Nigeria: Gone with the wind of erratic change

How things disappear so fast here, as if they never occupied our precious time (and distracted us) while they appeared.
No more “we want Arewa”.
No more “it’s Biafra or nothing”.
No more “give me Oduduwa Republic or give me death”.
Even “restructure is the only way” now appears to be overtaken by event, despite that catch phrase almost upending the national anthem.
Drama has since gained ground, sometimes laced with comedy. No matter how, it’s there for you to either enjoy or simply ignore.

2019: to contest or not to contest;

Zuma’s statue: to dismantle or not to dismantle;

JAMB office: how to bar thieving snakes;

Dapchi: the return of Chibok episode;

Election timetable: to reorder or not to reorder;

Recovered loot: to sell off or not to sell off;

Kaduna: to bulldoze opponents or not to bulldoze opponents;

Russia 2018: to throw Super Eagles’ camp open or not to throw it open. The titles are inexhaustible.
The foregoing easily reminds of the good old Lagos TV jingle: “If you want the very best in entertaining programmes tune to Channel 10. Never a dull moment…” How many remember that fascinating jingle?
Come to think of it: Isn’t life itself drama?
