Stereotypic Nepotistic Politricks

When will the traditional stereotypes stop?

Why do we limit our choices for national elective positions?

Despite our huge diversifications?

We do North and South

Why can't we do East and West?

Why should north only bring a Muslim?

And south always a Christian?

Why can't a Christian President from Bauchi

Pair with the Muslim vice from Auchi?

Why can't the Muslim from Abakaliki

be viced by a Christian from Maiduguri?

What's wrong with having a Fulani Christian combine with an Ibo Muslim?

Are there no African traditional religionists who can lead the team? 

What about faithfuls of Ogun, Sango, Okija, Olokun, Osun? 

Like wise Iskokis, Iwya, Itse

Do Eckists, Rosicrucians, Cross bearers, Baha'i, Hindustanis, exist?

What about Atheist, Masons holy Arousa and Buddhist ? 

Beyond the psychological feeling of belonging

what have the people gained from ethnic and religious inclined following and voting?

The moon witness' us,
At the blouse of tensed sunset,
Love, the name we bare.

And crazy they went
Vows and promises they put on head
14/2 marks their death

Dear Valentine

Val' as you are,

Gently receding
Beneath the horizon 
Fom whence she did rise

In the hallow of your beauty my heart dwelled, I sight the beams, i smell the charms of your overwhelming perfume, the power of my enduring heart fails me; then I plight to love you forever!

Under the orange ray of dusk,

The sun is a mediator of two hands
Joined as one in love.

I just wish love can see me through the moonlight, set up a light for me in the darkness and guide me till am lost no more..
