This book “WAR WITHOUT BLOODSHED” is designed as an arena for discussing the fundamental predicament of the Nigerian society, with a view to finding solutions to factors militating against the peaceful existence of Nigeria as a political entity.
Those who perpetuate injustice, inequity, corruption, misplacement and misappropriation and looting of public treasury, bad governance, ethnicism and religionism but preach peace must understand that there can never be peace without justice.
How do we address the issue of injustice to the poor, women and children? How do we as a nation eliminate sit-tight-opportunism in the leadership, both at the local, state and national levels?
After fifty three years of age, Nigeria is still frivolous and need to grow up to maturity. How will the country grow, when as the sixth largest oil producing country in the world, it is ranked as one of the poorest and most corrupt countries in the world.
Can the country actually grow and develop in the face of tyranny and in a situation where evil is condoned as part of the system and a call by decent people for change and punishment of offenders is regarded by the powers that be as a call for anarchy.
When somebody says that Nigerians are the happiest people on earth, what he is saying is that they are so timid when it comes to resisting harsh and anti-people policies. Nigerians are so docile to the extent that the numerous Human right Associations, Students Unions, Market men and women Associations, Labour Organisations, the Bar Association and others cannot unite to resist anti-people policies of government and desire and give themselves a new constitution that will make possible, the emergence of new institutions and leaders and alternative political platforms. Professor Bolaji Akinyemi got it right when he said that when a Nigerian is pushed to the wall, instead of resisting, he quickly sinks into it. This is the attitude of Nigerians which their rulers know very well and cash on to do anything they like and get away with it. Nigerians have lived so long with leaders or rulers who have no regard for social justice.
In many countries, a mere hike in the price of bread could cause spontaneous massive reaction that can threaten the business of governance. Nigerians must wake up and give themselves the constitution and leaders they want. Nigeria is in need of good leaders that will preside over a united nation, which will in turn breed thrust, responsibility, accountability and prosperity. Presiding over disunited nation will continue to breed corruption, irresponsibility, unaccountability, tribalism, nepotism, fear, lawlessness, violence, insecurity, hunger, poverty and favouritism.
Decent people abound in this country and they have over slept, and must wake up to the reality of the time.
If you are not yet ready for change, you are in one way or another a beneficiary to the wicked system in Nigeria and you must retrace your steps. You are one of the oppressors mentioned in this book. If you are ready for change, go on and read and apply some of the recommendations mentioned in this book for a peaceful change that will guarantee justice to all.
