Nigerian politics will never change even with this democracy. It will always be dirty. First it was Funsho WIlliams a Lagos politician and gubernatorial candidate under the PDP umbrella. Williams was assasinated in his home, strangle and stabbed. His assailants stil at large but you and I and the average OluwaChukwuemekaHassan know it is some fellow politician who ordered the attack. Now I read that another politician also from PDP in the Ekiti area by the name Ayo Daramola has also been killed. Yet another 'Cold Case' added to the list of several because we still don't have the killers of Dele Giwa, Kudirat Abiola, Bola Ige, Maman Vasta etc etc and the list goes on in custody. This neww fresh murder comes barely 3 weeks after the Funsho William saga. Unrelated perhaps, but Coincindence...I THINK NOT.
It is so ironic that just a few days after the news of William's assassination, I and some aquintances were having a conversation about Nigerian politics and how dirty a game it was. We were almost mocking the whole thing an din a morbid way were laughing and joking about how many people will die because of the 2007 presidential election. How many people would lose their mother or father. How many people 'we know' or 'went to shcool' with would be in mourning in the next few months. We were lso joking about how one prominent person from the primary geo-political zones (known to the lay man as tribes) will be assassinated. Now that we have 2 Yoruba dead, one from Lagos, one from Ekiti, we should either expect a reply with more and also expect one or two prominent Igbo politicians, one or two from the North and perhaps a token Edo or Calabar politician to mak eit a pot-luck of heads and eyeballs. Don't mean to trvialize the matter BUT that's the reality that should be expected with the way things are BEGINNING TO LOOK.
Why? Why? Why my people? Why do we resort to this violence all in the name of gaining power. Wasting off people just because they are in your way. I really don't know what else to say about this. And since they can find my address online, I think I should better shut up before ya'll hear that Addy was found wrapped and bound in some gutter. Please that is not my portion in Jesus name so I shall leave this talk about politics to the crooked politicians and suffa-hea journalists who just like the look of jail cells. Me I am too much of an ajebAutta to suffer like that.
Speaking of ALLEGEDLY 'crooked' politicians, I was sent this ALLEGED list of Nigerian leaders and politicians who ALLEGEDLY stole from the national cake. Some on the ALLEGED list do not surprise me and others do. But my fellow country people what do you think about this ALLEGEDLY new list ALLEGEDLY from the World Bank. Is it reliable and are there some people who should be on there but are ALLEGEDLY missing. Please if you are going to ALLEGEDLY 'koba' anybody, I advise that you ALLEGEDLY be anonymous o. We can't have some ALLEGED mafia ALLEGEDLY outing Nigeria's ALLEGED future.
