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.
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.
