So hello everyone. Its almost the weekend, the 2nd saturday of 2015 whereby almost no Nigerian will get married. You got that right. Many people will be in their homes either choosing not to vote, or others will go out and vote. Of the voting people, some will take their chance and go out with the life jackets, rafts, and home made boats.
Whats the paragraph above about? So the Oba of Lagos has made himself god and decided that Ambode must rule Lagos. Whoever goes against the will of this self imposed god will be sentence to a life of drowning. He specifically singled out the Igbos. Does even Ambode believe that much in his own right to be governor?
I am afraid to go out and vote at this rate. I can pass for an Igbo person. Forget the curly hair, Igbo is what most people see when they see me. Unfortunately i dont have the money to buy a life jacket as we speak, so is it worth the “rix”? Then again i might just turn into a mermaid and swim away if they try to drown me in the lagoon. And be like “dem try to drown us for lagoon, dem no know say we be mammy water”!
Seriously i want to say shame on the oba of Lagos for inciting tribalism. Dont these people get tired of hatred? Dont they get tired of separating the country? I am a Lagosian..at least 50% is approximately 1, and i say categorically, the oba’s statement was uncalled for. Traditional leaders, community leaders and clerics should stay out of politics.
As for the candidates, my thoughts are basic…i am not convinced by Ambode, and while i like the Jimi Agbaje jingle on the radio, PDP isnt quite it. In a fantasy Nigeria within the current parameters, i would have made Jimi Agbaje the APC candidate and maybe checked if Ambode would float if placed in the lagoon.
Please whatever your decision, safety first, then your civil duty. Please choose wisely and make sure you believe in whatever it is these candidates are selling us. Remember some of these people have dual nationalities, so they are free to wreck Nigeria and run away. Some dont even run, they majestically walk around like peacocks.
