Quoted @NGRFacts

The life expectancy on average Nigerian is 52 years, One of the lowest in the world. This is primarily due to poor healthcare, a lack of clean water, and poor living conditions.

And we still live way past that age. If we had a good healthcare system Methuselah would have been outlived, cos Nigerians are strong people.

Perhaps Abacha’s most brutal act was the imprisonment, trial, and subsequent execution for treason of writer Ken Saro-Wiwa and other Ogoni activists who were concerned with the environmental exploitation of their region by multinational petroleum companies. #AbachaLoot

Abiola and Olusegun Obasanjo, a former military leader of Nigeria (1976–79), were jailed for treason. Wole Soyinka, Nigeria’s Nobel laureate, was also charged with treason, although he had voluntarily left the country. #AbachaLoot

Although Abacha promised a return to democracy, his actions were anything but democratic. He banned political activity of any kind, fired a large portion of the military, controlled the press, and assembled a personal security force of some 3,000 men. #AbachaLoot
