One detraction to the national rapport is the hackneyed lies. Lies told and retold many times as truth. Lies told deliberately to tinge a past of acrimony in brushstrokes of harmony. Nigeria never had a glorious past and the ‘’founding fathers’’ never envisioned a congenial future for the country. There has never been such a thing as ‘’Nigerian unity’’; it only exists in the tomes of make-believe. We would rather parrot this fiction than work at achieving a national accord. The first step to unity should be discarding the lies and embracing the truth about our past while seeking collective concurrence.
We must pursue national unity with truth and honesty about who we are; where we are from, where we have been and where we are headed for.
