We live in an environment where a majority of the electorates and political party men see politics as a short path to quick riches .

This same electorates and party chieftains, who will daily lament about the absence of the dividends of democracy at most levels and arms of governance are the same folks, who will go to extreme ends to extort monies from political office aspirants and candidates for elections.

From campaign for Primaries to securing the respective parties nominations to the general elections proper, some of these same greedy folks who complain that the politicians have failed them, will mount diverse criminal and exploitative road blocks to extort tens and hundreds of millions of naira from those seeking for political offices. This is a very tragic commentary about our political and governance situations today in Nigeria .

Nigerian in My heart of hearts

Obasanjos letter to Buhari my view


My little knowledge about the political space in Nigeria taught me how greed , gluttony, avarice and wickedness amongst a vast majority of the so called public opinion molders and political leaders have contributed to keep Nigeria in very retrogressive state. 


The monies we spent over two years during those periods would have comfortably been adequate to built and furnish some substantial number of units of decent apartments in new owerri capital territory or even set up cottage factories .

So, the nagging question is .... What do we do to make public and political offices/positions less attractive ? What do we do to enlighten our people on the dangers of stomach infrastructure driven /led politics?

We need to go back to the 1960 Federal and Regional constitutions in Nigeria. We need to make political offices a part time thing with less perks and appurtenances .

Come 2019, everyone must be a volunteer and contribute his or her own mite for us to redeem our land. If you are not okay with this best normal development, one can stick with the old order and then come back to continue lamentation till 2023 .
God help us!
