Yearning for Ancestral Rule – The Folly of a Nation

Someone called me this morning from Lagos asking me what I will need to help with media campaign for APC and I told him that I’m yet to come to terms with the reasoning of the APC supporters that in this day and age, the only person they can present for presidential election is one of our ancestors who was head of state about 30 years ago and whose official age is 73 but likely to be 78; the whole world is beginning to think that if something is not wrong with us, we are definitely wrong with something.

There are several generations after Buhari and if we think no one is good enough to govern then we have no business being called a nation because the future in non-existent.

Events in our emerging world have overtaken Buhari’s capability and understanding; when you ask him how he is going to do this or that, he would simply refer you back to 1984, are you kidding me?

Anyways, if he’s lucky enough to ever become President again, there are still allies for him; Mugabe of Zimbabwe (90yrs), Hifikepunye Pohamba of Namibia (79yrs), Paul Biya of Cameroon (81yrs), Jacob Zuma of SA (72yrs), Jose Dos Santos of Angola (72yrs), Driss Jettou of Morocco (70yrs), Al Bashir of Sudan (70yrs), Yoweri Museveni (70yrs) etc God bless Africa.
