Politics wasn’t designed to be this entertaining but if it was, I’m entirely sure it wasn’t designed to have this much stupidity floating around.
Ever since the previous elections were conducted, the whole world turned to Nigeria who got rid of an incumbent president for the first time in recent years – A change Nigerians accepted in good fate, APC and PDP fans inclusive. But before I proceed, what does that even mean to be a fan of a political party? Well, in Nigeria, a PDP fan would abandon all logic and reasonable thinking and vote in a PDP president no matter how badly unqualified he is – That is how bad politics is here. Political parties have been reduced to no more than football clubs with fans that will go against reasonable thinking and place bets to favour their club regardless of the odds and how bad recent history is.
Ever since President Muhammadu Buhari became President, it has been one “pardon me to use the word” stupid complain or the other from his rival party. Instead of these complaints being directed and represented in the most dignifying of manners, PDP will take to social networks and prove to Nigerians why we didn’t vote them in again by being such jokers.
There has been a lot of recent activities but I’m really only going to throw light on the most recent squabble between one unsupportive group of individuals and one First Lady sick and tired of their crap.
In the recent Halliburton scandal that led to the imprisonment of Congressman Williams Jefferson in the United States, a certain Aisha Buhari was named to have played a criminal part in the affair and although the media claims that Aisha Buhari isn’t our First Lady, the Governor of Ekiti State Ayodele Fayose (who, mind you owes his workers and pensioners at least 5 months’ salary) goes and accuses her of being involved.
Angry, our First Lady says this:
Governor Fayose may have to take extra security measures to prevent Aisha Buhari or the 1st family from assassinating him.— PDP Nigeria (@PdpNigeria) June 21, 2016
The Buhari led government with recent development can assassinate Fayose. From persecuting members of PDP, assassination may be next.— PDP Nigeria (@PdpNigeria) June 21, 2016
Nigeria is in a mess, let’s rally round and be supportive, as oppositions in power, we understand your eagerness to reclaim what you lost but this is certainly not the way to go about it. The next elections aren’t until 2019 anyway so let’s put aside petty rivalry and wait a while before we display campaign antics.
