Commemoration Of Independence Day.

Commemoration of Independence Day: Giving insight on how to achieve the Nigeria of our dreams...

A Country with Silver and Gold. It is said that "an elder will not sit idly and watch the goat die in the tether." This is the present situation in the country; we can no longer fold our arms and act as if nothing happens. Many things are wrong in this country. We will be overwhelmed if we do not find solutions to them as soon as possible. We are a few months away from the 2023 general election; we need to start strategizing and find how we will be at the pace for global advancement. Whoever emerges as winner post-election should know that there is an enormous task ahead. The critical sectors should be properly funded.

One thing we are lacking in this country is a sense of direction. To start progressing and doing things differently, we must define our direction. Leaders of developed nations are aware of this insight, and that is why progress does not elude them. Education should be prioritized because it cuts across all sectors. We have been bedeviled by insecurity, ranging from banditry and kidnapping. What actually is leading people into these vices? Although the fact that educated people are also into these vices can not be ignored, we need to start looking into why such people are also into terrorism. Education should not be at the mercy of funding, but quite enormous funding must be provided for the smooth running of the sector.

Unemployment and poverty go hand in hand. A person that is not employed is expected to live in abject poverty. The government should make an effort to lift people out of poverty. Dolling out thousand of Naira does not lift people out of poverty. But investing massively into industrialization will make a huge difference because many people will be employed. The reason people are living in poverty is that there is no constant flow of money. To address this, people need to get employed. As the salary or wages, they earn will be constant. If one should give an account of the happenings in the country, one will continue to go on and on.

The country is blessed with abundant resources, and it is only a few countries that can compete with us in this aspect. Many of the resources are untapped; the few tapped ones are mismanaged. We need to set our priorities straight. Nation-building is not possible without commitment and discipline.

It is said today is independence day. Is it worth celebrating.? It is the 62nd year of independence. Happy Independence Day!
