But here is the news …On August 9th, 2014 … Sunny Ofili (not Okechukwu Ofili) The Special Assistant to the Governor of Delta on Information and Communication Technology (ICT) died in a car accident. It was said that he died on the Benin-Onitsha highway when the vehicle he was travelling in rammed into a stationary lorry loaded with granite.

Nothing new to be honest, I can count the number of times (and they are a lot) that friends and family members have lost their lives on Nigerian roads. I know a friend who lost her 2 best friends and sister in an auto accident a day before her wedding day!

The causes of most of these deaths are the bad roads, poorly maintained vehicles and over speeding. But our government does not see it that way. That’s why on September 6 2014 during the burial of Sunny Ofili … the Delta state governor said and I quote from THISDAY:

“Over the years, I have learnt to control my anger but on the day he died, I was very angry over the circumstances of his death.” 

That’s right. The Delta state governor was upset about the circumstances of his death. 

“I asked myself why Sunny entered that vehicle.  He did not need to embark on that journey”.

The Governor urged Nigerians to pray against being at the wrong place at the wrong time noting, “When you wake up in the morning, pray not to be at the wrong place at the wrong time, pray against associating with the wrong people and pray against being dragged along with the wrong people at the wrong time.”

He did not use this opportunity to ask the Federal government to fix our federal roads, he did not even use the opportunity to warn drivers about over speeding or driving against traffic. What he said was that we should and I quote again “pray not to be at the wrong place at the wrong time.”

This has become the Nigeria mantra for survival, against Boko Haram just pray you are not at the wrong place at the wrong time. Against kidnappers better pray not to be at the wrong place at the wrong time. And if death befalls you…clearly you did not pray well or hard enough. Better upgrade your church or your tithes.

And our journalists…well they just copy and paste the bullshit and call it a day…another story written, another case close. THE END.

So Nigeria better be praying o because your government is working I mean praying for you. 

PS: RIP Sunny Ofili and may your death not be in vain.

  1. My frustration is that even the younger generation have become infected by the disease of ‘God will help us’.
    We have been giving everything it takes to make our lives better…that is God helping us and yet we sit there, arms outstretched, waiting for angel Michael to come down…

    What on earth does it take to fix bad roads, provide free healthcare and education, welfare for the underprivileged in the society???

    Our country has more resources, human and mineral to provide all these and more and yet we are one of the world’s poorest nations!!!

    I get so frustrated!!! A governor talking gibberish at the preventable loss of life… I just can’t…

  2. And I was hoping he would be angry enough to fix the road…I don’t know how we can change the mindset of these people in government. Yesterday, I saw in the newspaper people displaced from Bama queuing up at the nysc camp in maiduguri for relief items. I was just sad. Prayer without action in Nigeria has proved to be useless. What is the solution? Please people let’s think. Thanks Ofili for your thoughts on the matter.

    Ha ha, ofili, you share the same surname with the dead man. Sure he’s no relation of yours though. Over here in asaba, popular view is that he was in line to go to the house of assembly. Touted to be very close to the governor, you can imagine the governors grief. However, roads are not among the very few achievements of the delta state governor as the state is replete with horrible and deplorable roads. He has no moral standing to point accusing finger and so religion must take centre stage. Oh Nigeria!

  4. Adeshina Deborah on said:

    In this part of the world, Religion is a bane to the society. We leave everything to God, forgetting we have to do our part. We have to wakeup; set religion apart and do our part

  5. It just saddens me that a whole governor will wait for God to come and fix the roads. When will we learn biko?
    When naija disasters happen, Nigerians are quick to say “e go better”, “God dey” hian!
    In Nigeria, a 12 year old boy gets shot by trigger happy policemen and they say “Ehya, God knows best”
    81 year old Joan Rivers dies and we read “Gone too soon”
    See the difference.
