THIS IS WHAT IS CALLED INTEGRITY
Nelson Mandela revisits his South African prison cell on Robben Island in 1994.
#OnThisDay, February 11, in 1990, the leader of the movement to end apartheid in South Africa, was released from prison after 27 years.
Mandela spent the first 18 of his 27 years in jail at the brutal Robben Island Prison where he was confined to a small cell without a bed or plumbing, and was forced to do hard labour in a quarry.
At Robben Island Prison, he could write and receive a letter once every six months, and once a year he was allowed to meet with a visitor for 30 minutes.
In 1994, Mandela was elected South Africa’s president. He served one term in office and retired from politics in 1999, but remained a global advocate for peace and social justice until his death in December 2013. But in Nigeria the reverse is the case. Government selectivity detaining opposition in the name of fighting corruption. Holding unto power even when they have clearly failed. I will say this again, what we need in Nigeria is competent leaders with good intentions not incompetent leaders with their so called good intentions. My PVC is ready ready to vote them out while we wait for a competent leader. Before u complain i hope urs (PVC) is ready too. HAPPY SUNDAY FAM
