Wat I say!!!!
By all indicators, economic, social, technological, and political, it ranks towards the bottom compared to most countries across the world. Nigeria is a failed state, no doubt about it.
Forget comparing ourselves to the US, way out of our league.
Imagine the president of India or Musharraf from Pakistan stealing from the treasury.
This has got nothing to do with the failure or otherwise of Nigeria. From the pix, one can easily deduce that its just a stage - managed snap shot. A sort of film. For Christ's sake, why do we have to believe everything? I thought it was a pix of Yar' Adua sleeping while Aondoakaa, Ibori and Akume rule Nigeria.
From the PICs, I see 2 desperate police officers attempting to do what they do best "collecting bribe"
The driver of the car on the other hand seems to be pretty much tired of donating his money every evening; therefore he knocks the officer right on the floor and moves on.
This is part of life. I don't see anything that says Nigeria is a failed state.
You've got to fight back one way or the other. My view would have been different only if our Police officers were known to do what is right "just" 20% of the time.
