August 1st, 2016 – Change Change Change We All Hope To See By Comrade Maxwell Damilola Adeyeri

What a season that we are in, a period we are living to witness transformation of society through leadership, a season of global changes. God gave us a mandatory task and responsibility to determine the kind of changes we want in our society. Believe me or not the greatest power God gave us is the power of will i.e. the future of the world which you must use responsibly.

My very conscious friends and compatriot you will all agree with me that we are living to witness Political Confusion(political parties rising against each other base on ideological differences),Social Transition, Ideological Intervention, Philosopher Instability(people are not sure of what they believe anymore), Moral Manipulation(demise of our value and what we respect being washed away during this era of modernisation), Value Vacillation and Irresolution, Religious Conflict(killing people in the name of God), Scientific Introduction and Adversary, Technological Advancement that is running our life, Economic Interdependence resulting in globalization, Redefinition of Term and Constitution Revision taking places all over the world.

All these phenomenon have resulted in the changes we are witnessing. Changes like Massive Unemployment everywhere, The Rise of People to Power, The Collapse of Government( where people are protesting for immediate removal of their leaders despite their tenure not yet over), Global Economic Crisis, Failed States (situation where the state commander are not capable of taking sole and full responsibility of workers welfare and are not consistent in payment of their salaries), the Fall and Disgrace of Political, Civic Corporate and Religious Leaders, The Changes in Moral Compass(where nothing is visible), Transformation in the Traditional Values, Collapse of Sovereignty and Finally Nation being Governed and Led by People outside their country.

Moreover all these changes either directly or indirectly impact the citizen in one way or the other. A situation like Distrust of Leadership and Authority, Lawlessness, Liberalism, Permissiveness, Compromise, Immorality, Culture of Death, Culture of Violence, Culture of Devaluation, Generational Disillusionment and Sexual and Social Confusion( where men are not sure of what women are anymore).

My fellow countrymen, the world cannot heal itself, the people you hope on i.e. the government you voted for believe and always claimed the problem established or On ground are more than their policies, but doing nothing is not an option, whatever you allow you cannot criticise, whatever you avoid you cannot change.

You and hi must become answer to our own perfect change, we must know that whatever we permit we are responsible for.

In conclusion my fellow visionary and comrade of change you can either let things happen or you make things happen.

Now let’s get to work and make things work for ourselves…. Yes we can.

Are we have small pikin here wey fit die if they no vacillation him? My own value is don’t posibul to vacillation. I no understanding anything for wetin I am read here.

  2. I want to thank Comrade Maxwell Damilola Adeyeri for his insightful article, but I have a little disagreement. I fully agree with you sir that we are the architects of our various lives and we have sole responsibility to determine and shape our lives today and our futures. But Nigerian problems are rooted in tribalism, hatred, religions differences, cultural differences, corruption, oil dependent without any innovation, and corruption from every level of government and all sectors. No nation can witness any positive change or transformation without holiness, accountability, morality, pathrotism, and corruption free. But the fact is that PMB admistration cannot and no one can undo the damaged done to Nigeria in our forty years by looters, wicked politicians, unpatriotic people, and corrupt leaders of many years in 4 years. On globalization my brother, globalization will always be a curse for a decaying nation like Nigeria that depends solely on exploration of crude oil. Now that the oil is not bringing the needed revenue, Nigerians now realize how vulnerable we are economically with our total and insane dependent on crude oil as our main source of revenue. Where are the cocoa, yams, rubber plantation, coffee plantation, and groundnut pyramids in the north? We have abandoned those great resources for oil. What make naira so weak now is that we are a consuming nation that depends on imported rice, sugar, yams, coffe, and other finished products at the expense of naira thereby making dollar evendors stronger. Jobless Nigerian youths should go back to agriculture, poultry, and farming in order to become successful and turn themselves to instant millionaires.

    They should shun the temptation of looking for coprorate jobs in the cities. Globization is a great thing for any nation that prepares for it through sound education, constant electricity generation, security, provision of basic amnenties, innovation in science and technology, and investment in Agriculture because it will even get tigher. Globalization due to Internet, social media, and other technology has come to stay. But we must take advantage of it, and never run away from it. This where we disagreed brother Maxwell. Thanks.

  3. We Nigerians have to change our mindset about our dependability on the government if we really want to experience the type of change we are clamoring for. We need to come out of our comfort zone in order to witness the type of change we are looking for. According to late President Kennedy prior to his assassination, he said quote “n” quote ‘Ask not what your Country can do for you but What you can do for your Country’. Apart from being the most populous black nation, Nigeria is too big and diverse to experience sudden change that you were asking for. Let me assure you of one thing, if Buhari is removed today, the new president can never give you immediately relieve you are looking for.

    Good changes take some time to take effect. I understand our plight and I appreciate Mr. Adeyeri’s concern but what we are experiencing now is a build up from the previous administration. All those monies that our past leaders were stealing and hiding in foreign account could have made a big difference in our life now. Don’t forget that Buhari had earlier said his approach may make things little bit tougher for Nigerians for now but it’s going to yield a positive result. Our Major source of revenue is crude oil and considering the price of oil which has really fallen significantly there is little that the present Government can do. All we can do now is to start solving our problems locally or state by state.

    If one state adopts a program and successful in that program, other state can emulate and the system can spread into different part of the Country no time. The state government can start a program for example building 5 thousand kilometers of Roads. This is a job creation for many workers who couldn’t afford to pay their children school fees. The road may be connected to major roadway such as Lagos Road and all commuters will be charged some fees for traveling on that road thereby bringing more money into government purse. Government can also build Bridges, schools, hospitals providing job and making money out of this. Agriculture also is another source of revenue if we can effectively make use of it.

    There should be a solid provision of no interest loan to the local Farmers. Right now the only thing our government can do to ease the problem of food shortage is to temporarily allow importation of foods while we are working on locally manufactured foods. We should not sit down and expect Federal government to feed all 180 million populace. Our young graduants should also get up and think of what to do besides expecting office job. It is evident that government cannot address the problem of unemployment but can we do something differently to jumpstart the economy together?. America could not have survived if not because of its scientists who came up with the new technic in food production. They observed that the whole America may die of hunger if something was not done because they did not have fertile land as we do.

    They engineered their food and injected the needed minerals to their produce foods which made them produced an abundant of foods. For example, they injected potassium in their Banana because they knew Banana is a good source of potassium. That is why their Banana is the biggest in the world. Also their Oranges were fortified with vitamin C and their Vegetables with calcium and irons etc. Most of America foods are engineered but at least with that technology, they were able to feed themselves and the world. This is what our Senate should be discussing now not about who will be the next president or fighting for senate seat. We have a serious issue to address if we must survive as a nation.

  4. May I suggest: if your comment is a long one, cutting it with paragraphs is adviced, to encourage readers.

    Thanks!

  5. i really appreciate you all for you full understanding of the fact that change start from both me and you,i will jex drop dis piece of advice Don’t ever let somebody tell you … you can’t do something. Not even me. All right? You got a dream. You gotta protect it. People can’t do something themselves, they want to tell you can’t do it. If you want something, go get it. Period.”

  6. insightful one here my amiable comrade.
    It’s just unfortunate that this great country had been characterised with seat-tight confused leaders,blind leaders and childish leaders.
    The holy book( the bible) says crystal clear that ‘woe to the o land , when thy king is a child, and thy princes eat in the morning (eccl 10vs16) ).No wonder they are tossed to and fro like a child and they eat in the morning instead of working and busy strategising on how the nation will move forward.They use their very first opportunity to eat the national cake instead of equitably allocating them into useful and fertile projects.leader’s whose god is their belly.i know one day,true change will come, and that change begins with our mindsets.

    Thanks

  7. i must confess that i salute everybody courage and support,believing the fact that change we both want start from you and me. Let me drop this pix of advise….k Don’t ever let somebody tell you … you can’t do something. Not even me. All right? You got a dream. You gotta protect it. People can’t do something themselves, they want to tell you can’t do it. If you want something, go get it. Period.”

  8. i didn’t see any solution proferred,we all known the world is going saga, but delebrating on our plight isnt a way around, lets look for a solution to be problem, there must be a way out somehow,we have given time to much time, its time for enacting the change and really seeing the changes, but wat are we changing if we ourselves are not change .
    Enough of casting aspersion we all know who the real enemies are, OUR MIND. THE MINDSET. what have we not feed our mindset on. as the hope of the nation what have we not done. we all know what we have done, as many of us including me will start listing things we have done. but enough of that too; lets look at “WHAT HAVE WE NOT DONE” i will Quote David Oyedepo you cant continue to do the same things and expect a different result. i believe we should look within and really see where the problem lies. lets transform our mind,even paul the Apostle understood the importance of that, lets not be comformed to this world but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, and there’s only one way out to renew the mind that i am very sure of “THE LIVING WORD OF GOD”. PEACE.

  9. the nation cannot experience positive transformation when corruption persist…postive change is inversely proportional to corruption
