The other day Goodluck Jonathan met the press and exposed a great deal about his ignorance. When responding to question relating to government spending Mr. Jonathan had to state that he eats twice a day.
That sort of response alone shows that Nigerians have been taking a ride on a sinking ship, and it’s been more than 50 years in the ship. What a tragedy.
The man even went on to state that he didn’t promise to eradicate poverty but to increase wealth. That’s like the dumbest comment any president has made since Berlusconi said he preferred to have sex with a 17 year old rather than be gay.
The money that has been stolen in the Nigerian government since 1960 is now estimated to be uncountable. No one knows the exact value. It could be a value enough to eradicate global poverty, not poverty in Nigeria alone.
Nigerians are resilient.
Otherwise you cannot imagine that despite the waste, another 5 Trillion Naira got missing under Jonathan.
Add that to the money this guy and his crew are stealing daily.
The proportion of corruption in Nigeria is inestimable. I don’t think any country should be placed close to Nigeria in terms of known corruption. Unknown corruption is another parameter with varying global implications.
Nigeria’s corruption is known, open and wicked in proportion.
