On Oct 1st, 1960, Nigeria officially obtained her independence from the British Govt. Ever since then the values of our lives have diminished tremendously. A few idiots have plundered the National Treasury to personal gains. The grave consequences of this unwelcomed attitude of deep corruption is devasting hardship on majority of Nigerians. Everything that can be used to measure the quality of life is in a sorry state save for the handling of GSM phones by dick, tom and harry.
Education, Power supply, water, roads, medical facilities, clean environment and a few other important things that bring happiness are either redundant, extinct or in coma.
At 46, what a shame! Nigeria, wherewithal thy glory?
Did Babangida forget anything in Dodan Barracks? Can someone tell him that he cannot return to Aso Rock even though his Government commissioned it? We cannot have back Mariam for rural life to better women. We don’t want sand in our garri anymore.
And why is he not in court yet to answer for all his crimes and corrupt charges? What are the Authorities waiting for?
We have a big opportunity in 2007 to actually usher in New Breeds of Politicians while maintaining the anti-corruption organs of governement as watch dogs.
The big question: will it work? How long before EFCC becomes a useless and unnecessary arm of government?
Will corruption cease in Nigeria? Will life get better?
Nigeria is a country of over 100 million people, a country with blessed landscape and resources. A land flowing with the proverbial milk and honey. It is almost impossible to make a quick run of the many ways in which Nigeria is a blessed country. But the big question is, how many people are blessed in Nigeria as a result of the wealth of the nation?
It will be nice to return power back to the people. What kind of power do I mean?
If I was from Oyo state, I swear that I would have denounced my stateship. Indeed there are crazy things going on in every states in Nigeria. Western Nigeria is the cradle of academic excellence ( I beg to be corrected) and in Oyo, some tropical gangsters took over the reign of governance by force!!! (coup in agbada) and it was alright by everybody and the coconut head called OBJ took side with Baba that ate and didn’t wash his hands. They call him Adedibu.
The Anambra saga and all other rubbish(es) are insults to our collective intelligence.
When will a graduate rule in Nigeria? I really want to know!
For every nation that is developed..it took a collective will. The collective will in nigeria is to remain stupid, corrupt and primitive.
Nigeria is like BABEL. People speak different languages and understand the same thing in different ways. Hence, the inability to advance since 1960.
In Nigeria, politics means the act of stealing and taking by force.
Nigeria remains the ONLY country in the world where votes are not counted in order to win elections. It is amazing the cost of conducting elections when the winners are already known or selected.
In Nigeria, you must be rich to be in an election race and your first assignment when you get into office is to collect back this money that you put into the race. It is a shame that it is what everybody including your family members expect of you as a politician.
