OPINION: It is only when we are alive that we will live to do political campaigns and politicking, those that are politicising the killings may be the next victims, By James Kanyip


I cry deeply in my quiet time whenever the thoughts of these senseless and barbaric killings come to my mind. The inhumanity of man against man is unimaginable.

But, the worst of it all are those that see these killings as a potential political enterprise and campaign platforms to hoodwink the gullibles. In their small minds, they see these killings within political prism.

They have no empathy for the victims. They are excited each time there are killings to enable them have a field day for their political campaigns. This is senseless, to say the least. 

These trying times call for collective reasoning and solution. The killers do not kill on the basis of our political affiliations; their guns have no respect for followers of APC, PDP, or other parties: all are potential targets and victims. We are all in this together!

The issue is not about voting out APC, and/or voting in PDP (or vice versa), or any other opportunity for political interswitch. Besides, both parties are in this government. It is about the preservation of both our collective existence as a people and our common humanity. 

It is only when we are alive that we will live to do political campaigns and politicking. Those that are politicising the killings may be the next victims. Who knows?
