I earnestly pray that Mr Peter Obi is elected in February 2023 to take over from President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday 29 May, 2023. We have had enough of mediocre, visionless, wasteful, prodigal, extravagant, selfish and treasury-looting elected public officers in the last 23 years since the return of civil rule on May 29, 1999.
In Mr. Peter Obi, I have found a quintessential servant-leader, who is the exact opposite of the typical Nigerian politician. The typical Nigerian politician is a rogue, liar, thief, pen-robber, treasury-looter, fraud, murderer, waster, destroyer, law-breaker, mediocre, and the likes. They are fatally selfish, criminally self-serving, stupid, foolish, unproductive, unfruitful, destructive, wasteful, immoral, unpatriotic, shameless, stupid, shamelessly irresponsible, wicked, evil and satanic.
In case you are wondering why I profiled the typical Nigerian politician in the way I did above, I would like to submit to you that only animals in human skin, idiots, psychopathic kleptomaniacs and Satan incarnate could have looted the daylight out of Nigerian Airways, NITEL, NEPA, Oluwa Glass Company Limited, Okitipupa Oil Palm Producing Company Limited, Port Harcourt Refining Company Ltd with combined installed capacity to refine 210,000 barrels of crude oil per day, Warri Refining and Petrochemicals Company Limited, Kaduna Refining and Petrochemicals Company Limited, farm plantations belonging to defunct Northern Region, Western Region and Eastern Region; emasculated the Nigeria Armed Forces, Nigeria Police Force, the Federal Fire Service by looting the funds meant for adequately equipping them; reduced our universities to glorified secondary schools,; made globally identified poor people of tens of millions of Nigerians; turned our hospitals to mere consulting clinics lacking in adequate and well-remunerated personnel and strategic infrastructural facilities; left our roads undeveloped thereby converting to mortuaries to thousands of road travellers yearly; underfunded basic and compulsory education so much that about 18.5 million children do not have access to education in Nigeria, and so on!
Mr. James Ibori, the globally renowned thief approximates the typical Nigerian politician. The fact that the Tinbu, Ati, Orji U. Ka, Ibikunle Amn, Rotimi Amhi, Raji Fasa, Nasir -Ru, Umar Gane, Peter Od*I and the rest of them have not been proven to have looted our commonwealth in the way Mr. James Ibori had been globally proven to be a common thief does not mean that these ones are anything but James Ibori themselves!
At this stage of our nationhood, Nigeria desperately needs a new generation of public sector managers, elected, appointed and careerist, who are innovative, dedicated to duty, patriotic, creative, sincere, and honest to take over the reins of governance from the Locust Generation that made a gargantuan mess of the Nigerian federation in the last 56 years (since Saturday 15 January, 1966 till date). I see in Peter Obi an embodiment of New Nigerian Politician who is diametrically the opposite of the members of the Ruiners Generation.
