Memories back then.

I remember those days when life was simple.

Humans were reasonably ambitious.

We used to walk down the streets at nights without looking over our shoulders.

We used to think that thieves were the worst things in life we had to face.

One naira was worth a whole lot.

We never cared how much the exchange rate was.

People were contented having just enough to get by.

Nigerians used to love each other genuinely.

There was respect and cheer for charismatic leaders; Shonekan was praised to the high heavens, at least, where I was in Kaduna at the time.

I was only just a boy at the time, but I was wise enough to know that things are different now.

No thanks to our leaders, we have grown retrogressively.

Academic standards have fallen.

Moral decadence everywhere.

Materialism is the order of the day.

Hatred has us enslaved.

Greed has us betraying our own.

Inordinate ambitions have become commonplace among youths who cannot even build a pot from clay.

A lot has changed, but you can be the difference you want to see. Do not let the quest for the transient rob you of your pride and love for humanity.

May we get it right someday!
