Want to do a small thread on my thoughts... something happened last night and I have been thinking about it since. Let me share my thoughts with you on why bigots and their supporters are worse than Satan himself...
Issa thread 👇👇
Sometimes in April, I decided to gift myself a small car as a birthday gift to myself and I decided to buy from one lady who had been advertising cars for a while on the TL. I agreed to patronize her bcos I knew her a bit and felt I could trust her.
She was forthright and open with me but she didn’t understand the dynamics of importation that much, she leaned on some family member she could trust, the family member fixed her with some clearing agent in Lagos who happened to be an Igbo man.
Since April my car finally arrived last weekend in June and it took about 10days to clear. The story is that the clearing agent, an Igbo man messed up the business and swindled me over close to a million naira.
It took the grace of God for the car not to get lost because of a crooked agent. But to God be the glory I finally got my car registered yesterday. But that is still not the story.
The lady was mad at her family member for introducing her to a crooked and she vowed never to do business with another Igbo man. I had to tell her that it is not about tribe, it is about the man’s personality... but this is still not the story.
Last night, a young man I met here (haven’t met him in person yet just spoke on phone and via DM), spoke to me about his situation and I encouraged him to persevere and remain hopeful. I decided to go beyond mere words, but sent him some small cash.
I also thought what I gave him was too small, why don’t I see if others can also help him while he is still searching for a job. I brought the issue here and only two people responded. Now the next tweet is where the real story began.
The guy who was in need is an Igbo guy, a Christian and I didn’t even recall until I realized that the two folks who helped him were Hausa and were both Muslim.
What is the story... sometimes ago, one idiot, Jackson Ude came online to insult Yorubas, and just this week, JaJaPhd also came online to show his bigotry towards Hausas. But when there was a need, the people who stood up didn’t look at religion or ethnicity to to render help.
When I had issues with the scam agent, the lady I did business with is Edo, I am Yoruba but I didn’t go on twitter to deparage the man’s tribe bcos so believe he is a criminal and not his tribe and when those who stood up to help a guy did, they saw a fellow man not an Igbo man.
Moral of the story is that stupid people like Jackson Ude and Jaja who come here daily to disparage other tribes bcos they small issue with an infinitesimal numbers from those tribes are worse than Satan. Every man should be punished for his crime, not his tribe or religion.
Truth is we have criminals in every tribe and religion just as we have good people in every tribe and religion. When you have issues with someone, deal with it frontally but don’t drag his/her people along the mud bcos of your small mindedness.
We are the exact the image of what we paint others to be... God bless us all and have a lovely weekend....
