TOLU'S DIARY

TUESDAYS 10 AM


Hi diary,

My hands tremble as I purge myself of these feelings emanating from the killings in our dear country.
Nigeria, once a land flowing with milk and honey seems to be a country flowing with murder and bloodshed. I ask myself,
"Why will a cow that produces her milk  be replaced by the inhabitants that consumes that milk? The bee stings instead of producing her honey and the liquids refuse to flow and are stagnant".
Killings everywhere on a daily basis, all the those who swore to protect the people do  is to jam-pack meetings with legions. Hundreds of people massacred by so called herdsmen without actions being taken.
Why do we have to vote people into power with our PVCs and all they do is to try and reduce the population till they vote themselves in as the last man standing? We all sing,  ‘...To build a nation where peace and justice shall reign...’ but it is the other way round.
Thousands of people rendered homeless, yet we dance to the tunes of politicians embarking on another journey of dashed hope.
 
Arise O’ compatriots, it is time to save our fathers’ land. We can’t continue to stay indoors and pray alone. We have been silent enough. We have to show the unity we proclaim by standing for our dear nation. As we have pledged ‘...to defend her unity, and uphold her honour and glory...’,  let us take action NOW.
Let's say NO TO BLOODSHED!
Let's say NO TO KILLINGS!
Let's say NO TO RELIGIOUS BIGOTS! Those threatening the peace and stability of Nigeria must go for it.
It is time to rise for our dear nation. The labor of our heroes past must not be in vain.
Diary, Nigeria is our home and we must enjoy the goods of the land.
Till next week.

  1. It seems very impossible for those in the presidency to see what is going on in this country. How can a leadership that cannot respond swiftly to the killings of her citizens by another group of citizens allegedly deploy 30,000 police officers for an election at the same period. It goes to show where their loyalties lie 'power at any cosy'is all they care about at the expense of the security of citizens
