Organized crime runs Nigeria. SJ Dodgson. MJoTA v8n1 p0505

I am amazed that anyone who knows anything about Nigeria thinks its Federal government has the will or the resources to do anything to rescue the 300 enslaved girl scholars.

Nigeria is run by organized crime and depends on slave labor.

The Federal Government is set up to individually receive any revenues from oil sales, not to hand out money for essential services. A little cash trickles down to schools, universities, police, army and airports where most employees earn sub-poverty wages. Everything else goes into deep pockets to buy personal houses, cars, planes, first-class transport and first-class education at Harvard, Yale, Columbia and to spray cash around at weddings.

The US gave $20million to Nigeria? I bet the money never touched the ground. All you clever people in Washington, you need to read Sahara Reporters and watch Adeola Eunice Fayehun's weekly video.

The prime minister of South Korea resigned after 250 students drowned in an April ferry accident. Their vice principal hanged himself (which I regret) because he could not live with the shame. South Korea collectively is in mourning.

Nigeria, with its culture of indentured servants and slavery, in general does not see the enslavement of girls as a problem. Because of the outrage of the parents and the outrage of good people outside Nigeria, 2 weeks after the girls were taken, the president of Nigeria holds some meetings, arrests some representatives of the families, and begs for cash from the US.
Old cars in Lagos and New York City. SJ Dodgson 2014 MJoTA v8n1 p0408

So if I drive my 1996 Lumina into NYC and park it, anyone who wants it can take it and get it squished? I learned that any vehicle over 8 years old can be sold to metal dealers without proof of ownership. Hmph. I know my baby has at least 10 more years in the North East; maybe 30 in Nigeria.

My first trip to Nigeria I was based for 3 weeks in a suburb of Lagos. After the skies had stopped dumping water on us, which it did for 2 days, I went for a walk to the markets to buy fruit. This trip I made frequently during my visit, and the first time I saw a rusting exoskeleton of a car. As the weeks went on it was transformed into a functional, gleaming working car.

The concept that any scrap can be used, and made into something is ancient, and, during the second world war, got my relatives through the bombings in England and my children's relatives through the Holocaust and bombings in Germany. And certainly got my Biafran friends through the Biafran War that killed over 3 million of their relatives.

The law in New York City is absurd and targets the poor and the thrifty. They need to repeal it.
