As you probably know, the ALF has initiated a campaign called The Good Nigerian. It aims at identifying, celebrating, promoting and supporting everyday citizens who are proving themselves as worthy ambassadors of the nation in their various communities or endeavours.

Many years ago, I had a rather interesting conversation with a slightly younger colleague. We were generally talking about the Nigerian society but more specifically about leadership values and ethics in the country. One thing that struck me during that conversation was the confidence with which the colleague argued that when a person tries to do the right and proper thing in Nigeria, the system consumes him or her. In very clear terms, he said, “Oga, no matter how hard you try, Nigeria will defeat you”.
