Road Accident

Because I Refused to Leave the Pedestrian Walkway for a Bus Driver to Drive, Mob Came After me - Man

There are some vices we've gotten used to in this country that have gradually turned into norms. The laws that are made to be guiding us as a nations, we've used the anger and agitation that the economy is bad to break them and thinking it's normal. Anyone seen trying to still hold unto the law, or perhaps refuses to heed to the societal pressure to go against the laws, is seen as an outcast or even jeered at for trying to stand out. 

An example is the throwing of cans inside gutters when we use them instead of disposing them properly, openly urinating in an open place and all sort of things that should be done right, but we refuse to because we believe the government isn't treating us right.

A man narrates what happened to him recently along Utako road in Abuja with a bus driver, who refused keeping to the laws as he tried maintaining his right. The man stated that he was walking that the pedestrian walkway when a traffic hit the main road. A driver then who couldn't wait for the traffic decided to follow the pedestrian walkway he's walking at, but he refused and insisted the driver used the main road. The people came against him and all efforts to make them see reasons with him proved abortive, as one had to slap him and he fell, then the people started making jest of him for standing for the law, as the driver zoomed off.

See below:

This happens everyday in our life as we've wrongs to be seen as right and yet, we blame the government for every corruption going on within the country but within us, we still do worse than them. Change starts with you and not just the government alone. Work on being a better citizen and should we all try to keep the right and also pray harder, the country will be better for those politicians were Nigerians first, before they grew up to become who they are.
