What does the country need to survive?
The future of Nigeria addresses the unending strives of poverty, corruption, anarchy and suffering among the masses. For far too long, misunderstanding and antipathy have ruined and wasted opportunities and governments show blind eyes to mass poverty and swindle for personal gain. But those still interested in Nigeria, wherever they may be found seek for change to enable people and systems' transformation. Like our Godfather, Britain, we need devolution of power to the regions to challenge the local people's attitudes to public duties and accountability. To bring the social crises of 150 million people without fixed addresses and regular employment cannot be effectively achieved from the Centre. If the Godfather of Nigeria devolved 60 million people, Nigeria should devolve 150 million people in line with the 1911 amalgamation proposals, part of which was implemented in 1991.Learning is never perfected without trial and while every effort has failed, the country should try to implement the 1911 proposal in full.
