Looking at what Is happening these sodding days, one would agree with me that everything has been turned upside down and morality no longer function on this blue dot many refer to as the world. Only those who had lived in the past actually practiced morality to the fullest. And we,  the duplicates of the people of the olden days know nothing of it. It is quite appalling!

What then is Morality?  According to The Cambridge Advanced Learner's Dictionary, Third Edition, "Morality is a personal or social set of standards for good or bad behavior and character, or the quality of being right, honest or acceptable. "

"Immorality" is the opposite of "morality" and Nigeria as a country is quite perfect in the practice of it. The zoo is the giant in all these abhorrent acts that are prevalent on this planet earth.

Have you ever read the story of Oedipus? You know,  when I arose this morning, the thought about OEDIPUS filled my mind.  He was a Greek hero.  He was a king.  Good King Oedipus!

When Oedipus realized that he had unknowingly killed his own father and was sleeping or rather having carnal knowledge of his own mother,  and because of his crimes,  plagues were ravaging his city because of what he had done,  he plucked his own eyes out and then he left.  He did not feel innocent,  not at all, not even a slight of it. Rather he felt that he had to punish himself. And that he did willingly so that others may live.

Now compare Oedipus' case with those we call our leaders today,  especially in the contraption called Nigeria. They always feel innocent. And when their atrocities finally become known,  you will then hear them cry out..."Ah,  my people, we didn't know,  we weren't aware what was actually going on!  our consciences are clear! These are the likes of  Peter Obi,  Willie Obiano and the rest of them holding the mantle of leadership in the zoo.

But the difference is,  the most important difference is that they remain in power! After embezzling public funds,  indulging in all manner of atrocious acts,  they still remain in power!  They always feel (at least, it is how they make people see it) innocent of those dubious acts. And that does not portray good leadership in any way shape or form. Those who make a good living out of other people's suffering are not worthy to be referred to as good leaders.

All am trying to say here is that MORALITY HAS CHANGED SINCE THOSE GOOD LEADERS THAT HAD EXISTED IN THE PAST, the likes of  Oedipus.
