2015: Why Buhari Matters By Chido Onumah And Godwin Onyeacholem

Chido Onumah
Columnist: 
Chido Onumah

We must state unequivocally that we have no illusion about the present order. We do not think that the present system can solve the fundamental crisis in the nation or bring succour to our people.

The impoverishment of millions of our country men and women, the wanton abuse of rights, the unmitigated corruption, alienation, internal colonisation and exacerbation of the fault lines of the country, are not issues that the current political order can tackle.

As a first step toward addressing these issues, we recommend a national dialogue of genuine representatives of the people on the future of Nigeria. How to force this all-important national dialogue – whether through a bloody revolution or otherwise – will have to be determined by millions of toiling Nigerians who bear the brunt of the present anachronistic social order.    

Having made this clarification, it is important to note that we have to “play politics” within the parameters of the current bourgeois democratic order. And that is exactly what we intend to do in this piece. This piece was inspired by Joe Igbokwe’s ostrich politics which has found expression in his rejoinders to our articles on what the opposition – the All Progressives Congress (APC), specifically – needs to do to make an impression in 2015.

In his latest rejoinder, Joe Igbokwe preferred to hide his head in the sand and instead of addressing the salient points we raised in our articles, resorted to name-calling as a way out of the political cul-de-sac he has found himself. Clearly, for Igbokwe, insults can get you votes and even win elections. Unfortunately, this approach only goes to show how patently untenable his position is.  He accused us of starting a project of rigging Jonathan back to power “via such flimsy and laughable excuse as the opposition not being ready to wrest power from PDP”. These are Igbokwe’s words not ours.

And to clear any doubts, he averred that, “Those who voted Jonathan in the South-west (in 2011) told us (Igbokwe and others) how Jonathan moved from nowhere to become Deputy Governor, from Deputy Governor to Governor, from Governor to Vice President and from Vice President to become President and concluded that the man has some divine luck going with him. They told us that they want to tap Jonathan’s divine luck. That is how we got to where we are today”.

“Now where is the luck after four years? Where is the divine luck in Nigeria? Can we see it? Can we feel it? Where has this luck led Nigeria to? Igbokwe queried. We shall leave him to answer the question. And if we accept Igbokwe’s thesis about the underlying reasons for Jonathan winning in the South-west, perhaps it is apposite to conclude that if voters in the South-west found justification in 2011 to vote for Jonathan, his antecedents notwithstanding, we are sure they will find reasons to do the same in 2015.  This time around, it may not be a desire to tap into his imaginary divine luck, but to imbibe the virtues of patience.

Of course, we would be glad to see the back of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and Jonathan as far as the governance of Nigeria is concerned. But just taking a stand as Igbokwe implored us to do isn’t enough. I don’t know where Igbokwe got the impression that we imputed that PDP is invincible. We are not in PDP and we don’t intend to be. So it is a waste of time offering advice to a party whose implosion looks imminent. On the contrary, since we have a stake in the APC we feel obligated to prime the party for the struggle ahead because 2015 is its to lose.

According to Igbokwe, “Apart from General Buhari any of these great minds in APC can rule this country better than President Goodluck Jonathan. They are: Nuhu Ribadu, Nasir El’ Rufai, Pat Utomi, Gov Babatunde Fashola, Gov Oshiomhole, Gov Rochas Okorocha, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, Audu Ogbeh, Gov Fayemi, Senator Chris Ngige, Dr. Ogbonnaya Onu, Alhaji Shekarau, to mention a few.

Quite an impressive list! Perhaps, we should add Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, Governor of the State of Osun. It is heartening to know that our good friend, Joe Igbokwe, is actually thinking ahead. However, we have to stop the idle chatter and cut to the chase because there seems to be too much wooly politics going on, and deliberately too we might add. Let’s do a forensic analysis of the list Igbokwe threw up and our addition to it. Governors Fayemi and Aregbesola, both capable candidates for the presidency, will be running for re-election next year so they can’t possibly be in contention for 2015.
It is the same for Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, another capable candidate, who will finish his second term in 2016. We don’t see them abandoning their mandate to chase a position that is at best fluid. As the leader of the largest party in the merger, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is the de facto leader of the APC. It looks like that is the role he wants to play.

Clearly, the South-west holds the ace in the 2015 election. As a geo-political bloc, it is more cohesive than any other zone. But the popular sentiment is that the zone has had its “turn”. And before Joe Igbokwe and his fellow travellers raise their voice in righteous indignation, let’s note that this is what bourgeois politics is all about. So APC has to look toward other zones. Apart from Imo, all the other states in the South-east zone (just like the South-south minus Edo State) are PDP or pro-PDP/Jonathan. The likes of Prof. Pat Utomi, Senator Chris Ngige and Dr. Ogbonnaya Onu will have an uphill task making an impression in the zone much less in other parts of the country.

There is little chance that the APC can make any impact in the North if it picks a presidential candidate outside the three zones in the North. Nasir el Rufai has repeatedly said he is not interested in any elective post. So that leaves us with Gen. Buhari (retd), Nuhu Ribadu, Audu Ogbeh and Alhaji Shekarau. These are viable candidates and reputable men who have made their mark nationally. However, Gen. Buhari stands out simply because he has a cult following in the North (at least the “core” North) which, if properly harnessed, will stymie any assault by the PDP (particularly, a much-weakened and divided PDP) in the zone.

The last man standing is Babatunde Raji Fashola, the popular, young and dynamic governor of Lagos State. So what do we say about a Buhari/Fashola pairing for 2015? That looks like an ideal choice for APC moving forward. Fashola will draw the crowd that APC needs in the South-west while Gen. Buhari will do same in the North. And with the mounting influence of Owelle Rochas Okorocha, the APC can make an inroad in the South-east. Gov. Fashola will complement Gen. Buhari in every area and offer the steady hands and moderating influence of a budding statesman that will give Nigeria the kind of leadership it truly deserves.

The only snag, some would say, is that it is a Muslim/Muslim ticket. But we have travelled this road before and it is nothing new. Agreed that this is not June 12, 1993, but we can draw some parallels between 1993 and now and between the APC and the Social Democratic Party (SDP) from which MKO Abiola and his running mate, Babagana Kingibe, emerged.

This is where we stand. And we are willing to put our “feet, hand, head, heart, eyes into the project” as Joe Igbokwe requested. Joe Igbokwe should be bold enough to give us the specifics of his position.

While he is at it, he would do well not to talk about the need for “internal democracy”. Between us, Joe, we know there is nothing like that in the present order. We can achieve the same thing by acclamation, which itself is an integral part of democracy.

@OC, you are absolutely spot on. Tiny Chido & Co make me LOL...

...with their silly permutations which reminds me of the Shadow Paliamentarians of 2009, that I dubbed Shallow Minds consisting of NdibeO & his runts playing dokita & patients in playpens feeding each other mud-pies like kindergartners pretending to be Speaker & committee chairs. The childish game of these pinpricks did not last 6 months before they quietly faded into obscurity as quickly as SR fanned the flame for them only to pull the plug when Ribadu was a no-show (Buhari is their new Lord). For now, let Chid0, Sonala0, Ndibe0, and other zeroes dream on with their pay-master BuhariO. Soon enough, the weeping General Bruhaha shall wail into his Gari once again at a ripe old age of 83, Kai!.

@Okwuchukwu Ezeanyika - Enter dinosaur masquerade!

A flaming welcome to 'dinosaur masquerade' to the 'pedestrian' square. What makes a seemingly educated person to gloat over an ILLITERATE GENERAL and put all his trusts in him, baffles me. The antiquated handwriting expert, who comes up with the most bizarre postulations, an irredentist of his own, like his protagonist, refers to his bellicose self as a 'masquerade'.

A pity you can't understand the concept of being INDEPENDENT, and people being entitled to be neutral. Never mind, I would rather be 'ebele's apologist' than be like you, an attack rat and apologist of a CRASS ILLITERATE and protagonist of violence, bloodshed and blood soaked 'dogs' and 'baboons'. You know the cause is lost when a seemingly educated man resorts to genuflecting or curtsies before a cow, because of his craving for beef.

Don't worry, the 'pedestrian' square is all yours, dinosaur! Play on!

@OC and Igwe: The homunculus masquerades at the square!

When dwarfish masquerades such as OC and Stanley Igwe, both Ebele's apologists, come to the square to post comments then know the discourse is pedestrian. And so it is apparent that any discussion about the political party that perceptibly would change the country's present governance quagmire is an exercise in futility.

What are you going to change, the deplorable psyche or the retrogressive values of the leaders and the average citizen? Until Nigeria devolves to 5 manageable nations of Biafra, O'dua Republic, Arewa, United Middle Belt, and Niger Delta or 250 nations, whichever the people want, any discussion of the possible POLITICAL LEADERS from now till then is mere polemics and waste of precious time. Thus, let the midget masquerades, OC and Stanley Igwe, return to their den and leave SR for those who have meaningful contributions to make, Okay?`

Frank talk with Chido! - 2

(Contd)
Pius Adesanmi's well constructed piece, which had a similar theme, was better by miles. While Chido tried to water down his previous article, and in the end laundered BUHARI, Pius confronted and took on the vociferous 'cult' like supporters of both Tinubu and Buhari, in a no holds bar FRANK TALK. He spoke as a TRUE INDEPENDENT.

Unless one sees things as an INDEPENDENT, one's views about Nigeria's politics will always be skewed. In my quest to challenge those that worship Tinubu/Buhari, and do not see their wrong, I found myself leaning a little towards President Jonathan, as a better alternative to Tinubu/Buhari, in terms of their credentials. I don't support Jonathan, but view him as a better choice to those two. At least he does not IMPOSE 'Partymen', unlike the other two. Tinubu imposes EVERY functionary.

As for BUHARI, it is not surprising that his BRAIN DID NOT TELL HIM THAT HE COULDN'T WIN AN ELECTION IF HE DID NOT CAMPAIGN IN EVERY REGION.

Frank talk with Chido!

I recognised something was missing from Chido's 'rejoinder' (yet another one) to smoking 'Joe the P.R.O'. Though both are 'Partymen' attacking each other by the Jugular and in public, and seeking to win 'Political' points over the other, but I thought Chido came out like a coward. Instead of standing by his INITIAL CONVERSATION (in his first article) he decided to give in to smoking 'Joe's' conversation, and laundered GENERAL BUHARI, the coup plotter that lacks DEMOCRATIC CREDENTIAL. Sadly, GEN BUHARI is the albatross of the APC (as he was to others before).

Entering Smoking 'Joe's' conversation and naming a COUP PLOTTER and the champion of VIOLENCE, as his potential President speaks VOLUMES! By that singular act, Chido fell from my apparent high rating of him. By his admission of being a 'CARD CARRYING MEMBER' of a Political Party, I now view his criticism of his 'OPPONENTS' as plain politicking or 'POLITICIAN TALK'. Just as I view Smoking 'Joe's' political jibes!

@ Ijeuwa - RE: OC FACE THE ISSUES PLS!

Please take your own advice, and face the issues. In case you forgot the ISSUE and what I considered were my concerns (before you got into my conversation), my beef is not with the APC challenging the PDP or winning, BUT ABOUT BUHARI! And why he is UNELECTABLE! And how with him ON THE TICKET, you must kiss the PDP losing GOODBYE!

You tried to have a 'student and desk' discussion, which I said, pointedly, that was not my conversation. I countered by stating that I stood by my conversation.

Apparently, our 'CONVERSATIONS' are completely different, otherwise, you would not be referring to 'people you're defending'. I did not 'DEFEND' anybody or any Party. I repeated it that I am an INDEPENDENT and a 'NON-CARD CARRYING MEMBER OF NO-PARTY'! And that I cared less who is chosen by any Party, EXCEPT, of course, BUHARI! I still stand by that!

@Ijeuwa - The HYPOCRISY of BUHARI's Apostles!

(Contd)
It is amazing, and also hypocritical, that many of the ILLITERATE IN CHIEF's apostles represent the most CLUELESS, DUMB and IGNORANT people in the country. One can never hold a meaningful or focused discussion with them.

Again, I talked about UNDERAGED VOTERS (that were shown on TV) and VOTERS SMUGGLED in from CHAD/MALI, and you talk about FORENSIC EVIDENCE and JUSTICE SALAMI! Except you were out in MARS and did not see, or you were, of course, BLIND and IGNORANT.

And unless you were CLUELESS, otherwise, you would have known about the 'PHONE CALL LOGS' that led to JUSTICE SALAMI'S REMOVAL. Go on, play the Ostrich, while your bum (IGNORANCE) is exposed!

@Ijeuwa - Typical of BUHARI's Apostles!

As it's typical of his apostles, they ALWAYS MISS THE POINT. I used a SIMPLE English, and yet you TWISTED and confused it. I used, 'UNELECTABLE' (and even capitalised it), and yet you CONFUSE this to mean 'DISQUALIFIED'. How can one engage with a person that lacks UNDERSTANDING?

I posited that BUHARI is 'UNELECTABLE', and gave REASONS for this, yet you ask about the EDO STATE ELECTIONS and OSHIOMOLE'S win? Again can you not see the foolishness of not UNDERSTANDING THE ARGUMENT?

'UNELECTABLE' is described as an ADJECTIVE, which means "(of a political party, candidate, etc) not likely to be elected". I got close to calling you an ILLITERATE, which is typical of many of his apostles!

OC FACE THE ISSUE PLS!

Now I'm sure you know what happened recently in Edo state where the PDP was routed in a free a fair election. In the preceding elections, they were able to rig and keep their loot until Oshiomole came and challenged them and won his victory in court. In the south west states, they 'won' in 2003, didn't they? Now what's happening there? In Katsina the CPC won all the national assembly seats. So how come they lost the governorship? Same was true in many other northern states. Lai Mohammed was right when he said that what happened in 2011 was a cooking of figures. With that declaration the ACN was able to scare them off from the SW after they rigged the presidential elections there.

The funny thing is that the people you're defending know that they're master riggers. See how they've been treating the NGF election? They declared their own results, but Unfortunately they didn't know that the whole exercise was captured on tape!

The most foolish aspect of

The most foolish aspect of Southern Nigeria is thincking that Education is Sense or Wisdom. So every good Nigeria come from the North or must be Musilem even when Boko Haram, is still there killing People. Or should I say that WE have been under SLAVELY for so long that we can no more imagine Freedom. Look at EGYPT.

OC FACE THE ISSUE PLS!

OC your arguments are based on sentiments alone. That Buhari was involved in a coup d'état doesn't disqualify him from contesting an election, if it does INEC wouldn't let him run,get that? Do you remember what OBJ said about Abiola and June 12?

About rigging, the pdp claimed that CPC used underage voters. Now you know they were joking, otherwise, a forensic test would've revealed that clearly. But when the CPC asked for forensic test, they claimed that ballot papers had become a high level national security matter! When Justice Salami insisted on it, he was ILLEGALLY sacked!

Stop deceiving yourself. In a free and fair election Buhari wins. Even the PDP goons know that better than you, which is why they won't allow it. Did you see what happened recently in Edo state?

WHY BIOMETRIC VOTING WHEN OPTION A4 IS THE BEST

WHO DOES NOT KNOW THAT OPTION A4 IS THE BEST AND MORE ECONOMICAL A ROUND PEG IN A ROUND HOLE WHERE IT IS CONFIRMED ONE MAN ONE VOTE, NO MAGOMAGO@JEGAINEC.COM

YOU WANT TO RIP WHERE YOU DID NOT SOW

YOU ARE HERE TALKING FROM BOTH SIDES OF YOUR MOUTH ABOUT THE GREATER SOUTHEAST ADVENTURE OF YOURS HOPE YOU PEOPLE HAVE REGISTERED YOUR POLITICAL PARTY WITH WHICH TO ACTUALIZE THAT DREAM, SO THOSE STRUGGLING TO REGISTER APC SHOULD DO THAT AND OUT OF FOOLISHNESS GIVE IT TO THE SOUTH EAST BECAUSE THEY ARE AS CLUELESS AS OBJ. WHO THOUGHT SHOELESS GEJ WILL NEVER KNOW HOW TO WEAR SHOE,IF THE SOUTH EAST IS INTERESTED IN THEN PRESIDENCY THEY WILL WORK FOR IT AND EARN IT NOT BY YOUR ONLINE GLADIATOR-SHIP @MR SAVAGE SHIOR

RE Nigeria wants good governance

Nigeria wants good governance and I am sure they would not mind who offers them that, whether the person is a muslim, christian or Budhist. Buhari/Fashola ticket will sell and if there is no usual vote rigging by PDP, the vast majority of Nigerians will vote for that ticket. NYou should be thinking more on how to stop PDP rigging; Remember they want to rule for 60 years whether we like it or not! I wonder why the National Assembly is more concerned about local government elections. They should instead work on the Uwais recommendation to make INEC trully independent of the Presidency

RE: The combination of these two great minds is good for Nigeria

The combination of these two great minds is good for Nigeria, and capable of dislodging the wicked and useless PDP. The likes of Oleku and Akpos do not represent the views of SS and SE people. Oleku, or Deri, or Akpos, I believe is the same person changing names- and which 53 suitcases, containing what? Are the "foreign currencies" coins or paper money? How would an Emir who only went for pilgrimage in Mecca carry 53 suitcases back? Even if you are under the influence of "Ogogoro" you should know that there is no way one traveller can carry 53 suitcases, never mind its content. Why are you lots so scared of Buhari- you and your corrupt PDP are in trouble.

@Ijeuwa - Silly example! Mind your comment, while I mind mine!

I am not saying what you are saying, but saying what I am saying! In other words, I maintain what I said. Launder him all you like, he is UNELECTABLE, and time will soon teach you that. His act of taking by FORCE or ARMS (a.k.a ARMED ROBBERY) power from a DEMOCRATICALLY elected Government is his albatross, and makes him UNELECTABLE! He KILLED DEMOCRACY, therefore, he cannot benefit from it! He lived by the gun (DESTROYED DEMOCRACY), he shall 'die' by the gun (ie. DEMOCRACY SHALL ELUDE HIM). He who seeks EQUITY must have done EQUITY!

His various UTTERANCES and CONDUCT also make him UNELECTABLE and UNTRUSTWORTHY! In the elections you referred to, who rigged with UNDERAGED VOTERS and with MALIANS and CHADIANS (who make up the crop of Boko Harams)?

Were his State Governorship candidates equally rigged out too? And was he rigged out in the SW at the 2011 Elections? Kid yourself!

Buhari/Fashola for 2015

Chidi's postulations and choices are the best for now. Let us join hands and salvage this country if we are serious for once. Our twin problems of corruption and lack of policy implementation will be a thing o f the past once we elect Buhari/Fashola in 2015. Those of them that have always reaped from this our present state will raise primordial issues of religion, turn by turn, age etc just to defeat this choice. We shall resist them NOW. Every Nigerian who wants change should support BUHARI/FASHOLA ticket for 2015. God bless you.

chido onumah,you look anaemic,what could be the problem?perhaps lack of ideas like lack of adequate nutrition.can we see the face of your co-traveller,onyeacholem?we spit on your faces.

"There is little chance that the APC can make any impact in the North if it picks a presidential candidate outside the three zones in the North"
...So it is concluded that some Political guru in the north are only interested in supporting a northern muslim candidate...northern elders forum and Awera group only talks about northern agenda and a northern presidential candidate...if the presidential candidate is a christian then he will not be supported.I will like to see APC present a christian Presidential candidate with a Muslim as the vice president candidate from the south in 2015...I will nominate Fashola(governor of lagos state) as the vice presidential candidate...then nominate any christian from the north as the Presidential candidate.
Another option is to have Fashola as the Presidential candidate with Buhari or any other nothern as vice presidential candidate but not via vice

Onumah speculating the wrong horse(s) - 1

From now onwards APC 2015 potential presidential candidate would occupy all the columnists in the country. Yet they will not be able to pin point the actual one the God and gods of Nigeria future is sending through APC.

As the PDP has already been deflated and thereby defeated, it should even be let known that Buhari is no way near the 2015 Presidential candidacy of the APC. Ruling Nigeria of today is far more than the banded names. In short, any candidate from the North of any political party is not even nationally electable until 2039 - 2047.

From 2015, the leadership of Nigeria is not about policing the past wrongs, which Buhari and Ribadu, etc are all about. They have nothing to offer Nigeria about her future which the coming 2015 leadership is generally all about. And coming from the North at this time is their big disadvantage, as no Northerner is nationally electable.

Onumah speculating the wrong horse(s) - 2

As constitutional rotational leadership start from 2015 – 2023 terms, APC 2015 Presidential candidate is coming from the Greater South East (South South and South East) whose turn it is to provide a leader for the country. Wait until the APC is registered and aspirants from the Greater South East (South South and South East) start to come out.

You are rest assured that any of these have the gut, relevant educational qualification and foremost extraordinary leadership quality. In addition to these, from their individual manifestos, you will see that no PDP or any Northern candidate is even half of any of the candidates and their manifestos. This time people are much more circumspect and do not want to be shouting before the whistle.

APC shall be more than wise to narrow the selection of its 2015 Presidential candidate to the pool of aspirants from the Greater South East (South South and South East) when the party is registered and nomination is opened.

RIGGING IS THE PROBLEM, OC!

OC, saying that Buhari was not rigged out but was rather un-electable is like saying that a student who went to write an exam but was refused a desk, writing materials and even what s/he managed to write was rejected is incapable of passing an exam. Haba! In 2003 we know what happened. In 2007 even Yar'adua apologized for the rigging that brought him to power, in 2011 the casualty wasn't only Buhari but also Justice Salami and the case is still going on... Check the facts before you start making assertions!

The morning after...3!

Contd)
The second issue, concerns your statement that, "The impoverishment of millions of our country men and women, the wanton abuse of rights, the unmitigated corruption, alienation, internal colonisation and exacerbation of the fault lines of the country, are not issues that the current political order can tackle".

I simply want to remind you that Nigeria operates a FEDERALISM, and those issues you mentioned above EQUALLY apply to the STATES and LOCAL GOVTS (including the ones that the 'APC' hold sway).

I thought I should clarify this point, as many seem to confuse the issue that this IMPOVERISHMENT COMES FROM ABUJA! The UNDISCERNING will believe so. But those of us that have seen Governments of other Countries operate, and know about FEDERALISM, do not buy that. NO PARTY IN NIGERIA IS EXEMPT FROM BLAME!

@ Oleku, pls let Buhari be!

Since visiting SR I've never read any1 near maligned like Buhari. I wonda y.
He has never been found wanting on corruption and none points at him. The only thing any1, particularly his detractors, says is he's a religious extremist.
To many of the PDP stalwarts, he is real trouble should he becomes president because he has zero-tolerance for corruption and they're likely to be in soup. (remember the Umaru Dikko saga- many of then are just like UD).
The problem of Nigeria isn't corruption bt impunity n we need a leader who'll crush it.
We dnt need ethnoreligious politics now, we need a united front against impunity at the top.
Buhari is the man to put us in line to gr8ness- pls forget what has been said abt him- check his antecedents. Pls.

The morning after...2!

(Contd)
With BUHARI at the helm of 'APC', I should care less. But as an INDEPENDENT observer, I dare to say that the 'APC' (if ever it gets registered) is dead on arrival with him 'at the top'.

Don't kid yourself about the fact, or pretend that he lost previous elections because he was rigged out. No! He lost because he is simply UNELECTABLE! No matter what colour he changes to this time around, like a Chameleon, he is doomed to lose again. He is a baggage!

Look at the 2011 elections, his Party was able to win only 1 Gubernatorial seat. What does that say about him? And he has now further soiled his hands in blood-soaked 'dogs and baboons'!

The morning after...

After the long drawn out epic 'APC' (or ACN) family squabble with your 'Partyman', Smoking 'Joe the P.R.O', I hope you two will now resolve your petty skirmishes, for the sake of your 'Party'.

As an INDEPENDENT (and a non-CARD carrying member of NO PARTY) I would have stayed out of your petty Party fights, except for two issues of concern to me. The first concerns your attempt to launder Gen Buhari.

As an INDEPENDENT, I care less who any PARTY fields. But I have vowed to oppose the coupist whenever his name is mentioned anywhere. He deserves to be in no other place but JAIL FOR DARING TO OVERTHROW A DEMOCRATICALLY ELECTED GOVERNMENT. (Contd)

Chido Onumah, May Your Days Long

Brother Chido, may your days on earth be long for this maaterpiece and others you have contributed in the past.
Just a perfect combination for 2015. So, we would Gen Buhari et al to start kicking and running with his gospel of discipline and antcorruption crusade now!!!!!!!!!!!
