Anybody who wants to see drama, fiction or platform where leaders are disgraced let him/her come to Nigeria. Our country is places where every Tom, Dick and Harry will open his mouth to talk rubbish because they insist and believe on freedom of speech guaranteed by the Constitution.
Is the Constitution not a copy of the American system of government? How do the Americans operate the system? Have we ever visited America and witnessed how the system worked before embarking or applying same into the Nigerian system?
This is the second time we are witnessing Nigerian President fallen sick while in power. As if the heaven will fall down, numerous calls were made for the President to step aside or resign from the presidency position. You cannot use a wild banana leaf to shield yourself from the rain and tear it to pieces later when the rain comes to an end.
How many American Presidents fell sick and never resigned or step aside? There were five US Presidents who were in this category namely: Woodrow Wilson (1912 – 1921); Franklin D. Roosevelt (1933 – 1945); Dwight Eisenhower (1953 – 1961); John F. Kennedy (1961 – 1963) and of recent, George Bush (1989 – 1993).
Now, if five of American Presidents have been sick in Office, what is wrong if Nigerian current President, Muhammadu Buhari is also sick? Is it a new thing? Were they called upon to resign their elected position they sworn in to protect, depend and preserve? What is good for the goose must be good for the gander!
Is democracy a game of unintelligent people? We expect people to be fair in their judgment. However, with the current development happening in the country, we know the fight for the corruption must fight back. But, will it succeed? He who pursues an innocent chicken will always stumble in the process.
Apart from that, there were eight American Presidents who have died in Office. The four out of the eight died of natural causes. They were: William Henry Harrison (1841); Zachary Taylor (1850); Warren Harding (1923) and Franklin Delano Roosevelt (1945).
The four other American Presidents who died but were assassinated include Abraham Lincoln (1865); James A. Garfield (1881); William McKinley (1901) and John F. Kennedy (1963).
Death is in the hands of ALLAH! Nobody knows when, where, how or who will die today, tomorrow or beyond. Why does some unguided element(s) will jump into the unknown to make unfortunate remarks in areas where they had no control or allowed to judge a situation? They said if somebody is against you, the first thing to remember is airplane takes off against the wind facing it not with it!
Democracy as highlighted cannot be taken for granted. The achievements/success recorded by the sick President has never been done in the country. This is the first time in the history of Nigerian democracy in uprooting an incumbent government to an opposition one, because when a rife fruit sees an honest man, it will drop on its own to show some solidarity.
The aim was to install sanity in all the sectors of the economy. It is the first time, a Whistle blowing policy was judged to be the best inplemented with a view to making the country FREE from illegal acquision of wealth. He, who does not look ahead, always remains behind pretending being a looser.
Enough is enough! Nigerians are becoming wiser now than before. If democracy is to succeed, it is time to allow it prosper in order to a lay the foundation of good governance for the future of Nigerians. We will not allow some few elements dominating the scene of the media with the so-called elders telling Nigerians what to do on the leadership we strived to install under the most free and fair election ever held in the country.
This is because the person who has not travelled widely thinks his mother is the best cook!
