It is no longer news that president Buhari is incapable of discharging his functions as the number one citizen of Nigeria.
Mr. Buhari will now be leading the largest black nation on earth from his bedroom, toilet or the other room depending on where the information meets him.
A Distant President? No, Thanks..!
By Adeola Aderounmu
Since the advent of the computer age, it has been possible for students or candidates to study from home. Distance learning allows room especially for people who want to work and study at the same time. It also helps some people to study while on various forms of leave from work including parental leave. The benefits of distance learning are many.
Nigeria is adding a new dimension to what can be done at a distance. The president, Mr. Buhari will now be leading the largest black nation on earth from his bedroom, toilet or the other room depending on where the information meets him.
This is an example of arrogance by the clueless ruling party, the APC. It’s pure nonsense.
It is no longer news that president Buhari is incapable of discharging his functions as the number one citizen of Nigeria. It is common knowledge that he is now behind the scene. It is also very unclear who has been calling the shots since he-Mr. Buhari stopped appearing for duties.
As it stands, it is no longer golden that Nigerians are silent and not unanimous on this issue. Since the arrival of Buhari from his treatment at a London hospital, Nigeria had finally come to a halt in terms of formal presidential duties.
The fact the people are not outraged is of huge concern. They have been so battered they cannot even conduct a thorough thinking-that the APC is evil and serving their selfish interests just like the clueless PDP before it. What will it take to see that it’s just the politicians changing sides while the game (oppressing and subduing the people) is the same?
It will be a pure guess-work if anyone outside of the walls of the presidency can say that they know who has been in charge of Nigeria since Buhari went mute. Invariably that chant about the cabal continues to rent the air across all regimes whether headed by a civilian or a tyrant.
Let us be clear about the facts. President Buhari is an old man. He is seriously sick. Sickness is not only a function of age. Anything that destabilises the normal functioning of the human body can bring about sickness and in severe situations, death. Of all the things that are natural, death is the only one that is guaranteed. Young and old people can be sick and in the absence of a sound mind no reasonable work can be done.
Healthy people have found it impossible to rule Nigeria to the path of development. Whilst they were healthy they spent their time on promoting corruption and supervising the rape on the land and people. How much harder will it be for a man who is very sick and of unsound mind?
The APC perspective of ruling Nigeria is a complete suicide mission. I’m lost for words on what they think about the rest of us. The APC is the new axis of evil in the land.
Ruling Nigeria from Abuja has been shown to be a disaster. It will never work. The situation is laughable and ridiculous when sickness is the keyword even as the entire country begs for revampment and resuscitation.
In line with the facts that mortals can be sick or become redundant due to illnesses, it is now imperative for president Buhari to take a bow and take a rest. In my opinion, it seems that the man is being held hostage. For, I find it hard to believe that an incapable person will hold on tight to the office of the president of Nigeria. Of what use is such a do-or-die motive?
In my opinion:
- Buhari can no longer discharge his duties as the president of Nigeria
- Buhari is no longer in a stable condition-he is not strong enough to withstand the rigours of the office of the first citizen of Nigeria.
Silence is no longer golden. People must not out of fear refuse to speak out against a remarkable evil deed like the one being perpetrated now by the APC or some invisible forces using Mr. Buhari as their guinea pig or scape goat.
For several months, all that we have read concerning Buhari are attributed to releases by various special assistants. The latest was atrributed to Lai Mohammed stating that Buhari will now work from home.
The undertones are clear and undeniable. It may not be out of place that people are deciding for Mr. Buhari. There is no proof that he had said anything in a very, very long time.
What is the way forward?
If Mr. Buhari is of sound mind, if he is healthy, he has to prove that he is not been flung up and down or here and there by the parasites and leeches around him. The only way to do this is to admit his incapablities and retire home permanently. He should hand over officially to Yemi Osinbajo so that we can wish him well as he continues to fight for his good health and stability of mind and soul.
If Mr. Buhari does not do the needed handover or if the people around him cannot facilitate this before it is too late, then it means for real that there is no presidency in Nigeria. What we have in that case is the well-acclaimed cabal who continues to capture and ruin Nigeria from one generation to another.
The transfer of power does not solve Nigeria’s problems. The only thing it will ensure is that we do not add one more problem that will distract us further from the gigantic problems that the country is already facing.
