Several years ago , my niece(of american accent) was having a conversation with my nephew( of british accent …)she asks in the typical american way “what are you doing?”( whayouduwin?) my nephew goes “ahn?” she decides to take it slowly ….wha – r – you- duwin? his reply ? “e-in”which should mean “eating” ,my niece goes “what?”and he decides to say it slowly “eeee -in”!LOL!! everytime i remember that incidence , i have a good laugh cos …THEY WERE BOTH SPEAKING THE SAME LANGUAGE BUT DID NOT UNDERSTAND EACH OTHER …
first of , if any nigerian does not understand that we could be at the brink of major crisis , he is either ignorant, not a nigerian or plain dead !( no offence intended)
so much tension in 9ja right now , insecurity being a major issue, one of the duties of any sane government is to provide at least some security for her people… where is SECURITY ? At this moment we are not exactly sure if the map of the country called Nigeria is as is…we live in fear of robbery and other vices. Students live in fear of graduating and joining the “society of the unemployed “! NO SECURITY!
unless u only fly inter state, our roads most likely “lead to hell”!what with major potholes, police “check points”, robbers “checkpoints”, reckless tankers ….. what of NEPA ( or should i say YEPA!) , on my way to work i see children in their school uniforms … and containers …. looking for water to take home before heading to school …BASIC AMENETIES SCARCITY ?
so what do our elected do ? the way out for them is mega genarators to counter NEPA, the god mother of boreholes to counter water scarcity ….. ONLY IN THEIR DWELL…. and the grandfada of bullet proof SUV’s to counter the road issue….what can we call this but the elects’ CHOPICITY?
do i need to say anything else about chairman’s ABILITY?
my dear friend said to me “why are people fighting this physically , when it should be on their knees?” i asked her “have you been praying for 9ja before now?”yes she replied . then i asked “IS UR GOD DEAF OR HARD OF HEARING ?”her reply ?not printable!LOL!
no offence , but Elijah asked the baal prophets same question when they could not get answers to their prayers, didn’t he ???LOL
the patriach had told his children that their descendants will be in bondage for 400 years , according to history , they were for 430 years … a GENERATION more……..selah!,meaning think hard about it !
if we look through history ( even as written in the holy book ) every time God came to man’s rescue, there was the God-part and man-part of the deal ….. whether it was at the red sea, the walls of jericho, jehoshaphat’s army,the miracle at cannan-galilee,rebuilding the walls of Jerusalem, the shunamite woman ,the widow of the prophet who left debt behind as inheritance ,paul and silas…. i cud go on !
WE CANT JUST SIT BACK , FOLD OUR ARMS AND WAIT FOR GOD TO DO SOMETHING …. WHILE WE DO NOTHING ….. IF THAT IS GOD’S MODUS OPERANDI, I WILL NOT HAVE NEEDED TO READ LIKE CRAZY FOR MY BACHELORS…, I WOULD HAVE SPENT THE YEARS PRAYING , AND FASTING SEF !
look! i agree that we cant TAKE THE LAW INTO OUR OWN HANDS ….( wont that be like cutting ur nose off to spite ur face ?) but there are things that can be done within the CONFINES OF THE LAW AND CONSTITUTION ( if u claim to pray for the nation , and dont have a copy of the constitution , u never start o ..AND DAT IS THE TRUTH!!!) I SUPPORT SUCH !
men and brethren , we are all speaking the same language although we dont seem to understand each other ….. I BELIEVE IN “LET GOD ARISE AND HIS ENEMIES BE SCATTERED “, I ALSO BELIEVE IN “ARISE ( NOT GOD, YOU!) AND SHINE ( NOT GOD, YOU!) FOR UR LIGHT IS COME !
In the words of JC “the Spirit will GUIDE YOU INTO ALL TRUTH !”
like my dear niece, i ask albeit slowly , concerning this Country called Nigeria…..WHA – R – YOU -DUWIN?
