This morning, I went to my commuication network provider and my bank for services. They both had no networks for more than four hours. In homes, there is either a power grid failure or no network to print receipts for electricity units purchased. Meanwhile we are not in typical war environment where missiles have ripped apart our social amenities.One can better imagine how many Nigerians are trapped in the frustration of ‘no network malaise’ across the nation.
Asides the litany of public holidays, corruption, lack of industrial culture, these multitudes of ‘no network’ is becoming worrisome and our economy and silently messing up the health of our people by installment. Seemingly, we are in a season of anomie, insecurity and uncertainties plagueing the nation.
The rail project which is the flagship infrastructural development of this administration has been tainted by the Kaduna-Abuja rail line bombing and getting passengers stranded at least twice in the last six months because of insufficient fuel in transit.
I am afraid Nigeria is now like a broken glass held together by epoxy. If handed over like this to the next administration in 2023, the next President will sweat without end.It is on this note parties should for once, tarry a while and ask, if my party wins the 2023 elections, with these myriads of challenges, how would we deliver on our mandates? It is when this question is objectively answered by all stakeholders that parties would work not to compound the malaise of ‘no network’ with the usual sabotage of the electoral and security systems for a future gain like they did in the past.
The dark clouds over this nation is getting thicker. When the acid rain shall fall, God forbid, there shall be no hidden haven for anyone. Not even the rich. Think about it. It is for this reason I call on all good Nigerians to please ensure that we elect visionary and selfless patriotic leadership 2023.
Grace and peace!!!
