Does Nigeria Need A President? by Ofodirinwa: 9:08pm On May 15
Buhari has been trying his whole life to be president of Nigeria. Upon achieving it, he is largely absent in the eyes of most nigerians. Some say he's sick, some say he's dead, some say it is his way of running things. No matter the reason, it's safe to say that there is next to no 'presidential' presence in Nigeria. There have been countless situations where a president would have (ordinarily) come out to speak. We are so used to knowing Buhari will not do this that we even forget that there are things presidents are supposed to do. The next president that gives a speech will be look at like the second coming of christ.

So do we even need a president? The amount of bloodshed and headache Buhari's ambition came with (electoral violence, coup, endsars, bring back out girls, prison, and arguably boko haram and bandits) has not equated the result. Worst, you would think someone what wanted to be the president this bad would actually do something once there. The man even 'wept' lol

So even if he comes out to speak in times of crisis like a president ordinarily does, is that speech worth the bloodshed and looting needed to create a nigerian president? The violence in Sokoto we are seeing today, happened every single time Buhari lost and election. If he comes to speak against this one, what of the ones that made him who he is? Is it worth it?

But he has instead proven that Nigeria is non-sense and with or without a president it is the exact same type of non-sense. Buhari's 'do nothing' approach is leading me to wonder if Nigeria needs a president. Every 4 years the country is brought to the brink of destruction so that one kin person can become 'president'. The amount spent getting them there, the bloodshed, tribalism, conflict, graft, looting necessary to do this will never equal the result. Even if the person is a 'good leader', what can a president of for a nation of almost 200 million. If the president does 100 projects, can the impact ever be felt by the majority of people? If not, then is it worth the turmoil the title causes?
