Title: WHAT IS NIGERIA'S BIGGEST PROBLEM?
Post by: furtune on May 02, 2008, 03:14:47 PM
SIR: What is Nigeria's biggest problem? This is the question my son asked me on a beautiful morning, April 12, 2008 after breakfast in Springfield, PA. He promptly followed this question with another, even before I answered the first. "Well dad, if you were the Nigerian president what would you do?"

This line of questioning, discussion, debates, a huge arguments on politics, race, history, education, religion - you name it, we battle over it - is commonplace in our home. But for whatever reason, instead of launching into the usual diatribe of possible flawed but well meaning reasoning, I actually paused for thought. My mind wandered, as I recollected the many discussions I had with countless Nigerians at home in Nigeira and in far away places in divergent circumstances and settings about what ails Nigeria.

In the opinions of most Nigerians I have encountered, the issues the country faces are those of oil, corruption, religion, ethnicity, infrastructure, poverty, hunger, disease, brain drain, civil liberties, etc. so with very broad strokes I pigeonholed all the people I have had discussions with into three groups. Group one the naysayers. They've lost faith and believe the problems are so entrenched in the national psyche that the country is without hope. Group two - the optimists. This set of folks believe the country is on the upswing. They quickly point out their successful family members and friends. The proliferation of cell phones. Nollywood, the Nigeria stock exchange, expensive cars on the streets, expensive foreign imports, or sprawling mansions owned by the few. And the final group - the opportunists. This is the set that doesn't really care whether the country moves forward or backwards, but is more interested in gaining a piece of the giant pie of ill gotten wealth.

The reality is that most of the problems that Nigeria and other African nations experience plague other developing nations too. We can look at history and point to colonialism tyrannical rule by dictatorships, mass exploitation, and corruption. But the original question that got me reminiscing is Nigeria's biggest problem.

In my opinion Nigeria's biggest problem is the mind-set of the average Nigerian. For there to be real change, people have to want change and a re-education of sorts. Expectations have to be realistic. Nigeria is a country of 130 million people plus people with 80 per cent reliance on less than $100 billion in oil revenue. Nigeria's yearly income is less than that of two major cities in the U.S. with 20 per cent of Nigeria's population, yet most cry foul for not receiving their piece of the black gold.

As Nigerians, we all need an attitude readjustment. Although, materialism is deeply interwoven in the national fabric. It is indeed possible to break away from the various cycle of trying to acquire wealth at all costs. As a youngster, I marvelled at people, who would borrow money to have block parties to celebrate one event or another. I also shook my head in disbelief at people who drove expensive cars but lived in a single room with 10 people. It is actually funny to see owners of fancy cars navigate their way through endless potholes and bad roads. I was even more amazed to see people vie for government contracts, receive payments and not perform any part of the contract.

There is no doubt in my mind that Nigerians are a hardworking, industrious people, so given the right mind-set and focus they can overcome their economic, political and social issues. With the right attitude the naysayers can again have faith, the optimists can be even more optimistic and the opportunists will have the occasion to work hard.

Post by: beibee on May 13, 2008, 10:11:50 AM

well...do you, sister judy2,
expect folks to keep such 'dirts'
in their pockets when there are

no provision for public waste bins?

by no means am excusing the wanton
disregard for discipline and cleanliness...

but, i feel we'll be reducing the biggest
problem of the country to a pedestal level
if we concur that everybody's the problem...

like the book "animal farm" pointed out:
"all animals are equal; but some are more
equal than the others"!

let's rise beyond the blanket category
of those who have messed up not only
the country but the human psyche and
dignity and the very essence of living...

as in a membrane...let's look at the core
of the failure...not the peripheral of marginal
foibles.

my 2rupees!
Title: Re: WHAT IS NIGERIA'S BIGGEST PROBLEM?
Post by: judy2 on May 13, 2008, 10:15:22 AM
so what is the core?
Title: Re: WHAT IS NIGERIA'S BIGGEST PROBLEM?
Post by: beibee on May 13, 2008, 10:39:46 AM


i lay no claim to knowing
the core...

but i sure know taking everybody
for the core is rudimentary in my little
wisdom...

i presume we need to explore the more
fundamental indices to the failing system
of this country...

a little exercise: can we look back at a time
when things were working in the country...

can we do some rough projections of a time-lag
when the rot of a nation began?

what factors were practically responsible then?
what further fundamental circumstances plunged
the nation deeper into the abyss of failure?

shall we?

what of parents who because greed push their children to 419 by comparing them to others who had made it without caring how they got their wealth.

the problem is not with the people but the leadership

no man is born a criminal the soceity  makes him
Fasola is doing his best in lagos state
people are grumbling gradualy lagos is taking a nice look


leaders go for conferences and endup in a business trip in dubai
no report of how the conference has beeen
pratical use of the theory is dump on their table

most our leaders are terrible
they are our problem

Post by: judy2 on May 13, 2008, 11:15:37 AM
I know from the start of this thread that you guys wanted us to start bashing the leadership but i refuse to do that.I still maintain my stand
@ayoolawa the best years of ones life are the ones in which you decide your problems are your own.you do not blame on your mother,the president,the society but realises that you control your destiny.
Title: Re: WHAT IS NIGERIA'S BIGGEST PROBLEM?
Post by: beibee on May 13, 2008, 11:22:01 AM

sister judy2...with all respect
it seems you've pre-conditioned

your mind towards this thread...
how many folks on this thread have
given the leadership bashing?

true, each one of us destiny is in our hands...
but, let us not underestimate or trivialise
the enormity of societal impact...

i've addressed you...not to look at what i termed
the rudimentary aspect of our existential failure...

can we without prejudice examine the exercise i gave
above?

it can only be an exercise in futility if it means that
at no material time nigeria ever did well...

he who wants equity must come with clean hands...
sister judy2, can you approach the rostrum please!

I SAY AGAIN, WE ARE ALL TO BLAME.

3 Simple questions:
1. Do you obey simple traffic rules?
2. Why don't you leave the wrapper of your gala in the car and throw it away after you get home instead of trowing it out of your car?
3. Why do you make calls while driving?

Is it the leadership of the Nation that will make you do the right things?

We are too quick to SHIFT blames. WHY?

Let us all do our part!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  ::)

@winnteam am on your team in this one oh!
Here people hold their piece of paper till they see dustbin.
Imagine me bending down in a busy supermarket to pick up sweet wrapper thrown away my little kids,sometimes you will see other people picking it for you.
I don't think is the leaders of our country that are sending all those stupid emails in my junk box.
The leaders have their own part to play too,but lets think of what we can do for our society and not always what we can get.
@poster where are you.

Which ones do you disobey then?

Do you give money to touts at the passport office to process your passport speedily etc

What I m saying like you will all agree is that there are a million and 1 things we ought to do without needing to look to our rulers not leaders.

@ judy 2 and @ all

Need I explain anymore on what dishonesty is!
It encapsulates every known thing that has been said and yet to be said.

A leaders is dishonest when he knows what is good for the people and he decides to pervet it and stands on top of truth and choose not to go the way of honour. Does the word Honourable mean anything to you? If that word means anything, and should be attached as prefix to someones name that shows it is worth more than anything else; however, when a supposed honourable man chooses not to adhere to the strict honours code, what do you get(?)

Talking about citizens; how honest is the yahoo boy that has chosen the route of obtaining by trick with the only justification that he has no other job to do. Blames the government and in turn blames the boys laziness....

Who wants to talk about the civil servant that can not uphold the tenets of his service code to be fair, just and diligence in service to all; but your files or documents are locked up in his desk drawer to be released when you 'settle'.

How about the contractor that throws caution and honesty to the wind and supply sub standard products or render poor services for a contract that was over-priced and yet paid in full; that apart, there is a willing coniver in a civil servant that approves the sub standard goods and service.

How about the JAMB candidate that will cheat to pass JAMB and proceed to the University to cheat through by hook or crook; paying through or sleeping through.

Will time warrant me to talk about the market woman, the artisans, the multinationals, the sexy bank ladies, the lecturers and even in the church.

The list is un-ending, whether you call it corruption, leadership malaise or anything it starts and ends when one chooses not to be honest in his/her dealings with another as a people and as a country; what you get in return is what we have in Nigeria today. Honesty pays!

Then others will follow.

It is still about that talk.... You talk what is practicable and prctise it, that to me is talking.

Meanwhile, this you oneliner (Killing) as solution to every Nigeria's problem has become unpopoular. The National Assemby is officially trying to abolish death penalty in Nigeria.

Chuxx said they should split Nigeria to three; how realistic? That can never be a solution to our problems. It would rather compound it.

Look at this:

for years Ohanese had been embroiled in leader tussle that make one wonder if they are still existing. The eastern states are not united at all. Every tribe want it own local govt. South south will never live in peace with Igbo. The civil war experience and the millitancy going on there give clear indication of this fact. In yoruba land, the Obas would not surrender their territory to fellow obas. The easy infiltration of colonial masters in yorubaland was a result of many years of civil war in yorubaland. Alaafin won't bow to Oni and so on.

In the north, there appear to be rally point for unity. But the minority tribes are finding their voices. At any rate, poverty would drive them to the south for re-union.

Merge all these together and see a more troubled nation. Breaking up is not a solution.

Our biggest problem is not the leadership nor the followership, it is not the educated nor the illitrates, it is not the drug barons nor the 419ners. It is not the politicians nor the social class, it is not the economic modelers/policy makers nor the celebrities. No not them at all.
Our greatest problem is our value system. We easily loose confidence in ourselves. We see ourself as the best candidate for any position but have the worst agenda for the position. We want every one to forgive us but have not forgiven any one neither have we forgiven ourselves for ones. We worship the money bags even when their money can never get to us. We have never condemned any of our relation that looted public treasury rather we have congratulated him with titles right, left and centre. Even in our villages, we take time to tongue lash and condem anyone that do not postrate to greet us while we have never asked any one to access us.
We rush American visa lottery as if it is the best thing that ever happened on earth. America have more worrisome problem than trying to accommodate us. We can make our country envy of european countries if we are honest to ourselves. If you want to know how good you are,ask your worst enermy. If he rates you up to or more than 35%, you have you have good pass mark. The only person that will solve you problem is you. Believing in yourselve and your ability to face to problem eye ball to eye ball is a fundamental step to solution to any problem. Be just.

Well said by all. when the head of a household dies, the house becomes an empty shell.our major problem was gaining Independence that early(as a nation we were not ripe for it in all ramifications.). our country is what it is today, because along the road to our present location:
there was a disregard for the rule of law by all and sundry;
Giving birth to most stuff mention earlier such as;
our leaders not been accountable,
the average Nigerian willing to pact way with a gift to achieve his/her aim without patiently following due process. e.t.c.
 Let not forget, that the proper workability of any given System is a function of its individual components.

  Profering solution: we start with ourselves, each doing the right thing without been force,"settled" or anyone watching you.Leader or Follower

Nigeria's biggest problem is the lack of empathy that drives generational change.  The drive of each segment of sochety is to gobble the cake today and let our children learn how to reconstitute cake from crap and crumbs! Steve Biko had the courage to admit that any progess-focused black man must at some point in his or her life query the humaness of the black race . . .  Why, for instance, are we the singular racial group without a form of writing? How can we exalt bling-bling when blood diamonds are us? How did we produce such a willing drone class in the face of murderous colonialism? Beyond the intellectual poseurism of the middle class, the political posturing of the 'social critic ' ,the open brigandry of the pseudo-popular movements and the instituitionalized hypocrisy we term relligious practice, is there any thing that commits us to an intergenerational development plan?

The issue is what can we do, how and when ?

I wish I have stronger hands and supporters, Age doesnt count and neither does ethnic background.
Nigeria is one whatever the religion or tribe, I am tired of words and stories cus we all know the present administration is not going to do anything to make life better for Nigerians.  The years back goverment "Nothing". . . . The last one did "Nothing". . The present "Hoping but surely there will be no improvement"

So the questions is what and how can we new generations make a CHANGE?

Lets try to be on the right road and don't mix things up by giving different reasons or opinions, We all know one basic thing and fact that "Nigeria is not better and know sign its going to get better with this our present government" Cus first is that they pass over the position to their trustees e.  g family or society member. 

So how can we do something positively different to make a positive change?

Post by: charlesmudy on November 25, 2008, 03:18:37 PM
This is what I think and believe, It might be the most foolish or harsh/terrible solution but I consider it the last option. 

People have to just stand up and challenge the present administration(Government) to step down and make a re-union(election) of new administation(Government) in-which I dont know who or how this people will be elected but I find this to be the best solution. 

Yes its true that who can we trust which is another thing.  .  But I believe more in the youths today than the old pre-dead folks we have who have rules since the past till present 40yrs and all they did and achieved was failure and downfall.

No need for the admistration stepping down, what is needed is to set up an independent commitee to monitor the govt spending. But the problem is can the commitee ever be independent with naija curruption.
Title: Re: WHAT IS NIGERIA'S BIGGEST PROBLEM?
Post by: charlesmudy on November 25, 2008, 03:55:43 PM
WOWWW.  .  .   U r so right Prince and I thought of this too but I concluded it might not work cus the commitee will need both power and full support from the Nigerians and foreign commissions.

But we all know that this our past and current government officials are so powerful and have connections. 

The commitee will be a free access and open link to the publics so by that the corruption will be so monitored and even if any of them wanna do something, it wont be possible cus of the public access and monitoring.

This is just the way they are operating the EUROPEAN UNION COMMINISSION.  atleast its 90% working

I said up that it was just my believe so I didnt say it is a MUST solution, So anyway any other better idea which am sure wont work as-long as this people r still in position. 

They either have to be controlled or they all totally step down out of power and thats why some said executing them is the best solution.   So whats ur idea and opinion?

The monitoring commitee will be set up by the govt, but it will be totally independent from the govt, that's how the european govt function.

what charlesmudy is asking is:
will the committee being set be from from
bad influence?
Title: Re: WHAT IS NIGERIA'S BIGGEST PROBLEM?
Post by: charlesmudy on November 25, 2008, 05:01:10 PM
am saying the committee should come from any angle but not from the Government shouldnt    even have anything to do from anybody from the government.

It should come entirely be formed from a new body.  I know might be hard or not possible but the truth remains. . . The solution to Nigerian's problem wont be an easy-doing as we know the corruptions and the people involve are deep in it and connected.

About European union commitee, u know they have being on this since 1965 or so,  so this as being going on for so long time and the new members are being elected by the present members

 Nigeria's biggest problem? Na me and you, I mean, the citizens.

 We all know that God Has so much love for this country, such that He  blessed us even more than most of the so called  highly industrialized countries. But they are far ahead of us in terms of development. Why is it so? No good manager, Simple!

 Idf we can manage our resources very well, ah, even USA will not be a match for us? Do you share my view?

so prince what do you say to this?

Why cant u bring or say something also?  wrong,bad and impossible can create possibilties. 

I am not saying it for words, I wish and have friends and we all wanna take further steps. 

So PRINCE u agree in my opinion, cus its clear and open that the corruption is high and those operating the system are powerful, so nothing can be created from this angle cus they will creat an ending point or find a way to get it corrupted too. 

It as to come entirely on its own, So the main problem will now be how to get it strong,powerful,reliable and the contributions of Nigerians.   Its shouldnt focus on the goverment's contribution at-all.    If it can get this things I mentionshed with the support of foriegn affairs and commitees.  .  IT WILL WORK

You know, i always believe that whites are not superior to blacks, so if the monitoring commitee can work in europe, i don't see why it can't work in a black man country.

Many govt officials end up in prison due to the monitoring annual report.

charlesmudy...am an impartial moderator of this topic
i have very radical opinions on this very topic under discussion

at a more convenient point and time i will let you know
beibee's own very radical ways of things not only for nigeria
but for every nation -developed, developing, underdeveloping and
undeveloped...

now, some folks talk about foreign interests
that don't want things to work...have you factored that into
the nigerian problems equation?
Title: Re: WHAT IS NIGERIA'S BIGGEST PROBLEM?
Post by: charlesmudy on November 25, 2008, 06:49:05 PM
Well thats true and u have a point abt that but we cant focus on those who dont have interest in Nigerian's situation, My own concern is how Nigeria can get better and thats why I am here in this room to find and share ideas with those who are ready for a better Nigeria. 

Yes to u Prince abt the truth Blacks being even better not just equal, So that is why I wish and want a positive change to Nigerian's economy.  
It wont be convinient for them to make or bring any kinda corruption if this kinda commitee stands up with the supports of what I mentionshed earlier, I just missed Nigeria and the life there and wish the economy can just be good and even better than this Europe, to be live-able and convinient so those that had left the country will come back and those that are still there wont have so much interest of going out cus this alone is killing the economy as Nigerians are not making contributions by or with this means.   After all those ontop keeps whipping out the money

@Beibee thank you for prodding us past the free readers debate ,@winteam, judy2 etc I pocket my snack wrappings . . .  Simply put i and many others have endured careers in development work because we recognize that solutions must bd found.  How do u kill a hydra-headed monster? By going for its heart I guess and at heart of nigeria's problems is the charecter or lack thereof of the Nigerian . . .  How do we get nigerians moving away from the lowest common factor behavior - u know where 10 nigerians in any given context will follow the worst behaved person in the room- and move them towards the highest common principle behaviour where the highest ideals lead you know women and children first off the sinking ship.  Were Gandhi a nigerian he would have walked alone, were rosa parkes a nigerian her fellow black bussers woukd have abused her for"causing delay"  martin luther king would have sold his dream to noone.  We must create a generation of nigerians that see the preceding generathons for what they were\are greedy, shameless, unprincipled, lazy smallminded , bumpkins who would sell their mothers for a bowler hat.

  Nigeria's problem is lack of sincerety by the political class from the time of our colonial masters. simple. Nigerians are natural peace loving people,who are their brother's keepers. watch nigerians in an accident scene or any gathering. we love ourselves,but our political class,be sincere,stand for the truth. stop making us fight ourselves for peanuts. i love this counrty,PROUNDLY NIGERIAN,GOD BLESS NIGERIA.

Politicians are F*uked up everywhere in the world but they have limits and atleast some common sense and human mentality.   But for Nigerian politicians.  .  .  .  they are fools,not sense of humor and poor/low mentality. 

I have said it b4 and I will say it again, The solution to Nigeria's problem is for Nigerians to find a way to wildraw all the past and present policticians/administrators/rulers out of power and start with a new/fresh/maybe younger people to start with a new administration.   I dont know how this will be or happen but the solution is not from our same politicians still being in power. 

This as being the way 90% of the developed countries got better, Tony Blair in UK was condemned by citizens until he wildrew, All European country's citizens fight/riot/strike/debate and make a public awareness of what they want, This also helped Obama to win the US election and presently this is what the Indians are doing and they are getting better little by little atleast they are in the list of G-20 member countries held in USA 2 weeks ago (G-20 means 20 most developed/developing/financially and economically stable countries in the world).   The countries on the G-20 list that should maybe be better than Nigeria is UK and USA and maybe China but Nigeria is so terrible we are on the list of pre-developing number 11th nation in the world, one of the most corrupted country in the world, almost 50% live below $100 per month and e. t. c.   When Nigeria is one of the higest agricultural and food exporter in the world and the number 9th crude oil exporter not just petrol alone.   Nigeria is the only country I know that has all its resources to live and stand alone without importing anything except cars and technological stuffs (computer) which we can even make latter on. 


The solution seems like a hard/tough/terrible way but we all know the solution to Nigeria wont and cant be easy.  .  .  the more damage .  .   the harder the solution becomes.   All European countries faced communist and we all know abt hitler stuff/ wars btw US and Russia/ wars btw US and Japan thats detroyed 90% of Japan/ wars btw UK and Germany and e. t. c. 

We just have to do something my brothers. . .

Title: Re: WHAT IS NIGERIA'S BIGGEST PROBLEM?
Post by: charlesmudy on December 01, 2008, 04:03:25 PM
Godddddddddddddddddd, Mr PRINCE do you still believe in this nonsense and waste of time solution?

This is it, Love comes from a good and well functioning brain then generates to the body system by adapting to the nature of situation in good or bad to be able to resolve a situations to a better condition.    So how can we have a good and well functioning brain? First we need good and better life, things that will make the body system function good (food, conveniency and e.   t.   c) which will affect the brain in a positive way and then generates things like love,care,kindness and e.   t.   c.  

Someone that hasn't eaten for 3 days will think of love? (then u should have being in biafran war), Someone that worked for ten yrs and has nothing to show for it will think of loving is neighbor or to steal from him or her? (then maybe you should go and live in one of the villages in the north), someone that is not sure of having or will have a better future will love someone he or she doesn't even trust? (hatred and self-dislike will grow up in him)

The solution comes from the hard way as the damages are just to much to handle by love cus already we love our politicians and government by not doing anything to this terrible past and present governing, Well am starting to think no doubt that Nigeria needs foreign assistance to solve Nigeria's problem.  

The manner of the force will and should be a plain and public affair but am sure might generate to riots and fightings which is normal due to the current damage level Nigerians is at and also the different ethnic group or so which might also bring up some misunderstandings.  But all this is normal after all they said nothing good comes easy. . .

WELL,AFTER GOING THROUGH MOST OF THE INTERVENTIONS OF MANY OF OUR DEAR CITIZENS HERE,I COULD NOT HESITATE TO CONGLATULATE ALL.  WHY?BECAUSE THAT IS ONLY THE MEANS OF CONTRIBUTING FOR THE RESOLUTION:DIALOGUE.  IF WE DON´T KNOW THE CAUSE OF OUR PROBLEMS,NEITHER COULD WE KNOW HOW TO SOLVE THEM.  I UNDERSTAND WHY MANY THINKS THAT OUR PROBLEMS WERE CAUSED BY THE LEADERSHIP OF OUR NATION AND EQUALLY ASSUME THAT WE HAVE OUR PARCEL OF THIS GUILT.  BUT IN THE FIRST INSTANCE I WOULD LIKE TO CALL TO MIND A FACT THAT SHOULD BE CLEAR TO ALL NIGERIANS.  IT IS ABOUT THE COMMON KNOWLEDGE IN OUR CULTURE THAT PRATICE MAKES PERFECT.  IF WE DON´T PRATICE OUR SOCIAL,MORAL,ETICAL AND CONSTITUTIONAL OBRIGATIONS,HOW DO WE EXPECT THINGS TO MOVE ON WELL IN THE COUNTRY?.  THIS INCLUDES EVERYONE AND NOT ONLY THE GOVERNMENT,NEVERTHELESS,THE GOVERNMENT SHOULD FIRST OF ALL COMPLY WITH THE RULE OF LAW PERTAING TO THE WAREFARE OF ITS CITIZENS,BEFORE EXPECTING THEM TO BE EXEMPLARY CITIZENS.  HOW DO WE EXPECT OTHERS TO BE HONEST WHEN WE OURSELVES WERE DISHONESTS?.  I BELIEVE PIOUSLY THAT ONE OF NIGERIAN´S MAJOR PROBLEMS IS OUR LEADERSHIP, THAT DOES NOT DO ITS PART,SECONDED BY THE CITIZENS´S NONCHALANT ATITUDE IN DENOUNCING ALL THESE ILLEGALS LOUTINGS OUR OF WEALTH,STASHED IN OTHER COUNTRIES.  ALL THE OTHER  EVILS AFFLITING OUR COUNTRY WERE DERIVED FROM THIS.  WHAT DO WE DO THEN?.  WE HAVE TO START AS SOON AS POSSIBLE THE PROCESS OF "CONSCIENTIZATION",IN OTHER WORDS,THERE IS NO NEED OF TRYING IN ONE DAY TO SOLVE NIGERIANS SOCIAL,EDUCATIONAL,POLITICAL AND RELIGIOUS PROBLEMS.  IT HAS TO BE A CONSTANT ENDEVOUR,WHERE THE PROTAGONIST SHOULD BE ALL AND NOT ONLY THE GOVERNMENT NOR BLAMING OUR SOCIAL DISORDER ON ONE ETNIC  SEGMENT.  WE HAVE TO JOIN TOGETHER TO MAKE OUR COUNTRY GREAT IN ALL ASPECT(NOT ONLY BOASTING OF BEEN ONE OF THE OIL EXPORTING COUNTRY)WHEREAS WE DON´T SEE THE RESULT IN THIER CITIZENS SOCIAL AND FINANCIAL BACKGROUND.  FOR ANY COUNTRY TO BE REALLY GREAT,THERE IS ALWAYS NEED TO LAY EMPHASIS ON EDUCATION(FACILITY),EQUAL DISTRIBUITION OF OUR NATIONAL RESOURCES AND OBEDIENCE TO THE RULE OF LAW BY ALL(INCLUDING THE GOVERNMENTS).  THAT IS HOW WE CAN START TO MAKE THINGS HAPPEN,INSTEAD OF ADVOCATING A VIOLENCE TO COMBAT OUR SOCIO-POLITICAL AND RELIGIOUS PROBLEMS.  LET´S DO OUR PART TO MAKE THIS NATION GO FORWARD AND FORCE OUR LEADERS TO DO THE SAME.

Post by: domcornelius on November 12, 2009, 03:31:28 PM
I will like to continue posting here,quoting in part some of the best writings i´ve come across about the perspective of Nigerian problem been our leadership.  Your Excellency is an emotional memorandum addressed, in a collective sense, to a particular set of Nigerian leaders, referred to as "Mr.   Wazobia.  " Mr.   Wazobia represents some of the past and present leaders of Nigeria who are expected to end the misery of the Nigerian people, but instead they have engaged in the looting of the treasury and resources of the country. 
In one dimension, this memorandum recounts the grief, heartache, anguish, frustration, and sadness among Nigerian masses in light of the present political, social and economic challenges in the country.   In another dimension, it narrates some measures several Nigerians are taking to confront those challenges.   In the end, it offers a recipe to produce great leaders who will satisfy the aspirations of the Nigerian people.  First, if leaders do not lead well, followers will not follow well.   Conversely, if leaders lead well, followers will follow well.   Second, leadership is action, not a position. 
Bedford Nwabueze Umez's works center on political, social and economic developments of Africa.  He has published in several journals, including Journal of Economic Studies, The Journal of Nigerian Affairs, and The Review of Black Political Economy.   Included in his publications are "Has Social Mobilization Caused Political Instability in Africa? A Granger-Causality Test," "Modernization and Political Instability: Evidence from Ethiopia, Morocco and Zaire," "A Comparative Analysis of the Economic Performance of the Military and Civilian Regimes in Nigeria: A Time-Series Study," "Economic Growth and Democracy: Additional Evidence," "Impact of Foreign Monetary Developments on Demand for Money: Regression Estimates and Forecast Results.  "
Umez is a regular contributor of articles to several African newspapers and magazines, especially in the United States and Britain.   He has reviewed several books on American government and politics.  WHAT MARVELS ME WAS THE FACT THAT WE HAVE MORE MONEY OUTSIDE NIGERIA THAN INSIDE,IN EUROPEAN BANKS WHILE NIGERIANS ARE BEEN FORCED TO BECOME DRUG-PUSHERS,LANGUISHING IN OTHER COUNTRIES PRISONS.  IN OTHER WORDS:The Nigerian No.   1 Killer at a Glance
“Nigerians have $100 billion (N13.  7 trillion) stashed abroad and 25,000 doctors working in foreign countries because of the absence of an enabling environment at home.  ”
--Economics Nobel laureate, Professor Joseph E.   Stiglitz, former World Bank Senior Vice President and Chief Economist, Nigerian Vanguard, May 2004. 
___________________
“Nigeria loses about $4.  5 billion (nearly N450 billion) annually as capital flight through technical services.  ”
--Emma Ujah, Nigerian Vanguard, August 2001
___________________
“The Federal Government has called for a probe of state governors over how they spend the monthly federation allocations they receive and the frequency of their foreign trips.   The Minister of State for Finance, Mrs.   Nenadi Usman, who made this call in Abuja during her visit to the Director-General of the Debt Management Office, Dr.   Mansur Muhtar, on Saturday, said that the government was worried by the high spending pattern of some governors, whom she accused of stashing their states' resources away in foreign countries.  ”
--Oluyinka Akintunde, The Punch, May 2004

I HOPE TO CONTINUE QUOTING THE MEMORANDUM OF DR.  UMEZ FOR RECOGNIZING THAT IT IS VERY PERTINENT TO THIS QUESTION OF WHAT IS NIGERIA´S MAJOR PROBLEM.  THANKS FOR THE OPORTUNITY.

Hey man, in my mind, the biggest problem is every country is GOVERNMENT.  Only a good government will lead the people to bright life.  But in nowadays, it seems not possible for that.  What we can do is "SELF-EDUCATION", and be clear about what the world is like.  Most important thing is yourself, what will you do for your country, your society and your family.  DON'T to be a BAD man is the base for being a good human being.

The Problem of Nigeria started with Oil.  It made us:

1.  Lazy

2.  Greedy

And so started the corruption.  As the centre got stronger under Military Rule, everybody chased Federal Government Office, patronage and contracts, which were usually acquired by corrupt means.

Corruption bred hyper  materialism, and vice versa.  The outcome, poverty.  Corruption and Materialism ensure that only the privileged few enjoy the proceeds of our resources.  Poor empowerment of the masses limits their capacity to diversify the revenue base.

I think most of us are missing some important things about ''Nigeria's biggest problem".  Although, we have complex economic problem in Nigeria, but I think if only our government can do just one thing for the citizens, every other problem will gradually have a solution for it.  We need our constitutions to be changed in accordance to a real democratic system of government where by the citizens will have or be given freedom of speech and rights to determine what they actually want from the government.  The citizens should be able to complain about any problem they have and challenge their leaders for not doing their jobs effectively.  The citizens should be given the absolute power to determin what goes on in the system of government and to choose who will govern them or not.  The government is meant to serve the people and not the people to serve the government.  The citizens are the ones who determine who their leaders will be and should be provided with all they need and ask for and most especially when they complain.  A system of government where by the citizens don't have any freedom, are not listened to, and the government not doing what they are suppose to do, will always and continues to have a problem both socially and economically.  :(

NIGERIA REFERS TO THE LEADING EVIDENCE.  WE CAN NOT DEN THAT A GOOD NUMBER OF NIGERIANS DO THEIR EXPECTED PART .  BUT THEY ARE IN ISOLATION AND NOT THE GENERAL PATTERN .  WE CAN ALSO NOT DENY THAT MORE THAN A SIMPLE MAJORITY OF NIGERIANS HAVE THE CAPACITY TO CONTRIBUTE TO DEALING WITH THE PROBLEMS .  BUT WHILE SOME ARE WILLING AND ARE ALREADY DOING IT , SOME MORE ARE WILLING BUT ARE NOT YET DOING IT .  AND STILL MORE WILL DO IT IF COMPELLED TO DO IT .
LIKE IN OTHER SOCIETIES ONLY A NEGLIGIBLE FEW WILL NOT BE ABLE AND BE UNWILLING TO DO IT . 
THE UNAVOIDABLE SOLUTION RESTS WITH THE REORIENTATION OF ALL SUPPORTED BY REWARDS AND SANCTIONS SYSTEM MANAGED BY A LEADERSHIP STRUCTURE WITH A NIGERIAN PHILOSOPHY THAT IS LIVED BY IT - AT HOME , SCHOOL , WORK , WORSHIP AND LEISURE .

My people perish for lack of knowledge.  Though there are numerous things one can point at as Nigeria's most pressing problem, I believe the lack of knowledge (or ignorance) can be whittled out as the most prominent.  This lack of knowledge affects the lowliest of classes in Nigeria, through the average man to the political office holders.  No one is exempted.  Ignorance is the disease that is rotting this country.  The saddest thing though is that we are doing nothing about it!

Ethnic Over-consciousness is nigeria's biggest problem. Nigeria is not a nation and adoption of a national culture would have saved thne miserable entity......but nay, I don't see just yet, the political will to craft our own national culture.....yes, considering the headless leaders we have here.

Since national culture is not feasible here, next best option is dissintegeration of the trapped - in - nations. Free Biafra. Free OOwa (oduduwa). ONLY THIS WOULD AVERT A SERIOUS RELIGIOUS WAR THAT WILL SOON DESTROY EVERY LIFE FORM IN THIS HELL OF A COUNTRY.

The return to tribalism is less than return to clans and then to family and to one's mother's womb , against moving to nationalism , regionalism before globalization .
Moving backwards is an abuse of the intelligence of men .
That is the definition between people and their orientation .

Soviet Union dissintegerated. U.S.A. broke off from Britain. Scottland broke off from United Kingdom. Hongkong broke off from China. To mention but a few. And read about the progrees of these nations after breaking off the chimera of mobocratic creation.
Let's get practical.

The seeming factors that are associable with the transformation were not achieved devoid of history .  That is why homogeneity is not a guarantee for advancement.  That is why USA that broke off is multifaceted .  The principles upon which USA was created and fostering is too complex for cutting to paste , to make a better Nigeria or several Nigerias out of the present state of history .  Historical process and making is more serious than immediate appearances .  The development of the presidential system in America is a pointer to what men are capable of realizing and our efforts are a proof of a variant attempt by a different set of capabilities and circumstances .

Please for coordination of thought and helpful guidance RELATE the eradication of Fulanis and Islam to your earlier posts of Leadership and Corruption .

It will be difficult to learn from you because you muddle up explanation with hypothesis .
And a change will help us support you if you come up to offer the difference.
