The Federal Government of Nigeria (FGN) through the NCC has directed telecommunications giants to increase data tariffs and this has led to social media protests by Nigerians expressing their disappointment in the Nigerian government.
In the mood of reaction, Vector tha Viper called out the Federal Government in a post shared on Instagram on November 30, 2016, saying;
“Dear federal government,
You have come a long way with your policies and rules. 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 eductaion.
You have put your wives in other rooms BUT that of improtance forgetting (if you married a good woman) 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 d mirror because he isn’t a beast or metaphysical being you don’t understand. No, He is the poster boy/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 hustling 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 percieved 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.”
