There must be an alternative to Buhari and Atiku but if only former Vice President AtikuAbubakar and President Muhammadu Buhari, are our only options in 2019, then that’s a TRAGEDY for the future of Nigeria. As both leaders of the two main political parties in Nigeria , It will be foolhardy for us to forget the racking spoil that the PDP foist on Nigeria. No matter how we try to forget, it’s impossible to forget the insensitivity and impunity of the minions of PDP.
Then to APC , which is actually old PDP wine in a new bottle, is a brutish, less inspiring, transparent and more ominous mammoth than the former. “NIGERIANS THINK” presenting us with the option between Buhari and Atiku is an unsparing Hobson’s choice; it’s like a choice between six and half a dozen, between wrong and wrong. Any election or aberration of these two options would be a dissimilitude without a difference.
If Nigeria must make progress, it must search for a future outside PDP and APC- and outside Buhari,Atiku, and all the familiar old stagers of Nigerian politics.
The question begs, Why is our country’s destiny constantly left in the hands of equanimous, totter, uninspiring, incompetent, and provincial gerontocrats who are clueless to what it takes to govern a modern, multi-ethnic nation?? Nigeria needs and is deserving of leaders that are, transformational, forward-thinking, truly educated, and energetic non-career politician.
