I am very sure as you read the title of this post you might probably be reminded of the classic track ''Man in the Mirror'' by the legendary Micheal Jackson blessed memories which was part of my inspiration to write this post and of course a bunch of other realities i experienced in Nigeria and a lot of other people might relate to across Africa.
I took this photo above as part of my tag in relation to this post and it really got me thinking and asking my self questions like what was my purpose in life and what can i do to make a change in Nigeria and the rest of Africa where the problems are peculiar;problems of corruption,greed,bad leadership,wars,starvation,poverty,underdevelopment,and the list goes on.these thoughts and questions got me into a quest for answers and i got into discussions with Nigerians and other African alike.
My discussion started with a group of enthusiastic graduates in the diaspora that just graduated from school with wonderful grades and dreams of changing the world.in the midst of our celebration i asked these question;hope you shall all return home with this quality of certificate and heart to make a difference? and this question opened up a different level of insight into the minds of these enthusiast.some were of the opinion that Nigeria and the problem of corruption is embedded in our culture and would take a lifetime to change,while others were hopeful a change can be made by the new breed of leaders that are been created and they believed they were one of them and others were too furious to take a stand.
