second class citizen


I really think the worst thing that can happen to a schooled person isn’t being unemployed but being uneducated.

If you’re in the throes of uneducation (sic), how do you even sustain your job and save yourself from sinking back into unemployment or worse off, under-employment?

Just tell me.

Arguments like, “Nigeria is moving forward,” “Nigeria is changing. You can not sit down in your house and expect a change,” are uneducated.

They missed classes or are on overstay.

I can sit in my house and see change, not expect it.

Expecting it is an insult to my civil right as a Nigerian. Basic human rights like the right to have light because I-fucking-pay-my-electricity-bills.


I can stay home and see or feel electricity: My fan is functional without noisy generators, etc. That’s change!

But I can’t. You can’t. No one can see this change.

Everyone is just as confused as the current state of the administration.

We’d rather travel from one man’s home to another just to catch a wisp of happiness here, a splurge of laughter there. But not in our homes. Never!

Perhaps because we’re okay with second class citizen lifestyle.

You’re buying fuel for N200 to charge your phone to come online to scream, “Sai change,” and you think all’s well?

No, all’s not. Don’t even come and argue here if you’ve not had steady 12-20 hours light without buying fuel.

Nigerians don’t have light. To escape sweating like rabid dogs on the chase, we go for fuel to power our generators.

But fuel per litre is close to a dollar.

And you’re here arguing for what I don’t know. Glued to party politics like adhesive: APC or PDP warriors.

Who gives a rat’s ass about these folks, these parties – Siamese twin who hate each other? Love hate relationship.

Who fucking cares about them?

Election is over. It’s time to throw your party politics – APC, PDP, APCPDP or whatever – in the dust bin and be realistic. Very realistic!
