Nigeria, Africa’s most populous nation with about 200 million people, is rich in human and other resources. But those resources seem to go to the top one percent of the population, especially well connected politicians who crisscross the planet on private jets and send their children to the most expensive schools on earth while the rest of Nigerians are stuck in squalor and hopelessness. Close to hundred million people go to bed hungry or half hungry every night, while less than 5 percent of the population has had constant electricity in the past 50 years.

They jet out frequently for the best medical care around the world while Nigerians are made to pay with their lives in ill-equipped hospitals.

President Muhammadu Buhari recently returned from London on a private visit. He’s in Egypt today after Saudi Arabia and a cornucopia of other places.

Muhammadu Sanusi II, born Sanusi Lamido Sanusi 31 July 1961, the 14th Emir of Kano, was the former Central Bank Governor of Nigeria

So, they fly, they enjoy, their children fly and enjoy, while the rest of Nigerians suffer daily without food, water or electricity.

Pictures are better than words. Please post your comments below. This is Nigeria, Africa’s most populous nation, with oil and gas and wealth all over the place, but with also poverty, hunger and anger all around.

In the end, while rich Nigerians crisscross the world in jets, others, we the others, have nothing, nothing, nothing to live or hope for, except God.

But God is the majority. God can turn dilapidated schools into serious and beautiful places of learning.

May the other 99 percent of Nigerians one day be able to go to proper schools and good hospitals. With a good government, one day, they will.

  1. Enough of bitter reality. Just taking some time to lighten our mood. Can yall spare some minutes of your lives to advise Atiku and Okorocha to find out from their Boss how to find beautiful women to marry? They can ask Sanusi too. How is Okorocha’s daughter going to find a husband? Jussaying

  2. I hope Nigerians and even entire African states will wake up one day and rise against these set of leaders and oppressors we have. Their political ideologies are full of lies and cheats. They do not have the fear of God at hearts let alone the love of their fellowmen. The sufferings experienced in their hands by the people will one day push them to the wall and there will be open attack and anarchy will take the lands when it is time for total liberation.

  3. ……how on this earth can anyone swallow this seismic disparity??? Africa, as a whole , needs to be cleaned up and purified from its bowels. How can we blame these greedy vermin; we must blame ourselves, the citizens who elect them, re-elect them, pamper them and let them go unpunished and unaccountable for their bloated conspiracies to hoard, steal and amass untold wealth for themselves, the very few. And this, to happen in Nigeria, of all places? Shame on you Nigerian citizenry….

  4. Thanks Simon for your informative Journalism. Adding the Schools (presumedly, USA or UK) of attendance or Graduation, would’ve added more value to how selfish our “so called Politicians”are!
    Nigeria is a Country with no CONSCIENCE!!!!
    As we can see, this issue transcends through all ethnic spectrum of our society. Our main problem, is we leave all injustices to GOD. It’s high time we start fighting for ourselves and leave God out of the equation.

  5. Is so funny when we Nigerians complained about situation of our country and the bad quality of living our politicians gave us. Have had opportunity to live in Europe and study. No politicians can succeed or has power if we the Nigerians don’t support him or her , that’s called power of the mob. We are more powerful than any politicians or any government. For anyone to be in power we the Nigerians the mob are needed. Until we realise our power, Nigeria will never change.

  6. Thieves come into your home & steals you’re valuables but you or your neighbor is not willing to take action by forming a strong force of One voice to stop the thieves. Instead, we all talk cheap-talk. But no effective action of unity, locally or internationally. And we want to see the thieves change their behavior & stop looting..Black people are cowards. No one wants to die for their children and/or country. Instead many are standing on-line or bribing to be included in the corrupt system. Look at China & other up-raising countries. The young men and women took to the streets and demand change with help of support groups international. The power of change is in our hands, but tribal hatred-East-West-Noth, has blinded us to stand together to root-out Cancer corruption in our beloved country ☹️😥😓

  8. Femi,Tampa bay,florda.It’s so ridiculous that our so called greedy politicians have reduced a land full of milk and honey to a land of absolute hunger where people are living in abject poverty and squalor ,any way, they shall surely reap what they are sowing.The so called Nigeria politicians should bury their ugly faces in shame.Let me know how much of your I’ll gotten wealth you will take to hell your final resing place.Shame on you corrupt Nigeria politicians.

  9. Thank you Simon Ateba for your journalism and for publishing this. I hope people repost it several times.
    Its embarrassing to ordinary Africans to have their country seen as a shithole..thanks to their African politicians who have absolutely no regard for anyone except their bellies (usually bloated)
    They don’t deserve to live past 50 years old.

  10. It is our duty as a people to unite in one accord and fight injustice. For, if we can’t unite as a people to fight this fight which posterity task upon us, we give those we have authorised to lead us the basic prerogative to benefit in endless magnitudes on our strides and toil while we languish in an ever increasingly dilapidating status quo.

  11. Thanks for your well thought article about the shenenigan of our Africa’s latter days political achemist…they say with their mouth what they do not believe in their heart.They are thieves and looters on a larger scale.
