    This is my first time writing to you, please take it seriously and send it to the people in Nigeria to see.
    We as a country has good leaders but our problem is 98% of Nigerians lack integrity and sincerity, if we don’t teach integrity and sincerity we will never change the way we do things and we will keep blaming the government when the truth is we are all the same in values from the poorest to the richest, from the COMMONER TO THE ELITE, NO INTEGRITY AND SINCERITY, we may all pretend to be good but deep down we are all the same.
    In our homes to start with, we like to cheat each other and call it smartness that is the problem with Nigerians, we compromise in everything and everyway; that is the issues with us.
    Because we lack integrity and sincerity, we don’t do things right, ask your family member or a friend to do something for you, he/she will cheat you all because he/she want to get rich and we all think is normal that way. If we must change we all need to start to act right by standing with our words, when we say yes let it be yes and when we say no let it be no, let when we see money than we will change our mind, we cannot change that way.
    Happy Christmas to all Nigerians
