The Nigerian Proclamation/Why do we need a government

The Nigerian Pledge

I pledge to Nigeria my country
To be faithful, loyal, and honest
To serve Nigeria with all my st

To defend her unity
And uphold her honor and glory

So help me God

In recent history, Nigerians have been overwhelmingly betrayed by those charged with addressing their needs. Instead of serving the people, some elected officials have served themselves to the detriment of the masses. The result is a nation lacking adequate infrastructure, organization and security

The ineffectiveness of Nigerian Leaders indicates a lack of accountability to the constituents. Nigerians are no longer relevant to the leaders, thus, leaders do not feel responsible to them.


in posting this up... I thought about what to write today. I was going to write on "Why do we need a government" but I find that I dont have the desire to do so at this time... and that's partly because I dont think Im that well informed on the topic... but really WHY DO WE NEED A GOVERNMENT. I thought to myself, the private sector seems to be able to take care of things but then I figured if you put them in power, they'd be just as useless.Then I thought about the word "useless"... if really I should be using that word. I shared my thought with a friend who stated "well u need to put into perspective that the people we call government are the same people running the private sector. they r just using the government to enrich their private sector business"

Nce blog you have here. Dont think have ever seen you on mine. Great stuff. Please give me a shout when next you update. God bless

btw: nice post although I think Yaradua has noted the flaws in the process where he emerged and I think he has promised to address this. I have faith.
