Discussing Nigeria, analyzing our challenges and problems seem not to be very attractive or let’s say neither does it arouse your thinking or get you excited about the issues that other nations hold dear. You can say that the socio-political issues of Nigeria are not intellectual enough, neither are they thought-provoking and this can be attributed to a politics that has not only become crude or lost touch of global realities but equally overshadowed good governance. Nigeria is a mess of many things and if you try to think or be intelligent about issues, you will only look foolish in the face of animalistic tendencies of many years that have sadly found its way into the 21stcentury.
The political leadership and elite class have succeeded in making Nigeria and Nigerians less intelligent by riding on us and making us feel that they are doing us a favour at every point in time.
