I totally understand that Nigerians are accustomed to trend, what if our cry for good governance will have to accommodate more salient roles played by key figures to stir the nation into more productivity and representation. I’m totally keeping my fingers crossed on the pool of possibilities in the current twist of fate , but one topic that is worth some more questions and answers is the issue , that revolves around the spike in killings in our society.
We need to be aware that the life of every human is very important, not connecting it to age, ethnic affiliations and political associations. For our nation to achieve its full potentials of greatness , then every one has to be part of that change. How we handle societal issues resonates from our general perspectives and values , and we need to discuss every issue that is alien to the progress and development of our country.
