IR: Nigerian history is avoidably repetitious. If we, the people refuse to learn from the ugly history, we are doomed to repeat it. Men of yesterday are stealthily coming to sermon preach on how democracy should work in a nation that is determined to consign the roles of these men in previous administrations to the dustbin of history.

They are being taken with nonchalance by some of us. They are back, playing on the intelligence of unsuspecting Nigerians. They continue to give all of us collective dirty and resounding slaps each time we have a reprieve or break, from their heinous political and economic crimes against the Nigerian people.

Rueben Abatiís preachments in the media these days nauseate social norms and values. Femi Fani-Kayodeís seeming diarrhea of the mouth fouls our collective sense of history, decorum and decency. My literary selfishness in reading Abatiís articles these days is borne out only of his engagements in his literary construction. Not more than that.

Okupeís stealthy, shameless and pseudo-patriotism should be discountenanced. The unrepentant AGIPs are political 419ners trying to sneak back to relevance. Nigerians should beware of them.

The honest message to Nigerians is to beware, persevere and stay focused, discern the good intentions of this administration; be unpatronising in our criticisms of Buhariís government. When some members of the plebeians allow the double-speaking politicians to play on their intelligence; to allow some politically corrupt individuals dictate the pace of their future, they will not only be mortgaging their own future and that of their children, but also returning to their ugly past.
