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.

our biggest problems is our leadership...other countries have their natural disasters, our own natural disasters are our leaders...we keep recycling the same mutherfuc...ers and they just got nothing to offer...and what could be our strength (diversities of language) is also a weakness. our different tribes just dnt wanna be united...even in this forum we have the yoruba thread!! we always look for ways to segregate...so what hope?

i'm gonna split the country in 3!!! thats the solutions. the variuos tribes just wanna stay together, so lets split. that way, the northerners will know they still have ground nuts and cotten, the westerners, cocoa and whatever, and the easterners will settle on whatever...the whole country's dependance on crude shouldnt be long term..shit!!! 2 much talk,no actions. we need a revolution guys. lots of blood needs to be shed to change stuffs. look at history, violence sumttimes work...most times

@ 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!

Accepted, we will start with you, at least you are not totally exenorated from the rot. You go don make one Nigerian mistake, just once; so tell us where we can locate your dead body for a start.

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.

can we have yur next solution, please!!!

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?
.   .   .    more, much more than this I do it my waaaay!!!

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?
Unity.   .   Believe.   .   Change.   .

How to change a socio-political unit of exploitation created by conquerors, who to all intents and purposes saw us as subhuman ?? How to change this unit of exploitation into a nation of peoples with the common goal of the greater good for the greater majority?? That is the problem
