Charly Boy has opened up on the situation in the country and how hopeless it all seems in a piece he titles "You".

The "Area Fada" talks about how the many creative, progressive and hardworking Nigerians are ruled by a few riffraffs, scumbags, fraudsters and scavengers. He also says the 2015 elections hold no hope.

My personal person, personally I know what you are going through this season, these are crazy times, and most of us are about to snap, life is really unpredictable with its twisted sense of humour.

I dey feel you die my guy, I understand your pain, your hopelessness in an environment that has promised so much but have given so little. With this mass unemployment, consistent frustration and stagnation, coupled with the anticipation of who will lead you in 2015, how can you break this jinx you ask?

I represent you all in this wilderness in the middle of nowhere. I know the frustration you face in trying to carve a niche for yourself, a place to be rooted, something to engage your being with, and something to make you look forward to tomorrow.

I am sure you want something to live for and find your way to joy. My person, I know e don tey wey  your life dey waka anyhow,  I see how so many of us have lost faith in this country with many more convinced that there can be no chance of a turn around, because they see Naija as a lost case.

Those that have power and are in power, are far too comfortable to notice the pain of those who suffer, and those who suffer have no power to speak the truth to power, on one hand are those corrupted by power, and on the other, are those corrupted by weakness and foolish fear(Worse still 2015 election brings no hope with it).

However critical our situation is, it is time for exceptional Naijas to rescue us; no race ever made it this far without breaking away from the clutches of sycophants and narrow minded mindset.  Germany lost Hitler; America released the slaves and let the plantation rot. Great Britain finally stopped trying to colonize everybody and beat a wise retreat into their own backyard.

Egyptian youths have had enough, even Ghana called a spade a spade, and because they did, they are doing better. Name names, browse through the civilizations, you will see this painful rugged road stretch out ahead of mankind like a mathematical formula surviving on the strength of its validity.

I must confess that I have had periods of extended self-pity, sometimes I have felt conned by this country, some other times I wish I was still at the prime of my youth so I could really lash out physically on all those who have sold our future. We have all ended up trusting nobody and believing in nobody.  Still, I have faith that is why I will always believe in the "exceptional" few who I know can salvage what's left of our country.

And you may just be one of them.  It has been story, story, story for decades now as we commenced our fast forward descend. It is shameful, it is unbelievable that in a country packed full with more than a few very creative, progressive, hardworking intellectuals, we let riffraff, scumbags, fraudsters, scavengers hold sway, hummmmmmmm, what a mess.

From the East to the West, from the South to the North, from the senate to the executives all I see is the growing number of scammers and gangsters. Even this coming election na scam, but are we just going to sit and watch? My guy, this home grown ‘Demoncrazy’ is turning into something worse than ‘kleptocracy’. For people without integrity we know that nothing else matters to them. My guy, we cannot afford to ignore our future and allow the privileged few to extinguish us. Hummmmmm!!!!

You are asking me what we should DO? My guy, just be the change YOU want to see first. The rot has gone way past those at the top.
