The Passive Employers.

In the wake of the 2023 presidential elections, Nigerians need to take a stand; either vote out their oppressors or continue in the circle of poverty and underdevelopment that has besieged the country over the last decades.

The average Nigerian employer emphasizes certifications, qualifications, and a decent background as prerequisites for prospective employees in their organization. There's hardly ever any job description that one doesn't find these requirements in Nigeria. This shows how much value Nigerians place on knowledgeability, specialization, decency, hard work, and honesty as relevant factors for productivity. 

For a people that enlist all of these requirements for job seekers, no matter how menial, I am bewildered at the way Nigerians treat those applying for the topmost office in the country; the office of the president. I have watched in awe and disgust, over the past few months, at how several individuals expressed interest in being president of Nigeria. Such that, it seems the office has been reduced to the headquarters of jokers. 

Those who can not govern their states well enough to live in them, those who have heavy corruption allegations levied against them, and those whose source of wealth, age, and even name remains a source of mystery have all shown interest in being president. Nigerians, the employers, in this case, seem not to be interested in interrogating the inadequacies of these characters; some of them, parading themselves as aspirants, should be behind bars!

So I wonder, like Steven wonder, why Nigerians are so passive in evaluating the backgrounds, qualifications, ideas, expertise, and conscience of those who want to manage their economy, security,d general wellbeing in 2023 and beyond. It is high time we woke up to our duties as citizens. May Nigeria not perish.
