Will Africans be ever free?
Sir: I wonder if Africans and especially Nigerians can ever free themselves from their colonial master’s apron strings. Why do we still run to these former masters asking them to intervene in our local or national affairs? Are we still so immature that we cannot settle our own misunderstanding ourselves?
Recently the Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu wrote a petition to the United Nations, European Union, United States and other foreign missions over an alleged witch-hunt of opposition leaders by the Federal Government.
Sometime ago some Ekiti State legislators did something similar. What type of “people” are these, representing us? What type of “leaders” do we have? Are there no courts in Nigeria?
Why can’t Ekweremadu go ahead and prove his innocence, instead of resorting to shenanigan?
I hope all those petitioned threw the petitions into the dustbin which is where they deserve to be. All these petitioners, our so called “leaders” owe all Nigerians an apology for ridiculing the country.
Pretty soon we shall be petitioning these foreign missions to settle our family and domestic disputes. Giant of Africa indeed.
