“Nigeria! Good people……yes! great nation…………?”
‘baba n’mogba, tan ba n’tan e, koo ma tan ara re’- if you are being deceived, never deceive yourself.
As good as we are, we are too docile as a people. We are too full of if you cannot win them, join them. Why would a leader voted for, earn so much money, deliver so little and yet embezzle so much public fund. Still demand respect for doing so. Where is our value?
With kind of money Nigeria had seen, we should be traveling across the length and breadth in fast trains. In cities, trams and light trains instead of keke Napep. Our cities are flooded with tricycles which we don’t even assembles talk less of manufacturing. The embezzlers will tell you that it did not started with them. Even in 16 years of suplus, no single refinery was added to the existing four that is inadequate.
What they could only give us were fuel importers.
I had been saying they must be of little mind. Because all what they think is acquisition of wealth without adding value to the people. If a party tagged itself the biggest in Africa and boastfully said they will rule for 60 years back to back; ‘then we don turn to munmun (dummy).
We said no and voted for change. They have come out arrogantly to say they had a better performance. Where there’s lack of discipline, would there be progress?. They even boasted of taking power back by 2019. A mirage, mere wishful thinking. So it seems, but a big challenge to the people.
What we need is genuine service to our father land.
