I have been engaged in social political conversations now for well over a decade and it won't be out of place for me to say things are not getting better. Every single time we have had to hope in expectations of some greater good, it would just seem our hopes are nothing but a curse. My friend, please don't despair. Nigeria can still be great. I really believe that because what it takes is what you and I can do differently. We are all in the know as per the vices that plagues our country; we are constantly pressing for huge turnarounds but we are yet to actually consider the one thing that can be done differently. That thing can only be done by you and it is for you to make a radical decision to stand out in practical realities and not with pulpitarial fiat. If individually we can begin to make popular these conscious decisions to stand out, then our hope for a better Nigeria remains ever strong.
