Nigeria's blessing in disguise, the discovery of black gold on their shores, was meant to propell the whole nation into realms of wealth, jobs, homes, affluence, good health care, and basic prosperity for every Nigerian. This Utopian dream has now turned into a black, sticky quagmire of total corruption with $16.5 billion dollars being unaccounted for; now guess where it has all gone?
As most Nigerians fight against poverty, terrorism, disease, and all other aspects of a wretched life, some rascal has gallivanted off to his Swiss account, tax free of course, $16 billion dollars wealthier and no Nigerian authority can find the scallywag!
In fact, the Nigerian authorities do not wish to find whoever nicked the money, because they're all corrupt too! So what's new you all ask? Nothing basically, most African nations are totally corrupt, and the Nigerian example is only exacerbated by the billions of lost revenue churned over by their oil industry. Whereby other African nations just nick charity billions donated to them by richer nations to help fight poverty, etc.
Because of all of this corruption, many poor Africans are forced to jump into rowing boats, navigate the Atlantic and hope to land in Europe for a better life when all the time European nations are sending $billions of aid into their countries to build new palaces for their glorious leaders, finance private yachts, and wonderful holidays in their tax free homes on tax free islands in the Caribbean, among other luxuries, including massive diamonds, luxury whores, expensive jewellery, etc. etc!
So why am I writing this horrific news report to the world, no reason at all actually! I was bored looking at Mariah Carey's 6 million buck engagement ring and thought of "Black Magic Woman"!
