Please be advised, this might be slightly unexpected.
So in the past couple of weeks, we’ve had a saga involving the man Dino (or Ronal-dino) Melaye. The major idea is that Dino didn’t know his exact graduation date (pun intended). And who is to blame him, we have had head of states who didn’t find their SSCE results or know their actual ages (I apologize if I just shaded a relative of yours).
I’m a great fan of Ronaldihno (the actual footballer) whose legendary skill was the stuff of legend. His famed dribbles were a case of “the more you look, the less you see”. Our Dino tried to display such dribble tactics after claiming to have graduated from both Havard University and Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria. His skills however were not properly fine tuned and they led to a drastic downturn as and when both universities denied him. Shortly after this, he launched a video on the internet (for no actual reason, and to challenge no one in particular).
Dino was right in both concepts he launched in his video. The first is that if you are not capable of the fight; don’t try to upset the big man. The second is that all will die regardless of if we tell the truth or not.
So I will proceed to stand behind our Dino to say that regardless of whether he graduated from the university or not, he is a great man and he has achieved quite a lot in less than 20 years (if he graduated around the year 2000 or 2001). He has risen through the ranks, he has joined the gods and he has exhibited typical god behavior. He told us a blatant lie right to our faces when he knew (and maybe he didn’t realize) that we would find out the truth. He stood strong and unashamed, and for that he is more of a man than many a man.
The scenario however has deprived me of sleep and some questions brew in the pits of my belly:
Is our plan of waiting for the gods to die off not silly seeing as they spawn?
Will there ever be change?
Will the future generations have anything at all when they get here?
Who will save us?
What is the point of it all?
