians including his BLIND supporters have been VULNERABLE since 2015 when he came to power.
HE SAID THERE IS NO CURE NOR VACCINE. What was used to TREAT the Italian man that was the first CORONAVIRUS case in Nigeria?
The various HEALED CORONAVIRUS affected persons in Lagos, what was used to heal them?
The large number of Chinese people recovering from the virus, what medicine was used to cure them?
All of our big ogas who contacted the virus and have gone into self isolation, what medicine is being administered to them presently,?
Because I know that in a few weeks from now, they will inform us that they have recovered and discharged .
So who is lying to who and who is trying to deceive who?
ORDINARY NIGERIANS LIKE ME SHINE YOUR EYES OOH.
Between February, 27th when the Italian Man was declared to be affected by the virus to March , 29th we had recorded 97 cases and as at TODAY 30th we have 111 affected persons with 5 persons discharged TODAY at Lagos.
MY QUESTION is that do the authorities remove the numbers of cured and discharged persons from the pilling up numbers or the just keep adding without subtracting the recovered and dead ones?
I believe it is a simple arithmetic problem to solve .
He told us that the DG of NCNC was among the 10 Health leaders selected by WHO to go to China and under study their response style. Very funny .
Since the return of the DG is it the total lockdown style that he understudied? What about their CURATIVE approach? Did he get it?
Yet our President said that they have put into consideration measures that are tailored around our realities?
Does this sudden TOTAL lockdown without palliative measures and provisions to cushion the damage this lockdown will cause millions of NIGERIANS which might be more harmful than the CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC itself.
In Nigeria many of us live on daily income making businesses and the President suddenly shuts us out without human consideration .
At least 2 to 3 days allowance for NIGERIANS to prepare would have not been out of place.
If other Nations took stricter measures as he claimed than the one he has introduced, then my question again is how was the PANDEMIC curtailed there like China itself, Italy, France, Germany, Iran etc.? Did it not escalate?
Our President said he has provided the sum of 15 Billion naira only to help fight the CONVID- 19. YET the CONTRIBUTIONS from some Individuals and Corporate Organisations surpassed this amount and my fear is that it will still end up in the pockets of our gluttonous and dangerously greedy leaders. God have mercy.
It would have been better to borrow a leaf from President Jonathan s approach to EBOLA disease which was deadlier than this CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC and yet it was terminated in Lagos with recorded cases of about 97 affected persons at the time of exit.
What is 3 Months Moratorium loan extended to persons registered under the Tradermoni, Market Moni, Farmers moni schemes,: as well as, those who collected loans from BOA, BOI and NEXIM.
His speech was made out of forceful demand by Nigerians, and it was very shameful that it was not a live speech.
What a one chance presidency nigerians will live with for the next almost 4 years?
Our President insulted us to our face that, since we are disturbing him to come out and talk like Trump, Boris Johnson, Emmanuel Macron etc. It was better to quarantine us immediately for 2 weeks so that we don’t have to disturb him. VERY SAD.
We must turn to God alone and plead with him to help us the ORDINARY Citizens of Nigeria to come out safe from this CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC threat and out of this nightmare of bad leadership in Nigeria.
