The agony of the common man in Nigerian today

Published Jul 12, 2022

Looking at the situation of things in the last few years, it is difficult to convince anybody to vote, but “things can get worse if people decide not to vote”. Nigeria is in a critical situation that it must have to be rescued by every well-meaning citizen. Our votes can only do this. The NBS reported that the annual food inflation rate rose for the 24th consecutive month to 20.75 percent in October from 20.71 percent in September this year, owing to further increases in the prices of essential food items. There is no need to ask for what the plights of the masses are now. They are getting poorer daily, and education and healthcare are far out of their reach. According to data obtained from Nigeria Security Tracker (NKST), a project of the Council on Foreign Relations” Africa programme, in the first six weeks of 2021, over 1,525 persons were killed across the country. According to a report by Global Rights, the 1,525 deaths are about half of the 3,188 lives lost between January and December 2019.  Yet,farmers-herders clashes took a deadlier turn in the last six years, with the clash resulting in 10 deaths, more than Boko Haram killings in the past six years. The government has failed Nigerians over the years, but we can’t keep folding our hands, feeling less concerned during elections, will keeping quiet help anybody?
