After thirteen (13) years of our democratic governance, there is still no way forward. The speed of our nation towards backwardness is highly dissapointing. The government in power is short of positive initiatives and reasonable ideas to move this coutry forward.
Right from day 1, the present administration hasn’t been enjoying peoples’ confidence. The rate of corruption increases on daily basis and the government is watching. The EFCC does not have the power to prosecute the corrupt public officers without the approval of Mr. President. The state governors have converted local governments and state Houses of Assembly to an extension of their bedrooms, controlling them with their funds in an unhealthy manner.
We lack good roads, basic health care, portable water, employment opprtunities, food security and power. The present administration has failed woefully on their responsility to protect the lives and properties of Nigeria. Our stock market and the entire economy is less viable. Our education system is nothing to write home about.
Come June 1, the National Electricity Regulatory Commission would begin to implement the newly increased rate of power, thereby causing more hardship to Nigerians. This I guess is President Jonathan’s Democrazy Day gift to all Nigerians. Apart from the continous existence of Nigeria as one and payment of salaries to public servants, this government has nothing to mark or celebrate today except failure in all aspect of human endearvor. Is this how we would be for more 3 years to come? We really need urgent divine intervention”. – Abdullahi Abdullateef As-sudaisiy
