All my life, I have never underrated anyone’s intelligence and never will. When I make strategic decisions, I don’t ever underrate my opponents. I try hard to predict every move they can make and plan my strategy.
When it is all done, I never forget two things; unintended consequences and the hand of God in the affairs of men. I don’t do the end justify the means. After all, I don’t know how I came into being.
Amotekun is about our security. It is a political curveball. No politician should be allowed to play dice with our lives. Life is not zero-sum game. The foes of Amotekun within the Yoruba have failed to realize the real character of strategic change.
We the Yoruba are tired of lack of social mobility, opportunity and development. We clamor for change in the direction we are headed. We need a new thinking, a new way.
The purposeful choice of Yoruba political actors is all about about 2023. There is nothing wrong with ambition. What is wrong is sacrificing the hopes and aspirations of the Yoruba to get there.
It is a shame that those whom we had earlier regarded as masters of strategy are exposed as mere Ludo players and crass opportunists.
Otherwise, they should have known that strategic choice aimed at achieving a specific goal must be aware of environmental forces.
Change is always epiphenomenal to social entities and your case cannot be different. Change is the doings of things or the doing of something to things.
The change you want is your view of it. It is yours, not ours. Our own change is a collective view. You have not contributed to it.
You hate it because it does not serve you. You don’t own it. Unfortunately for you, the change we own, elevates chance, it is riddled with environmental uncertainty, and unintended consequences.
In strategy, not accounting for unowned view, based on choice, in plotting for strategic change, is often the cause of political deaths. Go and learn that.
What is Tinubu and Osinbajo’s view on Amotekun and how to secure the Yoruba? Ask them!
