interconnecting community has repercussions and one way or another it comes

back to us. Much like this principle and the law of Karma, in nearly every

religion and culture there is a fervent belief that the total result of a

person's deeds and actions during the successive phases of the person's

existence determines the feedback fate issues that person within their life

time or in the hereafter. It is further taught, ‘if we sow a thought we reap an

act, if we sow an act, we reap a habit, if we sow a habit, we reap a character

and if we sow a character, we reap a consequence.’

It is an important teaching in Christianity that God

is not mocked; whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. We cannot

escape the consequence of our actions

; everything that we do as participants in this

Hard View: Whatsoever A Man Soweth, That Shall He Also Reap

this message be reiterated than on our very own doorsteps where few people in

the corridors of power are determined to garner us towards a most debauched

consequence. Despite the outcry that continues to follow our recent irrational

and derisible presidential pardon of criminals and kleptomaniacs,

notwithstanding the embarrassment of the exposure of inept government

representatives who have to clarify the simplest questions from ‘their oga on

the top’, in spite of the plethora of blunders by this administration, reports

have been made of secret plans by a select few in the corridors of power who

are devising a very dangerous scheme to remain in power by using the tool of

alleged plot to unleash a terror attack in Lagos. The ink had barely dried on

that report when it was revealed that nine suspected terrorists were arrested

in a building in Lagos which belongs to a state government. Although the state

government has dissociated itself from the suspected terrorists arrested in its

building, the arrest of the alleged terrorists in that particular building has

fueled the conspiracy theory that Boko Haram has become a franchise under which

government fifth columnists are operating to further disrupt Nigeria and prompt

a national crisis likely to break up the country or force Nigerians to elongate

the tenure of this administration come 2015. If these reports are true, despite

the brink of disaster from which Nigeria has often come from, then the

consequence Nigeria finds itself in is truly pathetic and indeed sad; very sad.

Recently, reports were made of an


of a smouldering volcano that is ready and rearing to erupt at any given

moment, some of these signs point to definite elements within government and

around the president that are determined to unscrupulously elongate their

inhabitancy of power while damming the consequence of their actions. The more

they use their calling to lord over the next cause of action to divert Nigeria

away from a future; the more they plot and plan on how to fragment the country

using the tool of terrorism, the closer they advance us toward the trigger that

might commence the great explosion. While this great explosion may just be the

end result they scheme for, do they not care about what will happen to the

almost 160 million Nigerians already existing under pressure? No; because they

have completely become victims to a world where the intense lust for power and

money fully possesses its pray, so much so they no longer bother to camouflage

their voracity, guile, and self-serving actions. And to be able to satisfy the

worldly desires of a few, Nigeria and her helpless children are again being

short-changed by the intrigues of those who swore to protect them. The amount

of spin few in the corridors of power are running in order to achieve its

alleged aim moves faster than that of a tumble dryer. Anyone who doesn’t comply

is chewed out like a discarded piece of bubble gum and anyone who speaks

against it is threatened, stalked and victimized like a sub-human entity.

Although our country is situated on top

tried to double deal this country by either illegally elongating their tenure

in power through trickery, misusing their power or milking the coffers for what

it is worth have received their comeuppance in the most unfortunate of ways.

But despite the numerous failed administrations serving as an example, we are

again being besieged from within by tyranny, graft and disloyalty by a select

few who carry out secret meetings and come to secret agreements that they

earnestly, “Between them and God”, know is not in the best interest of the

majority of people of this country.

In the past, government officials who

advocating desecrating the fragment of the liberty we gained in the past are

the true enemies of the people of this nation. By turning Nigeria into a

business venture and a power podium they have betrayed the dreams of our past

and the hopes of our future. By planning to disregard common sense and behaving

as if the millions of us who have a stake in this country don’t exist, they create

and contribute to the disaster we find ourselves in. By steering our country

for purely personal ambitions, members of those few in the corridors of power

stand before us guilty as people who acted to disorganise Nigeria. If in the

coming months those who are in power succeed in bringing forth anymore anti

Constitution presidential pardons, more anti-people and anti-Nigerian policies

or terrorism conspiracies to further divide the country, history forever

will judge them reproachfully as those who were willing to pawn the future of

their children, grandchildren and great-great grandchildren.

The power hungry packs who are

this country, one is compelled to wonder whether we are fated thusly. Is the

giant of Africa perpetually condemned to an eternity of a greedy gaggle of few

government officials who mortgage our nation, disdain the interest of the

population and bleed Nigeria dry? This would appear to be our reality.

With decades of power mismanagement in

to take us to the Promised Land continue to short-change and fail us, then

maybe the masses of Nigeria as a collective need to take the requisite action

into their own hands. Our hindrance is that we are a nation divided and in

denial, we suffer from grave memory loss and are incredibly easy to manipulate.

People still look at freedom fighting with suspicion along ethnic and religious

lines. Igbo, Hausa, Yoruba, Gwari, Shekiri, Irogbo, Nupe, Eleme, Birom,

Langtang, Auchi, Fulani, Calabari, Tiv, Ogoni, Igbirra, and all the other 234

tribes of Nigeria; our struggles as humans are one and the same and unless we

realise and embrace this, then our torture will continue.

If those we had previously relied upon

will emerge and the seas will part open into two in order for Nigeria to be

saved. Maybe the solution lies not within the direction of a messiah but within

the strength of the masses of a nation that claims one in every five Africans.

If we consider the effect of the Ukrainian, Tunisian, Libyan, Egyptian and

Georgian peoples past resolve when the insult of their governments became

unbearable, we begin to realise the power of a people when they stand together

as one. Tyranny begets uprisings, when the government’s tyranny reaches its

zenith any more than it has now and the majority population realise they are

constantly staring at empty food bowls, empty government coffers, rigged

elections, alleged government induced insecurity, wicked governmental intrigue,

the situation may spew and the next mass action may really become mass.

We tend to also fantasize that a messiah

country off so that you can remain in power or spill the blood of innocent

Nigerians in order to split the nation up, lest you forget your actions all

have consequences. Make no mistake you cannot get away with the bad choices you

make for your nation, because history is recording everything you do. If you

sow badly in this season, you will reap worse in another, no matter how long it

takes. Even some of the greatest forces in Africa; Idi Amin, Mobutu Seseseko,

Haile Salasi, once bred the radiant rule of Monarchs. And for some time their

might nurtured their supremacy and reign over their countries but in the end,

they faced karma and all three ended up victims of the consequences of their

actions. None was even allowed to die in the nation he once commanded.

For those determined to flog this

the government corridors secretly meet to allegedly fuel terrorism and sow the

seed of ruin for Nigeria, they should be mindful not to be deceived; “God is

not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap… For he that

soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to

the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting."

Therefore, next time the ‘freemasons’ in

those who scheme to destroy the future of 160 million people!

May God expose
