“Iwe Eko o se tu wo”. So said one brother to me a while ago. Meaning: The account books of Lagos cannot be examined. The atrocities that have been committed over the past 24 years of unbroken one-party rule in Lagos beggar belief, he said. He added that the jails will be full if any other party were to win Saturday’s election, seize control of the Lagos State Government and launch a probe of the state’s finances. That, really, is the long and short of all the current panic and helter-skelter over the forthcoming gubernatorial elections. This has nothing to do with Chinedu or Jenifa; Igbo or Yoruba. It is just about the mortal fear of the incumbent ruling gang of the consequences of losing power. And if it takes starting an ethnic war to prevent such a dire possibility, the present owners of Lagos won’t think twice about that at all!”
That’s it! You heard it. That is the reason behind all the ethnic mumbo-jumbo and balablu of ‘Oni la bi Taiye, ana la bi Kehinde’.
Some of us are not deceived. ‘A mò bo se nlò !!!!
