Wake up compatriots, Nigeria’s call obey! In a country of intellectuals, advanced minds a generation of geniuses who have dominated on the world stage; yet we cannot produce a honest leader who can steer the direction of the nation towards a revival.
GOD, give us men!
A time like this demands
Strong minds, great hearts, true faith and ready hands;
Men whom the lust of office does not kill;
Men whom the spoils of office can not buy;
Men who possess opinions and a will;
Men who have honor; men who will not lie;
Men who can stand before a demagogue
And damn his treacherous flatteries without winking!
Tall men, sun-crowned, who live above the fog
In public duty, and in private thinking;
-God, Give Us Men! – Poem by Josiah Gilbert Holland
We are ruled by thugs, greed and endless lies. As a country, we are a laughing stock and the dictionary definition of ‘insane’. Why do we do the same things over and over and hope to get different results? In my point of view, the road to revival is a complete overhaul.
Upcoming Elections in 2019
Nigeria’s call obey! The next election is around the corner and I think it is time to wipe the slate clean. In 1960, we got independence from the English masters but became enslaved to ourselves. 2019, we need a new independence from the crooks who have ruled us for close to 60 years. Let us build a new nation by not voting any old politician and redefine our ethos. If you have been a politician, they you have had your chance and there by confirmed rotten and incapable. You do not know what you are doing, and the state of the nation is our evidence.
If you want to be a politician, you need to show us the following to qualify:
- How have you served us when we didn’t ask anything from you? Have you been involved in a charity to help other Nigerians in anyway?
- Have you been in politics prior to now? If yes, you’re disqualified
- Do you promise to be committed to the duties of the office for which you would like to be considered for? What this means: you cannot be in business while in office hence could not possible be richer than you are now for all the duration of your term in office. You will open yourself up to audit annually till your tenure ends.
Let us stop glorifying criminals and mediocrity.
We shoud stop glorifying criminals and mediocrity and also stop selling our children’s future for peanuts to greedy politicians. Remember anyone who pays you for your vote does not care about you. My guess is if you can read this, then you already know this. Nigerian’s call obey, and it is now your responsibility to tell your neighbour who would not be reading this, so they know.
