Buhari may not redeem Nigeria
SIR: Why are Nigerian rulers, President Buhari inclusive, the Senate and the House of Representatives dodging the question of how Nigeria arrived at a point where the Boko Haram community that started as a peaceful community is now a terrorist group?
When a people are dodging the truth, only to be covering up with propaganda, will God side with them? Hence, I have never doubted the prophecy of Orunmila, that war will never end Boko Haram. Boko Haram is affecting Buhari, psychologically. Note how he has been running around since the second day of his installation till now seeking international assistance against Boko Haram.
Was it the international community that foisted politicisation of religion on Nigeria, or fanatical politicians who must spend public funds on religious festivals and Christo-Islamic pilgrimages? Fanatical Christian and Muslim politicians want to protect their caliphate, emirate, archdiocesan and diocesan hegemonies. They foist religious terrorism on Nigeria.
Why is it that GMB who is a Nigerian and has been living in Nigeria all his life has not been able to assemble his presidential cabinet of ministers, more than two months after his installation as the President? Is he not traumatised by Boko Haram?
He had more than a month after his election to put his acts together. What happened? His thoughts were focused on Boko Haram and money for pilgrimage-makers.
