The tragedy of Rashidi Yekini should be a lesson for us all, when the going is good, think and do things that will last. Women, Money, controversy are potential landmines. Those who have ears let them hear.

Too late for crocodile tears! Everyone who cared to know was aware that the late Mr. Rashidi Yekini was neglected by the Nigerian community to his own peril. He was a personification of delusion in a better Nigeria. He was abandoned and excommunicated like an outcast! No other country in the world would have treated a former national football star that way. The condolences from Nigeria's president, Kwara State Governor, his team mates, etc are in my opinion unwarranted. It is like crying over a spilt milk.
Where and when was the love shown to him while in self imposed solitary confinement in an old store building? If there is heaven, may the case of Rashidi Yekini be like the biblical Lazarus who found God's favour. May his soul rest in peace. May God Almighty provide means of survival to the family he left on earth, amen. God save Nigeria.
