It has become an In dies epilepsy, the corrugated and dilapidated state of mind of this great nation (Nigeria).
Over a period of iron now, it WAS believed that Nigeria is the giant of Africa, unarguably yes, Nigeria was, when the ill intents of our leaders hasn’t grown ten-folds of feather, during the times of leaders like Late Chief Obafemi Awolowo, who happen to be the hero of the south westerners of Nigeria if not the whole of Nigeria but the righteous man’s hand of honor and integrity was cubbed by the giant gladiators of Nigeria’s resources.
During those times, even thou Nigeria as a nation was surviving based on ontological realities in such an attenuating manner but the state of the nation was far better than the current one.
If we happen to be a period guidance and studied the transition of power from the times of the then premiers to the recent times when we had Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, transited to Alh. Umar Musa Yar’adu, in a simultaneous manner due to the unlucky condition of health of the Hausa president who died withing a short period of time and the post got transited to the then vice president Goodluck Ebele Jonathan and now to the then military ruler President Muhamadu Buhari we would realize that during this power transition between this people the economic condition of the country is getting more and more attenuated, debilitating and reverbrating simultaneously.
It is not sacrosanct at all, how our leaders especially the leaders in the upper chamber of the country (SENATORS) engulfed themselves in a perilous and sardonic habit of monetary dissipation and squandering of the nations resources, indeed God has blessed this land and enriched it with uncountable favours, but the parasitic ways of our leaders has brought the whole nation and the citizens to a state of abject ululation. There is a saying which states “What is worth doing, is worth doing well”.
Ever since the ascension of President Muhamadu Buhari to the seat of governance in 2015, the man with vision, passion and goodwill for the acceleration of Nigeria’s economy has been traveling from one developed country to another to seek advice’s on the positivity of absolute change from the state of relunctancy and abject inertia to a developing one, yet some, ludicrous and sadistic humans who claimed to be leaders backbite, blackmail and negate the actions of the president.
We, the students are not molluscs who doesn’t have brains to understand the pedagogy of the recent times leaders, but it is very hideous for a cat to fight a lion. It is high time we start making standardised and progressive moves to stage our own impactions for the development of this nation, that is why a group of thoughtful, committed and patriotic Nigerian Students known as SAT (Students Advocate for Tax) has stood up amongst others to find solution to the degraded state of the nation by soliciting and imploring taxable citizens to pay their taxes, as many social amenities and infrastructures are done with the generated funds which are being remitted to the pocket of the FIRS. We believe a better Nigeria is achievable, through tax paying.
