Real Buhari and GEJ: One hardcore, the other clueless, take your pick

The Real Buhari video clip on youtube is expected especially for the flimsy minded who only want quick fix for all of our issues.

In 53:34 narrator posed a question:

“Does Buhari posses the temperament to be Nigeria’s President in a globalised 21st century?”

And for GEJ being seen as a saint in comparison to Buhari, very typical of Nigerians, being completely off the track asking helpless citizens daft question like:

” Would you like to be beheaded in public or choked to death in your room?”

Why do we have to choose between two terrible people. Well, if we must then we will.

Buhari is hardcore no doubt and well deserved the video highlighting his human rights violations, plenty of them.

Now, I would love to see one thing that GEJ has done since his time in office that makes him any better than Buhari in terms of human rights protection. His daughter’s wedding was two weeks after Chibok girls were kidnapped, before and after that thousands have been slaughtered.

48:39 talked about gender equality and the fact Buhari didn’t allow his wife on campaign trail. Yea, the old man is what he is, you are not going to change him today.

It would be nice to hear from Nigerians, if there has ever been one instance that Madam Patience Jonathan has shown any example worth emulating in public? The last straw for me was when she sat at the Aso Rock calling the parents of the abducted girls for a meeting? Who does that? Subjecting grieving mothers to yet another torture – power drunk took humanity from her.

So if Madam P was locked up for the remainder of GEJ in office, would anyone genuinely miss her?

We need women, more women to represent us so as to become better people, better neighbours, better Nigerians – we don’t need power-drunk women, we don’t need women who are busy demonstrating everything wrong that only confirm women are less of.

I believe the most dangerous aspirant of the two is the one with no ideal, hiding behind others so he takes no responsibility. GEJ does this a lot, he is busy going from one religious leader to another basically playing on the ignorance the populace.

Any leader licking boots of celebrity pastors as GEJ is doing can not successfully lead such a diverse nation as Nigeria because he will sure blame all on God and devil when in fact we are all on earth.

Looking behind Buhari, I see Fashola of Lagos, Ameachi of Rivers, Aregbesola of Osun, and hopefully El-Rufai in Kaduna and a few others – we have seen what these guys can do.

Looking at Jonathan – I see someone who will continue to be indifference to everything, a leader who nominated main murder suspect of federal ex Finance minister, Bola Ige to be Osun governor. I see a president who pardoned a criminal days after he was convicted of money laundering, that was GEJ buddy Diepreye Alamieyeseigha.

I see Nigeria being in much more terrible situation for the next four years because  there really is no red button to press so our issues can be evaporated. I see a president wasting our limited resources on useless yearly pilgrimage – Mecca + Jerusalem, to show that we are religious when our attitude is anything but.

“Does Jonathan Goodluck posses the temperament to be Nigeria’s President in a globalised 21st century?”

Temperament? Plenty of it as he had 8 year of practice to be indifference and religious puppet, with extra daily dosage of Valium added – yes, he will lead us right to the ditch.

When great mothers turn sluts

I am always fascinated by the number of people who would talk about how smart their mothers were and same people would require plenty of convincing that women in general should not be seen as less of because that is just not true.

Since I didn’t know any of my grandparents, I was curious as what my parents thought of their own mothers. Rather than my mother giving a yes or no answer, she responded “Moomi Abeni, omo k’ulodo” with the look that suggested …need I say more? Those were praise words that Yoruba would only give to people they greatly admire.

My father talked about his mother as being quite young, in her early 50s when she died of something that sounded preventable. However, he talked about my grandmother as a resourceful mother. That it was after she was long gone that the family realised how much she took on. The drama of her passing was largely based on debates of how to divide those ‘little’ things she did amongst seven people.

So really, they both had great mothers.

I have been blessed with many men, nephews, in-laws, countless of uncles and of course my father etc they all boast about how great their mothers were so why do we have a society where value of women tend to be reduced to being sexual partners?

A few weeks ago, I was chatting with my nephew who is 21, he said something that was largely stereotype about women’s ability so I ask him, “would you say your mother is like that?” He hesitated and said a firm “No.” I assured him to be free to put me in my place but here his mother is my sister and he can be honest if truly my sister was the way he described other women. At the end of our talk, he saw sense, well at least that was the impression I got.

You can imagine my excitement yesterday when I came across this video clip of Peruvian women doing amazing job to send message home. Mothers of recurring sex offenders were approached to participate in the campaign to stop men harassing women on the road.

Now I know everyone in Nigeria is religious and yet we have high rate of rape and harassment by children who claimed their parents were just the best.

So rapists and those whose preferred way of have good time is to take mickey out of women of all ages around them are really not alien from outer space, they are people who pretended to be one thing at home and a completely opposite when on the road – out of sight of parents or family that could caution them.

Watch the reactions of these guys in Peru when they realised it was their own mothers they were catcalling…

 

 

The reaction of this Mother-son interactions on the street of Lima, Peru is very similar to what would likely have happened say, if filmed on a Lagos street.

Tackling sexual harassment and rape case need every mother to tackle it right from their home.

Yellow fever vaccination at Lagos international airport

It is impossible not to notice the improvement of the departure terminals at the Murtala Mohammed International Airport (MMIA) Lagos. For a second, one is filled with joy and reassurance that we’ve got what it takes to make this country a great one we can all be proud of.

And of course, with this spirit one has to put aside the fact that all passengers, passing through this airport in their thousands have always had to pay their airport taxes – we show appreciation anyways, hoping the trend will continue.

At MMIA, it is a different story every time one passes through even with everything done right, there is no guarantee one would not be harassed.

Over the years I have noticed how people tend to put themselves at the mercies of the airport staff that will eventually lead to bribery.

No doubts Nigerians loved to carry more than their baggage allowance, normally this would not be allowed in most airports, but in Nigeria, you would be allowed, just need to pay up so in this instance I think it is the citizens encouraging bad behaviour.

Also, about carrying food items. All countries have their rules about what can be allowed in terms of food product. The officers at the airport know this, however anyone can carry just about anything through MMIA, you only need to pay up – your trouble on the other end.

Why do we find it so hard to comply with simple rules? This is not excusing the shameless officers at the airport but we the citizens must try not to encourage this bribery culture, in the first place.

What has yellow fever vaccination got to do with it?

Last month Richard was excited to be invited to Lagos for a day, to do some infographic work for a consulting firm. His client is a global firm with long-term existence in Nigeria.

‘You’ll love it’ I assured Richard. He’s only in Lagos for one day so mostly from airport to hotel visit. He knew quite a bit about Lagos but as a visitor for the first time, sometimes no one can really tell everything that might go right or wrong but it is incredible that you can safely jump into an Avis taxi from MMIA now to Lagos mainland knowing you are safe.

Richard went and had amazing time with his client and thought everyone he met were incredible. Him and a couple of other Oyinbos were the foreigners, other guys in their tens were all Nigerians, he was impressed. Had a successful meeting and was invited back to help with more projects.

One thing though, he had to pay a bribe at the MMIA. “Why?” I asked him, “Because I didn’t have my Yellow Fever vaccination”

Richards shrugged his shoulders, thought the bribery for not being vaccinated was weird but nothing more to it.

Well, the bribery just confirmed a lot that he has read about Nigeria.

I wonder, how is the airport officers being bribed going to magically take away the fact that Richard wasn’t vaccinated? YF vaccination is expected when visiting a place like Nigeria to prevent visitors from getting sick.

Given Richard will be visiting again, I pleaded that he gets his YF vaccination done given the shameless officials no opportunity to ask for bribes. Very likely they would but we would see what for.

Ex President OBJ changing lane, Bishop Oyedepo opening the gate of hell: Cause for celebrations

Ex President OBJ defection to APC is a predictable one. Anyone who has been following the drama of Nigeria politics would not be surprised that given the old man, did not succeed in having his way with GEJ would eventually lead him to leaving PDP.

Not about anyone of us, more about power struggle.

After all Baba Iyabo is a Yoruba man, Kaka ki Kiniun s’akapo ekun, olode a lo lototo –  instead of a tiger to be custodian for a lion, they’d rather hunt independently.

No one is fooled by the defection, if OBJ was allowed, we would have had our very own Mugabe. GEJ being where he is today was not without GEJ firm support. He was the one that made Yar’Adua presidency possible despite knowledge of his health condition – shame on all of them for playing politics with the well-being of Nigerians.

I believe every word that Iyabo Obasanjo said about her father “We, your family, have borne the brunt of your direct cruelty and also suffered the consequences of your stupidity but got none of the benefits of your successes. Of course, anyone around you knows how little respect you have for your children.”

Now, the exciting bits for Nigerians:

Whether we care to admit it or not, religion plays a major role in Nigeria politics and for the most part not at all positive one – It is a cycle of repeated mediocre being allowed to rule us in the name of Jesus Christ or Mohammed in the case of the northern folks.

Words thrown back and forth with Bishop Oyedepo and ex-president is exciting – believe it or not, something great is going to come out of this. Just pray it continues.

For one, Nigeria celebrity pastors such as Oyedepo are untouchable, they communicate directly with God above on behalf of millions of Nigerians who can not afford to send their children to the church’s private universities but listened to this guy telling them GEJ is the God chosen.

Oyedepo knows his ‘onions’ after all he was one of the ‘holy’ men that accompanied GEJ to the Wailing Wall of Jerusalem, and he is not about to bite the fingers that fund his private unis.

GEJ resent visit to Oyedepo’s church is expected. What I don’t get was Oyedepo’s saying Gate of Hell would be released on people who did not vote Jonathan, Really?

What do you call what the folks in the north-east experiencing now, Gate of Heaven?

Get a grip, we know all your tactics, Nigeria is already going through hell and no one is scared by you swearing. Actually, Yoruba swear much more than praying!

Oyedepo is not alone on this, GEJ has already captured the heart of Adeboye of the Redeemed Church, and the other bling, bling guy of Warri.

It’s unfortunate that folks are having a go at one another defending Oyedepo and OBJ while we should really be rejoicing that finally someone, who by the way not a saint, has decided to tell the truth for once.

Like many of our many ex leaders, OBJ must do many more to earn any credit, calling a shot on Bishop Oyedepo is a good start.

I can’t wait to see another top dog from within the same circle to put all these religious maniacs in their places.

Does this make Gen. Buhari a saint and the saviour we’ve been waiting for? Not in the least. He is the best we’ve got among the two imposed on us, but must earn the respect of Nigerians.

Until then…

 

Home ownership and the pressure to live up

There is always some unspoken expectations that one is meant to live up to. Grow up, get college education, marry, have children and own a home – not necessarily in this particular order.

In some part of the world, there is a system in place to assist working citizens get on a property ladder through loans if one has a job to guarantee debt repayment. This system sometimes assumes that all adults have common sense and would only take on appropriate debts they could afford.

In Nigeria, this is a whole different story. There is no established mortgage loan except for those who work for the government and a few well-run private companies. So if a Nigerian has a home, there is a very good chance it is owned outright as you get to build the house from scratch.

This could be exciting opportunity to design one’s own home to taste. However, it also means that to own a home is an exceptional privilege as Nigeria goes, in most cases life savings have gone into it.

A friend, shortly after started working, joined a micro finance group whereby a set monthly deductions is taking from her salary. The idea was that when it gets to her turn to collect the sum, it will be substantial enough to take on a significant project.

Hannah is a teacher, work full-time with three children and renting 2 rooms (not to be confused with 2 bedroom). She is a content person and happy with her family. She wanted to use the huge chunk of money to buy a land and build a foundation on it – this is what she feels she is expected to do, husband works at a nearby Teaching Hospital as a lab assistant and has been spending quite a lot of his income to get higher qualification, he would not be able to contribute.

“I’d use this money to start up a business as a means to generate extra income, and the business will serve as an investment to add on to – this is likely to make more financial sense than embarking on a project that one is well aware it’s not going to get off the ground.” I said.

“Why do you bother about what people say anyway?” I asked Hannah. Hannah worries that she would end up like her own parents who are in their 70s and still renting. Her parents made a choice to spend their money on educating their children. They may still be renting but they had no burden from any of the children and happy with minimal old age stress.

If it’s any consolation, without those many years of renting of about half a dozen houses while I was little,  how would I ever get to meet so many interesting co-tenants? They, without a doubt make my stories a lot more colourful.

Not so bad.

One good turn

It’s no longer news that the likes of Mr Chameleon ex Governor Diepreye Alamieyeseigha who escaped Europe in 2005 to avoid being prosecuted for money laundering or the other guy who became the governor of Delta state shortly after being  sacked for stealing at a UK DIY store  are easy ice breaker wheVn meeting strangers from out of country for the first time.

Despite all these corrupt public officials and many 419 email scams, there lie many, many Nigerians who are still very trustworthy and take pride in their work.

Professor Tim worked at an African Literature department in a UK university. When he was a young associate in the early 1970s, he visited the then University of Ife (now Obafemi Awolowo University) to study more about Nigeria literature. He was there for some time, a year, I think. During that time he had a steward called Patrick, who was slightly younger than Tim. They forged good friendship. Time came for Tim to leave, he left and that was it.

In 2005, I happened to be in the same place with Tim so he recounted his memory of Ile Ife, he spoke fondly of Patrick and wondered how he was doing. Perhaps he’s gone back to the east. Tim was just retiring from his professorship and would like to get to help Patrick financially, if he happens to need any.

A few years later, Patrick and Tim lost contact once again, they both have relied on letters – the last letter Tim had received was not particularly a happy one, he was concerned for his old friend, he asked if I could help locate him, again.

This time, it was a bit different as the popular market of Old Buka had been moved to a new location within the campus called New Market. The moving was very significant as it meant those short on cash were not able to relocate to the new area.

My sister was the No. 1 Lady Detective Agent – no one has seen Patrick in a long time even well before the move. Given the relatively small community nature, eventually after three weeks we found Patrick in his house bed-riding recovering from okada (motorcycle) accident.

He was like many ordinary Nigerian caught up in a lawless society. Knowing that he would not be able to afford the relocation to the New Market, he had used his savings to purchase a motorcycle to carry passengers, hoping his daily bread would be secured that way.

One day on his way back from dropping a passenger at the Sabo Market, a private car hit him unaware, sent him flying off his motorbike. Given it is during the day, and witnessed by many passersby, the driver of the car behaved responsibly and paid the initial hospital bill, then disappeared into the thin air.

Patrick narrated his story with shaky voice, a sixty something years old man who has been working from his teenage years (that’s very common for the Igbos around my town) and now at the mercy of samaritans. He was ashamed to hear from Tim but glad anyways that he still thought of him.

The friends were later reunited.

Regardless of the terrible news about Nigeria, Patrick is a reminder for Tim that there are plenty of decent everyday people in all of our cities,  going about their daily businesses – it was this mindset that inspire the strength to reunite friends.

Nigeria – 34:15 is where we come in

Has President Jonathan done enough to rescue the Chibok girls or curb insurgency in the northeast? While many Nigerians live in denial, many people both home and abroad can see clearly that Nigeria  government is reluctant to do all that is necessary to stop Boko Haram.

Too busy with election campaign, incompetence, ignorance, indifference, waiting for others to rescue us?  –  reasons best known to President Jonathan and his followers.

34:15 is about Nigeria Boko Haram and how we are doing so far from the outsiders point of view,  accurate assertion?

 

 

Educating African grandmothers inspired by Priscilla Sitienei of Kenya

Embracing second chance. Who says those that missed out the first time around are too old to be educated? Gogo Priscilla Sitienei is a living evidence to education being life long adventure meant to benefit all ages.

“The only person who is educated is the one who has learned how to learn and change.” Carl Rogers.

Watching Gogo, I can only imagine her curious mind sprung to life. I know too well how many African mothers who missed out first time around adored education, in fact it is those who fall into this category that would easily forgo social life to educate their children including their girls.

My maternal grandmother was the sixth of seven wives, she had five surviving children with my mother being the second child, by the time mother came along she had no chance – not even a day of formal education. All her younger siblings had the best of education Nigeria has to offer at the time.

On many occasion, my mother would say ‘aimowe f’iya je mi’ – being uneducated deprived me of many things (sort of). Not being able to read and write bothered her the most.

She especially disliked having to get others read personal message.

A few years ago, after being assessed by the doctor. Dr. P turned to me to explain my mother’s health condition, my mother sat quietly, she didn’t interrupt but I could tell she was not pleased. As I tried to explain to her, she said to be quiet and faced the doctor herself – dilemma, I signed.

She got it all out, all in Yoruba, Dr. P did not understand a word of Yoruba. Rather than her nodding along to the doctor’s report, she made me translate to the doctor so the doctor could respond to her directly with me doing the translation.

I was about to give up in the beginning because I thought she didn’t trust I would give her accurate reports but it wasn’t about trust, she just wanted to be carried along when matter that concerned her was being discussed. So she did the Yoruba mother’s well-known threat ‘if I were your mother, I want you to tell this man exactly what I say’ – oh dear!

Dr P. was incredible, my mother asked many questions that I would not have thought of. All involved left  happy in the end.

My mother can be tiny weeny difficult to teach how to read one on one, oh well, that perhaps shows my impatient with teaching a 70+ mummy. She reads Yoruba bible, sounding out each letters.

Seeing Gogo here, I can see how mine would love to be in a group setting (perhaps with adults of similar age group) where she could learn to do simple arithmetic on paper.

Well done Gogo Priscilla! Inspiring even at 90 years old.

Cradle of Yoruba: Vandalism over market day today, what’s next?

In a society where we are oblivious to the changing world that we are in, it is inevitable that unresolved land ownership disputes will keep people hostile to their neighbours until they burst.

Vandalism is another consequences of violence that I just do not agree with because it only shows one thing – ignorance. Destroying properties just do not make any sense given most involved are farmers and worked hard to own any property at all.

Growing up with my royal familyI am well aware that disputes over land ownership affect quite a lot of small towns around those clustered around Ile Ife, however, Modakeke is most affected as they have bigger population and closer to the Ifes than other surrounding towns.

Now, for years Ipetumodu and Asipa have been disputing over land ownership, there are impending court case on many of their lands. Several years ago, they were near burst but it was curtailed, now last week the veil was uncovered – burning buildings, damaging properties leaving communities deserted, for what? – Because the king wants more land.

Traditionally, we have local markets that operate on rota, this must have been agreed by traders long ago for ease of farm produce trading, so market day don’t clash. People in my village usually trade between Famia, Akinlalu, Asipa and Gbongan, there is always something unique with each market – life is a bliss.

Two years ago, a new market was created by the Ipetumodu at Akinola Junction and the date that this market operates was deliberately fixed so it coincides with Asipa market. To an outsider, this should be no big deal however, to locals it is a very big issue because Akinola is situated on Ibadan Express road making it more accessible to traders than Asipa market and so basically ‘snatch’ traders from Asipa market.

In this case chiefs and kings playing mind games for no other reason than to provoke reactions. Beggar believe how they arrive at being crowned.

For those who believed Modakeke and Ife land dispute over land ownership is isolated,  well, now we can all see interwoven idiosyncrasies that is our tale.

This short clip says it all. Nothing more to it. One side says, “I am the original owner” the other says “It’s my father’s” As if that is not embarrassing enough, among these two people was a king! That we are supposed to listen to.

We might as well have feudal system. Incredible the number of kings we have in Yorubaland today. When I was little, I knew about five within 30 miles radius, today the numbers have quadrupled and with zero accountability.

By the turn of the century, every street will have a king, heaven knows who I will end up paying homage to.

 

Nigeria: Moving on from our very own anachronism

Anachronism, that’s mouthful I think.

The first time I sat by someone reading the Sun, UK newspaper and noticed a naked lady, I was taken back  thinking I had thought women were more respected in this part of the world than my home. It becomes especially demoralising when men are presented differently, mostly in more mature and responsible light. Well, if some people decided it was fun to have naked women in the newspaper, I suppose it’s only fair if we have naked men too – free world.

It didn’t take long before I realised gender inequality affect women the world over, women have for centuries being the butt of all jokes – long journey it has been.

Things are changing rapidly with quality education available to both genders, improvement are made in many important ways, still long way to go.

It is commendable that at last page three of The Sun has become subject of serious discussions, in time it will be taking out completely or more fun would be men portrayed in similar manner side by side.

Apart from obvious condescending attitude towards women in Nigeria. The one that I found demeaning was women of all ages being accused of witchcraft, this happens a lot across the country except for the Hausas, probably because of religion.

 

The idea here is not about whether or not witchcraft existed, rather it is to allow us to question the glorification that Nigerians give to it by associating all that did not go well to be the work of village witches, which often in time is another attack on hard work mothers.

This has in significant ways damaging as often times, the culprits is staring in our faces but we were preoccupied with blaming the ‘concept’ that can not be held responsible.

Given more than half of Nigeria population lived in rural areas and are usually the least educated, they are the most accused of witchcraft for all that is not right.

I believe if compulsory primary school education to the world standard is enforced, school leavers will be able to read and comprehend ideas as well as to allow oneself to question those that did not match up to the reality of day-to-day events.

It is incredible to know that epileptic disorder (warapa) that many associate to be another witch spell is actually brain disorder.

Many more unbelievable misfortune are wrongly associated with witches, the result is that we end up running in circles looking for answer in wrong places and one more reason women should not be trusted with making important decisions.

A young man killed his own mother in a gruelling attack somewhere in the east last year on the ground that she was the one responsible for all his misfortune of not having a job after school. The young man was blinded to he fact that he was not alone that millions of Nigerians are in the same shoes.

Unfortunately, we do have women like Lady Apostle Helen Ukpabio, the founder of Liberty Foundation Gospel Ministries in Nigeria whose speciality is to promote lies.  Undercover  from the UK revealed what can only be described as child abuse. Apostle Helen is only one out of many witch hunters in Nigeria, there are hundreds of them around.

Witch-hunting on vulnerable citizens only shows ignorant of the people.  This is our own attitude that belongs in a different era and has no place in modern time.

Genetic condition: How different are we from the rest of the world?

Strange memory, one event triggers long time memory to help put confusion to rest. I am grateful for this more ‘open’ world where I learn almost daily that under our very many different shades of skin colour, we are not too different.

It was enlightening reading about Jacqui Beck where she talked about living with MRKH syndrome, a condition where one is born with no womb, cervix or vaginal opening.

What was even more enduring was the way she handles it all, after dealing the initial shock and the community effort that helped her to deal with this condition.

With MRKH, external genitalia is normal so possible to live with the condition to adulthood without suspecting. Most detect they had it due to absence of period or inability to have sex due to shallow vaginal carnal.

Then I remember, we do have that condition in Nigeria too, women with such condition are called Akiribótó in Yoruba. Like any unusual condition, the stigma is worse than the condition itself.

When I was little, there was a woman who has a fruit stall in the local market, her birth name was only used when addressing her directly, her name any other time was Akiribótó.

I want to remember what was said about this woman and what her status is today,  happy my sister remembers her too, unfortunately we both had no idea what her real name was – shame. My sister still sees the woman occasionally and her name remains the same – very sad. I am glad the woman found a solace in the church – this is when I think church provides a much-needed escape for those that society would not stop picking on.

The lady in my town must be in her late 50s now, apparently her news came to light after she got married, unfortunately, the marriage only lasted for a couple of months.

And of course living in a rural area doesn’t help especially in areas where superstition is easily accepted as explanation for anything unusual. I can only imagine how much this woman must have run from pillar to post in the past, doing all sorts of sacrifices to dispel her condition.

I do hope we continue to learn we are no longer in an isolated world, hopefully people living with this condition can find peace knowing they are not alone.

As it just happens that sometimes women’s worth is measured by her ability to reproduce, well in the case Akiribótó this can not happen, unfortunately, however, at least women living with this type of condition can make peace with the fact that intimate relationship is still very much possible with help of medical interventions. And more importantly to know is that we are in ever connected world where there are lots of community support even if it have to be from across the atlantic.

Nigeria: Where presidential election campaign is another aso ebi craze

It is commendable seeing politicians gathering for photos without Owambe craze. Our issues are of many layers, hopefully we will work our way through shedding wasteful habits bit by bit.

Most of the time it is accumulation of small things that add up to become big issue. Why must election campaign be another Owambe? Is it important to Nigerians that campaigners and supporters be in uniform?

One small detail I have noticed lately since this election campaign started was the outfits worn on the campaign trail – trivial? Not really. In the case of Nigeria, it is a big deal, adds up.

Owambe is not all positive as we make it to be and when used to a great extent during election campaign, it is even more damaging because the money be it private or public could have been better spent on things that could directly add value to people’s life, dig one or two community toilet or borehole for a starter.

Other countries when campaigning for general elections would opt to wear t-shirts to support their party, but in our case it is a full attire costing the nation millions of naira.

I am sure both APC and PDP are guilty of this, however I have noticed on many occasion where APC, Buhari’s party opt to wear their everyday clothing on the campaign trail. However, in the case of our sitting president GEJ, it is shameful, women are worse – it is all without a fail Aso ebi

Why must we be in uniform when campaigning for public offices? This is one of the many ways Nigeria misplaced priorities of what people needed, it will take a visionary leader to see how wasteful this habit is.
