MY PLANTAIN: ALIVE LAST WEEK, DEAD THIS WEEK.
WHO KILLED MY PLANTAIN?
As an aspiring youth having zero mind to robbery and stealing, despite working with pen to earn monthly income, multitasking farming with business to make good living out of enduring situation, I went for 2-acre of land somewhere in the suburb of my city. Therein, I planted plantain on the two said acres since last year.
Being a journalist, time is not my friend. Instead of having leisure, I utilized every little time to attend to my plantain farm. I was born a farmer but made myself a journalist.
I planted the plantain last year with utmost care/attention as demand of such crop. I went for weeding and monitoring just last Thursday before my 3-day sojourned to Lagos. I just came last night and visited my farm this morning. What I saw amazed me. I can’t cry but my eyes was heavy.
MY PLANTAINS ARE DEAD
On getting to farm this morning, the very matured 25 pieces have been harvested by unknown person. I left my plantain alive but dead before my arrival.
I was speechless. I neither know how to yahoo nor stealing but belief so much in my pen, pure business and farming. But what happened when you gather your business profit, buy land and incorporate farming?
Haaaaa, those reaping where they never sow will meet their waterloo. Thief, why have you done this to me? Nigerians, why are you like this?
