Kosalabaro: Dear Heart, if you want peace, don’t harbour evil thoughts about your leaders, do not gossip about your politicians, do not backbite, do not hold grudges against people in government, do not quarrel with your governors.”
Okebadan: And don’t live in Nigeria!
Okebadan: Ask women in the house first, then come to a football viewing centre or Temiyemi Beer palour for the guys.
Kosalabaro: Hummm, men love being men, I’m almost sure women also love being women. It is sweet to be a woman. Yes, pregnancy can be mean and menstrual pain beastly, but only women know how to deploy those conditions to an advantage and even milk it. Never mind all their groaning and grumblings. Most of the girls don’t want to be anything else but women because of politicians’ generosity towards them.
Women have all the luck, all the power, because that is the way God wants it to be. They have convinced the politicians and the rest of us that they are the weaker sex and they have made a song of it. It is music in our ears. May we continue to believe and may the girls remain in power.
I know somebody’s ulcer is acting up already but that is the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.
Okebadan: That’s why it is good to be a politician and a Governor to be precise. So that I will have all the time to steal enough money to take care of all these extra bags, organize a wedding party all over the world and refuse to pay workers salaries.
As a business man, you need to think twice and look at your pocket. I think Nigeria needs its own Wikileaks. We need to know what those governors are earning. The way they have been behaving like they have bees in their bonnets is sad. All they really need to do is tell us how much they earn instead of all the ‘turenchi’ and grandstanding about the source of their sudden wealth. When people have the kind of money at the disposal of Nigeria’s governors, their fantasy has no boundaries.
Kosalabaro: Before you go, let us pray for Senator Bukola Saraki and former governors, Dariye of Plateau State, Ajimobi of Oyo State and all the governors that made the headlines of Nigerian newspapers of recent;
that the prayers of masses and their wishes will come to pass over them (bi ase nfe bee na lo maa ri).
May all those who have stolen our money never go unpunished.
May God’s judgment come upon all those who have destroyed the wealth of Nigeria, thereby putting people into problems. May all those mortgaging the future of our youths and children be punished as God’s judgment descends on them.
Okebadan: I dey sleep.
Kosalabaro: When you wake up remember to say amen.
