How exactly does the mind of Tinubu supporters work? What is their thought process, really?
Are they supporting Tinubu because they genuinely believe he is mentally and physically sound to preside over Nigeria or they just want to punish the over 200 million of us?
Here is a man whose real name you don’t even know. His academic record, age and ancestry are all shrouded in mystery. 20 years of his life was practically deleted from history. Health-wise, he is not good and you don’t even need a doctor to confirm that. Mentally, he is not in a good place. Signs of cognitive impairment are shown in every of his public outings. In terms of character and integrity, he is doing even worse. The U.S cocaine indictment is still fresh in our memory. He has refused to speak to Nigerian media, not even his own media. All he’s shown the Nigerian people is disdain. Today that he wanted to form Chatham House speaker, small questions that they asked him, he pushed them to his surrogates. The few ones he tried to answer such as the question on oil theft, he was blabbing about theft and the receiver.
You who claim to love Nigeria and Nigerians, you who spent the past 7 years lamenting the walking disaster that is Muhammadu Buhari and all the pains and sorrows and deaths he’s brought us, you want to vote Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu whom you know very well is Buhari Plus and will spend all his years as President in U.K hospital attending to his health. You are willing to take this risk even after witnessing how our lives and businesses were ruined because we elected a sick Buhari who left governance to unelected shadowy figures masquerading as the cabal who used our collective destinies to play Russian roulette. You want to take Nigerians to this very tragic route again???
Quite frankly, you cannot love Nigeria and Nigerians and still support Tinubu to preside over this country after what we’ve suffered and are still suffering under Buhari. It’s simply not possible.
I mean, how can anyone who wish his/her fellow Nigerians well support Tinubu? How?
Let’s even look at Tinubu’s vice Presidential candidate, Kashim Shettima, one of the deadliest politicians this country has ever had the displeasure of producing. Do you guys even know how this man emerged as the governorship candidate of his party to finally become governor? Have you any idea? Have you? The man who won the primary was shot dead, paving the way for Shettima who was next in line. This was a man in whose governorship lodge here in Asokoro, Abuja, Kabiru Sokoto, the boko haram terr0rist who masterminded the Christmas day bombing in a Catholic church in madalla, was captured.
As in, a sitting governor making his own governor’s lodge a safe haven for a terrorist who just finished k!ll!ng dozens of Christians in a church on a Christmas day!
This is the man who will be acting as President should Tinubu emerge top come 2023.
You know all these, yet, you are still supporting Tinubu and you call it politics. How?
How do you want to deliberately make a wrong choice that will have a terrible consequence of existential nature on over 200 million people and still call it mere politics?? People’s lives, their very existence, is mere politics to you?
How do you guys sleep at night?
