Today is Ibrahim second birthday celebrations after October 4, 2019 deadly attack, it’s a reminder and lesson to all politicians ahead of 2023, and another celebration for thy Lord doings in his life.
What needed to be done after he narrowly escaped death on the fateful day; conciliation and reconciliation was done before the general elections while others remains inconclusive such as implied appointment consideration as observed.
Whether the promise of appointment made to him will materialise or a complete deceit popularly known as a political statement, regardless all political stakeholders; supporters, followers and sympathizers should bear it in mind that no politicians, political party’s worth anybody precious blood sacrificing in 2021 or 2023.
The late Fela Anikulapo kuti song” Mr. Follow follow” is a national anthem to all politicians, supporters, followers ,and associates, must not forget when going to political meetings, general Assembly, Congress, party primaries and general elections.
It was Ibrahim, Oromidayo Balogun, others over 15months ago that experienced the horrible attacks. It can be anybody next before you become the next victim tomorrow’s, lets borrow ourselves digital brain by knowing that our aspiration, ambition or interest must not be pursued through human blood directly or indirectly but with chicken or goat meat and jollof rice only.
These scenario abound in all political parties. Its a threat to our security and public peace even far worse more than bandits, kidnappers and herdmen menace. The solutions to all these man made not devil made problems lies with the politicans by embracing internal democracy and shun the do and die politics. Rather than winner takes all, win win situation should be embraced to reduce or stop opposition or rebel within the same party to promote unity and cohesion.
Take away: had it been Ibrahim kicked the bucket over 15months ago, his birthday today would have been posthumous celebration among family, friends, associates and community who remember him. However, it’s celebration of life and God protection.
Today marks 1year, 3 months, 8 days the sad event took place. Joy like a river would have been flowing in his soul today had it been after the severe pains he suffered and the purported true reconciliation he was given political consideration. Surely, on this special occasion his consolation will only be when there’s life, there is big hope.
