Breaking up Nigeria will not lead to making up Nigeria
By Ejike Okpa
POLITICS DIGEST- Nigerians are programmed in such a way that at their village levels they are unable to manage their own affairs.
At the tribal levels, the inherent intra squabbles are such that they are willing to self destruct.
To restructure Nigeria to function better is NOT to physically break her up but to fashion government with attendant governance to promote and protect the Commonwealth.
Nigerians are easily predisposed when in office to act like PIMPs, and have NO boundaries as to what is private versus public.
Make every family unit in Nigeria a country and the attitude will continue.
A constitution no matter HOW well crafted and worded will not work itself until the human beings commit to culture of public service not personal service.
Swap US constitution with that of Nigeria, and the hue and cries will continue.
Hone or abroad there are hardly “New and Improved” clan of Nigerians to offer hope for Nigeria.
That Nigerian have education does not often differentiate them from indulging in effete traditional ways that are counter productive to what they wish for.
Nigerians’ inability to mentally migrate from tiertary to higher ways to get the best for and from their collective existence is like pulling teeth with toothpicks. Commendable efforts but nothing gets pulled.
A doomed nation chasing her tail in constant spin.
I stand to be proven wrong as you chew on this.
