Naija for lyfe(2)

Happy Belated Birthday Nigeria, I am proud to be a citizen but I know we have work to do...
Please stop the blame game, it sucks...

I am not impressed and I know that many of the Nigerians home and abroad feel the same way. Why,When and how did we get to this point? Divorce is rife,electricity or lack of it is high and bribery and corruption has increased geometrically!
Why are we like this,my heart aches for Nigeria and it hurts.
We don't care about each other,it's a dog eat dog world out there.
Politicians promise heaven and earth only to get to the seat of power to loot all they can get out of the nations purse.

When two elephants fight,the grass suffers...and so it has been with ASUU and the government with the students bearing the brunt of it all.
We criticize the government but we are not ready to do right ourselves.
The government goes on and on about keeping the law and abiding by the rules,but they kill it themselves...question is are we falling into a state of anarchy...

There's a conspiracy theory behind every I heard that the ASUU strike is actually as a result of some top dogs wanting to buy some notable federal schools in Nigeria...for their own selfish gains might I add?...Can somebody confirm if this is true or false!!!

The legal system is corrupt to the marrow; a friend said the legal system is so corrupt that bribery is rife,to submit a document entails bribing the bailiff to the judge. This same people are the ones who will judge an armed robber and make him go free while they condemn the innocent to death!!!...tell me what do you call that...another double standard.
Hear me...The innocent blood you've shed through the years are crying out for either repent and obtain God's forgiveness and Mercy or get the disgrace coming to you.

Why are we like this?how did we get here?
The effry* of it all...what makes it okay for you to say,do,have and not okay for me to say,do or have the same!!!

Until we are sick and tired of being sick and tired collectively,I'm afraid it may just be like this for a while.

To the hard hearted top guns who can't afford to have a new Nigeria at the moment due to the fact that a new organised Nigeria means loss of power and money to them...I'm afraid Sir/Ma, time is running out on you...get LEGIT or DIE!!!

Nigeria is not for you alone,it is for us all...we want a renewed and reformed Nigeria, a Nigeria where talk is not cheap i.e people practice what they preach... where leaders don't just speak for the camera, but also carry out,what they've said.
A Nigeria where the do as I say and not as I do rule doesn't apply. A Nigeria where the citizens believe so much in the Nation that they are willing to protect the nation...Right now, we don't have it but as battered as my hope and my faith in Nigeria is, it still stands.


*Effry...Swear word but toned down!!!

Happy Independence day in arrears. The ASUU story, I cant talk again. It has become part of the university curriculum...


"We criticize the government but we are not ready to do right ourselves."

"Get Legit or Die"

I definitely felt this post, I will leave it at that and say thank you for sharing. I am adding this to the list of other Independence day related posts.

Take care, babe.
