Let me call on my fellow
Nigerians to 'investigate' thoroughly into speech made by anybody, before sharing or taking action.
Let's all start ignoring
dubious statements made by people who utter them to achieve certain goals and their personal interests not for development of the masses.
Already, the whirling of
false informations and opinions have been going wild on social media leading to war of words. The most terrible part we are not hoping is the domino effect,
which may result to violent and prejudicial actions by the youth, or any
political violence. The youths are motivated by hatred and bigoric speeches, but
their gullibility won't allow them to understand the fact before taking actions.
The questions are: Why
shouldn't they (our leaders) express themselves in a manner that maintain peace and absolute tranquility in the country? Why are we blindly using what they say as evidence, to attack each other whilst their children never partake in any agitation, prejudicial actions, or any political violence? Not even their close relatives!
Some speeches will only
motivate people who are never preparing for vengeance, to later develop strong desire for it. There is
no doubt that believing with every statement that hit our eardrums without
investigation, will rev the issue of insecurity in our country.
Had we been looking at even
the persons speaking, their reputation, what they've done before; we wouldn't
have waste our times concentrating on trash they are vomiting.
Why do we dance to the tune
of people who are of questionable characters? They contributed immensely in destroying and undermining our country. But we are here believing
Believe me, some of them
are very plausible. They are speaking with a forked tongue, spewing lies and unprintable statements, such that you can
hardly ignore their speeches because they seems very true. Never let any of their statement makes you obtain an enemy.
Although, in spite of their
vices, they may say the truth on some issues.
However, newspapers are
mostly involved in exaggerated claims as there is no veritable fact about many
things they propagate. Some online media are fabricating lies to gain traffic on their websites. On the other hand, print media are portraying lies
on paper headlines to sell out quickly.
Some stories sounds more
like folktale than reality. Judge any story by it's authenticity not by how true it seems to be. My fellow Nigerians, investigate that story before
sharing or taking action.
