  下文选段选自作家Chinua Achebe在尼日利亚之殇 的第四章节,揭露了尼日利亚领导人树立错误的信条:“团结和信仰”。这些信条是错误的原因是“团结和信仰”容易被虚伪份子歌颂,并粉饰成为只为满足领导层无尽欲望服务而不顾民众利益的道德工具。这是对民众的道德绑架。Chinua Achebe认为比起“团结和信仰”,“公正和诚信”更能直接暴露当下社会丑态,请发深思和惠民的改革。

  来自领导层的反腐力量能激发国家发展的正能量。

  Chapter 4 Leadership, Nigerian-Style

  But the really interesting question is why were we drawn in the first place to concepts like unity and faith with their potentialities for looseness? Why did we not think, for example, of such concepts as Justice and Honesty which cannot be so easily directed to undesirable ends? Justice never prompts the question: Justice for what? Neither does Honesty or Truth. Is it possible that as a nation we instinctively chose to extol easy virtues which are amenable to the manipulation of hypocrites, rather than difficult ones which would have imposed the strain of seriousness upon us? And was that one of the legacies of our Founding Fathers?

  One shining act of bold, selfless leadership at the top, such as unambiguous refusal to be corrupt or tolerate corruption the fountain of authority, will radiate powerful sensations of well-being and pride through every nerve and artery of national life.

  用比喻这一修辞手法痛批了民众“被去民主权”的原因。

  Chapter 10 The Example of Aminu Kano

  But as in every other department of our national life we perform below our potential, like a car with a little water in its fuel tank, accumulated dirt in its carburetor and carbon deposit on its spark plugs. In the specific matter of elections we have deprived ourselves of our potential power over politicians by falling prey to ethnicity and other divisive bogeys they conjure up and harness to their band-waggon.
