The political and the socio-economic situations across the world and especially in Africa this Century demands great caution, patience, commitment, faithfulness and due diligence. The current waves of political and social changes sweeping across North Africa and parts of the Middle-East are glaring pointers to the need for both the leaders and the led to get things right and give to the teeming masses their deserved socio-economic boost, based on the combined resources of each nation. Political leaders should not wait for the times of approaching elections or public demonstrations before they start to pretend that they feel and understand the nagging problems of the masses. Elections are around the corners in many places across the globe, when leaders would be judged by the electorates in each nation at the polls.Campaigns are very hot in various places; and as we move on through this year, voters in more prominent nations would be calling the shots as they retain or do away with various administrations/political parties at various tiers of government. Next month,Nigeria, Africa’s most populous nation, would hold General Elections to elect, legislators to the states and national Assemblies, and also elect State Governors and the President. The whole world would focus attention on Nigeria, expecting to see an election that is not only free and fair, but putting into various offices, credible leaders who would deliver positively on their promises to the electorate!Prayers have been on for long.The days of buying of votes, harassment and intimidation of opponents, abuse of offices by the privileges of incumbency, are over! Voters are more educated now and must not sell or mortgage their rights because of temporary pleasures or gifts.The future well-being of the young ones,the unborn, as well as ALL, are of utmost importance.The future stability and progress of Nigeria must not be toyed with nor jeopardized because of selfish gains or ambitions.The law enforcement agencies should do their best to ensure the credibility of the general elections in Nigeria, to install leaders who would move the nation forward.The Electoral Commission must be above-board and transparently honest and fair. All hands must be on deck.That great African from Ghana,the late Dr. J.K Aggrey taught that: ….. Only the best is good enough for Africa. And I dare say that ONLY THE BEST IS GOOD ENOUGH FOR NIGERIA. For Nigeria to continue to give credible leading contribution in Africa and in the world, we must put our house in order. NOW is the right time to give the best to Nigeria;not second best. Nigeria and indeed Africa needs and wants the best from the impending General Elections.GOD is also watching us! MAY IT BE SUCCESSFUL BY THE POWER OF THE ALMIGHTY GOD! AMEN!
