Nigerian Musician Simi is not happy about how the actions of the government and citizens have damaged the image of the country.
She asserts that the situation is an eyesore, to say the least, because perpetrators of malicious acts have gone unpunished as a result of institutional failure.
Expressing her fury in a series of tweets, Simi said:
“Nigeria is a fucking scary place to be. The worst part is a lot of crazy stuff happens because they KNOW there will be no consequences. It’s not rocket science. But how do we get from where we are to where we need to be?? + it’s not just the government, it’s us too.
“We’re just getting by. No confidence in this broken system. So we hope that today is good for us and that we see tomorrow. Rinse and repeat. Surviving, instead of actually living.”
A disappointed Simi could not fathom why people are only interested in positions instead of working towards making the lives of others better.
What irks her the most is the fact that these leaders are rather served by the citizens.
She scribes: “We have people fighting for leadership positions only to serve themselves. Not us. They really couldn’t give less of a fuck about us. STILL we turn on each other to serve them. So absolutely, ridiculously stupid! We’re supposed to be on the same side.
“But it’s not enough for only a few people to think this way. Because why on earth should I fight if I know you won’t have my back. Why on earth would you fight if you think I won’t fight with you? So you see – the problem is us.”
