There are many Nigerians without personal vision. It seems many average Nigerians are only concern about making money and taking pleasure in sleeping with women and drinking beer. If these are what will make a country great Nigeria would’ve been one of the greatest countries on earth. They don’t want to set up a business and when they do it’s certainly not to satisfy those that patronize them, they don’t compete to be the best in their business. They just want to do enough to make unlimited money.
Many people in Nigeria are selfish and care only for themselves. When you see Nigerians fighting over tribal issues you’ll think they love people of their own tribe it’s not so, but you will find out that it’s only to satisfy themselves. The kind of sufferings they mete out on people of their own tribe many times are unimaginable. For Nigeria to be better we must be people who are loving not retualists, bandits, armed robbers or fraudsters etc.
Many people are without a great deal of ambition. Very few Nigerians care to be the best in whatever they do. A Nigerian president once remarked that they’re lazy. This I think is because they don’t care to be the best. They may gather to talk and talk about what is happening in other countries but it never occur to them to make it happen in their own land. The easiest way to be counted a success in Nigeria is to have money and many make money by being a thief. It is lazy to have to steal to get rich. And it stupid to expect anything good from a country of robbers.
They’re a people who failed in their soul searching because they love to cast aspersions and blame others or government for their predicaments. Hardly can you find Nigerians who are ready to pick up the gauntlet from the ground and accept his or her portion of the blame, but every poor attitude is blamed on government. Government also point accusing fingers in other directions and the Universities, hospitals, schools, markets police, security, government, courts, roads etc continued to get worse with no hope in sight.
We are a people who would never appreciate what good other people are doing. We want to bring them down. We have people striving to do good in their various fields only it’s just the right time to unite and bring such people down. How many people living in Nigeria today can be the best in what he or she’s doing or one of the best around the world? Hardly. But if Nigeria is going to be a great country we must not just be happy when we see someone doing great but we must applaud greatness in others. And go out of our ways to be of assistance to such. Government is supposed to be the people’s helper but when we have Nigerians in government they use government power to bring down every Nigerian that’s trying to go up while they don’t have the interest to go up themselves.
We should seek for political office seekers who have a desire to help people to succeed in life.
