Nigeria amongst nations is plagued with the unfortunate curse of evil, myopic, glutinous and unproductive leaders, who steal public funds for stealing sake not because they have any plan in the grand scheme of things but simply to exist in luxury for the rest of their lives while the rest of us sigh and drink our tears.
We have great and mighty politicians and their wives, governors and legislators patronising hospitals all over the world while we are stuck in clinics that smell worse than morgues, people are executed daily in our courts for engaging in robbery and kidnapping when they are forced to survive on less than a dollar a day.
People cannot demand service from Government because local government funds are trapped in the capitals while Governors appoint their cronies to run things because they seek to hold unto power at all cost and are afraid of conducting elections due to the fact that they know people would not support their hand picked aspirants; so the dividends of democracy are hijacked and squandered by them alone.
Up north politicians pay lip service to the boko haram menace, they clamour for amnesty because new offices would be created. They are most unwilling to condemn their activities instead they draw parallels with the Niger Delta insurgents, one of them went as far as the BBC to say the terrorists need to be compensated. Its no news that financial aid comes from some political office holders to fuel the mass murder of Nigerians.
There others who play politics with our collective security and point accusing fingers at the president as if in his 2 years in power he really has successfully impoverished the whole north. They blame the activities of a band of disgruntled virgin seeking jihadists on others instead of them to preach peace and change the mindset of these people with their influential positions.
Well since I cannot fight, I’ve decided to pray by this scripture; Job 20:4»29–
Knowest thou not this of old, since man was placed upon earth, that the triumphing of the wicked is short, and the joy of the hypocrite but for a moment?
Though his excellency mount up to the heavens, and his head reach unto the clouds; yet he shall perish for ever like his own dung: they which have seen him shall say, where is he?
He shall fly away as a dream and shall not be found: yea, he shall be chased away as a vision of the night. The eye also which saw him shall see him no more; neither shall his place any more behold him.
His children shall seek to pleas the poor, and his hands shall restore their goods. His bones are full of the sin of his youth, which shall lie down with him in the dust. Though wickedness be sweet in his mouth, though he hide it under his tongue; though he spare it and forsake it not; but keep it still within his mouth:
Yet his meat in his bowels is turned, it is the gall of asps within him. He hath swallowed down riches and he shall vomit them up again: God shall cast them out of his belly.
He shall suck the poison of asps: the vipers tongue shall slay him. He shall not see the rivers, the floods, the brooks of honey and butter. That which he laboured for shall he restore, and shall not swallow it down: according to his substance shall the restitution be, and he shall not rejoice therein.
Because he hath oppressed and hath forsaken the poor; because he hath violently taken away a house which he builded not; surely he shall not feel quietness in his belly, he shall not save of that which he desired.
There shall none of his meat be left; therefore shall no man look for his goods. In the fulness of his sufficiency he shall be in straits: every hand of the wicked shall come upon him. When he is about to fill his belly, God shall cast the fury of his wrath upon him, and shall rain it upon him while he is eating.
He shall flee from the iron weapon, and the bow of steel shall strike him though. It is drawn, and cometh out of the body; yea, the glittering sword cometh out of his gall: terrors are upon him.
All darkness shall be hid in his secret places: a fire not blown shall consume him; it shall go ill with him that is left in his tabernacle. The heaven shall reveal his iniquity; and the earth shall rise up against him.
The increase of his house shall depart, and his goods shall flow away in the day of his wrath. This is the portion of a wicked man from God, and the heritage appointed unto him by God.
