This is an essential
question that all Nigerians needs to brainstorm. This is not the time for
Nigeria's political analysts, economic analysts and religious leaders to fold
their hands neither only identify the challenges facing Nigeria and fail to
proffer productive solutions to the nation's catastrophe.
According to the
political American leader's political logistics - Nigeria will be divided
immediately after the 2015 presidential election. Does that political analysis
come to reality? Will severe doom and destruction befall Nigeria before the end
of President Muhammadu Buhari's regime? The truthful answer is 'No'.
speaking, what makes a succeeding nation to become an outstanding nation is the
optimistic potential of excellence. No challenge under the supervision of God
is insurmountable. There is a prosperous limelight for Nigerians only if all
masses and leaders in all sphere of governance believe and walk in rightful
proportions that leads to distinctive success.
The truth is, our attitude
towards life challenges determines life attitude towards us. The way Nigerians
visualizes and approaches the economic and socio- political challenges
determines the quickness we overcome our challenges. The economic and political
crisis Nigeria faces today is like historical rhyme of testimonies to other
succeeding nations like Canada and America. Due to their productive experiences
they came across during their economic and political crisis, they acted
uprightly and achieved massive success.
It is very obvious to 'goldsmiths' that
before 'gold' becomes a glamorous source of income to them, they passed through
severe hardship and heat reactions. That is exactly the kind of challenges some
successful nations of today passed through before their offsprings positively
benefitted from the great exploits.
America faced serious economic challenges, racism
and political catastrophe before the Americans finally become productive role
models to neighbouring countries. Substantially, challenges are like
promotional ladders, if we fail to climb the ladder with effective
consciousness, courageous zeal and optimistic mindset to acquire greatness, we
might remain stagnant or become doomed by fear of failure.
There are series of
questions to greatness that Nigerians needs to answer judiciously. Firstly, are
Nigerians truly contented with the high level of poverty and ignorance of
fundamental human rights that sabotage the national cake? Are Nigerians really
ready to become more positive heart minded and also ready to endure limited
severe hardship to obtain a glorious nation we all aspire to have?
Are our political,
religious leaders and economic experts ready to go against unjustifiable
actions that jeopardizes the growth and development of the nation? Are
Nigeria's youths ready to receive and judiciously utilize prosperous leadership
mandate and legacy that the past heroes and heroines gained for the betterment
of the nation?
Candidly speaking, the day Nigerians positively posses the
optimistic zeals to solve theses questions, we will all begin to live a
succeeding life that all Nigerians hope and pray to enjoy. Nigeria's
socio-economic sand political problems will not only become a glorious
testimony but will also become a distinctive role model to other countries.
Nigerians should join hands to support the political, economic and religious
leaders for the betterment and enhancement of peace and harmony within the
God bless Nigeria!
