Power and Inner strength in the midst of Dysfunctional Leadership
To be a citizen of our beloved country takes a lot of inner strength and power to be content and stay happy. Most of us tend to blame the system for not making it conducive for us to function. Let us remove the scale from our eyes and look deep within the recesses of our soul to identify our inner and unlimited power. The expression of power we need to embrace is the “Power Within”. What is that? To understand we have the power inside of us to change our situation and circumstance through positive thinking. If we look at our current situation it is discouraging. Maina was wanted for corruption in the Johnathan administration by EFCC. This is as a result of a N2.7 pension fraud. In the current Buhari Administration, he was appointed and promoted. President Buhari has not issued a statement to address us Nigerians on how this affects his anti-corruption crusade.
I understand corruption is a way of life in Nigeria…even in Africa as a continent. But there are still people who thrive and survive and make it in this situation (let us eliminate the use of money ritual and occultism). Diamond comes from the roughest rocks on the planet. Coal comes from close to the earth’s core and supplies energy to the global population. There is a reason destiny gave birth to you in this nation. You are special and there is power within you to change your situation in spite of the government’s lackadaisical attitude about its citizens. If we focus on the outer situation and neglect the core of our being which is the most powerful thing on this earth, we are destined to fail no matter where we live. There are some people who run away from their destiny and relocate to another country only to be ridden with poverty but too ashamed to come back and admit their failures.
Unleash your Power Within…
You know the secret? What we need to do is to embrace the hardship in Nigeria, become better people and build our capacity to change our country. How many of us are embracing the Not too young to run campaign especially with the constitutional amendment addressing independent candidacy? How many of us want to run for president, Senate, House of Representative, Governor or even Local Government Chairman? Are we not tired of complaining? Let’s change and harness our inner power and transform Nigeria!!!! Remember, we need to be the change we want to see in our nation.
