Firstly, Nigeria is corrupt; obviously, corruption is in every country but in the zoo called Nigeria it has eaten deep into the fiber of its existence, it has even been identified as a culture it is really appalling, to say the least as a parent in Nigeria would you be proud enough to say that the culture you are handing over to your future generation is corruption? That is what Nigerians are doing right now and is really a shame another great sign of failure.

The news is filled with corrupt politicians who want to outsmart each other in being the most corrupt, on a daily basis we hear of how public officials are buying million-dollar mansions and accumulating stolen public funds in financial establishments abroad.

Secondly, the Increment of crime and terrorism has negatively affected the country, investors find it hard and very difficult to do business in the country due to security challenges in Nigerian, committing crime is now a tradition in Nigeria, you are given a bigger political position based on your experience in stealing and other crimes, sponsors of terrorist groups in Nigeria win elections, Boko Haram has taken over so many villages in the northern part of the zoo called Nigeria. Different violent activities such as bombings, Kidnapping, remains a daily feature of the news as a result, the global peace index of 2016, has classified Nigeria as 4th country in the world with the highest level of death as a result of the conflict.

Thirdly, unavailability of job opportunities has done 40% of the sickness. Every year, about two hundred thousand (200,000) students graduate from different universities across the country but most of them are not able to find a good job. According to the official Nigeria statistics, 38 percent of those under 24 are unemployed, but the world bank evaluates this numbers to be closer to 80% in March 2014 sixteen people were killed in a stampede that occurred when 500,000 desperate job-seekers were struggling to apply for about 5,000 vacancies in the immigration services of Nigeria.

Many Nigerian graduates today are now seen all over the places riding Keke nappe, Okada, some are even doing sells boy and sells girl while some engage themselves in stealing and kidnapping just to earn a living and pay their bills. remember we are talking about graduates with certificates, is that not a sign of failure after good 58 years of independence?

Fourthly, The system of education in this zoo called Nigeria is in shambles. The quality of education materials used in most institutions are decades old and not up to the par with modern standards. Many of the facilities for teaching students are either old or unavoidable absent, hence most lectures are mostly theoretically based with little practice. At the end of the day, these poorly baked graduates cannot compete or perform adequately in the labor market.

Corruption and bribery is also a growing culture in the educational sector, From the top management to the non-teaching staff bribing and corruption has become the leading way to pass exams or be successful in school.

These are some of the problems that have been in the root of the zoo called Nigeria right from her creation it did not start today, if Nigeria as country cannot find a solution to this problems after 58 years of being independent that simply mean that Nigeria has failed, in other civilized countries they get better and better as they grow they look back at those areas where they have not done well and get them corrected which will automatically take them to a greater Hight, but in the zoo called Nigeria that is not the case instead they keep on getting Worsened by the day, Nigeria is not even stagnant am very sure of that rather Nigeria is dead.

Nigeria has failed and has nothing to offer again.
