How Much Can You Sacrifice For Nigeria?

We all place a demand on this country and its leadership, which in our general opinion has scored less than average and to some folks the leadership has even made no score at all, but we fail to recognize that we all make up the enterprise called Nigeria and what the country is today was our general contributions.

Now let me ask: Are you willing to make the ultimate sacrifice for your country's growth?

What you cannot die for, you wont want to live for. Disabuse your minds of the folk tales that has weakened your faith in Nigeria and begin today to look out ways of improving her image, economy, education and people.

Be the answer to the Nigerian Prayers!

Seems we black people does not understand the concept of nationhood. Just following the borders drawn by colonial masters is not all that makes you a nation. God help us to help ourselves

Interesting replies, mostly negative and understandably so. The truth there is nothing an individual sacrifice can do for nigeria now. The change will come when the people rise up again the thiefs destroying our country.

I cannot die for the Nigeria of today; that misruled by goons in Abuja.

However, when, if ever, Nigeria becomes a nation of laws, justice and equity, where life is respected and criminals are punished instead of worshiped, then I can sacrifice myself for my country.

But, Nigeria is still a place where criminals and murderers are praised, where wickedness and injustice are excused, and where the life of the other is of little relevance. I can never sacrifice my life for such an evil contraption - Nigeria in it's present form!

All I can do is work for change, any positive change will do!

It baffles me whenever i see/hear Nigerians being pessimistic about their own country. No matter how bad Nigeria is, it is the only country we have and therefore should be proud of. Discerning members of this forum will agree with me that whenever there is a post/Topic for discussion, majority of the comments one sees here are pessimistic, anti progressive and unwholesome. When there is a problem and everybody believes there is a problem the best thing to do is to look at the cause(s) of the problem and then proffer solution(s) to the problem rather than beginning to curse and lose confidence in the entire system.

U.S. (which is always the reference point/haven when it comes to issues of progress and excellence) would not have been what it is today if its citizens' approach issues of national interest in the same manner we Nigerians do. We must as a matter of urgency learn to make constructive criticisms devoid of sentiments and ethnic/sectional/religious bias. For discerning Nigerian there are only two divisions/interests in this country i.e. The microscopic few (a composition of the various ethnic groups/sections/religions in the country) who pilot the affairs of this country and misuse our resources for their own selfish gains and on the other hand The masses who are always at the receiving end of the misdeeds of the former. We should learn to collectively rise up against injustice, engage in constructive criticisms and propose viable solutions to problems.

Nigeria must be made a better place for all of us, that is uncompromisable.

It's a pity i dont know how to/where to reply individual posts on NL being nu here, i would have had a personal remark for each poster on this thread.

I was counting 2tru to c how many even had empathy for their country and their numba is so few? God! what happened to us? what happened 2 9jerians?

Failed leadership - yes. failed economy- yes. failed society- yes. failed education- yes, count on, u can count on. but when u are done please ask ursef who is responsible for that? who did not dare to ask his teacher to come to class when he was in school and took joy at the failure of lecturers to perform? who blocked teachers for grades? who sorted d policeman to get away with his incomplete papers and still left the papers incomplete planing 2 keep sorting? who litters d streets with refuse? who hods fuel? who hikes prices suddenly cos theres rush? who suddenly thanks God that his townman is in pawa secretly hoping that townsman loots and extends a portion to him? --ask ursef genuinely and tell me who has been the problem with 9jeria?

I take it that u do not know where to begin changing things that's d reason u r shying away from answering +ive to the question. so this where 2 start - YOU! sacrifice ur time to get ur papers right. sacrifice ur time @ that check point not giving a dime until they get tired of ur company. sacrifice a word of prayer for 9jeria each day. sacrifice the pleasure of abusing ur leaders and country and swallow those words when they rise up ur throat. sacrifice ur time to teach a child the right way to go. then the next big thing is dare to find a leader in any election worth ur vote, get others to support him, vote and get ur neighbour to vote. and dare to ensure ur vote at least counts in UR WARD!

pretty easy tins to do 4 ur country, right?

so there, run along and do just that in the next few days and see if UR 9jiria wont be better than it is now! remember 9jeria does not trit us all d same way, u can change how 9jiria trits u.

so long

To sacrifice for a good cause is desirable but with the way things are going on in 9ja, 'siddon look' would be fair enough. Just imagine laying down your life for 9ja and leaving behind people like Aaondokaa and most of the members of the recently dissolved FEC, what do you think such sacrifice would achieve?

Take Lagos for example, the governor has been able to prove it to all Nigerians that purposeful, honest, committed governance was still possible afterall. I am not a politician and i'm not sympathetic to any political party but i can tell you categorically and with pride that i can DIE for the Lagos of Governor Fashola.

Yeah right. Must of us in Lagos can die like that but when u extend it to the almajiris, they just don't want it. They don't want civilisation. It is being foistered on them their religious xtremism won't allow it. Look at their leaders from the north, the way they talk, the way they take national issues the way they go about things men. This whole fanfaronade will soon end. There is no doubt about it only a fool will nt c that

My life. That's why I live here in Nigeria.

Those who stay out or want to get out are too selfish to sacrifice and are not nation builders . They are one chance carpet baggers whose dream is to reap what they didnt sow.I am sick and tired of listening to their frustrations.

Everybody knows that Nigeria is a failed state and that is because of bad administration, bad leadership. But some of us do brave it and work against the tide and never lose hope .Nigeria will rise again. Others run away to where there is good administration and hide from challenges. This is what I said - and repetition teaches a donkey , I will say it again untill you get it. Right?

dear nairalanders

we need to keep record of posts on this thread, why?

every poster who self confesses their lack of interest in making any kind of sacrifice

for their country have no right to criticize those in government for not making

such sacrifices either.

If Yardua and his kitchen cabinet refused to make the required sacrifice for their country by

giving up power to help the nation move forward how do we know the ones with unpatriotic

comments here wouldn't  have done the same.

In fact those in government could be said to be better off for at least offering themselves for

public service.

One is tempted to think we followers are perhaps the most unpatriotic.

we defile our leaders, call them names and laugh at our country, but what have we as individuals

done to help our country; yet we say things like "not a thread of my hair","sacrifice ke, God forbid" and "small sha"

this poster is not in anyway any less guilty of these accusations, but lets face the fact, we are just

as bad as our leaders and there really are very few Nigerians who would out of their own free will make a sacrifice for their

country,

Very few indeed.

How much has Nigeria sacrificed for me?. When JFK admonished Americans to ''THink not what your country can do for you but think what you can do for your country'' it was clear to all Americans that what your country should do for you is GIVEN, must be done and are being done. It was all about responsible governance/government.

Government/governed are like father and child. A responsible father has some inviolable responsibilities towards the child. It is given, it is a number of musts and such father will have moral/spiritual right to demand for payback from such child moreover, in most cases, that child will assume the responsibility of giving back naturally without being prompted. He would be willing to give all, to even die for the father.

So let's ask Mr Nigeria, how much have you given to your children, how responsible have you been, have you ever met up with your basic responsilities?

I am of the firm opinion that Nigeria's problem is that of bad leadership pure and simple. An ordinary Nigerian is very hardworking, entreprising and faithful. With fairly good and purposeful leadership Nigeria will go places.

Give Nigerians the basics - electricity, potable water, good roads, education, security etc and see what will happen.

Take Lagos for example, the governor has been able to prove it to all Nigerians that purposeful, honest, committed governance was still possible afterall. I am not a politician and i'm not sympathetic to any political party but i can tell you categorically and with pride that i can DIE for the Lagos of Governor Fashola.

I am also of the strong conviction that rid Nigeria of the comedians and jokers occupying government houses from Aso Rock to others across the states, replace them with people of about same integrity, passion and purpose as Babatunde Fashola of Lagos and in six months, Nigerians would naturally be willing to die for Nigeria.

Right now, as for me and my house, God forbid bad thing  o, we no go fit die for Nigeria o, CHIKENA

In all honesty and all jokes/anger aside, I think that most of us would not mind sacrificing for our country, the problem is and read cafefully,  would it be valued? There is absolutely no point in giving ones life for an unjust cause or at no benefit. Then your not brave, but no matter how well intention, pardon, but silly and ignorant to the facts. The hardships and failed promises that we all have had to endure is not stimulating to say the least. The average Nigerian whether living in Nigeria or abroad, indirectly sacrifices. So when the little sacrifice is not helping, what would be the point in giving the ultimate, being ones life. I honestly believe that a time will come when we Nigerians, no matter religion and ethnic background will realise the true potential we have and no longer accept mediocrity I'msure that time will come, why because we are becoming exposed to what we should have instead of being fooled that we are fortunate. As many brothers and sisters travel abroad, see other societies, gain information that the new tech has provided us, we will slowly see a change. For those who don'tbelieve, I simply ask you to see the election of Obama as proof. Martin Luther King died more than 40 years ago and just over 45 years ago,  Blacks/negros were confirmed in the US Constitition as being 100 % human ( crazy I know, but its true, they were regarded 3/5 human). I know this as part of my roots are american. If you had asked the average American say 10 years ago if it was possibe they would have said no, even a year ago and now the US has a black president. So change is inevitable, because history has shown the resilience of the human spiirit to not waiver. I pray I see that day, then YES INDEED I will offer the maximum offer if need be. Sorry for the long post my proud brothers and beautiful sisters, stay loved and blessed.
