I believe in you.
I believe in life.
I believe in treasuring it as a mystery that will never be fully understood, as a sanctity that should never be destroyed, as an invitation to experience now what can only be remembered tomorrow.
I believe in liberty.
I believe that within every soul
lies the capacity to reach for its own good, that within every physical body there endures an unalienable right to be free from coercion.
I believe in a system of government that places that liberty at the center of its concerns, that enforces the law solely to protect that freedom, that sides with the individual against the claims of family and tribe and church and nation, that sees innocence before guilt and dignity before stigma.
I believe in the pursuit of happiness.
Not its attainment, nor its final definition, but its pursuit.
I believe in the journey, not the arrival; in conversation, not monologues; in multiple questions rather than any single answer.
I believe in the struggle to remake ourselves and challenge each other in the spirit of eternal forgiveness, in the awareness that none of us knows for sure what happiness truly is, but each of us knows the imperative to keep searching.
I believe in the possibility of surprising joy, of serenity through pain, of homecoming through exile.
I believe in you. I believe Nigeria will be great.
helping you become…
