His Excellency, GoodLuck Ebele Jonathan and his mission for peace is more explanatory and advisable as follows. To be prepared for war is one of the most effective means of preserving peace.
Past Military Government failed the nation. Their concerned was to intimate the masses and steal the nation wealth for their selfish interest. But permit me to exclude the follow two men of Great honour.
1. General Yakubu Gowon. He fought and won peace and unity for the country.
2. General Abdusalam Abubakar came with a mission of 9 months agenda to dismantle the Military from Governance. He accomplished his mission and handed over to a Democratically Elected Civilian Government within 9 months.
The first of its kind in Nigeria. We must find time to stop and thank these people who made good difference in our lives.
Lord save us! Lord grant us success!! Psalm 118:25
The rest Military Government impoverished not only the civilians but the military in terms of modern up to date weapons of war. What a shame! They left an empty Giant of Africa that lacks what it takes to maintain and sustain peace .
They used their ill-gotten wealth to establish universities, farms, industries, and set up crude oil importation cartel, etc.
Today Nigeria is being disgraced by Boko Haram insurgence in the North.
AK47 riffles should be given to mobile police force while the more sophisticated riffles should be given to the Officers and Men of the Army, Navy and Air force. Enough money should annually be budgeted to the Ministry of Defence to acquire modern up to date weapons of war for any emergency for the defence of Nigeria territory.
More so, all 10 years old weapons in our amoury should be sold to fellow African and Asia countries who might need then.
The money realized from the sales should be added to it to acquire the most modern weapons of war.
No wonder why our Great Nationalist, Rt. Hon Dr Namdi Azikwe- the Owelle of Onitsha once said that “a worst Civilian Government is better than Military Government.
Based on that, I quote “Transformation occurs only when existing solution, assumed truth and past decision are exposed as unrealistic and self defeating”. This above all “to you self be truthful”.
His Excellency President GoodLuck Jonathan once said that the Military is under-funded as far back as 20 years ago. It is now a challenge to the President to make the Military well equipped for any situation that may occur, by improving with determination, the past weakness of the Military Government and believing that. “Real difficulties can be overcome. It is the imaginary one that are unconquerable”. There is no chance, no obstruction, no fault that can circumvent or hinder the firm resolve of a determined soul.
An idea like a ghost, must be spoken to a little before it will explain itself. The Lord has shown all his people what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to work humbly with your God Mic. 6: 8.
To give real service, you must add something that can not be bought or measure with money, and that is sincerity and integrity.
The part 3 of the article is on the way. It will be prophetic and analyze qualitatively in the following order (a)Retired Civil Servants who have served creditably well from Thirty years and above (b) Successful Credible Business Men who made their money outside Politics (c) Real Politicians, who the next Governor will be. But let us bear in mind that the present Governor must surely have a say or rather use his power of incumbency to support whosoever will continue with the solid structures he already laid down.
May God give us Knowledge and Wisdom to always do what is right and good for the State and the Country.
God bless His Excellency Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan, God bless Delta State, God bless Nigeria. Jesus power! Power!!
