To get to that future, we will have to go through two sets of people. One is the Buharists, a cult of devout followers of the President whose desire for a perpetual Buhari leadership has little to do with the quality of his governance. I will argue that no Buharist, none whatsoever, boasts of either the President’s intelligence or his deployment of it to confront serious national issues. Instead, they exaggerate every mundane insight he has into simple issues and praise his supposed moral integrity because there is almost nothing else that continues to recommend him for the Presidency. It does not bother them that Buhari does not articulate any vision for the Nigerian state neither has he demonstrated that he is driven by a sense of urgency to push his country beyond its state of poverty and disrepair. When he returned from another medical tour in the UK recently and was interviewed, it was frustrating that he was still stuck on the same old song about corruption and jailing of offenders.
