Political Analyst, Mr. Olawole Olakunle, has lamented the fact that Nigeria lies in utter ruins as against the once promising giant of Africa that the world looked up to. In a statement he issued on Monday in Abuja, the analyst noted that “although, I won’t ask how we got here, but it is important to note that at one point in time, the world touted us as an amazon heading to lofty heights. “Seeing Nigeria with its vast mineral resources, magnanimous workforce, a booming agricultural sector and with the discovery of black diamond (crude) we became the spectacle the world beheld. “Unfortunately, we are now only a parody of such lofty heights, we wallow in abject poverty and we are currently classified among the third world countries.” Mr. Olakunle who doubles as a Media Practitioner, hinted that Nigeria started failing as a nation since power shifted hands from the colonial masters to our leaders. “When Nigeria’s motion for independence was moved by Anthony Enahoro, the unified aim was to dislodge the common enemy, the British, from the helm of affairs of this nation. “Yet, barely 56 years after independence we have failed as a nation to dislodge the enemy within eating up the glory of this great nation.”He said. The Analyst, however, expressed hope in the nearest future, stating that there is a new dawn in the political geography of this great nation. “For those who follow the political affairs of this nation valiantly, the microscopic few whose insight can be likened to that of a telescope, it is worthy of note that the political class of 1960 is fading away with high alacrity. “The mechanism of a political shift is currently in play, political power would change hands from the current elite structure to a different, much younger and globally educated local crop of young people. “New alliance would surge, there would be massive reduction in the level of gullibility, citizens would be mentally alert and ready to challenge any anti-people policy, new model of education would be formulated, sand our culture would take centre stage. “We would begin the journey to nationhood while retracing our steps back to where the class of 1960 lost track and Nigeria would be great again. He said. He urged the Nigerian Youths to mobilise, adding, Dr. Alinsky, in his book “Rules for Radicals” advice young people to “learn a lesson! Go home, organise, build power and at the next convention, be the delegates”
