Nigeria: No useful opposition

Thots of a Naijaman writes that Nigeria is in a shambles - “There is no opposition anymore. Political parties are now at the mercy of the state controlled “Independent” electoral commission, a commission that awards political office to ‘deserving’ government cronies. Opponents of the Government are hounded night and day by the EFCC, while government officials smile to foreign banks with their loot.”
