    So a young Nigerian citizen , who studied hard, made the grades is denied admission in a Federal Government institution. ( This is despite the disadvantages of the civil war, when they could not go to school for obvious reasons).

    Another citizen who for whatever reason, did not quite make the grades got admitted because few people from his/ her area are educated.

    The jobs come and the ones who claim to be under educated, get them.
    The super educated areas, With Million oif super educated people ( according to the government), get nothing.

    Could someone define marginalization for me?

    This is just an example. There are still several.
    We need to have a dialogue, in order to move forward.

      @Taipan, Yoruba are not complaining wetin be your own. If dem replace the acting with your people, I trust you wont see anything wrong with it. NDLEA when one of her sons is really against the law. Pls waka tribalist, bitter people. I bet you guys will serve Lucifer if you find out hates PMB. In as much as I know you still have some sensible people amongst you, I can’t help but notice your hatred on every blog. If Nigerians doubt me, go on LindaIkeji and read comments esp by tribe. You will sure see the bad egg. Na only una dey, wetin make middlebelt, Calabar, rivers do. E dey una body.

      @Tee, Yorubas are not complaining? Omo Ale ni e. Obviously, one of the blind bats. All the Major parastatals have been flooded with Northerners. These people are like sugar ants, they colonise anywhere they find themselves just like Indians in the UK. Wait until you want a job and you cant get it becos you are not a Northerner. One Nigeria my foot.

    I hope this isn’t a deliberately mischievous reporting. Mrs Bode-George was only acting by virtue of her position as the most senior officer in NDLEA – She is still the Director General of NDLEA (for now) and while acting as Chairman still held her substantive position. So, in effect, she wasn’t replaced in the sense this post appears to portray it. This is nothing new or alarming or political in this move by the government.
