OUR LAST COLLECTIVE JOURNEY TO THE PAST - Yahaya Balogun.

From Petra's Facebook.
 The administration of president Goodluck Ebele Azikwe Jonathan is our last collective journey to the past as a country.
 The battle between the incumbent government and the ordinary people is a battle for the survival of Nationhood, Leadership and Followership (NLF). Nigerian leaders have failed their followers. But Leadership influences the followership and the follwership engenders tranquillity of the society. The three (NLF) are intertwined but the buck of regulation of tranquility and organization of society rest squarley on the shoulders of leadership. Leadership strictly executes and adheres to all set of rules that govern the society. This is not the case with Nigerian leadership.
 In Nigeria, rather than place more emphasis on its entity as contraption or mere geographical expression, our problems in my opinion is leadership rather than the followership. This should be our urgent focus. Hypothetically, imagine how America or Britain will look like in terms of law and order if there are no set of rules strictly being executed by all branches of government through leadership? It will be unmitigated chaos.
 The unification of minds of ordinary Nigerians this time around will certainly veer Nigeria away from this famished road, and put Nigeria on the new road to change and recovery.
 I have not in my lifetime witnessed in the history of elections in Nigeria where incumbent is so rattled and intimidated by the collective power of the people. From the crannies of the north to south and to the east, it is a resounding and defeaning clamour for change.
 Inspite of all the intimidating resources, lies and deceitful campaigns by the government, the wind of change is blowing across Nigeria. Power truly resides in the hands of the people.
 The unprecedented collective participation of the Nigerian people in this forthcoming elections, is a manifestation of the determined minds of the suffering people to effect change through ballots.
 And change is coming to Nigeria.
