We as the bystanders welcome the newly appointed ministers. We
say publicly that we would not let your offices rest, because if there be any
misgivings we are actually the ones to be first affected. The build up to each
ones appointment was huge. While it did not still surpass that of the INEC results coalition (that coalition was simply epic, if you missed it; You missed), it did come close. But you are here
finally. Here your past glory no longer matters, your past success is irrelevant.
It’s time to go by the beautiful and organised thinking that helped you go
through the upper chamber. This is not business as usual. Everyday matters,
every second counts.
|New Ministers being Inaugurated|
Welcome to the bystander. Where perfection is the goal but excellence
is also accepted. A place unusual minds meet. A hub of ideas. Ordinary doesn’t survive
here. Here we know, corruption is Nigeria’s biggest problem, but we believe
next to it is lack of Ideas, and next to that is Incompetence. That’s why since the
inception of civil service, no civil servants has gone on strike on the basis
that funds were not realised to do their work well or to meet a set goal, but
they have gone on strike because funds were not released to eat and drive the
latest of cars countless times, we say this is not normal. The road safety
begins work at 6am and closes work around 4pm when the road fury is
about to begin; we say this is not accepted.
So to the new ministers, watch out for the bystanders, we
are everywhere, and we mean business.
By the way, am just a Bystander
