Nigeria, a hitherto blessed nation with abundant natural resources is largely underdevelped because of embezzlement of public funds, misgovernance and maladministration by public office holders.
The underdeveloped nature of Nigeria is unacceptable to some of us. Some people who have taken it upon themselves to advocate for good governance, justice, equity and fairness do so at their own peril. Advocating for leaders to do the right thing is risky in our clime because those in government are allergic to persons calling attention to their failings.
Fela sang “suffering and smiling” on November 5, 2021. Since that time, the sufferings have been increasing but the smiling is receeding as the years rolled by.
Nigerians deserve the best of democratic dividends and good governance, which include good roads, potable water, efficient educational and Healthcare systems, 24/7 energy supply, economic and political freedoms, affordable food and housing, etc.
Sadly, because of tribal and religious sentiments, the same people pauperized by the actions of the ruling few, would use their data to be abusing those advocating for freedom from poverty, transparency and accountability in governance. No be juju be that?
