OP-ED: Nigeria’s Destiny Lies in Our Hands

By Daniel Abigail

Nigeria, a nation rich in cultural diversity, abundant resources, and resilient people, stands at a critical juncture in its history. The destiny of this great nation rests not solely on fate or circumstance but on the collective actions, choices, and determination of its citizens.

Nigeria has been navigating a number of obstacles for decades, including political unrest, infrastructure shortages, socioeconomic inequality, and the difficult work of nation-building. Despite these obstacles, the country has demonstrated resiliency and an unwavering spirit, as demonstrated by the creativity and tenacity of its people.

Nigeria’s destiny is closely tied to the activities of its people, which is one of the fundamental facts that are felt throughout the country. From the bustling cities to the rural communities, every Nigerian has a role to play in creating a country that is successful, peaceful, and welcoming. It is our collective responsibility to favourably impact the country’s expansion and progress.

If we all keep waiting for the government to take care of everything for us, Nigeria will never reach the promised land. Ultimately, it is our nation, and each and every one of us has a say in how it develops.

As the heartbeat of Africa, Nigeria’s trajectory toward progress, unity, and prosperity hinges on the actions and choices made by each individual within its borders. The destiny of this great nation rests not solely in the hands of its leaders but in the collective efforts of its citizens.

Tinubu cannot do it alone. He cannot be everywhere at once to ensure that the laws are followed. Tinubu is not the lecturer who takes bribes from students so they can pass their exams.
He is not one of those law enforcement officials standing at unauthorised roadblocks, demanding money from innocent ctizens.

Tinubu is not the Yahoo boys who extort the innocent citizen of their hard earn money and see fraud as norms. Tinubu is not the producers whose products are of high cost in their own country (Nigeria) but cheaper in a neighbouring country

He is not the proprietor of the petrol station who thinks it is normal for people to be exploited. It’s true that he is the president and has a responsibility, however, by following the law and doing our part to advance national growth, we may make it simpler for him.

Nigeria’s people own the power to determine its future. Nigerians can create an inclusive, accountable, and responsible culture that will lead to the country’s political, social, and economic prosperity. It is through collective determination, resilience, and a shared vision for progress that Nigeria can realize its potential as a beacon of hope and prosperity in Africa.
