I can’t wait for these elections to come and go. So that peace can return to this country once again.
Elsewhere elections are just means to democratically elect SERVANTS of the people but in Nigeria, it is to elect LEADERS of the people that is why the processes leading to the electiond have continued to heat up the polity and increase tension everywhere in the country on a daily basis.
One press statement after another coming out from PDP, APC, SDP, ACPN, CUPP and political power gladiators across the country.
One drama after another. If it is not Dino Melaye and the Nigeria Police Force playing out one ‘comedy’ script after another, it will be Senator Melaye releasing a comedy song.
Entered Nnamdi Kanu and IPOB drama. In one movie, “our” IPOB is acting with the Nigeria Army, and in another movie scene, IPOB is acting with the federal government of Nigeria.
‘Actor’ Nnamdi Kanu early last year (2018) released a movie titled ‘Buhari is cloned’, ‘he is Jubril of Sudan.’ This movie was so popular in the Nigerian political scene such that Buhari himself had to feature in the movie in Poland on Sunday, December 2, 2018, when he commented thus; “A lot of people hoped that I died during my ill-health. It is real me… I will soon celebrate my 76th birthday and I will still go strong.” ‘Bubu’ your reaction wasn’t necessary, it was just a movie script directed by ‘actor’ Kanu to reduce tension in our polity.
Atiku Abubakar the PDP flagbearer recently featured in an American movie alongside the Senate President, Bukola Saraki. And, there were celebrations in Nigeria by Atiku’s supporters who trended his pictures and videos on social media showing how he had handshakes with ‘oyibo’ men and women and discussing with them in the homeland of America. They were happy that, at least, a Nigerian political actor (Atiku) has made a breakthrough in America. Thank God for them o! It’s not easy. This comic was just to shoot a movie script titled: “Atiku can travel to America”, wow! What a fun? And our award-winning actor, Nnamdi Kanu released another movie, “Atiku is from Cameroon”. Hahaha chai! Fun everywhere you go.
Currently, we are watching the “MoneyBag” movie script being directed by Governor Nasir Ahmad el-Rufai of Kaduna State and his foreign partners. This is coming after the movie script acted by his Kano State counterpart, Governor Abdullahi Ganduje, titled: “Kano Governor bribe videos,” has refused to leave the movie scene.
Hmmm, Oby Ezekwesili. The famous ‘Bring Back Our Girls’ actress did not want to be pushed aside. She became a presidential flagbearer of the Allied Congress Party of Nigeria (ACPN) and after the Presidential Debate, she produced her movie script titled: “Oby chicken out of the contest,” while her party scripted a movie titled: “ACPN adopt Buhari. And not done, Oby returns with Part Two of her script: “Oby adopt Atiku”.
Hahaha, so strange, funny and comical though, that the Social Democratic Party (SDP’s) Presidential ‘candidates’ Donald Duke and Jerry Gana are still battling in courts. And, the Court of Appeal pronounced Mr Duke as the flagbearer, his party scripted a movie titled: “SDP endorse Buhari”. Hahaha so funny movie.
Still on the endorsement movie script. Have I talked about the script titled: “Northern Elders Forum, Middle Belt forum, PANDEF, Ohaneze Ndigbo and a faction of Afenifere endorse Atiku,” very funny that some of these group came out to deny the endorsement.
Thank God the dust generated by the movie titled: “Buhari suspends the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN)” is dying down gradually.
Oh, I almost left out ASUU, FG and the NANS movie. Thank God the actors have finnally called off the three months strike ‘conditionally’ o!
May God save us oh!
