Re: Tambuwal as PDP’s nightmare scenario
‘It was all too obvious that your previous article [‘APC will be making a mistake with MuslimMuslim ticket’] and the present one were secured on a tight tension and morbid apprehension of a particular candidate. The content therewith was carefully couched with bare intellectual subterfuge to cover them up though. Much as you tried to hide it, the critical mind could just pick it up with ease. We thought public intellectuals, as you chose to have your public identity, should first weigh all the inhibiting factors that held the growth of a nation and thereafter rank them in order of severity. In our case, our bane is all too known and never needing any intellectual debate. However, you rather chose to close your eyes to the obvious singular draw back that has held our development hostage- corruption.
To drive matter further down this cruel deliberate oversight, you played it down as if all the mitigating factors confronting the nation are equal in magnitude and level of destruction to d nation’s growth. Sure, for you, corruption is not too urgent a problem to the nation, like other ills we are grappling with. A public intellectual should not find it difficult to locate the nexus and the unsophisticated link that runs through all other ills - i.e. corruption.
Your choice of words did not fail you either when you proffered the solution and the quality that your hero should possess to save the nationvision. Pray with vision, courage charisma, nondivisive personality, youthfulness that can measure well in dire situation with less attention to the evil of corruption
We are also quite sure you never had enough time to tell d public how you scaled the criteria in proportion and adequacy for your hero as truly enough & sufficient for the nation’s therapy. Well done brother. The people have grown in awareness to know when someone is on a hired job - your last two articles only suggested, most accurately, not only your discomfort with the Buhari candidacy, but your masters’ worst fear as well.’ Mohammed Yakubu by email, email@example.com
