If not Buhari, who?
By Uche Ezechukwu 0803 622 3337 [email: email@example.com]
Monday, April 04, 2011
Last weekend, it looked as if Nigeria was marshalling for war and not just elections. The preparations were not only physical; they were more psychological, to the extent that the government created an overall impression that the elections which debuted with the National Assembly polls last Saturday was not just routine activities which Nigerians should have started getting used to after 12 years.
Even some schools were ordered shut as parents and wards were suddenly invited to evacuate their wards, even before they could take their examinations. It did not matter to anybody that they had earlier lost three clear weeks to the voters registration exercise. Any government which creates the impression that it cannot protect its youngsters and children in school has no business governing anybody. For, even during wars, schools remain in operation.
Harassed crowds at the banks, airports, motorparks and other public institutions rushed around like people on last rites of passage. In the midst of this bedlam, what seems to have become a universal feeling is that the Nigerian politician has become like a leopard which is incapable of changing its spots. It has been taken for granted that rather than change, the Nigerian political class will remain corrupt, undisciplined and therefore, dangerous, especially to his own kind. In that process, he has become dangerous even to the most unconcerned of bystanders – the rest of us.
Of course, anyone who does not agree that the only obstacles standing on Nigeria’s road to greatness and phenomenal development are the twin evils of indiscipline and corruption must be either dishonest or naive. There is no evil today that cannot be ultimately traced to those two factors. It then goes without saying that if these two are eliminated from our society and body politic, our nation can easily rub shoulders with the equally gifted nations of the world. It is these two evils that ultimately combine to make elections a ‘do-or-die’ affair as President Obasanjo shamelessly prescribed, but which Goodluck Jonathan, in his disarming naiveté and innocence, is trying to change. In that determination that has been sabotaged from the onset, he wants to roll out a gargantuan arsenal to prove us naysayers wrong.
Next Saturday, Nigerians would be expected to move ahead of last weekend’s ritual to elect the president who would hold the present and future of our country in his hands. As usual, emotions would dominate logic and commonsense in the choices made by our lopsidedly uneducated and uninformed citizenry. Primordial sentiments will still play a crucial role in the choices that most will make. But as next Saturday comes nearer and nearer, the God inside every voter will come alive and conscience will nudge him and her to allow the head, rather than the heart to take prominence.
In many Nigerians from all the cardinal points of Nigeria, their heart will instruct them to stand behind that suave looking, gentle and innocent looking gentleman in a bowler heart, who looks like a neighbour next door. He is likeable and even wears a name that invokes Godliness and panders to our growing woeful and disastrous surrender to the divine benevolence as the solution to our many man-made predicaments. Jonathan will appeal to most people who are incapable of thinking deeply and are, therefore, incapable of placing what has been and what could be, side by side.
Those are people who have been unable to keep mental records as to remember that no promise that have been made in the last four years has been kept. ‘My people’, without any proof or indication, already believe that their ‘brother’ would turn their tattered landscapes into El Dorado. The likes of Gov. Peter Obi and his brother governors have been boasting of how the South East would suddenly be transformed into the Candy Mountain when not one of those lofty promises was captured in the 2011 budget. If Nigerian voters had only hearts and no heads, Jonathan would sweep the polls.
However, I have every reason to believe that at some crucial point in the life of an individual, it is his head that rules. It is the head that queries about the prospects for the better future, after a clear-minded assessment of the past and the present. It is the head that queries whether you are better or worse now than you were 12 years, eight years or four years ago. It is the head that queries about how far past promises have been fulfilled, and that even though the head and the senses have been befuddled with the endless rattles of beautiful adverts, it wonders whether any of those adverts has been able to stand the test of truth.
The voters who use their heads would recall that we have received excuses and no action and would start to reason that Nigerians deserve better than excuses, especially excuses that have become insults. Like the one which claims that we cannot get our refineries to work because ‘cartels’ that import refined petroleum would not let us. Then the other one that we cannot improve our power supply because the cartels that import generators won’t let us. The thinking Nigerians would start to reason that for us to escape from these quagmires and more into whose prisons corruption, indiscipline and lack of patriotism have held us hostage, it goes without saying that we must have someone with the capacity to give battle to these evil, especially someone who has shown the ability to do so in the past, and who has been proven to have never wavered from those commitments.
Muhammadu Buhari might not be the most qualified person to govern Nigeria at this point in time, but he is definitely the most capable among all those who have presented themselves for the 2011 presidential race. He has remained incorruptible and ramrod in his sticking to principles. More importantly he has proved all his critics wrong in all the things that have been invented against him. He has been accused of being uncompromising and rigid, but in the condition that Nigeria finds itself today, those could only be salutary recommendations.
One great shortfall of Jonathan’s aspiration is that he is a pigeon among the hawks; no matter how much he might want to act in his natural good nature, he will be frustrated by the evil leviathan that is his party. It would therefore be great folly of him to believe that he can grow above his shadow which is the PDP. On the other hand, Buhari is uncompromising in his principled fights in any direction that has been adopted. You cannot come back to ask him to make compromises in order to accommodate self-serving interests. I know because I have served him as the director of his media and publicity in 2003. His fair-mindedness is legendary and in spite of accusations by Lilliputians that he is extremist and discriminatory, no one has ever been able to come forward with concrete evidence.
It is not for nothing that he is reputed as ‘Mai Gaskiya’, the truthful one. He has never told a lie and will not do so, even to win an election. It is needless to say too many words to convince Nigerians that our present and future can only be safe if we put them in Buhari’s hands next Saturday and that is the only way that the next four years will not see us a country that will be competing with the other failed nations of the world.
The challenges of the present and future are enormous but they will be a child play if we do not rescue Nigeria from the stranglehold of the marauders who are holding us hostage. Buhari does not only have the capacity to end indiscipline and corruption. He is also capable of bringing back accountability at all levels of governance because he will lead by example and transparency conduct of governance. He is prepared to make the necessary sacrifices to achieve it. He has the guts, the courage, fairness and a will of steel to salvage Nigeria and bring about security of lives and property which have defied all the previous lip service that has been paid.
I endorse Buhari because he is the solution to the hydra-headed problems of Nigeria which look insolvable but which can be swept away by a determined, iron-willed and honest leadership that is committed to the present and future of this country. Nigeria needs that type of leadership now than ever.
If it is not only Buhari who can raise Nigeria from its knees, who else, among all the candidates can? Use your head, not your heart.
