i think because the outside
world has more than often
drummed it into their ears...
that nothing works in nigeria
and those in leadership tends
to do things in a way that leaves
much to be desired...
every citizen seems to agree
they're a failure!
so depressing conclusion!
if nothing can ever work in nigeria
or, other african countries
why, tell me, why do all these
so-called developed citizens
willing to die amidst insecurity
why, tell me, why mtn made a huge
profit in its corporate history- such
profit it had never made before?
only in nigeria where 'nothing works'!
things don't work on their own...
people make things work!
you and i!
when we realize that the sachet of
'pure water' we throw around eventually
accumulate to become rubbish and a heap
but when you and don't care...
when we assume the philosophy
of every man for himself and god for
us all...then we find looters, cheats, cynics
and what have you in our rank!
take a look at this forum...did you know
this forum started with just one member?
did you know this forum took off in february
2008? did you know if the first member assumed
it won't work the whole idea will fall flat?
it took all of us and the unwavering faith and focus
we have for the forum to keep it going...
that's the way to see life...there're members on
this forum who are quite and 'easy-going'...
they may not be in the limelight of the forum...
does that mean they're less important?
it takes every member to keep this forum
that's the way the free accommodation
project can and will be!
true, you'll have some who will want to
abuse the project...but the project shan't
go down because of them...
just as we shan't shut down this forum
because of spammers and the like!
i think i've talked too much
...and it's still my 2rupees!
