There is somehow an inbred thinking among NIGERIANS that government should control everything. It is a very good excuse so we can absolve ourselves of any responsibility. And the politicians are happy because it now increases the scope for them to steal. And this idea unfortunately is even more pronounced among the elites and shows up in all kinds of rationalization a of patently absurd government policies and pronouncements. Some how we have adopted the emirate principle with all powers to the emir. Sad.
