|The Hypocrisy Of Nigerians Towards Sympathizers And The Paris Massacre by Panelbeater(m): 4:45am On Nov 15, 2015|
THE HYPOCRISY OF NIGERIANS TOWARDS SYMPATHIZERS AND THE REALISM OF THE PARIS MASSACRE..
Ekiti people would say "Bu wo ba se gbe ugba re, li oma araye a ba o gbe"
"The mode and manner which you carry your calabash is directly proportional to how the community would handle it either with care or carelessness for you"
Likewise in reality, the manner through which You handle your life, property, esthablishment and country is tantamount to how the world would handle it for you either with care or carelessness as the case might be.
Let's be truthful with ourselves for once, has successive Arab, African and Nigeria governments done enough for it's citizens to warrant such a grade 'A' barge of sympathy from the world??. My good friend Steve Harris would say "Great packaging enhances value", has the Nigerian government packaged it's citizens enough thereby increasing their value in the comity of nations??
Yes I quite agree that the same blood flows in veins of Boko haram victims and that of the Paris massacre victims but just like a vibrant economy determines the strenght of a country's currency, likewise the disposition of a government towards it's citizens determines the value placed on them by the world. Has successive Nigerian government valued us enough as citizens of this country to warrant such gravity of sympathy from the world??.
Where do I even start from, is it the the zaki biam massacre, the odi genocide, the mereciless killing Igbo traders in Kano, the maistine riot, the deaths from fulani herdsmen, the ethnic cleansing at Jos and Benue states, the religious killings at kaduna, the chibok girls, political assasinations, extra-judicial killings by the police and the insensitivity of the our government towards it's citizens. Even if the whole world were to sympathize with us on each occassion, I think we would have a world of grief..
Imagine some unruly youths in your community holding some American, Russian, Isreali, British citizens hostage, I am sure yours sincerely would abscond from the town because of the fear of what the US marine, KGB, Navy Seal and the Mossad commandoes would do to your community even after rescuing the hostages.
On the other hand kidnapp some citizens of Nigeria and slaughter them on a live television program at a known location, the best they could get is a presidential condolence message dazzol..
In the philosophy of the light and sound society, zeal, passion and drive for success is said to have an attractive positive energy that naturally attracts the right set of people towards a proposed goal likewise the world intuitically values what people generally places value on..
Fellow wailers, please let's pray and mourn for Paris as people who appreciate value.
I love Nigeria and this article is a timely reminder to our government on placing more value on us..

I'm so perplexed and in a state of imbroglio as well, the world never stood up for Nigeria when about 600 Nigerian citizens were unjustly murdered by boko haram in Nyanya, talkless of the daily destructions of lives & properties in the North East, let them continue oh, there is God.
