    Tola,

    I once said I was tired of complaining about the Federal Government after reading Lagbaja’s satire. There is no amount of press pressure or exposure that can eradicate corruption in Nigeria. So let us think of incremental alleviation of our societal problems. I suggest as follows.

    1. Let us have a program for addressing the unemployment situation in Nigeria. I can design one if they want me to do so. We have too many school leavers and no industry to absorb them.

    2. A lot of people in my age group who were civil servants and loyal enough not to have looted the treasury when in office have died in penury because retirement benefits and pensions were either delayed or denied by the people who succeeded them in government who now deride them for being honest Bible/Qur’an hugging government servants who believe in the morals of these spiritual books and the civil service regulations. Therefore, the Pensions Office should be automated so that people do not regret serving faithfully in office and then die on pension queues. This digital age, you do not need a lot of people in Pensions Offices because they are also part of the problem.

    I do not have time to write long essays. That is the summary of what I want to say. These are not new ideas. But I suggest that all recovered money by EFCC, ICPC, etc. should be channeled into this account as a start. After this, we can start looking at affordable housing program. I mean while politicians are making all the arguments and speeches in Abuja, this kind of program for the voting masses should be running underneath their rhetoric.

      Dear Dr.,

      You do not need to write anything longer than you have because you are right on the mark with these suggestions. I can feel your – what else can I call it it than exasperation because many of us who write all those “long” and, sometimes winding essays feel it: saying the same things over and over with no results to show for the efforts. I see exasperation in your making the effort to read a short notice to – presumably – mostly ladies about Oje Market day and then putting down your thoughts about a more serious issue: the problems that plague our country.

      What to do? We’ll keep on plodding on and citizens like you MUST keep on joining to raise your voices about these problems. Something will have to give at a point, and that should not be an indeterminate wait.

      Sincere regards,
      TOLA.

        Dear Mr. Mohammed,

        Thanks for weighing in on this old (2011) essay because the problems deliberately courted by governors who meddle in affairs that should be left solely to the people – are always on. Needless to say that what the destruction that retired army officer, Oyinlola as Osun’s governor did to the institution of traditional rulership in the state he ruled and left worse than he met it, will be felt for generations yet unborn. Millions are being expended in various communities to right the wrongs he caused through impositions of PDP-loyalists as traditional rulers.

        Coincidentally, retired Brigadier Oyinlola is from a ruling house at Okuku, a town in Osun State and so, these past acts may one day haunt him.

        Sincere regards,
        TOLA.
