Happy independence fellow Nigerians. It is with great daylight and immense pleasure that I’m being opportune to present this before you all.
Please reason with me and sharp up your Brain. For we all must be ready before its rain. Don’t tell me the ugly stories of my dear nation, carefully read this piece as I’m going to raise some serious motions.
The Giant of Africa we are been accorded is not just a pet name, the effort of our past heroes brought us to the top of the game. They fought with strength and resources to get us the fame, and not swindling on our rights to bring us more shame.
It’s interesting we are celebrating our freedom, but I must confess, Lots of manipulation” where is our wisdom? The Commoners are afraid of the future, this is because the future is not really secured. The poor are left to their fate on the street, while bundles of Naira and Dollars are hidden under the bricks. Orphans and Widows Everywhere, Crying and Wallowing with no better wears. Enough! Let’s stop pretending as if we are not really aware.
Huge budget with no productive target, Oh my People! Private jet is not a national asset. We’ve been waiting for many years may be all these will come to an end, but more and more the norm continue to bend. I call on every positive minded youths, to buckle our shoes & tire hard our boots. To ensure we contribute to our nation’s growth, either individually or in group. We must wake-up from our dream. The potential of Nigerians are like ocean, yet, we’re running after a stream.
I choose not to hate my country for what I’ve been told. By privilege, God made me a Nigerian and I’m proud and bold. Only what has ceased existence cannot be effected, Nigeria is alive and all errors can be corrected.
Painfully, the East, West and South are agitating to cut from the North, but that is not really the best if we must reach to the top. United we stand, divided we fall. I enjoin all the regions to come together and make Nigeria a better place.
A minute silence for our late military men and also for every citizen of Nigeria who lost their live over the years. May God grant them eternal rest(Amen).
The best Nigeria we are wishing can be actualise. The Nation is far blessed and naturally rich beneath and so we can be the best. Oh God! I pray for positive changes over my dear nation, for justice is afraid of the level of injustice. Painting a litmus paper soaked in acid to be white when we actually know the colour. I wish we can all glance through the reality behind death and humans so we can calm down and build our towns. Only then, We’ll Witness Naira Increase over Pounds.
Bunch of talents are wasting on the street, we care not for the sweat but freaking at the sweet. We’ve been confronted with so many distractions and therefore we dangled on the bridge of wrongs and rights, but its high time we come together and do what is right. Forsooth, we all must act fast with carefulness so that darkness won’t outshine our Bright.
Enough of the Procrastination, for the progress of Nigeria is not an abomination. I charge the elites to come together as one with uncommon progressive minds so we can have a better nation. Some of our resources are left in bush and outgrown with grasses, Dear Leaders! Revive them and win more praises. Not all we must Wonder, let’s take a step with seriousness before seeking for Gods graces.
Crude oil isn’t all we have, Nature won’t forgive us if we don’t use the rest to better our live. And for the citizens without power, we must not be in public office to put things in order, I’m just appealing and not giving an order. Please, the growth of our country requires a collective efforts. Therefore, lesser complain with personal contribution is what we seek henceforth.
The uniqueness of my country is second to none. Different tribes with different languages and culture. Despite the aforementioned differences, Nigerians still maintain peaceful and harmonious coexistence towards another.
However, I write this to spur your heart so we can live by loving each other for the success of Aaron never outshine that of Moses. Moses with his heart of love, recommended Aaron to be appointed as his comrade. This is the highest a man can ever wish his fellow.The both were confirmed as the messengers of the creator and with their unity in struggle, the Israelites were liberated. God has shown us more scenarios that unity is a core for positive changes. The best Nigeria is what I’m advocating for.
Writers Sermon: Our nation will be greater than we are if we can control the level at which we submissively advocate and mobilize for any political party instead of humanity. This is because political parties were formed by men while humanity is of the lord. Irrespective of the political party, the best Nigeria should be our concern.
