*ONCE UPON A COUNTRY*

*ONCE UPON A COUNTRY*
They have made all efforts to stop History as a subject so that critical information will be lost for ever. But before that happens, please consider the following:
Once upon a time, once upon a country:
In 1956 there was a country... whose first Mayor in a place called Enugu was a Fulani man by the name of Mallam Umaru Altine. He was not appointed but elected TWICE as Mayor.
There was a country which has a place called Port Harcourt. The people of Port Harcourt elected a man called Chief John Umolu (from Etsako in today's Edo State) to represent its municipality in the Eastern Region House of Assembly.
In 1959 there was a country, a country where when its Eastern House of Chiefs was constituted and a man named Mallam Umaru Yushau, the Sarkin Hausawa or Chief of the Hausas in Onitsha, was elected a member of the Eastern House of Chiefs.
In 1957 there was a country which has a city called Kano, one Felix Okonkwo, as a special member of the Northern House of Chiefs.
In 1950 in a place called Lagos Olorunimbe was the first Mayor of Lagos with Mazi Mboni Ojike as his deputy
In 1952 a man from Ogwashi Ukwu, by the name of Chike Ekwuiyasi represented Benin West in the Western House of Assembly.
In 1961, the people of Aba voted Margret Ekpo to represent them and Abakaliki voted Chief Eyo Bassey (father of AK. APC Pub. Sec) both non-Igbos into parliament.
Alh.. Ibrahim Abubakar Imam from Maiduguri represented Tivland Gboko in the house of representatives.
Before all these, Obafemi Awolowo led the campaign for Ernest Ikoli, an Ijaw man who defeated Chief Akinsanya in an election in Lagos. Nnamdi Azikiwe led the NCNC to a clean sweep of legislative seats in Lagos.
A Ghanaian Barrister practicing on Calabar called Atta Munu represented his town of residence in the first legislature in this country elected by universal adult suffrage.
To the young people who have always imagined that Nigeria has always been a jungle where lawlessness and tribalism reign, ...this was the way it really was and the way we were.
Merit, character and patriotism held sway and the country kept pace with the world.
That was our Great Country Nigeria before the vultures took over...
Working together, we can have that country, that Nigeria back again.
Yes we can!
