Americans are great people, and they know where the power belong. ” The power belong to the people”
They allow you to administer it for a period of time, if your perfomance is relative or not, they determine what next to do with you.
When President Bill Clinton was rounding up his two term tenure, America was in good shape. But they still voted out Democtratic and brought in Republican and President George Bush Jr as the President.
‘The Dynamism Of Change’
That’s what I pray to see in Nigeria. Nigerian populace must realise it’s dangerous to stay or rather as it seems over-stay in their comfort zone. That’s, if a particular party boast of rulling for 60 years and the people are not doing anything about it, it means they are docile and not futuristic.
Nigeria has contemporaries. Why do we allow ourselve to be left so far behind? If actually power belong to the people, how are we administering that power that belong to us to protect the future of this country and generations yet unborn? Great leader from time immemorial are futuristic thinker. They think hard and map out strategies to bring to reality the idea and ideal.
Our present situation is not too ideal for a nation so blessed specially by God. Yoruba adage says “you can’t be big like elephant and eat like ant”
Nigerian should look beyond today but into the future. The future challenge is greater, and to fix it must start today. Even if we have to change our law to do that, so be it.
“Stomach infrastructure” against physical infrastructure. Which is ideal?
The new entrants into political lexicon is the former. Where satchets of rise, salt, pepper,oil etc are distributed to electorate to get their vote. They make you poor and give you nothing. What a gready system?
I would prefer a physical infrastructure such as electic train of 300km/hr that can make me to work in Abuja and live Port Harcourt or Lagos. We have the money to do that across Nigeria. Don’t allow these little minds to keep stealing and squardering our money. It won’t take us anywhere.
This Nation has lot of catch up to do with Brazil, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia and others. The global growth is spontaneous and it’s time relative.
This is deep from the heart. If you also feel the same, please feel free to share in any platform you so desire.
