Article: The Imperativeness Of A New National Orientation Paradigm (Part 2)




By Chris Nwaokobia Jnr.

“Today is the moment that makes great feats possible, yesterday is history, the future scores the moment, we must work hard in the NOW such that posterity would say of this generation of Nigerians, when the moment of change came a great band of patriots rose up and took it.”- Prof Chris Nwaokobia Jnr.

Since the March 28 and the April 14, 2015 General Elections our nation has recorded about 23 Trekkers and Bikers,the young and the old alike, traversing the nation, doing unimaginable distances with glee, some in support of Buhari, some pro Goodluck Jonathan for his presumed love for peace ditto the concession of defeat at the polls, and some for peaceful coexistence, unity and progress. In all of this the score is manifest; democracy is the winner and Nigeria the victor. By this Nigerians have said in no uncertain terms that we want to remain together and make our Fatherland great.
