One cannot say any where in this world is perfect. That means we will find bad and good people alike everyday, every time and of course every place and our dear Nigeria is not left out.
The people ensuring Nigeria remains a bad place are not resting. They are not observing any holiday. Why then should we? Don’t you see that they will always be ahead?
Let us light up the darkness.
Let us light up Nigeria.
Let us brighten up the night
Let us light up Nigeria
Let us make Nigeria a better place.
Let us light up Nigeria.
And you know what, it begins with you.
It begins with you means
It is time we start asking questions.
It is time we know our rights.
It is time we hold the government by her words.
It is time we don’t take NO for an answer.
It is time we stop taking anything they give and swallowing all the lies they tell us.
It is time we know everything does matter.
It really does matter what our government does beginning with Mr. President to Boss Governor and Oga Senator not leaving out security and the cleaner down the hall. Have you thought about why people glory in selling fake products and do not care the number of lives lost to fake medication? Well it is not just about the money, but because it doesn’t matter. To them, it doesn’t matter if we live or die.
Have you considered the reasons why the bulbs we buy at N400 doesn’t last longer than a week? Over and above you and I having to keep spending our little resources enriching them by buying more bulbs, to them it doesn’t matter. If we don’t buy other will. If we don’t buy today, come tomorrow we will.
Have you wondered why government steals from the government and feed us with lies upon lies? Well, it is not just about the money, or lying to get out of trouble, but because it doesn’t matter. We really do not matter to them because if we did, they will not watch us with folded arms, while we suffer and can’t even afford the money to have a hair cut.
Well have you wondered why our children don’t bother studying anymore? Why should they, when like provisions, they can buy grades like shopping in a mall. If we can buy grades off the counter of the university, then why does it matter studying.
To you reading, I know you may say it doesn’t matter. After all this is Nigeria 🇳🇬. Let us not say it doesn’t matter because it really does matter. What you do next, does matter. What you do with this message does matter. And it does matter if you share this message.
Let us not stop at wishing things to get better. Let us work things to get better. I know at the end of the month like this, many messages carrying blessings will flood social media. I am not against prophetic utterances and blessings for the new month. All I am saying is the prophecy works better when you play your part. Grace builds on nature. God uses what you have to bring about what you need. Just as we expect July to be better for us, so too does July expects us to be better for it.
Stop wishing. Start working. Start doing.
Faith without works is dead (James 2:14-26). Tell me; what is faith without prayer and what is prayer without faith. If your prayer lacks faith, then it is dead. And I say here “Prayer without works is dead”. As we pray, let us do what needs to be done. Let us light up Nigeria. #lightupnigeria
Finally, may the tears of June water the flowers of JULY.
