Great and conscious awakening by the southern governors. In everything in life a time for reality check and self confession must surely come.
Living in denials and pretense certainly does not endure. I was highly enthused listening and understanding the communique issued by the seventeen southern governors during their last meeting held in Asaba, Delta State capital.
They agreed with one voice and a sound mind as follows, they in strong terms condemned open grazing as out of fashion and outdated. That it must be put to a stop at least in southern states. They also courageously asked for much needed restructuring. These key issues among others are the fundamentals of the present crisis that gripped our dear nation.
Injustice has an expiry date . It’s only truth, justice and equity that endures. For this courageous act of the southern governors to come to terms with the issued communique is the beginning of better days ahead. In a country filled with corrupt and self serving leaders, it’s an encouragement to experience this development. This will surely bequeath greater things. We have for so long lived a marginalized lifestyle in a country that we rightly belong because we are birthed in certain geographical location.
This perpetuated for this long stretch because of pathetic greed and ignorance of those we entrusted with leadership. Our past and present got marginalized and beaten. With this development our future looks bright if there is consistency,one mind and one voice. Let’ us arise and take advantage of this moment. We have a right to better life.
Our land can provide that. I commend our dedicated activists who are fearless and not economical with the truth in most difficult times.
