Wackie And Die: Government House is not Retirement Home


Change of entitlement mentality must start from the grassroots all the way to the top. If youths want a lasting impact in the country, especially in a presidential system, they have to get involved at the grassroots level shaping and wrestling primaries away from pillagers. Use local universities as staging grounds. Changes a president can make without support in both houses at the federal and states levels is limited, a benevolent dictatorship can be impeded or impeached. Jungle justice shows how angry you are n=but on the wrong types of folks. The cry of the onye oshi,ole and Barawo may be getting louder. It is just a start. Not only do youths have to vote, but youth must also watch out for those cunning politicians hijacking the crowd by paying them to shout OLE. The story of the robbers disappearing into the crowd that is pursuing them, only to push someone else in front as the Barawo has been told and witnessed, but not enough to draw caution.

It is not sufficient to vote out the looters and replace them with the youths. Those youths must demonstrate how they are different from the likes of former speakers Bankole that just wanted an opportunity to chop, However, the youths have less entrenched sense of entitlement, baggage of Godfathers, born to rule mentality, parties of kickbacks and resource allotments or king markers .if we can really start afresh, youths will have opportunities to change mentality.

Spent old politicians without vigour and vitality need to go retirement home. Account for past previous achievement in the first place, after many false starts. They all wrecked the economy while celebrating false sense grandeur with little accomplished. We are so poor a country, yet politicians cancel contracts and pad up the costs of new ones without any consequences.

Right in our face, their projects of roads, bridges or hospitals are the world most extravagant.

So who ha the ethnic group leadership help, indeed, the whole country is a mess, look at the environmental disaster in Niger Delta and the rate of poverty in North- West and East and tell us what their leadership have accomplished to alleviate people’s needs above subsistence living and poverty is still concentrated in the making a living and poverty is still concentrated in the north while the number of oil millionaires claiming arduous digging for oil increased in the North and South. We are already witnessing thugs, riffraff and political jobbers maiming one another or snatching boxes in the party primaries. This is not only to intimidate rivals and youths competing for the positions. This was how all militia started before they turned to a religious and political terrorist that could no longer be controlled by their sponsors. Boko haram was put on a steroid to make Jonathan’s reign ungovernable. It came back to haunt us all.

Ironically, it is the turn of Fulani herdsmen to make   Buhari reign ungovernable. If Jonathan could not control the Fulani herdsmen, he would get the same change that kicked Jonathan out. Indeed the recycling of sick old Politian’s by cabals that only care about self-interest, Devoid their leader of control over their cabinet. Lack of peace and security is not conducive for economic growth or civilized activity Buhari saw, hear and learn nothing from Jonathan change?. It was embarrassing that Buharia, in front of the president of United States that has more intelligence on the activity of Fulani herdsmen than him, said these were Libyan terrorists and Fulani herdsmen than him, said these were Libyan terrorists and Fulani herdsmen carry AK47 instead of confronting Fulani herdsmen mayhem head-on, he was giving excesses for the destruction of life and properties as historical events. He became an apologist for perpetrators of havoc on innocent folks. So historical atrocities must continue?.

Let us face it, those retarding the growth of African countries today are Africans. It is a shame that we are still looking for one successful African country that can manage their country instead of looking for the biggest kickback to declare our resources open to all corners for abuse. They pay us meagerly for our land and resources, take back the money in exchange for arms to suppress dissents or start more civil wars’

Not comfortable anywhere. Youth jump from one frying pan inside one African country into the fire outside. Most African countries got their independence about fifty years ago. While the number of industrial, housing and agribusiness have not kept pace with population. Indeed, the vision of the leadership that fought vigorously for independence as youths has been shattered, replaced by vagabonds that facilitated rapacious rape of Africa’s resources and people. The next election in Nigeria will determine if the youths that make up sixty per cent of the most African population will determine Africa’s future with votes they can get, not only from the cohorts but also from the grassroots that must be convinced that business, as usual, is working against their interest and future generations. It is not enough to very that parents are losing their children and grandchildren to foreign countries and cultures: do something about it at home. Canada has joined many countries that have had enough of Nigerians. The projection is that by 2050, there may be more people in Nigeria than the European Union, Actually, immigration has become the bogey needed across the European and American countries to scare voters. Any country that does not take a hard line against immigrants will have its governments changed. Asian countries have always been hostile to immigrants, even from Asian countries. Nigeria is too blessed with brains to be stuck with so many bad leadership, If we can only apply those brains to legal productive enterprises instead of crowding out political process as the only way to success, other avenues would be discovered. Brains that should be busy competing with youths worldwide are been wasted in unproductive and defeated endeavours across the world. There is nothing wrong with attracting foreign investments, as long as you understand that you get what you negotiate, not what you deserve. Look like the slave trade, it is very doubtful if these renege politicians understand the art of negotiations as they are still exchanging uranium, gold, cobalt, and diamond for mirrors exercising their consumer mentality, Not only must we become producers, we must have affordable prices to compete and patronize our own goods
