Yes i said it. We are a very destructive country, we is the collective, all of us. A few people have been robbing us blind, taking our money and using it to buy themselves private jets and come election time, they try to give us biscuit or mini bags of rice to make us temporarily forget all the atrocities they have committed against us. Nigeria we hail thee.
Do you know foreign airlines are now stopping over in Ghana to buy aviation fuel? Or that our local airlines can no longer fly because there is no aviation fuel? Or that many of us can not go about our daily activities because we cannot find fuel to buy on the black market? NUPENG and marketers have gone on strike and have left the entire nation hostage. Fuel that ordinarily shouldn’t cost more than N100 per litre is now sold on the black market at N400. Woe betide you, our entirely corrupt police force catches you buying black market, they tell you to come and bail yourself out for N1,000 per person and you have to bail the said fuel out too.
My question is why do we allow people who don’t want the better of this nation as a whole continue to sit in positions of authority? No one that has served in any government during and post Babangida should be allowed back into office. I am sorry we need different minds. America is corrupt, but they built a system that works. Nigerians want to buy 500 houses in Dubai that they can never live in, and 1000 plots of land in Ikoyi that they don’t need.. People should remember that the people they deprive of a decent standard of living would be the threats to their children’s future.
As for the 18 or so states that owe civil servants their salaries, the Governors and Chief Financial officers and accountants of those states should be queried and maybe even jailed. What did they do with allocations? If you know allocations are dwindling – adjust your workforce in that direction – that is assuming the monies for salaries have not been diverted to political campaigns or personal bank accounts.
Nigeria Makes me tired, and to be frank some days i start to examine the options available. Ghana might not be so bad, but my dreams are here, so what to do?
Giant of Africa is more like a retarded giant, always doing things backa**wards.
