There’s a famous story from Panchtantra (a children book) called- The goose that lays the golden eggs. I am sure that you might have heard this story. Anyways, let me briefly summarize it:
Once upon a time, a man and his wife had the good fortune to have a goose which laid a golden egg every day. Lucky though they were, they soon began to think they were not getting rich fast enough.
They imagined that if the bird is able to lay golden eggs, its insides must be made of gold. And they thought that if they could get all that precious metal at once, they would get mighty rich very soon. So the man and his wife decided to kill the bird.
However, upon cutting the goose open, they were shocked to find that its innards were like that of any other goose. Thus the greedy couple lost both the goose and golden eggs and became poor again.
The end is pretty sad, right? How can someone be so stupid to kill the goose that laid the golden eggs?
However, this happens every day in our community. Yes, there are tons of people who find these goose that lays golden eggs, but instead of keeping, they kill the goose.
In this post, we are going to published Oworonshoki resident narratives on how the goose that lays the golden eggs was cut off from the National Electricity grid installed in Oworonsoki , Area of Kosofe Local government.
The Goose that lays the golden eggs: First of all, you need to understand what we are referring to the term- goose that lays the golden eggs.
Here, goose means Oworonshoki ,National Electricity grid installed for power supply (golden eggs).
in the appeal statement sent to Kosofe Post by a concerned citizen Mr. Folarin Join said :
“Please help us to feel the impact of democracy in Oworonsoki. The suffering is too much. Going out and coming in is horrible. All the roads are seriously bad. Folarin said.
The National Electricity grid installed in Oworonsoki is not connected to serve the people in OWORO.
Speaking further on the golden eggs of the National Electricity grid he said”Its extended to Bariga and other areas. Why are people in OWORO made to suffer all this hardship.”
“The Chairman Kosofe should please intervene on this issues”, Folarin pleads.
