Former Big Brother house winner Uti Nwachukwu has come out and read the riot act to Nigerians who behave bad on social media.
He put up the quote on his facebook account under the headline (NIGERIA- PLS STOP COMPLAINING AND START APPRECIATING! GRATITUDE CANNOT BE OVER EMPHASIZED) asking people to change their ways, he started off by saying that we as a nation are misusing social media, whereas other nation use it to help and build their communities.
He said: The Major SPIRITUAL PROBLEM we have as a nation is COMPLAINING!! NAGGING!! BICKERING!!! I’m sorry to break the news to you but this country will NEVER GET BETTER until we STOP!!! Look at the bible, after the Israelites got delivered from Egypt and they were tested in the wilderness, what did they do? Complain!!! And what happened…you know the rest !! We keep praying for Nigeria to get better but the minute God sends a representative to us and allows us to go thru a test, the COMPLAINING starts!!! What spurred this Thot in my head.
He then took some time to talk of Keshi’s Super Eagles perfomance in Brazil and said: This is a team we had all become ashamed of after the 90s. God obviously sent us Keshi and some players to redeem our image. After a lot of hard work and training we finally won the African Nations Cup! And we all sang praises (cue in deliverance from Egypt) Now we went to the World Cup and our first draw.
The insults started!! We won the other game (cue in manna) the praises started again. We lost and fell out of the tournament! And then the curses started again. Now Keshi has resigned! (Cue in calamities suffered by Israelites in the wilderness).
Some are so ungrateful and even saying “Let him go Jor!” “Who is he?” “Is he our God?” Smh. Nope he is not our God. But surely he was sent to lead and grow our team.
Then he talked about the security issues bothering the nation at the moment, he said: Have you ever wondered why the security crises lingers? Yes yes blame it on the leaders and flawed systems! Blame it on the terrorists, blame it on whoever and whatever! But hey. We are praying right? Joining hands right? So why is it still happening?… We have to be careful before God withdraws from this country!! GOD hates Pride and Ingratitude o! I’m not campaigning for anyone but I remember how we all prayed for a leader for democracy, we Got OBJ. We abused and complained. Still God had mercy. We Got M.Yaradua.
We talked and complained some more. Still more mercy..we got G.Jonathan! (Nobody forced you to vote! we came out in droves to truly vote! And we jubilated when he won!) Now immediately the challenges started ..ghen ghen Nigerians used social media to bicker! Complain, Insult!….it didn’t stop…more crises to test us.. we complained!!!
It just keeps getting worse meanwhile we are praying abi!!! Where is the praise? Where is the worship to God almighty? Where is the thanksgiving?! – did God say we won’t have challenges?? Even Jesus was tested right after he was elevated!!! Did he succumb??!!! My dear Nigerians it’s not too late o!!! It’s not at all!! Let the GRATITUDE START NOW! Stop all negative talks and complaining!
What do you think of his speech ? is he right or does he come off looking bad?
