The Ring Of Power: Story Of Our Nation. by kenny714433(m): 3:41pm On Feb 02
Backstory

In the once-peaceful realm of Middle-earth, a powerful artifact known as the One Ring was forged with the noble intent to unite and bring order to the free peoples. Its creator, Sauron, envisioned a world free from discord and chaos. However, the inherent power within the Ring had a corrupting influence, twisting even the most honorable intentions.

As Sauron's influence spread, individuals with initially noble purposes were drawn to the allure of the One Ring. Prominent figures like Boromir, a valiant warrior from Gondor, were seduced by the promise of using the Ring's power to defend their lands. Despite his genuine desire to protect his people, the Ring's corrupting force began to taint Boromir's motivations.

Similarly, Saruman the White, a wise and respected wizard, initially sought to use the Ring to confront Sauron and establish his own vision of order. However, as Saruman delved deeper into the Ring's power, his original intentions of defeating the dark forces became entangled with desires for supremacy and control.

Even Frodo Baggins, the Ring-bearer chosen for his innocence and purity of heart, struggled against the corrupting influence of the One Ring. The burden of carrying such immense power gradually weighed on him, testing his resolve and challenging his commitment to the original quest.

Our Reality
Our story is akin to John Ronald's Lord of the Rings. It tells of how power can corrupt even the innocent. Ours was better, after forging all regions to create a very powerful centre, we identified the problem long ago. Like people of middle earth, we came together to forge a solution which all pointed to dissolution of power, what the common man will term restructuring.
It's inherent benefit was visible to even the blind. "This would encourage healthy competition, strip off laziness from governors who just sit idle waiting for monthly allocation, encourage states to develop in their areas of strength amongst others" but the story has remained same from ages past.

Like Frodo Baggins, the power now rest on Tinubu as the Ring bearer. One would expect that Tinubu who was such a vocal advocate for this course would head straight to Middle-earth to undo the mistake. Every passing day, the burden of carrying such immense power gradually weigh on him, testing his resolve and challenging his commitment to the original quest. Now, he looks at the Ring of power and mutters.... "MY PRECIOUS"

Stop watching too much movies. Reality is much different from screenplays.
