Happy Independence Day

by - Thursday, October 01, 2015

Good morning Nigeria. Today is the beginning of a new month. Today, Nigeria celebrates 55 years of independence. I am excited. I know you are, even though I cannot be accurate about why you are. Ahahahahahahahahahaaa....lol. Yes na, it's a holiday in the middle of the week and you don't have to go to school or work or anything. Mheeeeeen, these holidays overlap well well no be small thing o.

A lot of us have cause to complain and whine about the situation of the country. Many of us are not satisfied with the state Nigeria is in. It's understandable; I feel the same way too. #sighs. But what do we do? Let's keep up the hopes. Our leaders themselves need hopeful Nigerians. Don't forget that even we the followers have roles to play in the betterment of this nation. Are you playing your role? Are you doing your part?

Living in Nigeria will be easier if we can cooperate with the leaders. Just last week, someone saw me squeeze in sachet water nylon into my bag after I gulped in the contents. He gave me a confused look and I had no choice than to ask him to spill what was on his mind. I realized that he saw no reason why I did not have the courage to throw in on the floor. The place was littered and so he thought that making it a sachet nylon cleaner was pointless.

There are little ways of being good followers. Making your country clean is one of the little ways you can move this nation forward. Isn't it just simple obedience? Many of these food wrappers always inscribe 'keep Nigeria clean' on them. 'Don't dump it on the floor' etc. It's just simple obedience. Imagine a Nigeria where every civilian dumped wastes properly and not in the rivers and gutters; a Nigeria where its citizens feel uncomfortable littering the floor. It isn't going to solve all of our problems but it's a huge step, believe me. It is a sign that perspectives and orientations are changing.

We can whine all we want about our corrupt leaders but I tell you yet that we have our own parts to play as citizens. Let's play them well and watch Nigeria become better than it is now. Have a fabulous holiday celebration.

God bless you. God bless Nigeria.
