Six months ago, over 200 girls where taken away from their beds in the middle of the night by terrorists, despite the fact that Military personnel where aware of the threat. Six months later, they haven’t been found, our government is suspiciously and unfortunately but expectedly quiet because EVERYTHING IS UNDER CONTROL.
In a few weeks we went from a missing 40 billion to 20 billion. The whistle blower was removed from office and given a life time position of traditional power. No money has been recovered, instead more money has been borrowed. But there is no problem because EVERYTHING IS UNDER CONTROL.
70% of Nigerians are illiterate, and a minimum of 15% out of the literate 30% are not really literate, they are just certified to have graduated from university, again there is no problem because EVERYTHING IS UNDER CONTROL.
Since 1960, Nigerians have been unable to live in a country with 24hr power supply, if we get 6-8 hrs in a day we say NEPA has tried, and we put on our generators- the noise making instrument that we are so used to. Yet the government is doing all it can to fix this because EVERYTHING IS UNDER CONTROL.
There is poverty but it is UNDER CONTROL, Boko Haram is UNDER CONTROL, corruption is UNDER CONTROL. In fact EVERYTHING IS UNDER CONTROL.
Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, I think it is time for Nigeria to get out of Control. To get OUT OF CONTROL from the clutches of egoistic maniacs that call themselves politicians. It’s time we take this nation OUT OF THE CONTROL of government officials that eat the money that is suppose to be used for the development of the masses.
It is time for us to ask serious questions and not take no for an answer so that everything will be OUT OF CONTROL.
We mustn’t always change our level of interest as the news changes. We left the Chibok Girls in the hands of the government leaving Michelle Obama, Alicia Keys and a handful of Nigerians to fight for us.
We left our epileptic power supply in the hands of a government primarily interested in enriching their pockets.
But in January 2012, we didn’t leave the fuel subsidy decision in the hands of government, we took it to the streets, the classrooms and even our churches, because we knew there was no turning back from it. We knew it was the end if the decision was not revoked. When we were interested, we made our government sit up to at lest take “certain steps” in finding the Chibok girls.
We’ve done it before, and we can do it again. Nobody will fix Nigeria except for the citizens. The government can’t do it, the international community can’t do it, billions of dollars in loans can’t do it. It’s time we sat up and spoke with one voice, a voice so loud, it sends shivers down the spine of everyone in Aso Rock.
My Name is Ugo, and I want a Nigeria that is out of Control.
