As US donates used military hardwares to the Nigerian Army…

91

We are now celebrating donation of used armoured vehicles to us in this 21st century when Biafra was producing its own armoured vehicles 48 years ago and this Biafra happened to be subjugated within this beggary country.

Used military hardwares donated to the Nigerian Army by United States of America

After the news broke that the United States of America donated some used military hardwares to the Nigerian Army to aid them in their fight against Boko Haram, one of my long term antagonist hit my inbox with some hilarious comments and satires.

He was ecstatic to the point of euphoria, that, at last, Nigeria is on course again. He opined that had it not been that America respects Baba, they wouldn’t have given us all these state of the arts hardwares.

After reading his rhetorics, I answered him with one sentence:

A beggar has no choice ni?

These APC goons have ridiculed this country to a level that is unbelievably pathetic. A country like America which produces military hardwares was approached by the Nigerian government under Jonathan Administration to sell military equipment to us for the prosecution of the war on terror and the US refused owing mainly to the propaganda of human rights abuse leveled against it by those who now occupy the seat of power but same people are now celebrating a dash of second hand vehicles to us.

I guess it’s true what they said about a section of this country that see proceeds from begging as genuine earnings worthy of celebrations.

We are now celebrating donation of used armoured vehicles to us in this 21st century when Biafra was producing its own armoured vehicles 48 years ago and this Biafra happened to be subjugated within this beggary country.

Do you still wonder why they will not let Biafra go that easy? A free Biafran state equals another Japan in Africa and oyibos will not have any of that. They will rather have NEPA bill holders be in charge of a country so saturated with human and material resources, so they can continue to plunder and palliate us with used military vehicles.

I told my friend to grow up and unshackle his shackled brains.

We thank America for their gesture even if it means using us as a dumping ground for their junks, in case you don’t know, these vehicles are junks to the American military. They should please do us another solid by selling to us current state of the arts military hardwares for I’m sure we can afford them, after all the person in charge now is somebody they respect, according to my friend.

And to my friend, I can’t join you in your ecstasy for begging is not a proud occupation in my part of the country. We are a proud people and we earn our keep through our hard work and ingenuity not through beggary…..
