THE QUESTION TO ASK IS WHAT ARE WE DOING?
The weight of the numerous issues that burdens Nigeria is yet to be ascertained but the effects are definitely in full swing. It’s almost disgusting to talk about the problems that Nigeria faces but someone has to do the dirty work.
Dino Melaye’s Dance Video
This week, a certain stand-up comedian who was just recently ejected from the senate, ushered us into the new week with a video of him dancing and singing in Yoruba. The full transcript of the meaning of his song is not as important as the caption he placed beneath the video: “congratulating Smart Adeyemi is like congratulating an armed robber after a successful operation” Now, the dance did little to shield his despair at losing in a game he claims to be adept at- the political game in Nigeria characterized by bribing, thuggery and many other vile practices. Nigerians definitely have had their laughs but, very few frowns have followed. Some would say “he lost, he should move on” without wondering why governance in Nigeria is a joke, thereby effectively destroying everything that being sovereign stands for. Well, Nigeria is a joke and Dino Melaye is the punch line.
Apparently Someone Is Being Bullied!!
Recently, someone came out to throw weight behind the controversial and obviously disgusting social media bill because she was getting bullied online. Yes, she predicated her support for the bill on cyber bullying, which is really not what the bill is about but rather, a suppression of the voices of the “free” citizens of this country. Popular twitter evangelist; SEGA L’EVEILLEUR quite rightly suggested that she do some actual research before speaking on such a weighty issue, but looking at her comments quite critically and with a pinch of salt as well, it makes sense to embargo what you don’t like by asking one of your fathers friends to sponsor a bill that effectively shuts them up, but oh well, what do we know?
Does it make sense to borrow when you can’t pay back?
On the morning show on arise Tv this morning, a certain Mr Muda Yusuf; the director general of the Lagos state chamber of commerce appeared to give a rundown of the foolishness in seeking for more borrowed funds when previous debts have not been paid, thereby converting Nigeria into a modern day colony of the west due to the hefty sums owed. If all the data and figures relating to the national debt crisis is irrelevant to you, think about the future of the kids yet to be born into a country struggling to solve present day issues.
