One could say the fall to this despicable level was fairly predictable many years before now, particularly if we consider the voracious and systematic culture of corruption that the Nigerian state adopted.

Could it be that no one saw this danger? No one made a patriotic call to warn of the impact to the generation now and the generations to come? Do we even have statesmen?
