Some elders writing there is nothing to celebrate in Nigeria after 62 years, are part of those who ruined Nigeria.
Nigeria gave them her virgin blood;
they rough handled her;
She gave them scholarship;
Fed them in school;
Gave them employment while they were still doing NYSC
What did they give Nigeria in return?
Now as they near the mortuary;
Seeing their lonely grave;
Instead of atoning;
They write to blame others but themselves;
Each tribe blame another tribe’s thief but turbaning, crown theirs as hero of our tribe.
None speaks for traumatized Nigeria;
Younger ones share articles of lies and hate; Refuse to question their fathers roles in the killing of Nigeria;
They inherit their fathers enemies and shout Nigeria is not working;
Nothing to celebrate at 62.
