It should not come as a surprise to anyone that Nigerians belong to different political parties and for varying reasons.
What however can not be removed from us is that we actually anticipate better and accountable leadership at all levels. We crave for better life for all and equal opportunities. We desperately look forward to a Nigeria where merit and not privilege or connections is the norm in considerations for engagement in services.
We are better with a Nigeria where vibrant and dynamic active and mentored young generations and not recycled minds and exhausted heads bear the responsibilities of stewardship. A Nigeria where the number of corrupt leaders, common thieves and crooks control political institutions is not the nation of our dream.
I sometimes wonder if we are sincere with ourselves and if we have as individuals come to terms with the fact that our actions or inaction defines our situations and circumstances around us.
Nigeria today is the creation of our collective actions at every point of our interaction with others. It is shameful that Nigerian youths are content with the shameful role of rascals, errand boys, fun seekers and crawlers when our generation in other nations are driving the digital divide and economic revolution of their peoples.
Arise oh compatriots
Nigeria's call obey
To serve our Fatherland
With love and strength and faith.
The labors of our heroes past
Shall never be in vain.
The Zik, Awolowo, Tafawa Balewa, Aminu Kano, Ojukwu and many others made their marks when their heads and morals had social worth and patriotic zeal.
Our conscience-less leaders have passed a judgement on our nation and their mission is not to serve but to exploit and control our resources to endure our collective economic bondage and aspirations' defeat.
Let's arise and save Nigeria and be true Statesmen in our old age.
