Independence message. A five Minutes read.

My country Nigeria! My country Nigeria! with so much potential but yet so little reach.

My country Nigeria! whose history challenges her so much that her future fails to recognise the need to grasp the essence of sustainable nation building, development and socioeconomic equality.

My country Nigeria! whose leaders are far from leading but rather deep in growing the weight of their own pockets..

My country Nigeria! whose citizens continues to sell their votes and watch as the future of the Nation and children yet unborn continue to play as rags in the hands of the so called elected.

My country Nigeria! has a million unemployed graduates with thin hope of been employed, that often get frustrated, fall for scam, waste resources, and  eventually loose sight of what matters. To say the level of unemployment is unprecedented, would be a lie told by me as it has always been this way.

My country Nigeria! has lost so many innocent people to poverty, epidemic, corruption, terrorism, and enslavement by those higher up in the food chain. My country Nigeria has sustain wounds so deep that a story to tell is incomprehensible.

My country Nigeria! has the richest Natural resources, richest pastors in the world, richest black man and woman in the world, richest politicians and yet has millions people living below a dollar per day.

My country Nigeria! has a gap between the rich and the poor that remains so obscene, even in the eyes of the devil. Corruption in my country has swallowed so deep that it needs the whole country to fight it, but lets be truthful how many sees the essence, how many people still have the fire in them, how many people still see the onions, how many sees hope.

Today Oct 1, is her independence and so therefore, the need to wish her  " Happy Independence " but the thing is that happy independence is something most of us just say for the sake of saying, their isn't any actual meaning to it and so, it remains irrelevant and less important in the heart of many.

My country is not just bad, but has so much good in it. The strength of my people, the survivor, the triumph, the we shall live spirit, and also the will and need to progress. For we as a Nation to grow we should stop asking what the country can do for us, but rather what we can do for our country! These words, these exact words, often sound like broken speech made by incapable politicians, authors and some over-priced motivational speakers.

This is not a poem, i hardly know the concept of what a poem entails, this is an expression. One that show case the strength Nigerians possess as citizens and as people. My country Nigeria, she is 56 years old today. My country Nigeria! we must, we must, overcome.
