The Ants Go Marching On

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall
All the king’s horses and all the King’s men
Couldn’t put Humpty Dumpty together again
they said that humpty was crying like a baby too

History hopefully would remember Humpty Dumpty Not as a broken man but as a man of honor that conceded defeat and granted the Nation a peaceful democratic transition.

Enough about Humpty Dumpty .Let us for a second concentrate on history as we have been given a front row seat to its unveiling. My generation has discovered that: “Young people need to vote. They need to get out there. Every vote counts. Educate yourself too. Don’t just vote. Know what you’re voting for, and stand by that”.

This has to be the greatest lesson learnt from this ‘Jega-d’ experience. To be honest I felt deep pain when I saw the election results but as I closed my eyes it felt like nothing changed at all, I won the election I did not lose.

“How is it possible?” you might ask. The sins of Humpty Dumpty the father have given the gift of life to us the sons. “You see the problem with being a bully is that on the flipside of that particular coin, you’ll find the imprint of Change” .The results are in and now the World has taken note of our existence and the strength that is our voice, and our belief in a greater Nation and Existence. We know that in the hearts of the giants the well being of the little people is hardly considered as they battle for dominance. For this reason we come together and like every strong army we were united over a common goal and the impossible has now been accomplished.

The future is firmly in the hands of Nigerians, we will now go about recovering the things that we have lost. We have the chance to make real our visions and we can only pray that the new leadership will also have great dreams for us. They must not decide to keep our power for themselves, and they must understand that we will never be the same again. We will speak out and the rest of the World will know that Nigerians have spoken and decided.

 “The victor is not victorious if the vanquished does not consider himself so”, Humpty Dumpty has acknowledged this and so the winds of power have shifted. Long Live Nigeria!!!
