Driving the citizen mind off, putting the people in the state of feeling helpful, playing with the hearts of the masses, the citizens are dejected by the unfulfilled plan. it's the prime duty of the government to keep the society intact and in peace, the duty of the government to purse good fiscal monetary policies that will promote economic growth and development .
Nigeria collectively with the present economic predicament and stagflation facing the nation as proved the law of gravity wrong. I believed everybody should be cognizant of the law of gravity which States that anything that goes up, comes down and its does. But referring to Nigeria Case it differs.

The way things are going one begins to wonder where our priority lies or what is left to actually motivate one.
