Don't get it Twisted. It's Burkina Faso, Not Nigeria

I'm sure you've heard about the happenings in the political scene of Burkina Faso today. But just in case you haven't. According to Aljazeera, hundreds of people broke through a security cordon and stormed the National Assembly building in the capital city, Ouagadougou few hours ago.


Now, is there any Good news in all these bad news? Yes. And yes. Heart Rays gives out the light in this dark world. *grins*

The good news is the people of Burkina Faso have finally woken up from their slumber. The people are protesting that 27 years in power is enough for Compaore. (Blaise Compaore has been the president of Burkina Faso since 1987. Choi!) President Compaore has been elected four times already and there is a bill proposing that he could be re-elected the fifth time.


But maka why na? Even if he is my biological father, I'll join this protest. Walahi! 



I like the spirit of coming together and fighting with one voice. "Enough is enough!"

                                 Two young men stand in front of a bonfire outside the parliament building in Ougadougou, Burkina Faso.

Nigeria, we can do this. Can't we? Oh, I almost forgot there are the Igbos, the Yorubas, and the Hausas amongst us.

Until then. . . Never under-estimate the power of the people with one voice!

Thanks for reading. :)

A country where you provide your own electricity, generate your own power, sink your own bore hole and even your own security is in trouble. Nigeria is in trouble!

A country built in injustice shall never last. Like Burkina Faso got justice today, so will Nigeria some day. I believe in Nigeria!

As much as I don't advocate violence this is probably the only language these idiotic siddon-put African leaders would understand. I'm glad for once the typical African complacency didn't kick in. Haba! 27 years?

Guess what? Blaise Compaore resigned. Now, this is what I'm talking about!

Nwamaka Ajaegbu said...

Burkina Faso Revolution didn't start with a hashtag & never had a hashtag. The people TOOK their DESTINY with their HANDS & not thru TWITTER.

Change will come to Nigeria only when Nigerians are pushed beyond their limit. For now, we can still bear the 'shit' we been given.
