Poor institution in the country

10 September 2014, 08:39 Jibunor George Chuks

Our dear country has remained at the state of stagnation. When I was a child, all that I have heard is that the youths are the future and the leaders of tomorrow. Will tomorrow ever come? Yes it must come, but tomorrow will never end.

All the institutions in the country are dead and not functional. The youths of this country have the most populated percent in the country but still the system and the constitutional right of the youths have been hijacked by the government of the country. The political system is only for the old frustrated men and women who have designed the constitution to suite their shear infected heart of greed.

We are not lacking manpower in the country but what we lack are poor institutions; this is why this country will remain the way it is. People in power are only interested to invest in the institution where they can benefit from. Refinery have been the issue of the rich politicians and the poor masses. They have refused to make refinery functional because that's exactly where they suck from. Rotating of power is all their tactics.

Already failed governors from different states are all warming up for the forth coming election to buy their way to the senate. Quote this! Any successful governor have no reason to go for the senate. The criminals go there to hide from the evils they committed during their tenure as governors. For the past 10years, some set of people have been in the senate for their own interest but not for the country. No one voted them in but they always have a way to get in. Things can not work, where only the olds are the ones making decisions. This is a wake-up call for all the youths. God bless us.
