Buhari needs time

Buhari-okSir: Although PDP did an almost irreparable damage to the economy through prodigality and declivity in nobility, Buhari and his deputy have the integrity to mitigate the destruction but must be given time to do this. Nigerians must trade in a Greece-like collapsed future with an ephemeral life of hardship in the present. Eleven months trajectory cannot do the magic even though magic is now a national anthem.

The saboteurs cannot hold Nigeria down for long. This fuel conundrum is going to become history with honesty of leadership and the forex palaver would ease out ultimately.

Nigeria cannot have any better deal than with a president who will not steal and will not allow his lieutenants to steal. One more year of such sanity should translate into a quantum gain insulating the economy from the vagaries of oil distortions.

President Jonathan willingly handed over power knowing that the fundamentals of the economy have been irretrievably assailed and any attempt to refuse to hand over would provoke a damning outrage that would lead to a self inflicted abnegation for him. At least he cannot be denied the comfort of Caesar fiddling at the conflagration of Rome.

Nigerians must be circumspect enough not to play into the hands of PDP and fifth columnists using the media to discredit the painstaking efforts of the duo of Buhari and Osinbajo even as the economic parameters are being atrophied on daily basis.

Merits of devaluation in an import dependent economy is not yet advanced beyond the Breton wood neo-colonialist stereotypes and the President must not sacrifice the welfare of the majority navigating an already devalued currency on the altar of elitist populism.

As Nigerians are pushing through unwarranted pain and depravation, the opposition party at the root of all these is closing ranks to stage a comeback with the same indicted political outlook.

Nigerians must choose between ephemeral pains being attenuated with integrity and a mortgaged future being designed by political undertakers.

    Wailers will not read this to gain knowledge. Rather, they will resort to insulting the president, while those that have put them in penury will be smiling to the bank.

    I can’t agree more with the author of this thought provoking article. Nigerian political clime is clouded with hypocrisy, elitism, opportunism, ignorance and religiosity. I respect PMB for his vision and mission. He seems unperturbed by the hypocrisy of these children of corruption.
