Nigeria: Don’t vote for any corrupt political party

The controversies and disputes trailing the various primaries of the ruling People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and the Opposition, Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) have shown the electorate that the difference between the corrupt PDP and the hypocritical ACN can be compared to wolves in the wild and the wolves in sheep clothing in the ranch.

The only political parties we can give the benefit of the doubt are significantly the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) of the indefatigable presidential candidate Major-General Muhammadu Buhari (retd), the financially challenged Labour Party and other political parties led by notable Nigerian patriots from the academia and industry of the intelligentsia.

President Goodluck Jonathan is a puppet of his Machiavellian master, former president Olusegun Obasanjo. Mr. Jonathan has been doing his best to impress his master, thus exposing his shortcomings and showing that he is not worthy of the mandate of the electorate, because the appalling state of insecurity and the brazen impunity of the corrupt public officials in his administration have exposed his double standards and many no longer trust him and he cannot convince them that he is different from the typical desperate Nigerian politician who is corrupt, incompetent and an opportunist without dignity, integrity or nobility just like his unrepentant master, “the Ebora of Owu”, who believes the ends justify the means. And Mr. Jonathan cannot deny his rake-off from the ill-gotten wealth of the kleptomaniacs controlling the corrupt ruling party.

For decades now, Nigerians have been bedeviled by the bad leadership of rogues in military and civilian masquerades. These kleptomaniacs in power constitute the leadership of the corrupt ruling class at all levels and things have become worse since the ruling People’s Democratic Party is a political party took over political power in 1999 to date .The only solution is to reject the notorious ruling party at the forthcoming polls. Don’t vote for any corrupt political party.

Presently, the CPC seems to be the only prepared and ready to rule political party with a determined and tested patriot who can lead the people in the nation building of a New Nigeria in the leadership of Africa among other nations in the 21st century.
Major-General Muhammadu Buhari was a revolutionary military dictator like Jerry Rawlings of Ghana. But the iron hand of dictatorship cannot be wielded in a democratic state where he would be guided by the checks and balances of a democratically elected legislature and where he cannot usurp the statutory duties of the Judiciary of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

Major-General Muhammadu Buhari (retd), the indefatigable presidential candidate of Congress for Progressive Change (CPC).

Since his retirement from the military, Buhari has proved to be an incorruptible and resolute public official during his laudable management of the Petroleum Task Fund, and what is more, his choice of the outspoken Pentecostal minister Pastor Tunde Bakare as his running mate debunked the mischievous rumour of his political detractors and ignorant others that he is an Islamic fundamentalist who does not tolerate the beliefs of non-Muslims.

Both Buhari and Bakare share a common belief to produce an incorruptible leadership for the democratic governance of Nigeria for the common good of the citizens. Therefore I believe that the CPC is the beacon of a new era for the reformation and transformation of Nigeria.

I hereby appeal to all well-meaning citizens of Nigeria and the true friends of the nation to rally round the CPC and all the eligible voters should make it a patriotic obligation to vote en masse for the election of Muhammadu Buhari as the next President of Nigeria.
