It is no longer news that the country is enjoying democractic rule. It is no longer news that two parties, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and All Progressive Congress (APC) have been in governance for years.

But the perhaps painful news now is despite the abundance of God-given wealth through endownment of natural resources, most Nigerians have nothing to show as dividends of democracy based on bad leadership with their bad governance that have continued make Nigerians to swim in poverty.

The release by World Bank is evidence of how bad governance by both federal and state governments has subjected the people to abject poverty in the midst of plenty.
