Monday Lines with Dr. Lasisi Olagunju dated August 10, 2020 is a biting satire from Olagunju’s arsenal of wisdom. To start with, columnists and editors make wonderful and excellent leaders as well as heads of government.

Nigeria’s quagmire could be solved by the finest of them all. Dr. Lasisi Olagunju is a genius, one of Nigeria’s greatest writers, bringing hope where none exists, evidenced by his gripping and inspiring articles, great, awesome and simply stupendous.
I suggested to a friend that Nigeria’s jigsaw could be surmounted by some of our finest editors and columnists. He said to me, “but Dr. Reuben Abati used to be one of them. How did he fare when he found himself in the corridors of power?” My response was that Dr. Abati was in the corridor of power engaged as a paid agent to window-dress his principal, and he did just that.

Ben Guriano of The Washington Post described them in 2018 as ‘taboo enforcers.’ These are trolls seeking to upend truth and subvert facts about the life and times of the dead. ‘Do not speak ill of the dead’ came originally from a Spartan philosopher, then it was latinated by the Romans to read De mortuis nihil nisi bonum – and got spread around the world like Chinese viruses. The black man, as in all cases, contracted the no-no and turned it into a religion, got drunk with it and won’t mind killing for it…
