In times like this, I appreciate God for saving the life of Nigeria’s Vice President, Prof Yemi Osinbajo in a helicopter crash for the second. I mean the second time!
Needless trading barbs and allegation of any fetish enchantment or plot to eliminate Mr VP for this mishap. Honestly speaking, many love Mr VP including yours truly

Looking at past antecedents, one could genuinely conclude that an old, unserviced flying jet was used to fly the number 2 man in the country. We cannot continue to blame an illusory spirit for our failures, dooms and man-made disasters. Perhaps, we do so because of our mental poverty and delusional belief in magic wand by our handicapped leaders to transform our woes to Eldorado.

The rot in the system is unmitigated and remains unchallenged. We are seeing a country where lip-service is deployed to fighting corruption. It is corruption that would have eliminated Professor Osinbajo and not any spiritual power or a group of power-seeking individuals. The lack of maintenance culture and diversion of maintenance funds are just part of the indices that would continue to bring about such heart-wrenching scenarios.

This country enjoys the rot it is suffering from; glorifies and eulogizes the elitist thieves that handed down it worsening maladies but rush to hang flaming tires around the neck of the little thief who pilfers a thin of sardine or an old woman whose child is dying of HIV/AIDS after being accused of practising sorcery.

Former Governor Rotimi Amaechi now a serving minister had told us for the umpteenth time that we are the reason our leaders are stealing our money and hoist poverty on us. And because we are not taking action, the stealing, the mismanagement and our woes will continue. I strongly believe him.

Mr VP should wake up and see the need to correct the anomaly and save millions from dying, including himself.
Wishing you a quick recovery, Mr Vice President!
