In the 90’s we were born
Then our journey in this noble country begun
A lot of experiences and elections have come to pass and we can’t understand
We have hoped for the best but always seen the same excuses that we can’t over-stand
Our Land is abundantly blessed with natural resources like Gold, Diamond, Timber a lot more and even recently Oil
What do we gain or have gained from such resources, this makes our hearts boil
The young employed are constantly taxed but benefit from nothing from these taxes we pay
Where did we go wrong?
What did we do wrong?
Politicians fight among themselves whilst we are below them observing
How many of them bring in money due to their influence (i don’t mean a loan) because we have to pay back a loan
I mean using their influence to get benefits or free Benjamins to undertake projects in this ‘oman’
You don’t use our taxes to do what you want and expect us to hail you for bringing up an innovation
Like seriously it is my money (tax) in fact taxes of citizens not your (Politician) personal fund organization
Hence you deserve no accolade
We can’t continue like this…
The whole idea of tax is to put funds from citizens together
Get that huge sum and push it into something profitable for the benefit of the citizenry
It is simple, the unemployed do pay a lot of indirect taxes
However the employed and high wage earners pay extra taxes like Pay as you earn (P.A.Y.E.)
Employers and other transactors do pay withholding taxes too
Just for the government to undertake Projects
For the benefit of all hence the rich pays for the poor to benefit then together we grow
But what do we see…the reverse!!!!
Day in Day out we put in energy in whatever we do
But what do we get from the government?
Diabolic politricking causing the citizenry to hustle!!!
Do we give up on this noble nation?
Do we keep praying?
Do we keep voting and still see things get worse?
Should we stop voting?
Do we have to rethink about the ages of most of our leaders?
Are they very proactive in this our technology era…
A lot carry IPADS but can’t use them
A lot have a phobia for technology
How do we survive in a technological era with our policies and strategies
Championed by leaders with a phobia for technology use!!!!!!!
Are the youth being involved in the governance of this country?
Are they failing us…
If the youth are being involved and they are technologically inclined but we are still not growing as a country
Then there is a big problem we need to address as a nation and a people
But hey it boils down to you and i.
Finally i have a title for this write up….
