I HAVE NOT GIVEN UP ON NIGERIA (maybe you have given up)–john idumange

“I have not given up on Nigeria (maybe you have given up). The challenges we face as a nation are the litmus test of our collective resolve to live together. Invariably, as we walk on the thorny path to nationhood, though at a snail speed, I am confident that the centripetal forces are beginning to overwhelm those forces that threaten to tear us apart. We shall remain united, resolved and committed to solve our common problems with even greater vigour. When Civil Society Organizations work in synergy with government to protect human rights, strengthen government institutions, alleviate poverty, combat corruption and promote an open government, the benefits will far outweigh the sacrifices.”
