This is the Nigeria of my dreams?

20 October 2014, 10:38

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 ?
