“I Weep For My Country”

-A Country Facing Poignant Exploration And Decapitation


Dr. Chris Okobah

By Chris Okobah (PhD)

A nation endowed with abundant natural resources and human intellect, yet shackled by the chains of abject poverty, deprivation, institutional corruption, and authoritarian government.

Today we holistically face escalating insecurities and the shadows of national anarchy. In the midst of unparalleled potential, the tears fall for the

unfulfilled promises and unrealized dreams, as the citizens yearn for a transformative journey towards justice, prosperity, and a brighter collective future.

From the disaster that took place in Imo, Bayelsa and Kogi States, it is glaringly clear how the corrosive influence of corrupt and compromised judiciary has plunged Nigeria into catastrophe.

The courts which are supposed to be the bedrock of justice and act as safeguards have been tainted, the very pillars sustaining fair and equitable society has crumbled. Legal systems,

intended to safeguard citizens, instead perpetuate injustice, eroding trust in the rule of law. As judicial integrity wanes, the consequences

reverberate through every facet of governance, breeding a culture of impunity and exacerbating societal divisions.

Nigeria now finds itself ensnared in the quagmire of legal decay, where the pursuit of truth and fairness becomes a casualty,

and the fabric of a just society unravels in the face of a compromised judiciary.

Those celebrating today shall equally weep tomorrow. Power is transient.
