I didn’t vote this govt in for 2 major reasons:
1. I couldn’t in all good conscience vote for anyone who had be actively involved in running state affairs over the last 2 decades and
2. I was desirous of someone young, vibrant and in tune with current world events and Nigeria’s place in all of it.
When in our typical knee jerk reaction to national issues combined with our desperation to remove a leadership that was no less incompetent he emerged winner; I was willing to suspend my disbelief in spite of my reservations.
In the face of growing evidence, a tiny part of me still gave the benefit of doubt, mindful that we live in the age of disinformation, focusing my attention mainly on the trickle of reports of his “great strides in infrastructure & poverty alleviation”, believing that when the dust settles posterity will be kind to this President and his administration.
But THIS? Nah…
Last night, every illusion I may have had has been shattered. I am forced to re-examine everything I thought I knew.
I am bereft and totally horrified at the magnitude of what Nigeria is up against. And by that I dont mean 1 man or 1 administration but a ruling class that will do anything; including devour their young while the world watches to maintain the filthy status quo.
Ore, ise ya! Ona kan o woja.
Rest. Recalibrate. Restrategize. Renew.
We’ve been shown the extent of their might; they have no inkling as to the full array of the superpowers of the people when they speak with one voice. A pade niwaju.
We. Will. Not. Forget.
