As Nigeria Decides,Is The Ruling Party Running Scared?
The Department of state service once again proved yesterday its
partisanship and that's a shame. It is a shame that a body whose job is to
protect and defend the Federal Republic of Nigeria and Nigerians has now
become a tool in the hands of the presidency and the ruling party. This is
not the first time the DSS has raised suspicions about its partisanship.
Recall during the Osun Elections, when it accused the opposition of
bribery, and when the APC asked Marilyn and her troops to name names, they
recoiled into their shells. They had no evidence, yet were making
unnecessary accusations. That reeked of PDP.
Yesterday it accused the APC yet again of planning to hack voter's
registration data base of the independent national electoral commission
INEC. Their claim was based on what it allegedly recovered from the APC
data center in Lagos in November of last year. Yes, November last year.
What a wonder. Good timing too. Common, some things or should I say lies
are worth giving serious thoughts before they are spit out,especially
without evidence. This is laughable and embarrassing to the world of
intelligence. One can tell straightaway that this is the hand of Esau and
the voice of Jacob. This is the same DSS that have come up short of
curbing domestic threats (one of its major responsibilities) we are faced
with on a daily basis in this country. One is wont to wonder how the DSS's
job description changed overnight. This latest play from the Presidency
(of course it's not the DSS at work) has just confirmed that the ruling
party is really running scared of General Buhari and the opposition come
Their body language, their utterances, their pettiness et al just confirms
their fear, or how else can one explain Professor Jerry Gana's recent
epistle when nobody asked him for same? You know, while growing up my
parents knew straight up I was hiding something or lying when I start to
answer questions I was not asked. Prof just reminded me of those years.
Some weeks ago 21billion Naira was raised for the PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN of
President Goodluck Jonathan to the amazement of Nigerians. Some Nigerians
were almost brought to tears when they saw their state governors donate
unbelievable sums of money while their salaries were not paid. Me, I
wondered what professor Jerry Gana does that will allow him comfortably
donate 5Billion Naira to the same campaign. Odikwaegu o…Well Prof some
days ago decided to add salt to Injury by telling us to our faces how dumb
we are. He told us to our faces that not all of the 21billion Naira that
was realized was for the president's campaign. He said some of the money
would go into completing the PDP national headquarters. Hmm, these guys
must really see us as dumbos! This was actually an eye opener. So, the PDP
has been running Nigeria from an uncompleted building for the past 15
years? What sort of lots did we hand over our country to for the past 15
years- A ruling party that cannot even fix its own building? Boy were we
expecting a lot when we asked them to provide us with steady power supply,
standardized heath care facilities, good roads, tackle corruption and
unemployment et al when they cannot even complete their party headquarters
after 15years in power! How do they now expect us to put our destiny in
their hands for another 4 years? Professor Jerry Gana should learn not to
run his mouth when no one asks him jack. It just confirms how jittery his
party is. That got me in trouble so many times as a child!
I can remember in 2011 when almost everybody, every organization and all
whatnot endorsed the candidacy of the incumbent President. From MEND to
BEND; almost everybody was sold the ''I had no shoes'' dummy and boy did
they swallow it hook, line and sinker. Recently the movement for the
emancipation of the Niger Delta MEND endorsed the candidacy of Muhammed
Buhari and all hell was let loose. The PDP is now demanding to know the
relationship between MEND and the APC. You need to read another low from
them, in the name of a press conference. That was not only self-serving,
it was sort of dumb and desperate. Nobody, in 2011, asked the PDP to
explain its connection with MEND in 2011; why should anybody offer any
kind of explanation? What if MEND had endorsed GEJ,what would the PDP have
said? If the PDPD insists, I think MEND gave the perfect answer. This
group and so many other Nigerians have realized that they were sold a
dummy, and have realized same, hence their decision to withdraw their
support for the sitting president. I do not see any lie in any of their
reasons for wanting to put their support behind GMB. Did MEND lie about
this president's stance on corruption? Did MEND lie about the Niger Delta
not being any better?
The Buhari certificate brouhaha is the pettiest of them all. General
Muhammed Buhari has contested election 3 times, in 2003, 2007 and 2011
with sworn affidavit in place of his educational education and nobody has
raised any dust about it all these while. The General's reason for using a
sworn affidavit has always been that originals of his certificates were
vandalized after the time he was removed as head of state and that the
only copies available at the moment are those with the military board. I
wonder why the PDP has all of a sudden decided to make noise over GMB's
certificate. Good thing Military officials have finally accepted that they
indeed do have the man's credentials.
You see, the Man was not lying after all. You see, the man was not lying
when he said no one can accuse him of lying as well as being corrupt.
These guys have run out of ideas of how to run GMB down and their
desperation have made them start of petty.
Listen to me,Nigeria today, needs men who can be trusted. Nigeria needs
Men who can keep their words. We need Men who will see stealing as
corruption and vice versa. We need Men who have the interest of the people
at heart. We need Men with great ideas who can be trusted with executing
same with so much enthusiasm and zeal. GMB I maintain is our Hercules,
never mind the cheap slur the PDP and its cohort throws.
Finally, imagine the PDP being the opposition party after 16 years at the
helm with nothing to show. I see them buckling up and I see a very healthy
future for our democracy. I see the APC wanting to over achieve and the
PDP trying to show us how they have changed and how they can do better. I
see a win-win situation for you and me. It actually could be in the best
interest of the PDP (they need time to re-strategize) and Nigeria if they
lose the forthcoming presidential election.
It is, as a matter of urgency, time to embrace change, Nigeria! General
Muhammad Buhari represents change.
