Mandela’s Message To Nigerian Leaders

“YOU know I am not very happy with Nigeria. I have made that very clear on many occasions. Yes, Nigeria stood by us more than any nation, but you let yourselves down, and Africa and the black race very badly. Your leaders have no respect for their people. They believe that their personal interests are the interests of the people. They take people’s resources and turn it into personal wealth. There is a level of poverty in Nigeria that should be unacceptable. I cannot understand why Nigerians are not more angry than they are.

“What do young Nigerians think about your leaders and their country and Africa? Do you teach them history? Do you have lessons on how your past leaders stood by us and gave us large amounts of money? You know I hear from Angolans and Mozambicans and Zimbabweans how your people opened their hearts and their homes to them. I was in prison then, but we know how your leaders punished western companies who supported Apartheid.

“What about the corruption and the crimes? Your elections are like wars. Now we hear that you cannot be president in Nigeria unless you are Muslim or Christian. Some people tell me your country may break up. Please don’t let it happen.

“Let me tell you what I think you need to do. You should encourage leaders to emerge who will not confuse public office with sources of making personal wealth. Corrupt people do not make good leaders. Then you have to spend a lot of your resources for education.

Educate children of the poor, so that they can get out of poverty. Poverty does not breed confidence. Only confident people can bring changes. Poor, uneducated people can also bring change, but it will be hijacked by the educated and the wealthy...give young Nigerians good education. Teach them the value of hard work and sacrifice, and discourage them from crimes which are destroying your image as a good people.”

(Excerpts taken from a 2007 interview with Mandela conducted by Dr Hakeem Baba-Ahmed).

can you see a man loved soso much, i cry for my country Nigeria.

Heroes don't live their lives but they live for others to live.Mandela,a mentor,whose life,believe,principles,faith and philosophy has shaped me,helped me overcome hard-times and challenges even in the face of critics of my opinion and philosophy.A man whose magnitude of His tolerance,trust,love and spirit of forgiveness became a magnificent and solid foundation for reconciliation of races.GOD BLESS MADIBA

Can Nigeria leader be treated this way ? Mandela's death has brought a new dimension into what it takes to be a good leader. It shows the reward of selfless service to humanity,stake once life to set his people free from slavery and oppressed dictator !

The man was escorted all his life. Escorted as a prisoner, escorted as a president, now escorted to his grave even by some who thot that that they held him captive whilst alive. Certainly, angels will escort him again. Great Madiba. Linda oya
