Africa is the cradle of mankind.
Blacks are the most resilient humans.
Coloured people gave the world her beauty.
Today no nation with upto 90% Black population is progressively progressive.
Give a Black man a gun, and he starts shooting his own.
Give a Black man power, and he starts oppressing his people.
Give a Nigerian money, and he becomes corrupt and animalistic.
We have all the facts and statistics of how our country is plummeting, yet, all we do is cry to God, and proclaim, “e go better”. That can change nothing, because God will not do for you what you can do for yourself. Like the words of St. Augustine of Hippo, “God who made you without you, will not save you without you”. Words alone cannot get the work done, neither can it correct the wrongs.
Nigerian youths, I say to us today, speak-up where ever you smell corruption. Fight hard when ever you see it raise its ugly head.
This must begin now, and anywhere and everywhere you find yourself.
Speak Now if you do not want to live in a country set for damnation.
Act Now if you want to hand to your children a great nation.
Fight Now if you do not want to die in a desolate nation that has been plundered by the ones before us.
The Black man was not created inferior, we made ourselves so; but these great minds that hears this shorfor will rewrite the story of Nigeria and Africa. Let us act Now!
