Nigeria na country where plenty people get shame and a few, lousy ones don trade dem shame for money on a platter of gold. At least, if that money go take them to the top, na who care about the shame? In fact, the question wey dem go ask na say “Those people wey get shame, dem fit go market go buy something with shame?” That’s not possible.
So, why not lose the shame and take the money. If you need one of those examples of shamelessness in Nigeria, make you visit the link below http://saharareporters.com/video/rivers-assembly-crisis-lawmaker-battered-mace-still-critical-condition-channelstv?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+saharaReporters+(Sahara)
where Lawmakers, who suppose to dey represent millions of people resort to flogging (nay, killing) themselves rather than representing the people that voted them to do so. Well, anybody fit live as dem like. Wetin dey most saddening na say the people wey dem suppose to dey represent, wey suppose to dey vex go come gather for beer parlour (if dem be men) or for kitchen, salon or other gossip centers (if dem be women). While some dey gossip, others dey laugh over the matter. Yet, some others no just care or no even know wetin dey happen for Rivers. Of course, not when there’s traffic for road to battle with or hunger to strike down. Who cares who beats or who steals what?
In any case, the Publicity Secretary of the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN), Lai Mohammed, dey worried over the Rivers State case as he don issue a statement. Mr Mohammed don link the crisis in the state to the President of the country. Find below parts of his statement:
“Under President Jonathan’s watch and with his tacit support, a few lawmakers dictated to majority of the members of the Ogun State House of Assembly, which was locked for a long time. Under President Jonathan’s watch, the Nigerian Governors’ Forum was sabotaged by his minions who declared a Governor with 16 votes a winner over the one who scored 19 votes, in an injurious blow to the concept of democracy.
“And under his watch, five lawmakers – out of 32 – have become the majority and, simply because they have the backing of the presidency, are now being given police protection to disrupt the proceedings of the House. As we write, Rivers state has been taken over by current and former militants who have been unleashed to destabilize the state and cause a breakdown of law and order, to pave the way for the imposition of a State of Emergency,”
He also yarn say “this cannot and must not be allowed to continue, hence our call on the National Assembly to move quickly to remove the source of the crisis. Since this is no longer an intra-party dispute and because of its potentials to set the country on fire, we also call on civil society groups, professional bodies and ordinary Nigerians to rise up and defend the rule of law and the supremacy of the Constitution over arbitrariness.”
lAkUnLeScReWs dey wait as the news dey unfold. If na beer you dey drink, drink; if na gossip you dey gossip, gossip and if na traffic you dey, be patient. Just no forget say for the Unity of Nigeria, the country needs the imput of all man. Put eye for the matter small.

With the these bad crop of political machineries in Nigeria, we are a light years away from true democracy. We are still in the era of selectocracy and not democracy. When true democracy comes, all these political brigandage, in-fightings, corruption, dictatorship and thuggery will be a thing of the past. As for the master planner, let’s wait and see how far he goes with his evil and political machinations because very soon the table will turn.
Hmmm, Hon. Oluwaseyi, I’m listening. Some thoughts….
