Prof. Yemi Osinbajo: Lessons from our Recent History

By Nelson Ekujumi

The greatest tragedy that has befallen humanity is that man is deaf, dumb & blind to history. Hence, it repeats itself time and time again. Because of their misdeeds, man doesn’t want to hear about the past, but whether we like, admit or not, whatever course of action we take today, becomes history which records and documents for posterity.

Yesterday, the Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo again revealed heart rendering and traumatizing information about the plundering and pillaging of the commonwealth by the previous administration of stealing is not corruption, when he stated that they shared N150 billion in 2 weeks before the 2015 general elections.

Like we say, truth is bitter, so to these category of people, they would rather that the present administration keeps mum on the outright stealing of public funds by its predecessor administration and carry on as if nothing happened while they should bear the brunt of empty and desolate treasury, but like we say, ko le werk.

Whether they like it or not, this administration owes us the responsibility of making public how we made so much money under the previous administration with nothing but pilfering of funds to show for it under an administration of a so called “hero of democracy”.

Accountability is one of the hallmarks of democracy and we commend the present administration for taking us down memory lane of what transpired before their assumption into office and the lesson we must all patriotically take home is that, the present administration has a responsibility to prevent a reoccurrence of this kind of violations of the rights of Nigerians which must not go unpunished.

The essence of history, is to prevent it from repeating itself, no more, no less.
