Ode to the Dancing Traffic Cop

Written by 


who rise each day to do a honest day’s job

who regardless of your station in life, bring excellence to your work

who pirouettes with such grace you keep Nigeria moving…and smiling

who shine so brilliantly, you defy the darkness of mediocrity around you

who blaze a trail of superiority that only the courageous dare follow


For not using your uniform to prey on those you were sworn to protect

For not moonlighting somewhere else while collecting salary as a traffic officer

For not allowing our roadways to degenerate into tar jungles on which the big slap around the small

For not lending your uniform to robbers and killers

For not giving up on the dream of a progressive, forward-moving Nigeria
