A deep ambiguity lingers in the official character of the average Nigerian politician. But this equivocalness is perhaps inherent in the very notion of chauvinist political culture. And it may just be, after all, that we have reached the climax or critical juncture of our national history when our character as Nigerians will be indefinable except in the context of double entrendre, viz: I am ambiguous, therefore, I am a Nigerian. Even the ruling class' claim to some decency in the conduct of public life has been abandoned, and moral decadence has become second nature. It is sad, to say the least, that at the dusk of the second decade of the twenty-first century, many Nigerian politicians are so desperate for power that they can do anything to achieve their inordinate ambition. They do this not because of any real or inner conviction to serve the people selflessly but because politics appears to be the only business with the highest return on investment in Nigeria. Consequently, we now have more of the gain politicians than the game ones.
