“Everyone should be prepared to make sacrifices for the betterment of this nation” – Sound Sultan
Sound Sultan a.k.a Mr Jagbanjatis aired his opinion about what he thinks about Nigeria’s problems and the role of Nigerians in it. In an interview with The Nigerian Entertainment Today, Sound Sultan was asked;
“Most of your songs have been about the situation of the country, which is good. What would you say are the problems facing this country and how do you think we can reform the state of the nation?”
This was what Sound Sultan opined;
“The problems of Nigeria are “Nigerians” -Sound Sultan
We don’t have any other problem other than that, You realize that, whenever we point an accusing finger at the government, it points back at the masses. We have a common enemy, which is the government.
But we fail to realize that we are part of the government. Even if we are not at the reign of power at the moment, one day we will get there. Even the present individuals in government had pointed accusing fingers at one point in their lives.
That’s how the trend continues. The people themselves need to re-evaluate what they stand for, individually. It’s easy to say little drops of water make a mighty ocean, but if every unit takes proper charge and make significant effort towards the betterment of the country, then we will move from this point.
So, if we talk about the situation of the country without the people wanting to be part of the rehabilitation, we won’t succeed nor progress.
The number of people on government is very minute, compared to the masses. Okay, for example, if we are able to fight and conquer this present government and toss the corrupt leaders out of their offices, what’s going to happen when the new one comes in?
That’s is my argument. I am someone that speaks for the masses but the masses are faceless, I might as well be speaking for a thief.
So, I just want individual efforts, everyone should be prepared to make sacrifices for the betterment of this nation. If we can get majority of the people thinking in the right manner, then the country will change.
You will find a man driving against traffic insulting another driver that is plying the right route. We are losing it in the country.
