Nigeria at 57. What are thoughts on the situation of the country. I know we all have a lot to say and we should discuss them on here. Just as the country marks its 57th birthday, I have been following social media and the media world passionately to see the views of people about the situation of the country.
Nigeria at 57, what our elder statesmen have to say
The Archbishop of Lagos Ecclesiastical Province of the Anglican Communion, Dr Olusina Fape stated that Nigeria is sick and confused due to the fact that the leaders and we the people are suffering from massive doses of selfishness and corruption.
Do you agree with the above?
Spokesman for the Northern Elders Forum, Ango Abdullahi also said that the country as it clocks 57 is a failure when he compared the country with other countries that gained liberation and independence around the same time with Nigeria.
Do you also agree with this?
While I cannot take away the validity of the statements made above, I am aware that we still have a long way to go as a country and as a people. All we need to do is to keep praying for the good of our Nation Nigeria.
If we keep condemning the country without charging ourselves to be a part of the forward thinking people who wish the country well, how can the country move forward?
All we need to do right now is to keep playing our paths and continue to pray for the country. In as much as you and I are still here, it means we eat and drink from our labour in the country, therefore we still remain a part. We have a long way to go and we as Nigerians have individuals and collective parts to play to move the country forward.
What’s your take on the situation of the country though. I’d love to hear from you. Let’s discuss in the comment section below. Happy Independence Nigeria!
