To my President, Muhammadu Buhari, GCFR – Frank Ofili29 views
Truth is bitter sir, but one has to say it nevertheless.
Sometimes it is frustrating continuing to support you Mr. President, and giving you the benefit of the doubt. You continue to, in Naija parlance, fall my hand every now and then. Is it that you don’t have good advisers or you simply don’t care one bit.
Now, here is my point. How do you as father of the nation go partying in Kano with a whole 25 sitting governors at a time 110 of your children (teenage school girls oh!) were taken hostage (en-mass) by terrorists? Should you instead not be in mourning, and in sober reflection that this is happening under your watch?
Should you not worry at the security failure that made that wholesale kidnap possible? Should you not worry that this mass abduction is happening again four years after Chibok? Should you not worry that as the chief security officer of the nation, the abduction is a big slap on your face and that it signifies failure on your part?
Should you not worry that the success of this mass abduction shows that your lieutenants may have been telling you lies that Boko Haram has been “technically” defeated? Should you not worry, sir, that there may, indeed, be Boko Haram sympathizers in your security agencies?
If I may ask sir, must you personally attend the wedding of the children of governors Ganduje and Ajumobi? Couldn’t you have sent goodwill message through a representative?
I remember, sir, when Boko Haram exploded a car bomb that killed almost 100 people in Abuja in 2014 and then President Goodluck Jonathan chose to attend a political rally in the same Kano two days after, you and your party men and women almost strangled him for being insensitive to the mood of the nation. It is sad seeing you, of all people, do exactly the same thing.
I am highly disappointed Mr. President. But I still have faith that Nigeria shall be truly great and, one day, take her place of pride in the comity nations
