The synopsis of President Buhari’s response to Olusegun Obasanjo’s letter likening his administration to the brutal Abacha regime is that the previous president is “sick or psychologically challenged”. But I believe the riposte is like that of a blind man mocking one other man who uses beneficial glasses.
Who actually wants medical consideration between Buhari and Obasanjo?
Over the years, Obasanjo has proven keenness of thoughts and body. For a man of his age, that’s uncommon. He has been constant in his supply of slicing missives since President Jonathan’s administration. His “letter-bombs” to Jonathan had been a lot celebrated by those that now insult him for his accustomed selection of weapon, and the target of this hit.
Obasanjo has not given anybody a motive to query his mind-set. In truth, on Sunday, he held a press convention the place he spoke clearly, intelligently and coherently. Could the identical be mentioned of President Buhari?
Watching Buhari disoriented and lost on the APC presidential rally in Delta state, the place he “surrendered” his candidature to Great Ogboru, flagellates speculations about his mind-set.
His weird display, power incoherence and befuddlement on the town-hall assembly with Kadaria Ahmed intensify the identical considerations. And to not overlook his “sit-slump” on the rally in Kaduna; it seems the president is in a rapture of oblivion.
But I believe Buhari is a sufferer.
I mentioned it before, if the president says he’s not conscious of a problem or state of affairs, he ought to be believed. I used to be not attempting at comedy once I mentioned that.
He is absolutely not conscious. I do know there are “principalities in excessive locations” at work.
I believe Buhari has a vanishing style for energy, and he’s extra acutely aware of his well being and managing the vagaries and frailty of outdated age.
I like Buhari. But the 2019 election shouldn’t be about him. It is in regards to the sons of Nebuchadnezzar holding the nation down and utilizing each means to maintain it down.
The election is between these forces and Nigerians. Aisha Buhari, wife of the president, had given us a touch of those vandals.
Really, I can solely specific compassion for the president. We ought to perceive Buhari’s predicament to understand the tenuous state of affairs.
He is a sufferer of those forces, however sadly, it’s a case of the place a rape sufferer is in love along with his abusers or unaware he’s being violated.
A vote against Buhari could be a means of saving him. It could be a means of setting him free with out paying a heavy ransom to his “keepers”.
