In Search of Solutions to Nigeria’s Problems @59.
Nigeria is changing gear through rough and challenging clouds of problems to possible destination of opportunities and greatness if carefully piloted. The gear is in the level that only those in the cockpit could know, read and maneuver to weather through her storms.
The ecstasy or anxiety by which pilots and crew members on a gliding airborne plane passing through the air waves, rough or smooth, may not be felt by innocent air travelers but could be decoded by experienced travelers.

Here we are in Nigeria, passing through the rough clouds of armed robbery, human kidnapping for ransom and rituals, unemployment, cattle rustling, ethnic profiling, corruption, deadly election polls, criminal official compromise, ecological degradation and others.
The rough clouds seem to be overwhelming and all on board are prescribing various routes out from the rough and problematic clouds.
Some passengers on board are prescribing death penalty legislation against emotional protest or hate speech, i.e. by throwing away erring emotional travelers from aboard flight, not aboard a sailing ship. Some prescribe prayers, a vocal number ask for rearrangement of passengers’ positions, seats and roles aboard. A few others adopted the attitude of ‘siddon’ look and voluntarily glued to their silence, unconcerned about the plight of their flight.
It was in the past that Nigeria was on unfruitful sail when elder statesman Obafemi Awolowo correctly predicted her ship heading for a rock and was shouted down but this time Nigeria is at higher level, aboard a flight that uses a system of constituted deceit by all levels of passengers aboard.
Despite the gliding of the plane amidst the rough air waves, the system of assumption of authority is flawed and shaking various corners of the plane during the chancy flight. Situations of “by ‘fire by force” elections, including deadly violent elections alleged of Kogi and Bayelsa, are illustrative of gliding flight which destination is predictably disaster loaded.
