Who will save Nigeria?


57 years after Independence, the country groans on…Who will deliver the people?

As candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, many hoped Muhammadu Buhari would be the one to save Nigeria. Not many are that inclined today.

Upon his recent return from a two-month medical vacation in the United Kingdom, Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari reportedly affirmed that not only was the scourge of poor and self-medication reportedly continuing to have a most debilitating impact on the health of many Nigerians, in the UK, where he was returning from and where he was also most likely to return shortly, he could personally testify that there was ample evidence of excellent medical services.

This testimony coming 57 years after Nigerian nationalists had successfully forced the British out of the governance rungs of the country in a sense then affirms Chinua Achebe’s point that the Nigerian challenge is not soil-based. As he declared in his 1983 book, the trouble with Nigeria is simply and squarely a failure of leadership.

And this then brings us to the heart of the matter, which namely is that in making his confessions on the state of medical practice in Nigeria and the UK, is the president now viscerally affirming that him and successive generations of Nigerian leaders have truly not been fair to the nation? And this indeed is a pity.

For the Nigerian people then, the lesson then is to look elsewhere for their salvation or better still, to frontally take the task of securing their salvation into their own hands.
