Nigeria as a nation and we as people! I sincerely hope that this time around, we’ll get it Right. A country blessed with human and material resource.
Human resource is the most critical factor that the system must nurture to productivity. The focus on that factor must be right from elementary stage to self sufficiency in capacity building to meet our needs. It’s then we can say we have come of age.
“Nigeria! Good people……yes! great nation…………?”
‘baba n’mogba, tan ba n’tan e, koo ma tan ara re’- if you are being deceived, never deceive yourself.
As good as we are, we are too docile as a people. We are too full of if you cannot win them, join them. Why would a leader voted for, earn so much money, deliver so little and yet embezzle so much public fund. Still demand respect for doing so. Where is our value?
With kind of money Nigeria had seen, we should be traveling across the length and breadth in fast trains. In cities, trams and light trains instead of keke Napep. Our cities are flooded with tricycles which we don’t even assembles talk less of manufacturing. The embezzlers will tell you that it did not started with them. Even in 16 years of suplus, no single refinery was added to the existing four that is inadequate.
What they could only give us were fuel importers.
I had been saying they must be of little mind. Because all what they think is acquisition of wealth without adding value to the people. If a party tagged itself the biggest in Africa and boastfully said they will rule for 60 years back to back; ‘then we don turn to munmun (dummy).
We said no and voted for change. They have come out arrogantly to say they had a better performance. Where there’s lack of discipline, would there be progress?. They even boasted of taking power back by 2019. A mirage, mere wishful thinking. So it seems, but a big challenge to the people.
What we need is genuine service to our father land.

President Muhammadu Buhari decked like the ‘boys on the block’.
Tell any Nigeria of your online presense, the question comes speedily ‘are you making money? ‘
I can’t recount how many times I have to answer that if it’s money that’s the motivation, ponzi scheme is at the door knocking.
Don’t blame Nigerians, we always think it’s all about money, so people are ready to do anything to get to that money. They don’t understand that knowledge has to be sought to get direction. The value chain had been broken long ago from the time of our ‘maradonic’ self styled military President Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida. The author of “use what you have to get what you want”. This breeded all manner of irregularities and shortcuts in the system, persisting from one government or the other after him till the man he overthrew returned to power through ballot.
The system over time made many to be seeker of what to eat. “what is it in there for me? ” not what is it that I need to contribute?. The attitude enumerated above made us redundant and lazy with almost every one young and old hanging on the government. The people that supposed to be asset to government were liabilities that the government can no longer afford.
We are greatly endowed. We must tap into building our human resources and this is the right time. The new government should continue in the path earmarked. Anybody who want to cry wolf can go ahead to display their stupidity.
In the process of rebuilding the structure of our nation.
To change situation of a nation from worst to better!
It takes a man.
It takes a strong woman behind that man.
It takes committed men around the man.
It takes the people’s commitment behind the man.
It takes patient and time for a positiveio change.
It take the grace of GOD.
It takes hard work and PRAYER
Industrialisation is the foundation to successful economic impact that strenghten democtractic dispensation. It is pertinent in our stride to self actualisation as a nation.
Let us not be deceived or try to deceive ourselves that there is other way out.i The only way out is to follow the path that leads to the promised land, and that is to industrialize.
To be able to feed ourselves, to cloth ourselves, and to put shelter upon our heads.
Around all these mentioned here lies massive industrialisation.
At this point in the life of our nation. We must desist from the usual general attitude of what comes to me but what comes to others first. When we learn to serves others well with sincerity, our personal need will be met.
Today is the inauguration of President Muhammadu Buhari as the new President of Federal Republic of Nigeria. From all indication, it’s an entrance into a new result oriented and glorius era.
The making of the Nation is not in the people waiting for the CHANGE.
But in becoming the agents of the Change.
This is not an era of skeptism or pessimism,
But that of conviction and commitment
To build a great nation

Life of service to humanity is very noble. The scale does not matter. In fact it’s good to start small at it and grow it to a big concern.
Wheather it’s for profit or non profit! It oil the wheel of life and keep it going. It’s anti-productive to do otherwise.
In our political situation, the stakeholer have put in to such of what would come to them at the expence of what goes to others as common good.
We have endured their tendencies and I think it’s high time they acknowledge the fact that whom much is given, much is expected.
