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.

    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.

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.

    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

  • HALADU A SANI

    well constructed, exactly as the crooks drama is but rejected by the Almighty for the masses to know.

  • oyeleye

    True! But this does not bring joy or good tidings to the heart of man. Instead, hopelessness.

  • Emperor

    Very ingenious! U deserve an award for this brilliant piece

  • udy

    Its so sad – it just explains how rotten the whole system is. Its about time we stopped asking for a messiah but take our own destiny in our hands.

  • alamu

    Ingenuinety at its very best. In the mist of this comic relief, the people can’t just weep ooo but have to help themselves! Arise o compatriots!!!

    This piece is awesome. I wish for a follow up article. @ dimeji farabale, he is not thwarting scripture since he never said it was scripture in the first place. It is d old english style of writing. Nevertheless I love ur enthusiasm for His kingdom. Afterall scripture says “zeal for my fathers house has consumed me”

    Shame to Nigeria as a nation. This shldnt be the end of this case. The house should appoint another head of committee while Lawan is suspended definitly

  • rosysandy ikoro

    God shall continue to expose them,they thought that the prayers of we christains will be in vain,shame to them.

  • Folusho

    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.

    Therefore the people of the land pleaded to the king to amend their vocabulary: saying thou king, let farouk now be called facrook, which ye means a sainty bribe taker, to farouk to mean the act of taking bribe as a saint & person of integriy also to be farouked to mean being caught taking bribe under the camera. And the king accepted their demands!

    I agree with Dimeji. The nation is in a sorry state, but then the word of God should’nt be manipulated to express our displeasure in this context. Any reader of the scripture would know what portions of the Bible was changed. May God deliver this nation from the rougues in authority

  • bankole

    The Nigeria political movie industry is becoming more interesting as dis politicians are always out there to entertain us. It was Etteh ,Bankole ,Elumelu in the year past, now it is turn of Farouk to take the centre stage. May God deliver us.

    Unless the Youths and the future leaders of this nation rises up,nothing good will come out of this nation called Nigeria.

    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.

    We are tired of these doods looting and wasting our resources

    I have read this article over and over (more than 25 times).I kept reading this when business is bad so as to lighten up. I just wrote a book but I must say BUKOLA is set apart for greatness. I did laugh while reading but internally am crying for the future of this nation.The greatest mistake nigerians made in 2012 was d failure of the January protest. Perhaps,that opportunity for change may not come in a long time.

    Just by reading your questions I can see you need more experience in Forex trading. 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.
