Nigeria: A Country Intentionally Structured On Faulty Foundation

Many people have written about the faulty structure of the nation, Nigeria. Many have in the same vein, dissipitated energy  to see if they could profer solution to this national problem, but they never succeeded because the country, Nigeria killed them. To start with, Nigeria as a country is sincerely not supposed to have existed. It was created by the British with many unsolvable problems. Professor Chinua Achebe of blessed memory in his book titled: "The troubles with Nigeria", insightfully pointed out a lot about the problematic structuring of the country. Referencing to the said Achebe's book, you will find many of these age-long problems clearly stated.

Nigeria is a dream killing country. It is a country with stains of the blood of her own citizens. Permit me to arguably say that the British purposely structured it that way. The present poor state of Nigeria is not certainly accidental, but was planned so to be by her creator, Britain. Though many have been deceived into gullibly believing that Nigeria is the giant of Africa, every well thinking individual knows that to be a joke.
If I may ask, of what importance is a crippled giant in the first place?
Nigeria was handed over to the Fulanis, for them to use it the way they so please and the results is what we are today, regrettably witnessing.

Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has always referred to Nigeria as a "Zoo" while others have argued that he should apologize to the animals in the zoo because zoos are far more organized than Nigeria. It goes to show how bad the Nigerian situation really is.
Sometime ago, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu wrote few of such disorderliness on his Facebook timeline. He said: "The Fulani North does not have seas, but they are in charge of all sea ports in the South. They have no single drop of oil, but they own all oil wells in the South and are in charge of National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC). They score lowest in every exams, yet they are Chief Justices, Attorney-Generals of the Federation (AGFs), Supreme Court Judges and Army Generals".

Now, tell me how a country with such low mentality group of individuals, ever grow. How could anyone ever think that growth or development will be achieved in such a country as Nigeria, living in perpetual mediocrity? A country that exists in total oppression and suppression of the will of her citizens, will most definitely never see growth.

Someone once wrote and I quote:
Nigeria is "the land of generals without war, professors without discovery,
politicians without ideology, wealth without prosperity,
religion without piety, leaders without vision,
the oppressed without worries,
courts without justice, criminals without fears,
history without glory, heroes without honor,
schools without learning, artists without taste,
intellectuals without thought,
terrorists without identity, appointees without life, hunger without famine, change without progress,
next level without foundation,
looters seeking a return, democracy without citizens,
unity without love,
heroes without sacrifice,
policies without plans, crime without culprits,
saints without humility,
integrity without performance,
wars without enemies,
billionaires without business,
youth without dreams and
elders without wisdom".

It is only in Nigeria that you will see prostitutes that are still virgins, a country where criminals are celebrated, hooligans and touts occupy public positions but the righteous ones die and decay in prison. Yes, Nigeria itself, is a fault that needs to be corrected before it will kill Africa as a continent.
