Goodluck, His Ambition, The Electoral Process And Nigeria With the death of President Musa Yar’Adua
and the bitter altercations that attended his last days way behind
us, there is every need to remind President Goodluck Jonathan that
Nigeria is a work begging for urgent attention. By now, he must have
rounded off propitiation to the be...nevolent deity that had brought him thus
far. Even as he savour the glory of the cheap praises and adulations
freely spent on him by traditional hustlers and expectant
Nigerians, he must realize that his getting there is a means and not
the end itself. We need to obey Jehovah even when we seem to be
alone. The psalmist David noted the importance of integrity on occasions
when he may have been alone. As king, David led a very public life.
There were no doubt many times when he had hundreds, even thousands, of
observers. However, David learned that when he might have been
alone—‘inside his house’—he still needed to walk in integrity.
