@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.
