Our Stuipd Fascination With Monarchs... Abolish It. by Zetra7: 3:41pm On Aug 25
For some, monarchs in Nigeria are to be exalted while for people like me, they ought to be abolished.
Gaining independence in the 1960, Nigeria tended towards a democratic set up just like colonial master (Britian) but moved rapidly through series of experimental rule to start leaning towards an American's style of government.

Why then do we want to fuse this type of government with another monarchical authorities.. This is over bloating our budgets and depleting the little resources left for development.

Kings and queens require huge maintenance, it's pathetic that these set of ordinary men made gods depends on the state institution to survive without the state leveraging on their authority for progress..(Evidence since 1960)

It's a cultural thing , I know but it should from either their pocket or the community that encourage it. As big as China and America, there is no single Monarch apart from the state yet they moved forward.

We don't need kings and queens in Nigeria, even in the UK, there is only one royal family with authority yet here we have over 500 kings in Nigeria and yet proudly debate those with first class status or those with latest rolls Royce or private jets (same issue of pastors).

I think we should start been serious as a Nation, we must accept where we are before we can get where we want to be, we are a very poor nation and therefore humility must reign.
