Ambassadors of poverty in Nigeria

25 November 2014, 10:54 Prince Olamond David Aduroja

Nigeria as a country whose socio-cultural and political activities has been bumpy ride for its masses needs from cor-leaders whom I tag "Ambassadors of Poverty and Illiteracy." The country needs a revolution.

Nigeria's Ambassadors of poverty and high level of illiteracy are the corrupt political and economic leaders whose heads are abroad and their anuses at home. Saddles on their official seat they embezzle the nation's wealth without any compunction.

Ambassadors of poverty are the political elite in-rancorous battle of supremacy for power. In their air-conditioned chambers and exotic cars they care nothing about how the poor and orphans survive on daily bases. 

Ambassador of poverty keep promising sound education for the nation's children, employment for the youths, yet they brutalize the life of their future leaders.They have bastardized the educational and economical prestige that our freedom fighters built in the past.Profuse promises, wonderful budgets and plans are yet to be fulfilled. Nigeria's ambassadors of poverty are without motive, without productive vision. Their actions reduce the glorious expectations of the citizens to nothing. But in a way, ambassadors of poverty are all of us, whose actions jeopardize the growth and development of our beloved country. We steal because of what we want to achieve at all cost and bargain away our conscience in the market place under the weight of poverty to assuage our hunger.

Nigeria is a glorious land, filled with “honey”, good soil and enterprising people. Let's join hands to make our country greater because it is our home.

God bless Nigeria!!!
