I commiserate with every Nigerian who dreamed of watching our beloved SUPER Eagles win a game in the World Cup competition.
My heart bleeds as I reflect on all our matches especially against South Korea. My sadness knows no bounds. My 'tears' have stopped flowing.
I was driving through Lekki (Lagos, Nigeria) today & my attention was drawn to the many terrible roads and there was a particular one that was flooded with thick, murky, muddy water. The street looked like a slum, but it had the most beautiful houses on it.
My mind immediately went to the Super Eagles: great individual talent but for lack of planning, investment and adequate preparation, we play like an unskilled team.
So you see, it's the same problem whose symptoms we see everyday in huge generators, overhead water and diesel tanks.
Beautiful lampshades with no light.
Beautiful taps with no flowing water.
Hugely talented players without wins.
Roads without drainage.
Police without security.
Judges without justice.
Hospitals without health care.
Graduates without education.
Businesses without profit.
Workmen without skill.
Can't we see?
It's the same problem! It will require the same solution!
Our nation is calling for Leadership required at all levels.
People who will take responsibility to build & transform their area of gifting until the entire nation is fixed.
Which aspect of Nigeria has God called YOU to transform?
Have YOU started transforming it yet?
Who are your closest friends?
Which aspect of Nigeria has God called them to transform?
Have they started transforming it yet?
Nigeria is bleeding and crying for leaders to emerge out of the shadows and the sidelines of the spectators and commentators.
We need players on the field of leadership.
It's already half time and we are a few goals down but the game is not over!
We need to substitute the Rulers on the field with LEADERS on the bench.
Get off the bench & start warming up.
It's time to Arise and Shine!
It's time to deliver the future.
You can. You must. You will.
