The beginning of the end

20 March 2015, 10:28 Samuel Aladinrin

The political activities in Nigeria presently is reminiscent of a popular movie that has been watched over the years. There is hatred and bitterness among the political actors and their supporters. Alhaji Waziri Ibrahim (GNPP) of blessed memory preached politics without bitterness. He will be amazed to see the degree of bitterness in the politics of today. There is serious threat to peace in Nigeria.

The threat of violence is very  thick  in the air in Lagos, Oyo, Rivers, Kano name it. The Boko Haram is seen as a threat to peace and stability in Nigeria. Yet a more sinister threat to peace and stability is the political war of attrition and hatred between the players. Unguarded statements that can ignite violence are uttered without check. We have experienced this situation before in the political history of our nation.

It is the beginning of the end of another era. Right from the first military coup of 1966, the politicians are always the onces giving invitation to the military for a takeover of  government. The stage is set, we have pass through this road before. I can recognise the sign posts along the way. It is the beginning of the end. The political class has missed it again, there is serious injustice and mismanagement of the nation.

Corruption is at an unthinkable height, we have never had it so bad in Nigeria. Corruption has been institutionised, no section of Nigeria is free from corruption; churches, mosques, labour unions, the media etc. People who are suppose to be in jail are in government and latislating for us. There  are lots of  disappointments to Nigerians. Human right activists, religious leaders, traditional fathers, labour unions, journalists have all disappointed us. Money have changed hands to make many deny what they profess and belief. Some radio and TV stations make you nauseating by tunning to the station.The journalists have thrown away professionalism and its ethics.

The masses of Nigeria are not even asking for too much, give them uninterupted supply of electricity, good water, affordable health care, good transportation system and roads,affordable housing, pay workers and pensioners their dues on time.

There are  backlogs of salaries of up to six months in some states. Haba! Pensioners are dying because they cannot afford to buy their medications. In a country that is flowing with milk and honey.

There are threats within the polity that can truncate this Democracy.The call for the removal of INEC chairman Jega  is one  thing that if carried out under any guise may cause  unimaginable crises that may be the beginning of the end.

Secondly, if the forthcoming election is again postponed,it will be like sitting on a keg of gun powder and lighting a cigarette. Things are already falling apart and the centre cannot hold. The card reader to be or not to be, elections to hold or not hold, Jega to go or not to go, all point to the beginning of the end of this Democratic era.
