Nigeria is a fraudulent country and so is its political class. There is nothing good about Nigeria except the fact that they have the mastery of practicing corruption. Nigerian politicians are ready to go extra miles in pursuit of monetary wealth including selling their birth-right.
The Nigerian government claims to be involved in democratic governance but her actions and conducts goes in contrary to this claim. The government only pleases itself even if it means going against its own constitutional provisions while the general masses that voted them into office, suffer their dint of incompetence, corruption, and hardship in the country.
The truth is that most of these politicians occupying public offices are only there for their selfish interests. This also includes the activities of the senators and their counterparts at the House of Representatives. Our regional representatives at the National Assembly do not care about the people they claim to be representing. Some of them feel they have no business with their constituents and then neglect them entirely until when it’s time for another round of elections. That would be the only period they return home to canvas for votes.
Youths in Nigeria who ought to be the leaders of tomorrow are used as political thugs and dumped to continue suffering immediately after the election while the political actors are only after their ambition, interests and that of their family members whom they occasionally fly abroad to acquire good education and medical care.
These senators and house of rep members do not want the status quo challenged. They would not mind keeping the people in penury and suffering while they continue benefitting from the ills of the society.
According to Professor Itse Sagay, the chairman presidential advisory committee on corruption, Nigerian senators earns not less than twenty nine million naira monthly, three billion naira annually, including allowances to everything they do such as newspaper allowance, wardrobe allowance, accommodation allowance, furniture allowance, vehicle allowance, etc, while thousands of unemployed youths who are also graduates that served the country are languishing in penury and hardship while Nigeria is reputed to be one of the richest countries of the world.
Since we have got nobody to speak for us and our future not guaranteed in Nigeria, we are here to speak for ourselves, saying that all we want is the total restoration of the Biafran nation. There is no hope for us in the British contraption called Nigeria.
