The tragedy of a nation locked in perpetual emancipation gridlock, economic stagnation and developmental uncertainty (while the entire world consolidates its technological breakthrough, moving on into a new jet speed of higher height of advancement) is in focus in United Kingdom. Nigerians and friends of Nigeria will converge to periscope Nigeria and its non-existing opposition parties who are supposed to create checks and balances to give our nation robust governance.
Tragedy, trepidation, uncertainty inconsistency, waywardness and jungle governance: These are the keywords dotting the hallmarks of Nigeria’s story under the present ruling party. Can the nation change the tide for the better for one of the most vibrant nations of the world, currently in a wilderness of uncertainty?. Weep not Nigerians, get engaged in another public conference taking place on Wednesday in London.
BEN Television, The Black Community Television station in the United Kingdom has convened an empowering forum to look into why Nigeria has got no workable opposition party in place. As Nigeria parades itself as the World’s most prodigal nation, the question continued to beg for a right answer: Is there a future for unprivileged Nigerians? The solution to Nigeria’s future is at your fingertips as the conference is organised to find answers to many of the questions comes up on Wednesday December 13 at the popular British Parliament’s Portcullis House in Central London.
Come over and have a share of a debate session in which many British Parliamentarians and Eminent Nigerians are engaged to proffer a possible working opposition that will turn the tide for a Nigeria’s fruitful future. It will happen, be part of the force that will grab back the fortune of begging World best asset and bread basket called Nigeria?
Is Nigeria currently under a spell of developmental hold-up with no solution to her numerous political, economic and social strangulations, just as obvious in her current state of affairs?
This and many other questions are the main focus of a major debate coming up this Wednesday as men and women of high stature and integrity rub minds this Wednesday in Central London.
With the ruling People’s Democratic Party(PDP) wielding a-one party-state power and effective opposition parties that are supposed to be a driving force force checks and balances currently non-existent, there seems to be a bleak future for the nation.
With holding the batons of power and exchanging such batons in an in-house pantomime-like stupor, Nigeria remains on the edge in the crave for developmental moves with more than 70 percent of the citizen living below the povertyline. There is indeed a problem with uncertainty staring in the face of the nation and her future generations.
Thirteen years on, there is no voice of a formidable opposition, making the ruling party more invincible despite its catalogue of misdeeds.
The Executive level of the government remains a shadow of a decent corporate establishment, never ever well coordinated. Questions and many questions unasked as Nigerians bite their nails in consternation.
Is there any possibility of a formidable party to challenge the PDP one party state and grab power for a more fruitful future of our nation, come 2015? Can positive minded Nigerians ever deliver an alternative progressive policies against the ruling party’s policies of self -service and explore the apathy of groaning and helpless society rekindling a new light of hope?
Mr Tunde Alabi of Ben Television, who on behalf of the organization has the motion for the interactive conference said that only wat forward for our nation is engagement and not absolving with all cultivating the will move the nation forward.
