Please describe your vision of a world that works for everyone.
My vision of a world that works for everyone is a world that is void of injustice. A world where everybody is equal before the law. A world where the three basic of human being, food shelter and clothing are met. A world where everybody has access to free health services, education and gainfully employed.
What do you see as the most pressing problems facing the world today?
The most pressing problem facing the world today are security problem. Insecurity is looming large on a daily basis. The world is becoming more unsafe. Insurgencies, suicide bombing is gaining ground. Also, climate change is eating the world up. Natural disaster is on increase. Couple with the aforementioned is hunger and poverty and unemployment problem. Thousands of people could hardly afford two meals per day. Myriad live below two dollars per day. Poverty is ravaging the world. The rate of unemployment is on increase on yearly basis especially in developing nations. Going to school is fast becoming unattractive due to unemployment challenges. Corruption is another problem that is facing the world today. Nations are infested with corruption. Loyalty, fair play, honesty and justice is becoming a things of the past.
How do you feel these problems could best be solved?
There is a saying that if you are not benefiting in an environment you would not mind destroying it. There is the need to inculcate sense of belongings in every citizens of every nation. This can be done by treating every citizen of the world equally regardless of tribe, culture or race or educational qualification or achievement. The reason is that most of the human beings that are agents of insecurity are using it to agitate for one thing or the other or as a result of unmet needs Rule of law should be strictly observed. Education should also be made free at all. Education will bring about liberation of the spirit, soul and mind. Education should address the current challenges such as climate changes. This will reduce climate injustice. Also honesty and truth should be greatly rewarded. This will motivate others to follow a righteous path. I am not advocating that offenders should not be punished to serve as a deterrent to other but ht e righteous should be rewarded as well
