Why Some Nigerians Are Dwelling In Denial
Many Nigerians are (mini) psychopaths and our priggish nature has blinded us to the truth in our society.
We have now managed to create a society the place some folks need to scramble for meals: essentially the most primary on the hierarchy of wants. Had been we anticipating them to attend until they fall sick and die out of starvation? If you are going to blame a poorly behaved youngster, you’ll want to look at his/her mother and father who’ve most likely modeled for him such behaviour. Sane societies are merchandise of excellent management throughout the board, when kids behave effectively outdoors, go and have a look at the house they arrive from.
Nigerians appear to neglect that the actual looters are the political and enterprise elites who we worship. The richest amongst us are merchandise of this present corrupted system, who can’t survive the place there are order and a few degree of equal alternatives for all residents.
Many people won’t ever name them out due to the concern of offending somebody they’re coveting his/her form of “blessing”. Others are middle-class folks whose cause/excuse is that their livelihood depends on beneficiaries of those corrupted megalomaniacs; therefore they can not see or communicate the reality. It is also that we’ve got to seem like politically, culturally and or religiously appropriate, however, it is simple to sentence thugs and poor those that looted palliative warehouses – ignoring the truth that they exist because of our warped sociopolitical system.
Right here on social media, I’ve seen many so-called educated Nigerian defending or standing on the fence about whether or not folks had been killed at #Lekkitollgate by our personal Military, their excuse is that there are some photoshopped photos. I’m like…actually???! Once we’ve seen Lagos state governor admitted, denied and denied and later admitted that there have been two fatalities and plenty of wounded by gunshots?
I’ve seen a medical physician on TL denied that protesters had been disrupted and attacked by sponsored thugs. Sadly, such individuals are disturbed that a few of these irrational parts whose providers politicians typically used burned down public buildings and personal companies, and looted no matter they’ll. Who is aware of, it could have been organized by brokers of these in energy to make protesters look dangerous – till it bought out of hand after which it boomerang.
These classes of individuals are unconcerned that males in navy uniform had been seen/filmed capturing at peaceable protesters by a number of witnesses, however they’re apprehensive that a few of the photos/movies might have been doctored. Why ought to we imagine that the movies/photos from the looting and burned down buildings are genuine however fully discard these from Lekki capturing?
Any society the place an affordable variety of folks have the propensity to disclaim apparent reality is tilting in direction of self-destruction. If righteousness exalts a nation, this deliberate lie will solely carry reproach if care isn’t taken.
