Who Is The Problem Of Nigeria

By - - [ Real Matter ]

I was talking to some elders recently and the issue of our beloved Nigeria country came up. I asked them 'who is the problem of Nigeria, the leaders or the followers?', arguments started and I discovered that most of the problems we encounter in Nigeria are caused by we the followers.

Nigeria today is blessed with both negativity and positivity. We are blessed with mineral resources, bribery & corruption among others. 
Focusing on the negative impacts of these 'blessings' to the nation, the followers partake in a greater part of it. If for instance money is been shared by the federal or state government to every household in the country, there are still members of a household that won't receive their share because some members of their family wants to take a Lion share thereby affecting some people in the family. 

Government officials when allocated money for projects, keep some for themselves and even the other parts used for the project will still be shared by those placed in charge of the money. 
Many of us in this country fail to reason accordingly. What do I mean by this? The president or governor will never pick up head pans to start constructing road, they'll never erect electric poles themselves neither will they come to an area to start distributing money or empowering the youths/poor. They will appoint some of us the followers to carry out these tasks/project.

As for me I can't justify anyone as both the  masses and the government are both prepratrators of corruption and criminal vices but trust me when you have a corrupt system of government the people suffer and when there is suffering,people do anything to be strong.

Everyone is at fault.

The citizens are the problem. Change begins with us. The largest part of our population are corrupt. Aside the corrupt part, see the number of people supporting reality shows like big brother where stupidity is encouraged. How many of Nigerian population support educational programs. We promote and support  stupidity alot just like the case of Bob risky.

Both the citizen and the government are the problem of this country. But the government has the biggest problem by not creating employment for the citizens. If there is employment, everybody will face there responsibility and solve every problem of the country. And I believe that if there is job and they are being paid, no one will steal rob or even have time to fight one another.

To some extent i'm in support of this article. And one thing i have concluded at is that the citizens are contributing to most of the problems being faced by the country. Because of you say its the government, this are also the citizens of this countries, they are not foreigners. They are the ones bringing policies and still rendering it useless. If you look into this critically policies are being brought from other countries that have tried, tested and certified them yet it doesnt work here. I blame the citizens for the chunk of problem in this country because we dont do things to promote this country.

Government is the bigger problem in Nigeria in the sense that they keep eating our money leaving the poor to suffer and not creating job opportunities for graduates and non graduates which leads to robbery, kidnapping and all sorts of evil activities

Both the citizens and the Government are. The government are not providing jobs for her citizens and the little they managed to squeeze out is being embezzled by its citizens. Imagine the zeal and effort the youths put in gambling, when it becomes an effort to start petty business. It doesn't change the country much but trust me, it works.

As for me i will say the leaders have the biggest problem.Because corruption starts from the leaders.they have little vision for the future, lack of accountability...leaders are suppose to set directions, build an inspiring vision and create something new for the followers..and not to lavish money meant for development

Though everybody direct blames to government while we have having issues among ourselves, we are condemning people and we are doing the worst I will have to blame the citizens of the country for all the adversities, we are being bride to to elect people that will do no help to the society and we are still the same people that will blame them for not working effectively, when the grassroots are faulty the people up there will have nothing to do... I will have to blame the citizens for all the adversities

Is high time we stop blaming others to be the problem of Nigeria. The problem of Nigeria is you and me, no one will build our country into a good shape for us but we can.  With the sword of accountability and the shield to avoid corruption we can make a nettbe nigeria

The leaders are the problem of the country but we,the followers are not making things better for ourselves, Despite watching all the bad things happening in the country everyday,majority still do worse. We blame everything on our leaders when we just need to take the right steps and solve issues ourselves. We need to start taking actions.We should avoid corruption and learn to live in peace with our fellow Nigerians.

Nigeria's problems are numerous. But to the question of who is responsible for the problems, its the leaders. The leaders have their own problems, corruption and the rest but the problems of the followers are a result of the inefficiency or in activeness of the leaders. Its the job of the leaders to put the followers in line. so I place all the blame on the leaders

Nigeria as a country is blessed with many mineral resources but our major problems in this country is our leaders, they are leading us by example negatively. If our leaders can change for good Nigeria will elevate to greater  height just like other developed countries.

With my own point of view, the government are not the only one to be blame but the peoples as well. Because no man want to willingly help his fellow man and the excuse they all give is to pass it to the government

Both the followers and the government have their fault in this because lets take for example the Yahoo boys who knows what they are doing are not good but still keep on doing it and tanishing the country image and when Buhari said we should not import any foreign good to Nigeria, some Nigerians  still found a way to smuggle in goods which is totally inappropriate. Just because we can't appreciate what is being produced in our country. And as for the governments, greediness is their own problem

For me I feel that the problem of Nigeria is both from the Government  and the people.The fault the government have is not making sure the fund being distributed gets to where it is supposed to and does the work expected to do.

The fault the people have is that they are not fully informed and by this they take decisions based on the information they have.

We citizens are the problem of this Country. Those people governing us dont have any blame to fault them. During Election we collect money before we vote for them. The person that spent money during his/her Election. Once that kind of person emerged, he will just continue Embezzling till he Get his/her money back. And the person that we know is the Leader of Corruption, once they give us during election we are going to forget all the sufferness of four years. What am trying to say is that. The changes must change from us.

No individual is responsible for Nigeria's problem. The main problem is that we have no systems in place to check mate the bad leadership that we are experiencing now. A good leader with a bad system will turn bad. A bad leader with a good system will be forced to do the right thing.

Our leaders remain the sole problem of Nigeria. If law is passed abt anyone that embezzle public fund will be hang, if you are given contract and you used substandard products your company will be closed down, you will repay the contract full sum and you will still be imprison, if a law is pass about tax offenders, all Nigerians will move in same direction be it the masses or the elites.

For me oooo,I think the leaders and followers are at fault but majorly the followers, the issue if bribery and corruption in our country is getting worse and it's affecting our education and financial lives. You see charity begins at home is what they say, we should all check ourselves. The change begins with us ...when we as the followers are corrupt while won't our leaders too be. So let's all be guided.
