(People queuing for fuel in Nigeria, regardless of the fact that we are number 8 on the OPEC list o!!!)

Came across this article that I posted sometimes in July, precisely the 10th of July, last year... I think that it could not be more relevant at this time, when we seem to be in urgent need of focused leaders... Join me as I go down through memory lane...

"I believe in a Nigeria with a government of the people, by the people, and for the people; whose 
just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; and a nation established upon the principles of freedom, equality, justice and humanity.

We will never bring disgrace on this our Nation by an act of dishonesty or cowardice.
We will fight for the ideals and Sacred Things of the Nation both alone and with many.
We will revere and obey the Nation’s laws, and will do our best to incite a like reverence and respect in those above us who are prone to annul them or set them at naught.
We will strive increasingly to quicken the public’s sense of civic duty.
Thus in all these ways, we will transmit this Nation, not only not less, but greater and more beautiful than it was transmitted to us."
