There is need for a revolutionary zeal in anyone or group of people that will change the present status quo ante Nigerians find themselves in.
Firstly, majority of Nigerians at this present day are oblivious of how we got enmeshed in the present political, economic, and educational imbroglio they find themselves – which was a long term strategic state policy by a group of players to stultify the mindset of the majority. To this end, there is need for serious deliberately orchestrated re-orientation of Nigerians to expose the source of the challenge bedeviling us. Get set to sacrifice anything we have, not excluding life, as those who perpetrate and are perpetuating this state of things are State Actors, and they are ready to fight dirty.
Secondly, a new political movement of intellectually young successful citizens, fed up with the present fiasco that Nigeria has become must rise to lead this change. If extreme bloodshed should be averted, it must take up to four to eight years or more of debriefing the people’s mindset of the present negative thoughts they inhabit.
Majority of those to lead the New Change, must have businesses that are not linked to government’s patronage, to avert sabotage; and must be outstandingly ethical to ensure government and oppositions’ blackmail will not rip them apart and destroy their image and personality.
A value, virtue and integrity-driven society, woven around elitist and intellectually sound youths from those who ran away and have found safe-havens in developed economies and are hugely successful, but yearned to return home; who must be the basic driving-force of the New Change being envisaged – like Singapore’s Turn-Around Leaders.
With the above set of people must be those who believe the right change can start with them and are resident in Nigeria, but till now are apolitical or love politics that delivers first-class dividends to the people, a missing-link engendered by the present political system and environment.
Discussing the pertinent and necessary change we envision is not a stroll in the park of a subject to continually discuss here, but one to strategically wake up to, with a view to bringing like-minded together to make happen; because the ways and means of solving the present hydra-headed problems in place must be inexhaustively debated and the best opinions harnessed.
This is what some of us are doing.
The future of Nigeria lies in the hands of Nigerian Youths of today’s hi-tech age who must be deliberately educated, trained and developed with State Fund and Unleashed to Set New Standards that will compete favourably with that of China; Japan; Malaysia; Singapore; Hong-Kong; South Korea and other third-world countries now giving the Western Countries a run for their money now.
But, Note, and Note, Very Well, in Whatever Way It Must Come, “HEADS MUST ROLL” For Reconstructions Must Be Done.
