My ageing country

22 August 2014, 11:48 Jibunor George Chuks

Which rate is our country driving at! The country is moving at the rate of slow motion in some areas. The progress of the country is at slow motion while the other phase of the country that drives with speed is corruption and different types of evil. Every sector in the country is so corrupt that about 60-70% of people no longer see it as an unusual act for someone to be caught in a fraud act, rather, its an applauded thing.

And the victim might equally got praised and celebrated. Rich politicians are the drummer beaters while the poor are the dancers. I want to ask; to what are they dancing for? I hate election period in the country, because it is a point where poor men and women sell's their right of power to a miserable cheap cup of rice. You can't eat your cake and still feels stupid thinking you are still holding it. A cake you have eating is no more, therefore, wake up from slumber and stand for your right now when it matters and count.

The masses right time to hold politicians are the election period. God is against His children swearing in His name, but I believe that even Him can understand that we want to hold our politicians on account for their deeds. Therefore, we must make them take a vow with God on what their mandates are, well specified and read out, even for an average man that is casting a vote for him to understand before voting for them. If they choose to keep their vow to God or break it, that's now left for them, for it is now a score to settle with God. Let the voting masses wise up and don't sell their votes to criminals who pretends to be leaders with sight; rather, they are blind touts with no visions and ambitions. God help us.
