Yar Adua has every right to be the president of Nigeria just like more than 140 million other persons in the country. He has been desribed as a humble man and I concur with that. The EFCC has declared him corrupt free (that I do not agree with since I have never been in Katsina state to know how he ran his government or awarded contracts) and because the EFCC turned to be an instrument in the hands of the evil one. EFCC may have had an impact on Nigeria but the selectiveness of their agenda was too obvious. Ask the crying former governor of Borno State why he shed tears! If EFCC was neutral, Iwu and Obasanjo should be in jail by now. Don’t even look too far back because Babangida and the rest of them are still free men. What then is the job of the EFCC? Nonsense!
I have decribed Nigerian Politics as the worst tragedy of the 21st century. That opinion stands especially because of the wasting minds in Nigeria and abroad. Nigerians are arguably the most intelligent people alive and they are ruled by nonentities and empty skulls.
That Yar Adua is now the president of Nigeria reveals that he is a corrupt man and he has no conscience. It doesn’t matter that he is the least corrupt among all the other top candidates! The crux of this matter is not in the person of Yar Adua but the illegality and the non-acceptance of the process that brought him to power. Those who fail to see this simple point cannot be intelligent. They are part of the myriads of the Nigerian problems.
If he is the nice guy that they say he was, Yar Adua should have turned down the results of the criminalised selection (there was NEVER an election in Nigeria in 2007) on the platter of his honour.
Yar Adua may have noble intentions, but it would have been nice for him to care about following manners and attitudes that show civility, common sense and the respect for the rule of law.
He has just inherited a burden. He represents an offshoot of the remnants of our recent traumatised memory.
May Nigerians be delivered from the evil cabal and tropical juntas/gangsters.
