    I appreciate the style in your write-up my lecturer and Egbon, especially the way you always bring the issue of Nigeria’s underdevelopment to focus.

    At one point, I submitted that I was not going to write any newspapers contribution again as far as suggesting ways forward on the ground that there is nothing to be said that has not been said, and there is nothing to be written that has not been written only that we have been conquered by post colonialist comprador bourgeoisie who are unwilling to yield to people’s desire for development. I do not foresee a violent revolution but we definitely need a revolution of ideas to garner the people to support a move away from the past but where will the new leaders emerge from????
