Jonah, depart­ment of Physics, Fed­eral Univer­sity of Tech­nol­ogy, minna, niger state: The ob­ses­sion by the Muham­madu Buhari-led All Pro­gres­sives Congress gov­ern­ment about draw­ing par­al­lels with the past Good­luck Jonathan gov­ern­ment smacks of ab­ject de­featism; al­most three years on, this APC gov­ern­ment still gets a kick by look­ing over its shoul­der and point­ing fin­gers at a “cor­rupt” past PDP gov­ern­ment.

Ap­par­ently, so it would seem, in or­der to draw from the Chi­bok-es­que global well­spring of sym­pa­thy and sup­port, the Dapchi school­girls’ ab­duc­tion hap­pened and the Buhari gov­ern­ment raised sus­pi­cion by em­pha­sis­ing, quite un­nec­es­sar­ily, how pos­i­tively re­spon­sive it was to “deal” with the Dapchi de­ba­cle even in the midst of a gross wed­ding show in Kano. Slightly more than a cou­ple of weeks af­ter ab­duc­tion, this “car­ing” APC gov­ern­ment “se­cured the re­lease” of the Dapchi girls in con­trast to the Jonathan’s dilly-dally over the Chi­bok girls de­ba­cle. Such life-and-death, Rus­sian roulette staged par­al­lel­ism just to colour Jonathan bad is child­ish at best.
