Dial Double D for Democracy & Ile Oba t’Ojo By Pius Adesanmi
Governor Danbaba Suntai’s plane mishap is unfortunate. I rejoice with him for surviving the crash. I commiserate with the families of those who perished in the crash. As the Nigerian trademark of accusations and counter-accusations over the tardiness of even the simulacrum of search and rescue operations we operate in accident circumstances have already set in; as we hear that preparations are on course to airlift yet another member of Nigeria’s rulership for treatment in a foreign hospital built by politicians with much less money and much more brain power than the rulers of Nigeria, we must pause to reflect on the teachable moments of this accident.
