Dear Poverty United,

I have been bothered lately about the dangerous theory that rich people are bad and that they hate Buhari because they are beneficiaries of corruption.

The people in VGC, Ikoyi, or Lekki don't hate Buhari. They are primed for prosperity, and thus will resist any attempt to plunge them into poverty.

It is not a question of force to love Buhari, it is a question of choice and most importantly, a question of values.

If your values are closely aligned to poverty, so be it. Not everyone can tolerate poverty.

This idea that some rich people are rich because they stole, or are corrupt is a very corrupt idea in itself. It is the mother of all corruption.

To award human beings like yourself the badge of corruption when they are hardworking is a form of hate speech.

Be poor if you must be, but spare others who have chosen to resist poverty.

Buhari "may have" won this election, but you must know that does not validate your poverty promotion campaigns. Common economic sense will prevail and we will be on the path to economic prosperity again.

The surest way for the prosperity of the average Nigerian is when the rich can create jobs, and when they can gather capital for institutional investment.

So please, quit this your dangerous theory and get to work.

Let me leave you with a quote by Abraham Lincoln:

“You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich. You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong. You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift. You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down. You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred. You cannot build character and courage by taking away people's initiative and independence. You cannot help people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves.”

Thank you.
