THE ADVENTURES OF SINators by Badiru Kehinde

Without doubt, I can imagine how tomorow’s dailies would be filled with witty & sugar-

coated array of articles and stuffs all in celebration of the Nation’s Independence, I do hope this

one gets there because the itching truth often don’t get applauded & noticed. For each year, I’v

engaged my Pen to say one or two things concerning the pitiable state of the nation.It’s time we

eat our sweet words & hit the nail on the head…It’s quite not surprising that even at 55, the best

the nation can offer is an adventure full of “SINators”, what a perfect timing.For…

In this wake of Political Rape,

…Parliamentary stupidity,

Economic hardship,

A prayer is all we can give.

Let’s Arise against the reign of spoilers,

Don’t get carried away by their rain of deception,

Let’s speak against ‘Pocket leadership’,

Only If You love remaining a beggar on your own spoils.

I’m tired of seeing our senators,

Becoming athletes,fenceclimbers & Mayweather…

A Prayer is all we can give

.But! But!! But!!!


‘We all pray for ourselves, how many of us pray for Nigeria’…It saddens to

know within me how the past heroes and patriots of the nation called Nigeria will

feel; for the nation they never wished to end up like this, for their legacies which

never lived more than their life time. Will their rest be in peace or in pieces?, Will

the fasting and prayers they made be in vain upon a nation that’s not in one string

concerned about praying for itself.

A nation where office miracle, pocket politics, stomach infrastructure, paper

intelligence is the culture and order of the system. A renowned writer; Sola

Owonibi said; ‘America prayed its way through to where it is now, where’s Nigeria

now?’. He continued; ‘History will never forgive some people’… Sure it won’t for

the time they had to pray for a dieing nation and they didn’t.
