Nigerians know those behind the problems bedeviling the country and pretending or playing the game of the ostrich is the height of self hypnotism.
Most of those aspiring to rule Nigeria are not leaders but corruption personified who see occupying the Seat as a right, a life long inordinate ambition without recourse to the fact that desperation leads to destruction.
Wither the young? Why the rigmarole around the same persons who have kept Nigeria comatose and still poised to continuously gang-rape her to death?
Bailing the country is a practical thing and implies that everyone must get involved. These men liken the land to a whore who is ready to frolic with anyone with putrid stenchy money, forget that “he that is joined (sleeps) with a whore becomes one with her”?
The question of conscience is this: in all fairness, how many Nigerians believe in the likes of Tinubu, Atiku et al? Are we all running mad in Nigeria, shouting ourselves hoarse for those who see us mere marionettes, zombies or even most unfortunately, manequins?
The legendary late Fela Anikulapo Kuti’s song comes to mind: “zombie no go go unless you tell am to go, zombie”. Pray, is that what we have all become, doing the “joro jaara joro, zombie way na one way” movement?
These bunch of hypocrites who parade themselves as politicians have failed the country and this calls for sober reasoning.
Many have become vocal to issues that border on national politics but become chickens as concerns the rot visible in their States, Local Governments and Wards when crispy pieces of naira notes are flashed on their faces forgetting that deliberate impoverishment is a potent political weapon deployed by the oppressors.
Can Nigerians be truthful enough to say that they are comfortable with how things are panning out?
Do we not know who the thieves are? Do we not know those without a verifiably legitimate source of living but have become emergency philanthropists?
Do we not know the persons who turned covid-19 palliatives into birthday gifts? Do we not know the sponsors of terrorism?
Do we not know politicians who before now could not afford a decent meal a day but now owns mansions in choice nations in the world?
Do we not know Governors who have turned a public office into a personal business?
What exactly do we not know?
Are we feigning ignorance that local governments are shortchanged every month as regards their legitimate allocations from the Federal Government? Show us a single Local Council with less than 90 million naira allocation in the present day Nigeria.
Can a profound answer be given as to what Governors do with the mind-blowing monies collected as “security votes” and why persons with germane divergent views rumpled and even annihilated?
Presently, a barrel of crude is above a $100 but poverty is stirring all and sundry on the face. Wither probity and accountability?
What questions are Nigerians not asking?
When delegates take bribes ranging from $20,000, $15,000 each from over 10 aspirants to elect a candidate to fly their flag in the presidential election, when Presidential aspirants step down and cash out, one begins to wonder the state of sanity of those opportuned to be at the upper echelon of the societal ladder.
Are we doomed? Do we dissolve this country and each one goes his separate ways or does God do a sodom and Gomorrah on the land so that everything seizes to exist?
Where are we stepping to?
