#Nigeria….. Fool @ 51???


Nigeria @ 50…..

Nb:- This was written a year ago…

It’s often well said that a fool @40, is a fool forever…..
!t later became a fool @ 18 is a fool forever…
Whichever1 it might be, what do u say of a fool @50???

They Said in 2010, all will be well, but now, we thinking If all can be good in 2050…
Giant of Africa… We all keep saying that, but where will u rank South-Africa, or Ghana…
Say the Name Nigeria to any1 on the street and the response is something of either a shrug or acceptance of the absurd state of living….

The labor of our heroes past
Shall never be in vain
If only the founding father of this ‘Great’ Nation can see how it all is now, I wonder if they would have fought 4 independency….

It’s a different thing to be under a colonial master and it’s another thing to be under the shadow of our own people…
But is there really any difference…
In both situ, the weak are oppressed…
And the multitude are afraid to protest…

This damage did not just start…
Nigeria ate the forbidden fruit when She discovered Crude Oil…
Greed erupted with discovery of oil
Don’t blame them, If a Child who is used to little is given something large,
We know how the end result ll be…
Had we jut stuck to Agriculture, It would av been a different story 2day…

Just look at us.
Everything is backwards.
Everything is awkward.
Doctors destroy health,
Lawyers murder justice,
Universities destroy knowledge,
Governments destroy freedom,
The major media destroy information…
And so on 2 mention a few…

Craving!!!
Of wanton lusting…
Greed pitted against reason…
And conscience lost to treachery…
This best describes Nigeria…

It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.
Every1 is expecting a change…
And yet, every1 is afraid to start the change…
It can all start with us…

A frnd asked me ‘When will it get better’???
I told him it can’t start with this generation of ours…
Children of 2day, Leaders of tomorrow….
A teenager who is already into Cyber Crimes and every other fast means of making money,
Will definitely nt think twice b4 taking his own share of the National treasure or National Cake as it is known…
Who then are we looking 4wrd 2 as Leaders of tomorrow!!!

What lies behind us and what lies before us are small matters compared to what lies within us.
Not until we tackle d greed in us, and stop blaming the leaders above can Nigeria progress…
Well, it all dies down to prayer and good deed…

God bless Nigeria…
If only i mean that the way an American means it whenever he says God bless America…..
God bless Nigeria!!!
