These two factors are social malaise that have eaten so deep into Nigeria, and on the verge of ruininig the country, any time soon, if adequate measures are not put in place to checkmate them.
A society, nation, or country functions well above average without them.
I am not a tribal bigot. I am a full bred Igbo however any day, Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso comes out to contest the presidential elections with Governor Rochas Okorocha, who is an Igbo man, and currently, my State Governor, I will give me unalloyed support to Kwankwaso just as I did for Muhammadu Buhari in 2015 against Good Luck Jonathan before I realised that he was an exponent of tribalism, and nepotism.
My choice for Kwankwaso, is simply because, he is a gentleman that plays politics without bitterness, and not a tribal bigot who is willing to unleash mayhem in the country like Buhari did because he lost an election or force his candidate on the masses just like Okorocha is bent on doing.
The earlier we Africans, particularly, Nigerians come to terms that tribalism, and nepotism, have nothing to offer us, and stop such practises, the better for us, and our polity.
