Happy Democracy Day Nigerians!!

Happy Democracy Day my fellow Nigerians. This day has always been memorable for us and moreso today (May 29,2015) because power changes hands on this day. (former) President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan will hand over the affairs of Nigeria to President Muhammadu Buhari.
The President, Vice-president, State Governors and their Deputies have been sworn in. We all hope this era brings about the much needed positive change Nigeria deserves. It is not necessarily the dawn of a new era per se, more of a recycling in my opinion, most of the people being sworn in have previously held politically appointed posts, even President Muhammadu Buhari who was the Head of State of Nigeria in 1983 under the military regime.
We can only hope that their minds have been refined and renewed to take Nigeria and its citizens to a better place, viable, stable & progressive, instead of being clouded with greed, quest for power and corruption.
Nigeria has dodged many bullets in recent times and has still held strong and united, from Boko Haram attacks to the Ebola outbreak, Elections and most recently Fuel (Diesel, Petrol, Kerosene) Scarcity. I commend the former President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan for taking his loss in good faith. I imagine his party members, legislators and some of his friends and family will not have taken his decision well but if there was any one good patriotic thing he did for his country, it was not fighting his loss.
The newly sworn-in President Muhammadu Buhari has assured all Nigerians of his intent to keep the oath he has made. He has been quoted saying "I belong to everybody and I belong to nobody" during his inaugural speech, if he stays true to his words then we may be in for a good run afterall. 
We can only hope for the best as we play our individual roles in making our great country a better place.
Please Share it! :)
