There have been political chaoses in the administration of the no-nonsense general President Buhari than we ever experienced in the administration of the ‘none politically willed’ Graduate Jonathan. At least, Nigerians were sure of a seating president during the ‘none politically willed’ Graduate Jonathan’s reign than a ‘no-nonsense general’ President in absentia we have today in Buhari. And the PDP is not even helping matters at all!!
Not even the rule of law and obedience to the due process has been really seen exhibited by those in the political echelon of Buhari’s administration, and even the Buhari is not excluded. It is true that most of us fought for democracy, but the happenings in Nigeria today is revealing that rarely are we all democrats. How can Buhari boast as a democrat whereas he is finding it difficult to write a (common) letter to the confusionists-in-chief in the National Houses directing that the seating-duck mere commissioner should act as the Acting President in his absence?
The buffoons in the persons like the Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami has always exhibited the rarest exhibition of goons in the defence of (his job) the ‘No-Nonsense General President to the detriment of over One Hundred and Fifty Million Nigerians. Even, the Graduate Legislators allowed the insensible Aisha Buhari to be acting nonsense around all the corners of power forgetting that the self-acclaimed office of the First Lady is no office in the Nigeria’s history as far as the 1999 Constitution upholds, which she is even planning to truncate. Aisha is power drunken and needs exorcism from the spirit of power intoxication!
It is sheer sabotage to the country called Nigeria and Nigerians to see those who claim to be Graduates acting so foolishly because of their self-aggrandizement in a democracy. This has been the contention by yours truly that not even the much touted democracy world over can save any country, but good governance. This is because democracy, like the Nigeria’s example harbours nepotism, oligarchy, anarchy, Marxism etc. in this democracy.
There has not been transparency, at all, in a democracy that saw to the untimely deaths of many Nigerians today. No one is even talking about those who were incarcerated in several occasions for the attainment of this democracy. Not even a day of honour could be mapped out in obeisance for their efforts. This could be why hardly many so called Nigerians wouldn’t want to die for Nigeria but would want to die for their ethnicity. And dichotomy has been the bane of this country which is ram shackling following the hand of Buhari and APC on the wall of Aso Rock, a den of corruption.
What this ‘No-Nonsense General’ President Buhari’s administration has exhibited so far should teach Nigerians a lesson of always looking for the content and not the container. Many of our heroes in the past rarely had one or two academic certificates, but they exhibited rare governance many of those who wear GRADUATE as a garb in this country today can exhibit.
Nigeria can only be good when we are able to boast of many educated men than many certificate men. Many of us cannot even defend our certificates.
