So that our democracy can survive
To check these excruciating conditions Nigeria finds herself, the principles of Rule of Law which give dividends of democracy should be duly observed. The parochial nature of the nation’s political culture needs to be corrected. The attitude towards participating in political matters or all governmental issues should be upgraded. Citizens should see public property as theirs and not merely publicowned. The “I don’t care” attitude of the people to political matters must equally stop, while ethnic chauvinism, which has eaten deep into the fabric of the country, should be corrected. A Hausa man should not see his Igbo or Yoruba compatriot as an enemy, but a brother whose co-existence form “One Nigeria”. This will go a long way in fostering unity and discouraging ethnic violence which has consumed so many lives and property.
