AT TIMES LIKE THIS
In the process of Nation building, times come bye and passes bye. Most times it comes with several unpredictable tendencies, sometimes good, bitter and sometimes very sweet.
The time we are in now is tough, we understand more than ever before, Nigerians across board must pull resources, intelligence and relationship together to get through it, this effort to my mind goes beyond one party effort, religious inclination and tribal or regional consideration or inclination.
In this phase of our nation building, efforts like that of Dr. Ifeanyi Uba should be giving a serious thought and consideration in crashing the dollar, this I believe will relief the pressure on the Naira, if the outcome comes out positive, food prices will come down and cost of living will drop drastically.
So also is the need for Nigerians to close ranks with each other, consider too in our daily living patronizing our home made products, except where we might be lacking before considering a foreign one.
Same thought process be placed on sports and general entertainment, for instance sports enthusiasts should consider adopting a local professional sports club and promoting same even if it is in their speeches only, sports and entertainment is one area where Nigeria has been made proud on several frontiers, it also provide jobs for our teeming youth. For instance comment like “I LOVE NIGER TORNADOES FC” will endear it to a lot of people.
No leader no matter how wicked will want his people to suffer, infact, in most cases wicked leaders try hard to ensure the masses have a very a comfortable life because that is their own security, but at times things go way beyond their expectation and for this, patience by all and sundry is employed and prayers are engaged, while wide range of consultations are made, feedback mechanisms are developed and palliative measures are dished out, times like this only last short.
Times might be hard, everyone is feeling it especially the less privileged of the society, I feel it too, I call on all to offer their ideas where necessary and I call on all those in authority to heed wise counsels irrespective of where or whom it comes from, that is how great Nations and states are build.
I am sure NIGER STATE AND NIGERIA WILL BE GREAT
