Recently the First Lady Aisha Buhari made some comments during the meeting of Islamic Council in Abuja to the effect that Governors should become more caring and less indifference to the provision of basic amenities. It was good and timely to use the opportunity of the gathering of the Islamic religious leaders to shift to the age old blame game.
Since Adam blamed his wife Eve for giving him the evil apple, blame game has become an instrument or a method to justify failure and accountability in all spheres of life. Adam failed to ask his wife where the apple came from, what happened before she harvested it, or to ask her to wait till he asked God. Adam did none of that , but love for his wife drove him to eat the thing, and today women still bear the pangs of pain during child birth, they majorly labor for their Male spouses and as Islam would have it women are really to be seen and not heard. Iam talking about Pudar and all that display the ladies do wearing those black dresses in the heat of the sun!
All part of the curse on women for discovering the bad apple that offended God. On the part of Adam and men, suffering and smiling became their portion to the extent that Christiany declares that a man who does not work should not eat food.
Talk of suffering men? We are suffering it in Nigeria so much under Oga, now ” Major General Buhari per Punch News papers. Permit me to follow them since Oga does not have respect for Our Courts and will allow the desecration of the hallowed Temple of Justice and Rule of Law In Nigeria. May his regime see changes for good, In Jesus name…Amen. Madam , please plead with Oga to also try other tribes in this new level of fight against corruption, let him spread the “joy”.
It was therefore a supposedly master stroke planned and delivered by the Cabal via the good spirit of the First Lady. Let’s then look at the issue on ground.When the stream is spoiled or messed up from the hill top it affects the water all over. When the head is in trouble the whole body is in a confused state.
When no light passes through the eyes, the human body is left in deep darkness. This simple rule of life applies in politics, ie that the rest follow the leader. So when the leader abandons his work, and electoral promises and and concentrates only on his own personal agenda, and that of his ethnic class, his followers do the same. The Boss ( oga) on top charts the route and dictates the pace for his followers. If the Governors fail to follow their leader, they will be classed as overzealous, and over ambitious, which was the fault of Ambode in Lagos. His boss felt threatened by his approaches to achieving results without going to genuflect and get directives. The man on top simply pushed him aside!
In the same token it is said that that one of the rules of power is Never Outshine Your Boss.
If any Governor delivers under APC, as the first lady wants us to think, he would outshine Buhari or Tinubu and will be swept away with the Broom of power!The game therefore is to flow with the flow.
Since Buhari has not delivered on any of the promises he made since 2015, any governor who does not follow his example is basically on his own.
Aso Rock uses power from generating sets to run quite often,The Federal Ministry of Mines Power and Steel uses power from generating sets, All electrical power is under the Federal exclusive list, where will the Governor find power to give to people.
It is on record that the Federal Government is thinking of raising money from taxing families for providing their own borehole water, and governors are just waiting to follow suite. Most Federal Roads are collapsing, what can the Governor do?
The President travels quite frequently to see his Doctors overseas, takes his leave overseas, why then should governors care to provide health care facilities and support?
Only this week, banks are downsizing on staff, the economy has plunged from the position of the 10th best performing upcoming economy in the third world under ” Clueless Jonathan” to the poverty centre of the world, all within 4 years of knowledgeible General Buhari and his “Regime”
.If we must he honest with the First Lady, her blame must rightly go the Oga of APC in Aso Rock.
If she wants the Governors to use their security vote, what is Oga doing with his own security vote? Does she not know that the Governors are flowing with Ogas flow?
Does the First Lady not know also that the all Governors wife’s are dressing to match her style?
Her Excellency should sit back and look at them, and she should begin with the Anambra First Lady. In any case, it ought to be clear now that Nigerians are not interested in the blame game, they simply want food on their tables. They have accepted that APC does not care and the precipitation is what we are praying about now.
Her concerns are genuine because with the present state of the nation, something has to give way at some stage.I think this broom has to be either cut into pieces, or burnt entirely. That should be peoples Next Level.
