Another Lamentation from AIDN Scammed Victim ~ Patriotism turns to Regret.

“If you think that Akwa Ibom people should just forget about seeking justice the respectful way and continue to be ignored by their rulers (because someone has built highway overpasses), then get ready for even greater shocking behavior. “………

Clement Ikpatt

 

There is a famous story. The crab was telling its kids to walk straight . Then the child replied ,” Mommy could you walk for us to see ?” Then the Mommy crab said, ” Alright and please take a lesson from my example! ” then she began to walk sideways and exclaimed , ” I cannot believe what is happening!” Then walked sideways straight into her hole .

 

Respect is a two way street and being an elder is not a license for wayward behavior. Now that corruption and criminal behavior has become a way of life ,the abuse of power and the institutionalization of sycophancy. Some of us will push the system to equilibrium by refusing  to think like goats.

 

A bird said to the fellow bird ,” As hunters have learnt to shoot without missing ,so have I learnt to fly without perching”  . As elders have decided to sell their souls and abuse their power without conscience ,so have we learnt to call them out without blinking.

 

In Diaspora here there are two schools of thought. Elders are to be respected no matter the despicable behavior they exhibit and there is another in which if elders cannot respect themselves then we shall call them out.

However for the uneducated moron ,historically is the crown or position of power a right or privilege? What exactly constitutes the mechanics of power ? Is there a dynamic in which the ruler agrees to rule and the people accept to be ruled ?  Is it a modified form of slavery in which you have no say in the extent of the power being wielded on your behalf ?  The mechanics of power is simple, the people’s acceptance of the ruler is the substrate in which they operate on. Minus that the ruler ceases to be legitimate. Ghaddafi , Mubarak,Nixon and countless rulers thru the ages have realized sadly and too late that their  power is based on the acceptance of the people.

Failure even in ancient times to realize this principle led to the fall of kings and emperors.  Kings like Charles the First were hanged a mile high as an example to the realm on what the abuse of power brings .

 

 

The pre-colonial blueprint for the West African sub-region by our colonial masters was a system that demanded for absolute subservient behavior . This was to ensure a smooth “slavery” of the people for their ruling pleasure. It was passed on to subsequent generations while the  country of origins of the colonial masters were going thru revolutions and upheavals that led to drastic reformation of their societies and their civilizations at large.

Now fast forward to this day and age , the uneducated moron still abides by the mentality passed onto us by our colonial masters which has led to the retrogression of our society based on one rule ” Oga can do no wrong”. Meanwhile in the land of our Colonial Masters the abusive ruler is quickly removed from office.

 

So let the Bat, not question the Hawk on the merits of his flight techniques because afterall the Bat only flies in the night ! Let nobody question a person on what has he done lately for Akwa Ibom State when he/she has done nothing lately for the state also. Thereby creating an atmosphere in which wrong doing cannot be scrutinized and questioned. Thereby creating a pseudo class of “untouchables” . Thereby creating the breakdown of law and order as we see in Nigeria because the whole land is infested with “untouchables” !

 

This principle was understood by the women involved in the 1929 Ikot Abasi riots. The system was betrayed by the Colonial Masters and consort of native chiefs working in tandem to produce an unnecessary burden on the people. The women reacted quickly even if their chiefs thought that the action of the Colonial Masters was ok.

Nowadays based on the utterances of certain individuals on the Internet we have men who are far weaker than these heroic women but they call themselves men. She-men who are swayed by every demonstration of power and administration no matter how negative and damning it is to the social fabric of the society. She-men whose greed is so intense that they do not have the bravery like true moral leaders and true rulers would, to question abnormalities like murder,kidnapping,looting,embezzlement and the defrauding of innocent members of Diaspora by organizations they belonged to (AIDN).

 

Let Bats not question Hawks anymore
