My Dear Southern Kaduna people, before you make any decision, remember the massacred, the hatred and the insults!
It is no longer news that political calculations and consultations are ongoing across Kaduna state, it is also no longer news that we are been seen as deciders on who becomes the next governor of the state come May 2019.
I need not to remind us of what has happened within the past two (2) political years in the state, ranging from the killings, the nepotisms, the hatred and bigotry, the illegal arrest and detentions etc.
Haven said these, I want to quickly highlight some few reason why we must guard against endorsing or supporting the candidacy of the bigot in command under whose nose the above mentioned ills took place without any remorse from him.
My people, are we going to forget so soon how we were insulted in our time of mourning and grief and still support?
A man who called our mothers “immoral” for daring him and for protesting half naked before him?
A man who called our own SOKAPU a group of bigots and therefore not worthy of any parley with him?
A man who violated our Senator’s privacy, causing fear and panic in his home? A man who paid terrorists compensation instead of prosecution?
A man who shuts down our major tertiary institutions for no justifiable reasons for months and still counting?
A man who sent many of our comrades to jail giving them the titles ‘ex-convicts’ for daring his evil activities?
A man who took breads away from the tables of some of our comrades?
A man who relegated us to the background in terms of political appointments, giving juicy positions to his friends and families and giving us useless appointments?
A man who desecrated our traditional institutions by invading our palaces, arresting and detaining our chiefs?
My people, we must take heed in the popular saying ‘not all that glitters is gold’.
We must be careful of Greek gifts from such a man who suddenly wants to dialogue, parley with us and even ready to relocate his office to Kafanchan because some political consultants said so in other to save his already dead political career!
We must be wise as serpents and gentle as doves, the bible was very clear on that, whatever moves we make politically, we must always remember the hundreds of our women, children, the aged and youths killed under this man’s watch with no remorse from him.
We must remember the over 3000 IDPs spread across Ninte, Chawai, Goska, Aso, Pasakori, Godogodo, Antang, Angwan Anjo, Tachira, etc. living and surviving by the grace of God with no help whatsoever from the same man coming to back to us for dialogue.
May we never forget the above in a hurry and may God almighty grant us the wisdom to deal with this very dicey political situation. Amen.
