Nigeria will remain a Sick Giant as long as it is perpetually bedeviled and plagued by grotesque incompetent leaders suffering from historical amnesia.
We will continue to progress retrospectively with abysmal ridicule from lesser countries.
Nigeria can rise again and take her place if our demographic mediocrity and parochial loyalty to individuals in power is subordinated to true nationalism; consciously and conscientiously buried.
Nigeria is merely floating at the moment. The crop of officialdom we have are nothing but a Tsunami to this raped Nation.
Nigeria has everything required to lead Africa. We have the intellectuals, we have the wealth, we have great men and women with vision; but focused and visionary leadership has remained a challenge since independence. Ethnicity, religion, zoning and primitive partisanship has continued to hold us back.
Nigerian has lost her birth-right and big brother status. We pray our children in their own generation wakes up the sleeping giant.
Africa will raise again!
