Excuse my tardiness/ absence these days…. the “twinsome” ( I made up the word sue me) is keeping me extremely busy.
So I was reading up on the news catching up essentially and I was reading that the government of Nigeria is planning to give N5000 to 1 million poor Nigerians under some conditional Cash program. Anyway I looked at it and thought to myself what f***ery. Excuse my French but what exactly can N5000 do for any grown adult in this miserable environment that will be inpactful?
I keep thinking to myself if these people don’t have an actual vision, cant they surround themselves with people who do? Give them N5000 that probably will never reach them and in the event it actually does, it cannot create anything sustainable. Why haven’t they come up with requirements for the receipients outside of poverty? 70% or more of the Nigerian populace is poor – there are several reasons why the populace doesnt thrive.
Infrastructure, healthcare, education and access are primary areas that are lacking. fix the damn roads and require they be motorable- cost of living will become cheaper (food), provide electricity people will get working and be encouraged to work – the butcher won’t think about the high costs of diesel after he slaughters a cow for sale, healthcare – our infant mortality rates will be lower ( uneducated or undereducated women will have less kids) and be better equipped to care for themselves and said kids. A big part of why the Nigerian populace is the way it is – education…. literacy is not enough to be competitive.
There are many things this moneg can go into rather than the pockets of those who have already been enrinching themselves at the expense of others. Better yet they should organise a census that mandates a numbering of the populace so the challenges can be properly identified.
I wake up most days in a good mood and end up going to sleep with a headache when I hear a president continue to complain almost two years after he took office about what he met on ground. Took this man talked about he almost absconded when he met an empty treasury – I am thinking he may have honestly done Nigerians a huge favour by absconding.
I can’t today… drops phone and exits.
