The price good men and women pay for not being in politics, is to be governed by those they are better than.
“The worst illiterate is the political illiterate. He hears nothing, sees nothing, take no part in political life.
He does not seem to know that the cost of living, the price of beans, of flour, of house rent, of medicine all depend on political decisions.
He even prides himself on his political ignorance, sticks out his chest and says he hates politics.
He does not know, the imbecile, that from his political non-participation comes the prostitute, and the abandoned child, the robber and worst of all, corrupt officials, the lackeys of exploitative multinational corporations ‘’ Bertolt Brecht
Tell me why we should abandon the most important aspect of our life to visionless class of people that call themselves ‘Politicians’. Today in Nigeria ,the Political Class has made us hopeless,frustrated , less human,beggars without access to bank loan at single digit,no access to free medicare,no access to quality education,no access to electricity,no access to water,no access to food.no access to shelter and no access to anything that would make life meaningful.Go to the street and ask young people this question: What has Government done for you? You will be shocked that many young people have not felt the existence of government and what to expect from those in power.Since after the civil war,majority of Nigerian soldiers that fought against Biafrans regretted their actions as Nigeria government has never treated them like human except few top ranking Officers.The masses have lost confidence with anything Government and have decided to embrace God for survival Hence,the widespread of Churches everywhere ,whereas factories are shutting down by the day.However,the end solution lies in all of us getting involved in party politics and general election.Self Determination is a political process,however ,we must begin now to make our life better.
All of us must get involved in politics for the sake of our Children.
