“He has lost the greater chunk of his sanity that steals, loots and amasses wealth he wouldn’t exhaust in ten life-times had he lived them in reasonable comfort. Greed inexplicable is insanity and unbridled looting psychiatric.” – Prof. Chris Nwaokobia Jnr. I read about politicians criss-crossing from Party A to Party B. I read about the oft empty logic and reason for such frequent decampings. I read somewhat strenuous efforts by some to present their political harlotry as pro people. I wonder why these men speak from both sides of the mouth, and I marvel why they all too often return to their vomit. Some have gone back and forth twice or thrice and some will yet move, yes it is their inalienable right to so do BUT to present a self-driven decision as altruistic and people oriented is where I disagree. Money and power humbles and calls men in other climes to responsible conduct alas in our clime it mimes the tune of graft, of greed, of ignoble quest for political position cum positioning, of thieving, of oppression and of reckless tendencies within the corridors and frontiers of power. I was thought as a Law Student some 20years ago that as one ages and closes the gap between one and hades the tendency to do wrong, lie or give false evidence diminishes, this legal protocol is called a ‘dying man’s declaration’ BUT in Nigeria men loot and steal in their 60s, 70s and 80s, they loot as though stealing is right, and they fleece resources they do not need in ten life-times such defines their mental state. Methinks that the preponderant number that trots our political amphitheatre if subjected to psychiatric tests will fail, that I am sure of. To be CONTD.
