So by now if you live in Nigeria, you have witnessed the Saga- or the sly moves of a recently Installed senate President for the 8th National Assembly of Nigeria. I was going to keep quite on the matter, but something struck me as amusing. I am sure you would be wondering what…
So this same senate President came from PDP to join APC. When he did that, no one was worried were they? So why would you think anyone joining your party for self interests has changed and put the said needs of the party above his or hers? The first reason they aligned with you was because of self interest, why would you expect any different? Oh some party power brokers thought they were divinely enthroned and he would serve party interests before serving his? Before i even forget, isn’t this the same man that went up against his own father publicly when his father opted to support his sister a few years back?
Loyalty is a scarce commodity in the world we live in, and even scarcer in climes like Nigeria where even the rich as still driven by hunger. People flipflop like they are changing underwear, and that’s where you expect loyalty? Anybody that can publicly switch from an alliance that at one time favoured them cannot pledge undying allegiance to you unless it favours them.
This is a life lesson for us as young human beings. People are allowed to change their minds on alliances – fair and square, but keep at arms length those who do not exemplify any set of principles outside of self interest. Also be observant of the alliances you bring into your personal life before they use you to play chess and you would have lost everything at that point. Be wary of people who stand for nothing but themselves, the more willing they are to cut others down to attain success, the more likely they will be ready to kill you to attain it. You my dear will not be special to the same person, you are just another means to an end.
Congratulations to APC on the beginning of Chaos within their party. I said it initially that APC was the lesser of two evils, but they have imbibed fully the PDP Amala Politics and even gone further. Lets see how much control the party kings have on President Buhari, because thats the tell tale sign of the governance we will have over the next 4 years.
Please share your thoughts on betrayal…on that note I am signing out singing Chris Brown’s “these hoes aint loyal”
Winners Wednesday is still Here. Today is the last day…
