I hasten to submit that what the Fight is all about has little, if anything, to do with Corruption, Insecurity or Poverty. If corruption,security and poverty are the issues,
has the civilised world been able to wipe them out in their national space? What makes anyone think that the Nigerian political and administrative classes have the capacity and motivation to exterminate them in our national space? How could they recoup their electioneering expenses if not through corruption by its many shades of grey. Surely they can only recoup through corruption not from the fixed allowances they receive for example as National Assembly members and office holders. Who is fooling who? What can the President only do - no matter the brightness of his screaming integrity - to effectively cage corruption or ruthlessly kill it? To succeed, he sure would need the unflinching support of Legislators and Judges. What would be the chance that the Legislators (who have so much catch up to do balancing their accounts) would give him their support?
What I find at stake is that majority of Nigerians have been blindfolded even by corruption and are unable to understand that the fight is all about the "Soul of Nigeria." Some persons who should know are self interest maximizers, too busy chasing filthy lucre to care.
As politicians play out the political " Game of Deception"it gets clearer and clearer by the day that the political gladiators are taking advantage of the fact that only "one percent of Nigerians think, 4% think that they think; and 95% would rather die than think" - ( I don't remember who was author of the conclusion).
What are the Pointers that Politicians are cashing in on the weakness of Nigerians' as Non-Thinkers?
You have to feel the emptiness floating at electioneering campaigns In the form of propaganda which insult the sensibility of the thinking few but receive the support of the people milling around who have lent themselves to be blindfolded by the cheap appeal to a change they do not understand because they are not able to decipher the emissions as empty propaganda
Is it possible that the fight is over one or all of the following threatening outcomes of the election which the opposition would rather commit suicide than see come to pass?
1. Implementation of the changes to the structure and processes of governance based on the agreements reached at the National Conference at first light;
2.Commitment by Nigerians to the frustration of the aims and objectives of the OIC Agenda including sustenance of Nigeria's membership.
Is it true that any member country which failed to pay annual dues for 10 years must cease to be a member and therefore, the opposition is desperate to takeover the political mountain top of governance to ensure that NIGERIA does not continue to renege on payment of OIC dues as was the case in the last 6 years and lose membership because the success of the incumbent Party at the 2015 General Election would give the leadership of the Party another 4 years and threaten Nigeria's OIC membership through none payment of a total of 10years dues to OIC - an event that would spell technical withdrawal of Nigeria from OIC. membership?
3. The risk associated with the Renewal of Oil Prospecting Licence ( OPL) and Oil Marketing Licence (OML).
Could it be that the licences would be due for renewal after 20 years in operation, during the next (2015-2019) tenure of the incumbent in office; and the chances that the incumbent President may rework the basis of the previous awards in other to achieve fairer distribution of the licences - An act that could threaten the interest of present award holders.
4. The likely frustration of the movement to realise "Sharia or Sword" as National Constitution Doctrine as opposed to Democracy as Constitutional Doctrine of a civilised society.
Could the apparent fear be that the "Grazing Bill" proposed as the instrument for dipping the Sharia and the Sword into the Atlantic Ocean may not be tabled? The wicked Bill has provisions for (1) dedicated routes from Maiduguri to Portharcourt, from Sokoto to Lagos/Apapa; and from Nguru through Abuja to Forecados. (2) Grazing Reserves where the Fulani herdsman stopped to graze his cattle. The Reserve area would be surveyed and gazetted.
The hidden agenda is that if the Bill is passed surreptitiously into law the settler would then have right of abode as citizen with right to establish an emirate council, and the right to sharia legal system even in my fathers backyard at my ancestral home. What subterfuge?
May GOD frustrate the plan of the wicked against the Church and the Nation.
