Governance Will Degenerate To Lowest Level The Masses Can Tolerate, Don’t Blame Your Leaders – Former AG

In Breaking News, Politics

By Patrick Obia

Just as a Sierra Leon journalist and novelist, Syl Cheney-Coker in one of his poems (Myopia) said “on rainy mornings you will see them drenched, PEASANTS! shivering in their emaciated bones along the boulevards of misery, the boulevards of this country are railway tracks in my heart; a train of anguish runs on them, rage corollary of hunger. The ricepads of this country are putrid marshlands in my soul tended by no magic fertilizers.”

With the above expression of Cheney-Coker, former Attorney General of Cross River State, Barrister Attah Ochinke, Esquire, has asserted that, governance, in any society, will degenerate to lowest level the masses are willing to tolerate because the people have failed to hold their leaders to ransom of their policies and actions.

The Senior lawyer stated this in his official Facebook handle, positing that leaders are not to be blamed instead, the masses should blame themselves because they have given their leaders the upper hands to misgovern them.

“Governance, in any society, will degenerate to lowest level the masses are willing to tolerate. Don’t blame your leaders.” He said.

Governance, in any society, will degenerate to the lowest level the masses are willing to tolerate. Don't blame your leaders.

Ochinke’s statement refers to a society where the citizens sit-tight in low hidings, pray things get better without taking actions to press for good governance, thereby continue to waill in agony.

    For me I think Nigerian is the best nation on earth,if not for the menace of corruption and bad leadership.
    How did corruption rise to become an integral part of our national life?
    Our rising corruption profile could be linked to the steady disintegration of moral values in our society.🙄🙄
    Since the early 90’s especially, moral values has nose-dived.
    Today a man who steals a phone is kept in the police station, but a politician who steals money that are meant for development is been secure by heavy security agent, where did we go wrong by voting our leaders into public office.
    Our democracy a wash and wear uniform.
    Today, crooks and individuals with warped moral code are being celebrated across the country,under the school called progressivism.
    What is urgently required to redress the situation is a complete re-orientation that can cuts across all spectrum of the society.
    We need to change our value system as a people.
    We need to re-appraise our undue obsession with materialism and wealth accumulation.
    It is such mania that is partly responsible for the rot in our socio-politcal system.
    How come men of questionable characters and unproven integrity call the shot in our clime?
    The answer is simple.
    Money has become our God.
    Sadly, religious centres are not excluded from this craze!
    Neither are traditional institutions.
    Nowadays people place curses on their relations for upholding integrity and honesty while holding public offices.
    Until we re-order our priority as a people,we will continue to get it wrong.
    In the days of our founding fathers,men of ideas and principle were widely respected and honoured.
    National heroes like Herbert Macaulay,Obafemi Awolowo,Nnamdi Azikiwe, Ahmadu Bello,and Aminu Kanu among others did not rise to national prominence as a result of the fatness of bank account.
    👏👏 thank God is Friday.👍👍
