The price we are struggling to pay for unity is causing us much more than we believe we could because leaders after rulers have not been able the least to quench our long denied thirst of unity that without hesitation could put to bed the crusading mistrust of openness and the high-flying credo of I, ME and MYSELF mentality.
Despite the wasted echo that out strength lies in our unity, we have found great pleasure in division which can bring for us any tangible fruit accumulated from the spirit of unity and the foundation of collectivism; yet we profess and proclaim to love each other and have the country at heart, how possible can that be?
What we continue to display through deceit in our lives is all about the crab concept always hustling, scheming and struggling to get others down and mostly bitter to not see them excel, indeed this hurts us more than drinking a cup of pure poison.
This cruel way of life style has rendered us to deeply love aliens to an extent of empowering them to preside even over our heritage while ensuring that our own people are kept far away from the scene for fear that they will wish us ill-fate or rain terror, horror and havoc on our achievements and livelihood.
With this existing mentality eclipsing our sense of oneness of purpose and belonging with no expectationof making the greatest sacrifice to accommodate shared unity, both from top to bottom we will continue to find ourselves in an uphill tussle in laying our hands on unity which is the master key that enables us to openly, lovingly, willingly and respectfully accept others with total receptiveness, thereby working towards sustained growth and development for the state and its people with no class or sub-treatments for others.
Based on this, we are always pleased and very happy when aliens yoked us and controlled our way of life leaving us thin as pale lizards in search of a hideout for fear that truism will surely expose the hatred and weaknesses found in our quizzical characters devoured of the precious DNA of welcoming, acceptability and accommodation.
Today, we are once again confronted with a major pandemic that is very global in nature and scope, and with such a high rate of detestation being demonstrated in almost wherever we find ourselves, it is unity that could seal us together to forcefully brace the global pandemic known as Coronavirus, but unfortunately, unity has been traded for I, ME and MYSELF using the crab’s platform.
The previous leader conceded that her administration failed to reconcile the people and nation, this regime, born out of grassroots support is heavily focused on the rock from whence it was hewed and with the story of COVID-19 in town, and all efforts applied to maintain the crab mentality-that says, if it is not me, then it should be no one else; we have found ourselves between the rock and the hard place, meaning between COVID-19 and the struggles for unity.
