Letter from the prison to Nigeria

10 June 2015, 14:27 Sivan A.J. Emeka Onoh

My good people of Nigeria, it gives me joy to write to you from the four-wall of the prison custody abuja, on the issues that concern the peace, justice and progress of our Nation "Nigeria" I am happy that the election has come and gone, and the handing over has taking place for that great change which starts today!

But what beats my imagination is how some son's and daughter's of this great Nation are still been manipulated to be used against the future of this great land of ours, by some selfish and unproductive politicians, this so called politicians are the gready money mongers who never have the nation and it's people at heart, but only focused on our mineral and natural resocies, embezuling our national treasuries, for just themself, their children, grand children and generation yet unborn, without minding the poor and less privilage in our society.

As an inmate who has been in prison for over five years awaiting trial, even before now, I see inpunity and injustice all over our street, I see intimidation, discrimination and centiment pointing at the faces and homes of the poor and lesser privilage in our nation "Nigeria".

My good people of Nigeria, as we all know, our nation is blessed with all kinds of natural and mineral resources, which if utilised very well, will be used to meet up with 70% needs of the masses. If you agree with me, Nigeria is a country where free education is expected, it is where good jobs opportunities is expected, it is where our fuel, disiel and kero should be sold as same price with sarchet pure water in the stations, it is where every citizen should be paid a specifice amount, wheghter you own a business, work with government or private sector, including the students and those who are yet to secue a job, it is where equal right and justice is expected for a lasting peace and unity for all.

So my dear people of this great country Nigeria, the hour has come again for we to stand out for a new Nigeria that we always hope for, it is in our power to make the change we need as a people, for our own good and for the good of our children and children children. It is time to come together as one, and join hands to lift up the glory of this nation up for the world to see the goodness of the Lord in Nigeria. We can make it if we try, we can reach the finish line, if we take the step, we can repear the mess of our past leaders if we believe.

We are Nigerians, and we have all that it takes to make our dreams come true, to make this nation a better place for all, we are one, becouse God our creator is one, we are Nigeria, and united we will stand. The new Nigeria has come for good, we have no other land than Nigeria, it is our fathers land, it is our mothers land, it is our country, we must join hands together as one to build up the mess of our past leader's and make things work again in our Nation. Its time to start changing the way we think, the way we speak, the way we work, the way we do things and the way we see each other. We must turne away from fighting, stealing, robbery, raping, killing, terrorism and every other criminal activitys and all kinds of evils. We must lean to love, care, stand, suport and give a helping hand to one another, for the joy of this day new Nigeria to be fulfilled through us... Thank You All And God Bless Nigeria
