Its election time again, Time to Take a stand – Asimu Momoh

It is election time again and we will be hearing of beating and killing of people. Why would someone maim because he/she wants to rule. Why would someone that says he wants to serve the people bribe the people that he wants to serve. Why should we the people collect money from someone applying to serve us. My people have resorted to praying and cursing politicians again. We have started hoping that the person who is good will be elected. Your prayers will not be answered. Prayers without action is nothing.

I hear young people complaining that since Shagari tenure that they have been told that they are the leaders of tomorrow. Sit there and hope the leadership gets to you. You will wait forever. When old men and women hold meetings both in the day and night, young people are busy minding their own business and pursuing things that are not important. When the old ones are planning all night long how they can occupy positions of authority, the young ones are either sleeping, partying or fooling around. We as young people must plan, strategize, prepare and go into action to actualize our dreams. Nobody will allow us to take it easily. You think you are comfortable and do not care. Don’t worry, the thugs and thieves created by the politicians are everywhere taking a bound of flesh from everyone.

You must be the change you want to see. You must be involved, We must start to act differently. We must know our environment, our neigbours, interact with them and form or belong to a pressure group. None of these political parties today are for our common interests. I laugh when I hear people taking sides with some political parties and giving them powers that they do not have. We must move away from these corrupt parties and form our own movement where everyone must be equal and contributes equally.

It is not going to be an easy battle but it must be a long term strategy that will make us have the polity we crave for. We do not have the time now to make a change that will be significant in 2015 but we must start now while 2019 should be our goal. Lets hold meetings in our wards, LGA, states and then come together and form a big and national movement that truly believe in justice, equity and fairness. All for the common good of all. Evil thrives where good people do nothing.
