"We told them that this is not due to government neglect but to some imbalances in the system and the inability of some oil companies to meet the Memoranda of Understanding they signed with the people."
~ Gov. Timipre Sylva of Bayelsa, in Nigeria, on how he secured the release of the local hostages of the militants in Southern-Ijaw Local Government Area.
This is how the PDP governors have incited Niger Delta militants against the multinational oil companies.
They misappropriate the revenue allocations for their states and lie to the militants that the multinational companies have failed in their obligations to the host communities.
The irony of corruption in Nigeria is the complicity of Nigerian churches and mosques.
The fact is Nigerian pagans are more honest and transparent than the so called Christians and Muslims.
Nigerians fear the Juju than they fear the Almighty God.
I have since passed a vote of No Confidence in Nigerian Christians and Muslims, because I have not seen any difference in their behaviour outside the church and mosque when compared to the pagans.
The only difference is they go to church and mosque while the pagans go to the shrine.
The dishonesty, hypocrisy and selfish opportunism among Nigerian Christians and Muslims are responsible for the perpetuation of corruption in Nigeria, from the hawkers of fake products on the street to the embezzlers of revenue allocations in the corridors of power.
From Lagos to Abuja to Calabar to Enugu to Bonny Island, I have been there and seen corruption in high places and low places.
The metamorphosis of corruption in Nigeria can be seen in the parade of their ignorance in the masquerade of arrogance. But as Jesus Christ said, "by their fruits you shall know them", their deeds indoors and outdoors show their true characters, regardless of their lip service and eye service in their churches and mosques.
My duty is to witness and give my eye witness accounts in my books like the Chronicles of the Holy Bible.
