How can you miss it? Three men who think Aso Rock is their father’s property. When I hear Atiku speak in public forum accusing Obasanjo of trying to stop him or imaginary forces after his life or his most recent boast that OBJ cannot stop him in 2007, it reveals the mindset of a delusional politician. And what of iBB (lower case intentional)? Okay, short of calling him moronic- I must say the printing of posters and organizing those fits of think tank should by now be very clear to everyone that is a waste of money. As for Buhari, you will think after losing in the last contest (or getting rigged out) he would have learnt his lesson in politics and that Nigeria is tired of sick, worn out, old dictators masquerading as born again democrats. No he can’t figure it out yet.
Don’t get me wrong: Atiku, iBB and Buhari have their fair share of supporters in
As for iBB, that one is not out rightly delusional – I probably will use the word deranged. What is iBB looking for? Oh, save me the thrash – majority of the thieves in
Buhari’s own greatest undoing is that he basically has no party to run on or run with and he is already your type cast religious bigot candidate. He has been branded and no amount of PR job will remake him for the highest job in the land. He can prepare himself for a life of service in the opposition or just drift into oblivion in his village. But as far as my crystal ball can go, Buhari is a spent man. While IBB and Atiku may stand a chance in the next life, there is hardly any more hated living personality in Nigerian politics than Buhari. He evokes an aura of dislike, dictatorship and bigotry – some people thinks he is the perfect man for the job but more people think he is a walking maniac.
