You Know I'm Just Joking by Ayomide Tayo Nigeria, Quo Vadis?

With all that is going on right now, Nigeria is heading towards a point of no return.

Another Monday has come and I really don't want to write on politics and the state of the nation but the way things are right now I must or feel I should.

With all that has happened since last Monday when I wrote the infamous 2face Idibia article, I can't help but wonder where we have gotten it wrong.

Presently, a convicted thief is planning his re-entry to Nigerian politics after he was welcomed with so much pomp and pageantry. If James Ibori had ridden on a donkey I would have mistaken him for Jesus Christ when he entered Jerusalem. The brazen celebration over a thief is shocking and disheartening.

Our President has extended his vacation in the United Kingdom and the rumours concerning his health have gone from curiosity and speculation to almost apprehension. There is a strong possibility that Nigeria is about to witness a déjà vu- the replaying of events that occurred before, and after the death of President Yaradua.

 

After many conversations online and offline, 2face Idibia pulled out of his protest which itself has given birth to another controversy. Nigeria seems to be on the brink.

 

This political system has been threatening to collapse for decades but now it is glaring that this ramshackle house we have called our nation can no longer withstand the years of corruption and mismanagement. Things have fallen apart and the centre can no longer hold.

Rome burns, Nero is sick in the hospital and the citizens last night watched Big Brother Naija to ease the pain. When all the housemates have left the house and the reality show is over we must face the recession, high cost of living, and poor power supply.

When we get to this point where we are tired and take it anymore, we shall ask ourselves only one question. Nigeria quo Vadis which means Nigeria where are you going?
