The Vice President, Prof Yemi Osibanjo on his Saturday visit to the palace of the Alaafin of Oyo,appealed to tribal sentiments, telling the Yorubas that 2023 presidency is theirs for the taking if they vote Buhari come 2019.
Prof Osibanjo wants the Yorubas to vote for APC, not because of good reasons, but because of selfish reasons.
He cares not that over 20 million Nigerians are now unemployed under the Buhari-led administration and Osibanjo-supervised economy. He does not care that Nigerians find it increasingly difficult to feed or cater to their families because of the fact that Buhari’s incompetence has crumbled the economy and made Nigeria the capital of poverty. He does not care that 13.5 million Nigerian kids are out of school. He does not care that Millions of Nigerian students who are supposed to be in school are sitting at home due to ASUU strike. He does not care that 20,000 Nigerians are presently in their graves due to the inability of the Buhari-led government to secure lives and property.
This shows the VP is clearly not concerned about the incompetence ruining Nigeria’s economy and the welfare of Nigerians but fully focused on his attempt to grab power in 2023. This also shows that the VP has now been corrupted by the nepotism culture that rules Aso Rock. Nepotism, no matter which tribe is benefiting, never brings progress to Nigeria. It is now clear that the VP is asking Nigerians to suffer for 4 extra years of massive job losses, another potential recession, herdsmen killings, dying soldiers in the hands of Boko Haram, and high level of corruption just to be able to contest in 2023.
As you gather whatever little change you have left to try and enjoy this Christmas, remember that in less than two months, you will have an opportunity to do something for yourself, not to fulfill Osinbajo’s own agenda, but to be able to live a better life and to offer your family the same. You will have the chance to make a choice that births a better Nigeria; a country where the interests of all Nigerians matter more than ethnic and personal interests. You know what to do. Merry Christmas.
