Masses stealing from the Masses during COVID-19

News Hub Creator 04/3/2020

No doubt, the outbreak of Corona Virus (COVID-19) has brought the true character of most Nigerians in the middle class and the lower class to the fore. Many Nigerians have now see exploitation as their rights during this unfortunate pandemic.

The COVID-19 which has proven to be more deadly than any disease in human history has put responsibility on the lap of everyone as both small and big member of the Nigerian society have become a decision maker. How? The answer is not farfetched; the prices of goods in the market have suddenly soared higher than anyone could ever imagine in the last few days.

It all started from transportation costs when many motorists and public transport owners increased drastically the prices of transportation even in short distances that used to be for a small amount of money. Drivers, as well as their assistants-conductors now see the pandemic as the opportunity to milk the people off of their hard earned money and create wealth for themselves.

Although, this has always been the characteristics of Nigerians as many of them are greedy but put the blame on the Federal Government (FG) because they hate taking responsibilities for their actions. They create a corrupt system and allege that the government is responsible even for their own faults.

Since the outbreak of COVID-19, the average Nigerian has become the easy prey of exploitation to the masses who sells life necessity goods such as; food items, drugs, and other commodities that are necessary for human survival. E.g., the prices of vitamin C, chloroquine, water, ginger etc.

For instance, the market prices for many goods have risen beyond reasonable prices. Many people have made a fortune from this unfortunate incident and many are still in the business of making exorbitant profits from the sales of their goods.

Popular choreography maker and professional dancer, Kaffy took to the social media recently to condemn in rage the unnecessary hike in the prices of ginger which used to be very cheap but because there has been information about how useful it is at this period, the price has increased beyond any reasonable explanation.

The Nigerian masses have also come out to complain about the hike in transportation cost even amidst the reduction in the price of Petroleum Motor Spirit (PMS) and the justification by the perpetrators for this acts, has been that this is the best way they could make their money at this trying times.

A woman who sells food stuffs on my street, went to the market to restock her goods, only to return and increase the prices of rice, beans, Spaghetti, oil etc already in her shop to prices beyond the reach of many average Nigerians because she says the prices have soared higher in the market. The question is how much did she buy the ones left in her stock before she went to the market to restock? Yet she increased the prices even before she finished the sales of those, who are to blame for all these exploitation? Is it President Muhammadu Buhari (PMB)?

It is high time we all wake up to the realities of this country, there is very little the government can do for us, if an average person on the street is not looking for the interest of her fellow average citizen, then who would?

If the masses keep milking each other at the expense of the safety of life and survival of many in the face of a deadly pandemic ravaging the entire world, then is it truly the fault of the government? Is it the president that ordered the increase in the prices of food items in the market?

Many Nigerians started the blame game as soon as the President made the national address 7pm on Sunday, calling the president names and exonerating themselves from those who are to share the responsibility because they feel they are not corrupt, forgetting that, it is really not the problems of the president but the problems of the masses.

If the masses cannot protect the interests of fellow masses like them, who will do that for them? Everyone wants to make wealth for themselves at the slightest of opportunity, how then will the country move forward if we all have the greed mindset of settling family and friends first before any other things.

Let’s wake up to the clarion call of taking responsibilities and being a true Nigerian, one with a sense of responsibility for others and for her country, then and only will Nigeria join other countries of the world that can be called DEVELOPED!
