“Nigeria has all it takes to become the greatest nation in Africa and it behooves both Diaspora Nigerians and the few conscientious ones left in the country to begin to merge to chase away these unproductive stooges destroying their country.
Nigeria has once been great to reckon with in virtually all aspect of humanity, financial managerial acumen, men with courage and love for the ordinary people, industrious young people and conscientious leaders other than the image of ridicule and humiliation it continues to be subjected to from home and overseas as a result of weak leadership, abuse of privileges and a lawless generation of men and women in authority who steal funds from their own nation to zero and, lacks conscience and empathy for their own people as they continue to destroy their homeland only to fly away from the country at the slightest opportunity for medical tourism or to borrow money from other serious nations.
Today, history reminds us of such men of high moral standards, courageous and quality leadership that has continue to elude Nigeria since the departure of her Founding fathers – leaving you to wonder, where do these recent crop of Nigerian leaders today emerge from – Do they read history books at all and if they do, why don’t they, at least, exemplify those great attributes that made the founding fathers of the nation classic and outstanding till death.
For the records; It was in the year 1963 and Nigeria’s first and only Prime Minister, Sir Abubakar Tafawa Balewa took his annual leave and was off to his village to spend it. Then a British photojournalist came along but they told him that the PM had gone on vacation.
The photojournalist then asked to which country but he was shocked when they told him the PM went to spend the vacation in his own village. To satisfy his curiosity, he decided to travel to the village. But on getting to the village, there was no sign that a big man was in town.
Everyone went on their normal business and the village was peacefully quiet. Then he met a farmer along the way with his donkey carrying bales of sugarcane, and he asked from the farmer the house of the PM. The photojournalist was again left speechless when the farmer told him that he had just left the PM and that if he gets to the PM’s house, which he described, he would meet him sitting on the bare floor with his kids enjoying the sugarcane that he gave them.
The British photojournalist was dazed when he reached the PM’s home. This is the picture that he took. May the labours of our heroes past never be in vain.
Today, we have vagabonds and thieves in power. Those who disturb an entire city with sirens and their empty noises of vanity. Those who loot the treasury of an entire nation and still insult our common intelligence with their embarrassing incompetence leaving their cities in ruins and filth.
Nigeria has all it takes to become the greatest nation in Africa and it behooves both Diaspora Nigerians and the few conscientious ones left in the country to begin to merge to chase away these unproductive stooges destroying their country. Stop giving them any kind of awards, they do not deserve the awards, hold you public officials accountable to save the nation from complete annihilation of moral virtues and lawless behavriors. All Nigeria need is a visionary, dedicated and inspiring leaders and not those shameless rogues and incorrigibly kleptomaniac bandits who lie, rob, cheat, rig and kill their way to power and reproduce their likes to maintain an evil grip on the nation and its people.
