Is loyalty purely a function of gain?

Welcome to your talk show Impact Formula
Segment – Analysis of our Society’s Diaries (ASD)-(ANALYST’s OPINION)
Topic – Is loyalty purely a function of gain?

Key notes: Permit me to start with this quote…”Some people will only “Love You” as much as they can use you. Their loyalty ends where the benefits stops”. I am sure many of us have experienced this. You do someone a favor and they are so pleased with you. Once you stop the favor, they stop being at your beck and call. Can you say surely that they were loyal to you just because of what they were gaining? If that is true, the question now is this….Is loyalty purely a function of gain?

I think it is primarily a function of the present society we have evolved (or devolved?) into. Even the British values of honour, loyalty, Valour has been watered down. How much more our own values as a nation, and as individual tribes. Heck! Our languages sef are prophesied to ge extinct at this pace by 2050 if we don’t take reversal steps.

That is by the way.

Material wealth has been esteemed much more than values now. The case of the infamous kidnapper Evans points to that. Even me have been guilty of ushering ‘big’ men to the front seats. How many times have we visited the bank and the security guard tells us “oga your boy is loyal o, anything for the boys?”.

Loyalty previously used to be tied to bloodlines, culture and religion. So a man is fiercely loyal to his family, his fellow tribal people (when he is in a strange land o) and maybe his religion. Now, loyalty is based majorly on money, and sometimes, one good turn deserves another, no be so?

Gain is part of loyalty, but loyalty shouldn’t be solely a function of gain. I think friendship makes one more truly loyal than financial gain. Oga Iyke, you never gimme that one million wey I dey expect o, but you know I gat your back. Abi no be so?



Big No, No need deliberate on this… its pure and simple in my own opinion.

Yes i’ve seen people stop being loyal when there’s nothing more to gain or when you stopped being useful for a particular purpose, but its so wrong. Well, I believe loyalty is a code.

I don’t have to think twice for the ones i’m loyal to and at the same time we can’t be loyal to everyone just because its our code.

For me just as Respect is earned, Loyalty is too.

Is loyalty purely a function of gain?

“Some people will only “Love You” as much as they can use you. Their loyalty ends where the benefits stops”. I really do not know who owns this quote but i’m very positive that the author’s life experience must have inspired this quote. I like that the author of this quite used “some people”.

However this TOPIC (Is loyalty purely a function of gain?) is not focused on LOVE.

Now i think that the answer to this question is all pointing to a YES. If we can remove the word LOYAL for a second and ponder over this example.

You want a favor from someone; you keep calling the person and the person eventually grants you the favor. Once that favor is granted, chances are that you will not call that person again.

You can liken this example a lot to loyalty in our world today. I think its just the way the human mind is designed(i think). We are tuned to what supplies our needs and once the supply of our needs shifts from A to B, we are likely to channel our energy on B without necessarily trying to discredit A.

This might not apply to all situations of life as much as it will not apply to everyone…especially when it comes to family ties and friendship. But i strongly subscribe to the fact that you cannot completely separate loyalty from gain.

We really are all learners and i appreciate YOU my ANALYST’s for sharing your opinion. I look forward to more topics and your contributions. Thank you so much as we continue the conversation on this thread. Thank you for viewing Guess Iyke’s (ASD). You can join also our team of ANALYST’s.
