Why democracy in Nigeria is a waste of time?

This list is in no particular order...…

1. The current President of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari is also the Minister of Petroleum, because he is the only Nigerian that is incorruptible.... because he told us so. 

2. A person could go into a coma 20 years ago, wake up and the same candidates that the person remembered 20 years ago, will still be contending for leadership positions. i.e. Obasanjo, Buhari, Atiku

3. To live in Nigeria you need to produce your own electricity, because the government or state does not see the reason why they should provide it. But every candidate will promise they will.

4. If you are travelling to Nigeria for the first time, you better not land in Lagos past 9pm and you better have somebody pick you up at the airport. No candidate can guarantee your safety,

5. Almost all goods in Nigeria are priced in the thousands....10, 0000 , 20, 0000 etc.

6. Billionaires are many, but no accountability about how the money was made and nobody cares, as long as he is rich.

7. Other countries have female Presidents, Prime Ministers. Other countries have leaders in their 40s, filled with youthful enthusiasm and modern ideas. Nigerian candidates are old men who still think a woman's best rooms are bedroom and kitchen.

8. In a shock to no one, the Presidential election which was set for February 16th has been postponed till February 23rd......or until the desired result is achieved.
