The Real Terror Of The Nigerian Nation
Often time, i reason if The so called Boko-Haram insurgent, The Armed-robbers, The Cultist, The Kidnappers etc are the real terrors terrorising the Nigerian nation, but i've come to realisation that these group of people aren't the real terror in the real sense. The real terror are the people who sheepishly sold us to the whitemen to be used as slaves in exchange for worthless treasure not the robbers.
The real terror are the people who are so bent on amalgamating the Northern and Southern protectorate in 1914 without negotiating the modalities of co-habitation, not the Boko-haram.
The real terrors are the who killed, maimed, and committed all kind of felony including arson in other to take over power from a sitting heads of state not the Cultist.
The real terror are the people who created an atmosphere that led to the civil war of 1967-1970 in which more than 6-million promising souls perished and many valuable properties worth billion of dollars destroyed not the robbers.
The real terrors are the people who damaged and dampened our image in the international community and who useless our status of being 'Giant of Africa' not the Boko-haram.
The real terrors are the people who looted,loots and are still looting our treasury not the Robbers.
The real terrors are the people who lavished so much on self, people who used and are still using 25% of the overheads of our budget for their personal servicing not the Boko-haram.
The real terrors are the people who sit in the FCT and state assemblies, making laws for the poor masses while they never abide by the law themselves not the Cultist.
The real terror are the people who granted state pardon to an international thief and corrupt elder statesmen not the Robbers.
The real terror are the people who removed fuel subsidy promising better-life aftermaths but never fulfilling them not the Boko-haram. The real terrors are the people who plundered us more and more into severe and abject poverty making us scramble on a paltry less than one-dollar per day not the Robbers.
The real terror are people who increased the cost of tertiary education pegging it at a whooping #250,000 when during their days, they were served with almost tuition free education at all levels including an advancement for scholarship(free of charge) not the Cultist.
The real terrors are the people who refuse to give us electricity, portable water, good motorable roads, habitable shelters etc not the Kidnappers.
The real terror are the people who created and are still creating an atmosphere where corruption, tribalism, Nepotism, hooliganism, insurgency, terrorism and all vices thrives not the Boko-haram. The real terror are our Leaders(i mean Nigerian leaders) not the Boko-haram, not the Arm-Robbers, not the Cultists etc. These group are only a by-product of a failing system, an insensitive government, a selfish and self-centred leaders.
However, i look forward to a day when a jerry Rawling will stand-up and say enough is enough......Temitope Samuel(08134442675)
