  1. How, was Nigeria ever great? In the 70s may be. Under civilians rules, the country has been marked with corruption and mismanagement. To date, Nigeria remains in darkness, no electricity, insecurity of life and property, unemployment created by importing junk food and other commodities. Roads and schools are allotted budgets to be squander in corruption. Ambulances remain fanthom and politicians remain the highest paid in world. Nigeria is governed by unworkable constitution design to keep Nigeria in the stone age. Health services are not designed for the less privileged, cause they are not within their reach. It’s either somewhere in Europe or North America, only the corrupt politicians can access them. What a country so blessed but remain perpetually held hostage by the very few.
