According to Ebuka, the student who wants to be a dictator made a case for it, stating that only brute force can stop Nigerians from being corrupt and make them actually obey rules and authority. His tweets reads;
Highlight of my week has to be speaking to teenage students about choosing a career path, and a student standing up to say he wants to be a dictator!!!
I’d simply asked; “How many here want a career that their parents don’t support?” Some students stood up to say they wanted to be rappers, footballers, TV producers, etc… Then I heard “Dictator”. I wasn’t ready…
He did make a case for it, talking about how only brute force can stop Nigerians from being corrupt and make them actually obey rules and authority. Said politicians switching parties will never help.
It may have been a weird/funny moment but it was quite instructive to me about how younger Nigerians really perceive governance in their country.
Everyone is watching…
This tweet is coming ahead of the 2019 general elections, which has seen so many Nigerian politicians dumping their parties for others they think will give them better chances in the poll. On the other hand, it was reported yesterday that Spanish lawmakers on Thursday voted to remove the remains of dictator Francisco Franco from a mausoleum where tens of thousands of victims of the 1936-39 civil war that brought him to power are also laid to rest.
