Today is one of those days that’ll go down as the darkest in our journey to finding solutions to our perennial problems.

Today is a day of shame on our democracy.

Today is day of shame on President Muhammadu Buhari who says one thing while doing another.

Today should also be a day of shame as well on Senate President Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki and should be a day where his integrity is put to question but there’s no need questioning his integrity because he lacks one that’s why he is before the Code of Conduct Tribunal in the first place.

Today is a day of shame on All Progressive Congress (APC) for scamming Nigerians.

Today is a day of business as usual.

Today indeed is a sad day.

Today is a day many might wonder why Nigeria still tops Transparency International list as one of the most corrupt nations on earth?Today is the answer to such questions.

Today is a day many wonder why haven’t we progress and sit in same development stage as Malaysia or Singapore etc, nations that we were once better off than? Today is your answer..

Will Nigeria ever prosper.. Sorry the answer is NO. Things will definitely get worse in this country and we must tighten our belts.
