Believe in your Government!
By Joseph C. Ibekwe
You may not like the government that you have or those leading your government at a particular time, but you must never loose faith that the government, no matter how bad, is setup to work for the benefit of the citizens. Every government, within its capacity, often works hard to deliver on good governance. This could a hard thing for some people to believe especially when indices of good governance are visibly lacking.
It is possible that leaders of governments may lack capacity or political will to perform as you expect, you still must support your government to do the best it can per time.
And the good side of democracy is that it offers you opportunity to assess the performance of your government and decide whether to return them to power or to invite another set of leaders to come on board.
All of these must done with decorum and must not degenerate to abuse of personalities or lose of lives.
Let’s play the game with dignity.
