Unfortunately, nowadays we are living in such a society and in such an environment where there are neither principles nor laws. Wishes and whims of a chosen few work in this country. As a result, men of merit suffer on all counts. Had there been principles and laws in this country, a few organisations at the federal level, would not have been run without laws and their employees would not have been kept deprived of their career growth and other advantages available to public sector employees.

Admittedly, a country, a society where there are no principles and now laws, there intellectual and social capital, democratic capital, cultural capital, environmental capital, technical capital financial capital, among others, suffer the most as they suffer in this country nowadays but who cares.
