Nigeria is not a mistake

Many at times, it’s as if the country of our birth is a conception of the renowned Lord Lugard. History tells that he amalgamated the North and the Southern part of the country in 1919. It’s as if he is the creator of Nigeria. But he is not. Great is the creator of the land and greater than the amalgamator and the colonial masters is the purpose of our great country. Even neocolonialism can’t derail the purpose.
Acts17: 26 says “And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation” {KJV}

Nigeria then is not a creation of Lord Lugard’s amalgamation but has always been in God’s mind and still is. In fact, it has been before the foundation of the world. Therefore we must not hold on to the memoirs of the past that we can’t change…we must not also wished that some things never happened – the civil war, military interruptions of civilian rule and election rigging – they have happened in our past and they can’t be corrected and undone. But we will refuse to loose our future because of the circumstances of our past. We will not hold on to the past and loose the future that we can influence. Therefore, because we believe that Nigeria is not even close to a mistake, we will do everything to preserve our unity. Nigeria isn’t Lugard’s creation or idea but God’s creation. His purpose will definitely and surely come to a pass.

Nigeria is alive! Nigeria is not a mistake but a top-notch marvel! It is well with Nigeria and with you.
