"The Nigeria of my dream".
Nelson Mandela famously said; "Africa will never get the respect it deserves,not until Nigeria earn that respect".
Nigeria a country in West Africa is popularly regarded as the giant of the African continent.
Nigeria as the giant of the African continent is not only due to her large population but her strong and large military strength, Availability of numerous natural resources just to mention but a few.
Most African countries over the years had always seek both military and economic assistance from Nigeria.
I just can't forget the role Nigeria played in South Africa during her apathied period and even Liberia during her civil war just to mention both a few.
Back home, Nigerians are lavishing in poverty, insecurity has become the talk of the town, Corruption, nepotism and tribalism has become a norm in the country, unemployment had become the order of the day, killing is now usual, religious violence is on the increase . with all these aforementioned National issues, it's obvious Nigerians had not be getting the best from her elected representatives. Thus, calls for disintegration has become inevitable.
Various groups has decided to embark in pursuit of self determination. From the South East to the South South and South west and even North Central due to insecurity and marginalisation of their Geo political zones and possibly due to ethnic cleansing, mass murder and religious reduction.
The principle of federal character had been totally abandoned. The government had failed on her primary responsibility, so calls for secession had become rampant.
But the question is; is secession the answer to Nigeria problem?
A lot of Nigerians especially the secessionists had come to conclusion that the only solution is for the country to disintegrate but I strongly disagree with this view.
Secession wouldn't come as easy as they think , moreover, Nigeria can not afford to fight another civil war. Although, I wasn't born as at the time of the civil war between 1967-1970 but have been able to read and possibly made a lot of research on the said war and I have come to conclusions that war is evil, war is brutal, war is human rights denials,war is killings of the innocents, war is not a fan of humanity. So I object it.
I am an advocate of "one restructured Nigeria". I believe we are better off together. If we separate, The respect will be gone the title of being the gaint of Africa will also be gone. Am quite sure, the founding fathers wount be pleased if we probably separate.
A Nigeria of my dream, is a Country where the rights of the citizens would be respected, Nigerians would be gainfully employed,where there would be adequate security of lives and properties, where the public servants would be fully accountable to the people, where corruption, Nepotism, Tribalism, killings and kidnapping would be a thing of the past, A Nigeria where the principle of federal character would be fully implemented, A country that will adhere to the provisions of the Constitution and the rule of law.
How do we achieve the aforementioned points as a country? Achieving these is possible if the country is properly "Restructured".
Let's imagine a Nigeria, where every state is allowed to to manage and mine her resources and then pay some amount to the federal government on monthly basis.
A Nigeria where Education, Heath, Fire service are under the full control of the state.
Further more, a Nigeria where police is under the control of the state.
In addition, a country where the Judiciary is highly decentralized, civil service fully decentralized.
If all this can be done, it will result to healthy competition among states, better living standard of the citizens , adequate security of lives and properties. Infact, state would develop at pace.
The sincere truth is that the federal government is over burden with powers and functions by the Constitution, there is need to relieve her of some of her powers.
If this is done, the office of the president would become less attractive to politicans since they can not longer weight much powers like before.
In conclusion of this write up, A Nigeria of dream is a Nigeria, where a child of a nobody can become somebody without knowing anybody. Thank you for reading.
