What haven't we see, hear or heard about Nigeria and its leaders in power. Yet we say we don't have good actors and actress in Nollywood, but believe me we have them among our politicians who are chosen to lead and rule.

But has turned into acting in their respective's offices. Only the display of drama is what we do witness from them all the time. They play in the pitch like as footballers while we the general publics watch them because we are the “spectators”. In recent times, we see our leaders act drama in the chambers! In House of Representative, Senate, House of Assembly, throwing blows to one another and using chairs to fight.

At times I am really surprised at the whole scenario on who is actually writing the scripts for them to act(but I guess is MONEY, the script writer). All this is absolutely distraction so as to deviate the minds of the general publics on the things which they failed to have accomplished. We hear the same story on the Tv media every now and then. You ask me? What are their aims of doing all this, simply to distract and create attentions.

They turn their political parties to the centre of attraction. Different stories and dramas escalate's every day in their various ministries. Only to those who don't know what Nigerian politics is all about could get interested or been caught up with their misdeeds sympathetic acts and dramas. For me, I am never moved by their dramas. From governors forum's drama, to minister of aviation Mrs stella Oduah's propaganda/accusation of purchasing two(2) BMW armored cars with a whopping sum of 225m naira. And to new faction of PDP and  joining of a new party APC.

Then to $49b from crude oil which the NNPC did or have failed to pay in into the federal government's account. And to mandating of the academic staff union of university lecturers (ASUU) of going back to classrooms or face sack. We equally have the judicial arm(court) of finding Mr Bode George guilty. Then to the supposed leaked 19 page or whatever letter that was sent to Mr President Dr. Goodluck Jonathan by the formal president Gen Olusegun Obasanjo, all just to keep us busy while they are looting money. With lot more and more that I can not go on and on and on and keep telling you. Don't allow such things to fool you because they are simply playing politics.

They play away precious time and moments which they can or could use to better the country, states and communities to be a better place for the general publics who voted them in to achieve good results. They rather simply prefers to use symbol of leadership(maze) to break colleague's heads all for fame, pride, ambition, power and acting, therefore living their main objectives, its bizarre. A particular governor in one state but I won't mention the state: he draws his own attentions by breaking the roundabouts that he built in every two-two(2)months intervals! Oh God help us.

 Tell me, if the formal president had wished to have send the letter to Mr president Goodluck Jonathan his successor without any attentions of the general publics, he would have done so in peace and quiet but opposite is the case because they want to create attention. How many of such informations that they have been receiving and sending before, do we used to hear? None I must say. Who is deceiving who? Na them Sabi. Our politicians should grow up and stop all these their acts  and dramas because we are not interested and will never be.

Our dear country's politics is not interesting in joining because is full of lies, deceits, killings, stealing and so on. Remember, whatever you sow in the morning, that you “MUST” surely reap at night or whenever it is time to harvest. So don't play around thinking you are fooling the publics because at the end you will end up been disappointed. When you surprise someone at a time he or she never expected for such things! Hmm, you will end up with the biggest blow of surprising your own self. Who leave's in a glass house don't throw stones but if he or she is foolishly enough to dare throw stones then he or she should be ready for the repercussions.

Acquire the whole earth for your family and generation, you will and “MUST” surely die. Six fit under the ground we must enter, and only if you are lucky can you enter it. Therefore, can we have a rethink. A man said: he works hard to make money and be well to do but he is always conscious in other not to allow money to control him. A word is enough for the wise. May God bless us all as we try to change our ways. By .
