Policies are meant to pass through the eagle eyes of analysis. It is this strong and indisputable fact that upholds responsible countries statehood. I would not rush into activating referencing of developed economics here, because I understand the shameful excuses of Nigerians towards unearthing of such reference.  They will hastily say to anyone with such presentation, “Nigeria and those developed economies are not the same”. I also remind these hypocrites and self-destroyers that in their hypocrisy lay their shame and retrogression.

 I am here to give justice to the funny and contradictory new immigration policy of Nigeria which was made known to the world few days ago. It will be important to start here by making one understand that The Aswan Forum was announced by al-Sisi in February during an African Union summit in Addis Ababa, capital of Ethiopia. It is a brain child of Egypt which contrary to Nigerian government position is for security of Africa. Aswan Forum was not conceived as an integrational process as AU, ECOWAS and other sub-regional bodies of the region are already configured for that.

The present Fulani controlled government understand too well the great opposition the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) are posing to their hasty drive to islamise and fulanise Nigeria. They feel that the sudden sweeping of Biafraland and subsequent fierce diplomatic and media edge by IPOB stand as a clog to the wheel of Fulanisation and Islamisation. To the pioneers of this idea, the transfer of legitimacy by the Biafran people from the Fulani anointed politicians of Biafra extraction to IPOB leadership, calls for review of their adopted plan of action.

To the projectors of fulanisation and islamisation, IPOB global wings make them to see the needs for calling of Muslim Umar and global Fulani society for their future planned jihad against Biafraland. There is this conception by some elements within the power that be that Nnamdi Kanu have transcended the Biafran project to Judeo-Christian phenomenon which to them, is more of future international war than internal war, hence there is the need to remove various impediments towards the influx of Jihadists from Sahel to Biafraland for massacre of the Biafran people.

Some persons in their efforts have tried to give coloration between the aforementioned immigrational policy with economic face. That is normal in a society where the supposedly socio-political commentators and the media practitioners are more of favour seekers than pro-humanity folks.  There is nothing economic about the policy other than religion. For instance, countries adjust on their immigrational policies or flexibility when these factors are at play;

IT IS AGREED AT SUPRANATIONAL BODY WHICH AN ADJUSTING STATE IS A PARTY TO - This implies that what a particular country wants to implement is a regional or sub-regional immigrational decision. For instance, members of EU and ECOWAS are mandated by their regional and sub-regional organizations protocols to allow the free flow of citizens of member states. Evidence abounds that some countries see these integrational processes which seek borderless borders among member states as burden to their micro-economic development. It is the same reason that protectionists UK and USA are walking away from EU and reviewing NAFTA to USMCA.

What one with sound knowledge political economy will find out to unearth here, is why is Nigeria making this statement not in AU or ECOWAS platform, but on Egyptian driven platform which is mostly attended by Muslim countries of Africa? If such pronouncement could neglect AU platforms or ECOWAS platform which Nigeria is violating her protocols to through her unitary closure of her border, it then means that is more of message to the Muslim world than Africans.

Countries think of flexible immigration policies when it is obvious based on the available statistics that there is increase in industrial production with decrease in man power. At this juncture, immigration policies are adjusted to encourage immigrants come in. Even at that, areas of waivers are strictly stipulated which doesn’t grant avenue for all entrance. But in Egypt announcement, the door was open “for Africans” at the very time it is widely known that ISIL West Africa is building up at the Sahel with the sole aim of unleashing mayhem on the indigenous people. While the rest of African nations are reviewing their borders control for tight monitoring of who enters and who doesn’t due to advancement of ISIWA, Nigeria is opening it wider.

It is obvious that Nigeria internal unemployment rate is at exploding point. So why calling for mass entrance of people from Africa?  UAE, Canada and the rest are opening flexible immigration policies due to their growing need for human labours. So what plans are on ground to fix these mass immigrants if not for Jihad? America closed her southern border to save her domestic jobs for Americans despite her strong productive strengths. For what ground is Nigeria inviting the “Africans”?  If she doesn’t have job and better lives to offer them, they will have miserable to offer Nigerians. And the government knows this!
More will be coming later
