Last Saturday’s Local Government Elections: How I Voted

Saturday’s Local Government Elections: How I Voted

I was extremely feeled
with joy when I learnt about the movement restriction on Saturday morning. I
knew categorically well that it would be the only reason for me to stay indoors
on a Saturday. My weekends are the only time I have absolute control over and I
like to take care of my private businesses during the weekends. This is because
Sterling Bank pays for Monday to Friday but I still need to do my own thing (One road no enter market, you know). So,
Saturdays and Sundays are dedicated to the young man’s private hustle. I am
sure my mom was very happy too because all her complaints on the fact that I
hardly get any rest always falls on deaf ears. I am not disobedient, I just
have to be present in those business meetings and part take in those
discussions because you cannot absolutely trust people when that amount of
money is involved and so that they can remember your face when the cake is
fully baked.

So, the restriction was a
blessing, I woke up early in the morning to tidy up some things like I usually
do on Saturdays. I wanted to conclude these assignments and start another round
of sleep. Very cold weather, I decided to sip some tea while I watch the
concluding part of that movie. I was still feeling sleepy. I just went straight
to the bedroom for the second round of sleep. 25 to 30 minutes in the
wonderland, the noise from some miscreants in my area arguing on some
irrelevant issues woke me up. I even learnt that the patrol Police intervention
could not stop these hoodlums for creating a scene. I quickly rushed out to see
for myself what the problem was. I noticed that it was just a group of people
arguing on an irrelevant subject.

I wanted to go back to
sleep but I noticed that that lovely street football we really enjoy when we
were younger was on again. I quickly dashed down, I was surprised that everyone
else was already there except ‘Wole.’ It took only a few controls and passes
from me to remember that old age is catching up with me gradually. I started
blaming myself for my ill-advised decision. ‘I
should have just return to bed’
. I thought

So, I visited this my
friend later in the evening and I noticed that he was doing the same thing I
did earlier in the day – Sleeping instead
of voting
. We had a few discussions and I was ready to leave around 6:00 pm
when he told me about all the unforeseen cost he had to incur to make sure his
business keeps on going and I really felt his pain. I got home about 7:00 pm and I
was on the bed when that call came in. We spoke for over 30 minutes on the
phone and none of us wanted to end the conversation. We just kept going on and
on.

Oh, I thought this article
was meant to inform you guys about how I voted. Honestly, I did not even know
who the contestants in my area were.

God Bless Us All
