Nigeria at 62 independence -By Isaiah Ogedegbe

Now that Nigeria is sixty two years, we must “grow up” and deal with the issues of corruption. Where corruption thrives, there cannot be economic development.

A fool at forty years is a fool forever. Could the same be said of Nigeria that is now sixty two years old? Just yesterday, Nigeria became sixty two years old, yet our economy still seems to be creeping just like a baby. Nigerians are complaining; there is hunger everywhere. The prices of commodities in the market have gone up; fuel price has gone up too.

As a nation, we cannot boast of twenty four hours power supply for a single day. People are celebrating the independence in darkness; there is no electricity to watch the independence celebration on television or listen to it on radio. It is a shame.

Some children have never been to school and have no hope of going to school, because there is no money to send them to school.

Many youths are jobless; they are not lazy, but cannot find any employment opportunity anywhere. Our people are suffering.

Now that Nigeria is sixty two years, we must “grow up” and deal with the issues of corruption. Where corruption thrives, there cannot be economic development.
