The Wasted Years records the painful role of Nigeria's political class in the under development of the country between 1999 and 2007. The extensive and almost irreparable damage done the nation's economy and social structures by those who pull the strings of the nation's machinery of government cannot be cataloged in one expression. Regrettably, the media, which is the citizens' beacon of hope for responsible and accountable leadership seem to have compromised its professional ethics and looked the other ways as those in government pillage and ravage the country's resources. Perhaps understandably. In a country where corruption and mediocrity tear through the heart of her economy, integrity counts for nothing, if at all retained in the lexicography of the people. Unfortunately the few media practitioners and visionary political leaders that exist are drowned in the sea of the infamous group. This has resulted in the many years the nation has wasted by taking so much from the land to feed so few, and to impoverish so large a population of the Nigerian people. Nigeria is like an arable land invaded and infested by locusts.
