THE POLITICS OF PLEONEXIAI AND APATE' ; THE "MIDAS' TOUCH" - By Prince Aniekan Asuquo.

THE POLITICS OF PLEONEXIAI AND APATE' ; THE "MIDAS' TOUCH" - By Prince Aniekan Asuquo.

King Midas, an infamous Greek king known for his abilities to turn things to gold. He is honoured and rumoured as the most greedy king of the Greek-Roman dynasty.

Just like King Solomon of the Bible, King Midas was honoured with a wish-come-through opportunity and he wished that all he touches turns to gold.

The kind of politics most popular in this dispensation is that of greed, deceitfulness, lies and manipulations. Elective office holders write and promote captivating manifestoes, juicy promises and unrealistic expectations in a bit to enjoy the "Midas touch" knowing fully well the gold that awaits them.
After winning the heart of the stakeholders and emerging, they enjoy the gift of manipulation through constitutional power and immunity and glorify their intelligence and strong aura, abandoning the masses to their fate.
King Midas enjoyed his gift but for a while as everything he touches turns to gold including his foods and water which caused him to almost starve to death and unfortunately, his greatest possession, his daughter became a golden artefact courtesy of his touch.
His gift became a curse and wisdom, foolishness.
Our leaders must understand that they are there for the people and not to massage their ego and satisfy their greed. They should do their best and when their best isn't enough, they should break the barrier and set new benchmarks.
To the present and next generation, don't learn the politics of greed, deceit and manipulations in order to enjoy the gift of Midas' touch which will subsequently become foolishness.
An era is coming when Accountability will not only be on your campaign flier, but will be the standard for which quality leadership will be measured!
I believe in the #New Era.
