TRUTH TRUMPS LOYALTY---MM
Loyalty can be a wonderfully awesome high virtue, but when embraced at the expense of TRUTH, it becomes STUPIDITY in my book.
One of the numerous obstacles to progress in Nigeria is the NEED for many of our folks to be rather viewed as being loyal to their friends, family, boss, pastor, etc, than be looked upon as one who rocks the boat even when precious TRUTH is at stake.
That's why their friends, family members, etc; would loot and commit several other atrocities against the nation and instead of confronting them and showing them the errors of their ways, they would condone it for fear of being labeled DISLOYAL.
Such misplaced and ridiculously irresponsible loyalty is even rampantly displayed almost daily amongst seemingly very intelligent Nigerians on Facebook and Twitter with friends loyally supporting friends at the expense of glaring TRUTH.
I for one don't care if you're my beloved mother, sister, best friend, boss, pastor, etc; etc; I will never knowingly stand with you in favor of anything detrimental to the progress of my country or knowingly stand with you against the TRUTH out of loyalty or anything else for that matter.
TO SAVE OUR DYING NATION AND OURSELVES, WE MUST ALL ENDEAVOR TO BREAK FREE FROM OUR NUMEROUS SHACKLES.
