From 1999 to date, Nigeria has been passing through a self induced nightmare. And because we are a people who love drama, we have kept multiplying this curse. From bad governance to despicable corruption, we have institutionalized primordial sentiments which have become lather to our very existence as a nation.
After the terrible military regime of Babangida which set in motion a dangerous political paradigm of violence for power, a new regional post colonial politicking was birthed! Alas, for those who don’t know, a new official terrorism for power play was born. Obasanjo was the first guinea pig that ushered in this new Nigeria Babangidan political dialectics.
It is Feudal but with a democratic coloration! It sets agenda for violence in any designated section of the prescribed regional alliance that will benefit power and when several lives have been lost, the power mafia would then release power to the section of the Country.
I doubt very much what will happen In 2019. But truth is, I don’t see how the elections will look good in that ominous year which promises only fear and doubts!
Because our people who are not in this feud-democracy arrangement have caught the flame of this new fatal Ideology Weaponized with death and salvage. Many have come to conclusion that it is how strong a section of the country Is that it can produce president of the country. So the nations common wealth is being squandered by the scramble to Amass Wealth for weapons.
So ,we’re now a nation of murderers for power and wealth! After Obasanjo, it became clear it was no longer about the nation but strictly interest. A sick YarAdua was brought in. After his demise , Dr Goodluck Jonathan was hand picked and foisted on the country.
Unfortunately for the dictators, they suffered a feudal shock because Jonathan as an intellectual refused to play the robot so they quickly aligned with general Buhari to avoid a looming revolution that was to plunge dear country into avoidable premature demise. And here are we trapped together with a rebellious general in the firm vice of a ruling rogues cabal. With the threatening balloon effectively deflected, who can hope for a true nationalist?
