As a patriotic Nigerian, who buys only made in Nigeria, and uses a green, white and green  coloured toothbrush, bed-sheet and towel, the news that President Buhari offered to help Germany fight terrorism, following the shopping mall shooting in Munich, made me square up my shoulders with pride.

Suddenly, as I was about to call my group of political discussants to boast of our international prowess, something struck me and I wondered wait oh! Wait oh! Chika wake up oh!

No be Naija wey get plenty security issues wen e never solve wan go EPP Germany so?

This is not trivialising the killing of innocent people in Germany or denying the fact that terrorism has to be tacked head-long, but the truth remains that Nigeria has enough security issues it has not resolved.

My deepest sympathies go out to the families of those who died in the unfortunate domestic terror incident.

When I read the press statement issued by Femi Adesina, I wondered if the Federal Government has descended into the arena of kiddies April Fool’s day pranks, but my calendar quickly reminded me that we are in July.

What made it clearer was that I have been praying to God for my July salary to come quick. Joor, don’t blame me.

The thought kept ringing in my head, so this no be Apray Foo (April Fool) joke? So Buhari really read this statement out for Adesina to write? Or did the revered spokesman and composer of the wailers tune scribble the speech while having breakfast?

Wait oh! Duro na! what does Nigeria want to offer Germany apart from a shoulder to cry on?

I know by now, those who are more patriotic and vast than I am in international politics have picked their stones to throw.

I kuku ready for una before I carry my pen to write. So faya on.

Don’t get me wrong, Nigeria is gifted, and has a lot of things Germany can benefit from, but in the context of helping Germany fight terrorism, what do we have to offer?

People are being killed in the North-East and the abducted Chibok girls are still in the Boko Haram shopping mall in Sambisa Forest.

I know the cheerleaders will say the Army is winning the war on terrorism. Nice one.

My question is how has it epped the family members of the missing students?

What of those who were reportedly killed in the shopping mall called Benue state by marauding Fulani herdsmen, who have become untouchable to the extent that the Federal Government is negotiating to create grazing reserves for them?

Anyway, that is another day’s matter.

The Niger-Delta shopping mall that produces the milk that fattens the federal chiefs, has experienced constant attacks by the Niger Delta Avengers.

Yes, I know there are talks of a dialogue going on, but the Federal Government spoilt the matter when, according to reports, they said the oil companies in the Niger Delta region are negotiating on their behalf.

I said according to reports oh! Before they say Sambo Dasuki gave me arms purchase money to buy Bread and Ewa Agonyi (Beans). I no fit shout oh!

Before I forget, what of the South-East shopping mall, where Biafra agitators are calling for their right to freely exist on their own?

Is it finances we want to offer to Germany? When Kemi Adeosun has said that she cannot come and kill herself in this technical recession period?

Is it weapons we want to offer to Germany to help them fight terrorism?

The massive fraud that characterised the proposed purchase of arms for the war against Boko Haram left our gallant soldiers paralysed and scampering at the war cry of the newest member of the sect who carries a matchet.

Abi na Giant of Africa title give us the impetus to overstate? My warri friend say “Over-skill dey kii monkey suntimes.”

I wonder what Angela Merkel of Germany will say when she hears that Broda Bubu offered to help her country fight terrorism.

If she was a typical Nigerian woman, She will say Chai! President Oby (Obama) wonders shall never end. See me see wahala!

See what this small boy that killed people in the shopping mall has caused.

President Obama might just reply and say, Angee let it be, we all have to say something at times like this.

President Buhari, Nigerians are nursing wounds from shots in the economic shopping mall and many poor folks are finding it hard to feed daily. Please write a letter.

The Munich shopping mall shooting has brought two things to the fore, and they are that:

1. Frustrated citizens can go to any length to express their anger or let out their frustration. Reports say the shooter was mentally disturbed, because he had been bullied severally.

2. The wrong ideology can turn the innocent of souls against his country.

These are some of the the issues the government should be writing a letter to Nigerians about, and telling them how they can be solved, but the Federal Government communication and information team so far, has just been acting like a Gestapo (Nazi Secret State Police) propaganda machine.

President Buhari please it is the seventh month of the year, 2016,  and we are still waiting for your next media chat. Please write Nigerians a letter. Talk to us.
