'Tobi, Why is Nigeria still like this?' You'll ask. It's because our leaders, you and I don't live by these values. We only the lyrics as a mere recitation, instead of an oath to govern activities. Why would you even expect our leaders to live by these values, when majority can't even recite the pledge. Yes, it's that bad! It's everywhere. Anyway, i've decided to uphold my nation's values above my personal and selfish interests. So, loyalty to my country always, but to the government, only when they deserves it. Because my country is greater than any form of government. Friend! Would you join me in this? Enjoy your day. #TobiSpeaks #Believe
