Merry Christmas Nigeria!
It’s Christmas again!
Merry Christmas Nigeria and Nigerians!
It’s another Christmas and my heart warm greetings to Nigerians all over the world. We have endured another long and tiring year so far. We have seen some breakthroughs this year for a few of our brothers, sisters and neighbours. We have also seen the failures that continue to impede the progress of many of us and thereby depriving us of that happiness that we sought.
Many of the circumstances that steer our lives have remained beyond our control. It will be like that for some time to come because of the ugly political landscape where everyone is scooping for “self”. One thing is sure and very predictive-a CHANGE will come to Nigeria soon. It will be inexplicable but it will usher in a new dawn of prosperity. It will happen!
As we approach 2009 many of us are keeping the dreams and hopes alive. That is the best way to go about it. Keeping it alive!
We cannot afford to give up at any stage of our lives. Where there is life, there is hope. Where there is hope, there will be a way. Let us not forget to make plans even though we live in a very nasty society where plans and dreams have been crushed without mercy. Our plans are actually the things that give us hope. That is the way it works. The CHANGE to come will help us to realise our plans-the dreams.
This is my short Christmas message of hope and support because I know what it is to live in Nigeria when you are struggling against all the odds that are in your way.
Dreams do come true. Believe in yourself and your abilities. Merry Christmas once again!
