DEFECTION- MY 2K THOUGHTS
Political Events are not any Cults, so, individuals have the constitutional proper to defect as soon as their pursuits are not protected!
Those that have the boldness to modify loyalty are usually not betrayers reasonably it’s those that keep on and plot the downfall of their get together, who’re the actual betrayers.
In any case, ranging from President Buhari to very many others together with the current one, Gov Dave Umahi are all defectors.
These like me who don’t perceive the intricacies of politics on this clime will proceed to forged aspersions on the actual politicians who perceive that politics is a severe enterprise. It’s stated that there are not any everlasting associates nor enemies however everlasting pursuits. There may be due to this fact nobody concerned in politics with out an curiosity! It solely is dependent upon how a lot of your pursuits are met and when they’re met. In any other case, being in a single place for a very long time with out making progress, then you’re but to satisfy your required objectives, if any.
I hear Gov Wike says Gov Umahi defected from APC to PDP due to his private ambition for the Presidency in 2023, nicely, that might be true and there may be nothing incorrect with that. It’s his inalienable proper. Surprisingly, Gov Wike who has been harvesting members of the APC in his state sees nothing incorrect with such defection which many describe as financially induced. Sure, everybody has a worth, regardless of the place they belong. That worth is the curiosity!
Those that sit and castigate defectors are oftentimes unaware of the challenges, pursuits and frustrations of those that dump their loyalty for an additional. Not many trouble to ask to know if there may be a fair distribution of the advantages accrued from the enterprise, but, we’re in a rush to assault those that have chosen their path of life.
Even those that don’t defect can not deny giving it a thought now and again, particularly when their pursuits endure repeated denials.
In the long run, solely those that place worth on themselves and can be valued!
On my half, defection is feasible cos I as soon as defected from PDP to PPA the second I used to be rigged out of a major election I clearly received. The choice to my ticket was to be appointed as a dumb SA to the Governor!
Not everybody is reasonable.
My solely problem is how I’m going to take a seat within the counsel of the identical individuals I stoutly fought on the opposite facet.
How do I make up with Dr Peter Odili whom I defied his orders to assist Rotimi Amaechi in opposition to Celestine Omehia? How do I apologize to Omehia for being one of many keyplayers who threw him out of energy after 5 months as Governor? What extra can I say of Austin Opara whose major election I scuttled. He is aware of and remembers very nicely what function I performed. Undecided he’ll ever forgive me.
What of my stiff opposition to Gov Wike? The commentaries are voluminous. Despite our closeness, I refused to assist him due to my unadulterated loyalty to Amaechi. But, it was a betrayal to a buddy with whom I labored exhausting to dethrone Omehia.
Make no mistake about it, I’m not caught nor am I below any oath. Relatively, I’ve performed politics with feelings leaving out the enterprise facet of it. Whereas life poses us with decisions and options at any time, it’s our accountability to decide on rightly to our advantages or we select wrongly to our pains and disappointment.
Let those that are positive of their convictions transfer forward whereas these of us who gamble with our destiny proceed to take action.
In all, it’s all about pursuits!
