|Major Patrick Chukwuma Kaduna Nzeogwu by EzeUche(m): 3:40am On Mar 15, 2010|
"Our enemies are the political profiteers, the swindlers, the men in high and low places that seek bribes and demand 10 percent; those that seek to keep the country divided permanently so that they can remain in office as ministers or VIPs at least, the tribalists, the nepotists, those that make the country look big for nothing before international circles, those that have corrupted our society and put the Nigerian political calendar back by their words and deeds." - Major Patrick Chukwuma Kaduna Nzeogwu, Jan. 15, 1966.
A firm believer in "One Naija," this man tried to make this country into something greater, but look what happened.
Everything this great man said in 1966 could be used today in Nigeria. It is funny how things stay the same.

The guy is a mutineer who, along with his cohorts, murdered their senior officers in the military and key government officials including the prime minister and two premiers. That those in government were inept or corrupt is not a valid excuse. Their actions initiated military rule in Nigeria and sent us down the road of civil war, and, left the door open for the likes of IBB and Abacha. He is no different from any other coup plotter, and shouldn't be made out to be a hero. Doing so encourages any other disgruntled military officers who deems any civilian regime unfit to take a similar course of action.

the men in high and low places that seek bribes and demand 10 percent
Unfortunately today they seek 90%, if only they took 10% today Nigeria will be a mini- Dubai by now.

I agree with you on this one, but to an extent.
By the last time I checked IBB, OBJ, Abacha, and Danjuma remain heroes(though unfortunate) to some people.
