The Nigerian Proclamation – One Year After!

Written by NaijaEcash

Topics: Nigerian, Ramblings

Last year, a fellow Nigerian Blogger, Solomonsydelle wrote an article THE NIGERIAN PROCLAMATION. It generated enough uproar that caused BBC News to write an article on it. Even though I do not blog about politics, I quite identify with the burden of Solomonsydelle . I share the dream he has for a better Nigeria.

One year after that write-up, it is time to take account how far each Naija brother and sister have contributed to make our nation the IDEAL we dream and talk about!  Read the Proclamation Full Text below and tell us where you stand. As far as the Nigeria Project is concern, we will love to know whether you are a PILLAR or a CATERPILLAR.


THE NIGERIAN PROCLAMATION

IN RECENT HISTORY, NIGERIANS HAVE BEEN OVERWHELMINGLY BETRAYED BY THOSE CHARGED WITH ADDRESSING THEIR NEEDS. INSTEAD OF SERVING THE PEOPLE, PUBLIC SERVANTS HAVE SERVED THEMSELVES TO THE DETRIMENT OF THE MASSES. THE RESULT IS A NATION LACKING ADEQUATE INFRASTRUCTURE, ORGANIZATION AND SECURITY.

THE INEFFECTIVENESS OF NIGERIAN LEADERS INDICATES A LACK OF ACCOUNTABILITY TO THE CONSTITUENTS. NIGERIANS ARE NO LONGER RELEVANT TO THE LEADERS, THUS, LEADERS DO NOT FEEL RESPONSIBLE TO THEM.

THE RECENT FAILURE TO CONDUCT A FREE AND FAIR ELECTORAL PROCESS WAS YET ANOTHER ILLUSTRATION THAT THE NEEDS OF THE MANY ARE SECONDARY TO THE WANTS OF THE IMPORTANT FEW.

FROM THIS DAY, ALL NIGERIANS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE FUTURE OF THIS GREAT & POWERFUL COUNTRY. CONSEQUENTLY, ALL NIGERIANS MUST COMMIT THEMSELVES TO THE FOLLOWING:

1. WE MUST DEMAND THAT ELECTED OFFICIALS BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR ACTIONS AND IN-ACTIONS.
2. WE MUST EXPECT DEMOCRATIC PRINCIPLES TO BE HONORED, RESPECTED AND MAINTAINED.
3. WE MUST BELIEVE THAT ALL NIGERIANS ARE EQUAL UNDER THE LAW AND SHOULD BE TREATED AS SUCH.
4. WE MUST APPLY OURSELVES TO IMPROVING THE LOT OF EVERY INDIVIDUAL NIGERIAN REGARDLESS OF GENDER, RELIGION, TRIBE OR SOCIAL STATUS.
5. WE MUST STRIVE TO MAINTAIN A UNITED REPUBLIC DESPITE OUR DIFFERENCES.

ONLY UPON ACHIEVING THESE PRINCIPLES CAN WE AS A PEOPLE FULLY LIVE UP TO OUR POTENTIAL AS A LAND OF GREATNESS. FOR OURS IS A COUNTRY RENOWNED FOR ITS ILLUSTRIOUS PEOPLE, AMPLE RESOURCES AND SHEER PHYSICAL BEAUTY.

    I have always believe Nigeria shall become a great
    nation in some time to come by grace of God.Because
    this is a country that is bless not only qualitative human
    resources but also with natural endowments which
    i believe is a prequisite for a developed country.

    In my personal capacity,i have been spreading the
    gospel of a best nigeria among league of nations.
    By telling all who cares to listen to always be upright
    in whatever they are doings and that a new Nigeria
    will soon emerge.

    I dearly love my great country NIGERIA.

    Hiya,

    Stumbled upon your website on the Nigerian blogosphere. I’d really like to know how you are progressing. I noticed that the Nigerian blogosphere is really busy but it appears very few Nigerian bloggers are monetizing their blogs. Is it difficult to make money from Blogs in Nigeria? Apart from Google-Adsense which other way can you earn money with your blog in Nigeria. I’m based in the UK but my ultimate interest is in Nigeria and teaching Nigerians how to earn money from the comfort of their living rooms. Would be great to hear from you. Please drop me a line at http://www.newbiesunion.blogspot.com.

    Thanks

  3. Thanks for talking about the Nigerian Proclamation. If we all just do the best we can, whatever that is, we all can create the Nigeria we dream of.

    God bless!
