3 WAYS NIGERIA HAS FAILED US.

We have three personal experiences since we have gotten back to Nigeria that just make us question if we have a President. We know as a nation we have a long way to go, but there are things that should just be basic amenities that we as citizens are entitled to regardless of where on the ladder we are.

 

HEALTH CARE

This is the most recent and to be honest the reason we even decided to make this post. So few weeks ago, Jomi had an accident at home, which resulted in blood gushing out so bad from her face. I really didn’t know what to do, with non-existent emergency numbers and living alone in a new area. I was trying to give her first aid whilst also trying to get a taxi.

We finally get a taxi and reach a hospital near by and I was absolutely disgusted. The “Nurse” could see a blood soaked towel but all she cared about was money to register the patient. Luckily, I had cash with me and paid immediately, after payment the nurse wanted to “register” her and asked for her name, number, address, next of kin, which I gave her. I felt she needed to admit first aid first and have her colleague collect whatever details she needed to avoid excess loss of blood but she didn’t she not only wasted time by filling the first form but by also filling the Dr’ copy which took about 30minutes. When I asked why no one was attending to her, she said Jomi needed to see a Dr first and then I began to wonder…see a Dr to treat an injury and stitch the wound? But we patiently waited to see the Dr.

 

The Dr’s office was so untidy, Jomi & I exchanged glances with our eyes both saying “Are you sure we shouldn’t leave” but we were certain we had to when the doctor began to ask the most irrelevant questions ever. Off we were to another hospital, same process except they were sensible enough to treat her whilst I filled the form.

 

I watched my sister pass out in front of me from excess loss of blood. This wouldn’t have happened if the nurses in the first hospital were well trained. I don’t blame the nurses though, neither do I blame the underpaid lecturers or the universities with substandard facilities, I only blame our leaders. Everyday a poor soul is lost due to carelessness of our incompetent, underpaid and stressed health care workers. I genuinely wonder how a person feels embezzling money that is meant for bettering our hospitals, schools and roads. Every day they spend on the most stupid things like the dumb ass disruptive marathon, abeg who dem help? Just thieves lining their pockets.

 

ELECTRICITY

We haven’t had light for the past month where we live, we run our generator 24/7. When there isn’t light, we can’t operate the pumping machine, which means there isn’t water and how on earth do you, survive with no water? . “You should be used to this though” well we hear you and we are indeed, however it only gets worse. We run our generator almost 24/7 which is expensive normally, but it only gets more expensive when we are forced to fuel our generator with N350/L fuel. The truth is we were complaining about how expensive fueling the generator is when there is fuel scarcity, but right now we wouldn’t mind paying N500/L to fuel our generator right now at least it beats waking up soaked in your own sweat. It is 2016, cannot believe we are still here as a nation. We have hope in Fashola and are praying in three years we aren’t still in this same place.

 

SECURITY

I held on tight to my dad as a total stranger was pulling me out of a moving car. I didn’t know what was happening, I just knew it could be the end of me. We were driving through some street, the next thing I knew was the car door flung open and a guy grabs me, I was wearing a sit belt so I didn’t fall out right away. For a second I thought he wanted my Iphone, but it was much easier for him to grab that than it was for him to grab me. My dad swerved and swerved trying to make him lose his grip on me whilst trying to keep the car balanced and not have an accident. That was one of the most terrifying days in my life, I can remember wanting to stay indoors the rest of my visit to Nigeria. A more recent experience was a drive home from VGC around 7am, I watched two guys break the window of a lady in front of me and get away with her bag. The truth is, it’s rampant and it really isn’t new but please can we provide jobs for our brother on the road? Of course if you haven’t eaten all day or even all week you would be forced to do anything. We shouldn’t be scared to move around in our own country, neither should we be scared of being robbed of our hard earned money…..Sai Baba fix this abeg.

 

Mr President, in as much as we see your effort in curbing corruption, you can’t leave the needs of your people to retrieve stolen funds which would only be redistributed when discovered. We as Nigerians need an improved quality of living and our safety shouldn’t be luxury. If you are bent on chasing away corrupt people, please step down as president and resume position as EFCC chairman.

  1. Sorry to hear about what happened to Jomi. It can be really sad to leave in a place where things can just go wrong. Hopefully, the government listens to the people and do their job. It’s not enough to talk the talk, Buhari and his government have to fulfil their responsibilities

  2. 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼
    Couldn’t have said it any better , Buhari wants to get things done, but he’s not flexible neither is he caring, he only does what he wants and gets things done in his own way…..someone please tell Uncle Bubu democracy is a thing ☹️ The last part 😂😂😂 he’d make a superb EFCC chairman ✊🏼 I can’t believe no one thought of that till now 🙁
