The devilish behaviour of Nigerian politicians

07 August 2014, 10:10 Mudassir Mohammad Mafara

I always mourn silently whenever I remembered the ignorance of our people (Nigerians), I use to ask myself "when are these people going to understand the devilish behaviours of our politicians?" But the question remained unanswered, out of 100 politicians of nowadays one would hardly find 5 who have the heart of executing projects that will bring about socio-economic development in our dear country Nigeria.

75 per cent of them employed corruption, embezzlement of public fund, sexploitation and squandermania as their daily businesses. They always tried to see to the achievement of their selfish interest by any means possible, they employed the theories of Niccolo Machievelli. Nepotism and tribalism became the order of the day, gone are those days when everything would be done according to laws and decrees.

It has gotten to an extent that our politicians engineered terrorism as a way of disuniting common men, they made us blaming our country mates who are not practicing the same religion or cultural tribe with us responsible for everyday insurgency. Sometimes they would cause religious chaos in order to crumble the trust we had for each other thereby using this opportunity to squander and conquer our treasury while we are busy killing each other everyday. In spite of all this menace caused by our own so called politicians, some of us are still yearning irrationally for more of their devastating leadership. It is pity to see a Nigerian youth in political thuggery campaigning for politician that would dump him till another four years when the time of another election comes.

Sincerely, let us not succumb, we have to wake up and fight for the future of this country disregarding our ethnic or religious differences. Truly, those politicians who thought bombing, gunning or slaying innocent lives would bring victory to their selfish gains, would be gradually judged accordingly on the day of ressurection. May the almighty bless our nation and unite us.
