HOUSE NUMBER 13 DEEDOC OLA..........Ladies and Gentlemen,

Posted: Updated:

I seldom differ from the write-ups of well meaning Nigerians on this page but i beg to differ on this progression of military resurgence, picking up harms for revolution. Where did the military juntas get us after 29 years of their rule? No one assumed that the road to a democratic bliss was going to be easy. Nobody proclaimed that it will be perfect. So lets not fool ourselves that moving back to the old guards is the way forward. Unfortunately, the only way forward, is the track that we have now notwithstanding its failures and shortcomings. We "the people" are the ones failing, not any political leader. The staff of power shall reign again next year. The only revolution we need is a political revolution, we have to fight to ensure our voices are heard loudly during the next election. There are three realms to politics- "Power", "Money" and "Will". I believe we might be lagging behind on the first two to the political demagogues, but i believe we can work on the "WILL". The willingness for a better life, the basic amenities of life for more than 90% of Nigerians. If we really put our minds together rather than talk without any actions, we will surprise ourselves. With the numbers of intellectuals amongst Nigerians, I am sure if we can come together constructively, we can get the change we are looking for. The call to break up Nigeria is always a joke. The day we break up, that is the day that Lagosians will think they are better than people from ogun state, even-though we are all Yourbas. If Jaiyeola street becomes autonomous today and has its own currency, some of the people on this page(Street) will be singing a new sung about their newly found status. So lets not kid ourselves, we differ because its human nature. Individually, we will be lost as a people and it will become more challenging but collectively as Nigerians, under the right Umbrella, we will SOAR. Emphatically, our differences as Nigerians is actually why we will excel in Africa and if harnessed properly, great opportunities will abound. Our revolution should be about the next election. Fighting to ensure no one steals our votes and hijack our country again. I know they will try and lives might be lost but that is the revolution that we need. There are so many ideas out there on how to make it happen but we have to come together with a common goal and that gentlemen, is the challenge. Another thought proving write-up Jaiye... Your path is set.. Thanks for keeping us all thinking.
