The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked; who can know it? Ignorance of this truly explicit and indelible word is helping to under-develop Nigeria in this 21st century. Some of our politicians are best described as political cowards who speak from two sides of their mouth and act before thinking. Their deeds are underdeveloping us and therefore worrisome and wicked. They reflect the “Opposite Man” in all aspects of life. When they talk of democracy they mean dictatorship; when they speak of detribalization they signify ethnicity and religious fanaticism; when they say transparency and accountability they indicate secrecy and corruption; when they discuss competency they imply bad-apprenticeship; when they preach rule of law they connote rule of terror and impunity: when they shout peace they unlash violence; when they pronounce security they suggest crime and fear of crime; when they announce free and fair elections they saturate the whole place with guns and small arms and light weapons, entice the youths into political killing, propagate thuggrey, gangsterism and embark on do-or-die electioneering activities; when they proclaim loyalty they signify enslavement. But when you call for ideas they threaten and present excuses. We know why they stand excused! They cannot give what they don’t have. That is the reason why good people like you must come out to chase the bad people away through the instruments of ballot box. It is time for the good people of this country to come together to stop this underdevelopment of Nigeria through active participation in political activities. Don’t stand aloof; don’t sit on the fence. Remember, when the righteous rule, the people rejoice.
