Record shows that prior to the eviction of Lucifer from heaven, despite being the leading angel before he committed the sin of rebellion and disobedience; he blamed it on the creation of man rather than his insubordination and utter disregard for God. It follows therefore that shelving responsibilities for our actions, in-actions, omissions, and inadvertent oversights, is not just a human trait. In fact, it is a habit inherited from the maligned recalcitrant devil. Since that episode, it has been customary for the human race to find someone, something, or anything else to blame for their irresponsibility and misgivings. They go as far as blaming the one whom this horrible habit originated from – the devil.

Consequently, it is not difficult to understand why conventionally, we always blame the devil for our blunders. It is almost incredible to see anyone own up to his or her faults. If something goes wrong, then it has to be the circumstances through which it played out, the other party involved, time factor, the dynamism of the unforeseen, or the master of deception itself even if it is due to our recklessness, negligence, indecision, ill-timing, bad judgment, and impatience.

If we trace our steps back to the human eviction from paradise too, we will recall that the man blamed the woman whom God had given her; by extension blaming God for his disobedience, and the woman in turn blamed the serpent. A careful analysis of that story of the first denial and blame game by human shows that no one owned up to their actions despite the man haven been warned exclusively to desist from consuming only of the fruit of wisdom. Apparently, the man could have refused the offer of his helper to eat of the fruit, even if the woman had eaten of it. However, he chose to have a taste wilfully as there was no account of it forcefully shoved down his throat by her just to turn around to blame her and deny taking the responsibility for the act.

Today is not a day for elaborate articulation of words. I have chosen to be direct, precise, and palpable. I admonish each one of us to desist from the blame game, to be responsible for our actions, to embrace the consequences heartily. It is the hallmark of any man to own up to his actions and dance to the rhythms of the melody from our omissions. Let us learn to take the fall for whatsoever comes out of our actions or in-actions. After all, many a time, we are eager to take the glory from our acts why not take the blame for them as well rather than deny its responsibilities.

I am not asking you to be superman and be culpable for the faults of others, far from it! All I am saying is when that relationship fails, when that job is poorly executed, when that decision you took goes awfully wrong, when that wall comes crashing down and you are at the centre of it, when you get pregnant, or impregnate that woman be accountable.  Be blameworthy not finding someone else to bear the brunt when that scuffle starts, when you are involved in that accident, when you fail that test or exam, when you at the centre for that mishap, and you are responsible for it.
