There should be no problem calling a spade a spade. These Boko Haram murderers are muslims; they are animals; and they are criminals.

You don't dialogue with people like this who don't have any qualms killing innocent people in the name of whatever is their beef. Seriously, if I were to be the President, I will not negotiate any crap with bastards like these; I will seek them out, smoke them out and decimate them, period. I have no patience with criminals.

The same goes to treasury looters. For how long should we suffer to solve our problems? Leaders are supposed to be problem solvers, and not causing them. But no! our own so-called leaders go into office to not solve problems but add more to them. According to a Yoruba proverb, "if orisa (god) cannot improve my life, then orisa should, at least, not make it worse for me. Our own leaders are only making them worse.

When are we going to change the trend and stop this suffering and bleeding? In oyinbo land or developed worlds, the government begs people and offer incentives to people to join the police force or even join any of the armed forces because these are dangerous jobs in the real sense of it. In our own country you bribe to join the police force or any of the armed forces because they are jobs of "enjoyment". Why are we so unprogressive? All we know how to do is oppress, cheat, and steal, and rub people's noses into it.

Where is rule of law? Why do so many crimes go unpunished? Where is our humanity in all of this? How can we forge ahead and form a united front to stop the criminal acts of our leaders and criminals when some people are trying to break up the country? Why do some people introduce negative efforts that make the coalition weaker when we desperately need unity to solve problems? We are all supposed to be pulling in one direction for synergistic effect, instead of some people pulling and others pushing. We are never going to make it this way.

Are we doomed forever? Are we going to continue like this until each state becomes a country? Even so, I can bet you each resulting country will still continue to fight until each tribe or dialect within a country becomes another country. And where will it end?

Look at it this way - there are no two people (just two) in this world that will always agree all the time. Even identical twins don't. A wife and a husband, no matter the perfectness of their love for each other, will disagree sometimes. The teeth may get mad at the tongue sometimes and bite it, but they must "resolve" their differences because they must live together in the mouth.

So is the human world. We've got to live together and we must do it in the most humanly possible way. I am not going anywhere for you, my friend! You did not create the world, and it’s not yours. God created it for me and you to share.

Let me end this by quoting the words in a very old song, one of my favorites, titled “The Message”, by Grandmaster Flash and The Furious Five. It goes, “Don’t push me, cause I’m close to the edge; I’m trying not to lose my head!” Let’s be reasonable with each other, and let’s share.

If You let these wicket elements go free in the name of Amnesty, the blood of innocent Nigerians will hunt you and your families. And please, stop associating them with any religion. They are pure animals
