A little over two years ago, Nigerians went to the polls…it was a tension filled and anxiety soaked moment for the nation. A year in which the “seers” had even seen the foreclosure of the state.
Olufela Olusegun Oludotun Ransome-Kuti, popularly known as Fela Kuti, in his lifetime poked his fingers into the eyes of military personnel and politicians decrying the exploits and carnage orchestrated within the walls of our territory.
He was awoken by a strange phone call from his colleague over the assassination of Chief Owoseni Adigun in the odd hours of night at his residence in Lagos, a metropolitan state across the Western Region of Nigeria. Unstable and distorted were the reactions that emerged after receiving the information that prompted him to leave his house to the scene of murder.
Do you remember that gist on the bush meat and the hunter? It was Frank Zappa that said there is more stupidity than hydrogen in the universe, and it has a longer shelf life. This cannot be more true than in Nigeria where there are far more stupid persons than the entire population of some African nations. With profound apologies we continually demonstrate our stupidity in large doses.
