Nigeria is a country made up of 36 states. President
Goodluck Ebele Jonathan is the leader. It is a country endowed with milk and
honey by nature but greed and selfishness have eroded God's free gift. Our
forefathers had a dream for an independent Nigeria. They fought colonisation
with so much zeal. Many of them were prepared to pay the supreme price.
Eventually, their dreams gave birth to the Federal Republic of Nigeria. The
world is ruled by dreamers and I am one of them. First and foremost, I dream of
a new Nigeria where security of lives and property is guaranteed. A Nigeria
where basic amenities like potable water, electricity and good roads will be in
existence, a Nigeria where there will be improved level of education up to
world class standard.

Furthermore, I dream of a Nigeria where the term ‘Leaders
of tomorrow,’ actually refers to the youths and not the old men and women in
power. A Nigeria where the future of the unborn babies is secured and
guaranteed. A Nigeria where public offices are seen as a privilege and
not a do-or-die affair. Again, I dream of a Nigeria where public officers are
responsible for their wrong acts; a Nigeria where job opportunities abound, a
Nigeria where human rights are respected, a Nigeria where fraud becomes
history. This dream is not a flying horse, I am one of the Nigerians who
believe that there is a very big hope for the country. This is the Nigeria of
my dreams ?
