Aside the fact that I love this pictorial design and I give kudos to the brain behind it, i also want to point out the effect of the Àmọ̀tẹ́kùn ideology on my precious Yoruba race.
The mentality of generalisation in Nigeria has forced us to believe that every Igbo is a business man, every begger is an Hausa man and every Yorubas is a potential traitor who will back out of every agreement in a die minute.
I have in so many places argue against this, but our disunity in South West is a strength to the assembly of those who choose to qualify an entire tribe with the attributes of the influencial few.
Yorubas are not traitors, Yorubas are not cowards, Yorubas are not betrayals. Yes, political agenda may force Obasanjo to have licked the ass of the Hausas, that was his choice and it does not in anyway represent the wish of the entire populace.
Yes, Tinubu may be too coward to voice out his opinion on different national issues because of his political aspirations, that’s his personal decision and should not be used as a yardstick to judge other Yorubas.
Àmọ̀tẹ́kùn brought unity in the South West to some extent, aside the June 12 annulment and the subsequent death of MKO Abiola, I have not seen a single event that received a united endorsement from almost all our political leaders.
On this, I give kudos to the brain behind Àmọ̀tẹ́kùn.
Of course, there is no family without a bastard, the likes of FFK who overbloat every issues as war and calamity and the like of Oyetola of Osun State who need to keep his mouth shut to remain in office. Verily verily I say unto you, they will get their reward.
Legality or illegality, Àmọ̀tẹ́kùn brought out the best in us, I wish we can extend a similar initiatives without legal back and forth to trade, innovation, education and shared prosperity.
More importantly, I wish my dear Ìgbómìnà can find her way to the midst of where she rightly belong.
Of Àmọ̀tẹ́kùn, it’s not of legality, it is of the ideology that binds us as one.
