PROACTIVE? That sound grand, but your big grammar, you should come down to earth and face reality of Nigeria. Nigeria has no democracy but their own concept of military rule being masquerade as democracy. I call it militocracy.

While countries like Ghana, South Africa, Liberia etc are giving us some beacons of hope, one is sad that our country, Nigeria, the so called giant of Africa, who should have been at the fore front of change and progress in Africa has become an embarrassment not only to us as Nigerians but to all Africans and the world at large.

I have never understood why Nigerians seem to equate an election to a democracy, when empirical evidence from most parts of Africa points to the contrary.

Though no one wishes for a military intervention now but the President, the Federal Government, the Inspector General of Police, PDP, INEC and all are assiduously working towards achieving that objective.

If the military take over, it is just another set of animals coming into power, as we have had them before. We currently have animals as leader under the democratic dispensation. Military or civilians, we have so far proved that only animals are capable of leading this nation.

democracy is an experiment.  Countries like India that got independence at a similar time as Nigeria are still tweaking their system.

You guys are being impatient.

is there a confusion betweeen WHAT-IF and I-WISH?

I think politicians need to be reminded of history and how corruption and electoral fraud destroyed our previous attempt at multi-party democracy. To suggest that the justification for democracy should not be questioned and assessed on whether it lives up to its promise; all because Democracy is better than Military Government is to give our current leaders a blank cheque that will only seek to destroy our 3rd attempt at democracy.

WE NEED TO REMIND THESE GUYS THE DANGERS OF ELECTORAL FRAUD AND CORRUPTION

Those who remind us of the implictaion are not calling for military takeover anymore than a Government who conducts election where what happens on the ground is so divorsed from the final results.

maybe you should move your children to Botswana as outlined in your profile. Let the female ones among them dance Unclad to see if they'll catch the king's eye and enter the world of goodies.

After that's done, you can then die and rot for your actions and morally bankrupt compass as you've said here. Anyone who wants to join you is free to do so.

if military takes over nko?  You go die?

The fact is, your internal struggle can never end regardless where you are because your mind is your own prison.

Not at all. All am advocating is a more proactive approach as opposed to slow armchair criticism. These coupists mouthing off on internet forums are too lazy to engage their brains to the problems we face as a nation, they would have us leap back into the arms of the military everytime things are not going quite the way they should go.

This Democracy thing is more of a journey than a destination, you keep discovering better ways of doing stuff as you go along. Even the western powers are still battling with corruption and conflicts of interest in their high offices.

We need to join hands together as Nigerians, even while we're still on the outside of the power game, and work toward changing the inefficiencies in the system. We need to criticise the government, we need to stand up, together, for our rights, and not run around foolishly asking for coup everytime we feel we've been cheated by our 'leaders'. Look at people like Gani Fawehinmi, Femi Falana, Nuhu Ribadu, Festus Keyamo. Some of these guys have dedicated the bigger part of their lives fighting for justice on the behalf of the rest of us. Let's try and emulate their courage and selflessness instead of asking for coup like brainless fools.

Actually you guys need to get an education.

If you were a student of you history you would know that all these upheavals that Nigeria is passing through now are just phases of development.

The near-perfect democracies that we see and applaud in the Western Nations were not built in a day; in the UK for instance, parliamentary seats were still up for sale to the highest bidder as recently as the sixteenth century. Only advantage they had in those days was the absence of the mass media that, in our own time now, gives them the opportunity weigh our political-backwardness against their near-perfection, in real time, and then they denigrate us as if we're savages.

There is no political happening in Nigeria today that hasn't been enacted in the U.K. and America before. The only difference is the time distance of two, three hundred years between their history and ours.

Trust a Nigerian to quickly look for who is worse than they are in Burma. Why not closer to home? Ghana use be ruled by the Junta too.

So rights have Nigerian exactly have at the moment. The same people ruling now are he same people that use to be ministers, governors, commissioners and even presidents under the same military.

If you think their is different, it means you haven't actually experienced a real and true democracy.

Some people still dont get it. The big difference is that you dont have any rights under the military, no matter what the officers and gentlemen would have you believe. Under the military there's no prospect for progress in any form.

Civilians under the military government are slaves of the "State", the "State" being constituted of the military class and members of their immediate circle of family and friends.

Take the case of Burma as an example, albeit an extreme one.

What is the real different between military and what we have now? The same people, except they're all wear Agbada, red cap, Buba and Ashoke now instead of the usual green kharki for some of them.

So what had changed?

A coup would mean starting the struggle all over again. We dont want a military regime.

Silently, I stir my mind with the worse case scenario, n trust- we dont want that

If anything would happen at all, let us take our children to a far away country, write them the history of Nigeria until now and declare another Hiroshima incident. Let us all die n rot for our inactions and corruption and leave our children the discretion of determining their future.
