(Participants at NRP inaugural me
A Forum, Nigeria Rescue Platform (NRP) on Sunday rose from its inaugural meeting in Oshogbo, Osun State Capital to expressed worry over the present state of Nigeria and made a clarion call to rescue the country from cabals who have been destroying its fabrics over time.
The forum noted that, the country would have been better of if its leaders have the love of the country at heart as they claim, hence the need for sincere mind to come together and rescue their motherland before things get out of hand completely.
Speaking during the meeting in Oshogbo, the convener, Oluwasegun M. Oladimeji (popularly called Bethel Moseglad) warned that, if Nigerians, especially the youths who are about 56 million out of about 182 million people (projection) ignore the call to rescue the country, they may end up serving as slaves to children of the few cabals that are terrorising the country.
According to him, “here is a nation so blessed in everything needed to make her desire of every other nation but lives otherwise; reproach. Nigeria, a land filled with honey yet her citizens live in abject poverty. Other nations get helps from us and get better than us. Other nations learnt from us yet we envy them. The worst is that our resources are scattered all over the world being solutions to problems yet we wallow in problems.
“Many things need to be RESCUED. Many people had risen to the RESCUE of this nation. In a time like this we must remember the effort of people like Anthony Enahoro, Chief Obafemi Awolowo, Herbert Macaulay and many of their class.
“These people foresaw it that Nigeria deserves more than what she can ever have. They all laboured to make Nigeria a desirable and enviable nation. To the extent that some of them laid their lives has ransom.
“Just as if the price paid is not enough, things are getting worse. Everything seems wrong and not working. Lots of people and leadership have actually come onboard to take their parts in this struggle to make Nigeria great.
“Although, it is glaring that many people that partook only take their turn to rape the country even repeatedly; siphoning her just for their selfish gain in building a world for themselves out of the country.
There is a need to RESCUE Nigeria from the hands of the cabals that claim to be the owner of Nigeria.
“They have concluded to form a castle that will be for them and for them alone. They only see masses as an avenue to amass wealth and power. Nigeria has to be rescued, because they set to enslave the generation yet unborn and this they will freely do if Nigeria is not rescued.
“Who will rescue her? Who have the hoe to make heap of wealth and power and will choose not to make the heap to himself? Who will make the masses the priority? Who will stand for the nation? We have been betrayed by all.
“I am afraid that the answer to the above question is you. The answer is I. the answer is we, the answer is us. It is high time we all rise to the rescue of this nation. It is high time you as a person see this country as your own do everything in your power to save the land.
“Abraham Tiro gave his life for his country to save South Afrtica. There is every tendency that if he did not do that, he would not be alive today. There is no price too high to pay in rescuing this Nation. So, If we refuse to rise to rescue the nation nobody will.
“If we fail to rescue the nation now, it is glaring that our children will still come serve servitude in their fatherland. It is glaring that they will be enslaved by their brother in their own land. The masses has lost her voice long time ago, we have to restore the land and give the masses their voice.
“It is high time we redefine democracy to be “government of the masses, for the masses and by the masses” it appears that it is been defined as government of some people for some people and by some people. We are the one to rescue our land and now is the time to do so.”
