Ignorance is Destroying More Lives in Nigeria Than Corruption and Terrorism
Ignorance is destroying more lives in Nigeria than corruption and terrorism.
The ruling class will continue to cheat and exploit the poor masses who have become willing pawns in the political chess of Nigerian political rulers.
The masses know how to make more noise than sense.
They attack themselves from the street to the internet over their political support for or against political office holders who are power greedy title chasers and not nation builders.
When the cookie crumbles, the members of the ruling class , their families and beneficiaries will abandon the masses and will only return after the political chaos.
Fools die for politicians.
Whilst people were attacking themselves over APC and PDP, none of the political leaders and members of their families joined the political protests and riots on the streets. But they later came out to celebrate their political victories and those who lost in the political elections got big compensations of political appointments or multi million dollar government contracts.
Many of them keep their children far away from the masses.
Now, we can see from the latest development on the missing Chibok school girls kidnapped by the Boko Haram terrorists on the night of April 14, 2014, that the political leaders from the former President to the current President, knew the whereabouts of the unfortunate poor girls. But since none of their own daughters had been kidnapped, they abandoned the Chibok school girls and played their bloody politics with the fates of the girls.
Former President Goodluck Jonathan was even smiling and shaking hands with the masqueraded Mama Boko Haram who has now confessed that she has been known as a link to the Boko Haram even before the abduction of the Chibok school girls. And the political rulers lied that they did not know their whereabouts.
