The Nigerian Predicament

The greatest Nigerian novelist, Chinua Achebe called it The Trouble With Nigeria. I call it the Nigerian predicament.
The predicament of the intellectually retarded or those suffering from critical illiteracy is that they don't even know that they are intellectually retarded, because they lack the critical intelligence for ratiocination.
 I am saying this from personal experience in working with them. That is why we have widespread incompetence and intellectual ignorance in Corporate Nigeria. That is why we still have primitive elections and we see the legions of unscrupulous poor idiots selling their votes to elect unscrupulous political crooks and rogues.  Everything I wrote about in my book of sociopolitical satire, In the House of Dogs published by Amazon Books confirms the characters and characteristics of these peculiar species of homo sapiens in Nigeria.

Let us pray.
