The Intro…..
I have so much on my mind yet so little to blog about. I am guilty of reading other blogs rather that writing in mine, but I have no apologies. I guess I’m still young at this blogging thing but I promise to do my utmost henceforth. Now back to today’s entry.

The Entry
I have often pondered about Nigeria's future, and what the tide will bring come 2007. We all know that a change of power usually leads to Violence, Riots, Kidnap, Political rallies, Debates, manifestos and all-what-nots, but the most mind boggling thing is the big Question: “Who will be our next president?” Besides watching the progress to the elections 2007 on local TV and forming my own opinion about who the likely President may be, I've asked people around me the question time and again, and the answers I get vary from “Dunno”, “Don't care anyhow”, “Na them know”, and some other lousy answers which make me wonder if we really care about our country's leadership? Have the future leaders of Nigeria lost all care?

Now, don’t get me wrong. There are also the other1/2 who are interested in the “So who’s next?” They have come up with names like:
Donald Duke, Dr. Peter Odili, Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu, I.B.B, Pastor Chris Okotie, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai, Professor Jerry Gana, Professor Pat Utomi, Abubakar Atiku, Dora Akunyili, etc. Mind you, some people name candidates according to their geo-political zones rather on their conviction that he/she will do a good job!

I can’t tell whether the next President is even on this list, or if he (that’s the one thing that’s definite!) has come out to declare his intentions even, but I hope and pray that our next leader will be one who will conscientiously try to move Nigeria ahead and appoint like minded people in his cabinet regardless of gender, tribe or religion.


I got this in a mail I received today and it’s going to be The Outro….
“Never doubt that a group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.” - Margaret Mead

P.S
Do tell me what you think about who the next Pres will be. I appreciate feedbacks!

Don't react to this in a bad way. I do not care. It just shouldn't be based on tribe but credibility.

@ Nosa: Wow, so you belong to the "Dont care anyhow" category eh Nosa? And I was hoping you'd be less carefree! *sniffles* Anyhow as long as you believe in credibility, that's a good start, i'm sure!

Meanwhile, on a Red Note: We lost to the goners(I prefer to call em that;-)! Hmm I have not had a moments rest since then o!

Politics is not something that particularly intrests me, most presidents are muppets and don't make decisions themselves. That's why I like dictatorship, it's a true test of leadership because there is no Senate or any crap like that.I have lots of ARSEnal friends and they don't make life easy. About the guset book stuff, got to www (dot)bravenet(dot)com. Click on the guestbook stuff and there are instructions for you to follow.
