October 1st, 2016 – Bimbo Akintola Urges Nigerians To Mark 56th Independence Anniversary With Sober Reflection
We have failed in certain ways and we have succeeded in so many other ways. This country has given birth to so many talents but you’d find out that so many of her talents are outside the country because the country is not conducive enough to stay in. There is a worldwide recession going on and obviously Nigeria cannot exist in isolation.
But it’s a Clarion call to all Nigerians that if you don’t take care of Nigeria, Nigeria cannot take care of you. We have people in the North who are suffering, most of them are even displaced, children going to bed hungry and all those things we thought are simple- we must pay attention to them. We need to come as one unit and start helping one another.
The situation in the North is an example of how what we must save as a people. We need to get up and fight for Nigeria. 56 years and there’s so much and so little to show for it. People are complaining about the current government, when are we going to stop complaining?
I think this period is when we need to reflect. The present government came in with the mantra of change, this is change that begins with each person.
