I have seen and read arguments about why Buhari should resign or “not resign”.
My opinion is the same even before he went away for this length of time. African rulers including dictators and democratic “rulers” have a lesson to learn.
They must learn how to groom successors. The mentality of holding on to power “at whatever cost” is stupid and careless.
Nigeria has a vice president who could have been smoothly sworn in as the president instead of the puppet that he had since become, a complete figurine/figure head.
By holding on to power “at all cost” in this case is several millions of naira everyday in a country where some citizens are still picking from the dustbin to find their daily bread, Mr. Buhari is fulfilling the old “craze” for absolute power.
For over 100 days Nigeria is running on auto-pilot. The intrigues are the same, perpetrated by the same cabal. We learnt nothing from the Umaru Yar Adua saga. One would think that such madness will not happen twice within such a short period of timeline.
It was Buhari and his cohorts then in the opposition who shouted to heavens that Yar ADUA should be impeached. He was not impeached. The man died.
100 days of spending tax payers money outside of the country ranks amongst the cruelst and most thoughtless form of corruption/looting I have seen in modern Nigerian history.
I know of Diezani and her own is on a league of its own.
To lie to the people, to deceive them and to spend their money at a hospital abroad is not far ranked. Stealing is stealing and looting is looting.
In several posts, l have questioned the budgetary allocation to the hospital called the State House Clinic in Abuja. What is the purpose of that clinic? What is the purpose of the several billions that have been allocated to it over the years? Can we close down the State house Clinic in Abuja to avoid this double spending. They all go abroad, why fund a state house clinic?
If you don’t see anything wrong in the absence of Buhari and him still holding on to power or the cabal doing that for him, then l am sorry YOUR MUMU NEVER DO. You can never have sense.
