I have spent months pondering on the impact of politics on all citizens of the world. I concluded after a short while that the common humans are just pawns on the chess while nature is the chessboard.
I expressed my plights with friends in various continents, and we only concluded on a grand summary, that politics is absolutely the same all over the world; but on various different levels of gameplay difficulties.
The two dominate parties in the US (Republican and Democrats) has led the path and formed a kind of structure for modern world politics. A source in the US gave his accounts as follow:
"There’s nothing bad with been a republican actually Abraham Lincoln was a republican while Democrats were slave owners. The republican party is pro-life, pro-business, believes in conservative family values, promotes Christian values, the 2nd amendment which is the right to carry guns. Most businesses in the US are now leaving democratic controlled states and coming to Texas due to the conducive business atmosphere. In places like New York/Los Angeles, the cost of living is high, taxation is on the high side; hard to get business off the ground with low quality of life"
Down to Nigeria; politics is getting all crazier and corruption on the high side. The Centralization of power has provided a safe haven for corruption in all sectors, all the way to the grassroots. The 3 major tribes in Nigeria is indeed the source of the national problem source. The ruling power has moved from 2 major tribes for decades based on some part histories.
Based on my logical reasoning and opinion; I suppose it is high time Nigeria takes a leap from the so-called political party candidate who contests and spites themselves in the public while kissing and making-out behind close doors.
Maybe it's time to give the Igbo's a chance at last. We can't keep them under our roof when they truly do not want to be a member of the house. When a child disowns his father and mother, he can't be termed a bastard; maybe presumed a warrior.
It's time for new Nigeria; decentralization of power in a form of CONFEDERATION is the way to go because the active trending of corruption is as a result of overwhelming central power/control of the national wealth/resources. Funny, this central power is also loyal to the ruling party(s).
Greed/Corruption is the new virus that has successfully evaded the generations before us; now actively booming in our generation and beginning to infect the generation below us.
For fact's sake; gather 100 students from a school and ask them what they would like to become in the future; over 65% will tell you Governor/president/senator. And when you ask them why; most do not have a concrete reason while others will say, because "I want to be very rich"
CORRUPTION IS RIGHT UNDER OUR ROOF; BORING DEEP INTO OUR FOUNDATION.
