Obviously something is either terrestrially or spiritually wrong with us in Okun Nation. Despite all the numerous Professors, Doctors, intelligentsia, and above all the Politicians we have in Okun Nation we remain so backward and grossly underdeveloped.
The unfortunate Isanlu killings and robbery today should be a catalyst of critical thinking and evaluation of the state of Okun Nation. The enormous human resources we have is not reflecting in the socioeconomic status of Okun Nation.
It is sad that despite the production of several political gladiators from our nation vis-à-vis members of house of Rep, senators, commissioners, ministers e.t.c. we cannot point to tangible things that are capable of improving our standard of living. We have paraded so many big guys in the arena of politics but it does appear the more we have people up there the more people suffer back home. What a story! Starvation in the midst of plenty.
Our roads are in a state of anomie. Driving on Kabba – Egbe road is like engaging in macaba dance.
What is more that can provoke a generational agony than to imagine having 6 tertiary institutions in the state without a single one in okun nation. ( pls dont tell me abt CoE technical Kabba).
What about having 3 Tertiary health institutions without a single one in the entire Okun Nation?
What about having just only one general hospital in Kabba where you have many Zonal Hospitals elsewhere in the state?
In okun nation, during night hours the activities of witches and wizard are naturally enhanced because there is darkness all over the land.
What exactly is the impact of our politicians to the Okun Nation? If it is not noise making it is unprecedented sycophancy. If it is not thuggery it is bootlicking free of charge. If it is not big stouting it is drunkenness. And an entire generation to come awaits a legacy to be passed? I wonder what we are building for generation to come. Irrespective of your political party, be it APC, PDP, AP, APGA, and the rest of them the golden truth is everybody has failed.
The worst of it is that in the midst of failures some of us still have the effrontery to dare to praise a particular group for a ” progress” made ? Where is it ? Is it imaginary, latent, or occult?
It is high time we rose to the challenge of building a true nation for ourselves and our children.
It is high time we mobilise strength and with deliberate effort concentrate energies to reposition our nation for good
In this 21st century our nation still battle to have the presence of banking institutions on our land? The ones we have witness incessant attacks from robbers without a way out and the robbers still ply the same bad roads without being nabbed ?
I weep for my nation
The Okun Nation
May God raise a moses for us in no more distant time.
God bless Okun Land.
