The New Atiku Abubakar And His Old Habits by Shawnnn01: 7:10am On Jan 19, 2019
Atiku will sell the NNPC. We know he will. They sold quite a lot the last time. So he didn’t need to swear he would do it. Let his word learn to be his word. Privatization is good. Privatization of inefficient government companies would benefit the public.

When scoundrels sell public assets to their friends and cronies to enrich them they would also claim privatization. NEPA was sold a few years ago. The process was bereft of good faith. The assets fell into incompetent hands whose only qualification was their closeness to power. Rather than improve electricity, these wretched companies have worsened the plight of the public and left everyone with sufficient hopelessness.

man who lives off collecting taxes for government and pocketing his commissions can’t pretend too much about hating entrenched interests. Atiku would have improved credibility if the public sees him as a new convert—sinner struggling for holiness, rather than a blooming Pharisee.

few days ago while swearing that he would sell the NNPC, he was heard saying that there was nothing wrong with his friends becoming rich when he became president. He said his friends would also be entitled to be rich. Those who fear an Atiku presidency fear a return to an ugly past. A past where those who had access to the president had access to money and to the juicy fruits of privatization. I know cronyism still lives today. But we remember a past where the presidency publicly rewarded its friends with public assets in the name of building a new Nigerian economy.

Oby Ezekwesili said that Atiku was her biggest obstacle while she was establishing the Due process office and protocols. In other words, Atiku, contrary to posturing, actually preferred an economic space where opacity and arbitrariness ruled. Atiku has not contradicted Oby Ezekwesili’s revelations. Obasanjo had said similar things about Atiku in the past

No one wants a president who lacks moral fibre in 2019. We may not have seen quite the change we hoped for. But a swift return to business -as-usual will be calamitous. One thing is certain, our population is growing at an alarming rate. We are bedeviled by a hemorrhagic insurgency. We cannot relapse into a state where no one can look up to the top for moral inspiration

We need moral regeneration. Many think that if Buhari rediscovers himself, his old self of 1984, we may sing Uhuru. But we don’t need a president who just can’t champion moral regeneration, who can’t simply make us hope. Atiku has to show that old things have actually passed away. And that his presidency would not enrich his friends at the expense of the masses.

Let's just call a spade by its English name.
