This Is Not Breaking Satirical News… and before you start panicking I am still alive.
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.
