What were Nigerians thinking when they elected Muhammadu Buhari as President? Perhaps we saw in the dictator a man of competence and truth. Perhaps, we assumed he would do a better job. Many of us including this writer, believed Buhari with his experience, humility, and “integrity” would turn Nigeria around for the better. So, many of us came together to sell Buhari to the Nigerian people. Nigerians overwhelmingly elected him president.
President Buhari deserves a second term because the Nigerian presidency is a job for the unintelligent, the unprepared, the spectator, the blind, the deaf, and the dumb. Visionary candidates with moral probity, intellectual capacity, acumen, capability, courage, audacity, strength, will, and resolve are not wanted. Rather, Nigerians prefer the old, incoherent, incompetent, person without a vision.
Buhari’s second term is necessary to guarantee Nigerians unrivaled nepotism, hunger, abject poverty, insecurity, fear, hope against hope, greed, and viciousness. Ruined cities and towns will compete for a place in the refuse dunghill. We must reward Buhari with second term so that Nigerians will continue to be imprisoned by fear, and preoccupied with survival.
To make Nigeria thrive in exponential mass poverty, squalor, suffering, oppression, selective justice and double standard, to resurrect Decree 4 on freedom of speech and freedom of the press, let’s give Buhari second term.
Buhari will manage our nation in his second term better than first term. How? Listen to him:
Kadaria: What are your thoughts on restructuring with regards to education?
Buhari: I’m expecting the press to investigate the corruption in the local government.
Kadaria: Why should Nigerian people vote for you again?
Buhari: I’ve said it before that if my party nominates me, I will contest.
Kadaria: The soldiers are protesting poor treatment and are ill equipped. What are your thiughts?
Buhari: I get situation report from the military. The military should investigate the demonstrations because they are not supposed to demonstrate.
Kadaria: Boko Haram targeting the military and killing soldiers. Are you worried about that?
Buhari: They choose the time to attack. We have resource limitations. Boko Haram get help from external forces.
Kadaria: What’s the solution to the conflict between farmers and herdsmen?
Buhari: We studied grazing routes from the first republic. Benue Governor shouldn’t ban grazing but provide routes for grazing.
President Buhari’s second term epitaph will be written as when Nigeria was thrown into a national funeral which no one attends. Let’s give him a second term. He deserves it!
