Until one Simeon Nwakaudu and his low life counterpart, Soibi Max-Alalibo were invited to come and chop by Emperor Nyesom Wike, what were they really worth? Or to put it better, who had heard of them?
Consequences of nothing, seeking nothing and achieving nothing. The only thing to their names is their names. Nothing more or so it seems.
Today, because of small offering, they are now barking, wagging their tails like small dogs expecting bone crumbs from their master’s dinner table and unsure of whether they would be chained or not for the night.
A respected Rivers son and an internationally acclaimed administrator, Dr. Dakuku Peterside had admonished Emperor Wike over the demolition of hotels in Eleme, questioning the propriety of such action.
Peterside further advised that Wike was travelling the route of Fascist Benito Mussolini and Emperor Adolf Hitler, calling on him to change from the expressway he was travelling through.
Millions of Nigerians even took the governor to the cleaners across all social media platforms, including Wike’s official handles on Twitter and Facebook over the demolition.
Respected legal luminaries and public affairs analysts across the country soaked the governor’s action in unkind words, with some questioning his legal background.
However, the duo of Nwakaudu and Max-Alalibo, who barks at everything passing, even when they have no capacity or do not profess to have any content, just to be paid, have gone mad and are dancing to the music of wickedness cooked by their master.
Dakuku Adol Peterside, Ph.D is well above your weight in content, depth, reason, being, verve, emotion, and intellect. Even Emperor Wike knows and respects himself when it comes to debates.
My humble advice for both journeymen is to retreat to their dungeons, lick whatever that is available and not shout too much.
Afterall, it is well established that you don’t talk while eating. Since both of them were invited to come and eat, it makes sense do so in quiet corners and not to be noticed.
Both of them should even be ashamed that Rivers State government under Emperor Wike has had a terrible communication gap.
Daily, Rivers people are confused, confounded, disenchanted and bemused at the way and manner the state government communicates.
According to Bernard Shaw, “The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place.”
If you humble yourselves, I will sponsor both of you, including the Commissioner for Information, Paulinus Nsirim, to refresher courses on good communication policies and strategies.
According to Josef Stalin, “Education is a weapon whose effects depend on who holds it in his hands and at whom it is aimed.”
