While the agents of darkness shattered the brightness of the Sunday morning in Owo, Ondo State, killing more than 50 people inside a Catholic Church, and while several incidents of carnage engulfed the length and breadth of the country, the ruling party somehow mustered the courage for a banquet.
The All Progressives Congress (APC) held another round of politicking, a sequel to the party primaries starting today, June 6. Politics couldn't even wait. It was all smiles and laughter at the banquet table as pictures suggest a comfortable gathering of individuals who are immune from the pains of the citizenry.
In attendance at the dinner banquet was no other than the President in his signature Katsina smile and his Vice, Professor Yemi Osinbajo glowing with the confidence of Nadal on the clay court. The worst Senate President ever, Ahmed Lawan, whose rubber-stamp Senate failed to hold the Buhari administration responsible.
The tears are still rolling down the cheeks of families and friends and the heart of the nation is bleeding, but those who hold the power to take decisive actions give Nigerians condolences and prayers while they return to the dinner table to gist on "emi lo kan". The beast among men.©Standard Gazette, 2021. Unauthorized use and/or duplication of this material without express and written permission from this site’s publisher is strictly prohibited.
