I am not happy with some people. I just don’t know what motivates them, what is their life ambition or goal. Do they derive joy from seeing others suffer.
I was accosted by a barrow pusher yesterday. He was hungry and needed to eat. He pleaded that I atleast give him 50 Naira so that he can buy Okpa and eat. This man is old enough to be my dad, but he was begging me for food. I Nduaguba Marcellus Chukwujekwu, who am I to be the hope of a Barrow pusher. He explained that life has been hard for him, that he still has his wife and children to feed.
Meanwhile my leaders, the ones we elected or were selected for us are busy commissioning their stature (a multi-million project) while the poor man dies of hunger.
Am angry at my leaders, for they have made themselves gods and lords over us.
I cannot keep quite while people are begging me for their daily bread. A blessed nation with wicked leaders.
Poverty in Africa is a product of bad leadership!
