Sir: My dear friend, Omoyele Sowore, you’re a genuine and good person. I love and appreciate your fearlessness and audacity to the emancipation of the hapless Nigerians. But what you need to do ahead of 2023 is to re-strategize by being politically mature, pragmatic, and lead a refined campaign and mobilisation of like minds to wake up the naughty and slumbering youths to wake up from their nauseating slumber. Some of the awakened youths are social media ants festering the psyches of the reasonable ones amongst them on social media. Nigerian youths have misplaced priority and misappropriation of opportunity to “take back” their future from the political vultures mortgaging their future. Anything short of this onerous admonition is like running a marathon to an unending destination.
Nigeria is endemic with chronic corruption. Nigerian youths are the enemies of themselves. They need to reorder their mangled identity. These unserious youths are not worth dying for. Ask Gani Fawehinmi and other demise patriots! Let the situation self-implode to get it right! This recalcitrant attitude is not worth it in a society that contradicts itself.
My friend, Sowore, 2023 is not too far but every minute from your beautiful family is too far away! It is smart to lose a fight and run to fight another day. Nigeria is a society of anomie. I am completely upset for you to be far away from your beautiful family, and get incommunicado in a contradictory environment. If you want to catch a monkey, you have to be smart and act like a monkey to tame the monkey. Be mindful that the enablers and cyborgs on social media will detach from you if the chips are down. You need your beautiful family more than anyone.
