Over time I have asked myself where are the intellectuals in Nigeria. I have asked myself these questions because today in Nigeria things do not seem to be working well. All over the country, most of the persons who are handling positions (appointments) are given based on friendship basis or compensation. But the real persons who are vested with the requisite knowledge are relegated or ignored due to the fact that most leaders are scared that intellectuals will argue with them or challenge their ideas if there are not towing professional line.
