Try Empathy

My fear is not loosing it all,

my fear is seeing everything go down beyond fix.

We cannot keep folding our arms and watch things destroy beyond repair.

It is that bad that the alternative is becoming a dead end.

We cannot get tired of complaining or just keep watching and folding our arms,

We will not let sleeping dog lie and not watch it destroy totally.

In my country, we love to count our chickens before they are hatched and we do not pull the bulls by the horn.

Not until life is lost on this road (Tincan- Coconut; Apapa Oshodi Expressway axis) before immediate action will be taken,

Something should be done before it’s too late.

Only we involved can relate, whenever I see this, I feel sad and slightly happy.

I always bear in mind that we are our own natural disaster. Imagine the waste, it blocks the drainage and when it rains, there won’t be free flow of water which will cause flooded road and it destroys it

This is the service lane side of coconut, Apapa Oshodi Expressway, it’s now very bad.

Yes we know the road has been awarded to the contractors and those to fund it are well aware of it but when will it be executed?

When my people choose to clean the drainage, they keep it by the road sir and when it rains it flushes back in or spreads to the road. Wow! How sensible! And it is this same we(us) that throws the waste in the drainage, I won’t leave myself out. We all are guilty!

My take is we try empathy and put ourselves in other people’s shoe, we all are suffering this together, especially on this road.

For lifting of petroleum products, its this road.

For lifting of imported goods, its this road.

And it is left horrible.

When we are in power to do things or to help others,

Let us bear in mind we are helping ourselves and not just those peoples we intend helping.

Whatever we want to do should be perfectly done to the Glory of the Almighty.

Remember, the boat might be moving forward, but it is peddled back and forth.

The ticking clock stops only when faulty but it still comes back to where it began.
