"Don't Touch My Tribesman", But What Does A Bigot Benefit? (A must read for All) by midolian(m): 5:07pm On Jul 31, 2015
When I see Nigerians that are tribalistic and bigoted, I fear and pity them at the same time.
We are supposed to come together and make Nigeria great again, however, we don't seem to get it.

Look at Olusegun Obasanjo, who was the president of Nigeria for 8 years, he is from Ogun state, but ask people of Ogun state, of what benefit is he to the people of the state?

Niger state has produced two heads of state, Ibrahim Babangida and Abdusalam Abubakar. I was privileged to serve in the state during my National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), when I got to my place of primary assignment, I started crying, the first question I asked was this: "am I still in Nigeria?" The people said "yes." Niger state was so underdeveloped; I witnessed poverty and unspeakable suffering so much so that I think they were better off without a government.

Goodluck Jonathan is from Bayelsa state. A state with just 9 local governments, several people in that state don't have toilets, they don't have running water, no hospitals so much so that his wife had to travel to Germany each time she had a running nose. Even though he was in power for 5 years, they are still suffering.

Talk about the former minister of petroleum resources, Dieziani Alison-Madueke, go check out what her village looks like, you will be shocked. If I continue, we will have an endless list.

Last month some universities in the United Kingdom did their graduation. I saw pictures of sons and daughters of those who have stolen our collective wealth on Facebook and Instagram. These are the people who are supposed to make our education sector solid, most of their children are citizens of foreign countries, they've abandoned this nation, the truth is they no longer care about us, their kids are not citizens of this country, their kids are no longer your tribesmen or kith and kin. They don't care about us. What are the benefits of being a Nigerian? We pay for almost everything, but we get no services. Our country is blessed, but we have selfish and greedy leaders.

Since last week, we keep hearing of theft of public funds, so much money that some former government officials people have embezzled. It is mindboggling! They now steal in billions and trillions, yet the masses are suffering.

I wonder what one person needs so much money for.

Even if you build a mansion, you can only sleep in one room, on one bed. In the end, we are all indebted to death. The highest you can get is befitting burial in an expensive casket. If you are a Muslim just a white wrapper. In the end, it is "vanity upon vanity."


The earlier you agree that the failure of leadership is a big part of our problem the better! No one can save us but ourselves. So I come back to the young suffering, unemployed and deprived citizens who are first to to step up to defend corruption, nepotism and theft of our commonwealth because someone accused is from their tribe, church, mosque or social circle or because they have been promised a token gift, well, now you know, your condition will not change regardless of whether the president, minister or governor comes from your village so long as he does care about anyone.

May this new government succeed! I am looking forward to seeing a better and rewarding future for Nigeria and Nigerians

Fellow Nigerians, its time to wake up. These people we are fighting over do not deserve our pity @ the least. They are the same people that were/are hell-bent on destroying us. The day we emancipate ourselves from "our brother/our people" mentality, the day Nigeria ceases to be a backward nation.

Lalasticlala, you no go vex o! This is an important message to all. Thanks in advance

leadership is a big part of our problem
the better! No one can save us but
ourselves.
So I come back to the young
suffering, unemployed and deprived
citizens who are first to to step up to
defend corruption, nepotism and theft
of our commonwealth because
someone accused is from their tribe,

because they have been promised a
token gift, well, now you know, your
condition will not change regardless of
whether the president, minister or
governor comes from your village so
long as he does care about anyone.
I have said it bfr that we must not thread the path of our forefathers. They made some unforgivable mistakes But it'll be a slap on us if we too fall victim of it... Let's love ourselves and fight for each other if not the pit that is ahead is as wide as anything one can imagine.
The other day, a freedom fighter set up a committee because of his own pocket only for another people to fight back. We should learn to love ourselves.
It is well oh


Note: Loving ourselves doesn't mean we should be shy from saying the truth, standing on the truth and going for the truth. loving ourselves doesn't mean we should be zombies!!!

Nonsense and partisan article. You listed past leaders and their villages how they are under developed. Guess you did not put mohammed buhari. Is he not a past leader ?go to his home town guess its like honkong or washington. What is diezani doing there? Guess she is a past leader. Your hatred for the past government will kill the author of this useless write up.

I never would be able to understand the rationale behind the 'dont touch my tribesman' mantra even when the accused is a known crook. The rubbish reached an embarassing peak within the last 5 years and I am tempted to believe what they say about Jonathan's lack of leadership skills causing a depressing division amongst Nigerian tribes.
