Buhari Does Not Represent the North

It is increasingly clear to me that Buhari does not represent the north. He only represents himself.

I say this because during this election season what he is doing to the north is worse than what anyone has ever done to them in our entire history. 

Firstly he used INEC to blatantly and crudely rig out a northern presidential candidate.

Secondly he has ensured that not one northern state, whether it be in the north central, north east or north west, has been declared for PDP in the governorship elections even though our candidates have won in many of those northern states, including Adamawa, Kano, Bauchi, Plateau, Taraba, Benue, Nassarawa, Zamfara and elsewhere.

INEC has declared ALL the states in the north in which PDP was far ahead as being “inconclusive” and they have declared APC as the winners in every other northern state. 

This is the first time such a thing has ever happened in our history. It is unprecedented and it is utterly reprehensible.

It represents the greatest rape and sodomisation of the democratic process since our independence in 1960.

Every Nigerian from both north and south must rise up and protest against this grave injustice.

They must stand up, raise their voices in one accord and condemn it in very strong terms. 

I say this because what they have done is evil. It is wicked. It is diabolical. It is barbaric.

It is callous. It is cruel. Worst of all it has turned our country into a laughing stock and the butt of cruel jokes in the international community. 

It is totally and completely unacceptable and by the grace of God it shall not stand.
