I Hope Segalink Doesn’t Go Into Politics

Welcome to Nigeria, a place where SARS, a faction of the Nigeria Police, is terrorizing the people. And through the harassment and agony, there is one man who seems to be a glimmer of hope; his name is Segalink.

This man has been fighting police brutality in his own little way for quite a while, although, personally, I feel Nigeria still has a long way to go in the ‘police brutality department’, this man’s impact is still being felt. If not for him, things could have been worse, trust me.

But unlike a few freedom fighters, I hope MR Segalink doesn’t go into politics and here is my reason why.

There are only two things that can come out of someone like Segalink going into politics—it’s either he gets frustrated by the government or he gets frustrated by the people.

There are two major political parties in Nigeria and we know the amount of pollution a person is subjected to once they decide to be a part of them.

Nigerians are people that love their oppressors and enjoy their oppression, that can kill the spirit of someone like him, if he ever decides to go into politics.

Just take a look at the last election, we know there were much better candidates, but Nigerians enjoy being in the position to complain.

Anyways, slow and steady wins the race, Mr Segalink should continue doing what he is doing and stay away from the heartbreaking, dirty game of politics.

I know he would make a much bigger change in a place of office, but Nigerians aren’t ready.
