Nigeria's government and politics

19 November 2014, 11:45

Why are issues going on like this in Nigeria? I wonder why Nigerians are still so daft to be convinced by lies at this century. After 100 years of existence, please what has been the outcome? We are still depending on other countries for what we have in the country. We don't believe in ourselves and the government are not helping matters. I wonder how stupid a president could be and he could still declare his interest to contest again after scores are killed. I am not totally surprised since our president could still go dance after Bomb blast. We have enemies and yet we are yet to identify it and we still allow them dictate for us. At least if it something doesn't favour us, I guess we should abandon such a thing.

Why is Nigeria always like this? Now, 2015, Buhari or Jonathan? He can still declare his interest after students are killed and some in the custody of Boko Haram and the Federal gov't is still not able to do something, yet they beg for re-election after failing. He said he's going to end Boko Haram when he comes back, so now, Boko Haram should continue their deals... Since 2009, what has he done? 2011, was he not there? Did he do anything? 1999-2014, what has PDP done to us? Why not just try LP and see what they can do, or APC and see what they can do. If PDP wins Lagos, I am very sure, Lagos will be no better than the worst state in Nigeria. Ekiti is becoming hotter since PDP has done all to see that they win, now they've won presenting a criminal like Fayose.

The constitution doesn't allow an ex-convict to contest, but is the constitution working at all? Omisore, a murderer contesting for Governor's seat? Are you kidding me? Let PDP go and let's have something else. PDP has nothing to offer than poverty and corruption. No one can be better but we should still try others than making the same mistakes every time. What they said yesterday they'll say today and we'll still fall... I laugh tire! Are we that daft? He who makes same mistake twice is the greatest fool.
