Why Blame The Igbo’s For Our Failure In Business By Jamilu Mabai
Posted On Jun 7, 2015
“I tried so hard, I gave it my ultimate best effort BUT the people don’t patronize my services [blackbelly], they prefer to patronize services by non-indigene”
“I have a business idea BUT I don’t have the capital to start the business and I don’t want to downgrade myself soliciting for startup capital”
“Don’t worry yourself it’s our government now, it’s our turn now to write proposal and solicit for big contract”
“Hey don’t bother about me; my family has connections so why should I care to struggle as hard as everyone else”.
“It’s not possible you CANNOT make it here (Katsina) unless you have a godfather or an IGBO man whom can withstand the harsh realities of doing business in this state”
Above are words seldom spoken by we the teaming young energetic youth whom by divine nature are the leaders of tomorrow that will steer the wheel of governance and business entrepreneurship in the state. In each of the sentences above you can feel the pain and misery of self defeat in our minds? We tend to remain blind and keep silent to our problems by shifting and blaming IGBOS for taking over our domestic businesses which we couldn’t overcome the challenges of competition and lack self determination to commit to our businesses soul heatedly and accept the challenges and obstacle we might have encounter but we gave up to forces of self inflicted negative believes whom have reduced our strength and courage to that of a feeble old man who cannot do anything for himself unless through assistance.
Why blame the Igbo’s for our failure in business when we are not ready to commit ourselves and become men of action, we procrastinate a lot and day dream without acting out our dreams.
Unless we the people of Katsina are willing and determine to commit to our business with so much enthusiasm, patience and good customer relation, until we change our mindset free from any sort of negativity and primitive belief, until we let go of our EGO’S and learn the secret to doing business we will forever remain slaves in our homeland.
Remember we don’t have problems to solve BUT decisions to make.
May Almighty God save Us from Us.
