Popular Nigerian comedian Alibaba writes lengthy post today on his Instagram page to shake table where state governors, presidential aspirants and some citizens are sitting on.
The ace comic act wrote below:
The people that always want us to slow down so that they can catch up are the worst kind of people to have around. They don’t process things on your wavelength, they don’t know how you do your thing, they are not capable and thus not empowered to see the things that your foresight can dream up. When their insecurities kick in they try to hide them under all kinds of guises. They will use all kinds of tricks to get you to step down your climb. Just so they can be like you. The greatest problem they have is that they believe that your progress will be a benchmark for their life. Just like some states in Nigeria. The only reason they want Nigeria to be united, IS BECAUSE OF THE FEDERAL ALLOCATION. If they don’t get that monthly FEDERAL allowance for say 3 months, will the governor still have enough mouth to answer “Excellency’? If each state were to pay their senators and reps from their pocket, would any of them still want to serve their State talk less of Nigeria? Their funiture allowance then will buy only plactic chairs. Think about it, can the IGR of some states bear it’s overhead? The way I see it, many of the states that say no to state POLICE are part of why crime is on the increase. Because they can not afford it. They can not employ and pay teachers, so their educational standards are low. But when that happens, the uneducated then become unemployable, who then become those who produce children to while away time. Then in the end they all become citizens that the states that can hold their own have to cater for. Just look at all the people who want to be president of Nigeria, which one is from a state that can beat it’s chest to be self sustainable without Federal allocation?
