Popular Nigerian comedian I Go Dye, recently used his social media platform to bare his mind and speak up on some pressing issues in the country that needs to be properly looked into, by officials in government.
In a lengthy post shared on Instagram, the comedian started off by painfully presenting the issue of poverty in the country, noting that ex-leaders that have taken their exit from office, continue to enjoy benefit packages while elder statesmen who have given their sweat and blood for the nation are left to toil for their rightful entitlements.
He recounted an experience he witnessed in Benin in which people who have labored for the country for a period of 35 years were subjected to harsh conditions in a bid to be get their pension.
I Go Dye queried if elected officials were made to go through such conditions even if they only gave 4 or at the most 8 years of their lives in service to the country.
"My question to the federal government and our legislators is, if this is how they suffer to get there packages for just eight or four years of service as elected officials? The freedom of democracy has created monsters in our lives, breeding demons in the midst of a religious society that has no value for human lives, no conscience to care for our neighbors." he said.
Going further, the comic act approached the issue of the high numbers of job seekers in the country, expressing that no law has been put in place to drastically reduce the development. He added that even the life expectancy of the average Nigerian has not been improved.
He said: "Till date no law has been created to reduce the unemployment rate,neither has the life expectancy improved. People are running out of this country just to walk away from this freedom that is embodied in chains."
Bringing his address to a close, I Go Dye expressed that he weeps for his country as the nation is on another journey to handover government to a new group of elected leaders who are self-absorbed and care less for the lives of the old,young and generations to come
