The Nigerian Economy 21 years after its longest-running Democracy

Government of the people, for the people, and by the people. That’s the definition of democracy, which is the form of government under which Nigeria and Nigerians have been governed for the past 21 years. Another description says Democracy is the type of political power where the government is considered the servant of the people. 
Dr. Ozoemene describes Nigeria’s federal structure as a leech that is sucking the life-blood out of the system of the entire country. According to him, “if states are allowed to make decision on their own, we will begin to see oasis of excellence around the country.” 
He continues, “Nigeria’s cost of governance is like a Level-17 civil servant who has four wives and twenty-five children and he’s spending money like his colleauge who is also a Level-17 but a bachelor. Both men have the same income. The bachelor says he’s rich and the man with four wives also says he is rich.”
