PROCRASTINATION IS A GREAT THEFT OF TIME
My English teacher in secondary school would tell us this saying everytime he stood to speak at the assembly. Then, we thought that it was a monotonous saying that didn’t mean much.
In the voyage of time, I have come to decipher it’s contextual meaning. I can apply it to what we did during Chemistry lessons when the chemistry teacher insisted that we had to write the exams.
I put my pen to paper, wrote my name, date, class and subject. I then walked upto the teacher and asked that I rush out to the urinal. She allowed me. I stayed out for some minutes as the rest of the students were busy in the exam room.
Back again, I sat on my locker, read the questions and scratched my head. What the hell did the teacher want me to write about saponification, alkaline earth metals, etc ?
Certainly, I couldn’t attempt the questions but I had to be seen to be busy writing. I had to write for the whole period of the test while what I actually did was to rewrite the questions.
For 2hrs, I was busy doing nothing. Now, this is where the meaning of the saying lies. To be seen to be doing something to cover a given duration of time, while in reality, there’s nothing taking place.
Our KNUT brethren has perfected this art of procrastination. They are busy meeting every other personality in the government and taking photos to be splashed on teachers whatsapp walls as an evidence of doing something to ameliorate the Union problems.
The other time, it was a parliamentary committee meeting that was the ice breaker. Yesterday, it was Sossion meeting Prof. Magoha. Today, we can’t tell what it’ll gonna be.
KNUT is busy looking for way out while what they are supposed to do is simple. Very simple. Ask Sossion to resign. Period !
There is a jackpot in Sossion’s resignation. Revival of KNUT
