Deziani Alison-Madueke: The Madness Of A Minister By Charles Ofoji
For the avoidance of doubt, a minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria is a public servant. By and large, the job of a minister, as a servant, is to serve his master (the Nigerian people). And in the prosecution of his duty of service, he must not act in any way that will jeopardize the well-being or interest of his overlord. Neither is he expected to challenge the status quo of master-servant relationship.
If a servant starts to live above the master or those he is serving, then that servant must have gone mad. When such happens, surely the days of the servant are numbered.
More than once in my dating life I’ve been told by lovers that they liked being with me, being seen with me because I made them look good.
I’m now married to a man who does not see me as an accessory.

My ribs hurt on the left-hand side, the glands in my throat are swollen and my body aches. I’m falling ill as I recover from surgery.
Oya lemsip and day nurse where are you?
On the plus side, I’m grateful that I have my husband back for his business trip and I’ve had a lot of family love this week.
I got lost today. Transported to a bright, light, soft and warm place where daydreams and reality blended. My heart is calm and happy after just 24 hours at home.
But I was literally lifting way more than I could handle
Guilt at times becomes an everyday feeling. Guilt for the things you can’t do but feel you should be doing, obsessing that you’re letting people down. I often give myself impossible deadlines just to please. I often crash back down to earth quickly. I’m lucky to be surrounded by people who have my best interest at heart who make me slow down, re-evaluate and accept reality.
Recovery from surgery has been an interesting, enforced period of self discovery. It has also been very much needed. I need to stop feeling guilty about the things I physically or mentally cannot do while I heal. There’s no one to please but my body.
