AS Nigeria celebrates one more commemoration of her freedom from expansionism, it is important to ceaselessly analyze parts of our advancement and national life.
As a logician once composed, the unexamined life does not merit living. neediness I, hence, anticipate that all Nigerians, and especially the initiative, will set aside the effort to think about all things relating to our social, financial and political advancement, with a view to not just understanding why the nation has neglected to satisfy the fantasies of its establishing fathers, yet in addition concocting thoughts and positive moves to make Nigeria to its legitimate spot in the assemblage of countries. With regards to this and in further fortification of my long-held view that no legislature is equipped for without any assistance realizing full advancement without the commitment, penance, and help of the populace. While this can come in different structures, for example, installment of assessments as and when due, it can likewise appear as generosity or giving, a component which lamentably is yet to take full hold among the nation’s rich.

through its Chairman, Allen Onyeama, declared an idea to carrier Nigerians from South Africa at no expense to the evacuees, the move was met with massive applause and increase by Nigerians. This sacrificial activity carried with it enthusiastic intensity among Nigerians of various clans and ethnic gatherings tantamount to the elation of autonomy 59 years prior. The high purpose of the clearing was the point at which the evacuees upon their appearance broke into an interpretation of the National Anthem. The transport which apparently cost the aircraft a large number of Naira is maybe extraordinary and has properly realized requires the conferment of a national honor on Chief Onyeama. Notwithstanding, more significantly, it indicates exactly how generous activities, if appropriately bridled, can add to patriotism and national advancement.
By this solitary activity, a large number of the evacuees and endless others have had their confidence in Nigeria and their kindred nation men reestablished.
Yet, as expressed prior, this is a zone where a great deal more still should be finished. Nigeria is a nation blessed with more tremendous human and material assets than a large portion of the created nations of the world that have per capita pay of $300,000 or more and furthermore the future of 70 years. In any case, per capita salary in Nigeria is just about $300 while the future is 52 years. About 70% of Nigeria live in contemptible destitution with under N500 per capita.
