Fola Ojo asserts, “Some are just greedy beings. Greed. He gave it as the reason for fuel scarcity in Lagos and other parts of the country. Call it what you wish in any linguistic tongue of your choosing. In fact, there is no reasonable businessman in this business that can sell below N180 per litre,” he said. Brand it what you want, it is known by sundry nomenclatures. Nigerians took to social media, calling out the All Progressives Congress, APC, over the fuel scarcity which seems to be recurring this year. Avarice. Specialists recommended that a bone marrow biopsy be performed, and samples were sent to a US laboratory, and he was diagnosed with “intermediate risk” myelodysplastic syndrome, a type of cancer that hinders the production of blood cells.

Avidity. Now, we have fuel scarcity every 10 market days. “For you to load a litre of petrol, you will pay N162 per litre. Rapacity. Covetousness.” @IshamMichaels “Fuel scarcity, traffic due to fuel queue, No bikes, getting late to work is almost inevitable. They all descend from the same genre. “So, If you add N8 to N162, you already have N170 and this product is regulated by the government and the government wants us to sell at N165. The demonic desire to dig in for more.” @ObalendeChimamanda “The last fuel scarcity wasn’t even up to 3 months ago, we’re being governed by animals and if you guys like don’t use your brains in 2023. The disease can be caused “by a genetic disorder that develops silently and appears after the age of 60,” Sandoval said.

The zest to salivate for what you have no need for even when you have enough.” It surely cannot be argued that this foul spirit of more (Greed) is a major cause of corruption in our country. This country is a total mess. “You know what diesel says now, and you know how epileptic power supply is. How can we explain the stealing of billions of naira by an individual? Such incidence is common these days. So Fola Ojo is perfectly correct to describe it as demonic. To the Nigerian Youth and entire citizenry, this will be your reality for the next 8 years if you fail to take keen interest in voting in 2023. There has been no satisfactory explanation and justification for the existence of evil on earth. Long queues at filling stations have resurfaced in the country’s economic capital, Lagos, on Monday causing traffic and untold hardship to the people.

And there cannot be. Imagine us having 24hrs light and we don’t need generators, only cars and bikes cannot use so much fuel daily. Genuine satisfaction, contentment, as well as true inner happiness, absolutely banish the foul spirit of more or greed. Indeed, whoever experiences such personal satisfaction must discover that less is more.” @ O_nifesq “There was light all day yesterday, today that fuel scarcity started, they refused to bring the light. Quality journalism costs money. And that irrefutably, more is less. No material acquisition or possession brings such contentment.” @Bukola “Talking about the current state of this country is a very depressing topic for me.

It is a spiritual reward for a fair striving for good and general love for all mankind.. This should be the goal of all well-meaning people. Week in week out, there’s always some bad news. The desire to do more, to get more, never to rest on our oars, is probably divinely ordained because stagnation is not only retrogression but it could lead and indeed does lead to death. For only in perpetual movement is radiant health and peace guaranteed.” Related Topics:. It is this unconscious awareness that one must continue to toil in order to be a useful link or member of this wonderful and wondrous creation that urges and pushes and pulls one to work unstoppably.

But there is a great lack of understanding in this matter. Knowledge of the fact that only in giving can one truly receive appears to be in dearth in the rank and file of those obsessed with or ruled or dominated by the foul spirit of more. If what we acquire is equitably used to enable and ennoble others to be on their feet, greed would disappear and a more robust, happy society could emerge. Surely, this spirit of helpfulness and cooperativeness can culminate in a great reduction in crime. As we are given more, we ought to reflect and act in the furtherance of others to enhance the common good, thereby highlighting the utilitarian principle.

As we all know, any overload weighs down the object carrying the load. The same thing happens to a morbid sense of acquisitiveness. Possessions should be revalued, explored and exploited to help others live. And yet, perhaps, it is easier said than done. How? It is an open secret that not uncommonly, many have turned against their benefactors to either harm or out rightly eliminate them.

Such beneficiaries easily quickly forget how needy they were before they were supported to get out of a life of want and painful deprivations. Some even fail to show gratitude to the one who led them to the desired goal. When I say gratitude, it means simply saying thank you, not gift presentation. It may surprise some to hear that some people do not and/or cannot say thank you no matter what you do for them. Related News .
