As we all know, Nigeria is full of great resources and potential. There is an abundance of gold, oil, bitumen, fine stones, fertile lands, diamonds and other mineral and natural resources. Of all the abundance of both mineral and natural resources, the greatest of all resources Nigeria has been gifted with is her people (Nigerians).

Nigerians are the most intelligent breeds of human beings in the world yet the poorest because of their inability to refine their minds. Until Nigerians can discipline themselves, they can’t conquer their lands, conquer their minds, their oils, the gold, the diamonds and the various resources and the only set of persons that can completely cause these changes are the YOUNG PEOPLE.

Nigeria needs to be restructured and rebranded from their old thinking and their old habits. A reformed from their old attitude and rebirth from their old behaviour and everyone has a big role to play in this rescue Nigeria project. 

We need more meaningful Nigerians in politics and governance. We need more of the young people and women to be involved in decision making, to head industries, to formulate laws and policies that will lead to the emancipation of Nigerians from suffering, corruption, unemployment, poverty and crime.

It is time for the Nigerians to rise and take their place in destiny. It’s time for Nigerians to become involved in choosing their leaders.

In this light, I urge all Nigerians both home and abroad,  to rise and become part of the system.  Create a path for yourself. 

Don’t wait for anybody to toss you around, get your votes card which is your weapon to fight, go out and vote your true credible leaders come 3023. Become an agent of change in your family, in your neighbourhood, in your community, in your city, in your state and your country. This will reflect in Nigeria.  

To the YOUNG people, be creative, Put your mind to work,  Let innovative ideas come from you. Set a trail. Leave a mark. Become busy with creative work. Add value to people and your environment.  Let the world notice you are doing something that will change the status quo. Become the change you want to see. 

We are Nigerians and we must rebuild our country.
