    Good point, BUT the first question to ask is: WHY HAVE NIGERIANS, INCLUDING THE HEAD OF STATE, NOT PAID ATTENTION TO THE MASS MURDERS OF FELLOW NIGERIANS?

    Why have we become so insensitive and apathetic about the gruesome murders of innocent Nigerians? If we don’t care about one another, why should we expect outsiders to care about us? Let us remove the “log” in our own eyes before attempting to remove the “speck” in the eyes of others!

      Dear S. Bisi,

      Thanks very much for this. You are very correct about Nigerians’ apathy about such a serious matter that even brings into sharp focus our lack of giving importance to important matters, our care for our fellow compatriots, particularly very young ones and, not less important, Nigeria’s claim to being a nation.

      It took months before the president of a country with such an urgent, horrible and important matter would visit Chibok, the home of the kidnapped girls; it’s taken years – now – before the leadership of this contraption of a country would even [sort of] acknowledge that a problem really does exist that calls for urgency in finding a solution.

      How we treat ourselves as individuals, a social group or a country does indeed dictate how others would treat us.

      Sincere regards,
      TOLA.
