Your parents prayed till they died, you stepped into their tiny shoes, hoping for a different result…
When some of us say Nigeria is finished, hypocrites hide under political correctness and spiritual visions to call us alarmists and pessimists.
Now let me give you a method to verifying this yourself.
Ask a secondary school teacher (especially those that teach in the rural areas) to help you ask ten random students, (five males and five females) what they will like to become in future.
You will hear it for yourself how 8 in 10 will answer councillor or chairman.
Don’t forget that all 10 already speak in tongue.
That is the future our fathers and their fathers created for us, one that we have equally embraced, to pass on to our kids.
There is no escape.
Your parents prayed till they died, you stepped into their tiny shoes, hoping for a different result — a different NEPA, a different Baba Obo, Uncle Jack, Kovik one-nine, Ojuyobo; a different hospital, a different school, a different this, an improved that.
You do this by closing down your factories and allowing peddlers of superstitions and myths buy them.
You are not serious.
You will not only starve, you will die.
And you know what?
The mistake you call children that you left behind will still tag your obituary with “gratitude to God for A LIFE WELL SPENT”.
