Saturday Digest: The Chinese Deal

“They have run down to China ” The young man cries out. We stared at the moving train to see if our President will ask us to join him and his team but he was not listening nor looking at us, so we wait at the side line warming up waiting for our turn to enter the ring.

Seriously, things are not going as plan, so they say. We have not feel the change we were looking for, so it seems, the young man stares at us and we were helpless, hopeless and unwilling to leave the side line.

“Why China? ” the young man asked “Why not China?” I wanted to respond but for the sake of our almost no nation, I hold my breath, hoping that he will understand that it is not easy to run a nation without adequate funds.

He stares at me as if he was reading my mind… “What about the recovered fund, we were told that a former minister return about $90 million US dollars, what about the Dasuki gate money? ”

I look at him in disbelief, maybe he was suffering from too much of Chinese movies. Questions keep coming, yet I wasn’t able to give him any answers but I tried to talk to him with my eyes, hoping his mind will show him, the right path to follow.

“Hello my people ” I said as I turn to face the audience that was waiting to hear me speak. ” How market? ” The audience was silent, there was no movement in the hall. Then a soft voice out of no where shouted ” Sai Baba ”
We tried to spot the person but we couldn’t, so we move back to our ignorance and look at the Chinese Deal with hope.

The Chinese Deal was our last hope so they tell us, our situation and our economy was dependent on it.
And since, they have sign it, we are still waiting and silently hoping for the best. Welcome to the Yauns age……
