“Dear federal government…. You are killing the future of Nigeria” – Vector speaks on Planned hike in Data Tariffs



vector-open-letter-to-fgnRapper Vector has penned an interesting open letter to the Federal Government concerning the planned increase in data tariffs by the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC).

He posted the following on his Instagram Page:

Dear Federal Government:

You have come a long way with your policies and rule. You have concerned yourself with nothing but the present hence making it look like the constitution has to be remixed and renamed “Your WILL” before your demise. You have ignored the children you saw grow and focused on the ones from your sperm cells and ovulation that you aren’t seeing grow because they have been shipped off to “better grounds” for education.

You have put your wives in other rooms… forgetting (if you married a good woman) (that) they balance you when you go astray. You have failed to embrace the spirit and letter of the Almighty you worship be it any religion. You have failed the man you see in the mirror because he isn’t a beast or metaphysical being you don’t understand. No, He is the posterboy/girl for greed. You have forgotten how you felt when you were coming up but remember this… you will not forget how you fall. Your money… my bad… our money you take will shame you when you need it the most. The hustlers are finding ways to be better but you just want to take from them without giving back. You focus on chasing thieves but never focus on securing the vault they steal from.

In the history of our existence as a generation, we have never gotten levelled platforms to play as we have gotten with the internet. The people have become more exposed to business ideas, global news, information sharing from continent to continent between seconds. Industry has gotten global awareness because of this.

Music has started to look better just because with data you can put up your craft be it music or painting or write ups or poems or comedy or pets or life to make people happy in a steady sinking world of frustrating conflicting governance and hustle.

You concern yourself with your perceived negatives over the objective positives. You are killing the future of Nigeria. You are killing the future of Nigeria. Internet is almost free in a lot of “advanced” countries too. Be careful Nigeria… don’t ruin yourself. DON’T!!!

    Nigeria is really a joke! This is what you get when u have an old man with no fresh ideas and a bunch of old advisers with mediocre ideas and no iota of guts to challenge what will not do the people good! Charlie boy was right , the youths of Nigeria really needs to wake up and do something! In the west, their govt try to create policies that will making living easy for its citizens ofcourse some will gain and some will lose but the goal is to have a majority who are comfortable! In Nigeria? They have no goal or focus, the aim rather is to make policies that frustrates its citizens and bruises their pocket and a majority suffer and a few make big bucks! God must judge every single leader that didn’t do right for Nigeria whilst in power! It will end in shame for y’all!! #rant over

      Shebi when Charly Boy was challenging the youths to stand up and fight BNers like EE and co were busy spewing rubbish at him, now it has come to this. Who knows maybe the lack of access to affordable data will flip the switch in our heads and we’ll put our phones down and notice how bad things have gotten whilst we were busy living in a virtual world that doesn’t exist

    “You focus on chasing thieves but never focus on securing the vault they steal from.”

    This is my entire problem with the so called war against corruption. A futile effort at best.

    Vector almost broke into a song with this letter. The wordsmitting and metaphors made it read like a mixed tape. But i understand his mixed feelings. If the FedGov, NCC and thier telecoms sidechicks know what is good for them, they should just #LeaveOurDataAlone.

    The hike is really for the big players because they are introducing a price floor for the smaller player and new entrants. The aim is to introduce competition so Nigerians have more options and get a better deal
