IT’S A LIE! – Adewale Sobowale

Come off it!
That’s my response to a friend who told me it’s pay day for some of our excretable excellencies. They really don’t belong to us again.

It’s not as if we are doing yanga. But considering how they’ve been behaving since they went into the prison called state house, I wouldn’t think they’ll feel safe in our company.

Safe ke?

We don’t have security for them.

Neither can we offer them the state dinners for which they were renowned in their time.

In their time?

So ti ya tan niyen?

That’s the major thing about power. You have it for an infinitesimal period of time. It’s now left for you to use it to impact the lives of the people.

Most especially, the common folks!

And the interesting thing is that the hoi poloi, who are the majority, do not need much for them to be satisfied.

In fact, most of the things these people need are the essentials of life. I mean the basic things that will make life habitable for them.

However, due to the fact that they are essentially impoverished, politicians play them against the other. Curiously too, they’ve chosen to be in a state of unawareness.

And that’s where the rulers gain the upper hand!

At the end of the day, basic things like potable water, electricity, good roads, cheap food, social security, health care, and so on elude the have nots.

Meanwhile, their rulers are having a nice time spending what should have belonged to the commonwealth on one frivolity or the other.

But then, the poor folks will still be fighting over which politician is the richest.

A dilemma therefore presents itself for those who know better and feel the situation should change.

Yes, change for better!

Are the people ready for change?
