Nigeria Is Not The Hope For The Future by VickJames(m): 8:03pm On Nov 10, 2015
The understanding of rudiment economics and political happenings in the world today will make you understand why people around the world fight for their own country. even the bible supported the creation of different countries in the bible.

The way the country is been managed and structured, we will end up lesser than a 3rd world country.

First of all, the number of people that are dependent on a particular resources are far too much. with nothing to bring to the table. these people who provide these things are suffering and feeling impoverish. take a cab to these oil producing areas, you will see their level of poverty. these people that we should term lucky, are now the unlucky ones. i have been opportuned to work with a company who drill oil and lay pipelines in these communities. These people have no water, they lack basic necessities of life. their schools are so backward. they only come and fight for indigene money. the meagre sum they are given, they even fight over it. these goes to show how this country cannot work. you will say these communities have been compensated. really? how much do you make from these communities and how much do you give their leaders? how much destruction have you caused them. this isnt just the fault of these community leaders, it is the fault of the system. if the owner of the land determines what happens to his land, atleast, he will speaking in thesame gathering as bill gates and other gates in the world. but no, you come his land, you drill oil, you didnt even pay for the land you grabbed, you use soldiers to scare them away. after drilling, you pollute their environment and you leave.

These soldiers that you station in these areas who are basically from the north, sleep with their women because they are poor and dont know what is happening. the truth is, the places where these resources are been drilled, the people do not really know the favour they are giving to this country. it is just a few of them who have travelled out of the community and read news that really know what is happening.

Can you imagine a country where the resources was used to build places like lagos and abuja. Abuja was once a very dry and arid land but now, everyone is moving his HQ there. what happened? they told us they want to build a new capital territory there. but the truth is, the north wants a new lagos in their domain. where they will be able to lord over what happens. they chose abuja just because if it was taken to kaduna, it would have been a daring move. so they switched to a place that looked like the midpoint.

have you ever wondered what is happening with the quarrying industries in the southwest and the solid mineral industries in the north, especially the gold in sokoto state? you see the hausa traders sell gold and jewelries to you. do you think they imported it from mecca? the solid mineral industry is booming business in the north and they wont want anyone in south south or south east to come close to the industry, why? it is our industry? check the communities where these industries are making wave, you will see heavy machineries and rich men. what happened to one nigeria when it came to gold?

about the chad basin, a hausa man in this forum said if oil is discovered in large quantities in chad basin, the government will consider regional or federalism. what arrant nonsense and parasitic statement. this is so unlawful and in any sane world, the man should be stoned to death with big sticks. this goes to show you how the country is built on thiefery and parasitism.

about the quarrying and other mineral resources in the south: do you know that many yoruba millionaires we have now are making so much money from quarrying in the southwest. have you seen any man from southeast or south south getting any permit from the government to do quarrying or mine gold from ilesha in osun state? i dont think so. last few months contracts were given to some companies to start the mining of mineral resources in these areas. the men preferred to give their lands to hausa, yoruba and chinese but they did not think of these brothers in south south or south west. these are thesame people saying this country should be one. why? last month, the governor of borno state said he is looking at investing in the limestone in ebonyi state. very good!

this is one nigeria that innoson has been building vehicles in nigeria for some years now but the governors in other states have not looked into patronising 'made in nigeria' goods. but they will shout and scream that we are dumping made in nigeria cement, made in nigeria nonsense. but a made in nigeria car isnt good for us. is that not bad enough?

the government of nigeria know that the igbos have been into importation of goods for a long time. they know all these. whenever they raise the issue of river niger dredging, NTA will show us some people standing and saying it is underway and when we get there, we will not see anything. but these igbos remain one of the highest users of the sea. why make them run to lagos to do business? simple, to make them depend on other regions for survival. you might say why didnt import and send these goods to the east, really? do you know how many trailers that skid and fall every week in the name of carrying goods from one state to the other? this country is cheating on its people. igbo people do not need your presidency, have you seen igbos taken any of its people serious when it comes to presidency? no. why? we just dont believe in it.

the country called nigeria will continue to fall basically because the ideology in the heads of the other tribes is so different that when an igbo thinks that this is the best way to go, the other people will say it is not the best way to go. is that not redundancy? this system breeds chop i chop tendencies because he knows that when he leaves, he will not come back there again even his brother will not smell there. this country lacks patriotism. is it not the same obasanjo era that ibeto nearly went bankrupt because he was doing thesame business with an hausa man? if not for God and good thinking, he would have sleeping in a rehab now.

Nigeria is not getting better. do you think the soldiers are really winning this war? have you been watching the video clips released by these bokoharam men? our soldiers just release pictures, but these men attack our soldiers with cameras in their hand. this goes a long way to show you how brazen these people are.

do you think as a southerner, you will own a jerrycan of crude if oil were to be found in the north? will your brother, sister or family enemy own a jerry can of crude, talkless of owning 80percent? your answer is a good as mine.

A country that still believes in foreign investors to come invest in her economy. Is this country not a joke? Many local investors cry everyday that they dont any form of government backing. No policy to protect local industries. the last time they protected the locals was in the 70s when they sold all the foreign companies to themselves at a very cheap rate before the other people will be able to get their brains back to order. the people in the east. Now, the people in the east are now owning local industries, they have refused to do what they did in the 70's. chinese and lebanese use and misuse human beings and dump them whenever they deem fit. protect your local industries because they dont have anywhere to run to except their country home but no, they continue to go advertise our illiteracy by calling whites to still use us and dump us. how much do you think is retained in this country when these white men gain from us, nothing but the meagre sum they pay the workers.

Are you safe as a nigerian?
is your future bright as a nigerian?
are you respected for being nigerian?
how do you see yourself as a nigerian?
do you think the next tribe loves you in nigeria?
what do you think nigeria will be in the next 20years?

no other sector in this country we can come together and raise from its ashes in this country except oil. is it cocoa, groundnut, gold dust, or bitumen?

what are their economic importance now in the world. Your bet is as good as mine, the world is growing them, themselves.
