There’s a problem with social media and it’s limitations. And also there’s a problem with the readers and users of social media platforms (but I can’t really blame them much). Reason why I won’t is because , I don’t expect anyone to spend too much time reading lengthy things 1/
When they are faced with near extinction because the country that they are being forced to love has never shown them love . How do you get people who feel like that to show love to the same entity that has never shown them love? It would be sin to force them to 2/
More like asking a person who’s faced with imminent expulsion from a covering over their head to cling to morality&not probably engage in commercial sex work or maybe a loved one is in a hospital and needs immediate health care attention. It would be wicked to ask them that 3/
These are the reasons why I don’t judge anyone. No affordable and available healthcare . No roads. No electricity. No jobs. Imagine if 20+million jobless people decides to take to crime, no where and nobody would be safe. But then again, those that have jobs , how far them ? 4/
Which brings me to an issue that I noticed here. (See attached screenshot from @ajommuo ) .

I read it and I knew there was more to the message being passed. But because he @AMADICHIMA understood the emotional quotient of many, he pulled it down. He didn’t want to offend any 5/
Was late #adewura a chartered accountant ? Yes ! Do you think she couldn’t have gone ahead and toed the path that many of her peers toe today and possibly own a car of her own and save herself the stress and discomfort of Okada riding ( considering the story she was on a bike) 6/
She wasn’t loud or acting like her peers. She chose a career path and took the pains that came with it and hoped that one day she’d enjoy the fruits of her labors. Perhaps even tell others the story of her struggling and okada riding days to and fro work till she made it 7/
But no! She didn’t ! Her country and Govt failed her and her family and all of us. @AMADICHIMA must have wanted to draw out these points first and show fellow Nigerians the fulitility of being a Nigerian. But no! We aren’t a patient people at all! Burn him at the stake 8/
Why ? Oh yeah ! He’s defending prof Mahmoud of @inecnigeria therefore he’s an enemy of nigeria.

Did anyone take time to read his following tweets after his launching pad tweet ? No! Who has time kwanu? Burn him at the stake is what mattered. Show ourselves as holier than him 9/
This reminds me of @adeyanjudeji tweet back then “buhari means well” . People didn’t bother to put into consideration that @Twitter allows you 140 characters then. All they wanted was a piece of his head. Just like the Roman mob always baying for blood. 9/
I believe that if we as Nigerians can come together and calm down , and listen to each other or at least as this platform provides , read each other to completion beyond just 140/160 characters we will be able to figure out how best to fix our country. 10/
I guess I’d stop here and say this as a closing remark ; the enemy is not many of us here but the system that has been designed by political elements to subjugate us as a people and has taught us to not have patience to understand each other.
