Embracing Change

Growing up as a child, my mum would regale me with stories of the late 70s especially 1979, stories and antics of political parties in the Second Republic, Parties like NPN, NPP and UPN, how they jostled, campaigned and won their turfs. I was always fascinated and would often wonder what It would have been like witness all that.

Fast forward to 2015, today I am excited and privileged to have witnessed a semblance of all that and more in the just concluded Presidential Elections, it wasn’t easy, we jostled in place behind our Principals, we campaigned and quarreled with friends, family and acquaintances just to prove and give meaning to where we stood. 
It’s been exhilarating and nightmarish with its attendant highs and lows and at the end of the day we have a winner from a battle well fought, I believe every one of us has learnt something, most importantly the power of our collective effort and I pray we utilitize this singular strength to its full potential.

A precedent has been set, we now have faith in our collective strength in the knowledge that we can bring a government to its knees but at the same time, I believe we also have a collective responsibility to help heal wounds and calm frayed nerves.

 Change can be difficult, but Oftentimes, it is for the best. Just as the centre is working out what they consider best for us, we also owe it to ourselves to make necessary personal adjustments, it starts from within.

It’s been a journey to remember, one none of us would forget in a hurry. Like my mum, I too have armed myself with anecdotes and I look forward to sharing them with my children in the nearest future.

Here’s ushering in The People’s General, President-Elect, Muhammadu Buhari, wishing you a successful era.
President-Elect, Muhammadu Buhari

And men won't dope before giving speeches. And women won't screw men for contracts. And no one would have die for not paying checkpoint egunje. And subsidy would be gone for good. And...

  4. Let the Messiah lead us out of the "Wildernes" They claim GEJ put us in as if suffering for the poor and lazy began during his tenure. Let the broom sweep across the country and sweep out every corrupt official in the coming government spiritually from top to down and let Nigeria become Africa's paradise...
