2018, was a year with a lot of dark nights: poverty, gross inequality and injustice with lost lives, the dearth of education and decay of our healthcare . Though we survived the Year, but with the fear of what the future holds for us…for our children.
The pages upon which we will write the story that unfolds are blank; will it be one of hope, of peace, of prosperity, of growth of our nation, of NIGERIA emerging from being less than it is, to it being much more ?
That story will be written by us as a nation in the weeks and months to come.
I wish us all a happy new year and fulfilled 2019.
