Cancel the Super Tucano deal now

On August 3, 2017, the United States Department of State con firmed the approval of the sale of 12 pieces of A-29 Super Tucano attack aircraft to Nigeria worth $593m.8.

This was sequel to a phone call between former US President, Donald Trump and his Nigerian counterpart, Muhammadu Buhari.

We were supposed to pay for the warplanes immediately, while the delivery would be two (or was it three) years later.

I am not aware that the delivery has taken place. There is no way that such a massive delivery would transpire without a massive media hoopla.

What it also means is that the delivery could be imminent, more so as Nigeria is now delicately poised at the brink of implosion from multiple security threats.

When this deal was signed, well meaning Nigerians (including myself) were happy and angry at the same time.

We were happy that such a high calibre fleet of military machines was coming – at last! – from America to us.

The government of former President Barack Obama, the chief international sponsor of Buhari’s ascent to power, had refused to sell arms to the President Good luck Jonathan regime.

They even exposed an attempt to buy from the black-market allegedly using Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor’s private jet to smuggle the forex.

But we were angry because it was going to take a whole two to three years to deliver! We were livid with patriotic anger at having to spend such a huge amount under a recession on equipment that had to wait for so long, while the defeated Islamic terror networks of the Middle East were nesting down in our North East frontier as Boko Haram allies.

Since that time, we have watched with dismay Boko Haram morphing into a monster of Brobdingnagian proportions.

Government had unilaterally taken $1 billion from our Excess Crude Account in August 2018 to fight security. Some weapons were bought, but before we knew it, we started seeing them (especially armoured vehicles) in the possession of Boko Haram.

Boko Haram has landed in Niger State and is rapidly advancing towards Abuja. They are now also in Borno, Adamawa, Yobe and Bauchi.

The cattle rustling and kidnapping in the North West have now become another front of terror which we are unable to contain.

So, what did government do with our $1billion? The probable answer is that (as long suspected), there are jihadist sympathisers and enhancers within Nigeria’s current ruling establishment.

What other answers could there be when, in addition to the aforementioned massive growth of the Boko Haram and bandit terrorism, the armed militias fighting to seize the lands and farms of indigenous Nigerians have set up camps in all 17 states of Southern Nigeria.

Those defending their ancestral patrimonies from them are declared “terrorists”, proscribed and assaulted with Federal Government weapons that should have been turned on these armed invaders. Imo and Akwa Ibom states have been bombed to kill people defending their ancestral heritage to make way for the invaders to subjugate the indigenous people.

That first point needs repeating!

Quote
there are jihadist sympathisers and enhancers within Nigeria’s current ruling establishment.

So, any country supplying Nigeria with military equipment today should know that it is indirectly supplying weapons to jihadists like Boko Haram and ISIS in West Africa (ISWAP).
Let nobody claim ignorance of this truth.

ANY COUNTRY SUPPLYING NIGERIA WITH ANY WEAPONS THESE DAYS WOULD BE PARTLY RESPONSIBLE FOR THE DEATHS OF INDIGENOUS PEOPLES OF NIGERIA WHOSE LANDS ARE BEING FORCEFULLY OCCUPIED BY FULANI TERRORISTS.

This bold statement is necessary due to high level of ignorance in parts of the world.

A lot of countries still think that we have a country in Nigeria, but we don't. What we have now is a terror government sponsoring terrorists.
The same government places terrorist tag on (and proscribes) indigenous people who are defending their ancestral lands.

Therefore, when pictures of dead women and children start appearing in social (and formal) media, let nobody claim not to know that such crimes are going on in Nigeria.

These weapons should NEVER be delivered to Nigeria, because Nigeria is not being invaded by any foreign country. Nigeria is at peace with all of her neighbors.

However, Nigeria is at war with her own peoples. There are people inside the Nigerian government who want to ethnically cleanse parts of Nigeria, and use those lands to resettle foreign Fulani, to make the Fulani the majority ethnic group.
THAT IS THE TRUTH!

In 1967 civil war, many countries made the mistake of supplying Nigeria with weapons with which Nigeria committed genocide against the Biafran people.
The world must not repeat that mistake.
