The country is not working, Nigeria is a failed state. People don't even depend on Government to build roads anymore, the only road in my village was built by a businessman. People don't depend on Government for electricity, they just buy generators. People don't depend on Government for water, they just dig boreholes. Why do we have so much interest in this Government that is doing nothing?

You wanted to know? View the quote below for one reason.

Some of us are still stuck in a moment hundreads of centuries in the past. Blaming others for our situation. Look at India, look at the new SE Asian Tigers. All these countries except China were once Colonies of Western Europe as well. Yet they are striving high and we are still talking nonsense about the "white man's" conspiracy against Africa.

We love outsiders more than we love ourselves!!

simple example:

Nigeria and other colonies fought for British against the Germans during the World Wars I & 11.

Yet, British love/treat with respect the Germans more than they do for the former African-colonies.

Compare British contribution with EU and Commonwealth!
