Nigeria In The Mess: The Consequences of Missed Opportunity and Attitude PuzzleNigeria In The Mess: Consequences Of Missed Opportunity And Attitude Puzzle

Opinions
...The prosperity of any nation is the simple result of a collective and sincere commitment by all who are proud to be identified with their nation. As such, those who share in a society should show an identity that is birthed by a responsibility and love for one another and for their nation... This is the climax of Travis Hirshi’s conception in his 'social bond' theory. Believe it or not, the bond expected as a society (the Nigerian society inclusive) is one that replicates the instructions contained in the scriptures, which reads: love your neighbour as you love yourself.

It is not to be skept

Buhari: How Not To Squander An Opportunity – The Analysis

Breaking, Opinions, Politics
The turn of events in the Muhammadu Buhari presidency, between May 2015 and January 2018, leaves many learning new lessons in how not to squander an opportunity. This is because at the onset of his administration, many had argued that his was the last chance to Nigeria to get it right. Many also gave him the benefit of the doubt and permitted his initial missteps. But as 2019 ticks in, the tide seemed to have changed and the pendulum is steadily swinging against his administration. As it is, the administration seems to have taken the patience of Nigerians for granted. Indeed, Nigerians were ready to permit Buhari’s mistakes because they knew he had been disconnected with governance for over 30 years before voting him. For this reason, his initial mistakes were tolerated. Even str
