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,
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!!!
***”HOW OFTEN DO WE PRAY FOR NIGERIA”***
‘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.
