We are eternally grateful to God for the species of politicians you find in Nigeria. They come in various shapes, shades, sizes and figures. Very fascinating. There is no other place in the whole wide world where you can find such a perfect collection of political characters.
The ways they respond to different situations and issues are both amazing and amusing. It is as far as their intent and greed can carry them. The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is the most attractive home to these funny characters–the self-acclaimed largest party in the Black World. The party that is enviously nurturing an implosion with utmost carelessness.
The party is itself clearly the worst thing that ever happened to Nigeria. It has put itself out of control. It is now PDP versus the rest of us. We will help it to implode, because it seriously needs to. That is why we need to pray for them. It is our duty to graciously see them through. And successfully too.
The PDP is everything that is wrong with this nation, the constituents of this evil cabal are numerous. They consist of drug lords, criminals of the highest degrees, murderers, thieves, army generals who have broken all records ever set for embezzling of public funds and worst of all, ex-convicts. They labour hard to carry us along with them. They are surprised and perplexed when we refuse to be stupid, when we resist them. When we don’t see things the way they see it, they wonder aloud.
That is why they propose all sorts of awkward proposals to realize their dreams and to justify their actions and inactions. They make such reckless and rash utterances. We too wonder aloud in return. Are these species part of us? We have our serious doubts.
When you see them, you know them. When they talk, you identify them. There is no mistake, you can’t miss it. They are long on words. They deliberately pick their words. But short and inadequate on action. Great tragedy!
Listen to them speak. Very trivial, superficial, empty and vague. Directionless and pointless. You cannot trust them, you can’t rely on them and you can’t even pin them down because they don’t discuss issues. They are petty. They strive to convince us. But they end up more confused, while we are clear in our minds. That is why they can’t make any appreciable impact on us. Our minds are cast in stone.
Members of this party are meant for the dustbin of history, they are crude and cruel, they are deadly and self-centred. They have no viable alternative to selfishness. It is self or nothing! They are perpetual and chronic pretenders. For them, life begins and ends with self. That is their ultimate belief and they are dead serious. Anything that stands between them must be crushed.
They are insulting us. We are not as daft as they think. They are working at cross-purposes. We are poles apart. They are separately pulling down the house they jointly built. By the time the dust settles, which will not be too far from now, the party’s fragile umbrella will be in shreds. It will be beyond repairs. Then we will sit back and clap willingly for them. For helping us pull down the monster tormenting us these past fourteen years.
That is why we can longer hold back the prayers to ourselves. That will be selfish and inhuman. We don’t want to be like them. We are distinctly different from that terrible pack labelled the political class. We have time for prayers. They don’t. It is insane for them to pray. But we will continue to fast and pray for them.
It is better to pray for this monster called PDP, before we are consumed. They need our prayers so that they will all alone carry their cans of worms. The earlier we agree to pray for them, the better for us, and the worse for them. The more reason why we must pray for them.
Without our fervent prayers, they cannot go far in ruining themselves. They need us. We must not fail them. Forget that they have been failing us all these years. We must not repay them in their own coin, we have to be considerate. We should urge them on with prayers to see the task of destruction accomplished. Let us intensify our prayers. That they will eternally turn deaf ears to themselves. That they will never see reasons to be reasonable. That they will never see eye-to-eye until disintegration comes. That they will never ever agree to listen.
Pray hard, Nigerians. Endeavour to pray. This is the only sacrifice we can make at this critical period of our life as a nation. Pray for the PDP, people, pray!
