The change mantra, without dissension, has gone beyond it ordinary contextual meaning with the sudden political change in the epoch diary of the West African region of African continent (Nigeria). Nigeria, since her independence on October 1ST 1960 has being under shackle of corruption, crime, terrorism, and seat-tight syndrome by the callous, myopic and sans visionary leaders as her pilots.
Corruption, without debate is the fatty canker worm that has eaten deep all sectors of Nigeria’s economy as religious organisations are not left untouched. Also, corruption has opened doom gate to accommodate destruction of lives and property, embezzlement of refinery sectors’ fund, pipe vandalism, illegal diversion of fund in banking sectors, cyber crime and lack of qualitative education of which no part of the country is left behind.
Without much ado, failure of the Nigerian government to cater for the citizens and the resources which are meant for citizens as dividend of “ Demo crazy” being embezzled or used for personal purpose could be the cause of Boko Haram agitation and their invasion of some Northern states like (Borno, Kaduna, Jos, Adamawa and FCT, etc.).
Any existing country in the world who suffers from this syndrome (corruption) will witness strike and criminal acts which could lead to mass spread of violence and “Disestablishmentarianism”. Also, corruption are that “ Judases” that house, raping, homosexuality, bisexuality, heterosexuality, genocide, anti ethnicity, and theft.
In addition, corruption is what houses examination malpractices and cultism in various institutions today. Insurgence and crime today is caused by failure of government to proving jobs for Nigerian graduates holding various degrees; which is abuse of human resources “Idle hands are devil’s workshop”.
In conclusion, the drastic solution to these heart-itching social vices affecting the federation is that, stakeholders, government and all states of the federation should work together to providing solution to the following, without being politicized.
1. Creation of jobs and vocational centres to help the masses at large
2. Creation and rehabilitation of hospitals to include cancer center
3. Construction of infrastructure and supply of electricity
4. Recruitment of youths to the various security arms
I hope this laconic argument and alert will be of drastic change for Kwara State, Nigeria, and the world at large.
