Few Yorubas would deny the fact that they have not toyed with the idea of Vice President Yemi Osinbajo succeeding President Muhammadu Buhari as President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria the way former President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan succeeded his boss President Umaru Musa Yar’Adua. Many Yorubas still support the glaringly incompetent Buhari because of the hope that one day this fantasy might become a reality. I will not be surprised if such thought is behind the reason Osinbajo and his master’s administration still enjoy a muted support from his church. Unfortunately for those who still harbor such thoughts, man propose, God dispose. Buhari is getting healthier everyday as Nigeria is getting unhealthier.

Now that it is confirmed that the “officially” 76-year old Buhari will remain with us for a looooooonnnnngggg time, what next? His incompetence continues to cripple everything. The security that his candidacy promised because of his military background is at an all time low. Even during Nigeria’s civil war, Nigeria never experienced this widespread insecurity. The elites in the Northern part of Nigeria has made Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory, their hometown. Those not so privileged to come to Abuja by air due to the wrecked economy that Buhari’s presidency has engendered and the kidnappers infested roads that his security team has installed, have chosen to go to nearby states that are less insecure. Bandits now have free reign in the new Nigeria that once pursued bandits from other African nations.

My pain is… when will the Nigerians who still support Buhari wake up!!! Are they waiting for their siblings, spouse or children like Leah Sharibu to be kidnapped before saying enough is enough??? These days Buhari and those with his remote control don’t even give Nigerians, Yorubas and Osinbajo the benefit of the doubt. Buhari now travels without sending any notice to the National Assembly delegating power to the professor that can no longer profess. He now presides over meetings with his security chiefs excluding Osinbajo because he himself (Buhari) and his cabal sees Osinbajo as a security threat that is only good for sharing Trader Moni, a program that has been acclaimed as a vote buying gimmick.

The Catholic Church and her clergy in Nigeria who were once antagonistic to the former CAN President, Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor, because of his activist posture to the Buhari administration seems to have waken up from their slumber.  The Catholic Archbishop of Abuja, Cardinal John Onaiyekan recently lamented the continuous illegal migration of young Nigerians abroad despite several reported dangers that they face.

He said, “It is a terrible thing to live in a nation where you are considered unwanted, and because of the difficulty of crossing these boundaries, illegal migration leads to trafficking”. He was speaking about Nigerians who for the hopelessness in the land, risk the danger of a life of uncertainties and maybe servitude or even death abroad. He added. “If you live in a nation where your young people are telling you this, then what kind of nation is that? If I was president of that nation, I will resign,”

But would Buhari resign? Your guess is as good as mine. From the alleged evidence from INEC’s servers that I am sure (if true) have been recorded elsewhere because every online transaction is recorded severally. As a result of the internationally observed widespread irregularities and violence during the last election, I wouldn’t be surprised if Nigeria’s gaged judiciary lived up to their call and be the last hope of the common man. I call on them and everyone who foresee a peaceful, progressive and prosperous Nigeria to do all, to boot out Nigeria’s most incompetent government yet.
