Nigerian Twitter experienced the ‘fight of the month’ as two ladies dragged each other back and forth on the micro-blogging website. The drama started when a popular twitter user, @omohtee12 pictured above , shaded @EdoFirstLady, insinuating that she (@EdoFirstLady) was not physically appealing, especially for […]
In 24 hours time we will be witnessing and discussing inauguration of new governments at federal and state levels….The focus of this piece is on governors who are directly “closer” or supposed to be closer to the people thereby impacting more on them good governance….and giving them the dividends of democracy….
Similarly, the piece is an attempt to x-ray how we the led act at times like this. I am looking at what the next 24 hours to May 29, 2019 brings on or presents to both the incoming and outgoing governors….
A day outgoing governors wish to postpone for another four years….a day of nightmares….
A day outgoing governors wish was the beginning of their tenure….a day they wish to be sworn in again….a day they want the hand of time to return to the beginning….
A day full of regrets…of things not done but should have been done….For those who did well, a day of joy…
A day of reality check….of things wrongly and deliberately done but their effects boomerang….
A day of short and immediate if not spontaneous stocktaking/account of stewardship….
A day the last “rush-hour” massive and mindless looting is carried out….by “looting governors”…..However, not all loot….
A day “flying” contracts will be signed to rake the crumbs left….and possibly empty the treasury….
A day massive employments will be approved by outgoing governors to unsettle the incoming governor….
A day a long list of names will be sent to the incoming governors from party chieftains, godfathers, traditional rulers, clergies, relatives and associates to confuse and “confiscate” them (incoming governors)…..
A day the battle-line is drawn between the incoming governors and those expecting appointments having “worked” for the incoming governors but failed to or did not make the shortlist of aides to be appointed….
A day enemies will be made by incoming governors once their speeches hurt idlers, jobbers and hangers-on waiting for “something”…..
A day friendship goes frosty….A day bonds bend or break….
A day phone numbers change….a day lines stop getting through….a day of frustration as many get blocked off and “cut off” friendship radar….
A day of mourning to some and celebration to others…
A day some outgoing governors will begin to think of the possibility of an EFCC invitation once they leave office….
A day thoughts of an end to immunity drives some outgoing governors crazy….as they attempt to travel out to continue living their comfort lifestyle….
A day to remember that they will once again return to the houses, streets, hoods and localities of COMMONERS….This is for those who failed to or could not continue their political journey/enjoyment into the Senate…..
●MY TAKE : It is a circle we run every four years. Sadly, we learn nothing from this….We destroy our system. We kill democracy. We ruin the chance of true change. We destroy love for humanity and true service. We hate sacrifice especially selfless ones. We over-rely on man and what man can give or do….Those who refuse or fail to move on with their lives end up full of regrets …hoping on vanity and emptiness of man!
