Thank you JBM! Why is it that when it is election time then people remember the less privileged? Every president's wife in the US has a platform that is hers to carry out, currently Ms. Obama's platform is fight childhood Obesity like Nancy Regan's was fight drugs with the slogan Just Say No. I CANNOT for the life of me remember the platform of ANY Nigerian president's wife, however I remember that when it's re-election time, they start coming around with their bags of rice, free umbrella with the president's face emblazon on it. They think Nigerians are stupid, blind, deaf etc. This is the equivalent of France's Marie Antionette's "let them eat cake" and guess what the French did to her...of course, that wouldn't happen in Nigeria, we will each the rice and be grateful for the crumps.

We don't ask much from our politicians therefore we don't get much in return. We accept a bag of rice INSTEAD of asking pertinent questions from candidates about their agenda, their plans for the country, CONCRETE plans not just the same old generic "I will stop corruption" yeah, HOW? What will you put in motion to stop bribery and corruption?

IF somebody asks that woman what her husband is about as a leader, she can't articulate it! She probably wasn't even there with the truck sef to hand out the rice, probably sent a couple of peons to do it.

I want to celebrate Nigeria's 50th year but I can't! We dey blow money on parties, what are we celebrating? Our great progress since the British gave us the reins of power? The great progress made in establishing law and order? great infrastures? get social programs for the poor, the old?

make i go jare!

I don't know if this went through before but it bares repeating:

Na wetin we dey celebrate?

Did I not just hear that a bomb went off in Abuja?

This literally brought tears to my eyes. So Nigerians have become cows or animals? And people are scrambling for a bag of rice? Wow Nigeria, wow! This is just too sad. Poverty is a major biatch!!

May God save us and may we all go out and vote in a leader/leaders that will steer our country in the right direction.

I don't mind to belittle the reality of hunger and poverty in nigeria truth is, not all those fighting to collect that free bag of rice are actually hungry- some of them will take the bag and sell it off. Remember that scheme obasanjo launched early in his presidency to give every poor person 9000 naira? In the end, the scheme was hijacked by people who did not deserve the money-I remember trying to persuade my cousin not to go and collect the money as she was already working and her persence would prevent the really deserving from collecting the money- did she listen? NO! Just look at the policeman who anonymous@10.05 spotted collecting his share of free bag of rice
