You Didn’t Get mad… (Subtle Reminders)

You didn’t get mad when in 1966 General Aguiyi Ironsi was brutally murdered in revenge; and a unitary government of the North was imposed on all the country.

You didn’t get mad when a covert plan was hatched and implemented to eliminate all Easterners in the North.
You didn’t get mad when the Constitution of the Country was severally abrogated and replaced by a military edict starting from Gowon through to Abdulsalami.
You didn’t get mad when “Federal” Nigeria illegally invaded a country that posed no threat to it- Biafra, and caused the death of over 3 million Easterners and still many lost children.
You didn’t get mad when we spent over 100 billion on many white elephant projects, claiming the “We have so much money and we do not know how to spend it”.
You didn’t get mad when over 10 billion dollars just disappeared during the second oil boom and Nigeria secretly joined the OIC.
You didn’t get mad when Dele Giwa was brutally murdered and yet after three decades his killers walk tall without punishment..
You didn’t get mad when the government was illegally sponsoring killers all over the country stamping out NADECO members and their sympathisers.
You didn’t get mad when we still have those indicted by the Okigbo, Oputa and Halliburton panels walking tall and beating their chests before us.
You didn’t get mad when you saw children, mothers and patients dying of avoidable diseases and the horrible conditions of our health care 1973-1999, and getting worse though!.
You didn’t get mad when over 700,000 innocent women and children in Asaba (1968) and Odi more recently were allowed to drown in their own blood through the bullets of soldiers meant to protect them.
You didn’t get mad when we gave a break to usurpers and murderers and allowed them walk around as free men and many now consider them saints.
You didn’t get mad when lots of “Andrews” started checking out because the country had become a chimney where everybody was silently chocking.
You finally got mad when the tide has simply turned and the people of Nigeria deservedly are waking up to their rights and are asking serious questions and demand for a change. Yes, illegal wars, lies, corruption, torture, stealing your money to make the few rich richer, are all okay with you, but helping Nigeria make a Change . . . oh hell no!
