The truth however is that, Nigeria has a long way to go, and no matter how we progress on the journey today, we are learning, and we will continue to learn. There are so many thing that is wrong with this country, any little achievement should be encouraged, less we all have to abandon this country and criticise anything about it from a far - outside the country.
The further truth is that, even if some of us doing the criticism today were privilege to be in the helm of affairs today, others will also criticise us by pointing out the evil in our government.
Like Akin replied in his blog, our high expectations posture had actually earned us the best in Africa since independence, it has given us the best man to rule us since independence and it has also prevent some cabal to rule us even though we prefer Abiola in 1992, Gani Fawehinmi in 2003 and Pat Utomi in 2007. Our high expectations posture has even make the likes of Akin to blog from outside the country (I hope I am right) and criticising the government from diaspora.
What is on ground now is the real Nigeria, tell me who has succeeded in sterring its course away from low expectations to your Akin's high expectations since Independence. I live in real Nigeria, and i dare say, I live with it.
Like I always said elsewhere in my blog, the best way to fight for Akin's seeming mirage high expectations in this country, is to join the system and fight within, if we cant fight them, join them. If we fight for this 'high expectations' till thy kingdom come, those who had made us do with low expectations will continue to have their way, while leaving us to expect the 'high expectations' and probably transfer the expectations to our next generations.
So, I ponder again, When and for how long will this 'high expectations' come? Perhaps Akin had a good answer.
So Like I said yesterday, the election observers/monitoring group should shut up, less they ignite more trouble for us with their utterances, I guess this is the best Nigeria could afford as an election giving what is on ground compare to their own country where everything seems perfect, no wonder Nigerians migrate to their countries. I stand by my write-up and I hasten to add that, everyone is entitled to his own opinion, Akin and Imnakoya inclusive.
