Political Hypocrisy, The Divine Conspiracy And The Mask To Get To Power - Comr. by deeprinz(m): 10:26pm On Feb 21, 2018

What kind of hypocrite should voters choose as their next leader? The question seems utterly cynical. But, as it is actually much more cynical to pretend that politics can ever be completely sincere. The most dangerous form of political hypocrisy is to claim to have a politics without hypocrisy. Political Hypocrisy is a timely, and timeless activity among Nigeria politicians. we should accept hypocrisy as a fact of politics, but without resigning ourselves to it, let alone cynically embracing it. We should stop trying to eliminate every form of hypocrisy, and we should stop vainly searching for ideally authentic politicians. Instead, we should try to distinguish between harmless and harmful hypocrisies and should worry only about its most damaging varieties. What are the limits of truthfulness in politics? And when, where, and how should we expect our politicians to be honest with us, and about what? In Nigeria, my enemy’s enemy is my friend. That is what is currently the case in Nigeria as regards recent political events, especially within the camp of the ruling APC. People always want to say and write what would please the listeners and readers, rather than say things exactly the way they are. People want to impress those in power with fake support. If President Muhammadu Buhari is to succeed, he needs to caution or do away with people like the diminutive Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir el-Rufai. Whenever anything happens, he is always quick to react, without having a second thought, as if he is the spokesperson. Anytime el-Rufai lends his voice to national issues, it reinforces the belief that there are cabals within Buhari government. And Buhari seems to be helpless as he has been unable to keep these men where they truly belong. this same el-Rufai who struggled to provide reasonable answers as to what happened in Southern Kaduna will always come forward whenever bigger issues surface. This is when he has yet to solve his home-grown problem. In fact, there is no Nigerian leader that el-Rufai has not lambasted. And this is for nothing than to curry favour. And each time, his hypocrisy is always exposed. Just recently he attacked those calling for a restructured Nigeria. This was after he had supported it few years ago recently, Nigerians, especially politicians are suffering from unending capacity for deception. We tell ourselves so much lies, get so used to it and willingly substitute it for the truth. Added to this is our failure and refusal to learn from mistakes. Is el-Rufai not bothered about the silence of the chief initiator of APC, Tinubu? Was it not when Tinubu made the party popular that el-Rufai and other decided to join? We don’t learn from the past and that is politically suicidal. WE ARE WATCHING.
