Blame casting won't help. Nigeria has suffered from substandard leadership, which was often a mirror of the citizenry at each epoch.

The Post-Independence generation was feckless, post-Civil War fatalistic and post-Oil Boom reckless.
So, today's Nigeria is what you get when 'No Skin Pain' is joined by 'Siddon Look' who is followed by 'I Don't Care.'

Now things have come to a head. All the cans (of worms) kicked down the road by the 2 earlier generations are being fired back upstream by the last generation.
Now, no one is at ease. Each generation resents the ones before or after. Without institutions to diffuse the starkness of our national distress, our institutional memory is clogged with generational buck-passing and blame casting, like we currently do.
Like the 6 blind men who went to see an elephant in that classic poem, the 3 epochs of Nigerians living today hold loud, abrasive views on which of them is at fault for the present national malaise. Like the 6 blind men, each is somewhat right, but all dead wrong.
So, whether your epoch ate full chicken 😋, watched Tales By Moonlight 👏🏼 or are watching #BBNaija19 🤦‍♂️ #Nigeria won't get better by 'No Skin Pain', 'Siddon Look' or 'I Don't Care' attitude. Anyone can be the Change and we must work together if we're to get Nigeria working.
