Why the silence?

18 December 2015, 17:02 Jibunor George Chuks

Nigeria our motherland and a country richly blessed with milk and honey. A land many foreigners find comforting, fertile and as a land of true hospitality. Yes I believe in change and I do have the opinion that many that read this believe in change as well. I may be too quick or too late to talk about all the issues pressing deeply hard on our beloved land due to current situation. 

I hardly could believe and imagine how educated elites could always compare people of different pedigree in any manner. How Mr A tackles issues could be different in the way Mr B tackles it, but the ultimate outcome everyone in the right sense expects is that at the end let there be positive results. Past and present administration are absolutely different, so one could find it creepy, uneducated and unprofessional to always make reference to the past whenever the current administration makes mistake that is clear to be condemn and yet all we could hear is that; when the past administration were there it was worst than this! Then, on a second thought, why on earth did people put so much trust in this set of new administration at the first place?

So much silence in the country; one will begin to wonder where are the opposition parties, why are they not talking; especially the pdp's, is there any torn in their throat that made them to have remained silent for quite some time now from throwing criticism on Apc? In as much there are so much propaganda in all this, but this is check and balance display which keeps the ruling party in place, after all the country belongs to everyone not minding the party you belong, only that the criticism should have limits. 

Or is it of the opinion that if someone have skeleton in his closet, that he should not step out to demand for any hidden skeleton in the neighbours closet? The silent in the country cannot solve the situation but constructive criticism can help make these people remember that, yes, people are watching. 

I believe in change because change is a constant thing in human life.

God bless.
