The Founding Fathers of Nigeria: Late Sir Abubakar Tafawa Balewa; Chief Obafemi Awolowo and Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe.
We’ve got our traditional founding fathers in the persons of Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe, Sir Abubakar Tafawa Balewa, Chief Obafemi Awolowo but honestly our clime needs 21st Century Founding Fathers – Founding Fathers of a New Nigeria.
Leaders who see themselves as fathers of all and ready to fight corruption, unemployment, poverty, illiteracy, insurgency ….
We crave leaders not divided by political parties, ethnicity nor religious sentiments. Leaders who are ready to change the status. Passionate, assertive and aggressive in championing this noble cause.
50 years ago today’s leaders were followers and in 50 years time they won’t be there anymore. Time is fast. Life is transient. Yet we don’t want to invest in the hereafter and preserve our eternity.
Do your best, build the nation.
Leave behind good legacy, goodwill, goodness, fame and fortune.
