The Pragmatics of Real Change
The Pragmatics of real CHANGE aspires to provide answers to these questions and provide suggestions as to how we can at least get on this path to the ‘promised land’.
Since the late sage Obafemi Awolowo wrote his Path to Nigerian Freedom or even before, Nigerians have yearned for a better country and many politicians have promised to take Nigeria to the promised land. In 2015, the bandwagon of populism was tagged CHANGE. Notwithstanding the fact that it was not different in the nature of the promises or the way it was sold, many Nigerians followed the wagon especially youths. Many have since voiced their regrets about that decision to believe in the possibility of Nigeria achieving its massive potential via that vehicle. How have we as a country been eluded of a true team of leaders who are bent on putting us on this path to freedom? Is the CHANGE from this Nigeria to a better one so elusive that we cannot seem to get on that path after 57 years of independence? Even after the late sage Chinua Achebe wrote the trouble with Nigeria identifying what the trouble is, why have we not been able to end these troubles? The Pragmatics of real CHANGE aspires to provide answers to these questions and provide suggestions as to how we can at least get on this path to the ‘promised land’.
