The story is not only for the sadist and the preachers, nor of truth within lies. The story started with a good defining quote “I belong to everyone and I belong to no one” this epic quote has defined the momentum of what we called the change mantra in our dear country, Nigeria. Classfying Nigerians into 5% and 95%, wailing wailers and the rest, then recently ‘the change begins with me’ slogan.
Once upon a time, the story begins, I don’t think I was the only one that was born then, but I am pretty sure that my mentor and friend of blessed memory had already warn us that “there was a country” but should we blame him for telling us his mind?
You would agree with me specifically that Nigeria under our dear President, His Excellency Buhari is working or are you trying to say he is not? Sai Baba!
I had a telephone conversation recently with a friend somewhere across the Pacific on how best we “Nigerians” can help grow our economy, most of the things he said was true but it’s a pity there is so many odds against us but should we blame the gods?
Forgive me if you are yet to fill the impact of the change, but believe me, the truth is bitter, change in any form and direction is both sweet and bitter, abi is it not so? There is crisis in the land, I don’t think we should blame the gods.
Fela sang it when he said ‘We are smiling and suffering’ Prof Soyinka spoke about it, Ray Ekpu wrote about it, have you not listen to African China song “Mr President” What of Femi Fani-Kayode and Reuben Abati articles, or are you trying to tell me that, the current economic situation is not affecting you? Have you listen to Senator Dino Melaye speaking on the state of the economy, what of Governor Fayose of Ekiti State, even my dear friend and brother Senator Ben Murray Bruce or should we just blame the gods for all this crisis?
I saw a very disturbing video yesterday, please forgive me for deviating a little. I want to plead with all those dancing round our President all in the name of getting favour to allow our dear President to work, copying Obama speech for Buhari is not only pitiful but satanic. We must all come to terms with what works in Nigeria and what does not, we are a nation that was build on dedication and service not imitation and plagiarism. Or should we allow the labours of our heroes past to be in vain during our time?
There is crisis in the land, don’t say I didn’t warn, a time to pray is now, a time for constructive criticism is now, a time to protest is now, our future as one sovereign state is at risk, the President needs our prayers, patience and support or should we just folds our arms and continue blaming the gods?
