I know very well that not many Nigerians have considered the destructive power of hate in the values and relationship of a society.
Hate possesses extreme potent capabilities beyond human imagination. It damages everything wherever it is offered access and accommodated.
The unique thing about hate is that it does not invade any persons, community nor society. It only responds to invitations. It leaves no one in doubt of its presence. Hate's host hardly ever recovers from her impact.
Our society and in fact Nigeria suffers from the consequence of hate advocacy by the leaders and opinion moulders of the people. Religious leaders in most cases lay the foundation of hate culture while the political leaders propagate hate in order to achieve political gains. The entire society suffers and at the same time compliments those that have invited harm upon them.
Ethnic and religious discrimination are the two most ballistic arsenals that drives hate like a laser guided warhead.
Should the advocates of ethnicity and dichotomy suspend their havoc on the Nigerian people, we shall cease to witness the retrogressive culture of North, South, East and West. Agitation for self determinations will become a thing of the past and engagement in public services on the basis of quota will make way for merit and competence.
