LETTER TO Oluwabamiwo Ajasa..........."A WASTED GENERATION". To your tent Oh Israel, is an eye for an eye that will only take us to the precipice of war. To the dead on arrival national congress, I make bold to ask: "what good can come out of Israel?" The mess Nigeria is in today is the reality - or surreality - of the historic moment in which we find ourselves. With 2015, just a minute away and the only people we can call Messiahs are MUHAMMADU BUHARI, ASIWAJU BOLA TINUBU and President GOODLUCK EBELE JONATHAN, to be serious about Nigeria, is to be radical. Every sensible person, most Nigerians included,would know that doing the same thing over and over again, yet expecting a different result is tantamount to insanity. The connection of our past leaders to our present day myriad of problems is no coincidence. The madness and sadness that has characterized all Nigerian administrations, to the wrecking ball that is the GEJ administration has become, can be linked to them. Nobel laureate Wole Soyinka, called his generation "WASTED". A withering but precise indictment of a generation that still suffers from the post traumatic syndrome of the Biafran civil war. A generation that cherish tribalism. Why then does our generation continue to look up to, BUHARI, IBRAHIM BABANGIDA and OLUSEGUN OBASANJO, has people that will turn our water into wine? The major problem with Nigeria is that our generation which is full of promises; arguably the best educated in the history of Nigeria, has been contaminated by "THE WASTED GENERATION". There is something incongruous about how ardent we put our faith, our future in the hands of these godfathers. Their appetite for adulation is matched by our penchant for demagoguery. Our undiagnosed amnesia, the cornerstone of their sustained popularity. When the ignorance of the people scales the Olympian heights that ours has scaled, it means nothing but catastrophe for a country. What we are in dire need of in Nigeria, are revolutionaries not reformers! We need MEN in our generation to step up like yesterday. To hold together a country that is on the verge of fracturing. It is nothing short of absurd to think that people who themselves are the main problem, can solve our myriad of problems. After all, they are the ones responsible for the destructive polarization of the Nigerian society. We need people with a better sense of direction than GOODLUCK EBELE JONATHAN. We need people with more movement than BUHARI. We need people with more subtlety and vision than ASIWAJU BOLA TINUBU. With majority of Nigerians feeling blue about how long the country has been on the wrong track. Our generation need to step out and seek a kind of integration, which embraces the positive aspect of what the founding of the country meant it to be. That is, getting the country back on the right track with prudence,realism and COMMONSENSE. The modus operandi of "THE WASTED GENERATION" is to divide us in other to rule us. We need to challenge the one percent and the status quo. Our generation need to stop this senseless "follow follow" and "I don't care" syndrome. Olu, I don't know about you but I am tired of pass me "ajekus" (left overs). We need to blaze a trail of progressive reform and political actions. Rid our country of the mindless, recalcitrant ancient of days leaders. Institutionalized corruption and the talismanic hold they have on us. Let me succinctly remind you sir, that we are all within the homogenizing gaze of power. Under the ugly skin the outside World love to talk about, are a well educated, well traveled and comprehensively wired people.

A better Nigeria can only start with us................. And it should start NOW. Do not go where path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail. -Ralph Waldo Emerson. This one especially for Alhaji T. A. Badmus. Dupsy Akinboro,a teacher's reward is in heaven. Our father is with his Father in Heaven. For Yeni Anikulapo-Kuti and Oludare Mayowa may their memories be a source of blessings to the wonderful people they left behind. The Lord knows best. — with Alex Akinyele Jp and 19 others
