We heard Uncle Federal Govt (FG) is trying to free Local Govt (LG) from the clutches of his elder brother, State Govt (SG). Was there no one to acquaint the Uncle to the fact that the two brothers (SG & LG) had an unholy union forged in hell? And to discontinue such, all hell must be let loose?
Maybe Uncle only did it to create a mirage of hope and to humour the millions of exploited people-of-his-households, clamouring incessantly for younger brother, LG’s shackles to be undone. Because, with the his freedom, the people-of-his-households anticipate brighter days, while the elder brother sees auto-reduction of ‘goodies’ to his compound.
Wait a second, perhaps my thought about uncle’s intention is too weird. He might just be tired of the elder brother stealing from his younger brother’s share of the monthly goodies. But can you blame me, I’m only used to how things work here in the Niger-Area.
