The Siege

The Siege

At the end of the day, an average Nigerian will not appreciate the value of money because of the mind bogging figures we hear everyday.

This is the shame if a nation. Before I am crucified, its not a PDP or APC thing. It has become a Nigerian thing to steal from whoever employs you.
Your family and church member expects you to be financially buoyant irrespective of what you do, your salary and whatever.

When you sleep in the night hungry and wake up with a Siena and a plot of land in Magodo, the shout of its the Lords doing rents the air.
When will this change? When will be become satisfied with what we have?
I think the government and leadership has a lot to do about this.
When will they begin to put enduring policies in place.
Policies with a human face. Affordable housing backed with mortgage. Modern transportation and educational policies that will not make you steal before you send your children to school.
Power sector reforms that will not make people steal to buy generators or bust pipeline.
I have come to realise that people go after money with the thinking that it will solve their problems but they DONT even know what to do with this money(s).
This is why you DONT see Nigerians run enduring business because they only live for now.
I can bet that out of the biggest 20 businesses in Nigeria, maybe we'll get 5 or 8 owned by Nigerians and the sad fact is you can count 50 Nigerians who made 50 billion naira in the last regime.

The question is, what do they do with the money they stole?
The answer is nothing.
