 Poor societies need 'new responses and specialist skills' to exploit new ways of doing things in the 21st century. It must not be business as usual.

We as citizens must play our part in helping to shape domestic policies, helping to get people out of poverty. Africa is blessed with abundant resources, the market is huge, the potential is great ,but we must get the policy makers to get it right. I know it's a struggle, it can be done with good leadership , motivated team with the right skills and commitment. Increased productivity is a necessity for poor societies to ascend out of poverty, not increased violence.

My dear Lord Jesus Christ, I adore you from the depth of my nothingness, and I thank you for all the graces you have bestowed upon me and the gift of consciousness to help shape the society, a cause i'm wholly committed to. All I ask is the perfect fulfilment of your will.

Uche Okeke
