I've observed that Nigerians actually accepted Democracy with joy and relief in place of militacracy not because the knew that the system would be more rewarding and portends higher dividends than the alternative forgone or not but because in actual sense they was no better alternative to the form of government their leaders offered them 13yrs back. Its 13 yrs down the line and today we celebrate the 13th yr in an imperial form of government that is the flip side of an imperial economic system(capitalism). 13yrs in a form a government that is in theory a government of the people, by the people and for the people but in practice is a reflection of the alienation of the people from the government they sacrificed their rights to & allowed to rule them through social contract.

Speaking from the spiritual and moral point of view. Nigerians and Corruption practitioners in Nigeriaalike are of one faith or religion or the other and fortunately for us, the two dominant religions in Nigeria both preach against corruption practices calling it a crime and sin against God.Christians in Nigeria constitute around 50% of the entire population. If this reasonable number of Nigerians that are suppose to live christ like lives moderate the rate at which they fall into SIN and tend towards Holy living, maybe the level of corruption in Nigeria will reduce drastically. Same should apply to the muslim folks too.Continue
Nigeria and a cashless economy. Are we truely ready for a cashless based economy. Maybe, some parts of Nigeria are much ready to accomodate the system while some others are not yet ready. In as much as it might be a great idea, we should be also be prepared to tackle the menace of hackers who will always be much around to cash in on the system. I think lagos been used as a test ground is a good idea. The lessons learnt from lagos experience should be used to improve on the Nigeria cashless economic system in general. I believe we can do it, yes we can.
Some schools of thought are of the opinion that the amalgation of the North and southern Nigeria in 1914 was a political welding together and not a political wedding. In a wedding, there is mutual consent of the two parties to be wedded, while the reverse is the case in a welding where the two parties are forced to stick together even against their will. So! Is it possible that we are paying the price today of this welding together which was rather imposed on Nigeria by our colonialists without mutual consent of the two divides?? And that the welded parts are today strained, cracked and seeking for a return to what it was before 1914?. A political marraige which is a product of a political wedding is way better than a political welding.
