Democracy has been defined as government of the people for the people and by the people, but to one of the most intelligent and radical musician Fela Anikulapo Kuti; Democracy is Demo-Crazy -Demonstration of Craze. Looking critically at the definition of Democracy by the “Abami-eda” one would certainly appreciate his high level of creativity and foresightedness.
Since 1999, Nigerians have witnessed series of Drama in the name of Democracy and self governance; Lawmakers are the main actors while the “political-shift of post” is the suspense in the drama. Political players are the “BOSS” in disguise as political analysts.
Series of Law has been made, series of law been broken! -Democracy at work!
Sometimes, i wonder if many people see what am seeing? I wonder if some people really know the game being played by the “political players”….ah sorry, analyst. Just yesterday i see clearly what many people don’t see, i learnt another lesson through one of the drama acted by Ogun lawbreakers…sorry…lawmakers at Abeokuta and in Lagos.
I also see how political players canvass people to their side.
As a responsible person, i reserve my comment for another day -my comment to some political players who accused me of only reporting the new break and not taking side -why should i take side? is it not a news break? -you can only accuse me if it is an article and i know if the article don’t come to your side you will accuse me again!
All these people are political players not analyst; am a journalist not a politician and i don’t want some stupid political players dragged me into the “political-pit” that they are in now. I know where they belonged to in 1999, 2003, 2007 and where they are going in 2010. I don’t want people to push me to the wall but if you do this time “Kasala go bust”!
Please, let the sleeping Dog lie and let me do my work; dont persuade me to join you in the stincking water of ….poli-tric
As for those that don’t know much about them but just comment blindly…..facebook is an openn forum -think deep and ask questions……..as a journalist, am to show you the way not to take you there!
