Your best bet is to keep quiet and listen to the half gist from wherever you joined. If the opportunity to join in presents itself, feel free to join in.
But do that at your own discretion. Believe me, you don’t want them to wrap up the half gist and make you a full gist.
With hindsight, Nigerians would have been grateful for a sidegrade on Jonathan. By 2024, they would curse the president if he turns out as a sidegrade on Buhari.
Meanwhile, those who got paid to promulgate this propaganda are either in government, too rich to care, out of the country and away from this mess, complaining louder than everyone else, or dying in silence because of pride.
One question I am always fascinated to hear asked, is “who is in charge here?”
Whenever that question is asked, it is either a mess has been made, or a mess is about to be made. Why else would someone ask, who is in charge here?
You are a public office holder, not a public office. Can’t you tell the difference?
It is situations like this that make these officeholders unable to assimilate back into normal life when they exit their prestigious seats.
For all of us still single, in a relationship, or in an “it’s complicated-ship”, happy Valentine’s Day to us.
As for all those in their husbands, wives, or lovers’ arms, stop reading this. I have nothing for you. You know where to collect your own greetings.
When a governor announces that he has built 10 roads totaling 350 kilometers, at the rate of 5 million Naira per kilometer, no one asks how many people use that road daily. Nor where does the road lead to and what economic benefit it serves.
My only wish is that Nigerian Republicans and Democrats bring this same energy to our next election. We need it.
As much as we are affected by what goes on in Washington and London, we are impacted more by what happens in Abuja.
The press needs to stop this need to make politics exciting.
To help people keep an eye on the government, politics needs to remain “boring”.
The politician might be an orator or performer, that is not a license for the press to enable him to play to the gallery.
As you begin to wander into “off your mic” territory, you might notice that your microphone has gone mute. Don’t worry.
At least, we kept our promise. We never asked you to off the mic.
The Lekki Massacre of October 20, 2020, was the federal government of Nigeria and Lagos State government’s response to the #EndSARS protest and Sọrọ sókè movement that had been ongoing in the state for about two weeks prior.
When in 2006, African China released the song Mr President, the perspective then was that Nigeria was so bad, it would take a “miracle” to get any worse.
Ilu by Asa is a song I love but wish never existed. It is a piece of artistic brilliance, beautifully composed, yet reflecting the state of a highly deplored nation.
Do not allow yourself to get trapped in an echo chamber of your own creation, else you’ll be unaware of when the world moves on and leave you behind.
Cast your vote for people you genuinely believe in. Fortune does favors the bold. Fortune also favors the wise voters.
Oh God of creation,
Direct our Noble cause.
Guide our leaders right,
And if they insist on going left, leave them to Sango and Amadioha, let thunder Strike them.
Mr Ballot Box Snatcher, what’s up?
You have been paid to go on another snatching spree, you have been instructed on which polling station to disturb, you have picked your accomplices, please tell me, is it worth it?
The YMCMPP have come to the realization that one of the major things holding back this potentially great nation from progressing is unfaithfulness among lovers.
As much as thunder isn’t going around striking every deserving person right now, I’ll advise you don’t go around doing things that will make people pray “thunder strike you”.
You don’t want to be the person the strikes start with.
May we not be used to nonsense. May we not trade our expectations for crumbs. May our expectation not be cut short.
O God of creation,
Direct our noble cause.
Guide our leaders right,
Help our youths the truth to know.
And give them the wisdom to process this truth, the strength and boldness to act on this truth, and the will to vote for the right leaders, based on this truth.
How much is a dream worth? How much should a future be sold for? Even Martin Luther King and his dream, how much was it worth?
I wish every Nigerian going into this election can go with the mindset of No Shishi 4 Bribe. And stand by the decision.
Yes, the poor, destitute and illiterate are selling their votes for Naira and Kobo, but you young, strong, bright, talented and educated Nigerian, how much are you selling your future for?
It has come to our attention at the YMCMPP that as much as Nigerians love the festive seasons, the government of Nigeria at all levels doesn’t catch the festive spirit. At all.
There is a rising sentiment among Nigerians that the government should sell the country, share the proceeds, so we can all move on with our lives.
Despite how funny that sounds, a ridiculous amount of people are actually buying more into the idea daily.
They picked Akanni up one morning
Beat him soft like clay
And stuffed him down the belly
Of a waiting jeep.
What business of mine is it
So long they don’t take the yam
From my savouring mouth?
Fellow countrymen, we at the National Trekkers Union have decided to bring some things to public knowledge, so you all can be aware of why we take our next line of action.
We at YMCMPP believe that the time has come for Nigeria to build her own wall. It is going to be the tallest, grandest and most beautiful wall this planet has ever hosted.
To get any other job, you need a certificate, but when you run for the highest political office in Nigeria, you can gladly tell your followers “Who WAEC done help?”
Here at the Young Money Cash Money People’s Party, it has come to our attention that one of the biggest problem bedeviling our nation is that of distraction.
