Our polity, our economy, our condition are all products of our deliberate choices. They are the outcomes of the people we choose to lead us. Poor leadership affects every Nigerian – young, old, rich, poor; white or blue collar; North or South; Muslim and Christian. So choosing our leaders is not an emotional project. It is a rational enterprise. We chose the leader to govern us, and she/he will deliver only according to her/his ability. Nothing more, nothing less. But the consequence – cost or benefit – of our action will live with us. Not in the past, but in the present and the future; with us, our children and children’s children. It is not so complicated that only the geniuses among us can relate. Neither does it apply to one and spares the other. In the words of teacher Clark, we all rise, fall, sink or swim together.
