THE IDES OF POLITICAL FRATERNITIES



The grasshopper which is killed by a moving train must be extremely deaf and under the spell of destructive forces...




I salute all Nigerians and patriots.

We are approaching another political bridge and you are my witnesses that like the contraction of a woman going into labor, a lot of activities have began.

What is at stake is the resources allocated for the development of our nation. And we are aware that very strange and doubtful fraternities are erecting their canopies and digging socio-political graves to consume our economic destinies.



WE MUST
Ask our selves and others questions
A. What is democracy?

B. Am I of the elligible age to vote in the elections of 2019 by December 2018 and do I have a voter's card? Do you or can you get a voter's card by this date?

C. What are the true qualities of credible and accountable public resources managers?

D. What evidence apart from sponsored media have we as proof of democratic benefits, personal characters of aspirants, antecedents or track records, source of wealth and moral credentials of those seeking public mandate or political powers?

E. Where are the men and women we can trust with our common wealth and public resources that will serve us instead of turning us to their servants or slaves?

F. What can I do to ensure the future development of Nigeria without personal considerations and what can I sacrifice for our children and generations whose future are being squandered by the misplacement of vision and services?

G. Why must we return leadership mandates and duties of our common wealth management to those who are involved in politics as avenue for unpatriotic and self serving objectives.  90% of Nigeria's economic resources are under the brutal grips and control of few former public servants, proxies and their direct family members . They became excessively rich from their appointments while 97% of our country is undeveloped and over 45 million of our graduates population remain unemployeable and prone to lawlessness.

H. Why are very minority of our own brothers and sisters in politics serving family and friends at the expense of our votes and collective dreams of economic emancipation.

OUT MUTUAL CHALLENGE

We have been infected with the chronic individual and selfserving disorder and also inflicted upon our society the rare infirmity of ethnic phobia, distrust and manipulative nationalism.

Our leadership credentials are so very often laced with concealed contempt for the socio-economically disadvantaged and exploitation of our public service institutions to accomplish very personal objectives.

Our national public service administrative expenditure records reveals the most costly, but sadly, with the least productivity.

 Our public servants are deprived, disenchanted and degraded as well as poorly remunerated for their services and sincerely staffed with incompetent generations of beneficiaries from privileged connections and family patronage.

Consequently, very inefficient management system, lack of vision, unprofessionalism, indiscipline and ethnic inspired administrative breaches in our goverment institutions constitutes national liabilities . These have reduced Nigeria to the most stigmatised nation among the global community and modgaged the aspiration of our national economic actualization.

Despite our natural endowments which should have given us the place of pride globally, we are despised and treated with contempt by societies which depend on our resources for their economic sustenance.

We have far better human capital assets and material resources yet we keep recycling expired, unpatriotic, blind and incapable political class who do not believe in the future nor in the human potential or capabilities of endowed Nigerians. The loudest anthem in Nigeria today is about ethnicity, religion and corruption instead of unity, peace, prosperity and development

The Nigerian voters should set the precedence and dictate the pace by careful study of the the unfolding political calculations, articulate our national objectives and use our votes to decisively hack down our detractors and political predators.

We should by examples exhibit prudent, accountable and responsible stewardship. Our political leaders are yet to truly demonstrate their sincerity to us. With our globally recognized commodities, enterprising skills, resilient and resourceful youths and the middle class, the Nigerian dream of a strong economic capabilities are realisable. We can transform from a global dumping ground to near celestial economic and socio-political brands.

ARISE O COMPATRIOTS
GET YOUR VOTER'S CARD
MOBILIZE NIGERIANS AND LET US MAKE NIGERIA TRULY GREAT

DO NOT SELL YOUR VOTES
DO NOT COMPENSATE WITH YOUR VOTES
MANDATE GOOD, GODLY, EXPERIENCED PATROITIC NIGERIANS FOR ECONOMIC AND POLITICAL LEADERSHIP

Therefore beware what you are hearing and who you are listening to.

Change cannot just happen...
Change must be demanded and marched with political affirmation and actions.
Your vote is your power
Your vote is your children's future
Your vote is the only legitimate instrument
