Nigeria since 1960

In. 1985, IBB was the president of Nigeria and
our teachers told us that Buhari was also a
former Head of state in 1984. Our teacher also
called us “the leaders of tomorrow” its about 30
years now, IBB and Buhari are still contesting
for Presidency, its either our teacher lied to us
about being the leaders of tomorrow, or
tomorrow is yet to come, who’s fooling who?

In 1983, Bamanga Tukur was the Governor of
the defunct Gongola State (now Adamawa &
Taraba) and 31 years later, he is today the
Chairman of the ruling Party. The PDP, Dr. Bello
Halliru was a commissioner in the Old Sokoto
State (now Sokoto, Kebbi & Zamfara) and over
30 years after he is Minister for Defence, Major
General David Mark(rtd) was the military
governor of Niger State in 1984 and now he is
now a 2nd term Senate President. Gov. Murtala

National Chairman of ANPP. Gov. David Jonah
Jang was the governor of Benue State in 1985
and 29 years after he is today the governor of

It’s only in Nigeria this is possible, we’ve
scores of his age mates like Uche Chukwumerije
& co. dominating the senate & federal house of
rep & state houses of assembly in all states of
the nation, where the youth of today have no
hope into the future,our so called leaders we’ve
succeeded in looting the recovered loots of their
predecessors, our countries economy is being
battered from strike in health sector, to the
labour, to judiciary, to education and today our
students are paying heavily for poor educational
services mixed with the difficulty of jumping
from one strike to another, let the Nigerian
youth come to an alliance and fight for the
unborn. We can’t continue like this the 1999
constitution should be re-addressed not amend.
