NIGERIA,WHERE IGNORANCE IS CELEBRATED ABOVE KNOWLEDGE.

0

REPUTATION IS THE OUTWARD MANIFESTATION OF AN INWARD TRAIT CALLED INTEGRITY. THE SULLIED IMAGE OR REPUTATION OF NIGERIA IS A DIRECT OUTCOME OF ITS ROTTEN SYSTEMS WHERE FALSEHOOD REIGNS ABOVE TRUTH, WHERE MEDIOCRITY REIGNS ABOVE EXCELLENCE, WHERE IGNORANCE IS CELEBRATED ABOVE KNOWLEDGE. WHERE DARKNESS REIGNS OVER LIGHT. WHERE INEQUITY PRESIDES OVER JUSTICE WHERE CROOKEDNESS REIGNS ABOVE STRAIGHTFORWARDNESS. WHERE LAZINESS IS REWARDED AND HARD WORK IS PUNISHED.

LET SOMEONE EXPLAIN TO BUHARI THAT IT WAS THE FAILURE TO REVERSE THESE DEBILITATING TRAITS THAT KILLED NIGERIA.. THE GLOBAL COMMUNITY HAS MOVED ON IN ANTICIPATION OF THE SUCCESSOR-STATES ALREADY EMERGING FROM NIGERIA OF WHICH THE REFERENDUM FOR THE FIRST ONE BEING THE EASTERN HALF OF SOUTHERN NIGERIA, IS ALREADY IN THE CARDS AS WE CAN SEE FROM THE BRITISH PARLIAMENT.

OTHERS ARE AT VARIOUS STAGES OF READINESS ON THE WAY TO EXIT REFERENDUM.
NIGERIA HAD 48 YEARS TO RESTORE EQUITY BUT INSTEAD CHOSE WICKEDNESS.

President Muhammadu Buhari yesterday said the major point of con­cern to him was redeeming Nigeria’s image among na­tions of the world by eradi­cating corruption. The President, who spoke in Ile Ife, during the grand finale of the 41st Convocation of Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile Ife, Osun State, said ef­forts are on to recover all national assets that have been looted by various individuals and bodies in the past. He, however, urged all Nigerians, especially job seekers to shun corrup­tion in its entirety, even in the face of living con­dition that is below opti­mum; assuring that his administration was work­ing assiduously to better the lot of Nigerians. Regarding high level of unemployment in the country, President Buhari, who was repre­sented at the event by Prof. Julius Okojie, the National Universities Commission, NUC boss, said his administration had made it a top priority to address by bringing on board several entrepre­neurship initiatives that would create an enabling environment for job cre­ators to not only thrive but excel. He added: “Promo­tion of local product, en­couragement of the export market, tapping of indig­enous raw materials are some of the avenues for this to operate. As fresh graduates with a multitude of invigorating ideas, you are encouraged to forward your proposals under the appropriate parastatals and agen­cies.” “To the fresh gradu­ates as representatives of your alma mater, OAU, you have a lot to contrib­ute to making this coun­try a place worth living and reducing the brain drain that has plagued us for many years in the past. “A major point of con­cern is the need to re­deem our image in the comity of nations by a complete eradication of the hydra-headed mon­ster of corruption that has lived among us for several years. “Embracing corrup­tion will only take us backwards, soil our good name and destroy our common heritage. I want to believe that I can count on you to individually and collectively improve the image of the country by being worthy ambas­sadors of your families and of this great and no­ble institution.” On security, which has been a major source of challenge to the country, President Buhari said he is determined that insur­gency in the country will be a thing of the past in very near future. In his remarks, the newly appointed chan­cellor of the university, Alhaji Yahaya Abubakar, the Etsu Nupe, lauded the anti-corruption war of the Federal Govern­ment, saying tackling the scourge of indiscipline and corruption which had driven the country to the brink of oblivion must be of great impor­tance to all Nigerians. The traditional ruler, who was conferred with Doctor of Letters, D.Litt, Honoris Causa along­side, President, African Development Bank, Dr Akinwumi Adesina, who got honorary degree of Doctor of Science, D.Sc, Honoris Causa, however, appealed to government to sustain industrial harmony and peace by fulfilling wholeheart­edly all conditions of its agreement with union staff.
