the attitude shown by some Nigerians and their
ultrancess abroad, holding ethnicity above national
values and interest.
to put this question across to Nigerians both home and
abroad; Can an average Nigerian give the ideology of the
political parties that we have in Nigeria, is it that of
APC or PDP? Capital NO! Nigerians are been bothered or
concern on the parties that will favour them in wealth
or favour their ethnic groups. And the country Nigeria
is the least of their worries.
question is, can an average Nigerian put aside ethnic
objectively access both leaders and come up with what
Nigeria deserve and not their selfish and ethnic
interest? Without doubt the
answer is NO!. A student of
mine said that the
reason why he supports APC is because of their (family)
the young generation has been bought and sold with a
cheap price in it’s morden age.
When you go
through the Jonathan campaign committee 2015 and that of
Buhari, they are ethnically positioned. Asking Gov.
Amachi to be the DG of Buhari’s campaign committee in
the 2015 election, this is not just as a result of the
money he will invest in it, it is evidently clear that
APC would want him to deliver the south south to his
political party. It’s a strategy in politics to weaken
Jonathan in his zone.
question to both political parties is this, for APC not
to be able to find any younger candidate worthy or
capable to represent the party, this also shows the
states of the party and the people in it. As a result,
within the party, Buhari a 72 years old retired
general is the only trust worthy, reliable and
capable politician the party can present, that tells
Nigerians that all others in the party are unqualified
and these are the same people that he will nominate to
work with him. Dosen’t this suggest that we will either
remain where we are or move backward?
And to PDP,
if the party and the people are saying Jonathan has not
performed at all and the party has not been able to
prove Nigerians otherwise. PDP still projecting Jonathan
as his candidate for the next election also shows to the
people that no other capable candidate other than
Jonathan to move the nation to where we ought to be. In
addition to PDP, the issue Nigerians have is with your
campaign so far, the people home and abroad wants to
hear what the government has done for the past six years
and what the government intend to do when given the
Suffice it to say that,
in Nigeria has been the cankerworm eating the very bases
of our national development, growth and stability and
also been visible
in Nigeria politics for so long a time.
The fall of
the Arab Spring and the fall of their glory and might,
was as a result of the wrong move made by the youths of
these affected countries. Nigerian youths should not
make such cowardly mistake they will forever regret and
live with. It’s time
for us to define and design our faith, not the faith

let Nigerians decide for once in 2015 election without
ethnic cleavages and selfish interest the best leader
that will move Nigeria forward. And i hope we will be
able to position ourselves away from how people have
tagged us as an “ethnocentric nation”.
