Nigeria – The scene of Animal Farm

Nigeria a vivid example of Animal Farm.
A Nation in tears, the youths are confused, bribed and turned to thugs.

Now, comrades, what is the nature of this life of ours? Let us face it: our lives are miserable, laborious, and short. We are born, we are given just so much food as will keep the breath in our bodies, and those of us who are capable of it are forced to work to the last atom of our strength, and the very instant that our usefulness has come to an end we are slaughtered with hideous cruelty. — George Orwell.

 No one in Nigeria knows the meaning of happiness.

Corrupt politicians are the only real enemy we have. Remove them from the scene, and the root cause of sufferings, underdevelopment, and abuse is abolished forever.  

Somehow it seemed as though the farm had grown richer without making the animals themselves any richer — except, of course, for the pigs and the dogs” —  George Orwell.

The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which.”  —  George Orwell. 

Nigerian politicians are the only bureaucrats that spend their tenures developing other countries.  They do not work, they refused to develop their own country, they are shameless, they lack intellect. Yet they are our Counsellors, Chairmen’s, Governors, Senators, Reps and Presidents. They gave us a bare minimum that will prevent us from starving, and the rest they keep and squander them in Dubai, UK, USA, Australia etc.

60 years after independence, we are the caricature of the world. Heavens didn’t deny us resources or manpower rather our greedy, selfish and evil politicians realized that developing other countries are their patriotic duties. “They serve the interest of no Nigerian except themselves.”

“The Seven Commandments:
All Nigerian politicians are corrupt.
The senators and Reps are all corrupt too.
Nigerian police and army are not our friends.
All Nigerians should prepare to vote them out.
Nigerian youths standstill and standby.
No old man or woman shall rule over us again.
No godfathers shall dictate to us again.

New Anthem:

This is our country.

We deserve electricity.

We deserve good roads.

We deserve good health care.

We deserve good governance.

We deserve a good life and

We deserve to be happy.
