Why they are against Aisha Abubakar

Daily Trust - - OPINION -

The fear of peo­ple like Aisha is that their ad­vent would clearly put the dag­gers to the jugu­lars of the mon­sters and their heinous in­ven­tions. Be­cause of the no­bil­ity of her lin­eage, the so­phis­ti­ca­tion of her ed­u­ca­tion and dis­ci­pline of her char­ac­ter, they fear the end is nigh of their dirty and ra­pa­cious ad­ven­ture in the state. Un­for­tu­nately, some of our youths, in­doc­tri­nated with the dirt and stained with the murky wa­ters of il­log­i­cal amorous be­hav­ior to the point of no re­turn, they are now be­ing used as pawns in or­ga­niz­ing protests against the choice of Aisha and any­body that rep­re­sents the real, pos­i­tive change. They are shaken to the mar­rows of their bones know­ing that if Aisha suc­ceeds, their im­plants in the polity from lo­cal gov­ern­ment coun­cils to the na­tional as­sem­bly pup­pets would not stand the test of time. Their cas­tles build of sand would cer­tainly soon crum­ble as packs of cards.

All discerning arm and pa­tri­otic cit­i­zens of Sokoto un­equiv­o­cally stand by Aisha and for those in­doc­tri­nated pup­pets, the wasted youths, shame on you for fol­low­ing blindly, those that only care for them­selves and their fam­i­lies while throw­ing crumbs at you. To our ami­able Gover­nor, we ad­vise you to clip the wings of th­ese hawks and ma­raud­ers who are bent in either coopt­ing you into their shame­less genre of as­so­ci­a­tion or in un­der­min­ing your author­ity as the chief ex­ec­u­tive of the state on whose desk the bulk stops. You re­cently demon­strated your prow­ess by pay­ing hun­dreds of mil­lions to our help­less stu­dents abroad who were left roam­ing the streets of Europe and Asia by the regime of one who car­ries him­self as an em­peror. While the em­peror pro­vided a pala­tial abode for his chil­dren in cen­tral Lon­don, the rest of our stu­dents had re­sorted to clean­ing toi­lets and work­ing in res­tau­rants in east Lon­don just to sur­vive due to none pay­ment of their schol­ar­ship al­lowances. You can do more by vis­it­ing the white ele­phant ly­ing co­matose at Arkilla in the name of an In­de­pen­dent Power Project, IPP. Not too far from there, there is the aban­doned hous­ing project at gi­dan man Ada that has only suc­ceeded in felling our shel­ter belts and ex­pos­ing our un­der­belly to the sand storms of the Sa­hara desert. Sir, go fur­ther east­wards to the Us­man Faruk Sec­re­tar­iat and un­cover by your­self the gi­gan­tic fraud cov­ered by the walls of that great sec­re­tar­iat. Bil­lions have ex­changed hands and all you will see there is a huge bobby trap lit­tered with mines aimed at your gov­ern­ment. Don’t be amused by their holier than thou pas­ture to­wards your per­son. The truth is that they never wanted you there in the first place; they had their anointed, but God chose you. If you get car­ried away with their pre­ten­tious and ar­ti­fi­cial, they will push you to the abyss. It is com­mon knowl­edge that they have since ‘planted’ a mole to re­cap­ture the crown even­tu­ally at the ap­pro­pri­ate time. The way they hate Aisha is ditto to your Excellency. Noth­ing can be far­ther from the truth. Ab­dul­lahi Aminu Atiku, Ko­far Atiku, Sokoto
