It was a very common instruction from the headmaster: tell your parents to give you money by next Monday as the governor has asked us to request for more donations. Yes, the governor of Imo State, Sam Mbakwe, has sent notes to all citizens to send him money to build an airport. Someone shared a partial list of the donors. I knew that I contributed 25 kobo. Someone commented on the post: “I contributed as well. Millions across the East contributed. School children – nursery, primary and secondary students contributed.”
In my Platform presentation, I asked this question: “How many of you will contribute money and send it to a current governor in Nigeria?” Interestingly, President Buhari found those men corrupt, as he took them out via a coup. Now, see what we have where corruption is now Article xx in the constitution!
Do not lose hope in Nigeria – this land has a promise. It takes a man who has reached the highest mountain to appreciate the lowest valley.
The kindness and the generosity of the Nigerian people remain unbounded. But they need to believe and trust you. On that list, country clubs raised money for the government. Today, those clubs assemble mainly to plot how to win contracts. The glory will return – #believe.
