The abduction of more than 300 girls in Northern Nigeria has again brought the world community together in a way that requires commending. However, for some sectors of the intellectual or learned of our society to question the morality of the United States president for responding or commenting on the Nigerian crisis after 3 weeks cannot go unnoticed. Shouldn’t we be questioning the morality of irresponsible expenditure of African governments and having their political agendas all mixed up or confusing. Africa is host to countries which are among the poorest in the world and yet have some of the largest cabinet officers on their payrolls. After the September 11, 2001 did African governments honestly expect that Islamic fundamentalists would spare them with the vulnerability of high poverty levels? Shouldn’t we question why the other three large economies on the continent namely South Africa and Egypt have not responded or gone to Nigeria’s aid? African governments continue to have their meager resources all being spent on sustaining government officials, and their lavish styles we need to question the morality of these priorities and expenditure not America’s response time to the crisis. Join us Saturday as the ZBTR team reviews and analyses the Nigerian government- Boko Haram crisis and African government’s budget priorities.
