God, Please Give Us Leaders

As I sit here, right here and now, I’m watching the inauguration of the president of the United States of America – Barack Obama. As I watch, my ears are getting hot, and my stomach turning. My heart yearns for a fresh breath of political leadership for Nigeria. My soul and my heart prays for Nigeria – “God, please, give us leaders!”. In the breath that I utter the prayer, I recieve a call from another comrade, he called to tell me that right now he is just calling me to tell me that he is praying that God should give us leaders!

Praying this prayer, I also hear God loud and clear – what are you waiting for? God will not come down to give us a leader, God will not cast his votes with paper, God will not write his name in the clouds. God will do it through you and I, through hands and hearts that are willing to engage themselves in the process of change. If we don’t have good leaders, is because you and I don’t think we deserve it enough. If we live in darkness, it’s because you and I didn’t switch on the light. If we live in the past, it’s because we have mortgaged our futures.

As I write, the words of Barack Obama drop into my ears like from a far distance. “A man whose father 60yrs ago would not have been served in the restuarant in America, today now takes the sacred oath.” {clap} We will get good leaders in Nigeria, when you and I decide to get involved and make things happen. America has done it… interestingly they did it with less than 10million voters. In Nigeria, we will not need more than that, and we will do it. We will do it with our mouths, with our blogs, with our stipends, with our influence, with all that we got, but we, with God’s grace, will do it!

The future is now my friends. The future is here! Deliver the Future! We can, We must, We Will!
