It’s not a must to govern a country or to agree to cluelessness worse than the past regime, neither is it a crime to seek for help now that an analogue copycat president who copies word for word of a budget of the former regime and simply added more zeroes in front to loot, squander and to plunder.
When Mr Muhammadu Buhari came into power, we had great hopes that in a matter of 6 months, he will steer the nation on course. We knew we didn’t elect a super president but we also knew a paltry sum of 15 million believed that he had integrity to direct the affairs.
As soon as he came to work, we were pierced with cries of body language being responsible for fuel everywhere. We clapped and dance that a new sheriff is in town. And then the man who never knew subsidy existed paid billions to marketers of petrol.
Despite paying it, the marketers refused to make fuel available and when they do, it’s sold twice the official price.
To remove our minds from the failure already seen in the petroleum sector, the case of $2.1 billion arms deal was coined up. Ever since then, the president and his men have been on autopilot pretending to govern when no governance is taking place.
They channel their energy every morning into the arms scandal as if that is why he was elected. Promises made are now change of promises.
Our school children are yet to get one meal per day while our youths who voted based on N5000 monthly promise won’t be paid again.
The fall of the Naira is not due to our importation of things from abroad but because the dollar has been stacked away and not allow to spread.
The banks who are meant to sell at official prices hoard the dollars and even direct you to black market. It is simple economics that needs no voodoo explanation.
Have you ever wonder why dollar rates fall during Christmas and New year? That is because our countrymen abroad come with plenty of them leading to it being available and thus not so relevant.
Again it needs no magic to know that the economy has been tightened up by Buhari, not to prevent corruption but because he doesn’t even know what’s happening.
We still buy fuel at N150 and no marketer is made a scapegoat. Life is hard in Nigeria yet someone is going to feed wildlife with over N300 million in Aso Rock.
The nation is collapsing and we are warned not to talk as #BuhariWillSucceed.
It’s not a must to govern a country or to agree to cluelessness worse than the past regime neither is it a crime to seek for help now that it’s obvious that an analogue copycat president is in place who copies word for word of a budget of the former regime and simply added more zeroes in front to loot, squander and to plunder.
I am a wailer, wailing for a better Nigeria.
