How to resolve our national problems, By Sunday Adelaja

These are the most important and most pressing issues I see in Nigeria as an entity, if we are able to repair these points under our future is promising and shiny:

An underdeveloped individuals is a legal responsibility, 60% literacy: We want to aggressively develop our human capital sources. A nation with the best variety of out of college kids just isn’t severe about growth.

Lack of values and ignorance of how to develop them: It’s like our authorities and other people on the whole don’t have an understanding of the position of worth system in national growth. We want to deliberately research and construct values into our individuals and into the complete materials of our society.

Unregulated inhabitants progress and lack of damily planning: A matter of nice disgrace to us as a nation is our earnings per capita. This downside will persist till we do one thing about our fee of inhabitants progress. We want to study from China and start to implement household planning proper now. We will begin by limiting a girl to a most of three kids and a most of six kids per household or per father.

Lack of regulation and order: Sadly our nation has not learnt to reside by regulation and order. Sure we’ve parliament however we lack the tradition of abiding by the regulation. This issue alone might propel us to grow to be a civilised nation. This may take a tough work in cultivating a brand new thoughts set in our individuals.

Biometric registration of all Nigerians: Statistics and figures should not part of our tradition but. We should know that data and biometric information of each citizen and foreigners in our nation have to be a matter of highest precedence. So long as we don’t have the information of each particular person dwelling in our nation, then we don’t have a rustic. We’re solely doing imitation of a rustic. It’s the very fundamental requirement for us to name ourselves a rustic.

The elites versus the poor: Our society is construct on feudalism ideas when a person that has is worshipped by the have nots. Therefore everybody else desires to attain some degree of energy both political or monetary in order that they’ll even be adored by their countrymen. This should change if we’re to construct a very civilized society. We want to make all equal earlier than God and earlier than the regulation. We should try to construct an egalitarian nation, as a substitute of a bourgeoisie class aware nation we’re presently operating.

No to secessions, sure to reconstruction: Our range is one among our best blessings by God. We must always not let some separatist parts poison our emotions in the direction of each other. We’re higher collectively therefore we should all struggle in opposition to all types of secessionist actions in our nation. Until you need your kids to grow to be refugees like Syrians, Liberians, Ukrainians or Sierra Leonians who had the unhealthy luck of being pressured out of their lands due to separatist wars.

Consultant democracy of all main teams within the nation: Nigerians like to blame management for all their woes, whereas there’s a reality to this, it’s not precisely as our individuals see it to be. Management doesn’t compose of solely the president and the parliament, however all residents of the land. We’re all chargeable for the properly being of our nation. All of us ought to present management and take part within the management of the land. By taking accountability for the place we’re we grow to be the leaders there. This mindset have to be drilled into our individuals, such that we don’t merely wait for somebody to do one thing for us however slightly to individually take accountability to construct the form of nation we would like for ourselves.

Faith have to be guided and controlled: Faith is meant to be a optimistic pressure in nation constructing if properly channeled however with the best way faith is given free fall in our nation, it might grow to be the best risk to our nationhood. The federal government have to be daring sufficient to develop a algorithm by which all religions within the nation should agree to abide. All have to be equal earlier than the regulation together with spiritual organizations.

I’ve tried to paint a slightly goal and optimistic image of this nice nation referred to as Nigeria. I occurred to be born there and I’m so grateful and pleased with that reality, therefore regardless of dwelling overseas for many of my life I nonetheless preserve my Nigerian citizenship. I agree that plenty of the factors and statistics I introduced on this work could be objected to by critics, that’s not an issue for me. In truth I welcome all constructive criticism of my works.

I nonetheless, will insist that we start to communicate out in regards to the optimistic issues our nation represents. I’ve personally visited over 60 international locations in all continents and I could make daring to say I’ve by no means fairly seen a individuals group like Nigerians. We’re a most unusual individuals. Nigerians stand out and stand tall compared with any group of individuals wherever. Sadly, for the damaging campaigns and propaganda in opposition to essentially the most populous black nation, we’re but to absolutely realised our potentials. Therefore I’m interesting to us Nigerians to start to acknowledge all the nice issues about our nation. Charity begins at house, if we are going to start to communicate properly of ourselves then solely would the remainder of the world comply with swimsuit to have fun us.

It’s excessive time we start to inform our tales, in any other case it’s those that hunted and nonetheless hunt after us who will find yourself telling us who we’re or who we’re not. These damaging studies and propaganda in opposition to Nigeria and Nigerians was additionally began by these hunters, till we ourselves purchased into the negativity and now can solely discuss evil of ourselves.

Mates, please let’s change the narration, let’s promote one of the best of ourselves to the remainder of the world. I’m not saying we should always not criticise our nation. No, by no means, I’m a significant critic of our nation myself, however we should always not sabotage ourselves within the course of. Like I mentioned earlier to start with of this text, there may be at all times the opposite aspect to a coin, we have to be diligent sufficient not to solely concentrate on the damaging however with the same vigour we are able to likewise inform of the nice strides of our nation.
