POLITICS

A SORRY CASE FOR POLITICIANS 

A SORRY CASE FOR POLITICIANS 

                     PROLOGUE 

I feel sorry for the people who are yet to come because what I am seeing is a dystopia future ridiculed by some disagreements which are meant to be solved. Reality has been taken, and she has been replaced with illusion. Where is the future of this great nation? Buried or alive? Active or inactive? – – Akinrulie Opeyemi Joshua

    It started with the self-centered assumptions created, not for  the purpose of the vast majority, but a minor set of people who have been dictating as if they won’t die again, may be they thought they would not die again. Truth be told, no matter who you are you can’t bribe death because her mission is to betray mankind. I hope these politicians are preparing for the law of Karma before heaven will reward them the law of Karma has a mission to fulfill. 

  They have turned themselves into an untouchable fire with the aim of not stepping down  coupled with their sugarcoated proclamations which have been a deceptive paradigm to the people who voted them. Where is the humility they once had? Where is the loyalty they showed priorly? All in the name of power they forgot their vows and promises or have they reverted them? As a matter of fact, I am not here to judge any politician,what I am doing is to illuminate our thinking as regards the unknown future. Do we still have true politicians? 

   How honest are these politicians? If it has been assumed that politics is a dirty game. Hence, it’s the matter of death and life. Do not forget that the purpose of a game or any game is for one to be defeated, afterall, there must be a winner. Do you agree? In the case of politics, it’s a do or die affair, it’s in politics I see contenders appearing publicly with happiness, but in a room where no one sees the internal you will think such an individual is the best. The hope of this people is gone because they are tired of hearing and listening to the same assumptions. How truthful  are they? 

   How I wish the world can end herself by destroying herself without no consent, so that everyone will meet reality. I know it’s a hard decision because the rich won’t be in support of this agitation, but the poor will be the first to spearhead this agitation because they have nothing to gain or lose . – – Akinrulie Opeyemi Joshua 

     These politicians have turned a democratic nation to a monarchized nation. But why? I heard them saying, young shall grow. They have grown yet, they are impeding the ideologies which have been designed for the purpose of this nation. Optimism has joined pessimism, if that should be the case, what will be next and left for mankind? Yet, these politicians feel they can’t be touched, they haven’t seen anything,when the world is done she will leave them without notice and the  tears of the wounded souls will be their nomenclature. 

  Who am I to judge? Who am I to castigate them? Afterall, they are creatures created by the creator. As a matter of fact, if you think and feel you are untouchable, don’t forget about the word called touchable. It existence means you are not safe which makes you vulnerable at all times, so who are you to think you are whereas you are not. I am feeling sorry for politicians who are always thinking that they have life in all ramifications, in lieu of this, they should remember that the vacation that is about to happen will have no mercy. All good things will be arrested and all bad things will be released for the purpose of game over. 

 
They kept the correct visions for themselves and gave fake visions to the vast majority, what a deceptive alliance with the devil. They have turned democracy to cracydemo. – – – Akinrulie Opeyemi Joshua 

     What a pity that a good start will end with no memory, but a bad omen will be recorded in order to tarnish some good things. These politicians have brought pejoration into the hearts of the masses, they made the people to realize that democracy is an avenue to usurp money, not for the betterment of the state. Even if, the youths should take over, how are we sure that they won’t follow the vestiges of their forefathers? They have venomed the minds of the youths, and they are saying a dictum which says, “money must be made whether legal or illegal. 

   How will the future be? They have forfeited their promises, the people are lamenting and crying like a new born baby yet, nothing has been done to solve these deplorable conditions. However, the vast majority will still continue to walk in the wrong path which betrayed them, but I think they have encharmed by a deceptive light that seems good. It looks as if the main aim of politics is to keep brainwashing the people, don’t you think so? As a matter of fact, when a conscience is dead, it’s only death that has the power to give life to that conscience. Life reports to death, but death reports to herself. 

   What relevance will it be when conscience is dead? All what these politicians will be thinking is to establish their relatives at apex of everything, sanctimoniousness will be their way of life because they are unquestionable. When will equality have a mansion in their hearts? This is a sorry case not only for the politicians, it is also a sorry case for the vast majority. Have you heard that “once in power, forever in power”. This is their mantra, so tell me how they will leave their positions easily? If you allow power to overcome you, you will be blindfolded to get an everlasting power therefore you will have to dine  with the devil. 

  I hope they have embezzled enough money that will feed them in the  time of droughts, I hope they are planning for other ways because when truth wants to operate she will lock all alternatives and only one alternative will be left. They will feel like committing suicide, but suicide will also be punished for terminating many lives. Where are they going to run to? Church? Mosque? Shrine? None will be worthy to defend them. A sorry case will be their watchword. 

                     EPILOGUE 

I think I am going too far, perhaps this should be an article not a journal. The main aim of politics literally is to gain power for the purpose of oneself whereas it will look as if it’s for the purpose of the people. They will use deception in form of truth, but you know you can’t deceive truth, even bribery and corruption won’t last in her office. – – Akinrulie Opeyemi Joshua. 

“DEMOCRACY IS A LIAR “

“DEMOCRACY IS A LIAR “

     In order not to commit a fallacy I will discuss democratism as related to Nigeria because I can not generalize , if I should , it will be ‘argumentum ad ignoratiam(appeal to ignorance )’ . Democracy might be a good concept in other countries but in the case of Nigeria , it has become a powerful canopy for those who are in power . If democracy connotes a political freedom of people coupled with equal rights then, oneness will be a forever discussion but , in this situation people are seriously brutalized without pity because democracy is powerless . A government for the people is now a government for the few. What democracy preaches are equality , good governance , legitimacy , transparency , and fundamental rights etc . Are these acknowledged in Nigeria ? 

       Where is the real democracy ? A real democracy that will cater and consider the masses who are execrable in all situations . Democracy has become an umbrella and a broom of deception without the accordance of Nigerians . Is democracy a disguise ? Or is she a freedom fighter using deception as a tool of truthfulness ? Yet, some people are still clamoring about the trust they have for democracy  with the belief that she will rescue the aggrieved citizens of Nigeria. The  question is, when? How long will the citizens wait? Even some would have met death in the process of knowing the reality of democracy.  As a matter of fact , some are satisfied and some are not satisfied . The major problem confronting democracy is her inability to bring ‘equality’ to the masses . But , can equality live without prejudice ? 

  “Let’s be factual . Man created ‘democracy ‘ and if this is true , no doubt a sentimental act will be a priority so as to favour his personal thoughts . A real democracy won’t be ‘I’ only but the ‘WE’ will be like an everlasting covenant . ” — Akinrulie Opeyemi Joshua . 

      When would these  citizens learn from the deception of democracy ?  They will pretend as if they have learned from the mistakes committed, only to discover that they have been cajoled by the sugarcoated utterances of the people they have condemned. I can not blame them because democracy has become a lukewarm concept mingling in the hearts of Nigerians . If the citizens of Nigeria won’t stand for truth  then deception will be a forever assumption . Who will rescue them? Who will carry the cross ? Who wants to sacrifice ? Or is it the case that all leaders are the same ? I weep for the future agendas of this very nation . This  democracy created lot of abnormalities and she’s also a criterion needed for transparency and good governance , if I won’t be condemned I would say or utter this statement ,  “democracy is a liar ” .  

      Indeed,  I have no regret by proclaiming the aforementioned statement because if democracy is not a liar , let her exhibit what she’s known for . She has become a dictator pretending to be free,  whereas she’s not . She has given her pride to the wicked souls through her duties . The function of democracy in Nigeria is like a recycle bin. That is, it is just a repetition of those who  have  retired  from politics or political offices but still waiting with certainty that they will be called  back, if I am not mistaken this should be regarded as true . What theory is next after democracy ? All theories have been postulated for the betterment of Nigeria but all of them departed without success only ‘recession ‘ became a friend to Nigeria yet democracy is busy looking for solutions despite her old age . She should be the one to remind the leaders and citizens to unite in order to combat the challenges . I say again ,  “democracy is a liar ”  

 ” I have expressed little . Remember , I have not generalized democracy but I made it clear at the beginning of this article because if I should generalize,  it might be an intractable expression . As a matter of fact , despite all these challenges I can not deny my country and I am anticipating the day  Nigeria will be number one in the world . If the time is not near,  it will be a difficult thing . “– Akinrulie Opeyemi Joshua . 

“NIGERIA : WHO ARE YOU?”

“NIGERIA : WHO ARE YOU?”

               INTRODUCTION
A nation without reality will crawl without pity, the excellence of a good country will not only depend on leadership but, the people will be needed in this journey”  – – – – Akinrulie Opeyemi Joshua

image

     The main journey started for Nigeria when she gained her independence in 1960,and she became a republican country in 1963. My concern is centered on “Nigeria”, no matter where I go I can not deny my source, and my  source is my existence. If I were born without a country then, my existence will be meaningless, to be meaningless is to be exempted from life, and if no life is given. What will be the focus? I have rested all my missions because of this reality so that a country like Nigeria will be able to activate her hidden potentials, yet, I  ask, who are you, Nigeria? Forget your betrayal and move on to greener pastures, and if the vulgar words  are not forgiven, how would she progress?
       As a matter of fact, it  has been argued that the decadence in Nigeria can be traced to the establishment of those who spearheaded the independence of Nigeria , if that should be the case, Nigeria is still in the quest of establishing her true reality. The people have blamed different sources for the inability of this nation to grow up to the expected realm, but if sacrifices are not made, how will progress occur? The most obvious attack is the issue of leadership which has been a common assertion without amelioration, yet, this people will clamor about leadership with transparency. This same set of people will be bribed thus, transparency would be ashamed to stay because of disloyalty. I will keep exclaiming this mantra “Nigeria : Who are you?”
      

     ” Self belief won’t work unless you actualize it. ‘Thinking’ is good but make sure you invite ‘reasoning’. You are a driver but, do not be reckless because you can mislead some.” – – –  Akinrulie Opeyemi Joshua

        The assumed giant of Africa will soon be defeated, it is a pity that a nation like Nigeria is at sleep while her image is about to be tarnished. If truly there is a future somewhere then, nowhere should be a motivator for the dreams kept. My words may be confusing but, if thinking and reasoning can be merged you will feel the importance of all my expressions. When will greatness be the household for all? There is no doubt that I can not dispute the inequality within human society, If success is hard to attain, why striving to be successful? But, the hardship is that key which will unlock many doors. Nigeria must not be forgotten,if the people can not speak, the shoulders of many will be abased.
         Unseriousness is a disease, belief might not be active if the self is exempted. The primary aim of a good vision is to be diligent with your assumed goals, how far can you go with your potentials? If life is funny there will be need for you to get serious, and if life is serious there will be need for you to get funny. In other words, life comprises both subject matters. Is Nigeria serious or funny? At times, I wish I can deny my origin but, why should I do that? Although, Nigeria is not a place for all but, it is a place for some who believe in a better Nigeria. One day, all these calamities will be detected and quenched but, when will this day come? When would she be known for peace? To give up won’t yield to something good but, a depressive thinking that will lead to suicide.

If Nigeria can not embrace actualization as a criterion in the the quest of development, then, the wrong must be tackled in order to be right. ” – – Akinrulie Opeyemi Joshua

                       CONCLUSION
If a better Nigeria would demand the death of all citizens, who wants to  die? What if it gets better without the death of all? It is very obvious that there is a bifurcation of good and evil battling for stability and instability in Nigeria. Change will not totally terminate corruption but it will  only reduce it. “—– Akinrulie Opeyemi Joshua

  ” I have tried to  embrace honesty but, I need to be factual about this issue because if I do not express with truthfulness I may be arrested my truth. Mere words will not define the authentication of Nigeria. What can be done is to ask  Nigeria herself. Nigeria, what are the solutions to  your problems?. “— Akinrulie Opeyemi Joshua

“A TRUTHFUL LIE”

“A TRUTHFUL LIE”

”  The elders will not give up, they will continue to deceive youths who have been dancing to the melodious tunes of happiness, thinking, they are the leaders of tomorrow. This is a truthful lie.” – – – Akinrulie Opeyemi Joshua

image

I am not launching an attack to anyone but, it is time to stand and express what has been hidden to all. If you can not think, who will think for you?. There are no signs of tomorrow but the present is the tomorrow you have been clamoring for. The youths are still expecting the elders to leave the thrones they have occupied for years, they have promised the youths that loyalty will always be their banner but, there are no chances of giving up, yet, their old children are also on the queue to embrace the quest of power. Who will query them? Who will fight them? Even, loyalty is angry because of this betrayal but, what would loyalty do? Loyalty can not be active because the unseen can not be seen. If the elders are not wise, must the youths follow the same act? It  has become a  vengeance of the youths to dethrone the elders, they will succeed in this quest. Can they rule judiciously? In the case of this contemporary society where youths are often distracted by the worldly expenses, thus, bargaining their sensibility for senselessness. I am not exempted from this situation in as much as  I am living in this world. The mystery will not be shown to all.

image

What life am I living?  Am I living my life? It is better to live one’s life than to live a fake which will yield nothing. Life is not secured, it is for everybody and anybody, if that should be the case, the way we think would be a great influence if life is to be shaped. You have embraced that truthfulness which you have thought of, different times. As time approaches, your discovery alerted your consciousness thus, you became inclined in order to fight for your independence which has been blurred for many years. If the essence of truth is for lie to be demolished or destroyed,then, lie is also truthful. In  other words, the existence of ‘lie’connotes ‘truth’, you can not be truthful all the days of your life but, let religion and others keep their examples as regards this matter. Elders and youths have embraced these two concepts : lie and truth. As a matter of fact, where are we going? We tend to ask this question on several occasions but, what have we done to it?. If I have a plan, then, it must be executed to become a plan, one vital problem we are facing is a notion of realization. Are you real? Am I real?. If I engage myself in a truthful lie, how will I progress?. The future is now, it is not coming. Wiseness will be needed.

image

The journey is not far, you have chosen a criterion that is too long to  comprehend, infact, the problem is yourself, if you can solve it, then, the problems of life will be simple. “—-Akinrulie Opeyemi Joshua

“ON POLITICS : ARISE WOMEN”

“ON POLITICS : ARISE WOMEN”

   “I was perturbed by the huge maltreatment geared towards women who are to participate in politics. If I have my way I would create a world  of women” – – – – Akinrulie Opeyemi Joshua   

  Who says women can’t participate in politics? Who says women are not relevant in the society? Who says they are not brave to face the tasks? There is no doubt women have been ridiculed in our contemporary society. Some have asked about the usefulness of women in politics, and the contributions they will give if called into politics. The time has come to stand and fight for your rights, if it is not now, when will it be? As future will be no more even if, there is a future, it should be now. Are you going to let people subdue you? Will you allow a minor issue to subjugate your decisions?

image

 
  You must not give up, no matter what the maltreaters are planning. Do not bargain your pride for anything even if, it will cost you everything. Who can sacrifice the whole? Who can  raise the banner of women and make it a vestige of agitation?  Where are the true women? Are they still alive? Wake up from your slumber, fight the good fight which will make all generations know you are, who you are. When I see  women being maltreated I always feel disheartened, but, how can a subjective mind move the world, if  not, objectivism? Yet, you are hiding under the umbrella of deceptions. The time is now or never.

image

    
     Why do regard yourself as a weaker vessel? Your mental capacity can activate the true person you are, in as much as you have the concept of thinking as related to human knowledge. For many years, women have been obstructed in some aspects, if not all. But few women rose to fight for the independence of women, however, their lives were truncated. In this modern society, women are too  busy with the worldly attractions, and would rather prefer to be. Where is your passion as a woman? How about the zeal you once had? It is shameful that women have failed to actualize their fundamental rights.

image

Do not see this as  a mere article, I  have imagined a world without women, but, I realized the importance of women within the society. This is a short preface. Women arise. “—–Akinrulie Opeyemi Joshua

“EMANCIPATION FROM SLAVERY TO DESTRUCTION”

“EMANCIPATION FROM SLAVERY TO DESTRUCTION”

  Which way will mankind go? All plans have been used, what plans will be accepted to anathematise the created decadence. Yet, we relax as if it doesn’t concern us. It may not our problem but, if we must find our way out this will surely be in unity. We have ridiculed ‘unity’ with a common eye, in such a way that ‘unity’ doesn’t have value. The vital thing we are yet to assume is the power to accede or agree, everyone wants his or her own subjective way of thinking to supercede in all ramifications but, if everybody were to act subjectively, how will the world progress?
   We have been known for our adamant displays in accordance with several castigation which will yield nothing but a nihilistic agenda. We have been deceived enough, it is  time for us to picture ourselves and revive the dead souls. Ignite the passions wherever that are, call on the past to help us reestablish  our contemporary society. The unforgivable is forgivable but the forgivable is unforgettable, there is nothing like privacy but once it’s extreme, one might be neglected for life. The apex of life is yet to be discovered but, people are still taking life like, life is life, whereas life is death. The question is : what are we seeking for since death is the penalty?
    We must not forget that we moving for from slavery to destruction. Is it not better to die a slave than to be destroyed without hope? We wanted respect, we have gotten it through destruction. How will respect be useful when destruction is happy? For how long are we going to be in the realm of myopic thinking? Our cases will be revealed, let our televisions be awake.

  “Our simple guessing will result to nothing, it will revert our consciousness to be unconsciousness”
