What is it with these #LagosUnrest #OgunUnrest and #IbadanUnrest reports that we're hearing?

#Covid19, among other things, has come to expose the underbelly of the dysfunctional country/society we have run for years.
The time has come for us to #rethink how we do things as a society.

The time has come to consciously begin to question the basis/foundation of our existential realities.
First, it was #NigerDeltaUnrest. Then came the lingering #BokoHaram insurgency.The #2016Recession, occasioned by the dip in global oil prices, also came. Now, the #Covid_19 pandemic has come to expose the unsustainability of the model of our political-economy.

Day #6

Magnets Holding Down Memories
On Refrigerator Doors

One drawer at a time
I reacquaint myself
With my home

Memories come back
Gifts, photos, coins, notes
Birthdays cards
Years old

Time has flown
I think to myself
Presence of people
Waxed and waned 1/3
Like the the phases
Of the moon
The refrigerator door
Remembers more
About my life
Than I do

Holidays merged
Into workdays
Into weekdays
So many
So many lines
And timelines
A life

Slow down
Erase those lines 2/3
Relish, while you can...
Let time merge
Bake that cake
Beat that coffee
Put those feet
Today... β˜• 3/3

I'm going to say it again.

I'm sick of the term "border security." It means nothing but militarization.

A border is a national asset. Used wisely, it enhances prosperity. Otherwise, it's a liability.

The most "secure" border is one that doesn't need a wall.

It is time for all of us to push back against this contrived political term. A Newspeak term coopted to limit debate, and enhances neither prosperity nor security.

We've tried it their way for years, and this is where we are. No: there's a better way.
And it starts by rejecting the framework created by those who don't share our vision of an inclusive America.

Looking at you, FAIR, CIS, NumbersUSA, IRLI, PFIR. The #TantonNetwork. (Don't know about it? Well, it's responsible for all this horror.)
