THE students of Obafemi Awolowo University, OAU demonstrated at the weekend that there is a reason to hope for a better Nigeria. They demonstrated in certain terms that the sweeping and repressing dictator is gradually loosing his popularity by the day.

“NOTHING is new under the sun.” An old man had been frustrated, which led him out of office. He wanted to be a President for life. A youth had felt that he or she had been pushed out in the “political industry,” and some youths still keep referring to the times some Heads of States and Presidents were between the ages of 28 and 38. They are sad that these people, who had their chances as youths are still fighting to rule in their seventies after retirement. A woman had hoped that tomorrow may be better if given a space to make input in governance. Akin to the Blessed Mother Mary, she had kept in her heart the hardship that spreads tentacles all over the world. She kept wondering how comfortable some leaders are, watching poverty walking naked on every street in the towns and villages.
Policemen allegedly acting on the instruction of the secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Ayim Pius Ayim and the National Security Adviser (NSA) Col. Sambo Dasuki locked the gates to the National Assembly (NASS) preventing the speaker and other honourable members from gaining access to the Assembly Complex thereby preventing the house from carrying out its assigned duties.

MR. Seyi Thomas, a 43-year-old man from Kogi, has never voted in any election in the past as a result of what he described as the cumbersome electoral processes during elections.
Thomas also says that he would prefer to sleep in his house or go to farm on election days, rather than participating in any election that “would benefit only a few citizens.
In today’s multifarious world in which abnormality has become normality in every facet of life that people have become so busy (doing nothing) living a lifestyle of excuses has become a tradition for many mouth claimed Christians. Despite the teachings of men of God. Many people who claimed to be Christians still wallow in the devilish act of excuses and they see it as a normal thing. It’s very appealing that the heart of so many people have become so much devoid of the fear of God, that they’re no longer afraid of sin. Little did they know that unnecessary excuses is a sin. Remember “he who knows what is right and fails to do it has already committed a sin”.
