Politicians are bad

10 June 2014, 10:02 Jibunor George Chuks

Politics, a lucrative business or whatever we might call it. Every man and woman in the country wants to join into politics so as to make them have easy access of making money. Although, the rich ones among them are the smart, intelligent, educated, famous, dubious and so on. These above mentioned qualities are the vital favors you must possess in other to achieve your goals speedily. But it is not a must, that you will possess all the above mentioned qualities before you breakthrough.

To the dull ones, jas, rituals and charms are also in play. At times, the intelligent, smart, dubious and so on, equally indulge in this act of charms, jas and rituals. All the reasons are to quickly have a breakthrough in the politics. I am not against politics but what I am against is the road people follow and the part they play in other to succeed in politics! Wrong. Now, the title of this article is “Politicians are bad” remember that we did not say that politics are bad but those who play it that are known as politicians are the bad in quote.

Let's look at another angle; Lecturers, market men and women, bankers, medical personals and so on. What can we say about this people; are they different from politicians? Well, if ask me, No. Many may say, why this answer from the writer. We have lecturers who go un-strike for close to half a year, and still are well paid with allowance. Work-done is equals to zero but yet huge amount of money was spent on the no work-done. These lecturers, comes to office by 10am and lives around 1pm. Maybe in a week only 4times. Now calculate this out; 3x4=12hours spent in a week. 12hours in a week times 4weeks in a month, 12x4=48hours in a month.

And these fellows will be fully paid for work half done. That's not all, the most painful part of it all is that this same lecturers will go again and make a handbooks (containing list of executives in the department, school time table and other unnecessary things) and this handbook will be compulsory for all students to buy before you submit your course form during registration, at the price of six hundred naira (600naira). Please who are calculating all this and who is condemning this people. So dubious and bad. What about the bankers or the market men and women who twist or bends the sales of their products just to suit their desire or brings bad and cheap products and hikes the prize. Bad people are everywhere and in every offices and sectors. It is better we generalize this than condemn some selected group. God help us.
