'I am fully persuaded that since we have always been in the forefront of advocacy for restoration of federalism we lost to the ‘soldiers of fortune’ in 1966, we should remove the logs in our eyes first before looking at others.' m_oloja .

This week, I was prepared to write on one of those ‘national topics’ as we often do when I received a post on ‘whether Ondo State is jinxed,’ forwarded by one of my big brothers, Uncle Eric Teniola, who hails from Ondo state.

An assessment of power outage makes the state the worst hit in Nigeria today. All towns and villages in the South and the North except Owo/Ikare/Akungba have been in darkness between 3 and 6 years… In the East both legislators and governors lobby and make noise, even blackmail to attract federal funds and projects but where are our own federal projects in three and half years?

The post on the debacle in Ondo is actually a metaphor to tell the gory tale in today’s Western Nigeria, we now call South West for the purpose of power and revenue sharing. All journalists from the organic Western region have similar lines to write about the five states in the underreported region, which used to harbour the once vibrant and influential Lagos-Ibadan axis of the Nigerian press. The axis is now history.

Answers to these questions about the state of the Yoruba nation may blow in the wind. There are no easy answers but they just go to show that we have been flying over our decrepit road infrastructure, to ask questions in the nation’s capital, Abuja.
