CONVERSATION WITH A NIGERIAN “INTELLECTUAL”
Hi Prof. It’s been a long time. How are you doing?
We are on strike.
Strike again! Are you still teaching journalism?
Yes, I am, but barely surviving. The facilities are from the 70’s and we are teaching 21st journalism.
The politicians have all the honey to themselves. They forget we educated and made them.
Some of my students are politicians and they have forgotten their teachers.
Talking about politicians, there is this widespread allegation that Muhammadu Buhari is dead and a doppelgänger from Sudan, Jubrin al-Sudani Buhari is subbing for him.
I will not believe it until a reputable foreign media such as the BBC confirms it.
What if he was installed by the British, do you expect the BBC to expose the British Government?
I do not trust the Nigerian press.
And you trust the foreign media?
Isn’t it ironic that you do not trust the products of your education.
You must be “Teaching them nonsense,” to paraphrase Fela Anikulapo Kuti.
Whose interests do you think the VOA (Voice of America) and BBC (British Broadcasting Company) serve?
They do not serve Nigerian or African interests.
What of the physical evidence such as waving with his fists to avoid imaging of his handprints?
What of the anthropomorphic differences between Jubrin and Muhammadu?
Why would the current occupant of Aso Rock not give interviews or speak Fulfulde?
Still, I do not trust the Nigerian press, they can be bought.
And the foreign press is immune to corruption?
Have you critically examined all the evidences alleging that Buhari is not the real Buhari but a doppelgänger from Sudan?
I do not have time for that.
You are a Professor, teaching journalism at a Nigerian University. What do you profess, is it enlightenment or enslavement?
Aren’t you supposed to use your time in research to refute these allegations?
Please, enough of this nonsense. I have to feed my children. We are currently on strike, for poor conditions of service.
I am using my car as an Uber taxi to make ends meet.
You will be on strike for a long time, until you start producing graduates that are not imbued with post-colonial mentality as you are.
Chinua Achebe was right in claiming that African Professors are not real Professors.
Have you read, “Morning Yet On Creation Day?”

If not, please do.
Honestly, Professors such as you ensure that Africa shall always be a pawn of the East and West.
Please leave me alone, Africastallestman.
The more Africastallestman investigates the African conundrum, the more convinced, Africastallestman is, about the genetic subservience of Africans to other races.
