Our Politics_Of Images & Nuances


Politics in Africa is often said to be a game of images and nuances. Meaning it’s all about public relations more than substance (what we call EFIZI) in Nigeria. No matter how much serious policy wonks disagree with this, unfortunately we see it manifest everywhere, everyday!
But this particular legislooter, this sinator (Nigerianese for thieving senators) takes it to uncommon realms – from his absurd dressing to his garulous vituperations! But now he has topped himself (as if that were even possible) in ridiculous behavior with these photographs splashed on social media.
Anyway, could anyone who has access to this sinator remind him of one Yoruba adage: the child that abuses the Iroko tree and looks back should know that the Iroko tree takes its time to exact revenge! 
In other words, revenge is best served cold! I have a feeling he just messed with the wrong goon, and by this very act sang his own nunc demitis! 
He will surely be Jagabaned!!! He should ask alumnus of that genus who have had brush-ins with the man of Bourdillon..🏃🏾
I may very well be wrong. Only time will tell, wouldn’t it?
