“… Okonkwo, That boy calls you father, bear no hand in his death.”
[Ezeudu’s warning to Okonkwo in The Chapter Seven of Chinua Achebe’s Masterpiece “Things Fall Apart” is the best line to open an address to President Muhammadu Buhari.].
The warning depicts that in a traditional African society, when a man has hope and faith in you, even if you have no way to put him through his trouble, you should not be on the path that hastens his death. Trust should not be broken.
The average Nigerian man prior to 2015 was a troubled man.
He was unaware that he would be able to “throw out” whoever he did not love and bring who he loved, he was unaware that his vote meant something in changing a government, he was totally unaware that his voice could be heard….. Many thanks to Professor Attahiru Jega’s Permanent Voters card and Zuckerberg’s Facebook the perspective changed and the unfortunate lamb personified in President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan was led to the slaughter, basically in trial to see if this “changes” were something to buy.
These people had beliefs and they had faith, these people hoped that their slowly growing economy would rush growth and not creep FORWARD like it was under Jonathan, these people hoped that the PMS they bought at an Outrageous and unreasonable price of 87 Naira per litre would return to about 47Naira.
These people hoped that the naira that had crashed so badly to about 180 Naira to a dollar would return to about 100 Naira / Dollar.
These people hoped that the unreasonable Herdsmen who slaughtered in the Benue Valley and beyond in Tens under Jonathan would not have a ground when their messiah came on.
These people hoped that a president who gave them an FOI Law and arrested them when they insulted his wife (if he ever did)’ would give way for a president who wouldn’t mind’ if they named their dogs ‘after him’.
These people had hopes that onward things would move better and become cheaper from what they had.
These people had hopes.
We had hopes.
We waited for a saviour.
He came in ‘Buhari’.
Rather than be the saviour, he has stood on the sidelines and with his deafening silence (apologies to Rafael Fanan Magen ), he has watched us fall slowly…
…Buhari, this people called you saviour, do not bear a hand in their extinction.
YOU HAVE READ IT ALL. WHAT A TERROR! IF NOTHING IS DONE, ALL THE ERRORS THIS PRESENT GOVERNMENT IS MAKING WOULD POSE OUR FUTURE WITH GREAT HORRORS.
