With much emphasis on basic tenets oof democracy which are rule of law, true federalism and constitutionalism, as at date this is in clear exact opposite of what President Muhammodu Buhari promised Nigerians via the ‘Change Mantra’, most of the promise now jettisoned.
The administration berthed on a high euphoria of wanton of endless assurances of good governance, true federalism, purposeful leadership and qualitative delivery of dividends of democracy predicated on genuine laws and standard practice, while harping on the war against corruption as its model for rebuilding the ailing Nigerian nation.
But to our greatest dismay and disappointments they are yet to heat up the struggle, while rigmaroling on the pedestal of deceits and unconscious failures.
The Adminstration loss touch with reality, when as at date countless lies have been dispensed into the psyche of Nigerians, where all that matters to the people is just survival from the depression and anxiety of a failed state.
The spate of insecurity has risen sparodically beyond imagination, ranging from premeditated incursion Boko Haram, Fulani Herdsmen, Ethnic groups divisions and hopelessness has now become the indicator.
The corruption war is now fighting the dead horse itself… The dearth of sound leadership.
In the last two years things has grown from bad to worse, food security is at the lowest ebb, education is in comatose, the culture of unemployment is now the new order, power is retrogressive, oil subsidy brought untold hardship, economy is struggling to get out of recession, hence reducing the country into a veritable torture chamber, where life is nasty, brutish and short.
On rule of Law it is all noise and no action, El’-Zakzakky, Nnamdi Kalu, Dasuki are all evidence of injustice and anarchy, the unwarranted embarrassment on the gross ineptitude onerous of the Buhari led government shows it it lacks the will power of managing a democratic state, as at date the government commits countless obstruction of justice by grossly violating court orders at will, while this is most disastrous and has a lot of negative consequences for our country.
To this end, I strongly advise let the Ag. President Prof. Yemi Oshinbajo rise up to the challenge of retooling the whole system and reshuffling the entire Ministers and Government agencies and parastatals, by putting square pegs in a right posts, while assuring through right visionary approach on good governance and ensuring to revisit and review the Confab report implementation via the conduct of a free and fair referendum and plebiscite accordingly.
Passionately speaking as a Nigerian, I am indeed proud and ever hopeful of a greater future. Hence, the need for the youths of this great country to rise up to the challenge of liberating and developing the Nigerian nation. Precipitating my intention if given the chance to serve as President of Nigeria come 2019..#IBelieve.
