I am tempted to draw a parallel between our dear president and the
biblical Moses, commissioned by God to lead the Jews out of Egypt,
into the promised land, Isreal. But it would be an exercise in
60 days in, all we see is the authoritarian rule of a repentant
coupist cum dictator, masquerading in the hired garb of a democrat,
circumventing the sanctity of the constitution with veiled decrees and
The Majority of Nigerians voted change, and many more supported that change;
exquisitely package by the refined expertise of David Axelrod and his
band. But that change, personified in president Buhari, 60 days in,
has proven to be: visionless,
directionless, archaic, vindictive, sectional, subjective, divisive,
selective, distructive and
It is disheartening and disconcerting to see all this attributes
characterize the embryonic administration of a man who ran for
president three times, before he "won" the
fourth. One begins to imagine if it was president Buhari that Ran for
president or "they" ran for president, through an able proxy in
Juxtapose this with the consistent
reference by president Buhari to his effete mental capacity occasioned
by age; you will begin to see that "they" used the
popularity of our dear president among the Northern proletarians to
seize power by the ballot.
60 days in, Nigerians have come to realize that the "honesty and
anti-corruption" credentials are not sufficient leadership qualities
required to propel a nation
A leader should be purposeful, a visionary, a fence mender,
de-tribalize, open-minded, equitable, and so many other attributes
has been highlighted by great leaders God has gifted humanity with.
60 days in, we have seen what will go into history as the largest
diplomatic delegation ever of court clowns and jesters.
We have seen endless gaffes by our dear president, that has earned him
numerous monikers, chief of which is: Baba Go Slow.
We have seen the free fall of the Naira rivalling the force of gravity.
We have received a bespoke ridicle from the international community,
owing to the
shameful and abysmal showing of our president while he was in the US.
Four years after, with the status quo subsisting, i strongly believe
that those political idealists, who will hold unto the mantra of
change, will be stoned by the
majority of Nigerians.
Our dear president has been credited with being honest and honourable.
And he has shown flashes of these trait on several
occasions; particularly, in reference to his greatly limited mental
capacity to function
optimally as president. He should be encouraged to take it one step

Mr President Sir, we already know you are honest, honourable, modest,
and not corrupt. But, Policy direction, the economy, social justice
and inclusive government, are not your strong points. There is nothing
remaining for you to achieve in the way of lagacy, i enjoin you, as
would millions of well meaning and objective Nigerians would. Do
the needful: come home! Daura is calling.
