My people and her manipulators by Enenche Enenche (Comedian)

Written By Idoma Television on Saturday, June 27, 2015 | 1:34:00 PM

The way my people back home are being manipulated is very funny and saddened. They have eyes, but only few are seeing.
Few weeks to elections, the electioneering merchandisers would storm home with salts, scholarship forms, sign posts of ongoing projects... After elections they disappear.
We now have strong men whose hobbies are to destroy men and institutions. When you proved to want to be independent of their electioneering empire; you become a target of mischief.
They know the game of Machievelli, but unknown to them; not only have some of us read the Machievelli laws, we now know how to decode them.

Gadafi with all his absolute powers, still fell because Machievelli couldn't safe him. Machievelli fails. It has failed so many people and still failing more.
Here are some of the Machievellian lies;
'It is better to be feared than to be loved."

"Try to avoid being hated, except during times of war."
"A capable leader must act with cunning and, if necessary, force."
"Don't empower your followers, if you must empower; empower the weak to frustrate the strong"
"People will inevitably lie to you, so it is, therefore, acceptable for you to lie to them."
"Trust no one."

True leadership is a function of inspiration and not of manipulation. Many leaders these days find it difficult to inspire, so they result to the perverted form of manipulation.
True leadership shows in the well being of followership.
My people back home need true leadership, but I think they need true mental freedom more.
They witness the commissioning of projects that never exist and if they do, have little or no impact on their lives.
They witnessed the land breaking ceremony of a Dam, up till date; they are still in the prison of that hope.

They witnessed the commissioning of a TV station, today the station is off air.
They just witnessed few days to elections, the land breaking ceremony of a College of Health Sciences... it is our prayer it works.
Few days to 2019 elections, they may witness the foundation laying ceremony of Otukpo Airport.
Few weeks to 2023 elections, they may witnessed the ground breaking ceremony of Otukpo Refineries or Seaport.

I see the end of a Machievellian era. What I am interested in, is the freedom of my people... I love freedom!
I am not a free man, if while I enjoy freedom, my people are in bondage.
Steve Biko would say; " The greatest weapon in the hand of the oppressor, is the mind of the oppressed."

All my people back home need is true mental freedom... How do we go about this? I am confused... please suggest the way forward.
Those who are still under the influence of sycophantic wine of shallow minds, would never see the truth in this, but those who would never sacrifice posterity on the altar of "prosperity" would surely do... they are the minds I am looking out for.
I rest my case and good night.
