Nigerians are aware that nothing good comes easy but the ongoing hardship in the country was not one of the promises made by the current administration during the campaigns for the last general elections that put in place the so-called change.

It has become the tradition of leaders in Nigeria to make promises and do the opposite of what they have promised the people. It has also become a law in Nigeria that lies can be said during campaigns for elections to deceive and win the heart of the citizenry. 

It is becoming clearer that the Nigerian leaders can never care for their people thereby ensuring the availability of basic necessities of life for them.

However, where is the 24-hour electricity supply promised during the campaigns? Where is the N5,000 to unemployed youths promised during the campaigns? Where is the terrorists’ free society we were promised during the campaigns? Aside from the above mentioned promises, there are many more and none has been fulfilled. Nigerians were duped by the people that constituted the current administration. Nigerians were used by these selfish leaders to get to where they are today for their personal benefits. 

Nigerians were charmed with the beautifully packaged lies by the people that constituted this administration to enable them get the opportunity that could make them continue enriching themselves by making policies that are hard on Nigerians but soft on them.

Nevertheless, it is not an appeal but a demand that the promises made during the campaigns for the last general elections should be fulfilled. It is a clarion call for Nigerians to insist that our leaders fulfil all the promises they made during the campaigns or institute a legal force that can push them out of their offices for lack of trust, integrity, transparency, accountability and fairness.

We should not continue keeping quiet; we should pressure our leaders to do the needful; we should not be scared of torture, harassment and any other form of victimisation from any of the leaders.

We say no to the ongoing hardship and you have to end it now.

All hands must be on deck, with resilient, accountability & transparency things will come back to right track. Though we expect our leaders to shun corruption.
