People of any defined geographical location is the definition of their democracy. Leaders do not have the physical muscles and mental fortitude to abuse a nation unless permitted by the citizens . Therefore, what happened to Mr. Ekweremadu, a senator from Nigeria in Germany could be the genesis of the paradigm shift.
Obviously, Nigerians home and abroad are sick and tired of the orhukuruku (meaning very bad behavior in Urhobo language of Delta state, Nigeria) of their leaders. Soon, the bad leaders in Nigeria, Africa and any place in the world would not have peace and joy. Did you see what happened to the Ivorian leader in France some years back? What about the dust bin phenomenon in Ukraine recently? Now, the paradigm shift is here, the citizens need to stand up and take their countries back from these thieves. Enough is past due people!

We are entering a new era in this world, it is spreading like a desert fire burning a lot of dry leaves. The politicians and the elites have subtly reaped of the poor population for long. Now, they have finally had enough, there is no more sanctuaries for these thieves and treasuries sippers. Things are beginning to happen to politicians from developing and third world countries. Mr. Ekweremadu, a senator from Nigeria was physically attacked out of frustration and anger recently in Germany, he had to run for his life.
Recently, the prime Minister of Britain, Mr. Boris Johnson was attacked with all kind of materials by angry Britons. Obviously, this is as a result of BREXIT fallout. Can he survive BREXIT? I doubt, the world economy is now intertwine and severely helixxed together, any isolation carries consequences. Also, it is on record that the former president of Ivory Coast, Mr. Gbagbo was attacked by Ivoriens in France, he too had to run for his life. Could this be the genesis of a new revolution?

The state of any Nation is the reflection of the believe of that geographic location. However, leaders or politicians are usually complacent when the citizens who suffers from their bad leadership refuses to stand up against them. The public abuse on Senator Ekweremadu in a new yam festival event in Germany is a sound message to Nigeria leaders. But will this force Nigerian politicians to repent of their wrong doing? Or will beating up Nigerian politicians change the paradigm? Frankly, I don’t think so.
Apparently, Nigerian youths have a way of fighting wrongly. When the paradigm shifted years back in Tunisia and Egypt, no body beat up politicians rather they were forced by a revolution to vacate governance. And it was done right in their country not abroad. Just like last week Wednesday when Nigerian youths attempted to burn down and practically looted Shoprite’s franchise companies believing they’re South African own companies. This is a fight against Nigerians and must stop. Beating up a politician today will not deprive him of looting tommorow.
Conclusively, the time to drum up for a massive revolution is now and all Nigerian youths must explore all available means to achieve that. We must be fearless and ready to fight the real fight instead of chasing shadows. If we fight them on the polls and fail, then we should use the power of the social media to draw massive support against their lukewarm leadership and continue to front our aim. There is this Chinese adage that says, the journey of a thousand miles begins with a step. Aluta Continue!!!!
