That's us up there , the Nation that was suppose to be Great.
In Nigeria, as a young lad, just completing his education as the custom demands, the usual and most common employment is the enrollment of hopelessness that strangles many at the neck of
survival until they get to that breaking point where they can no longer take it. Yeah. No longer take it, until they take the worse, the worst or the unspeakable. . The worse means a lot . A lot of Nigerians can relate with this: Internet Scams, Swindling and Unclean Business Practices. Kidnapping is now part of the Worse List. Add that to list, please.
It is a quite crazy down here in Nigeria, as regards the political and economic situation of things,also included in the uncertainty is the unpredictability of safety.
Many people have exited the country before yawa bursts. Yawa Bursts is just a nigerian slang for when the worse happens. To better translate, it is almost like saying * When a Balloon of Chaos and Trouble Bursts*.
Nonetheless, The Nigerian Doom ,which is the possession every Nigerian Youth seem to possess just like how every Americans has the luxury and the possibility of the American Dream in their
possession, is a very complicated situation very hard to describe in exactness when you are not in the midst of it.
First of, who is to blame for the DOOM. If you say the leaders messed up,you would be right, but then that is just an Upper Level Inference for almost any problem in any society. Just blame the leader and you will be right but not always. The problem of the Nigeria has eaten so deep in to the core of the Nation , that no one can be declared blameless. Not even me. Not even you if you are a Nigerian. We all carry a percentage of the blame. Many people even blame The West.
I am not talking of an equal percentage here. So to speak, a lot of people are in the upper percentile of the Blame Carriage, yet they are not political leaders. They have done and are still doing evil to the detriment of the innocent.
Someone said Nigeria is not in Recession, it is in depression.
Allow me the indulgence of looking at the above statement from a psycho-medical point of view to better drive home my point.
When depression sets in without a consideration of Careful Treatment, suicide and death begins to rear its head at a near-one probability, if you know what I mean.
We have seen this, all of us have. The **Black and White Television **Old have seen it, the Social Media Young is in the midst of it, the Unemployed Yahoo-Susceptible are being strangled by it and here is what they think,written below in CAPS.
It is over. Guy, FORGET PVC, GET PASSPORT.
That is the voice of a typical Nigerian
How do you know this? If you ask me this , then, I will ask you how do you know otherwise?. if you have a different and opposing opinion, then you need to get employed in the school of empathy just as how Sane Nigerians are enrolling the other sane Nigerians that wants to vote Buhari again in the school of very effective curses.
Who wins or who doesn't is not the question for the problem? The truth is that Nigerians tried this once and they failed. They voted for someone , expected so much, and got nothing in return, will they do that again? The comfortable will, the frustrated will not . They want to abscond. PVC is good when you have hope, when you don't , it becomes a tool of annoyance that passes kunta-kuntish messages to your sub-conscious, only that this time A black is the slave master for his fellow Negroids and guess what, he is worse than the Whites who pioneered the lucrative trade.
As for me, I am quite hopeful for Nigerian, yet without facts to back my hope. It is more of Faith than hope, or rather I'll call it a HOPE OF MIRACLE that Nigeria will re-steer his course towards CANAAN again.
The man asked "When was the last time, we had CANAAN in sight"
The tired and wet Passenger replied "That was fortnights ago,I think we need to change the captain".
The man answered "Will that help".
