Then of course, dear old Mayor Herbert George Williamsâ€™ arrival though unannounced has for the time being stopped many tongues wagging. He was rumored to have earlier left the shores of Sierra Leone under circumstances that are yet to be made clear. Did I hear someone say since Mayor Williams left the shores without announcing, he owes no one an apology for arriving back in Freetown without announcing? Well, well.
Worst of all, most people in the working class do not receive their salaries promptly. Some people are only paid their salaries five to ten days after the month ends.
Apart from that class of people, others have gone for months without receiving salaries.
The situation in Sierra Leone is very pathetic. Why are employers dragging their feet to pay people their meager salaries? Some people only use their salaries to pay debts and the delay in giving them such salaries is making matters worse.
My ancestors are glad that this new team at the ABC secretariat has not toed the line of its predecessors. The past ABC team did not only let down President Koroma, but succeeded in getting their names on the wrong side of the countryâ€™s history. Posterity will judge them.
This Ariogbo knows IJK to be a much respected woman of substance, and knows less about Kadie Johnson Cole. IJK should have known that leadership is no child play. There are a lot of things a leader should allow to pass, at least for image sake.
Talking about love, who is David Cameron to tell us to legalize same sex marriage? Does he think we can sell our culture for pittances? I pray our government does not succumb to the intimidation of or formal colonial masters. Or else, we will revert to being the slaves we were. And the next thing the white people will do is to ban all our traditional societies, including paddle, bondo, and Ariogbo. This is an affront to Africa.
Paddle has come and gone, and we will not have the opportunity to see it again until next year. Unlike we the Ariogbos and other colleagues in the masked devil category that do come out frequently for people to see us, Paddle comes out once every year. So if you did not have the opportunity to see it yesterday, then make it a date to see it next year.
Humans must be wondering how come this Ariogbo knows so much about this Muslim holiday. Others are even questioning why is the Ariogbo observing a Muslim holiday?
Well, let me help you with the answers. I told you earlier that this Devil can read and write Arabic and English, which means he is abreast with most of the provisions of the Holy Quran and the Holy Bible.
Also, why not observe the holiday, especially so when it is going to be a government declared holiday? Do you think this Ariogbo is above the law? Duya nor gimme trouble ya.
