  1. It is time for Nigeria to change and give young people chance to change Nigeria for better. As long as old demagogues are still in power, Nigeria cannot progress. Let us give our children chance to run Nigeria efficiently; any governors or public officials that are above sixty years of age should retire in their various positions and politics. Scrupulous state governors, senators, congress men and women, councilors, and local chair-men are using their offices to enrich their pockets at the expense of people who voted for them. Their paradigms are “they are above the law”. They had no any fears for the people who voted for them and they boycotted the common people wellbeing. They are not for the people but for their political parties. Nigeria should only be for people and not for polities.
    Poor citizens are in pains; no jobs and those working for the government are not paid, what a shame. If workers are paid on time, they could spend their money on some consumption goods such as food stuffs, transportations and others; while the suppliers will be able to turn over their supplies from time to time. Nigeria is not self-sufficient, importations of goods and services should be encouraged to promote competitions which will drive down prices.
    Nigeria needs new blood, Nigeria needs millenniums for growth, as we are now in digital age. If Nigeria wants to be a developing country and not under developed all baby boomers should retire and give millenniums chance to lead Nigeria.

    • @ Stephen Bamgbade, you raised an important issues here but some of our forumites may not understand much about Millenials Generation you were talking about. Identifying group of people according to their generations may be another topic for another day but let me quickly paraphrase it for the benefit of those who do not know. Generations were being grouped into 5 parts. People who were born between 1921 to 1945 are regarded as TRADITIONALIST. BABY BOOMER were born between 1946-1964. GENERATION X were born between 1965-1980. MILLENIALS are those born between 1980-2000 and the CLOUD are the young kids born between 2000-present.

      Millenials are generation between 18 – 34 year old. Millenials are multitask, passionate about Equality and Transparency. They aware of their generation’s destiny to move the World toward peace, tolerance and sustainability. They can make use of today’s challenges to change the Country in a very positive and lasting way. These are not all their characteristics but anyone can notice that they have what it takes to move Country ahead.

      The Baby Boomer are people between ages 52-70 years old. Most of them are still in work force. In Nigeria, they dominated government and sensitive position in politics. Most baby boomers do not worry much about family. Some have left their family to look for greener pasture in White man’s Countries. Most of them were educated in Abroad. They believe in discipline and in work place you have to the job right if you want to work with them. They have more than one wife or mistresses. They have sex with different women who produce more children resulted to hike in population.

      However, in Nigeria most of baby boomer benefited much from our Colonia master (British). They were trained directly under colonia power but they never make use of what they have learnt. They damage this Country prospect through their greed, poor governance and corruption. Although the Millenials can move this Country forward based on their idea and characteristics described above but are they ready to effect that change in Nigeria politics?

      Nigeria political system is quite different from politics around the Globe. Can they (Millenials) handle the heat of Nigeria politics?. Most of our Millenials in Nigeria do not know how to take a step such as organizing protest and make their voice heard in every nook and cranny of Nigeria and they need some support of baby boomers in order to successfully transit to modern politics.

  2. Enough is enough, ordinary citizens are sicked and tired of political wars in Nigeria; the politicians are not caring about poor people who could not avoid food on their tables and politicians are fighting for positions to enrich their pockets at the expense of people who voted for them. Nigeria needs new blood, Nigeria needs millenniums for growth, as we are now in digital age. If Nigeria wants to be a developing country and not under developed all baby boomers should retire and give millenniums chance to lead Nigeria.

  3. The court has spoken so it must be obeyed. If the verdict is not satisfactory to either party, let them go on appeal and allow person hear word a beg!

  4. @stephen i agree to some extent on the points you wrote but we must also not forget quickly about the kind of you we have now children that have because of the so called jet age turned into another creature. they no longer have respect for diligence and peace they violate the laws anyhow they’ve chosen cultism over perfect religion. i must say that the country needs prayer and God fearing people who are up to the task in respective of age or gender

  5. have once said it on this forum that there is no rule of law in this country the law has it boundary and it those not affect those in power..
