FEATURED: The Gods On African Thrones...



The Powerless-powerful

The world is wearing out everyday
with make-believe inclinations.

One aspect of these tendencies that is fast affected

is character.

Many people have bought for themselves
weakness of personality.

They forgot that without character
the world is useless.

In Niger-area, for example,
we have majority of the people
with character of religion,
and not character of God.

You don't blame them,
because the country motivates
the sentiment of religion
and Niger-aeries are seeing it.

We judge each other
by the glamour of their religion and wealth,
and not by the glowing attributes
of their character.

Education or school
which was supposed to shape
people's character
takes the centre stage
leaving the people
not to think critically.

Many people don't think extensively.

There are many men and women
of distinguished status without character;
bunches of them are in the House of Assemble-bellies.

We are judged by the quality of our certificates
and not by the content of our character.

Those in power cause great adversity
to the powerful masses
they have made powerless
through deceitful dispositions.

They have taken away our independence
so that we will depend on them.

They have made us to lose
our ornament and our purity.

They have made us to see
ourselves as worthless people
and exhibit contrary characters.

They think that their position
will give them character,
but not even power it has given to them,
but bad name and bad behavior.
