The Golden Shackles of Bondage,That's the predicament of a reformer, and the Tragedy of the Oppressed...who admires his Chains of Slavery, as Golden Bracelets of Love.



The Golden Shackles of Bondage

A while back, we secured the services of a Legal Consultant to thoroughly interrogate the impact of the Land Use Decree of 1978 and trace its origins with my Team. The process took the whole of 5 days, a small fortune, human resources...and plenty of researches.

We traced the Origins of that inhuman decree to 1968, and found out that the 1969 Petroleum Act was a progenitor, and the offspring in 1978 was to defend the parent born in 1969. We researched the past, present and future implications of this decree using Regression Methods after converting the data to numeric. The summary of the outcome of that research was published here as "2077, Momentos". The controversy led us to publish sequels to 2077.

We had two very distinct reactions from a select group in the North and another in the South. Here they go:

Reaction 1 (From an Abdullahi Abubakar):
"The Land Use Decree cannot be removed. It is a policy of unity and any attempt to abrogate it would cause a war in Nigeria"! I asked him to provide a reason for his assertion but he left and has refused to respond ever since. His threat was well received.

Reaction 2 (From a Barrister Emeka Okeke...*name distorted)
"Baron, don't talk about what you don't know; I'm an experienced lawyer of repute and I'm telling you that the Law shall not deprive anyone of anything! Stop getting people worked up and face your profession". Dude stopped short of calling me a ''bloody bastard". Several people engaged him but was adamant and pig-headed. Then I politely asked him a question, "Sir, do tell us here and now, is the 1978 Land Use Decree a good Law"? Till date, there has been no response.

Inference
The one that benefits from the Law that steals the resources of others has threatened to go to war and even have me murdered for suggesting that people should be free to use their resources they would and pay hefty taxes on them.

The one who's resources are being stolen and oppressed with, has threatened to have me sued, tried and hopefully jailed...and him I fight for!

That's the predicament of a reformer, and the Tragedy of the Oppressed...who admires his Chains of Slavery, as Golden Bracelets of Love.

Now, I understand why Jesus really wept...I wail....our people suffer for Lack of Knowledge...it's a crying shame! 😢
