People Don’t Get Over Their Problems By Running Away From Them. – Says Elempe Dele.
“To be careful about rhetorics from our leaders and even us concerning a looming civil war and or this country tilting towards a completely failed state is yet the best thing any patriot should do in an ideal situation.
However, the indices, statistics, and reality on ground must be looked at keenly so that we don’t try to wish away facts as if in them the truth of the sorry state we are will go away magically.
People don’t get over their problems by running away from them, they face them squarely. In a country were over 100 people, including security operatives are either killed or Kidnapped on weekly basis cannot be said not to be at the verge of a civil strife of sort. In a country where each nationality is hoisting their flags and printing their own currencies in serious Secession bids cannot be said to be in a state of peace.
In a country where a quasi-state like Boko Haram and Bandits hold large swarth of the country as their caliphates, collecting taxes and recruiting the willing and unwilling, cannot be said to be tranquil.
The misbegotten call those who tell it the way it is names of their own inventions, but they are those who live in lies and denials so we don’t really factor them into our candid national discussions. They are mostly small sects of blackmailers and gaslighted propagandists.
There is a simple curative lore to our problem; Buhari, who is totally absent, should resign from office with immediate effect and alacrity. He should handover to Prof. Osinbajo and let there be a convocation of a national conference to negotiate out our union.
The contraption does not seem to be working – since 1960, and it got worsened under General Buhari due to his nepotistic, tribalistic and religious tendencies. And on this basis, no united NIGERIA can be sort under him.
Coupled with his ineptitude, clannishness, incompetence, ailment, absenteeism, he is not fit for the job, which he has never been fit for.
Nigeria is not a small sect of people where you oversee as a mujahedeen. NIGERIA is a vast multi-ethnic nationalities with different cultures, different religious and different resources. The people are generally rebelling against Buhari’s unforced failures.”
