Indeed calamity has befallen us, everyday by day it gets harder. All the commodity in the market are overpriced. The chances of survival are slim. It seems there is no hope.The more we look the lesser we understand. Where are we going and where are we heading to. If a brick-layer who learnt how to lay blocks for a building starts teaching mathematics in school. If a soldier now posits himself as a civilian to practice democracy. If a medical doctor now becomes the minister for labour. If a lawyer by profession becomes the minister of power, housing, and works. If the number one citizen of a country is been accused of not possessing a senior secondary school certificate talk more of been an a graduate.
There a lot of ifs if am to continue writing them. Social injustice kills the future, nepotism is a disease and tribalism is incurable in our present community.
    Nigeria a country of over 170 million peoples with over 25o ethnic groups has been hijacked by few. The present day government in Nigeria is what i described as "the sun that rose in the morning". I have so many question to ask about this great country Nigeria. In October 1st 1960 we gain our independent to foresee and control our affairs. It is very sad and shameful that the whole our country are been played including those who thought that they are the players. There are high rate of hunger in the land and crime is on the increase. People need to survive and for that reason they resolve to crime.
  The Nigerian government treat her citizen like animals, the Nigerian government are no respecter of human rights and i ask is Nigeria caused or are we the cause?. Our universities are depreciating both in academic excellence and infrastructure wise, We spent so much attending the university to study. I always find it difficult to explain why after school no job. They will always tell us to go to school when the government cannot pay our fathers and mothers salaries, yet everyday you hear that Mr A stole billions of naira and is been probed.     
    Is there any better politician in Nigeria?. Do we have any good leader in Nigeria ?. The answer is no because they all lack commitment to the people. When the federal government keep on making policy which will affect the country negatively, it becomes so difficult for the people to cope. If you put a square peg in a round hole it will not fit in. And my people will always say if you don't know where rain started beating you neither will you know when it stooped. The power sector is a no go area. Nigeria is blessed with with enough resources both material and human resources. Sometimes i feel there is a force in any public office in Nigeria that manipulates our leaders to ignore the right thing. What is drawing the federal government back in telling every to build and manage their power sector. While is the federal government delaying to restructure Nigeria which was a core topic in their manifesto. While is the federal government scared of devaluation  of powers to state level. All this question should be answered  by those clamoring for status quo. Tell me how can there be change when you refuse to move from your old paradigm to a new one. There is chaos in this country starting from number one person to the last. The question is how do we survive this misery?. Have God forsaken us?. There is lack of trust in the land. An Igbo man don't trust a Yoruba man neither an Hausa man. All we do is to put a smile behind a sharp teeth pretending that all is well whereas inside we die in silence. 
  We all need to work together to make Nigeria a better place irrespective of your tribe. A person who has the quality of a leader who must see himself as a servant of the people, who truly believes in the unity of  our dear nation Nigeria if not our country will collapse. Even our leaders that felt they will not be affected probably they have stack our money in foreign banks and their families lives abroad. No matter how hard you try, you will never cease to be a Nigerian. You cannot become one of them, youn will always be a Nigerian. Whether  Hausa, Igbo or a Yoruba it does not count.
  This is our country, our land, our heritage, and our pride. Why are we bent on destroying a land so enviable by the outside community that God entrusted in our hands to establish. Why are we so self centered?. Why is selflessness not in our blood ? Why Nigerians scared of development?. Why is our leaders so scared of building a nation where all and sundry will thrive without discriminating one another.
  Have we not one father?. Did one God create us ?. Why, then, do we break faith with one another, profaning the covenant of our ancestor?.(M alachi 2:10-11)
 We need to give ample opportunity to everyone no matter your state of origin as we dont know from whom the blessings will come forth.              
2019: Ebonyi, 100% votes belong to Buhari if he contests – APC On November 9, 20171:35 pmIn News, PoliticsComments The All Progressives Congress (APC), Ebonyi chapter, says it will support the re-election of President Muhammadu Buhari in 2019. “The Ebonyi chapter of APC would throw its full weight behind the President should he declare interest to run again,’’ Acting Chairman of the party, Chief Eze Nwachukwu, said on Thursday. Buhari Nwachukwu told newsmen in Abakaliki that the party took the decision after close assessment of the achievements of the present administration especially in job creation, economic revitalisation, agricultural revolution and war against corruption. According to him, it is natural for the party to back Buhari, so as to consolidate on the gains so far achieved. The chairman said the national leadership of the APC should prevail on the President to go for second term. “We have assessed the achievements of the present administration and have come to an undeniable truth that Mr. President has done so much in areas of physical infrastructure, war against financial graft, job creation, economic repositioning among others. “It is only natural that the President is given another opportunity to consolidate on the gains so far made in enthroning genuine democracy and putting the nation’s economy on the paths of economic growth. “We are going to mobilize both party and non party members to support Buhari for second term. “We are only praying that Mr. President will listen to the popular voices calling on him to throw himself in for re-election in order to complete the good work that his administration has started, ” Nwachukwu said. He claimed that the APC was `robbed’ of electoral victory in 2015, but assured that it would have a “clean sweep at the governorship and presidential polls in the state come 2019. “We are set to take over the Government House in Abakaliki by 2019 and APC will have 100 per cent votes cast in both the governorship and presidential elections. “Ebonyi belongs to APC and I am saying that APC will take 100 per cent of votes cast for the Presidential and governorship polls and we are going to prove this fact in 2019.”
