From the social media: Are we a nation of wicked and corrupt people?
•Why I don’t agree with some of the assertions in this write-up, I think some of the issues raised in the article are germane and reflective of some of the happenings around us. I, however, still believed that there are still many people who have not corrupted themselves with the filthy lucre and that perhaps may have accounted for the reason we are still standing as a nation. It is our belief that the writer was inspired by the widespread frustration about the country and how things are not working. Nonetheless, we found it amusing and we decided to share it with our dear readers for your beautiful weekend special. #GFDNews
WICKED PEOPLE, WICKED NATION
We are just wicked people. Simple. CBN pumped billions of naira into rice production, and we are big producers now. Yet same Nigerians helped by government to go into rice farming at single-digit interest rate are seizing the opportunity of non-competition from importation to sell at exorbitant price. We are just wicked.
PHCN was sold with clauses that practically make us slaves to the buyers. For government to sever the sales agreement would cost about 3trillion naira. The sellers that accepted such conditions are Nigerians. The buyers who are part of the agreement are Nigerians too. We are just wicked.
Government subsidises petrol consumption for everybody to benefit, but empty vessels would sail to our waters and payment received. At a stage we were paying for ordinary papers as fuel importation. The fake importers and those approving payments are Nigerians. We are just wicked.
Many, shouting about corruption or misgovernance are bitter because they are not part of the game or waiting and praying it would get to their turn. We are just wicked.
Check us out in all facets. The policeman that would kill because of N50.00; the customs officer that would allow fake drugs and ammunition into the country because he has been settled. The exam supervisor that would sell question papers.
The government hospital personnel that would steal drugs and not attend to patients that need those same drugs. The contractor that would collect mobilisation fee and not execute jobs. Some even collect the whole contract money without doing anything. A fellow Nigerian would murder another because of sacrifice for money. We are just wicked.
Nigerians set up IPPIS. Nigerians are on strike for IPPIS. Nigeria suffers.
All the time OUR government… roundly run by Nigerians is blamed in tales …delusion
WICKED PEOPLE, WICKED NATION.
