His end shall be like that of Esau who for a bowl of porridge traded his birthright.
The only thing Demola owes Tolu is PITY.
A call from someone last night on an issue and this Tolu foolishness stir me to share it now.
With the Ogunlesis of this world, there are no such lines.
When a leader whom I love so much left PDP, I didn’t follow him - I knew why I am where I am and my decisions were guided by principle.
What will make a young man, whom I have no qualms admitting we once admired as one of the brightest of our generation, look down upon himself so much as to be an attack-dog for Buhari?
Some of us see ourselves differently even in relating with leaders.
I’ve seen them fight too many territorial battles, I’ve seen them scramble for money and I’ve lost respect for them that I wouldn’t if they had never joined us.
They have no principles.
He wants to interview a candidate, I told the candidate and shared his number with Nick.
Candidate refers Nick to his media aide - a professional journalist - and stupidity starts.
Many of them are reaching out to some of us clandestinely to ensure that History will record that at least they tried to rebel, but not Tolu.
He has my pity but I share his lessons because the idea of professionals in politics is something I love; but they must understand politics.
I have never ass-kissed with any political leader and I will never - it’s not pride, it’s dignity and understanding of one’s role.
My loyalty to any politician is only based on mutual respect, shared goals and shared values.
I said I hadn’t known it would hold and wasn’t invited - he said “Do you need any permission to come to your father’s house?”
I laughed and apologised and we moved on.
So even when they send us to do the tasks of slaves, we add our value of sonship to it and deliver results even better than if we had done it slavishly.
Let Tolu come and learn from us...
“What is the worst thing your principal will do that will make you resign?”
They had no answer.
“Okay; if you want to resign, how will you go about it?”
They mumbled incoherently...
And this is why I think it is too late to learn.
But even from their doggy behaviour and slavish mentality, we can learn and what we learn, we must share for others to learn from:
Before you ever go into politics or accept any position politically, develop your own ideals, principles and values.
These things will be your guide when access to power, money or popularity try to lead you astray.
But who is kissing ass? Who is being foolish and who is burning bridges in an effort to secure his position?
As dog of the king that thinks himself the king of dogs?
I feel only pity for him
“Why don’t they send Bashir to come after Demola? Bro, why you?”
The answer is because the ‘enjoyment’ an Abobaku receives while in position is because when the king dies, he dies too.
And Abobakus Never Reign on the Throne.
