God created us with a lot of “rainbowlike” promises. But he never said we shall have rainbows every minute of our lives. Trials will surely come, but He promised to be with us in the storm and would not abandon us.
Translate this into the political chess game of our present political system, it means that politicians shall lose some and win some. But no matter where the pendulum swings, they should remain loyal to their political parties.
It would also mean that if they forebear and persevere, they shall someday overcome. The waiting time may be long, but they need courage and patience to see the rainbows promised by God.
At times God permits some losses in our lives to protect us for the best to come. Our ways are not the ways of God. When our people win elections they go for thanksgiving. When they lose, they forget the churchgate. It shouldn’t be so.
Unfortunately our politicians are yet to come to terms with who God is. Some won elections but died before inauguration. Can’t they ask why to learn?
At times God might refuse us certain things either because we may not be able to manage the outcome if given that thing. He may simply be preserving us against deadly storms for the days of our rainbows to come
It is on this premise I say that anybody that truly loves a political party, driven by patriotism, and have integrity, will not work against the political parties that made them Governors, Legislators and political appointees no matter the disappointing circumstances.
Life in its entirety does not offer us what we think we truly deserve. But like Chester Karrass said, we could at some point, have opportunities to negotiate what would give us much joy and fulfillment.
If Nigeria must progress, we must change our paradigms of for better for stay, for worse for zap the party with rockets. May God give us true and God fearing leaders.
For political parties, may God grant them the courage to emplace internal democracy that is just and fair to party members.
Grace and peace!!!
