Tributary on our streets

In the Nigeria where I grew to be knowledgeable and wise, I was made made to believe that democracy is the best phenomenon to live with. Now that the Nigeria brand of democracy has been with us for over 12 years, I'm left wondering on which is better, military or democracy. The actuality of the tributaries on our street is the fact that roads are in deplorable conditions, we are in a raining season, and the drainage system is bad, therefore, our beautiful streets are waterlogged. Students do not need to go to long distances for excursion, it's now what we live with. What then is the way out?

Politicking must stop, government must awake to its responsibility. Enough of subsidy distractions and single tenure agenda. What we want are decent infrastructure and social amenities. We want water to flow in good drainage, we want our streets to be lighted for good. However, in spite of the streams that are becoming big rivers in our streets and on our roads, Nigeria is alive.
