To My Fellow Countrymen!


An epistle of conscience to Nigerian Youths; a people in dire need of emancipation from mental slavery. A clarion call to stall an impending repeat of an evil cycle.

1./ Politics may be a choice, but governance is not. Those who say they don't care about who leads them because they hate the dirt and evil of politics will reap without doubt the fruit of governance... whether good or bad. [Cont'd]
2./ According to Pluto, "one of the penalties of refusing to participate in politics in that you end up being governed by your inferiors". And these penalties we've suffered as a result of decades of a collective behavior of self-denial like the proverbial ostrich.
3./ Leaders and those whom they lead are collaborators of some sort whether they realize it or not. We keep blaming the "Few" for the woes upon the "Masses" while the Powers wielded by the "Few" has always been the birthright of the "Masses" relinquished at will. [Cont'd]
4./ And like Esau & Jacob and their drama as narrated in the good book, the "Few" keep engaging the "Masses" every fourth year on the threshing floor of blessings in a collaborative effort to exchange birthrights of commonwealth for a morsel of soup [Cont'd]
5./ Just because you do not take interest in politics doesn't mean politics won't take interest in you. And when politics plays without conscience, it churns out political jokes. And the problem with political jokes, according to Henry Cate, is that they get re-elected". [Cont'd]
6./ The 1st and 7th social sins to watch out as listed by Mahatma Gandhi are Wealth without work, and Politics without principle. Today we've redefined these sins on the alter of tribal sentiments, religion and party solidarity. [Cont'd]
7./ Why should we be stuck with utter impotence when democracy has given us choice? If democracy is true, then we the youth must begin to ask the right questions & according to Mark Twain see "Politicians as diapers that should be changed often, and for the same reasons"[Cont'd]
8./ Aren't we "trusting too much" these fellows masquerading with brooms and umbrellas as though they have the magic wands to solve all our problems. Can't we take our destinies in our hands to hire and fire at will those who've shown ineptitude in character and actions. [Cont'd]
9./ According to James Allen in his book "As A Man Thinketh", It has been usual for men to think and to say, "Many men are slaves because one is an oppressor; let us hate the oppressor." And so we keep exonerating ourselves from blames of our modern day slavery conditions[Cont'd]
10./ But we must change the narrative and reverse this judgment, and begin to say, "One man is an oppressor because many chose to be slaves; let us despise the slaves." This is a time to despise ourselves for letting our powers down and submitting to those who use us. [Cont'd]
11./ We must change the narrative if we must change the fortunes of this nation. Politics and wars are alike. Only politicians know it. The only difference according to Winston Churchill is..."In war, you can only be killed once, but in politics, many times." [Cont'd]
12./ It's time to fight for posterity. We'll leave petty sentiments and rise to stall an evil cycle. Let's engage "them" on facts and figures and shun every show of the herds mentality. We can't afford to let "them" bury our hopes for another 4 years.
