Etcetera writes;the Destiny of Nigeria is in our hands!

You're probably wondering why Etcetera has now shifted focus to writing political articles or articles about Nigeria as opposed to celebrity based stories he used to write before? Well you cant really blame him considering the present state of Things in Nigeria at the moment 

Check out his Latest piece below..,

 "There are those of us who believe that our lives are predestined and that we should resign ourselves to our lots in life.

Yet the truth is that it is up to each one of us to decide what that destiny will be.

While each of us is born with a life purpose, it is up to us whether or not we will say yes to fulfil it.

And just like when we choose what to eat, who to keep company with, and whether to turn right or left when we leave our home every day, choosing to say yes to your destiny is a decision that can only be realised when you take action to make that choice a reality.

Whether you believe it is your destiny to be a parent, an adventurer, an artist, a pioneer, or a spiritual guru, saying yes to your destiny is only the first step. While manifesting your destiny starts with knowing what you want and believing you can attain your goals, there are then the actions that must be taken and the decisions to be made before your destiny can truly happen.

When you take responsibility for fulfilling your destiny and begin acting with the intention of doing so, you not only take fate into your own hands, but also you become the hands of your own fate. Doors inevitably open for you to step through, and every choice you make can be a creative act toward realising your goals and dreams.

You begin to follow your instincts and intuition, recognise opportunities when they are presented to you, and seize those golden moments.

You also begin to recognise the decisions that may not serve this greater picture and push them aside.

Remembering that the decision to fulfil your destiny is always a choice can be empowering.

Knowing you are fulfilling your destiny because you want to, rather than because you have to, can make a huge difference.

When you are free from obligation, obstacles in your way become challenges to be overcome, and the journey becomes an adventure rather than the obligatory steps you are being forced to take.

Your destiny may be waiting for you, but whether or not you meet your destiny is up to you. Your fate is in your hands.

Nigeria will not get to the promised land if everyone of us continues to sit and wait for the government to do everything for us.

It is our country after all and it is up to every single one of us to decide what becomes of the country. We all must play our part and save this nation by reviewing our lives, and whatever it is we are doing to the detriment of the nation should be stopped henceforth.

Buhari cannot do it all alone. He cannot be everywhere at the same time. He cannot be everyone to make sure the laws are obeyed. He cannot address the wrongs in our homes and compounds; Buhari is not the exam official collecting bribes from students in order for them to check their results.

He is not the bus conductor who increases the bus fare after seeing so many commuters at the bus stop.

He is not the filling station owner who sees exploitation of the people as the norm.

Buhari is not those police officers manning illegal road blocks to extort money from innocent Nigerians.

Yes, he is the president and has his own role to play, but we can make it easier for him by being law abiding and contributing our individual quota to the development of the country.

I can bet that a lot of the people reading this now don’t know who their local government chairman and councillor are or their role in governance.

In the case of the little girl that was taken from Bayelsa and forced into marriage in Kano, I was shocked that the Inspector General of Police was waiting for permission to do his job. I guess he is waiting for orders to stop the Fulani herdsmen that have been causing havoc all over the country.

Whatever seems to be the destiny of this country of ours now can be changed for the better if we all oversee our individual constituencies efficiently; we will build a nation that will be the envy of other nations".

Hmmm food for thought! The destiny of Nigeria is Indeed in our hands!
