Life on social media nowadays is mostly hateful, treacherous and irresponsible; a frightening reality when we consider that it is home to the better part of our elite, our intellectuals. They in the main, now share the characteristic of the local politician who would conflagrate the nation with glib falsity, for the small comfort of lighting his cigarette!
The skewed information of lop-sidedness in appointments to public office amongst many wild ethnic claims, majorly without even the slightest interrogation, let alone wholesome analysis, is one more example of the tragedy of our elite.
I need to recover my sanity and for a while venture into the real world peopled by the majority of Nigerians, who without the sensibilities of wizards, simply desire with silent prayers, responsive governance and the warmth of innocent brotherliness irrespective of ethnic sourcing. I want to go back to sitting outside with dear friends every evening under the vigilance of the skies, to friendly banter and the excitement of uncorked beverages!
