Power Must Change Hands in Nigeria!

Honesty is not the best policy in Nigeria, because majority of Nigerians prefer half-truths and outright lies to dictate their lifestyles. They are allergic to truth.
They prefer to live in denial of their own sins and wickedness and often connive and plot against those who are not afraid to speak and publish the facts on the realities in the most populous country in Africa..
The ruling class only use the poor masses as mere pawns for their political schemes and scams.
They sponsor their sycophants and goons and deprive the honest citizens of regular income since they control the political economy of the country. That is why you see criminals and murderers are now government contractors with contracts worth millions of dollars so that they can have surplus money and power to continue their crimes and evils. Then once they contribute and donate large sums of money and expensive gifts to the pastors and bishops of the churches, they are blessed to continue their sins and crimes ad infinitum. Once you criticize them, their fake and hypocritical pastors and bishops are quick to defend them  with quotes from the Holy Bible they misinterpret to deceive and mislead the ignorant masses.
"Judge not and you will not be judged!"
"All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God!"
"Let anyone who has no sin cast the first stone!"
"Judgement belongs to God!"
With all these quotes, they misinterpret and use out of context they have fooled the ignorant masses of Nigeria for decades to demobilize them and turn them into the pawns and zombies of their paymasters in the corridors of power.
 They spend billions on building gigantic and magnificent churches while there are still many poor members among their congregants left homeless and impoverished on the streets and in uncompleted buildings.
They misappropriate the allocations meant for public schools and hospitals and spend them on building their own private schools and private universities and private hospitals where the poor massed they have cheated, deprived, exploited and robbed cannot afford the exorbitant school fees and medical bills.
They think their reign of impunity has no end.

Nigeria is a land of great opportunities and great possibilities. But the corrupt and incompetent politicians ruling Nigeria would prefer the majority of the masses to give up their ambitions and become mere pawns in their political power struggle.
The sooner the youths refuse to be used and dumped by these political contractors, the better they would be able to excel and unite and achieve the goals of their own dreams in the nation building of a New Nigeria.

We are bigger than any political party.
Our destinies are not in the hands of these evil and wicked politicians and their contractors from the Niger Delta to Abuja.
Our destines are in our own hands to build a New Nigeria for our common good.

There are over 127 million Nigerians with mobile phones and tablets and these tools are enough for us for mass communication; for the social community mobilization and sensitization of the masses for socioeconomic and sociopolitical empowerment of the majority to put an end to the manipulation and exploitation of the masses by the evil and wicked ruling class from the Niger Delta to Abuja.
We must put an end to the divide and rule tactics of the political oligarchy of the ruling class.

The cartelization of political leadership formed the political mafia in power in Nigeria and the members are only contesting and fighting over power to control the political economy of Nigeria and they don't give a damn about the majority of voters they cheat and maltreat in their greed for power. They are fighting over their monopoly of oil blocs and mega contracts and not for security and welfare of Nigerians.
