Sins Of PDP, The Sinners And The Priest

By Sesani Fedayo

If you want to deceive a gullible leader just tell him that his failure to deliver is as a result of the ineffectiveness and incompetence of his predecessors.

It is the height of insensitivity to see individuals who camouflage as statesmen to be blasting stale stories into our ears over and over again. According to Niccolo Machiavelli, "Politics have no relation to morals", if not, they should not have been found anywhere near our politicosphere. Earlier, we had corrected them in our article tagged "16 YEARS OF PDP MESS: ANOTHER FILMSY RANTING FROM HALLUCINATIONS" But these individuals seem bent on covering their ineptitude and failures with this "blame anthem."

Some simple questions begging for answers are as follows; who are the sinners? and where are the SINNERS? Since they have appointed themselves as Priests for political atonements, they should also deem it fit to answer the questions raised above.

Going by their assertions, the SINNERS are Olusegun Obasanjo, Atiku Abubakar, Nasir El-Rufai, Rotimi Amaechi, Aminu Tambuwal, Aminu Masari, Olagunsoye Oyinlola, George Akume, Segun Oni, Patricia Etteh, Chris Ngige, Audu Ogbeh, Bukola Saraki, Ahmed Abdulfatai, Samuel Ortom, Aliyu Wammako, Rabiu Kwankwaso, Muritala Nyako, Barnabas Gemade, Farouk Lawan, Kawu Baraje, in fact the list is endless.

The above named are formidable Shepherds and Bishops in same congregation with the self acclaimed political saints. They are makers of APC and without them, the APC would still be a pipe dream political party.

Why should Nigerians be paying for sins of these people after they have become political saints by moving to APC.

It will be too late for history to forget how TINUBU postrated before OYINLOLA and promised him Ministerial appointment, all in the quest of the latter to support AREGBESOLA's bid for re-election as governor of Osun State in 2014. Today, Aregbesola is a living testimony of mis-governace, and according to Remi Oyeyemi, "the man is messing up Osun State to the best of his ability".

History will never delete records of trips that TINUBU made to Obasanjo Hilltop, in Abeokuta to ask for advice, support and blessings of Ebora Owu in the enthronement of BUHARI as APC flag bearer and later President of our nation. Were Tinubu and his co-travellers in APC hallucinating or day dreaming when they were welcoming and conducting atonement for these people in their fold? Have they forgotten how they turned APC to Aggrieved Politicians Congress? Were they blinded when same people were footing APC bills?

Tinubu and his acolytes should save us from all these lamentations and put on their thinking caps for the governed to smile. They should know by now that; not all Nigerians are gullible and not all Nigerians are under the spell of their brooms. What the innocent public are concerned about is how to stop spending their productive time in filling stations with their cars and generating plants. They want their purchasing powers that have been decimated by the astronomical prices of essential commodities to jack back to life. They want solutions to their sufferings compounded by 10months of wrong policies and blame games. In the world of blame gaming, nobody wins prizes, enough is enough.

Tinubu should advise his enthroned king to decimate his 4 aides on media and propaganda when no single adviser for economy has been appointed. He should direct his energy to save our slim foreign reserves by telling Buhari to stop globe-trotting. What exactly should we expect when a Minister of Petroleum is always on the sky. Buhari has made 25 trips in 10months spending our scarce dollars while the world President, Barrack Obama has made just 45trips in 7years. Also, Tinubu should advise his party on how CBN policies can stop undermining our earnings from Customs Service, about N230bn was just recorded as shortfall. They should stop playing politics and start governance.

If it was under Jonathan that Nigerians are queueing to buy fuel at N300 per litre when the oil price is $40 per barrel, APC and so called Statesmen would have produced dictionary of reasons Nigeria is under bad leadership. Let us remind them this, that you can get an 'A' in Election Calculus does not mean you will know how to govern a city.

We will conclude with Proverbs 24:21-22 "My SON, fear thou the LORD and the king: and MEDDLE not with them that are given to CHANGE. For their CALAMITY shall rise SUDDENLY..."(KJV)

Nigerians have meddled with change agents but God will have mercy on us and deliver us speedily.
