Attacks on our Universities.

Woke up this morning with a terrible headache as usual all thanks to my Landlord who packs his car in a house he gave out as ''rent'' to students. He always has the habit of warming his vehicle around 6am Haba! Mallam 6am. Not fair at all.
      Back to the issue at hand, still grumbling from my Landlords bad habit as I would put it, I was called by my sis in Kano that Bayero University Kano (BUK) had been bombed got to know later that it was just a part of it which was used by Catholic students. It was such a sad news and it got me thinking again about the future of my once peaceful Nation called Nigeria. Where did we go wrong, how do we redeem our present situation? these and more questions kept coming into my head.
     Just few days ago it was Gombe State University in which its administrative building was bombed now BUK. Who is so mean and heartless as to attack innocent students? If u have a problem with someone you get your grievances across in a diplomatic manner and through the right channel. Am trying as much as possible to be objective but I know the leadership of this country has failed woefully in providing adequate security for the common man. We have bad leaders in this country and they didn't just become bad today they have been so for a while now and we Nigerians kept quiet because we are known for ''Suffering and Smiling'' according to the music legend Fela Kuti.
     Am tired of seeing the innocent lose their lives and nothing is been done about it , am tired of listening to the same statement from the President and his media spokesperson saying ''We are on top of the situation and this menace would soon come to an end''  I've had enough and am fed up. It seems our representatives don't even care about us, they have all alienated themselves from those who voted them in. I wish my fellow Nigerians can rise to their feet and help put a stop to this, everything happening today is just as a result of the decadence in the society.
     Not only does it break the heart, it has also brought about so much religious and ethnic bigotry that it brings tears to my eyes. Browsing through the social media all ones sees is religious and ethnic bigotry, we cant forge ahead with such bitterness in our hearts. My religion Islam is the worst hit in this present scenario. I don't believe they are Muslims and am not pointing fingers but I know no religion tolerates such, I believe they are mercenaries brought to create disunity in this country. I know what my religion preaches and this isn't inclusive, my religion is a religion of peace and total submission to the will of ALLAH. I won't be deterred I  would keep trying to make people see reasons. Even the educated ones that one would think can see objectively are not left out in this bigotry syndrome as i would call it.
      I pray for peace to return to my Nation and also for God to grant eternal rest to those who lost their lives. May their souls rest in perfect peace(Amin). The perpetrators and sponsors of this heinous crime to humanity shall be brought to book that, I believe in.
