The Gospel According To ‘Saint’ Farouk

Published:13 Jun, 2012

1)  And it came to pass after these things, on the first day of the first month of the twelfth year after the second millennium, that king Jona son of Bele announced to the people saying; there is no money left in the royal treasury, and the future of the kingdom is in great danger.

2) Therefore, a measure of oil shall no longer sell for three scores of silver and seven, but shall now be seven scores of silver and one. But the people grumbled aloud, and said unto another, what shall it profit our king to gain all these oil money and lose his throne?

3) For it is appointed unto him to reign but once, and after this prison, for many are the atrocities which he has committed.

4)  So they said unto the king, eat thou thy food in peace in the palace, and surround thou thyself with thine women, only touch not our oil price and do thy people no harm.

5) But the king would not listen, and said unto himself, I know my people, they shall only grumble for a while and soon they shall forget.

6) But the people would not forget, for the burden was too much for them to bear, and they said; now unto him that is able to increase the price of oil exceeding abundantly above all that his people can bear or think, according to the greed which worketh in him;

7) Unto him be curses in the streets by the masses throughout all ages, protests without end.

8) So they took to the streets and gave the land no peace, and there was no going out or coming in throughout the kingdom for two weeks, and the king feared greatly and said to himself, surely these people shall overturn me if I answer them not.

9) So he called the head of the labourers unto the palace, and gave him bags of gold, that he mayest turn off the wrath of the people against the king.

10) So the king assembled the people and said unto them; a measure of oil shall no longer be seven scores of silver and one, but shall now be four scores of silver, one dozen and five, to this your leaders have agreed. Praise me now therefore for I am a benevolent king.

11) And after all these, the Loudspeaker of the House of People said, let us inquire into the king’s claim that there be no money in the royal treasury. So they appointed Farcrook, son of Lawal.

12) And said unto him, gather ye now all the oil sellers, that we may know who stole from the kingdom. This did him with diligence, and came back with his report saying

13) Thieves abound in the land, and so have the oil sellers stole from the people, and gave them not oil, this they did with the help of Aliyaro the king’s mistress; and the amount he mentioned was unheard of in the land.

14) When the people heard this, they were dismayed, and sorrow gripped their hearts.

15) But the oil sellers went in unto the king in his chamber, and said; rememberest thou O king that the what we stole did we make available to thy campaign, and by thus did we make you king.

16) If thou deliver us unto the people that they may punish us, we will hold not our tongue to tell the people that thou art one of us.

17) And they said unto him, how else shall we destroy the message if not to destroy the messenger? Let us therefore implicate Farcrook the son of Lawal in this matter.

18) So they sent a certain rich man from the West by the name Otedollar, and he took Farcrook into his house and gave him some money, that he may alter the report which he had set before the people.

19) And it was that Otedollar went before an assembly of the people and said unto them, trust ye this man who said we stole from the treasury? Surely he is one of us, for he came unto me in the middle of the night, and he left with his pockets full of money.

20) And the people where amazed, and their hearts bled, for Farcrook was a man in whom they had put their trust.

21) So Farcrook arose, and said; Otedollar is my briber, I did not request. He maketh me to sit down in his Maitama house; he leadeth me beside the chilled champagne.

22) He exploited my greed; he leadeth me in the path of marked dollars for subsidy’s sake.

23) Yea, even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of EFCC, I will fear no arrest: for bribes are with me; my loots and my kickbacks they comfort me.

24) Thou preparest the dollars before me, in the presence of the SSS: thou anointest my mouth with wine; my pocket runneth over.

25) Surely the shame and reproach shall follow me all the days of my life, but I will dwell in the house of PDP forever and ever.

26) And the people wept, but there was no one to console them.

    Weldone!Thanks 4 dis revelatn

  62. Bakos J Iliya says:

    MENE, MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN. Oh thou dishounorable chairman, Nigerians gave the same positions to thy fellows before thee. But when there heart was lifted up to gratification and grid, they were shamelessly deposed and handed over to the valleys of EFCC to answer to the law and eat with common crime-nal. And thou Farcrock who was a witness and campaigner has not humble thy heart though thou knowest all this; But thou has lifted up thy heart to receive gratification to enjoy with your cuncubines and praise the gods of corruption and immoral decadence in Naija. And thou has not keep the trust Nigerian bestowed on you. Then was this hand writing send.
    And this is the interpretation: MENE; thy membership had been numbered and finished. TEKEL; Thou are been weighed in the balance(if found wanting) PERES; thy membership will be taken and given to another. And what will happen in the night, wait until the Media took their pen they will write it.

  67. David says:

    Brilliant, african intelligence…..keep up d good work!

  68. Lanre Lewis says:

    An interesting read and I commend your creativity. This is a good sarcastic representation of the serious problem in the land. From Power Probe blackmail of the pointman (Elumelu) to Farcrook now in the Fuel Subsidy probe…haaaaaaa Naija Elite (Cabal, Mafia,Cartel..whatever)! Would we ever get any justice in this land?

  69. viikie says:

    A certain rich man from the west by the name Otedollar!
    Simply brilliant.

  70. Beautiful piece. You are seriously an unserious writer.

  71. Bola Omodun Ilori says:

    Good revelation
    The Bible said something terribly good about them in Job 27:13-23.
    Their children shall be fot the sword, their offspring shall go hugry, and many of them die of pestilence, other people will eat the fruits of their labour, their home will becme desolate and they shall die without hope: So says the word of God

  72. Funke says:

  79. Tola Ajibola says:

    Its judt unbelievable that a highly respected Faruk can have s free fall like that.the guy should just resign and submit himself to the EFCC for prosecution…its beta for him as a muslim.I know he knows this himself.

  98. I just love this..this is nice. The unrepentant sinners will NOT go unpunished. Imagine if we didn’t hear about the scandal. Many like this go and we never get to know about it!

  99. Barnabas says:

    When men start the use of their pen, bad leaders should tremble for a revolution is looming. This is a master-piece. Has the style of stories in the Arabian Night. Keep writing. Keep portraying the corruption of our leaders to the masses.

  100. Toyin says:

    Everyone finds this hillarious but the question is how long? How long ll corruption continue to thrive like it is economic development.The puzzle called Ms Otteh and members of rep is yet to be unravelled.The other day Obasanjo said they re all rogues.Is it nt clear to the world now.Still they ll nt let the poor man be. Omogui-Otauru is looking for everymeans of getting tax frm the highly deprived Nigerians all in the name of doing her work very well.No more conscience in the Land.

    The cabal set farouk lawal up. the book The art of war comes to mind…character assassination

  120. Austine says:

    God will continue to expose them. This is what I call the conspiracy of high people in high places against the masses.
    The good thing is that the masses can also conspire and vote them out in 2015

  121. Awiloju says:

    Great story, good comments. But what next? Business as usual, I assure you. Worse corrupt practices are on-going somewhere. Unfortunately, nobody to shout ORDER! Unless God is ready to intervene, we are doomed like Sysiphus.

  129. jossy says:

    What a creativity! As long as this conscienceless group are allowed to rule us Nigeria is caged.

  130. Farouk, when Ribadu was given such money he lodged it in the federation account and walked away. Why didn’t you do the same?

  131. kizito says:

    Who says Nigerians are not creativ?! Wow, dis is not only full of humour it has also helped me in undastanding what is really going on. Nice 1 bukky more grease to ur elbow

  135. Mee says:

    Its a shame. Gaint of africa has become the ant. All because of greedy politicians. God bless Nigeria.

  136. foreal says:

    This writer is more creative, selfless and patriotic than the crooks (all politicians and their supporters inclusive) we call leaders. What a failing country…….

  137. stone says:

    My fellow Nigerians, we musnt vote in these corrupted guys again o come 2015. Please by 2014 do your own area door to door campaign and advice people to vote right. The last election I advised many of our masses to vote in a leader who is doing well for them or a new candidate entirely, their reply was abeg anyone dats gives me money na hin I go vote for. As little as 1,000naira these peoples votes were bought. I told them the money u are given now will finish in a day and you won’t see your corrupted candidates till next election, that is 4years of suffering all for 1k. My people we must get it right come 2015. Let’s start thinking of a good presidential candidate from now on so we can spead the word to all of his good deeds or governance. Do the same for the senates and house of reps candidates, the power is in our hands. Even if we have to vote in new and fresh candidates it is better a risk than vote in these recycled thieves. God bless my country

  138. Chila says:

    This piece is hillarious, saddening and thought provoking. If we continue like this in this nation flowing with milk and honey, then we are doomed and God forbid. Both givers and collectors should not be spared. Farcrook is not alone neither is Otedollar. But who will deal with this bad situation? Can king Jona son of Bele do it? I very much doubt. I’m crying and bleeding inside of me right now. The Farcrook debacle is a destraction from the main issue which was well planned and carefully executed by the cabal.

    We need to kill all politicians from 1978 till date to cleans this land of corruption,we need to kill their offsprings just like what happened in Ghana in those days,Libya and Egypt of Today.

Please listen to my advice and dont deposit any money until you have opened a free demo account first and have traded with it for at least a few weeks. This will give you some basic Forex trading experience before you risk real money. You will lose all your money if you start trading now. You also do not need $1000 to start trading. There are many brokers that have no minimum deposit and offer micro accounts. I have a great broker listed in the source below that has no minimum deposit to start and accounts are opened instantly.
