The Nigerian presidency in 2020, take it or leave it, is a make believe.
Have you ever seen anywhere in the world where the country is under fire, where there is chaos, riot, murder, assassinations, protests and to cap it all, full-blown terrorism and all the president of the country can do is to prepare himself for a recorded television broadcast?
But this is the portion of Nigerians first from 2015 to 2019 and then from 2019 till date. Don’t ask me how Nigerians, supposedly some of the most intelligent people in the world, ended up with a moron in the seat of power. I cannot explain it all.
Truth is, all you read from the internet, all you hear on radio and television about the presidency in Nigeria are actually statements and press releases from various personal assistants attached to the office.
If you are reading this on this day 30th of october 2020 and you have thought that you have heard or listened to Buhari in the last of couple of days or weeks, you are a gullible person. It is about time you start thinking, critically.
Nigerian burns. Massive protests. Terrorists own part of the North. There is unrest. People are hungry. There was almost a state of anarchy. There was nobody to come out to address the press and answer questions about their stewardship in office.
The Nigerian presidency as far as l am concerned is VACANT. Whoever occupies that post does not exist in our physical realm.
Look at this situation. Even in an organisation as small as a primary school, whenever something goes wrong, the headmistress or headmaster summons the teachers and then the pupils. There is an assembly and there is an interaction between the pupils and the leadership of the school. In any organisation at all, the head comes out, stands out, takes responsibilities, ask questions, answer questions.
When was the last time “a Buhari” faced the press for 30 minutes? 5 minutes?
The last time l saw a certain “Buhari” faced the press, it did not end well. At that point, at one of the most embarrassing moments of our lives as Nigerians, we saw a “Buhari” who owned cows but didn’t know the meaning of animal husbandry.
That Buhari is either braindead or perfectly senile.
A man who has no brain, no memory and no consciousness of self and environs is who you want me to believe is in charge of the “presidency” in Abuja, Nigeria. I am sorry, you are mad.
As my readers would have observed in recent times, l have not been blogging frequently in recent months.
The reason is because l have other things that have taken my time. However, l am very active on instagram and twitter because they are microblogs and relatively easier to access and make comments/observations.
I won’t write longer on this topic.
But l want you to stop ascribing all the press releases on the internet and media house to Buhari. The Buhari in Abuja is not in charge of Nigeria. For the majority of the time, it is the press secretary and robotic special assistants that meet and fashion press releases.
The most puzzling thing is: on whose account are they dishing out all the PRESS RELEASES, comments, reactions and statements attributed to the president/presidency? You need to be worried.
APC and PDP are birds of same feathers and agents of the same criminal organisation. Therefore, you won’t hear the truth soon, not as long as these 2 criminal organisations run the show in Nigeria.
I will also like to let you know that expressing shock about the people who rule Nigeria is actually the main shock for me.
In Nigerian politics, all the politicians are criminals.
In Nigerian politics, even if you are not a criminal, you are on your way to becoming one.
The unitary system of government is an embarrassment to the intellectuality of the black race. In Nigeria, it shows lack of common sense and absence of common good.
No country in the world can prosper under a unitary system of government.
It is worse when the custodians are self-serving, moronic, selfish, wicked and demonic.
What is the way out?
Abolish the unitary system of government (and it wouldn’t matter anyway if there is a brain-dead president anywhere or not).
Let the regions or nations within Nigeria manage their resources. This will boost competitions between the different regions. The citizens or people in the regions that fail to develop will react quickly to bad governance or corruption.
Nigeria was at her best before the 1966 coups because no region wanted to be left behind.
I hear the youths of/in Nigeria are planning to revolt massively in 2023. Good idea. Let me predict that if that happens (l have my doubts about a lot of things, including the oneness of Nigeria actually) the youths would go into the cycle of idiocy, corruption and they would massively contribute to the underdevelopment of Nigeria.
The unitary system of government will turn good men and women to demons and morons. This has been the case since the 1966 coups. Unless the system is changed or reverted, all other attempts are cosmetics and dead on arrival.
For now, let us focus on why Nigeria has an invincible presidency. The unitary system of government is loaded with deceits, lies, corruption and a compelling tendency to turn willing men and women to demons and monsters. Ask Femi Adesina. Ask Garba. Ask Tolu, and ask Onochie.
