The story is told of an old Nigerian man, Pa Kunle, who, despite the fact that he had been living in United Kingdom of Great Britain for decades, kept referring to ‘Lagos’ as home. In his preferred hang-out bar, ‘The Dorchester’ a place for the selected few (rich and famous) he would assure his friends that he was preparing to go ‘home’, that this was in fact his last year in England.
The Oldman was not in the system, never bothered to vote; he did not know who his local MP was nor did he cared to know. His only contact with the council was when poll taxes and rates bills are paid, and when aspiring councilors came knocking on his door in search of votes, he showed them away with the exclamation: ‘Why are you disturbing me? I’m not from this country; am going back home soon!’
