Prior to the so-called conduct of the February 23 Presidential Election, the polity was heated, tension mounted and hearts of most Nigerians were panting.
Yes, as forecast, the elections were marred with diverse irregularities. Pockets of violence, electoral disorder and statistical fraud tainted the sanctity of the Process.
Should we expect anything better from the APC, as the ruling Party that could not conduct a free and fair Primary?
Even the Holy Writ is clear in such terms:
“For if a man does not know how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the people of God?” (1 Tim 3:5)
Even those of us who are against this evil called a party knew quite well that Buhari will be ‘declared’ as the winner. We knew but we also know that this disorder will not continue.
However, apart from the obvious manipulations, the voters should also be examined. Buhari has won APC Primary with a whooping 14 million votes but now just one more million Nigerians added? What’s that?
Also, who are those that really voted for Mr Buhari? Statistics shows us something very interesting! By my personal observation, he got more from the less enlightened/sane.
Not quite many who are of sound mind and understand true governance voted for Buhari!
You can check that out!
Who is the real loser?
Definitely Atiku is not the loser. Saraki isn’t. Not even PDP.
The real losers are the teeming unemployed Nigerians who have their hopes dashed.
The loser is the ailing economy that lost its chance of recovery
The loser is the Educational system that would have its boost.
The losers are the poor rural dwellers being terrorized by ravaging Fulani herdsmen.
The loser is the deplorable infrastructure that will remain in comatose while this facade of a government ends!
Hence, the real loser is Nigeria!
