If I am a Nigerian I will be very worried and troubled at this point in time, because I cannot risk being part of such contraption. If there's anything worth worrying about, that is the state of Nigeria. She has failed and another thing is for her citizen to accept it.

Sometimes when I see the way some people are praying begging God to bless their country and also make the country to be better I will perhaps shake my head and weep for them because they don't actually know what they are doing. Praying to God to bless Nigeria is same as pouring water on a stone, immediately the water touches the stone it drops back on the ground with immediate effect; indicating that the water is not useful. Praying for Nigeria is not useful, because a faulty foundation cannot be amended after the structure has been lifted unless the whole building goes down.

This reminds me of a post I made the other day on my Facebook wall, I read in the quote "calamity upon calamity shall continue to befall Nigeria until they allow the Biafrans to go". The funny part is seeing a Nigerian airing his opinion through my comment box, his words; "God forbid". I made out time to ask him what actually do you want God to forbid here? In reply, he said 'the courses am laying on his country Nigeria", then I replied to him and say "what is the meaning of Nigeria?

In life, the highest poison anybody can give to him/her self is not telling yourself the truth it kills quicker than a missile because it will always make you think that things are right while things are seriously bad. 

Many Nigerians today maybe pretending that there is still hope for Nigeria, some will even go as far as saying that Nigeria is the giant of Africa hahaha who dash monkey banana? You and I know that such is a lie from the pit of hell, Nigeria is African's troubled giant and not just giant of Africa positively the gospel truth about the whole matter is that Nigeria has failed that's why you see they keep on going backward every blessed year.

In 1990-1999 with romance lacking blemish. The truth is that it wasn't all bliss, it was a time of contrasts, despair, and hope, two of Nigeria most dictatorship IBB and Abacha ruled in the 90s and with different versions of iron fists, these were dark times. the ones they called middle class nearly went extinct. The journalist was thrown in jail, politicians, and human rights activist ran into exile, a presidential election was annulled and Ken Saro-Wiwa along with his Ogoni was hung.

This was the decade when HIV/AIDS become real as the great rebel of the 70s and 80s Fela Anikulapo-Kuti succumbed to death. It was the same time Sgt. Rogers went on a politically motivated killing spree and MKO Abiola drank that tea. Generator looks over Nepa and Armed robbers invaded Lagos homes at night.

The 90s was a gloomy decade no doubt NTA was the mouthpiece of the junta and confraternities terrified students, lectures, shutting down universities with their acts of terrorism. Military rule made Nigeria a pariah state.

Ok let's assume that is because two dictatorship was in power then that was the main reason why things were very very bad because I truly understand what it means to have dictator as a leader, but then what happen after those two men finish their tenure respectively Has they be any positive change since then till date? The answer is no. Nigeria has so many problems that have been there right from the day of her creation this is the reasons why I said Nigeria has failed and her citizens should accept it with good faith.

Nigeria cannot find a solution to the problems facing them after 58 years of independent, that is really a sign of failure please just permit to use mango as an example. If I plant a mango as the mango is growing am expecting it to produce some wonderful mango fruits which is the reason why I planted it and after 58 years it did not produce anything what will I say the mango tree has done? I think there is no other better word to use than failure. 

I will exclaim that this mango tree has failed and the next thing I will do is to look for a way to cut it down because it can not give me what I want, this is exactly what am expecting Nigeria to do at this point in time, just allow the Biafrans to go since we have been answering one Nigeria and we have not achieved anything go and let's build a new country, but I know they will not do it because their heart is hidden but in no distance time they shall see what will happen Just watch and see.
