Life condition has not been fair at all for many citizen's in the country. During colonial process, many people where found under this rage of slavery and after the independence of the country in 1960, many thought that this could have been the end of it all. But believe me, as we grow and expand further it definitely shows that plenty of things are still needed to be put in place.
I will not like to lay or portion blames to our past colonial masters because if not for them, I doubt where we could have been by now. But the fact still remains that so many Nigerians are still poor and are slaves in their own country. Now, check the Lagos State lifestyle and see how young boys and girls or youths survive in that region. For a secondary school leaver or drop-out; factory work is the ultimate place that they could work in. And you ask! Who is in control of those factories? The white (men and women). Factory work is their only surviving means. They work from Monday to Saturday, from morning to evening or some do one week day, one week night. The only remaining day that they have left is Sunday for short rest. Guess how much they earn in a month? Maybe 10 000 or 15 000 every month. With this, they might afford one(1) room 'face me, I face you' apartment. They might roughly manage to always buy second hand clothing's, maybe once in two months or month.
The life condition of this people remains the life of poverty and slavery; what they go through from these white men and women who they refers as "Oyibo” is what I call 'modernised slavery'. We are still slaves in our own country. Even most of our people have equally adopted that heartless behaviour thereby over-working their junior staffs simply because of the degrees/qualifications they were been given job with or the tribe or religion they belong. Great country as Nigeria but yet; slavery and poverty is still at a high rate
