“Truth will remain so no matter the ferocity and the intensity of falsehood thrown at it by naysayers and jesters” – Prof. Chris Nwaokobia Jnr.
Sometime last year I was lampooned for saying that falsehood occupies a chapter in policy defense by lazy Government Spokespersons in Nigeria. If Senator Alli Modu-Sheriff wasn’t part of Mr. President‘s entourage to Niger, then he must have been on a private visit at the Nigerien Government House when GEJ visited..abi wetin make I talk, na APC and Boko Haram take am pisure for there, as dem say e no follo dem go naa, mtchew!!! Laff wan kill my enemy.
It is madness, manifest psychosis and profound psychiatry to lie in the defense of visible State error. The lies that attended late President Yar’Adua‘s ill health in his dying days made a good man like him appear a villain in death, falsehood diminishes and chicanery consumes every vestige of goodwill, no matter how much is paid to TAN a product only truth can redeem it.
President Jonathan’s Transformation Ambassadors of Nigeria TAN isn’t doing him any good, even if they develop 20m signatures asking him to run in 2015, will they TAN the Energy Sector to fulfill GEJ’s promise of 18hours power supply? Will they TAN corruption from a present high to a minimum? Will they TAN down insurgency and impose a new state security scorecard on the nation? Will they TAN the Boko Haram Caliphal flags flying in the North East to the Green White Green?
Countrymen and women the primary essence of government is the protection of lives and properties, to excuse the failure of government in this wise and blame the supposed enemies of government and the opposition for such failure is madness.
And it is madness for the opposition to trade blame rather than articulate a viable alternative to this psychosis. Sad.
