NIGERIA: The Stage-Based Corruption

Corruption in Nigeria is endemic. It is stage managed and cannot be eradicated by just word of mouth. The players of corruption are fortified and can go any length to eliminate any stumbling blocks in the way.
These corruption groups of Nigerians are brutal and can kill even their own mother to get what they want. To understand corruption and how to reduce it in Nigeria, one has to understand how it works, and the forces to contain with.
It is noteworthy that those who depend on politics for a living in Nigeria will always support the devil if he is in power in Nigeria.
Nigerians are their own enemies. There are four stage-based corruption in Nigeria:
Each of these groups and at every stage must sing praises as their lives are dependent on corruption. They stand shoulder to should with those in power though they have categories of income by looting.
With the scenario as above, who is surprise to hear people singing praises, asking and demanding for the second term or third term in office of the corrupt politicians? Look left and right, these people are standing beside you at local, state and federal levels. This is the reason why I said that corruption in Nigeria is endemic.
It is not the politician in Abuja that will stab and kill you, it is your friend standing next to you.
The only solution for Nigeria is to break it into three or four nations. Any solution outside that is a waste of time.
He who has ear let him hear. I owe no apologies to anyone. It is better that I speak out and die than to die in silence. God forbids evil. Nigeria stinks of corruption.

Where are we now in Nigeria on fighting corruption? The latest is Abdulrasheed Maina, the man who lives above his means. The man whose action has sent some pensioners to their early grave. The man who is loved at the corridor of corruption. The man whose corrupt ability supersedes other culprits. The man who is lured by partakers of corruption to return to his profession of wizardry in manipulating pension funds. The man whose skills of manipulation of pension fund is equal to none. Abdulrasheed Maina, the man held highly by his accomplices for his knowledge and ability to swindle the nation and the poor pensioners of their only livelihood. Abdulrasheed Maina, the spoilt child so loved by his relatives as they remember only his "good" of distributing stolen wealth than his "wrong" doing. I weep for Nigeria. We have really failed. I hope someone is listening to what I have been saying. Our posterity will never forgive us. We are all in this together. It is either you partake in the looting of National treasury or you partake in keeping silent on corruption. Nigerians should stop and think. You do not want to die for speaking out and challenging corruption now but you want your children yet unborn to die in fighting to stop corruption which you could have stopped while alive? You are nothing but a coward! May God forgive you BUT history will surely condemn you.
Democracy is about speaking out on injustice and corruption. Nigerians MUST stop and ponder over what they are individually, collaboratively and collectively doing to themselves and their country. Tribalism, religion and "my-turn-syndrome" have blighted Nigerians' mentality. In fact for anyone not condemning evil, he or she is evil himself. We have allowed and encouraged corruption to blossom in Nigeria. It has caused almost irreparable and undeniable consequenses on Nigerians' mentality. Nigerians and their leaders have failed our posterity yet unborn. Nigeria stinks of injustice and corruption. Next! We are waiting for the next drama on corruption. Who cares? Not Nigerians, not Africans, not the West, as they are all partakers of Nigerian corruption. I have said it, he who has ear let him hear.
