Uneducated Buhari lectures at Global Education Summit ~ by Bayo Oluwasanmi
General Muhammadu Buhari, The Butcher of Aso Rock, was dogged by his lack of education during the 2015 general elections. The embarrassing hysteria centered on the fact that Buhari never studied beyond elementary school. Though he claimed high school certificate or its equivalent, there’s no evidence to such claim.
In a civilized nation, Buhari would not have come close within striking distance of becoming the president. In the UK Boris Johnson graduated from Oxford University with degree in Literae Humaniores, meaning the Classics of Ancient Greece and Rome. Former Prime Ministers David Cameron, Tony Blair are also from Oxford. Former Prime Minister Gordon Brown has a PhD. Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel has a PhD. Chinese President Xi Jinping also holds a doctorate and Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has a master’s degree from the University of Southern California.
France’s Francois Hollande had a postgraduate degree from the elite ENA (Ecole Nationale d’Administration). Australia’s Prime Minister Tony Abbot is a Rhodes scholar from Oxford. Canada’s Prime Minister Stephen Harper has a master’s degree in economics. Russia’s Vladimir Putin, also has a PhD. Former US President George W. Bush studied at Yale and at Harvard. Bill Clinton was a Rhodes scholar at Oxford and Barack Obama was at Harvard. President Joe Bidden had his undergraduate degree from University of Delaware and his law degree from Syracuse University.
Academic qualification from top universities is an indication that the candidate has a fine and balanced mind. But our vacillating, indecisive, aloof, close minded, wicked, sadistic tribal bigot, and demonic tyrant Buhari does not belong to this list.
It is undeniably painful to see uneducated Buhari lecture world leaders at the Global Education Summit in London. Buhari states that “Anybody who misses the opportunity of education will miss everything because you cannot succeed outside your educational qualifications.” Ironically, Buhari was referring to himself, the uneducated Fulani herdsmen terrorists, the Boko Haram terrorists who are bent to wipe out western education.
Going by his statement, it means Buhari, Fulani herdsmen terrorists, Boko Haram terrorists, and the Almajiris in the north missed everything in life. It’s not surprising therefore that Buhari has failed as a leader. Also, it’s no wonder that Fulani herdsmen terrorists and Boko Haram terrorists took to terrorism. I could not agree more with Chanakya when he said that “The life of an uneducated man, is as useless as the tail of a dog which neither covers it’s rear end, nor protects it from the bites of insects.” Buhari, Fulani herdsmen terrorists, Boko Haram terrorists, and the northern Almajiris proved Chanakya right. They are not only useless, they have become Nigeria’s number one enemies that threaten our humanity.
Since Buhari became president six years ago, what revolutionary education bill has Buhari initiated to revamp our moribund education system? When was the last time the curricula of Nigerians schools reviewed and updated to be in line with the academic demands and requirements for the 21st Century world of work? The classroom learning environment of our children looks like where the hurricane passed through. What did Buhari do about children learning under leaking roofs, dilapidated buildings? What presidential interventions did he initiate to prepare our children for tomorrow and make them competitive with other children in the world?
What about students carrying their own chairs and desks to school every day? As I write, some children are learning under the mango tree! It is being generous to say that our education has been bastardized, mutilated, and destroyed. The Fulanis in their unending war to destroy our education, took out History from the school curriculum. Nigeria is the only country that I know in the world where history is not taught in schools.
Because Buhari is uneducated, he’s uncivilized, barbaric, uninformed, and unintelligent. He made life miserable, unbearable, unlivable, and meaningless for Nigerians by his reign of terror. “You do not lead by hitting people in the head,” warns President Dwight Eisenhower, “that’s assault, not leadership.” President Boris Yeltsin cautioned tyrants like Buhari: “You could build a throne with bayonets, but you can’t sit on it for long.”
It’s an aberration for Buhari to lecture on education at the Global Education Summit in London. Wrong person. Wrong place. Wrong time. Wonders shall never end in Nigeria!
NASS: National assylum run by inmates
Albert Camus yearned for a country that an honorable man could love and love justice too. Majority of Nigerians are convinced that Nigeria is not such a country courtesy of members of the National Asylum (NASS) run by inmates. There’s a widespread hopelessness among Nigerians about Nigeria. These are times of dramatic conflict between the forces of good and evil, light and darkness.
Separation of powers in a federal system of government is associated with checks and balances. The checks and balances system provides each branch of government individual powers to check the other branches and prevent any one branch from becoming too powerful. For example, the president can veto any bill passed by the NASS, but a two-thirds vote in the NASS can override the veto. The president can appoint Supreme Court judges, but the Senate must approve these choices.
The NASS members have become rubber stamps for The Butcher of Aso Rock, General Muhammadu Buhari by blindly following him. They are complicit in the flawed stewardship of Nigeria. They are putting their rubber-stamp approach to politics ahead of the priorities of the Nigerian people they represent. In a democracy, legislators have the right of dissent and the freedom to disagree with the executive- the president. The other option is a blanket dictatorship given to Buhari.
In the absence of active, vigilant, and concerned legislators, Buhari has become a maximum ruler never seen in a democracy. The inmates who run the NASS let Buhari gets away with murder. They let Buhari subvert our democracy. They allow Buhari to uproot the rule of law and muzzle the judiciary. With their complicity, Buhari is the newest African Emperor in the 21st Century!
They encourage and empower Buhari to flout court rulings. Because the legislators have sold their oversight functions for a pittance, Buhari does what he likes. He terrorized a section of the country – the southerners. The Fulani terrorists are untouchable. The SSS has become his personal secret service police. The legislators failed to hold SSS accountable or call the agency to order. They over look the killings, rape, robbery, carried out by Buhari and his Fulani terrorists. They gave Buhari power to kill, arrest, persecute, and prosecute Yorubas, Igbos, and other non-Fulani ethnic groups.
While Buhari was busy stacking all federal offices, agencies, corporations, judiciary, armed forces with Fulanis, the legislators turned blind eyes to the Federal Character clause in the Constitution. Their preoccupation is fighting over “juicy positions” and looting. They failed to invoke the constitution to check nepotism, terrorism, and other barbaric excesses of a possessed tyrant. They are not bothered about equity, fairness, and justice for all Nigerians. They let Buhari and his Fulani jihadists hold the rest rest of the country hostage. Instead of abrogating the fascist document – the Abdulsalami Abubakar 1999 Constitution and substituting it with a new one, they keep on amending the useless document. They behave as if all is well with the country. The immediate problem that consumes their attention is 2023.
No sane Nigerian expects anything better from the loosely controlled criminals and ex-convicts. They have been neutered by greed, fraud, and corruption. Their political pendulums oscillate between romantic illusions bothering on blindness and cruelty. Their ineptitude, greed, and cowardice suggest they are intellectually and morally sterile.
All who are not lunatics are agreed about certain things: that it is better to be alive than dead. Better to be adequately fed than starved. Better to be free than a slave. Only inmates at National Asylum think otherwise. The law makers are greedily content that Nigerians should suffer. The competition of crass buffoonery in the NASS of money changers depicts a theater-cruelty style that is unmatched in our history of representative democracy.
It is unduly fastidious and punitively grinding to attempt to abbreviate the extent of the lunacy of the legislators and how far they will go to please, praise, and shield Buhari from facing the wrath of the people. The only thing the brazen-faced law makers are known for is: they specialized in coordinating looting spree.
With these inmates in charge of NASS, Nigeria is doomed. Nigeria is beyond repairs, restructure, and can never be redeemed. The only way out of the morass of lies, corruption, inaction, and slavish obedience to a terrorist president is break up.
