Have you ever wondered why Nigeria is still a developing country despite the natural resources she has in abundance? Nigeria has refused to grow into one of the leading economies despite the wealth of human and natural resources we possess.
The reasons are so clear that everyone, including a blind man, can see why.
There is nothing in this world that is made in Nigeria, even though it is Nigeria made, it is either Made in China or Ghana that you would see on it. Why are we not proud of our country? Though we are known as the largest and biggest in West Africa, but see how we are underrating ourselves.
Nigeria has been poorly ruled by bad omens; we won independence in 1960, fell into chaos in 1966, and suffered for good 50 years of political violence and civil war, had a free election in 2011, but the country still struggles under one of the worst conditions of corruption in the world. Corruption and greed can be attributed to the reasons we are worse than when we were under our colonial masters.
I was shocked the day I realised that phones and other electronic gadgets are sourced from Nigeria yet we are the highest buyers/users of the mobile phones. The developed countries exploit Nigeria to a fault, they come into our homes, collect these raw materials and assemble these mobile phones and sell them back to us at an exorbitant price. Why should that be?
Corruption has been the bane of our development since time immemorial. We are the main people that give ideas in making this wealth yet, the owners suffer in poverty.
Corruption has been mapped into our genes; nothing is free any more in Nigeria. In some Nigerian universities, you must bribe the people at the Exams and Records Department before they compile your results and submit your name to NYSC for the compulsory one year programme. Is it that Nigeria can never grow up and become a better country with the help of its people?
