Hi people, how’s everything? As bloggers that know me a bit must have noticed, I don’t like to trend-blog and I don’t like to complain. I am not one person that will complain about marriage, the situation of things in Nigeria, etc. it doesn’t mean I am not faced with the realities of the many problems we have, but I believe no one has a right to complain if we don’t have suggestions for solutions. I know many bloggers have suggestions about solutions, like I have read on different blogs, but I still would not complain. I have chosen to face the other direction and see differently, that is my own personal choice and I think I have a right to make it.
Even if my government has chosen not to do the right thing…. Nigeria has a great future
Even if the Boko Haram issue is not being resolved fast… Nigeria has a great future
Even if it seems corruption has spread like a cancer through every nook and cranny of the nation… Nigeria has a great future
Even if the power issue doesn’t seem to have headway yet… Nigeria has a great future
Even if *insert however Nigeria is frustrating you*… Nigeria has a great future
Yeah, I said it. If you don’t like my optimism in the face of harsh realities, if you think I am just going on the ‘wishful thinking’ path, well that is the way you choose to see it. As for me, I choose to look the other direction.
The truth is that we are where we are because we have options. A politician has headache, they fly him out of the country. As for most politicians’ kids and rich people’s kids, they all school abroad. The main thing is that people are choosing the other options that will not let the country develop. Choosing these other options are not bad, but take all the options away and you will be amazed at how fast the country will develop. When we fail to develop our country for selfish reasons and greed, because we have looted all the country’s money and can afford to take care of our family of six, then there is fire on the mountain.
In the mean time, don’t say Nigeria is finished, don’t give up on us because we are just starting. As for me, I am not going anywhere because I have nowhere to go, so I have no choice but to root for the only country and only home I have, before some bad leaders pull the rug under my feet.
Till the time we have no option, when the time we have nowhere else to run, till we have nowhere else to go… the future is here
As for those who agree with me, I beg you to CARRY THE SONG… CARRY THE SOUND!
