I have every right to prove every doubting Thomas that things do work in Nigeria than any another geographical destination in the world. You still doubt? Everything is possible, once you are a Nigerian or resides here, just chase you dream with no or no effort. It must come true now or in fifteen years time. Just take a look at some examples and you agree with me that this nation is getting some where. Forget what the international community is talk about us or the reports we get everyday from the American CNN. This country possess enormous potentials. The world jealous us because they still dream to do what we do.
If you are a Nigerian politician with any political post, you are sure to be rich by hundred folds once you don’t be in opposition. It does matter how you serve the people, but the millions you were able to siphon into accounts abroad. If EFCC probe you tomorrow, just tell them how you meticulously served the people. All your trips abroad are for medical check up, you don’t check up in any Nigerian hospital or a big coffin awaits you. Our hospitals are certified mortuaries. Who will equip or upgrade them? While you go abroad, let the common Nigeria go into the bushes around and gather roots and herbs. After all that’s what our great grand fathers use any time a health malfunction occurs. Why tell me that nothing is possible in Nigeria? Our governors can’t pay the 18, 000 naira minimum wage because the state’s treasury will run dry. Their security votes run in billions of naira, no, that will never empty the treasury. The civil servants will always cry out their eyes before salaries they labored for could be paid. One day, let our governors be owned one month salary and you will surely see that those people we do call your “Excellency” are never better than motor park agboros. They will surely go wild.
It is only in this country that our leaders travel by air. They don’t pass through the death traps called roads. Our leaders only build “air ways”, let we that pass through those road do whatsoever that please us. Even if they do, they pass with jeeps with dinted glasses. So they don’t see how the roads looked like. It is only in this country that our leaders take their children and wards to schools abroad and our schools are left with depilated structures. No functional library or anything that could aid the students to learn. Their children want better education while our children deserve nothing but a certificate to be an okada man or taxi driver after so many years of academic struggles. If you are having a birthday, just call few friends with snacks and drinks, they will wish you happy birthday in your small ghetto. Our leaders don’t celebrate birthdays unless it is done in big hotels of Australia, New York and the rest. It is only in Nigeria that you will see that we have an epileptic power supply, but still give electricity to another country. What a benevolence! If you sue or report your neighbor for disturbing your peace with his generator to the police, of course that’s one hell of a mistake. The police would rather tell you to buy your own generator and face it near your neighbor’s window.
We have refineries in this country, but still import petroleum products. May be our leaders are reserving our crude oil for the future. Our leaders are wise. Second handed goods are contraband, what are tokunbo planes doing up in our air space? The wikileaks have continued to leak how oil was stolen by our supposed leaders and nothing is been done to the defaulters. They walk the streets free men and collect ch(th)ieftaincy titles. You still doubt that in Nigeria impossibility is nothing. It is only in this country that the elections are free and fair unless one party won by landslide victory. It is only in this country that a governor will decide to sack workers, with claim that they are non-indigenes. It is only in this country that bombs are thrown like banger. We are yet to see or hear that the bomb culprits were caught.
In this country, every business thrives. Talk of kidnapping, Armed robbery, yahoo yahoo, trafficking of persons, hawking of human parts, hard drugs trafficking even prostitution. That must have been the reason why the deputy senate president have called for its legalization. Am sure tomorrow, kidnapping would be legalized because the business seemed to be moving on higher pace. Even native doctors and witches have upgraded their status now. They now wear suits and perfumes. Their offices are air-conditioned with laptops connected to the internet. Our pastors prophesy nothing unless dooms. They don’t see any good thing in their vision. That’s why one of them couldn’t see that Nigeria will never qualify for the African cup nations 2012. Even our footballers require prophesy to know how they fair in any football match apologies to the “Osaze’s doctrine”. It is only in this country that human rights are thrown in the gutters. Once you are rich and got connection to the corridors of power, you do anything you like. None will question you. You have bought everybody like groundnuts. Who dares you when you move through the high way with a vehicle with no number plates and driving without seat belt in a more accelerated speed. Let the road safety officials break their heads because you will surely knock them into the bush. Beat an ordinary man to stupor, you are innocent.
Our police block the high ways and extort from motorists twenty naira on daily basis. They see okada men as animals. It is only in this country that armed robbers would attack you, call the police and you be shocked when they ask what sort of guns the hoodlums were having. Who wants to die? If you can challenge the devils, the police is willing to arm you with any available rifle. If you are still doubting that nothing is working in Nigeria, you better have a rethink and know that this nation is getting somewhere.
