When we write,do we just make quotations and forget history? I think that it will be wrong of us to think so narrowly when writing articles. Of recent, I have read many funny but illogical articles including this one. History told us that the first world war was fought because of the killing of one man. History also told us that the Arab Spring started with the dead of one trader who set himself ablaze.
If our late Obafemi Awolowo or Nnamdi Azikiwe had been killed by bomb blast just a few months to election, could we be talking of one Nigeria today? Writing with a bias is not good for the country. It may benefit the writer because of pecuniary gains but the larger society will lose both at the short run and the long run.
Nigerians must rejoice that Buhari escaped, whether he planned it himself or not would not have mattered as his followers would have gone wild. I still recall that the results of presidential election 2011 was washed with the blood of innocent Nigerians. I was only lucky that my daughter, serving in Kano State at the time, escaped being lynched. Same with my nice who served in Bauchi State at the same time.
Will it not be better to stop writing if facts are not at the disposal of the writer? Must one write nonsense all in the name of writing articles? This article falls below standard in this modern information age.
God save Nigeria.
