It’s a privilege to share my thoughts in this honourable blog to individuals that have braced up to join this young great revolutionist in this seemingly unending subject matter, ‘NIGERIA’.
I was recently involved in a really informative debate. The debate was on the subject: agriculture and oil. I debated for agriculture and from that debate the subject matter, freedom from self was born.
Before independence, Nigeria desired independence....after independence we celebrated independence and now we do not know what exactly we are seeking for but all we know is that we are seeking something. I’m sure that I’m speaking with inquisitive minds right now and as such I choose to believe that you must have asked yourself why Nigeria desired to get her independence. A very common answer is that they desired freedom. After independence while trying to celebrate this new achievement, the same need before 1960 was not met, this is freedom!
You might actually be wondering right now what this analyst is talking about........I request that you still borrow me some seconds.
The basic truth and need that Nigerians have been seeking for before and after independence is freedom from self. This is as a result of having little or no iota of belief in oneself not to think about the entire nation. It is a struggle between self. Nigeria is a coming together of persons. Until these persons break free from this self freedom mentality...then it remains the unsolvable need.
I end with a proposition to Nigerians that believe there is no future for Nigeria.... try thinking about yourself as though you alone make up Nigeria. What would you do to make yourself satisfied and happy....think the same thing for 5...10...20...persons.....you’d see that Nigeria still has a future and then you would agree with me that its a battle of self freedom.
To the others who are on the same page with me guess what.......it would soon be count down to the Nigeria of our dreams...............
My last words on this, ‘ignore that you have a leader....lead yourself as you are the government....would you allow your territory fail?’
