Moral Values, Culture and Republic of Nigeria R.I.P.
By Emmanuel Ogebe
Midway through the judgment delivery today, I departed Nigeria’s Supreme Court as it presided over what was in effect the valedictory session in memory of the late departed republic of Nigeria and its similarly deceased constitution and democracy.
The apex court did not fail to disappoint once again: redeeming its image as the lost hope of the common man and the last hoax of the politician.
I congratulate Bola Ahmed Adekunle Tinubu (aka Sangodele Amoda) on his successful conquest of the Nigerian nation, it’s intelligence agencies, intellectuals, academics and jurists after a 24 year battle.
Truly, parents in Nigeria can now tell their children, “if you don’t attend school, you do drugs and you forge certificates, you can be a leader of Nigeria in the future.”
It is not only the constitution that died today. Our moral values and culture as a society died with it. The very soul of the nation has been condemned to death row in today’s mass casualty fatality.
My condolences go to Nigeria’s youth who are now prisoners of the Penal Colony of Nigeria where it is a punishable offense to do good and a profitable enterprise to do wrong.
Yesterday on an Arise TV interview I stated that the Court of Appeal had turned the people of Abuja into a slave colony. I apologize for that error. Today the Supreme Court has confirmed that all Nigerians are part of the Penal Colony of Ligeria.
