PUBLIC OFFICE HOLDER vs PUBLIC OFFICE MATTER
In my senior secondary school days, Chemistry, Physics and Futher mathematics were my favourites. I love them so much that ranking the best among the 3 remained a big challenge. Till date, I can still give a very lucid account of my learnings in those classes. I thank my teachers!
One beautiful bright morning,our physics teacher asked us to define “matter”, some of us attempted to give a layman’s definition of “matter” using all manners of grammar.
Then he said, in physics, a “matter” is defined as anything that has weight/mass and occupies space.
Take away capacity from any public office holder and what you have is a public office matter.
Governance is not a mere Tempest in a Teapot, It is a very Serious Business.
Among other core values, it requires the INTEGRITY to govern, the COURAGE to lead and the CAPACITY to act right with patriotism in the general interest of all.
What a man lacks,he can not give. As the opportunity for Nigerians to elect public officers for another 4 years approaches, I sincerly hope and pray that we will priotise the right values and elect competent public office holders and not just vote public office matters.
I wish all Nigerians the very best.
God bless my country.
