“Oselu,Ojelu:Politician, Pocketician”

image

Yorubas have seen the very best of govenance right from pre independence to post independence Nigeria. Chief Obafemi Awolowo who spearheaded the effort to move the western region as first among other regions did it wholeheartedly.

It was in that era that the words were coined. ‘Oselu and ojelu’. Those who govern serving the people against those who govern serving personal interest.

image

Nationally for over fifteen years, what we got in governance are the ojelus, those that milk the cow dry. What is it they’ve not done?
It is really that bad. The thing is no matter how smart you think you can fool people, you will definately end up fooling yourself big time. They have come to the end of their game. Nigerians are wiser than all the OJELUS.

PDP government apart from the time of President Umoru Musa Yaradua who had a brief responsive government, the era of President Olusegun Obasanjo and that of President Goodluck Jonathan are era of ‘ojelu’. All they know is to “share the money”. Their call is a call to “come and eat”.

image

Now the power has changed hand to oselu, those who have come to deliever the goodies to the people. Though there is skeptism among the people. They are not sure if the CHANGE is real or not.

Once beaten twice shy. In fact the people have been beaten for far too long. One can understand their fear. It was that fear that resulted to voting aparty. Desperados would do anything to stay in power.

But today, Nigerians are happy apart from some section who are deeply sentimental. Happy to have our new incoming President Mohammadu Buhari. #NigeriansDesides to have “A REAL OSELU” of APC. The man on a journey to collectively create a NEW NIGERIA.

“Human Nature”

image

If you give a human a foot, he/she would ask for a yard. That’s our typical nature. Wherever you’ve been or at any level of your achievement. After a while, it’ll look like child play.

In a country like ours where anything goes and greedy politicians, those that has ruled for two terms will do anything to get third term. The sitting president wanted another term after six years of unimpactful tenure.

His shot at the presidency is just by divine grace and being the first ever to attain such from minority regiion of the country, thought it’s right for him to be re-elected for another term of four years. But people said capital NO.

The funniest thing is the general desire of South Southerner  that they must have two terms for their region since that’s their first time ever being at the helm of affair and who knows when such opportinuty will come to them again? Some even said ” Even if he does not know what to do. He must be there for another four years even if he’s sleeping”

But Nigerian have decided for change. An indication that the country is coming of age democractically.

“Percevearance”

To be on line believing
That it is not yet over
Despite several disapointments
That has no end.

But come to think of it!
What in man’s heart
Outside settling down to
The promise that would
Neither late nor fail.

If one could be settled
In the spirit, all else
Could be achievable
In due season.

MIRAGE

Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a persistent one. So get a few laughs and do the best you can. Don't have an ideal to work for. That's like riding towards the mirage of a lake.
