ARE WE CURSED?
What is really the problem with Nigeria? Why is it that things don't just seem to be moving forward for good for us.Are we such a cursed nation? I am tempted to want to give in to the school of thought that strongly believes that a demonic cabal is happy holding us down. Bernad Malamud aptly summed up the Nigerian complexities in the following words: ''In a sick country,every effort to cure its sickness is an affront on those who profit from its illness.'' Is it not so disheartening that all the much talk about Millions and Billions of Naira allegedly being spent by the Government in only God knows what,the citizenry is yet to feel any of its impact.Darkness looms larger today than ever before.Our security is at the whims of armed criminals.The school Teachers have since gone on strike.No one up there seems bothered that the future of our Children are being toyed with. Where have we gone wrong? Is it a curse that our fore fathers and fathers had opted to be Nigerians on creation day? Should we still be expecting the Messiah(s) as our present generation of leaders have shamelessly and woefully failed us?
