There lived a Young man in his late 30s, he is an ardent and unrepentant critic of policies and programs of his state Governor. This Young man uses every means ranging from electronic to print media to rubbish and castigate the state HOS members and commissioners,he soiled the good name and publicly ruined the reputations and image of his governor. He serially accuses them of embezzlement of public funds, mismanagement and maladministration. He is generally regarded as a freedom fighter and he garner hundreds of followers on twitter, Facebook and other social media platforms. The Youths ranked him high esteem, regarded him as role model and tipped him as a future leader.ADVERTISEMENT
One day he received a surprise call from the Governor. He was invited to come to the Government house to strike a deal so as to end the impasses of media hostilities. The Governor assured him of his security and safety and also his desire to change some of his policies if he can convince him otherwise with better inputs and suggestions.ADVERTISEMENT
This Young man could not hide his joy and gladly accepts the noble invitation. He was so happy and he puts on his best ‘baban riga’ (Agbada) and secretly hired a tricycle( keke-napep) and headed straight to the Government house.
The security men at the second gate asked him to move straight to the reception and told the cyclist( Keke driver) to wait 4 him outside. As he enters the reception, the governor sent his aid with #150,000 in a brown envelop and ask the young man to give it to the cyclist as his transport fare.
This young man stepped out and curiously opened the envelop and saw 3 bundles of #500 bills and he said to himself all this for transport fare, this is too much. He decides to remove 2 bundles(#100,000) and hide in his agbada and gave the okada 1 bundle (#50,000).
He quickly joined the Governor at the inner chamber while smiling and thanking him 4 the kind gesture. He was then offered a sit, the Governor now took his phone and called the security men at the first gate and demanded to speak with the okada man, he put the phone on loudspeaker and ask him how much was given to him and he confirmed #50,000.ADVERTISEMENT
He now turns the Young freedom fighter and says, can you see it. The Governor reminded him that in just less than10 minutes he shortchanged one citizen 100k, then how much would he embezzle if he is given the opportunity to Govern up to 5million people in four Years?
The young man starts crying and begging for mercy. The Governor ask him not to cry as he will keep to his word for securing him. He now told him his original intention of giving him a brand new Peugeot 307 car and gift of 500k. But since he prefer 100k, then he can go with it.
So please, my young comrades , if you live in a glass house do not throw stones, lets remove the logs in our eyes first. Some of us can do worse if given the opportunity!
