Unfortunately, the political will to curb the excesses of government continues to be a reluctant venture, enhanced by the nasty shenanigans of the National Assembly of which dishonorably deserves a topic on its own.
And to us, Fela was the trailblazer, proof that you could forge your own path and be whatever you choose to be and that you don’t need to limit yourself to society’s restrictions, that being different is not an ailment.
Many are all too aware that the sacrificing of Minister Adeosun was only but a convenient tool in a seemingly fixable rupture. There are just too many instances when the government would have carried on indifferently.
