I am sitting here watching the swearing in of the new 'democratically elected' president on Nigeria, President Umaru Yaradua. While the election process was not perfect, the changeover is a reality today, the first time since 1960 when a civilian government will hand over to another civilian government. That in itself is an achievement.

As Yaradua makes his inaugural speech, I hear a lot of promises and vows being made. They sound great. My prayer is that the new government will live up to its profession. Words may come cheep, but it takes courage and character to stand on the professed word and fulfil one's oath.

My words, also, need to be precious and binding. Let your "yes" be yes and your "no" be no, is what the Bible teaches. Lord I receive grace to be more like you. Amen.
