Here Is Why Nigerians Should Stop Praising Politicians When They Provide Jobs by Andyibest: 9:38pm On May 12
A man once told me that the reason why the blacks are completely different from the whites is because we have not yet evolved to the level they are... We are at the point they were in the 1880s and we are still evolving...

Nigeria is a country in ruins and not because of the government, but because of the people.. Remember, Nigeria is not a place, but a people.

The political system of Nigeria is still a do or die affair just as the same way Emperors were being murdered anyhow in China (in the olden days), we are still not evolved to understand things and that is why we praise our politicians and kiss their feet.

look at it this way... We are the ones who employ (elect) politicians e.g Buhari to work in their office and we can take them out if we don't want him after 4 years.

Now, look at it this way, when a boss employs a worker he gives the worker the list of his duties and expects the worker to do them without fail because he is getting paid.. That is the same way Buhari was employed to do certain duties without fail because he is getting paid...

Now, this worker does his job and the company moves forward. There is no boss in this world that praises the worker for doing his job. Bosses only praise workers for adding more to their job, for doing it perfectly, for helping them reduce costs, for doing it faster and they are given promotion.

Now when I look at Nigeria, when Buhari builds roads, gives electricity, water, build schools or provide jobs, people keep praising him, why do they do that? Buhari was employed to do these things and he does them accordingly so we should not be surprised. There is no boss in Nigeria that is surprised that his worker does things just as he wanted them to do it.

Bosses are only surprised that workers do more to it and bring a perfect job... Now let's say Buhari provides 3m jobs in 3months. Now that is something we praise him for because we employed him to provide jobs, but the speed at which he does it makes him deserve praise... Between a fast and slow typist who receives praises. The fast one, and not because his work is better or cleaner, but because he saves time...

Nigerians need to understand this that we are not begging these people, these people depend on us and we are their bosses, but Nigerians prefer to be lied to and praise them when they build roads as if we employed Buhari for nothing...

When we keep praising these politicians for doing what they are supposed to do we keep reducing our expectations for them and they keep doing the little things we praise them for, this cycle continues till they leave office and even after they leave office.. And that is why for over 18 years of democracy no politician has been able to solve the problem of the people... Because the people who vote them are comfortable with the little things they do...

They build roads we hail, they build bridges, we hail, they build street lights we hail and I wonder why we employed them in the first place

Will you keep praising Buhari, Okowa, Wike, Ambode etc or any politician from any part for building roads, for providing jobs, for providing quality healthcare... Isn't that why we employed him in the first place

Ask yourself these questions and stop accepting little things from these politicians, because this cycle will continue even after the death of Buhari and Obasanjo... don't say that Nigerians will never listen, because you are a Nigerian, if you listen and implement it, that means others will too...

I am just trying to look at things differently, because you can't expect a blind man to lead blind men, you can expect a politician that thinks just like you to change a whole country.

You are wonderful. Gullibility and ignorance has made so many of the people to sell their rights to these politicians and they (politicians ) took undue advantage of the people. They loot our money and pretend to be upright. We even praise and defend them for that. Some of us even abuse, insult and fight to kill on their behalf even when we just benefit little or nothing from their administration, only because he from our tribe or religion. We still living in stone age anyway

To a man facing 'extreme starvation, "rotten" bread would seem like a "Blessing". You cannot blame us jare, we have suffered for so long that 'basic social amenities" now seem like 'undeserved benefits', sometimes if we have uninterrupted power supply for more than 24 hours we start feeling guilty and worried that something is wrong. The people that should be ashamed of themselves are "THE ELITE" in our society, i always tell people that the biggest oxymoron is the term "African Billionaire", my people have a saying "if your person is put to shame and you say you are not ashamed then it is obvious you have no shame" ALL Nigerian billionaires, professors, royal fathers, kings, queens, international business men, celebrities, sports men and women or any individual that can be referred to as 'Elite' are all SHAMELESS!! I don't know how they can even show their faces in other countries with their jets, Desinger clothes, bags, shoes and be feeling like 'VIPs' when the whole world knows your country is in a pitiable state! SHAMELESS LOT!!!! angry

We as a people and Nation DESPERATELY NEED TO change the CALIBRE & COMPLEXION of politicians that we have!

True (and lasting) reform can ONLY come when you have VISIONARY and to a large extent SELFLESS leaders.

The leaders historically and currently offered up at Party Primaries and who win through money induced indirect voting WILL NOT change the Status Quo.

Hooks Law states that their is a limit to elasticity/expansion, at some point there WILL BE a breakdown.

Things CANNOT continue like this!

We NEED VISIONARY SELFLESS LEADERS

just tired of the whole system in Nigeria,
Who can be trusted?
imagine if you misplace your phone or mistakenly pay money into the wrong account in Nigeria, the probability of you getting your phone/money back is 1%.

Nigerians are wicked and harsh, that's why we were so eager to sell ourselves as slaves to the whites, that's why we burn people alive everyday in the street all in the name of justice, both the innocent and the guilty are burnt alive ( Remember those Uniport Aluu boys), their only crime was being born in Nigeria.

God I'm so tired, I need to leave this place, everything in Nigeria is not working and I don't think this country will ever get better.

A place like Nigeria shouldn't have existed in the first place, it is not meant for HUMANS, imagine the way SARS, kills people anyhow, people just die anyhow like animals in Nigeria, just the way animals die anyhow in the jungle. No one cares, no hospitals, no road, poor and depressing educational system.

When I go out all I see are tons of people who are ready to scam anyone given the slightest opportunity, that's why I can't blame our politicians alone cus, even the citizens are no different.

While you are right, but you need to acknowledge the reality in Nigeria. There is no servant leader in Nigeria. I know it, you know it, we know it.


Once the person has your mandate to lead others, he is the lord of lords, you can not tell him otherwise - he is beneath the followers simply because the followers pay his wages. We don't see it this way in Nigeria. The commonest SUG council elected by fellow students on same campus lords over others how much more a politician who spent his life savings, scratched, fought and killed their way to the top. The problem still lies with our collective mindset not set of people called 'politicians'.

The problem is most Nigerians are abnormal
Imagine always being around darkness all year round
Seeing graphic images everyday,
If you talk to people you would realize it.
