Season of Probes
Recently, the Nigerian atmosphere has been inundated with probes and more probes. No doubt, in trying to recall, one would easily be forgiven for skipping out on one or two.
However, I may take the pleasure of reminding us all, but please kindly forgive me as well if I miss out on any. Here you go; Fuel Subsidy Probe, Pension Commission Probe, Security & Exchange Commission Probe... In a Season of Probes as these, it would be too early to conclude on the list, especially as the National Assembly has found itself a new job description (seemingly permanent one for that matter, at least for this season).
Though, on a second thought, should we be looking forward to an abrupt end to these season of probes? Especially with the recent counter-revelations of which turned the Judge to an Accused? I mean, we might not be off-track if we do not expect any more probes as the 'Judges' may have just come to terms with the fact that, the Accused could at anytime become the Accuser, more-so on LIVE TV.
Now seriously, if this season ends as a result of the new found boldness of those accused, would we be right to say that our dear Season of Probes has finally bitten the dust at the behest of Mutual Corruption?
If all ends this way, at least we can boldly say that while it lasted, it sure gave us Something to Talk About. O yes, Something to Talk About, after-all, that's the best we always ever get whenever our Season of Probes hits our airwaves..
The End. **Ejects the DVD**. Till next time.
Eta, I must say that no one could have been able to put this any better. Wonderful piece.ReplyDelete
