Running from the law. Corrupt acquisition of property. The judgement day has come. Hiding the autos from investigation. A la Nigerian politician’s style.
Yorubas have seen the very best of govenance right from pre independence to post independence Nigeria. Chief Obafemi Awolowo who spearheaded the effort to move the western region as first among other regions did it wholeheartedly.
It was in that era that the words were coined. ‘Oselu and ojelu’. Those who govern serving the people against those who govern serving personal interest.
Nationally for over fifteen years, what we got in governance are the ojelus, those that milk the cow dry. What is it they’ve not done?
It is really that bad. The thing is no matter how smart you think you can fool people, you will definately end up fooling yourself big time. They have come to the end of their game. Nigerians are wiser than all the OJELUS.
PDP government apart from the time of President Umoru Musa Yaradua who had a brief responsive government, the era of President Olusegun Obasanjo and that of President Goodluck Jonathan are era of ‘ojelu’. All they know is to “share the money”. Their call is a call to “come and eat”.
Now the power has changed hand to oselu, those who have come to deliever the goodies to the people. Though there is skeptism among the people. They are not sure if the CHANGE is real or not.
Once beaten twice shy. In fact the people have been beaten for far too long. One can understand their fear. It was that fear that resulted to voting aparty. Desperados would do anything to stay in power.
But today, Nigerians are happy apart from some section who are deeply sentimental. Happy to have our new incoming President Mohammadu Buhari. #NigeriansDesides to have “A REAL OSELU” of APC. The man on a journey to collectively create a NEW NIGERIA.

To say the situation is tensed is an understatement, I couldn’t believe so many things that are happening.
There would be no electricity for days, now it’s fuel scarcity, the value of dollar against naira keep increasing. Food price on the increase. Everything seems to be working in negativity.
And you begin to see branded clothing, bags of rice, bags of fertilizer, vegetable oil, satchet of salt etc, carrying the picture of the President distributed to hungry crowd.
This is not the way to empower people. But a cheat on the people. Above all, truth is becoming very scarce, likewise discipline.
I know for sure, where there is no discipline, there is no progress. There are scarcity of wisemen among those that administer affair of the nation presently.
Their wisdom make them very rich at the expense of the people. And they don’t give a damn, afterall what can the people do about it? Nothing it seems. They even believe the bolt and nut of the election is in their hand.
But “all days for the thieves but one day for the owner”
