Nigeria – burning its oil wealth (Picture: Zero Hedge )

Nigeria was recently rated the poorest country in the world based on the numers living in extreme poverty, moving ahead of India, in spite of the african nation’s oil revenues which amount to several hundred billion dollars over the last decade, a watchdog group has revealed.

The Nigerian Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative, as quoted by local media, said Nigeria had earned some US$484 billion from oil in the last 10 years, but the state of its population and infrastructure has only deteriorated. According to the organization, the oil earnings were sufficient to meet the need for an annual US$15-billion investment in infrastructure for the next 33 years, but the funds were not used to do that.

Meanwhile, in its latest report on poverty, the Brookings Institution estimated that the number of people living in extreme poverty in Nigeria had grown to 87 million people, versus 73 million in India.

According to Brookings, poverty in India is falling while in Nigeria, it’s growing at a rate of six people per minute. What’s more, India’s total population is above 1 billion while Nigeria’s is 198 million, meaning those living in extreme poverty are a much higher portion of the population in the oil-rich state.

Lower GDP is one of the factors accounting for the growing poverty despite substantial oil revenues. Nigeria was hard hit by the 2014 oil price collapse and its economic growth slowed from 6.3 percent in that year to 1.9 percent for the first quarter of 2018, Vanguard reports. What’s more, the daily notes, what money has been borrowed to spend on infrastructure in a bid to restart the economy after the price collapse has been very far from sufficient to achieve this goal.

Nigeria is also plagued by very high crime rates that are certainly not helping matters, and neither is the displacement of people from the countryside to the cities. And of course, like anywhere in Africa, corruption in government and public services is a cancer which prevents progress.

Real News Ignored As Both Sides Of Political Spectrum Push Their agendas
A case in point is the real but largely unreported war which is taking place throughout the African continent. It involves the United States, resurgent Russia, and a rising China, ready to take advantage of the US failure to dominate Afghanistan. The outcome of the war, which is economic with only occasional military skirmishes involving proxies, is likely to define the future of the continent and the global power balance.

Bring Back Our Hummer, ISIS Mocks Obama’s ‘Hashtag Diplomacy’

I’m starting to warm to those fanatical nutters of ISIS who are busy trying to recreate an Islamic Caliphate in the middle east. The world is becoming a more divided and hostile place every day, fanatical nutterism seems to be replacing mealy mouthed, politically correct consensus everywhere.

So if we jave to live alongside fanatical nutters I prefer them to be nutters with a sense of humour, and ISIS look to fit that niche far better than feminists, militant gays, Marxists, Tortskyites and right wing extremists like The Liberal Democrats.

Remember a few weeks ago in the lull between Putin annexing Ukraine and ISIS beginning their mach on Baghdad, headline news was all about Nigerian terrorist group Boko Haram kidnapping 200 schoolgirls. Michelle Obama, attempting to gain publicity for one of her fund raising projects, posed with a rather professional looking ‘home made’ placard demanding “Bring Back Our Girls”

michy o bring back our girls

This seemed to tickle the ISIS press office team somewhat, maybe they saw the irony in the fact that the kidnapped girls are in no sense relation to Mrs. Obama, “our” girls, being neither family members, Americans not Christians (which the Obamas are – allegedly).

Last Friday we learned at Michy’s “heartfelt” plea (because the petulant expression shows she is very, very sincere – or maybe she was just wearing her ugly knickers again that day) had failed; “Nigeria wrapped up its inquiry into the abduction of more than 200 schoolgirls by militants on Friday with little progress to show, reporting almost none had been freed after the initial kidnapping some girls escaped from.” Associated Press reported.

The Obama Administrations “smart diplomacy” came in for some cruel criticism, as it had over the debacles in Egypt, Yemen,Libya, Syria, Afghanitan, Iraq, South Sudan and everywhere else.

Up until this point in time however, mocking the administration’s imploding foreign policy and the ineptitude of the FUKUS axis was largely a pastime for American Conservative media and bloggers in Western Europe, for the simple reason that Russians were preoccupied with annexing Crimea, China was busy replacing the US Dollar as global reserve currency, Iran was busy defending Shi’ite dominated areas and the Syrian / Iraqi revolution was taking over Kurdish oil fields, or repelling US-trained and armed militants to spare time to troll the first lady.

That changed this past week when none other than the Al-Qaeda extremist spinoff which in recent weeks has overrun half of Iraq, ISIS, and which as we reported managed to “confiscate” an unknown number of US-made Black Hawk helicopters and Humvees, decided to use the same outlet, Twitter, to not only mock Michelle Obama, but US foreign policy in Iraq. It is here that Obama’s foreign policy is currently paralyzed with the president seemingly unable to decide if he will send in troops, or “Military advisors” as he eupemistically calls them, whether he will side with Iran or with Saudi Arabia, whether he will protect the Maliki cabinet that until last week had America’s blessing, or he will let Russia, China and Iran sort it out beteen themselves.

According to Al Arabiya, “the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has made a mockery of the U.S. first lady Michelle Obama through series of tweets accompanied by the hashtag: #bringbackourhumvee.”

While the world has been looking the other way, Boko Haram has been conquering Nigeria
One story that has slipped away from us recently as we have tried to bring you a fair and balanced view of the Ched Evans With Hunt, the Charlie Hebdo terrorist attack, ships full of migrants abandoned in The Adriatic and the collapse of the Petrodollar amongs other catastrophe’s that have happened, are happening or are waiting to happen, has been the progress of the Boko Haram rebellion in Nigeria.

Truth Starts To Emerge About Boko Haram

While there is still no (official) trade of the 200 plus Nigerian scholgirls allegedly kidnapped by terror group Boko Haram, the habitual meddlers of the FUKUS axis have been quick to recognise the incident as another opportunity for meddling in the domestic politics of another third world country.

So determined is The Rent Boy President Barack Hussein Obama to involve the USA and Europe in conflicts on the African continent in spite of conflicting and often bizarre stories about the fate of the girls coming out of Nigria he has even enlisted the help of the First Transexual as many Americans are calling her. A poster of Michelle, thankfully not sporting the beard that seems to be obligatory for man – women types these days holding up one of those “Bring Back Our Girls” cards was widely promoted around the web.

It brought an instant response from web humourists who are sick (aren’t we all?) of being lectured by self righteos hypocrites. I like this comment on The Obama’s synthetic concern, and it is true of course. Thoughout his presidency to date the only thing barack Obama can find to boast of is that he is “good at killing people”: the peasants of Afghanistan, Yemen, Libya, Iraq, Uganda and Somalia don’t need to look at Boggart Blog for confirmation of that, and I guess the poor of Nigeria will soon learn it without our help.

Next CIA Target For Destabilisation And War – Nigeria

Just a short while ago (hours, not days) I posted at item from African Renaissance News over at the Little Nicky Machiavelli blog under the headline: Boko Haram Is A CIA Covert Operation – Wikileaks.

Wikileaks are not infallible but the report in the African news magazine seemed quite credible and ties in with things I have read before about the activities of western government security agencies in Nigeria and other resource rich African nations (read more at Little Nicky Machiavelli)

Now hot on the heels of that story, I stumble across this:

On 14th April 2014, Boko Haram, an insurgent group operating in Nigeria, abducted up to 230 girls from their school in Chibok. The leader of the group, Abubakar Sheka, recently said in a video that the girls could be sold into slavery.

This is, by any standard, a horrendous crime.

In response to the abduction, there has been a campaign by people in Nigeria to draw attention to the plight of these girls, as a way of building up international pressure for their safe release.

In recent days, however, talk has also started to turn to a potential military response to the kidnapping. The Guardian have reported that ‘The United States and Britain have offered military and technical support to Nigeria to hunt down the Islamist group which has abducted a new batch of schoolgirls’. Britain itself is prepared ‘to send special forces and intelligence gathering aircraft’.

The article also carries a quote from Barack Obama, which strongly suggests that any potential military response won’t just be about securing the release of these girls (if it’s even about that at all).

Read more on that story in The Guardian

Then in the most bizarre twist Australian.com reported that the Nigerian schoolgirls were released weeks ago so WTF is going on?

read full story in The Australian

Could it be perhaps that the whole thing is another Washington / whitehall / United Nations false flag operation to soften us up for war in African where militant Islamic groups appear to be gaining the upper hand against NWO friendly puppet governments?

This, from Nigerian newspaper Vanguard suggests it might:

‘The world media has yet to report on a deadly attack in Gamborou Ngala in the Borno State. According to a report posted today by Vanguard, the jihadist terror group Boko Haram stormed the town.

At least 300 people were confirmed dead on Monday when Boko Haram gunmen in armoured vehicles stormed Gamborou Ngala town in Borno state.

According source the security forces earlier deployed to area, moved to the Lake Chad axis when they received intelligence report that some gunmen were sighted with abducted schoolgirls moving to the area.

The insurgents targetted a local market and fired sporadic shots into the crowd before proceeding into the town to wreak more havoc.

Gamborou, which is situated along Nigeria-Cameroon border is the administrative headquatres of Ngala local government of the state, about 200km from Maiduguri, the capital city.

Senator Ahmed Zannah, who is from the area confirmed the killings, said the invaders spent 12 hours wreaking havoc on defenceless civilians.

Boko Haram’s official name is Jama’atu Ahlis Sunna Lidda’awati wal-Jihad, which translated from the Arabic means “People Committed to the Propagation of the Prophet’s Teachings and Jihad.” The group is a Takfiri offshoot of the Salafi movement. Salafi-Takfiris attack other Muslims and Christians they consider apostates. Boko Haram has worked to impose sharia law in Nigeria, north Cameroon and Niger. It has killed Christians, bombed churches, attacked schools, police stations, government installations, and has kidnapped western tourists.

Prior to the attack, the mainstream media covered an announcement on Monday issued by the Obama administration stating the United States will send military, intelligence and law enforcement advisors to Nigeria to help the government there locate and rescue more than 270 teenage girls abducted by Boko Haram.’

as I have always said, we should disbelieve everything that comes from the FUKUS axis propaganda machine and always oppose military intervention in foreign countries unless we are sure, absolutely sure, those pushing for military action have told us the truth about what is going on.

The New World Order?
It is hard to think of another phrase that gets authority worshippers quite so wound up as New World Order. The worlds always prompt a sneerfest among those who are quick to shout ‘Conspiracy Theory’ and slow to think. The phrase was not coined by a conspiracy theorist, nor was is some secret masonic code used on United States dollar bills to signify the intention to create a global empire (Novus Ordo Seclorum does not even mean ‘New World Order’ – more below).

Anti Gay Law? Goodluck With That Jonathan

Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan has this week signed into law, in the face of massive western pressure over gay rights, a bill that criminalizes same-sex relationships in Africa’s most heavily populated nation.

nigerian President Goodluck Johnathan

Jonathan signed the bill on Monday after long delays due to the bullying of western leaders, Presidency Spokesperson Reuben Abati said, adding, that the national assembly had passed the act last May. We suspect President Jonathan may have had his backbone stiffened by support from Russia and China, both of which would love to be Nigeria’s new best mate.

The new law contains penalties of up to 14 years in prison and bans gay marriage, same-sex romantic relationships and membership of gay rights groups.

“Persons who enter into a same-sex marriage contract or civil union commit an offence and are each liable on conviction to a term of 14 years in prison,” the bill says, adding that, “Any person who registers, operates or participates in gay clubs, societies and organizations or directly or indirectly make public show of same-sex amorous relationship in Nigeria commits an offence and shall each be liable on conviction to a term of 10 years in prison.

Western leaders, including “Rent Boy” Obama, “Eton Bum Boy” Cameron and, “Je-suis-desolee-but-I-prefer-shagging-good-looking-young-actresses Hollande, are said to be furious.

And before you comment, no I’m not anti gay but I am totally against the west meddling in the internal politics of third world nations. What happens in Nigeria is for Nigerians to decide.
