Dancing Politicians

Nigerian politicians go out — they make noise, dance and sing gospel songs and later give out gift items and envelopes. Campaigns look much like huge wedding receptions. Very lavish.

But no one is telling us concrete plans to move us forward. No one seems to have a laid out strategy to salvage the state of the nation. No mission statement. No ethos.

So there’s not much too choose from in any case. Our political parties are the same people under different names. The average English Premier League football fan has a stronger sense of loyalty than the members of either the PDP or APC. Let’s not even talk of APGA and Labour Party.

But no one seems to be bothered. Make I go soak garri.
