Have I finally got your attention or just about to get you think why on earth I have decided to talk about war, when our dear country, the giant of Africa, is almost on the brink of economic collapse due to the Corona virus which has taken so many lives as well as causing destruction.
It’s about time we realised as the giant of Africa the only thing stopping us is our old ways, which hasn’t brought any form of prosperity but poverty which leads to destruction.
Why do we constantly see each other as enemies of progress by constantly placing religion, culture, traditions and language as the very first barrier.
As for me, I would gladly tell you I am colour-blind and I am a complete Nigerian at every capacity, one who would fight for Nigeria to be first at every level.
At the time our dear country was introduced to fighting against indiscipline, I’m sure many at the time thought they were being punished for offences they did not commit but that was never the case. (WAI) War Against Indiscipline was set in place to help fight indiscipline. Please, understand that a war without peace is aimless.
God bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
God bless Mr President.
Prince Taiwo Thompson,
