Nigeria Is Impossible To Govern If You Are Not A Thief

September 21, 2017

 

HOW DO YOU GOVERN A PEOPLE WHO CELEBRATE CORRUPTION AND THEN CRY WHEN THE DAMAGE IS DONE, AS IF THEY HAD NO IDEA WHERE IT CAME FROM.

A COUNTRY WHERE TREASURY LOOTERS ARE WORSHIPED AND THEIR ILL-GOTTEN WEALTH IS A SOURCE OF FASCINATION.

 

A COUNTRY WHERE EVERYONE BRIBES TO GET HIS WAY AND EXPECTS TO BE BRIBED TO DO THEIR JOB OR ANY JOB. 

HOW DOES A GOOD MAN GOVERN A COUNTRY THAT STILL CELEBRATES A PRESIDENT WHO PRESIDED OVER THE WANTON PILFERING OF IT'S RESOURCES AND SOME OPENLY WISH HE COULD COME BACK TO POWER . 

A COUNTRY WHERE PEOPLE SPEND MORE TIME ON THEIR KNEES THAN THEY DO ON THE JOB. A COUNTRY WHERE WORK SCHEDULE RUNS FROM 7:30AM TO 4:30PM, BUT WORKDAY ENDS AT 12 NOON ON A VERY GOOD DAY . 

HOW DO YOU FIX AN ECONOMY THAT IMPORTS EVERYTHING FROM TOOTHPICK TO TOILET PAPER, AND MAKES NOTHING? AN ECONOMY THAT HAS FOR YEARS AND EVEN DECADES HAD ONLY ONE CURRENCY, CORRUPTION.

HOW DOES A GOOD MAN GOVERN A COUNTRY THAT HAS MORE PLACES OF WORSHIP THAN FARM LANDS OR FACTORIES, AND EVERYONE SEES CORRUPTION AS MEANS TO GOD'S BLESSING. 

A COUNTRY WHERE GETTING RICH FROM PRAYER AND NOT WORK IS A DAILY SPIRITUAL DIET, AND MEN OF GOD OPENLY FRATERNIZE WITH CERTIFIED AND INDICTED THIEVES AND DROLL OVER THEIR LOOT. 

A COUNTRY WHERE HARD WORK IS DERIDED AND EVERYONE SEEKS WEALTH AT ALL COST.

A COUNTRY WHERE POLITICIANS HAVE NO IDEOLOGY, AND POLITICS A COMPETITION BETWEEN TWO THIEVING PARTIES THAT ARE ONLY UNIFIED BY THEIR COMPETITION FOR THE COUNTRY'S RESOURCES . 

A COUNTRY WHERE THE PRESIDENT MUST BRIBE THE LEGISLATORS TO GET HIS BUDGET PASSED . 

HOW DOES A GOOD MAN GOVERN NIGERIA WHEN EVERYONE HE SEES AROUND CANNOT WAIT TO GET RID OF HIM SO THEY CAN START STEALING, AND THEY ALL SEE HIM AS THE STUMBLING BLOCK TO THEIR DESIRE TO LOOT THE TREASURY.

NIGERIA IS NO COUNTRY FOR GOOD MEN, AND GOOD MEN IN POWER ARE OXYMORONS.

*It took Mahathir Muhammad 22 years (1981-2003) to fix Malaysia.*

*It took Lee Kuan Yew 8 consecutive terms in office for 30 years (1959-1990) to fix Singapore.*

*It took Jerry Rawlings 26 years (1981-2002) to fix Ghana.*

*It took Meles Zenawi 12 years (1995-2012) to fix Ethiopia.*

*BUT THEY WANT NIGERIA TO BE MIRACULOUSLY FIXED IN 2 YEARS.*

*Hmm! NIGERIANS ARE EXCEPTIONAL WONDERFUL PEOPLE.*
