Never in the history of Nigeria, is aspiration to the highest office in the land, unattractive, disdainful and inopportune as it is now based on the inherent barrage of administrative adversities, ranging from, a deep rooted acrimony, disunity amongst the federating ethnic nationalities; Gross underdevelopment; lackdaiscal banditry; Leadership inepitude; failure of governance; institutionalised kidnappings; Deadlyand wanton herdsmen/farmers skirmishes, et al.
Based on these premise and other inadvertents, the IGBOS should not allow themselves to be used as sewage folders for the unenviable clean up of the intractable mess, which the Nigerian Oligarchy, has plunged the nation into. This in itself, is very gargantuan snf a near mission impossible, to be achieved in a timeline of a 8 year tenure, it's indeed, a Herculean task!!!.
Suffice to say, that Nigeria is miserably in a very deplorable decrepit, a quasi failed country, with multiple civil strife dotting her landscapes. This unacceptable and bizzare state of nation, prompted the immediate past president of the United States of America (USA), ex- President Donald Trump, to describe same, as a 'SHIT HOLE COUNTRY' and the United Nations (UN), to classify Nigeria, as the poverty capital of the entire world.
These unhealthy classifications, captures succintly and aptly, the unfortunate, pathetic and sordid state of the Nigeria nation, after 61years of endemic NEPOTISM, senseless pillaging & clueless leadership by the Oligarchy & her cohorts, that have held this country, hostage, for too long. Therefore, the IGBOS must not make themselves, available for this impossible task of a clean up, without first, restructiring the nation, it's going to backfire big time and shall add IGBOS, into the league of folks, that destroyed Nigeria.
At this point, IGBOS, should maintain 'SIDDON dey look' approach, let the vampires, power scavengers and leadership incompetents that destroyed Nigeria, get it FIXED, as anything contrary, shall make NDIGBO, the victims of future blackmails and name callings, as usual by our political adversaries.
Igbos are known for their diligence and versatility of purpose, getting themselves enmeshed in a murky and deplorable governance of a prostrate Nigerian state, at this time, is not ideal and most inopportune. Let us insist to do away with the recalcitrant 1999 Constitution, which is the bane of all our problems as a nation and insist on RESTRUCTIRING or nothing.
