State of the Nation

Am making this posting in an angry and sombre mood. Nigeria is now in a very sorry state and the fearful thing is that it is still getting worse everyday. The country is now at a standstill! Power is non-existent, armed bandits has taken over our highways and creeks, residences! Food has gone out of the reach of the common man.

We are daily confronted with the tales of woes and sorrow from fellow country men which has failed so far to touch our so called leaders (if they can be called that). What we hear daily from them is the award of big (always) inflated contracts for projects that never materializes or be of benefit to the masses.

There has been calls for a Revolution to take place in this country from some quarters and I agree wholeheartedly with this line of thought albeit a non-violent one. Yes, Non-violent Revolution is possible. I think its time the masses show this our (un)elected leaders thatt enough is enough.
Remember former USSR, Cuba, Ghana (though not support of that type). The list is endless.
As the saying goes 'if the poor does not sleep, the rich wont also see sleep'.
