Opinion: Prophecies can solve all Nigeria’s problems in 2014

Funny, as some would like to see it, my second yet topper most reason for not having a New Year Resolution, is the new year prophesies our specially called men of God have formed the habit of regularly dishing out on new year eves, for a couple of years running now.

Those of us priviledged to have read The gods Are Not To Blame or the more recent novel, The New Man, will best appeciate my line of thinking. Both books are written by Nigerian authors.

Why bother myself making resolutions, when what our men of God has proclaimed must surely come to pass? Nigeria as a nation need not waste precious time, money, material and human resources preparing a future which our special preachers have already revealed to us exactly the way their oga on top has shown to them.

I, like most Nigerians, didn’t bother myself with making any New Year Resolutions for 2014. While my first reason for saving myself from the end of year annual ritual of drawing a new pattern of life which often than not, end up mocking me for making needless anti-me promises, my other reason is the one I’ll here share with you.

If you’re outside Nigeria, you may mistake this as just a denomination’s declaration for the year, but it’s not. These are prophesies expected to come to pass within the particular year of course as these special preachers like to add, “we all as a country, fast and pray to avert them.’’

While a few of our countrymen are ready to logically argue with you that some of these prophesies are mere analysis any sensible Nigerian can think out like the one which says that the APC will have serious problems presenting a common candidate for the general elections, we must all applaud the one that says the National Chairman of the PDP, Alhaji Bamanga Tukur will be removed.

For instance, the story recently published by Vanguard newspaper that the PDP is already considering replacing Tukur with Waliki Adamawa, Alhaji Hassan Adamu, clearly shows some of our Nigerian prophets says only what they mean and mean what they say.

If you’re outside Nigeria, you may mistake this as just a denomination’s declaration for the year, but it’s not. These are prophesies expected to come to pass within the particular year of course as these special preachers like to add, “we all as a country, fast and pray to avert them.’’

While we wait for the other prophesies to come to pass, I like to call on our governments at various levels to just sit arms akimbo and watch the nation develop by itself instead of setting up committees or hosting a national conference where people are paid to come and discuss issues meant to better their very own country.

In the other hand, we must all agree that members of APC are strange bedfellows who are only but trying to perfect the saying that in politics, there is no permanent friend or enemy, just permanent interest. As such, the prophecy concerning the Party’s coming candidature crisis is expected.
