  1. This is what badluck Jonathan has brought this country
    I urge these youths to embark on a bloody revolution as they did in ghana
    Elminitate all the corrupt politicians and take over

  2. I read this piece and this song came to my mind “parents listen to your children, we are the leaders of tomorrow…” and I asked myself some simple questions “where are the children who sang this song, are they the leaders today or these same parents they dedicated this song to are still the leader?” It baffles & saddens me when I see survey like this. The likes of Zik, Awo, Ahmadu Bello, Gowon, Balewa, M. Mohammed, Ironsi, Ojukwu etc took charge of d country in their 30s, though we can’t compare then to now but that will still not leave out the fact that Nigerian youths have been rendered powerless, hopeless & thereby making them one of the most unhappy in the world. #passersby#

  3. This what Nigerian Scammers do to they country. People are sad because everybody hate Nigerian over the scams. Better laws should be executed and many good people would be happier.

  8. There are people in the world today…big leaders(or so they are called) and they have an agenda for a new world order. It is all over the internet, so educate yourself. Part of the agenda is to curb the population especially in poor countries where we can’t seem to do nothing but pop out babies like pop corn machine. Nigeria is one of the biggest problems in this area, so how else to create a Syria situation than by inciting our youth. When statements like this Nigerian youth anger news is distributed, they carry power whether you like it or not….and slowly but surely,something will give and chaos may ensue….in a way that brothers will kill brothers and the population will be diminished.

    OPEN YOUR EYES AND YOUR EARS. We pray that though our country has been going through tough seasons since independence, the rock of ages will breathe sanity into the system, continue to expose the looters and inspire men and women of integrity to serve and repair Nigeria.

    We should have been Africa’s #1 economy from day1 and a G10 economy by now.
