Let me share with you another views expressed by different patriots in response to the primary piece printed final week.
Thanks sir for this glorious piece. For me South-East shouldn’t be denied the chance to rule Nigeria. Peter Obi that I do know has all it takes to rescue Nigeria from the current calamitous scenario the nation finds itself because of unhealthy governance.
Huge Sam, I disagree with the way in which you painted Tinubu as the person who raised your senior colleague within the authorized career and a Professor of legislation who I do know cuts his political administration expertise whereas working with Prince Bola Ajibola, SAN, as Particular Assistant to the Minister of Justice as he was then. Professor Osinbajo, SAN, labored with Bola Tinubu as Commissioner for Justice and Legal professional-Basic in Lagos State bringing his wealth of expertise to the job. He already knew what he needed to do with that workplace on his appointment and by no means took the administration of justice expertise in Lagos State from Tinubu who just isn’t a authorized thoughts, anyway. I hate the notion that if I work below your management, you’ve gotten develop into my boss, as we work collectively as a staff and never as an apprentice. I additionally wish to debunk the insinuation that he made Osinbajo to develop into Vice-President to Buhari, from all of the accounts that I’ve learn, this was removed from the reality.
On the difficulty of zoning, I don’t see it the way in which you noticed it. I strongly imagine that zoning won’t ever assist the course of 1 Nigeria as we’re defining it. Zoning will do extra hurt than the great all of us lengthy for. If we don’t cease this subject of zoning now, it is going to develop into an even bigger downside within the close to future for us to deal with. We declare to be training democracy however we’re doing simply the alternative. If PDP fields a South-East candidate for the approaching election and Nigerian electorates reject him and vote for an APC candidate who just isn’t from South-East, what occurs thereafter. If a South-East candidate wins, both as a member of APC or PDP, what occurs after his eight yr tenure, the place will the subsequent President come from? It should get to some extent in our nation when Ilaje individuals in Ondo State will demand that it’s their flip to supply Nigeria’s president. Our concern in the present day must be to have a pan Nigerian president from anyplace in Nigeria that may see Nigeria as his constituency and never essentially the place or which area he belongs since we aren’t able to decentralize our governance in such a means that the middle will not be engaging for anybody to be nursing his life ambition to be there.
I learn this piece with rapt consideration, and I felt the author had accomplished political justice to some political voids on this nation’s historical past, given his place on the South-South divide. As well as, he corrected some incorrect assumptions about Comrade Omoyele Sowore’s means to rule this nation, in distinction to some who ask what place Sowore has held within the Nigerian authorities. Howbeit, I encourage to vary with among the conclusions, which look like a degree of discouraging a pacesetter who has been constructing ambition and in addition human on the similar time, and when the time involves make his ambition life like, a follower whom he has constructed tries to obstacle him by displaying curiosity in the identical ambition. Humanly talking sir, would you be happy if any of your skilled attorneys confirmed curiosity ready you wish to run for on the similar time, say, NBA president, in your chamber?

Who’s the very best to take the mantle of management after Buhari? I could also be unsuitable to be categorical however out of many choices, I’ll take into account Omoyele Sowore, at this level in Nigeria, there’s a want for complete paradigm shift of governance, particularly the one which considers the common legislation of human rights and the rule of legislation. Sowore appears to be in tune with this than the remainder. Solely an surroundings with good justice system breeds sufficient safety and financial prosperity.
Confidence Emmanuel Owosanni
Realized Silk Sir, I like the truth that you invoked what I name “The Swiss instinct” coupled with a excessive charge of unpredictability in demystifying/canvassing the difficulty of selection candidacy! You’re essential with participating euphemistic phrases in order to keep away from any type of surfaced derogatory comment acquired my most consideration to re-read this piece. I’m wowed! God sparing your soul, I’ll make you a particular adviser to the…on… after I develop into the pinnacle honcho of this nice nation.

If we’re to use the PDP zoning association, mechanically it’s the flip of the North to rule below PDP, sentiment and emotion apart, in 16 years of PDP in energy the North solely dominated for two years why the south 14 years, it’s naturally honest for PDP to stick to their zoning association by zoning it to the North for fairness and equity. Buhari just isn’t a product of PDP.
Profound perception. However my cash is on Wike as a radical sport changer. If he will get there, I imagine he has the braveness to demand and get true federalism, overhaul and alter the evil 1999 Structure and provides again the assets of every State again to them. We want somebody daring and audacious right now in our historical past.
Good morning my mentor and really senior. I’ve mentioned it in several platforms and locations that if we want a working Nigeria that each one her residents will probably be happy with then H.E. Peter Obi nonetheless stays the very best candidate and we’re all conscious of this truth. I simply suppose we must always take our destinies in our palms by doing every thing humanly attainable to retire these units of financial and political vampires. God assist Nigeria.”
I’m nicely conscious of the brewing controversy regarding the eligibility or in any other case of the previous President, His Excellency Dr. Goodluck Jonathan and the case of Dr. Kingsely Moghalu however since neither of them has indicated their pursuits overtly, it’s best for now, to restrict the discourse to those that have made open declarations. Now, presidential elections shouldn’t be about people however slightly programmes, insurance policies and the manifesto of the platform upon which the candidates search to run for election.
The case with Nigeria is so distinctive that not one of the political events could be recognized with any particular ideology past capturing energy for the sake of it. The legacy that Mr. Peter Obi, Comrade Omoyele Sowore and Professor Yemi Osinbajo will depart for our nation is to conduct their campaigns on the idea of sound ideologies, documented programmes and enduring insurance policies that may translate to speedy growth for our nation and for all our individuals. That is my perspective for 2023.
