"GET INVOLVED, MAKE US INTO A TEAM, WE ARE ONE"
No criminal element will ever come forward to confess to being the perpetrator of the crime: rather, if he has the means as most of our criminals have, he would employ the most politically-connected SAN to plead his innocence. He would fund the needs of the media houses, fighting the impending financial stresses caused by the economic down-turn; using their public relations unit to up-grade his tarnished image.
That is the nature of the defamed Nigerian political beast struggling for survival. Many of these species abound on our political landscape, as former heads of state, ex-military officers turned politician-harlots and recently, they are being projected as redeemers and not the instigators of the situation deliberately created by them to forment disunity among Nigerians.
There is only one final solution to these perennial problems, and it takes ruthless and fearless leadership to expunge this evil, which is bent on destroying our democracy. Is the current leadership ruthless and fearless enough to trust and rely on the oneness of our intent ? Are they willing, to round up these names we all know too well and acknowledge as culpable. There is no lifelong immunity for treasonable felony. and no protection against their inevitable fate!!! Trial, they must face, either here now or in the here-after before their Maker.
What most of us would prefer is the former, as this would best resolve the immediate tensions within our society. The climate is ripe and right for the execution of the scheme; for at no point in our history are Nigerians more aware and ready to collectively fight the scourge that is enslaving them: Witness the vigour with which they embraced the arrest, trial and conviction of the Bode George criminal mafia and the exposure, by Sanusi of the corrupt gang of bankers led by Akingbola and Cecila Ibru.
So keep on fighting the good fight till the end of the road: Till thee of the day, for:
"I honour the place in you, in which the entire Universe dwells,
I honour the place in you, which is of love, of light of truth and of peace,
When you are in the place in you, and I am in the place in me,
WE ARE ONE"
