There must be a strong rea­son why the Pres­i­dency and those egging Jonathan on are hes­i­tant in be­ing def­i­nite about 2015. Where there is no sin­cer­ity of pur­pose, there will be strife and ran­cour. Are elec­tions not de­cided at the polls? What is wrong with us as a people? Are we sin­cere in build­ing a united and vir­ile na­tion? Who is de­ceiv­ing who? There is no al­ter­na­tive to a sound po­lit­i­cal ide­ol­ogy, which this coun­try lacks.

2015: Will he (or will he not) run?

gov­erns for Adamawa, Yobe and Borno states is laugh­able. Apart from it be­ing un­called for, the rea­sons he ad­duced for his po­si­tion, namely that the elected gov­er­nors were in­com­pe­tent and had been un­able to stop in­sur­gency in their ar­eas, equally ap­ply to Pres­i­dent Jonathan’s han­dling of the na­tion’s se­cu­rity chal­lenges. While among the mil­i­tary they are com­plain­ing of lack of equip­ment, lo­gis­tics and poor wel­fare, people like Clark are try­ing to di­vert at­ten­tion by whip­ping up emo­tions and ap­peal­ing to base sen­ti­ments. AB­DUL­LAHI Kabir, Azare, Bauchi State, +2348035686636 de­spite the Pres­i­dent’s jet­ti­son­ing and re­buk­ing of it, to say noth­ing of the dis­tanc­ing from it by other se­cu­rity agencies, then that is a pos­ture of an of­fi­cer out for a show­down for rea­sons not an­chored on na­tional se­cu­rity. Could he have be­come sus­pi­cious that one re­tired army colonel could be in line to take over his job? Dangiwa should be wary of over­heat­ing the most crit­i­cal as­pect of the polity- the se­cu­rity. AH­MAD Ti­jani, Suleja, Niger State, +2348036062118
