2011 New Year New beginnings

Happy New Year folks, first of all i just want to say i do not believe in new year resolutions, i mean if you want to be a better person you make up your mind everyday to do something, push yourself further..but its always good to have your goals spelt out. i mean in 2010 i set out to achieve a lot of my goals and i was not thoroughly dissapointed, fine i did not make a million dollars or lose 20 pounds but i set the ball rolling and even surpassed most of my goals. Thank God for that because He made it possible.

now lets look at 2011, this is a year that i personally believe so many changes will be evident in the world, for starters we will get to find out if Michelle Obama is truly pregnant as rumors have truly been circulating and also Ghana will prove that they truly will use their new found wealth (oil) for the good of their nation and not to its detriment as nigeria did (the president's words not mine) but to be honest we all know its easier to mouth off they say power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely so we will see, but for Nigeria we will get to see if the most populous black nation in the world can conduct a free and fair election and elect a truly democratic president.

before you all label me some kind of prophet, i have no idea what will happen in 2011, i have been reading with utmost disbelief at some of the so called predictions of 2011 by some of these prophets, some say that Buhari will win the elections while some have said Goodluck will win personally let whosoever that will correct the damn power supply in this country be the president i dont care if we have to import some japaneese citizen and nationalize him to run for elections i have lost count of how much i spend on petrol for my generator i will vote a 21 year old transvesite who does not speak a word of ibo to be president so long as he /she can provide basic infrastructure for us ,i mean lets face it whats the use having your tribe produce a president if nothing else changes.

which brings me back to the issue of the bombings in Jos and Abuja and the burning down of churches in Maiduguri, i never believed Nigeria would get this bad, this all started from kidnapping to burning up of oil wells now to bombings and killing innocent citizens, WTF is going on?who allowed the importation of this weapons , when did Nigeria become alfghanistan, whats next for this people. Nigeria has always been called a lot of things but terrorist nation was the last adjective i expected to be in that mix, i thought deep down we loved each other too much to destroy innocent lives like this but i guess i was wrong.

so yeah in 2011 if you expected a comedic post about boy and girl relationships, or how some skinny thief tried to dupe me out of money that i did not have in 2010, or expected a post on how best to convert your boyfriend into your husband you were wrong, this is the year they will test us to the limit, this is the year we will show this old politicians that their time is up, this is the year we will stand together as one and show the world that truly Nigeria will not fall, we will fight for our right to vote, we will fight for our votes to count and we will fight for our elected officials to represent us not their fat bank accounts, this year nigerians will rise and tell naysayers that we can come together and not only be the biggest black country in the world but also the greatest.

P.S if i am wrong and i pray not lets not split up abeg i really do not want to have to go for visa interviews to go round the different regions in nigeria i really want to go to Obudu and Kainji this year..ok happy new year folks.
