    Nigerian population confronts it's fustration.

    The military take over of power in Nigeria could be seen as the genesis of a nation's woo.Sadly the military regime of IBB introduced a high scale of corruption.
    The introduction of Olusegun Obasanjo as a selected head of state was a major blunder by the military class that were king-makers then,OBJ's sudden power tussle with his highly favored military click mostly from the norther part of the nation,has brought un-told hardship to the nation.Coupled with the imposition of the Goodluck agenda on the populance,the state media mostly gave Goodluck a face-lift which helped in the selling of the Goodluck agenda,after the election it's been a cold war,not until recent times.Meanwhile most of the nation's treasury has been badly mis-managed by the leadership of the ruling party(OBJ),which has caused a serious corncern on the northern power brokers warranting most of them to lose either their oil blocks or other form of investments.
    Now the Goodluck agenda has become Badluck and also bad news because it's common believe that the President is a stooge of OBJ.
    It's also alleged that OBJ is using the President to fight his opponents.Therefore the up-coming of the Boko Haram which many believe is formed by the retired Amry Generals from the north being equally suspected to funded also by most northern governors and well placed individuals (eg) politicians and business men.
    All in bid to stop OBJ's hijacking of power,or spliting of the nation called Nigeria.
    In conclusion the looting of the nation's economy is sadly reflecting on the populance who can't afford three square meals and are on red alert for a revolution.
    The Nigeria's fustrated population is set to confront it's fustrations.
