The fact that I am hungry and confronted with two options of evil does not make me subscribe to the proverbial lesser of two evils (whatever you definition of evil is) that determines who the lesser is to you.We are like the great German Field Marshall, Rommel who survived, but was seriously wounded by the British attack (Jonathan) only to be confronted by two death options: poison and firing squad.
The poison of Atiku or the firing squad of Buhari…..Rommel chose to drink poison, should he rather have chosen to be shot after a trial of humiliation?
“On July 17, 1944, British aircraft strafed Rommel’s staff car, severely wounding the Field Marshall. He was taken to a hospital and then to his home in Germany to convalesce. Three days later, an assassin’s bomb nearly killed Hitler during a strategy meeting at his headquarters in East Prussia. In the gory reprisals that followed, some suspects implicated Rommel in the plot.
Although he may not have been aware of the attempt on Hitler’s life, his “defeatist” attitude was enough to warrant Hitler’s wrath. The problem for Hitler was how to eliminate Germany’s most popular general without revealing to the German people that he had ordered his death. The solution was to force Rommel to commit suicide and announce that his death was due to his battle wounds.” http://www.eyewitnesstohistory.com/rommel.htm
The fact is that we have a bad coin with two sides; two bad sides of men, desperate for power and are ready to go to any financial length to express that desperation.
We saw the first one in Ekiti and Osun test firing his 2019 strategy, we saw the response of the second in Port Harcourt.
The masses are torn apart, lost in the lust of two rapists.
The first raped us into poverty, for the first eight “rounds” that started in 1999. The second is still raping up, and expects us to pay for his gross underperformance, by piling up debts for our children unborn, he expects us to pay for rape in trillion, the debt for his rape, as he leads us into the growing list of signatories to Chinese imperialism!
Yet both men with their ego sized genitials are too impotent to impregnate Nigeria, with development.
Their lust for power at any and every cost even at the cost of reducing people to dogs and baboon, and devaluing our blood as worthless, makes the point.
One has made the dog and baboon point in the Benue valley of blood, devaluing rule of law far below his definitions of national security and interest and the other by stealing our common wealth!
When the coin is flipped in 2019, whatever side it lands, there is only one winner, those who say they are born to rule, are those who rule to born, born their own kind!
Atiku and Buhari are no options!
