The same educationally disadvantaged North now has the best citizens to be so appointed. The same Justice System which is supposed to uphold Fairness and Justice now beclouded with bias and sentiment. What a Country!


It seems what divides us is stronger than what unites us. Let’s not pretend, Nigeria can’t work under a system that allows such a lopsided appointment to hold. Where is the fairness that is expected from the leadership structures? Where are the southern politicians that are supposed to be challenging such systems? It seems they are happy and celebrating the four (4) slots that was given to their region.


The governmental system of Nigeria k*lls the hope for a united country….for a “One Nigeria”. Even after the Incumbent President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration is gone, if the system is not charged and a new president is allowed to behave like the Buhari unopposed or unrestricted, then it wouldn’t be difficult or wrong to say that Nigeria will nev£r know peace, prosperity and unity… Untill the Right Thing is Done.
