I’m not surprised that the only reason why Nigeria
is in this thing called # Recession is because
somebody out there, some people somehow decided
to milk every thing Nigeria ever had and stash it
somewhere under their homes.
I’m a young Nigerian guy, I’ve not eaten good food
for days now, I walk into the bush to ease my self
on my way to Portharcourt and there I see a mother
with her 3 kids struggling to pick palm nuts, this
they’ll sell and use the money to buy food for the
I see that graduate, yes that graduate, she’s came
out with a a first-class degree in Accounting, yet
she roams the street in search for something to do,
her skin looking So worn, her clothes torn and her
shoes begging for help. She had a dream, now she’s
got the key, but little did she know our leaders have
changed the padlocks.
I see a mother crying because she’s got non to
offer her kids this morning be it food or money.
I see a father swimming in the gutter simply
because he wants to be able to fend for his family.
When those that hardly lift a thing are somewhere
living in excess. When the funds that are needed to
Build infrastructures, industries, public health
facilities, pay workers, revive the fallen companies
like the DSC are squandered on things that matter
The truth is that I wouldn’t have written this but
seeing a married man walk over 8 miles all because
he has no money to pay for his transport fair is so
They claim to be sanitizing the society of every
corruption in it, they claim to recover loots, yet we
have nothing to live on. Now millions of dollars
which equates billions of Naira has been discovered
and I would want to see what it would be used for.
My country is not poor, what we have and what has
been the problem in Nigeria is a system filled with
People who would at all cost, destroy the good mind
of a good leader by imposing their evil seeds in the
name of policy.
I still demand a better Nigerian I still want the poor
people like my self to smile from the things we can
find in our country.
Where are the jobs they promised?
Where is the good life they promised?
Where is the #5000 monthly allowance they
What happens to their words condemning those who
went abroad for treatment? Aren’t they the one still
in London for some organ transplant?
They spice their tongues and come up with good
Such lies that made my people give off a good
leader at the site of the so-called APC rice.
I hate crying early in the morning, I hate hearing the
pains of my fellow Nigerians. The tears of a poor
mother as she nods her head having realized she’s
got absolutely nothing to offer her kids.
In their name are mansions, mansions with no
occupants in them, in their homes are billions with
no one to eat them, imagine a man with 3 kids living
in a mansion of 32 rooms when Kunle and co are
out there in the cold, under the bridge for shelter.
I am tired of this thing called Country.
Someone please make me an assassin.
Someone please give me a rifle.
Could someone please give me a sniper.
