Do we assume that Buhari has lost Nigeria or that Nigeria has moved ahead of him. I have never seen anything like this. I mean, the Attorney General of the FEDERATION, the other day, addressed press men in Hausa language. But that briefing was not a casual snake swallowing naira, or one man holding 50 debit cards, but this was the arrest of Nnamdi Kanu. In other words, he knew the briefing would be massively distributed. But he decided to speak in a tribal language which is not a lingua franca.
As everyone remains flummoxed how Nigeria was able to arrest Kanu when we have not challenged bandits, killer herdsmen, unknown gunmen, etc with the same alacrity, the rally today in Lagos adds a new dimension. Then, I ask: what is going on with Nigeria?
Who can redirect Nigeria? I had expected Prof Osinbajo to be the voice of reason but he seems totally disintermediated. Fractures are building that EVERYONE is claiming to be a victim. Whenever that happens, bad things usually follow. Why is Nigeria offending everyone at the same time?
As they say, if you sin against God, you have a chance. But if you sin against Satan, you are gone. Mr. Buhari, you need to rise up and do your job. You must Sir with all due respect.
Hausa Language is now the official language in Nigeria. What is the sense of using Hausa Language to announce the arrest of Nnamdi Kanu. Why didn’t Yoruba and Igbo speakers also enjoy the opportunity of hearing the arrest in their languages. Malami is just a compound fool! pic.twitter.com/d7gYBUlx6e
