It’s obvious from the way things are going, there might not be NIGERIA before 2023.
I keep having this feeling that Nigeria will be divided into two or three places before 2023. In fact, I don’t think there will be a 2023 presidential election.
Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo indirectly said this yesterday. I think the Yorubas and Igbos are up to something. I think it’s time we wake up from slumber and face the reality. We cannot be living with fear in our own fatherland.
A particular region(North) keep presiding over the rest from generation to generation. We are all Nigerians by birth and by the right for crying out loud. We deserve equal rights and justice. We cannot be living like slaves in the face of hunger and poverty.
So last week Sunday, Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo stylishly said Nigeria may break up if efforts are not made to address the cracks. He said efforts to mend the crack might be opposed, but such opposition would be defeated with focus and consistent prayers. Lol consistent prayers? Who is going to pray? Hahaha.
He said this on Sunday in Abuja at an interdenominational church service to commemorate Nigeria’s 60th Independence anniversary, according to Punch newspaper.
He made the statement referencing the biblical story of how Nehemiah championed the rebuilding of the broken walls of Jerusalem.
“The story should be a challenge to every Christian in Nigeria. It’s only that kind of Nehemiah’s love that will make us, as Nigerians, to rebuild the cracks we have in our walls today.
“For us in Nigeria, Nehemiah should be taken as a metaphor for those Nigerians who either reside in Nigeria or outside, to cry to God to use the abandoned opportunities in Nigeria to address our challenges of nation-building.
“Fortunately for us, our walls are not yet broken, but there are apparent cracks that could lead to a break if not adequately addressed.
“Nehemiah started with fervent prayers, seeking the face of God and pleaded with his king to allow him to return to Jerusalem to rebuild the broken walls because the wall signifies peace, security, contentment and prosperity. It represents the essence of the state of the nation.
“There’s an urgent need for a Nehemiah in our country, Nigeria, today. And like Nehemiah faced opposition in his efforts to rebuild the walls, any Nigerian that desires to rebuild Nigeria must also be ready to face stiffer opposition which will come in torrents. It can only be diffused by consistent focus and prayers.”
I think the Vice President is indirectly passing a message to Nigerians on what is going to happen soon. We should be prepared for the worse or the best.
