MESSAGE TO NIGERIAN YOUTH
The punishment which the wise suffer who refuse to take part in the government, is to live under the government of worse men. – Plato
Are you tired of suffering and smiling in Nigeria?
Do you believe that it is your eternal destiny to be in a Nigeria where nothing works?
Do you think that generators must always buzz in the background and be the source of power in Nigeria?
Have you settled and accepted Nigeria’s world status in deplorable roads and high accidents?
Do you regret those you have lost directly due to corrupt and greedy governance?
Are you embarrassed that Nigeria has the worst government in the world?
Does it hurt you that your family suffers and you cannot help them?
Does the very serious oil spillage in the Niger-Delta caused by government greed pain you?
Are you tired of ethnic violence and wish all those who kill other human beings or support and harbor such killers are dealt with in the harshest manner?
Are you frustrated about the masses in Northern Nigeria having 72.2% poverty prevalence, and levels equal to that of Eritrea, Bangladesh and Somalia?
Are you irked that Nigerians born today are, on the average, more likely to die before their 45th birthday?
Do you wish that Muslims and Christians can get along in Nigeria as they do in Ghana, or Burkina Faso with its Muslim majority and yet Christian elected President, or the peaceful reverse in Gabon, with its Christian majority, yet Muslim elected president and not be provoked to war by heartless, devilish devices; and that whoever does mob-war gets dealt with harshly?
Do you believe in a day where you are proud to say you are a Nigerian, your dignity is restored and the world clamors to visit and live in Nigeria?
Are you ashamed that today in Ghana, they say, ‘Nigeria-must-go!’
Do you ever think that the multitudes of masses should certainly be able to eject the handful of usurpist, insensitive leaders?
Are you fed up of the cabal, living in fortified mansions, with even more houses than they can never occupy overseas, from your God-given wealth, who look at you like you are a goat.
Are you tired of unintelligent leaders who embarrass you to the outside world?
Do you dream of the day when Nigeria not only solves its own problems, but also the problems of fellow African nations and African Americans?
We all know these questions. The list goes on infinitely.
Change is in your hands!
The Holy Bible says in Ecclesiastes 3 (KJV)
3 To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: 2 A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to uproot that which is planted; 3 A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; 4 A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; 5 A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; 6 A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away; 7 A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; 8 A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace. …
The Noble Quran in 13:11 says what means:
For each one are successive [angels] before and behind him who protect him by the decree of Allah. Indeed, Allah will not change the condition of a people until they change what is in themselves. …
And Hadith says:
Abu Sa’id al-Khudri said, “I heard the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, say, ‘Whoever of you sees something wrong should change it with his hand; if he cannot, then with his tongue; if he cannot, then with his heart, and that is the weakest form of belief.'” [Muslim]
And Plato says:
The punishment which the wise suffer who refuse to take part in the government, is to live under the government of worse men.
Have you not truly had enough?
Do you not notice, that we are now going down on a most dangerous path, where by the time we act, the Niger Delta would be already polluted uninhabitable, Zamfara will all be toxic lead, the North will be a destroyed, poverty and disease ridden global terror haven, the East will be an overcrowded, toxic waste ridden concrete-jungle; more of our loved ones will have died for useless reasons. Planes will keep falling from the sky, crashing into buildings and bushes, bodies popping up in rivers, buildings and holy sanctuaries being bombed and violated, kidnapping, piracy, oil plundering, with blood, blood, blood, everywhere. And the truth will be that, not just our leaders, but we all Nigerians will be written of in history as the scum of the earth, a people who were blessed most abundantly with natural and human resource, yet lacked the coherence and ability to simply lift themselves up, get rid of their hopeless governments and take their rightful seat in global affairs, Africa’s largest nation and the nation that represents the black race.
The present political class is the same recycled skin of the proverbial old lizard. They are good people, they have good intentions, but the age of their ideas is long past. We are at a crossroad as a nation, and at this moment history beckons to all of us to be a part of the change we need.
Decades after independence, neither our military nor civil political class has shown the necessary understanding, skills or ability to lead this country to a path of prosperity. In fact, we are being ruled by the same set of individuals whose only contribution is the systematic pillaging of our resources and perpetuation of themselves in power.
Power of the People
Nigeria has a 50% youth population who are marginalized by its government. Most of us youth are unemployed or marginally employed. But we actually easily wield the absolute power to change things. Do you agree that the time is now? That the time is now to restore average Nigerians to government and no longer be ruled by the caucus of our worst elements?
Our human capital is Nigeria’s greatest resource. Nigeria’s village squares, our online fora, where brilliant youth engage and discuss their lives, providing real time invaluable statistics, must be incorporated as a relevant part of a new intellect-based system of governance in direct contact with the people.
Do you believe that the major problem we have had as a nation, is being ruled by vestiges of colonialism, the same crew of our worst products, who were schooled by the colonialist in the art of divide and rule and exploit the people. And that the political structures today, controlled by these colonial cabal is what make it impossible for any candidate who comes up under their greed guided vampire platform to do well? Do you recognize that it is time to stop whining and the time to act and give power back to the masses, and that Nigeria has such intelligent minds that can restore our Nation to a supreme status of peace, progress, ethnic coherence and common sense, prosperity, strength and pride in less than no time? That Nigeria can have refineries working, 24 hour power supply, abundance of jobs, peace and security, good roads and infrastructures, a maintenance culture, intolerance to indiscipline and so much more, within just 4 years and not in forever as it appears now?
Sovereign National Party (SNP)
A handful of disgruntled youth, in February 2012, right after the insolent cabal-crew, decided to insult all Nigerians by abruptly removing the fuel subsidy as a new year gift, sat down as we all do in the evening, on a bench under the moon and decided that enough was enough, it was time to end this! We decided that it as time to get rid of these ancient, wicked and greedy leaders and enable Nigeria’s bright minds take over the government. In January 2013, they initiated the SNP. A very simple platform, whereby Nigeria’s youth call out to each other, come together, hold hands and gather on a unified front. Many of us never participated in politics, because they told us it was a dirty game, apparently to scare the good ones of us out of it, so they keep on at its helm. It is time to campaign for and serve our own interests, the interests of the Nigerian masses.
The Days of Whining are over, we will complain no more!
Dear you. We are not politicians still and we are not inviting you to be one. More than just a party, we are a monumental tide. We are Nigerians tired, frustrated and ready for change. Who are we? People always ask. Well, we say- look in the mirror. We are you, you are us. We are the faceless masses. Very ordinary multitudes who make up the cheated majority of Nigeria. Smart, able, willing but relegated to impotence by a government that only interests itself and triumphantly prides in reckless mismanagement. Our names are unknown, in Nigerian terms, we are nobody. But we are everybody. We invite you to join our ranks right now and be us, be SNP, own SNP, own your ward, and take the SNP message to your council. Win your council. Tell everyone that it is time to restore our sovereignty. Let us call every living Nigerian to join this cause. Together we will march to register our party. Together we select our best emerging candidates. Together we will rally. Together we will vote and together we will win and reform Nigeria. We will remain together from now on, on the very SNP Town Hall, all being a part of government and decisions that affect our lives. We will own our Nigeria. We will secure a future for those who follow us. We will advance our Nigeria for God and man. We are capable, we have decided and the time is now.
No Nigerian should be more equal than another Nigerian. It is time to claim our heritage from the oligarchs.
It is time for a clean start. Nigeria is budding fresh new leaves.
Be part of history, Join us. Join SNP!
