A Plea for Consideration: There was a time, not too long ago in Nigeria when despair and hopelessness was the bane of existence, a time when all problems seemed to defy all solutions, and everything seemed to head for collapse. Indeed, there was a time, when as it appeared, like the historic Israelites in the land of Egypt, or the idol worshippers in the land of Mekkah, the worst had to be experienced before God would send a messenger to take them to freedom. Even in those simple days, there was obvious need for a ‘Miracle’ to come to the rescue. Now, new times are setting in, Nigeria, and indeed the whole worlds are getting even more complex, yet smaller. There is an even greater demand for leaders with greater courage, vision and godliness to find solutions where non-seems to exist. In the Nigerian situation, more than at any time before, there is greater need for a leadership with potentials and capabilities to channel the path of economic development and provide the peace and stability required for sustainable growth; a political platform with leaders that are capable of formulating workable economic policies that can sustain high standards, and provide tools of empowerment to the youth including women. Nigerians need visionary leaders, New and prosperous Nigeria – New Nigeria

MARSHAL LIKE PLAN FOR AFRICA

But we cannot solve the urgent problems of poverty without a fourth step -- a substantial increase in funds for development. An investment fund of $50 billion per year that invites applications for health, education, and anti-poverty work will help build the capacity of the poorest countries for sustainable development. In the future, no country genuinely committed to open, corruption-free, pro-stability, and pro-investment policies should be denied the chance to progress because of the lack of basic investment in education and health..

STATE & CIVIL SOCIETY

Government can act in partnership with agencies in civil society to foster community renewal and development. The economic basis of such partnership is what is referred to as the new mixed economy. Reform of the state and government should be a basic orientating principled of a third way politics - a process of the deepening and widening of democracy with values thus: Equality, Protection & Security, Freedom as autonomy, No rights without responsibility, No authority without democracy, Cosmopolitan pluralism and philosophic conservatism...

By origin mankind were a single people or nation. That being so, God could have kept us all alike, with one language, one kind of disposition, and even one set of physical conditions to live in. But in His wisdom, He gives us diversity in these things, not only at any given time, but also in different periods and ages. This tests our capacity for unity and accentuates the need of unity and self esteem. Since geography has made us neighbours, let freedom make us friends and let us understand that the real issue now, then, lies on the question of whether we can collectively make sufficient unanimous, efficient declaration of unbreakable unity, stand by our declaration, rally behind common goals and understand our differences even during rough rides, which surely will be the price to pay but so negligible will they be compared to the surplus of economic and political growth to come afterwards.

"In Nigeria, where people live off politics and politicians and where, despite the propaganda, there are no real Civil Service but frozen-in "show me and I show you" and a few trusted appointees, there is now more than ever a healthy desire for a "more professional" administration again"

 

Let us rally behind our leadership whose true commitment towards lasting peace and economic progress is impeccable, let us understand the government innovative consultation process with a simple goal in mind: to let the citizens of this great state guide its plans and priorities for the years ahead. Let us support a government that is guided by following the very simple, four-step formula that has guided great leaders of the world. It will ask for citizens' input. They will answer. It will listen. It will take action. Here is a government that believes that this approach is the heart of democracy and the soul of leadership. Only by working together can we realize the benefits of our strong economy, identify and invest in the priorities that matter and realize the promise of our founding fathers. Nigeria has always known about that promise. Let us work together to feel and see the promise fulfilled.

"Tradition and nature are alike in the sense that they take many decisions 'out of play'. Activities and events are 'always done this way' or are accepted as 'natural'. Once tradition and nature are transformed, forward-looking decisions have to be taken, and we have responsibility for their consequences. who should bear responsibility for the future consequences of present activities (whether of individuals, nation or other groups) is one of the major concerns of the new politics, as is who provides security if things go wrong, how and with what resources.."
