WHAT IS UNITY?

 

Unity can be defined as a state of living or existing as one entity.

 

National unity can be seen as living together as one with zero respect for religion, tribe, race, or ethnicity.

 

Hence, citizens are said to be united if they live in harmony with one another and speak with a single voice.

 

IMPORTANCE OF UNITY TO CITIZENS

 

Unity doesn’t only have a positive impact on the country, it also plays a vital role in the citizen's life.

 

It influences how they live with one another, how they interact their approach to problems, political views, and many more.

 

Some of these benefits include:

 

PEACEFUL COEXISTENCE

 

Unity as a virtue promotes peaceful living among individuals, this is because, with unity, individual or citizens consider another person’s problem their own.

 

What affect one affects all, this single rule will make citizens cherish one another, and hence wouldn’t let anything happen to anyone.

 

In a country where the citizens are united, there will be no religious crisis because every citizen has esteemed respect for another’s faith, there will be no racism because they all believe they are equal, there will be no ethnic crises because they all believe and agree to be and exist as one.

 

This will ensure a peaceful existence in that particular community.

 

POLITICAL RELEVANCE

 

A community that is united will be more relevant In politics than a community that isn’t, this is because a united community speak in a single voice following what the majority believed while a non-united community doesn’t have a single voice, every single entity speaks for his own self.

 

Speaking with a single voice will make the government know what that specific community need, and will make the government execute it as government fears majority, but with everyone speaking his views, at times each view opposing the other will confuse the government and hence couldn’t figure out what the community needs specifically.

 

JOINT COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT WORKS

 

With unity, a community can have schedules of community works it will be executing daily, weekly, monthly, or even yearly.

 

There will be a division of labor, each individual will know when and where he is to do his own work.

 

These works include sanitation, bush burning, clearing gutters, cutting grass, repairing roads, schools, sanitizing communities, and many more.

 

These can only be achieved in a community where there exists unity.

It is undoubtedly agreed and believed that development doesn’t, isn’t, and will never come to exist without unity.

 

And development is a general term encompassing many things within it.

Education is every country’s priority, this due to the impact it has on the citizens and the country at large, there is nothing one can do without education; you can’t be united without education.

 

So the question here is HOW CAN UNITY HELP DEVELOP EDUCATION? Here is how

 

With unity, the government tend to listen to citizens more (the reason is stated above), so if a country’s educational system is poor, or institutions lack equipment and resources, the citizens can voice out their views, make suggestions, and request for the reformation of the system or provision of the equipment needed, and the government will surely listen and with immediate effect tackle the problem, because the citizens are united.

 

UNITY HELP TACKLE SECURITY CHALLENGES

 

As stated earlier, with unity, citizens get to understand each other and thus have a mutual understanding; this will help drastically reduce the insecurity rate in that country.

 

And in case of insurgency, with unity, citizens can give valuable information to security personnel and help fight the war with them through night vigilante and other necessary security precautionary measures which will help curb the insecurity challenge.

Unity is a very important factor that improves a nation’s economy.

 

With unity, citizens can collaborate to form a business and employ other citizens, and provision of employment will help improve a country’s economy because more business organizations in a country mean more tax, more tax means more income and more income means a better economy.
