We must tell ourselves the truth and accept the truth about Nigeria if we must get the country out of the dungeon.
The quagmire is not that of APC or PDP, Jonathan or Buhari. We are in a systemic, institutional, moral and social mess.
This whole mess started/progressed from the point of change of guard from the colonial masters to the fathers of the nation.
Nigeria was birthed in the pen of corruption and it started it’s life from there. Nobody said and/or did anything about the corrupt seedlings rooted around the foundation.
Official malfeasance in high public office was treated with levity and impunity, and it grew. High public officials continued to depredate national wealth for personal/family benefits.
Hear this: If corrupt practices are not seen to be adequately punished, and those involved seen to be jailed and deprived of their loots, then Nigeria will eventually become “dysgenic”. Indeed, Nigeria is already in a dystopian state of existence.
The time is ripe for all true progressive forces synergize their capacities and lay siege on all those that enriched themselves and families with public wealth.
However, the fundamental/continuous drive of all true progressive groups should line up with the posit of Simon Johnson which states that, “Countries rise when they put in place the right pro-growth political institutions which must ensure they don’t fail to adapt or resist ossification”.
