Nigeria Trapped in Anomie?

Idumange John has written a thorough critical analysis of the present state of Nigeria in "Nigeria trapped in anomie?" and if you really care about Nigeria, read it now.

There is nothing new to blog on Nigeria, because Nigeria is still trapped in the vicious circle of corruption and political gangsterism.

The latest news on Nigeria is on the side bar and you can read and send me your informed commentary if you want to have it published on Nigerian Times.

The tragedy of the Nigerian crisis is the fact that our corrupt, evil and wicked rulers are unrepentant and their hypocritical Pastors and Imams are as guilty as these devils perpetrating the evils plaguing Nigeria.

Until we sack them from the corridors of power, Nigeria will still be trapped in socio-political anomie.

nigeria is not trapped in anomie;which is the absence of social norms and values.no,nigeria is presenting its natural true self one that has come to the fore as a result of decades of mismanagement and debuchery,its called lack of nationhood.no adminstration since independence has worked to augment all the forces that make up nigeria into a true nation.partisan politics hsas been and contines to be the order of the day.social norms do exist in our respective communities so we cannot say anomie.the answer is alot more sophisticated than that.the implementation is simplistic with the right mindset but not if political gangsterism is the order of the day,that leaves no room whatsoever for constructive dialogue.to illustrate my point.how on earth do we explain the oxymoron ;high level supporters of ex governor james ibori!!.only in nigeria will an ex felon be lauded with such incredulity.my friends nigeria is only great if we want it to be.presently it is an economic enclave where a few can make a fortune quite easily.at this stage ,a nation dream on
