Great evening dear reader, today I’ll try my best not to lament though that’s what ringing in my heart as I type this.
I have no intention to ask questions on how a snake could have opened a vault or a farm could pass for a safe house. But my heart weeps, for a mace of national authority being carted away openly from a senate house.
Well I will outline so short, some things that came up recently that made me believe this country is now a joke. Please, please, best not attack me for saying it as it is, I’m even downplaying this by calling it a joke, it is worse.
1.) Our Mace Got Stolen.
There were at least 250 security men on duty at the National Assembly yesterday when five unknown persons barged into a senate session, picked up the mace and escaped with it, sources said. – Daily Trust
So 5 uncoordinated thugs overran 250 well trained personnels of the armed forces. This I say with hurt in my heart, is a bad poem. (mind you, the mace was later recovered under a bridge.)
2. Presidency Shamed Us On An International Platform.
“More than 60 per cent of the population is below 30, a lot of them haven’t been to school and they are claiming that Nigeria is an oil producing country, therefore, they should sit and do nothing, and get housing, healthcare, education free,” – PMB (during a panel appearance with world leaders at the Commonwealth Business Forum in London.)
The statement is not just one of the most derogatory way youths in a democratic country can be abused but also utterly FALSE, think he is right? Below is for you:
Analysis by Rice University in the U.S. showed that Nigerian youth are the most educated of all migrants in the country. The institution credited the finding to a culture of relentless drive for education amongst Nigerians. – Premium Times
And same youths that are springing up innovative startups everyday that’s very much helping the ailing nation’s economy, and are being hailed by their foreign counterparts have just been shamed internationally by their supposed head. (oh pardon, I almost forgot, he’s our head, my PVC just won’t concur)
3. How I feel In 8lines.
The country I love so dearly now trends in the comics
Voting now seems like paying for a new show of 4 years of unhealthy comedy
The country I love so dearly now wallow in distress
The stress of “someday e go better” but someday’s seeming like after Christ’s second coming.
Politicians wrestle for power, for their bellies, not to make lives better
FIghting each other and not vices that has kept the country underdeveloped
We need saving, and verily I say unto thee, hash tags and social banters would not do, sarcasms on twitter would fail us too
Only prayers and proper use of PVC would save us from doom.
NOTE: Nothing is improving, except for the rate of corruption, and like a saying goes; “INEC doesn’t count prayer points, THEY COUNT VOTES”. So please make a resolution today, monkeys no longer jump from trees to trees eating bananas, they now swallow money whole, so please instead of jumping from trend to trend and voting only during BBN, make a resolution today to pray for our land and to vote right. THANK YOU.
Great evening once again.
