In today’s Nigeria, to be patriotic is to step back and understand that the only way Nigeria has any chance of ‘redemption’ is to kill corruption by all means, and bring many people to book. Anonymity will not do.
Many of the things that have been returned by the corrupt officials are mind-boggling. Yesterday when the British PM said Nigerians are Fantastically Corrupt, some people were offended, many blamed the British for harbouring corrupt politicians – all well and good.
President Buhari agrees PM David Cameron was telling the truth about Nigeria politicians. Here, President Buhari made it clear that there will be jail time for the looters – that’s comforting.
For those Nigerians who have issues with the ongoing EFCC investigation, think about this: Uganda with population of 39M people had one radiation machine. Bad news, that broke down last month, hence it was on the news. I hope they have fixed it.
(This is not about Uganda, but to put Nigeria corrupt sorry case into perspective.)
Meanwhile, in Nigeria when a public figure (his or her name hasn’t been revealed) was completely bored of their mind, he chose to have one MRI scan at the expense of the public for his own private clinic – what do we say to that?
This is what PM David Cameron said yesterday that prompted the above video, basically to show that DC said what Nigerians are well aware of.
