THE ABAH ABAHS OF OUR VILLAGE ASSOCIATIONS
Abah Abah is accused of directing VAT to his private account at CBC bank. This is not only wicked but devilish. How can the poor contribute their money and give you to help in developing them but you decide to use it for your personal effects. What Abah Abah did is also common in most of our local Development Associations common in the North and South west provinces. The executives of most of these Associations with the help of the treasurers swindle the money of the poor “buyam sellam”, Taxi Men, wine Tapers etc... leaving them at the mercy of poverty. Most of these associations come up with very nice and ambitious programmes to develop their localities; is it constructing a bridge, opening up roads or electrifying the village? When the fund is donated wilfully,or collected forcefully from the indigenes of the said locality, most of this money ends up in the pockets of the executives. Year in year out, executives change and the same scenario repeats while the village dies out in poverty and underdevelopment. Abah Abah has fallen but soon, those treasurers in our village associations need to give a true account of what they have done with the funds they deduct from our yearly savings or that which is wilfully donated for the development of our respective villages.

HE WHO STEALS FROM A SICK OR DYING MAN IS CURSED
In most of our traditions, what is destines for the sick or dying is treated with much care, respect and there is a strict accountability for his asserts. In circumstances when such a person dies, what was meant for him is brought out and placed for all to see and the family will decide on its utilisation based on the dead persons will if any.
For Olanguena Awono and his collaborators to have embezzled the AIDS/Malaria/Tuberculosis fund is stealing from a sick or dying man. This is a curse and any other person involves in this act, arrested or not, known or not is also cursed. According to most of our traditions, such a curse is only relieved when what was stolen is given back to whosoever it was stolen from. If the person is dead, it should be given to his wife or children or close relatives clearly stating the motives behind. All those who have dipped their hands in the AIDS/Malaria/Tuberculosis fund should pay this money back into the fund to be free from this curse.
Have we asked ourselves why we spend much money on our children and they don’t progress as compared to those children from poor homes? It might be because our money is carrying a curse with it.
Well, “I don talk ma own, na ma work”
