What's my role?

11 December 2013, 13:34 Jibunor George Chuks

Mostly some persons has this habit of criticizing whatever others does, they are never concern whether if the person involve gets it right or not! As long as they are not the one involve in that particular projects or plans, hell no, its never right. They see themselves as mr and mrs “right”.

 Many people don't see the psychological effects of criticizing people without even offering a solution to the problems. Everyone in the country now hates politics but if been giving the opportunity believe me, many could sell Nigeria to foreign countries within just few period of their  leadership. People talk about what others have not done but always find it difficult to talk about what they have achieve or have done. A man in his supermarket was criticizing the country concerning the killings and saying the country is bad. When we entered, a friend was trying to let him know that their are so many countries in the world that Nigeria is far better and with facts.

Thanks to God, the man changed his view and allied with the young guy's facts. Hear what the man said later on! Yes is true i agree with you son, i remembered when we were little, we only eat rice once in a week or more than a week(i.e. Sundays) but now things have changed that everyone can now eat rice even two times in a day. Quiet convincing, if i must say, Nigeria will change.  Many in this country are development killers, they indirectly blocks the development which might come into their communities so as to lighten up the life's of their people. I speak with facts my dear, not imaginary speaking but facts of what that is going on within our environs.

 Here this story, I'll not like to give out the name of this village ok, so as to avoid some things. In that village, i was meant to understand that the Nigerian Navy purchased a massive land in the village, in which they want to use to build their permanent base. This purchase has been for long, but closely last three or four months back they have completed arrangements to start the project in the land. Then, the youths from the same village sprang up and said such thing can not take place in their community. Hmmm, hear their reasons!

The Navy will block their user road(uncompleted road, if i must tell you). 2, The Navy will rape their young girls even their wives too. 3, The Navy's are taking their children's inheritance. Now, how does this sounds to your listening ear my people? Indirectly are these people not development killers? Heaven knows they are. Let me give you what the community will benefit from that project! 1, The Navy will build primary and secondary school (their children will have the chance to enrol in). 2, The Navy promised to give them a wider good road. 3, Their children will have automatic opportunity to enter into Navy. 4, Creation of employment for those that can teach there. 5, Tackle security situations in their village, and so on, but let me stop here. Ok, tell me how all this benefits can be harmful to people living in that environs? Heaven knows, it will not.

 But these youths has blocked the light that is coming into their community with or out of their selfish reasons. A friend told them that, if eventually the project seize to take place, that even their unborn children will never forgive them from reaping them off, this development in their community. You know, most at times, we fail to play our role in the society's developments and yet many keep opening their filthy mouth saying “we are living in poverty, government has not done anything for us” may God deliver those people with their mentality and lies. We have part to play in the development of our communities, states and country. God help us and bless us.
