Our lawmakers have shown an inhuman, and mind-boggling capacity for what can only be described as certified, incontrovertible, and indubitable, stupidity! How do we contextualize this new bill, in the light of the glaring challenges faced by Nigerians daily!
|Over eighty percent of Nigerians live on less than a dollar a day|
Nigerians possess, undoubtedly,one of the richest nations on earth! One where natural resources are surfeit, and able to move the people from poverty, to prosperity!
However, to the dismay of the ordinary man on the street, a deliberate, and criminal, lack of political will, has made all the wealth of the nation seem like property acquired in dreamland:useless!
|This is a school!|
They are so full, that they can hardly sit up during debates! They have to slouch, and sometimes sleep, like some five year old, after a long day at school!
One would not be surprised, if, one of these days, a motion is moved to introduce beds into the chambers, to make the work of legislation less-cumbersome!
These are people whose allegiance, is not to the electorate, but to their stomachs!
They see public service as an avenue for self-enrichment, and not service to the people! They are like the pigs of George Orwell's Animal Farm!
They have hastily passed a law that is useless!
What is the business of the government, in a person's sexual orientation? Especially, when that government has not invested meaningfully in the lives of her people!
Nigeria might as well be ruled by a colonial master, and her wealth used to develop the colonial master's country; for that is exactly how it feels right now!
We are seeing the wealth with our eyes, and that is where it ends!
My admonition to the pigs is, remember the Spanish saying, that every pig has it's Saint Martins Day!
MAY GOD BLESS NIGERIA, OUR NIGERIA, FOREVER!
