NIGERIAN ‘YOOTS’

When Emmanuel Macron won his country’s confidence to be their next President, Nigerian youth shouted for the umpteenth time how the youth need to take over the affairs of this country up to the Presidency, how they’ve been unfairly treated, blah, blah, blah. They were grieved.

If it is on the front burner, news worthy item and so on and forth, I’ll engage for a bit and move on; these issues are there anyway to pick up at any point. I’m derailing. Nigeria has the singular honour of being the most demystified mystery; I mean everyone knows by now how corrupt and confused we are but the mystery is we are still standing; bandaged, patched and all. We are a good example of the ‘more you see, hear and read; the more you will never understand. Let’s take a look at the happenings...
