Let’s Rescue Nigeria In 2023

Published

By Muhammad Umar Shehu

This is a high time that Nigerians need to come back to their senses by looking at the menaces facing this country because nowhere seem to be safe anymore in this country. So I deemed it necessary to call unto my fellow Nigerians to come together as one big family and change the narrative of this great country from the ugly ones to the good.

Dear fellow Nigerians the 2023 general election is fast approaching so am using this great moment to pass this across that this is a time we shun electing political parties and focus so much on electing a candidate with the zeal and passion in changing the bad narratives of this great country to a good ones because if we choose to elect political parties again surely we’ll going to suffer again.

Nigerian politicians are birds of the same feather because Nigeria is filled with politicians with vested interest: they only care about their personal interests and all they do they do it for the betterment of themselves not for the betterment of the masses or populace that bring them to power. In this regard Nigerians should shine their eyes in the next election to come 2023 because if we vote political parties not candidates definitely we’ll going to suffer for another good four years.

I used to say with cocksure certainty that, We live in an age where the integrity of our leaders are measured by the amount of ” stolen money” they give to the youth. They buy our conscience with meagre amount of money and turn us to slaves for years. And we failed to understand that.

Leadership is not about changing the mind-set of a group, but in the cultivation of an environment that brings out the best and inspires the individuals in that group. But reverse is the case when it comes to Nigerian politicians because they always create an environment that makes them feel at their best.

Nigerians should work together round-the-clock and change the happenings of insecureness that is bedevilling this country by using our voter’s card because our PVCs remain our last hope to change the narratives of this great country to a better one. Since no action is being put into place to tackle the phenomenon facing this great country.

This write up is cooked out of zeal and passion in regaining the lost glory of our dear country Nigeria because alots has happened in this country and still happening but no any measure to tackle the phenomenon apart from the condolences messages the government spews out whenever an incident happened in the country.

Leaders are responsible for creating an environment in which people feel they can be their best. But Nigerian politicians failed woefully to understand that and this brings setback to our society and country in general because people always follow lead from their leaders and we also lack people with patriotism, nationalist and zeal with passion in uplifting this country to a greater level that we can be proud of the society we live in.

Mark Twain remain us that “ in the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be patriot.” Thus Let’s join hand together and change the narratives of this great country by using our PVCs to choose wisely this time around because if otherwise the situation at hand will be worse than it was before.

Therefore, Nigerian politicians should understand that “when anger rises, think of the consequences.” And be assured to know that after all the struggle we’re all going to die and meet our creator for judgement. So ne steadfast and honest in everything you do in this life.

How Politically Wise Is Governor Fintiri ?

By Mubarak Shuaybu Shelleng

There was hate outburst from the opposition party in the state about Governor Fintiri’s decision to denying them access to Ribadu Square for their campaign flag off. The governor expectedly stopped the ongoing renovation and grant them access to the place for peace to reign.Though, the opposition felt dishonored and considered another venue for the occasion.

As a result, all of the forms of insults, crooked lies, and stories were circulated against the governor but to our greatest surprise, the governor despite his long-time political experience didn’t utter a word and singlehandedly dealt with the political noisemakers. Indeed, Governor Fintiri is good at using silence and treat issues in the more salient way by showing a high sense of responsibility.

Though, the opposition All Progressives Congress campaign team was also super clever to have located a venue for the campaign in the heart of Jimeta-Yola metropolis. This helps stop many visitors from seeing the wonders the current administration has done especially in transforming Jimeta-Yola into a developed modern metropolis.

Honestly, Adamawa people are politically educated and know better how to go with the game of politics. Many were seen today trooping into the Jimeta-Yola metropolis to showing solidarity and unflinching support to the APC governorship candidate, Hajiya Aishatu Dahiru Ahmad Binani. A very strong woman that is known for her untiring support for women and children. This group of people has more than enough reason to support and campaign for her. Can she be able to win the election due to clear driving forces that the executive Governor has underground?

After the physical developmental projects laid down in the state and the excellent job done in the areas of education, health and civil servants’ welfare, and the security need of the state. And also the most honorable dealing of political matters. Did Binani stand a chance?

Unlike what we have seen in Maiduguri during Atiku’s visit, clear enmity was shown by those in authority. The executive Governor of Adamawa has maintained the tempo and made sure that the APC campaign Flag-off rally was free from political thugs even though, Adamawa was Atiku’s hometown and a People’s Democratic Party in the State.

Fintiri can now handle not only local champion politicians in Adamawa alone but the whole Nigerian politicians very well. His sense of honesty and hospitality has paid and every like-minded politician in Adamawa regardless of the political party must applaud his doggedness and extraordinary political approach.

Despite the immense and intense political pressure on him, the incumbent governor is seen leading the President’s entourage to the Lamido’s Palace with due respect and dignity. Without showing an iota or any kind of political differences. Something difficult for many to do and least expected from the governor himself.

Fintiri may perhaps win or lose the forthcoming election but his true loyalty, respect for almost all the politicians around including the opposition, and commitment to the masses show his clear quality as a competent true gentleman man that has the required leadership qualities.

Besides, the political rivalry in Adamawa is productive and lays some level of playing ground for every politician to be mindful of his words, and actions. Thus, leading to development in terms of infrastructure, society, and economy.

Youth And The Wayward Lifestyle

It is becoming the norm in society how youth to embrace a wayward lifestyle thereby deviating from cultural and religious teachings toward uprightness. Youth is considered an important asset to any society or country but the continuous growth of wayward lifestyles is bringing a doubtful mind over the future of the masses in hands of those unambitious youth.

Nowadays, youth fall into a questionable lifestyle from different means where the modernization of social media platforms encourages to take a complex part in influencing the youth to get involved in something usually unacceptable in their places, some of the youth were enforced by poor educational backgrounds or negligence of parent control during upbringing. By whatever means, the act of witnessing youth in such a way can be threatening.

Social media platforms are oftentimes opened with no strict and guided rules or regulations against any form of misbehaving. This, pave way for the display of nudity and other uncensored content leading to moral bankruptcy.

Those involved in this unfortunate act should keep it at the back of their minds that the internet doesn’t forget and should get ready for the consequences associated with their actions.

More often than not, womanizing has become cheap and affordable as many young men no longer see it as a habit that need not to be involved in due to its catastrophic consequences on the life of individuals. This particular act also makes them superfluously spend their money.

Also, the menace of drug use abuse has immeasurable effects and continues to threaten the life and the future of the younger generation. In most of our higher institutions, one must come across groups of students at various locations abusing drugs making them became academically unproductive and worthless. This has also greatly affected their physical, mental, health, and general well-being.

Political thuggery is yet another ugly act that youth involved themselves in, those youth are been sponsored by insincere political demagogues who usually see them as miscreant elements ready to kill and wound anybody against a particular political will, for chicken change rather than the future of the society.

Note that, the sons and daughters of those politicians sponsoring you were abroad studying perhaps in the world most prestigious universities and their employment also is guaranteed regardless of grade or qualifications.

Unfortunately, the youth’s recalcitrant attitude and the highest level of moral decadence in our climes is leading many to make posts on social media and attacking, traditional leaders, political leaders, and even religious clerics, disrespecting their persons because of differences in religious sects or other thoughts and controversial religious ideologies.

However, there are many ways to present your thought and ideas about burning issues in society without necessarily making pejorative statements against protected and respected individuals. One can criticize constructively going along with facts to sell ideas, opinions, or thoughts about contemporary and controversial societal issues.

For the children of the poor, It’s obvious that the labour market is jam-packed with graduates from various higher institutions of learning looking left, right and center for employment opportunities. And the government of the day out carelessness and strategic thinking kept on announcing to those poor youth that there were no jobs available. A situation that coacced many youth in to social vices and other juvenile delinquency.

Above all, it’s imperative for youth to utilize their youthful exuberance and maintain highest level of Decorum. Government on the other hand, should continue to create policies and programs that will help reduce the number of hundreds of thousands unemployed youth roaming the street to the barest minimum. Also, parents, traditional leaders and religious clerics should not relent in their efforts in preaching good morals making sure that those younger people are distinctively guided on religious beliefs, cultures, norms and values of our dear societies.

Opinion: On Kolmani Oil Well Controversy

Since the announcement of the success of oil discovery by the Muhammad Buhari-led administration, through Nigeria National Petroleum Company, NNPC limited, people from different parts of the country, jubilate over the milestone achievement.

However, the development came with a lot of controversies by the citizens who are in one way or another other have a direct or indirect connection to the development that is from some groups of people and individuals from the host community.

Immediately after the groundbreaking ceremony which was attended by his Excellency President Muhammad Buhari, Bauchi State Governor Sent. Bala Muhammed, the Group Managing Director NNP, and Mele Kyari among other dignitaries in Nigeria argue breaks between the neighboring states, Gombe and its mother state Bauchi, about who owns the Kolmani oil well.

Besides, Bauchi may be right to claim the ownership of Kolmani oil because the oil well is located in Barambu, a village under Alkaleri local government area of Bauchi state, Bauchi’s cites the presence of their governor at the breaking ceremony as one of the reasons that they own the oil well.

Gombe state, on the other hand, has more than a reason to claim the ownership because of their closeness to the point where the oil was drilled. Therefore oil as liquid stuff can not just be for Bauchi alone.

Unfortunately, farmers operating within the host community of MaiMadi, kwaimawa among the other 7 communities complained that they were not paid for the damage done to their farmlands in course of the oil drill.

Among them, one claimed the ownership of the kolmani oil well which according to him was inherited from his father and yet to be compensated. Also, the report indicates that workers who served during the seismic operation were not properly paid but only promise to be paid on unspecified dates.

Farmers and other people from the host community should be well informed about the operation of that kind, to be able to seek entitlement associated with the oil drill operation in their localities.

With the aforementioned allegations, one must note with dismay challenging the Public Relations section of that particular for failing the Social responsibility service expected to render to those communities.

Above all, what Nigerians need to know is how much we need to poster national development above our interest to build Nigeria of our dream. We should also learn from the experience of our people down the south, there is a need for corporation and mutual understanding between the two states, the farmers, and of course the entire host community to benefit from such a remarkable achievement.

Ibrahim Garba writes from Bauchi.
