Of Respect Is Dead
August 1, 2004
We have reached value
bankruptcy. Chieftaincy is for sale to the highest bidder, tradition for
auction, thieving children are no longer outcasts of the family, and corruption
has become our national pastime. Our traditional moral values are totally
destroyed. We have become nihilist
If anyone is responsible for
our nihilistification, it is the Nigerian Elder! The so called eminent Nigerian.
Once the epitome of decency,
the Nigerian Elder has become the notable champion of our moral decay. Our Elder
is the looting Politician, the crooked Statesman, the incompetent Technocrat,
the rogue Traditional Ruler, and the false miracle peddling Religious Leader.
All our institution's have become violated by corrupt Men, and the Elder is the
towering symbol of all our depravity. He is a thieving Person. Robbing tradition
by demanding respect, and stealing the Country blind.
The Elder is the reason we have
become almost a failed state. He ruined most of our traditional institution,
damaged modern authority and order. A Nigerian Elder is a totally lawless
character. Bribery is the tool he uses to defeat our values. Our elders brought
the culture of “Chop I. Chop” upon us, colluding with the Nigerian Military to
blunder our progress. In civilian rule, the Elder was even worse. He created
political thuggery, and electoral process theft. The Elder does not value
Democracy. He is a chauvinist of power. Elder by any means necessary!
Our Elders are also prodigal.
The Elders does not create industry, he ruins it. Once ruined, he carts his
spoils to foreign lands. Our Elders are spoilers. They have rubbished us as a
Nation, and damaged our National pride. The Elders have no interest in National
development. They loathe a prosperous
Our Elders are also debtors.
Huge debt was never a way of life for us. They owe the International community
billions of Dollars, most of the money borrowed at a period of economic
prosperity. These shameless men are now asking for debt forgiveness. Our
Forefather never asked for debt forgiveness. Our Elders now live in fear. They
forgot that they will suffer from the blights of moral decadence they brought
upon us. Now the roads are bad, the Elders must drive through pot holes like
everybody else. Now the hospitals are gone, the Elders must seek treatment
overseas, This year alone, several Elders died in foreign hospitals. Hahaha!
Loot the Hospitals, get Cardiac Arrest in
, rushed for medical treatment is a foreign Country. What do
you have? A dead Elder! Dead and flown back for burial in
. Son of the Soil came back home in a casket.
Our Elders are also threatened.
Most of them keep Robbery tithe at home, should in case Armed Robbers descend on
their homes. Yes, They pay Armed Robbery taxes like everybody else. Our thieving
Elders, living in fear of burglars. We have become shameless.
