Goodbye Coach, Farewell Akpabio

  • Published in News

When a footballer scores a goal, he introduces electricity into the air. He jumps up and punches the air.  He greets the spectators and sometimes, according to his faith, makes a sign of the holy cross. His colleagues will hug him and slap his back. They will pull his hair in celebration of the goal. It's a goal, it's a goal!!

Cross River 2019: Usani's Confusion Ends, Owan Enoh Laughs Last

Is the build up to the 2019 governorship election in Cross River State really splendid or absurd? If the game of politics is generally splendid, the motive is absurd, at least in Nigeria. Two basic ingredients lacking in the Nigerian political climate are the magnanimity on the part of winners to share their victory and the equanimity on the part of losers to accept defeat. The driving force in all this is free oil money and its concomitant corruption which has eaten deep into the fabric of the Nigerian society. Official corruption in Nigeria has made politics so attractive to evil men and women that they can easily bet their mother's head to run for any elective office. It is the only reason why politicians want to win at all cost and by all means. Aside from the morbid drive to carry profane party flags, most politicians in Nigeria now hug different contours of unbridled ambition; and so they go into politics as a "do-or-die affair." True, the political business corners a huge chunk of the ego market due largely to the enormous return on investment as the one most profitable business venture in the country. Indeed, politics is tougher than most professions to actually sort through the excess refuge since all manner of characters go into it with reckless abandon, hence no decorum in their approach to the game.
