What’s a WAEC cer­tifi­cate got to do with it?

Sunday Trust - - VIEWPOINT - El­nathan John

for forg­ing her cer­tifi­cate and not pros­e­cute her. Who al­lowed her safe pas­sage back to the UK. I love you, WAEC cer­tifi­cate or no WAEC cer­tifi­cate.

I see that the Kaduna man has suc­ceeded in re­leas­ing that memo where you two dis­cussed the steps he should take to deal with Shehu Sani and he has made the party go back on its de­ci­sion to have Sani as the Kaduna Cen­tral sen­a­to­rial can­di­date. It might be good to find out if the guy has some­thing on the party chair­man to make him do a u-turn, just so that if he be­comes a prob­lem to us in the fu­ture, we also know what to do. We just need to be care­ful the next time we dis­cuss a se­cret with him be­cause of the way his mouth leaks. Once he feels a lit­tle an­noyed he just throws things we have talked about in se­cret in pub­lic. One day you will tell him se­crets about your mar­riage and find it in a memo star­ing at you in traf­fic.

Aha, be­fore I for­get, I saw that Gan­duje was able to pull out chil­dren from school, make them hold plac­ards in his de­fence as the jour­nal­ist who re­leased those videos tes­ti­fied be­fore the Kano House of As­sem­bly. I think that is re­mark­able. We might need to ask him to bor­row us those chil­dren when we be­gin our own cam­paigns. Also how does he do it, con­vinc­ing chil­dren to de­fend him in pub­lic with plac­ards that state that they will still elect him for an­other four years in spite of how many videos are re­leased? You know how stub­born chil­dren nowa­days are. We need to ask him what the se­cret to mak­ing chil­dren com­ply is. We can ask him to write a lit­tle book which we can launch in Abuja, to the glory of God and for the ben­e­fit of mankind on how to make chil­dren obe­di­ent to their el­ders when it mat­ters the most. I mean of course the chil­dren can’t vote, but it mat­ters that they sup­port him. (Or can they vote?)

Can I sug­gest some­thing? I think if Atiku’s peo­ple pres­sure you too much into do­ing a de­bate, which I know you can­not do, you can get out of it by telling them you want to meet in neu­tral ter­ri­tory, like say, the US. If he can­not get a visa that is not your prob­lem. Also I think we should pray that all th­ese other can­di­dates never be­come sen­si­ble and form a use­ful coali­tion to sup­port one can­di­date who has any chance of chal­leng­ing you. Let us sup­port them all in their hus­tle be­cause you know the more you split the votes of those who won’t vote for you, the bet­ter our chances.

Ps. Can we re­lease Zakzaky? And at least al­low him to live a nor­mal life with the re­main­ing mem­bers of his fam­ily we haven’t shot dead? That would be re­ally nice dear. Let’s do it be­fore the elec­tions. Him and Leah Sharibu. It will be a ge­nius move.

Yours now and un­til 2023
