A serving governor in Nigeria Mr. El Rufai has called for foreigners who interfere in Nigerian elections to be murdered and send back to their countries in body bags.
This is probably the most useless tv interview you will see this month and this should probably open your eyes on the emergence and rise of Boko Harm in Northern Nigeria.
Those who have been in doubt about the roles of the elites like Buhari, Atiku and El-Rufai in the emergence and rise of Boko Haram need to start a new analysis of the genesis and rise of Boko Haram.
This is how it all started. This slip of thoughts by El Rufai is a tip of the icebergs in the mentality of the Northern elites.
Go back in time when Atiku and Buhari promised to unleash terror if they lost elections. Where do you think the terror was coming from? Of course, they always meant the use of Boko Haram and the use of ever ready to slaughter Northerners. Or ask yourself, who are the fighters that are going to kill foreigners and put them in body bags? They cannot be the police and l don’t think El-Rufai had the Nigerian army in mind.
Does that make sense now? Ok, go and do more research and you will see how we have been beating about the bush about the people to really arrest in order to stop Boko Haram.
From another point of view, when l listened to El-Rufai in this short clips, l saw one of the several reasons why Africa is underdeveloped. We have basically mad men in power, people of very low mentalities.
Europe and America for sure had their histories but so does Africa. We have had our dark history. Now the world is in the light and everyone is civil but El Rufai said we should still be going through this nonsense again. Then when are we going to emerge and catch up with the rest of the world.
No, Mr. foolish El Rufai, we are tired of this regurgitation—-every country went thru this or that. We too have been here before. As recent as 1959, Nigeria had so much violence that the independence was shaky. Every election year had been hell and the military rule had been torturing.
We must emerge now and we cannot wait.
In addition, when you talk about what other countries went through, the last of them that is missing in Nigeria is the bloody revolution.
And in the words of El-Rufai, body bags are used for people like him in a bloody revolution. I support that if that will bring us at par with the rest of the world in the shortest time possible.
The problem is how we think.
In a sane world, should we even be talking about criminals in apc and pdp? Should they not all be under arrest now or serving terms in prisons? Criminals like El-rufai, who also doubled as a religious fanatic should never be seen in public. They should be in prisons and when they are free should only be controlling their bedrooms.
This man is evil and his case should be sent to the international criminal court of justice. There is nothing that should stop the arrest and prosecution of Buhar as well. These men don’t belong among other men, they are far from civil and the only thing that gives them satisfaction is the blood of others.
what a mess!
