An Open Letter To GEN Buhari APC Presidential Hopeful. by Akpan107(m): 7:49am On Oct 22, 2014
This article was written by Donald Ekpo.
It's quite long but not withstanding, it's
a good read. AN OPEN LETTER TO GEN. MUHAMMADU
BUHARI AND HIS ADVISERS
cc: Tinubu, Ameachi, Elrufai, Okorocha Sir, In as much as I could have fared better
by just keeping mute and allowing you,
our perpetual unelectable past military
dictator and Head of State General
Buhari to go to the polls and fail as usual,
I find it very amusing, embarrassing and insulting that you keep allowing
yourself to be deceived by those you call
aides. In 2003, you were deceived, you fell for
it and got embarrassed though
unnoticed. In 2007 you tried again, you
came out crying and swearing, yet it
made no difference. In 2011, you
probably felt like Abraham Lincoln, so you came to try again, you were
massacred in the polls. Out of anger you
called out your butchers to go on a killing
spree, and several hundreds of innocent
Nigerians were killed. I remember you
wept and promised never to try again. I wonder what came over you again Sir,
I wonder who advised you, I wonder
what makes you feel that you could take
advantage of the misplaced zoning
formula of the PDP to make yourself as
the only available consensus northern candidate like Atiku. Sir, you believe in
the absence of a PDP northern
candidature, you stand a chance? Sir, you
may have been fully convinced by the
turn out during your declaration. Oh!
What a deceit. Whoever did this to you General does not like you. On a second thought, I sort to ask who
your immediate advisers are? can you
imagine that the likes of Bola Ahmed
Tinubu, Lai Mohammed, Elrufai, baby
Governor Rotimi Ameachi and disgraced
governor Timipri Sylva are now you closest advisers. What a people. Sir their names alone can
be defined as the selfish, power-hungry
and con-men of our time. If you ask
them what qualities of you makes you
electable, Sir am sure they will tell you
that you are incorruptible. Incorruptible? and you are feasting with corrupt men.
You are seen with them, they think with
you and you act like them. And you
expect Nigerians to assess Bola Ahmed
Tinubu as incorruptible? You want Nigerians to look at your
financier the Child Governor as
incorruptible? Lord Jesus!!!. And because
birds of the same feather flock together,
they were able to advise you to lie to
Nigerians that you borrowed money from the bank because of your
relationship with your bank manager?
When did busy bodied Ameachi become
your bank manager? As incorruptible as
you are, you could not tell them that you
don't lie? Your advisers also told you to tell the
world that Abacha was incorruptible? it
is alright, I understand, You are as
incorruptible as General Sanni Abacha. Mr General Sir, I never knew how corrupt
Abacha was until the likes of Bola
Ahmed Tinubu told Nigerians. I never
knew that you could convince them of
your very self and Abacha's
incorruptibility until I saw them flocking with you. I never knew you could also
convince them to come with you to visit
General IBB to give you his blessings. Amongst all the Generals I know in the
Nigerian Army, you have been the most
inconsistent. First, like in my dream, you
took up a job from your junior officer
that was one of the arrow heads in the
coup that toppled your government. Yet you carried a grudge against IBB and you
still do. You took the job because it availed you
the opportunity to steal Petroleum Trust
Funds meant for development. You
stooped so low just for money. You have
never been sincere in your life. You keep
telling Nigerians you are broke, you have never told Nigerians what you do
for a living. You don't work, you don't farm, you
don't own an investment. Sir how do
you feed and fly around in a private jet?
Sir how much is your pension? Let me remind you sir. Shortly before the
coup that you plotted to topple a
democratically government in December
1983, HE Alhaji Shehu Shagari excused
you in Jos during an event, and told you
he has heard rumors of an impending coup, You people were seated together,
He spoke to you in confidence, yet you
lied to him, you acted as pretentious as
you are and ordered your lieutenant to
call the GOCs for a meeting to clear the
air. You pretended as you were an umbrella protecting the President. You
made all of them swear that there was
nothing like that. Yet on the new year
eve, you betrayed the same man that
entrusted his life to you. As a matter of reference, can you tell
Nigerians what you did in your 2 years
as head of government? You had no
National Assembly to check up your
excesses, So what did you do or achieve
that will make Nigerians want you to come back and finish? Sir did you build
any road? Please can you show me one hospital
you built for your people? Did you create
a state like your contemporaries? Did
you build any institution that can be
referred as a creation of your
government? How was the economy of Nigeria then that you have shamelessly
claimed that Nigeria's economy is
depreciating? Sir have you forgotten
how you canceled all the mouth
watering developmental projects that
would have grown our economy by today? If you were to sit on a panel to tell
Nigerians what you did what will you
say? That you back dated a law just to
kill Nigerian youths? That you tortured
Journalist? That you took away
Nigerians' freedom to talk? That you selectively locked up all southern
politicians in Prison while you kept their
northern counterparts either in their
house or in your guest house. Can you
tell Nigerians why you locked up
Ojukwu and Awolowo that were not in government? can you tell Nigerians why
Ekweme that went to government
richer and left poor was locked up? Can you explain to Nigerians why you
took away their freedom of speech? Can
you explain why you criticize
government when you decreed a law
that was to lock up any Nigerian that
criticized government? Sir, I have a feeling that you are a hypocrite of the
highest order. IBB must be laughing at
you. Can you honestly tell Nigerians how
qualified you are to rule over them. Yes
you are qualified to rule Almajiris, but
how about the average youth in Nigeria
that is educationally qualified than you,
how do you intend to rule him/her? General Buhari, as an adult of workable
age even if you should be enjoying your
retirement like those that came after
you, what is your educational or trade
qualification? Do you have any? What is your managerial qualification or
skills? Even our amiable General
Abdusalami Abubakar that retired from
the army 15 years ago is happily retired
in his country home, and you that left
the army about 30 years ago is still flying around looking for ways to be
Nigeria's President? Sir on what basis? The present President now a Doctorate
degree holder was less than 26 years
when you were President, Sir is it not
shameful that you expose yourself to
continuous failures in the hands of
people that you once ruled over? All our past Presidents and heads of
governments are elder statesmen with
international Portfolios. Ranging from
General Gowon (Happy Birthday Sir) to
our recent General from the farm, they
are all either United Nations or African Union or Commonwealth Ambassadors,
Sir you are still here receiving abuses
and causes in the political sphere from
people that saw you as a minigod in
those days. Sir can you imagine how and what
General IBB, General Gowon (HBD),
General Abdusalami, General Obasanjo
will regard you as? Imagine what Alhaji
Shehu Shagari will be thinking about
you? Do you still have the guts to look at him in the face? please what did he say
to you last time you were with him at
the state council meeting? Am sure he
said he forgave you because there is
nothing more to do to you. Your
punishments are well placed sir. Tell your advisers that enough is enough,
they cannot keep embarrassing you like
this. Don't be misled by the turn-out
during your declaration, have you not
noticed that it is the same people that
have been turning out for you all the time, and all you end up having is
12million votes out of about over
40million votes?. Votes that are regional
and religious. Sir please hear what a
fellow northerner at the event had to
said; " Nevertheless, I was moved by curiosity
to ask quite a number of them why they
are inclined to his undaunted support? To
my greatest amazement a large number
of them responded similarly thus "MULKI
NA YAN AREWANE, KUMA DOLLE TA KOMA AREWA" ...IN SIMPLE WORDS,
LEADERSHIP AND GOVERNANCE BELONG
TO THE NORTHERNERS AND THEREFORE IT
MUST RETURN THERE". It was a massive
crowd highly dominated by the Hausa
fulani of Nigeria, with a handful number of other tribes... it was a gathering of more regionally
sentimental folks, with a clamor for
northern agenda, and as usual with the
crowd yearning for Buhari's support. It is
highly dominated by hausa fulani tribe
of Nigeria..Another, obviously deceived by my attire, said boldly to me
that..."LOKACI YAYI DA ZAMU
YIKWALLON WAJE DA WANNAN
GWAMNATINARNAN"....BY
INTERPRETATION, IS HIGH TIME WE
SHOULD BOOT OUT THIS GOVERNMENT OF CHRISTIAN DOMINATED. What a pity.. Religion has become the
driving force to the majority of their
supporters. Like a saying goes, "when
motive is wrong, nothing you do that is
right".
Therefore, if the undaunted support given to him is based on these reasons,
as usual Buhari is about to set the
highest record of presidential loss of
election in the continent of Africa. Little
wonder he has little electoral voting
popularity in the Southern part of the country. The majority of Christians
hearing such reasons for his people
support(for Buhari) will rather pocket
their vote and deliver it to a man who
built Almajiri Schools to their fellow
brothers the muslims in the North, yet he is not a muslim." Sir have you seen your support base are
those that don't know why you should
never be elected as President? Several
millions in the north will not vote for
you Sir. They already know who they
will vote for. And by the time we finish exposing your motives to those in the
south, they will prefer to stay at home
than give their votes to "UNCERTAINTY"
Am sure a lot of them enjoy their
freedom, and your motives are clear,
you have intentions of diplomatically Islamizing Nigeria, and that is not
acceptable to all muslims, and you have
never cared. Sir, remember you once told
Muslims to only vote for those that will
uphold Islamic tenets. I don't know if it
is same with that of Boko Haram tenets, but I must tell you sir, Nigerians love
their freedom, and will not risk it to
uncertainty. You have never done as you
say, rather you are full of surprises, who
knows, maybe if given the chance, your
next surprise may be too big a mistake to deal with. Because of these fears, sir
please read what a fellow northerner
said about how their votes will go; "They (northerners) will prefer to vote a
man that gave them the highest number
of Federal Universities newly created,
even though he is not from the North.
They will prefer to cast their vote to the
President that gave them the highest number of political appointed positions,
though he knows he is popularly called
'Arna' (a derogatory way of calling a
Christian, though in actual sense it
means "an infidel"wink. We are collectively beneficiaries of
SURE-P Programme as a nation
irrespective of your region. Pathetically,
the nomenclature attributed to him by El
Rufai as a 'Perpetually unelectable'
seems to have come to stay. If I go by my assessment of the crowd I
saw and their buccal vomits of the
reason for their support, then we are
about to record another presidential
unsuccessful story for the "Hausa/Fulani
people's General". As a General in the Nigerian Army (Once
a soldier always a soldier), Sir I appeal
to you to look around you and take a
few lessons from those that retired
much later than you and also a few that
did before you. Why is it difficult for you to accept your retirement in good faith
Sir? Why can't you groom the younger
generations to do what you could not do. Do I respect General IBB, yes I do with all
my heart. Even when it was not
acceptable to him, he knew when to
draw the blinds. He left and went back
to his quarters. He is still calling the
shots from there, but you will never see IBB embarrass himself in the public,
Never! Even my recent discussion with a
family member, I learnt he advised his
son to suspend his governorship
ambition because he has weighed the
chances to be a tough one. He will never seat and see himself, family or friend
embarrassed in a public event as an
election. Dear General Sir, If you had good and
trust worthy advisers, they would have
told you that political elections is like
gambling, you don’t gamble when it is
clear you will lose. A wise man knows
when to throw in the dice and call off the shots. After three experiences, you
should have known that you do not have
what it takes to win an election because
you lack the qualities of a united
President. If there were provisions for a
northern President, I can assure you sir, your chances would have been very
high. My regards Sir. 1 Kanyi

The ear that must hear will not be as big as traditional hat. If he insist, he's going to be a very big bonus to our dear GEJ.
