Femi.Adesina, the particular adviser to President Buhari on media and publicity has shared a bit to verify the consolidation of energy.
In accordance with him, ‘those that had been younger (men-about-town) within the 80s will bear in mind the 1979 hit monitor by McFadden & Whitehead, titled Ain’t no stopping us now. The lyrics goes thus: Ain’t no stopping us now! We’re on the transfer! Ain’t no stopping us now! We have the groove!’.
And should you ponder and replicate on the political journey of President Muhammadu Buhari, proper from 2003, when he threw his hat into the ring, until now, there have been spirited makes an attempt to cease him. It received to a head within the construct as much as the 2019 elections, when a pernicious confederacy was put collectively, all to cease Nigeria’s inexorable march to greatness. It failed, resoundingly.
On Wednesday, Might 29, 2019, President Buhari will take oath for second time period in workplace. Tens of millions of excellent Nigerians shall be delirious with pleasure, however another vital minority can be in ‘sifia’ (extreme) pains. Why? Ain’t no stopping Muhammadu Buhari, he is on the transfer! The person will get his groove, and evildoers shall be in bother.
The fight between mild and darkness, evil and good, has been an everlasting one. Some individuals love darkness more than mild, as a result of it’s beneath the quilt of darkness that they thrive, luxuriating of their evil acts: grand larceny, plunder, killings, and others. So, they may by no means love the Mai Gaskiya (the sincere man), and would do all the pieces to cease him, or pull him down.
The efforts to cease Buhari have been strong, pulsating. After a repute of honesty and probity as navy governor, petroleum minister, member of the Supreme Navy Council, his colleagues discovered nobody higher to put on the diadem as navy head of state than the ramrod straight man from Daura. And he started to reset the foundations of Nigeria, knocking sense into the heads of the corrupt and people vulnerable to indiscipline. It was not enterprise as typical.
However the dream run lasted solely 20 months, earlier than they truncated it. The landlords of Nigeria struck, and stopped Buhari. Up in smoke went probity and accountability. Self-discipline flew out via the window. And we went again to a spot worse than sq. one.
The person got here again as a reformed democrat. He sought to be president in 2003, 2007, and 2011. However these in mortal concern of righteousness in excessive locations banded collectively, and stopped him. The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had perfected the artwork of elections manipulation, they usually used it to the hilt.
Nonetheless, in 2015, there ain’t no more stopping Buhari. A large coalition for change was constructed round him, and good Nigerians stood up for the champion. Did he dwell fortunately ever after? Not in your lives! The adversaries went after him. Ran, pursued, and tried to overhaul. All kinds of issues, bodily and religious, had been thrown at him, simply to do away with the person who wouldn’t steal, and never enable individuals to steal.
A debilitating sickness got here. And for many of 2017, the President was receiving medical consideration, each at dwelling and overseas. As a substitute of goodwill and prayers, they had been rejoicing. We have lastly stopped him, they gloated. However did they? Might they? Not if God was nonetheless alive.
Ain’t no stopping Buhari, as in August 2017, he received again his groove. His well being rebounded, and he resumed work absolutely.
However would Pharaoh desist from pursuing Israel? No. He was destined to perish in a watery grave, so he pursued Israel into the ocean. They fashioned what they known as a coalition, vowing that they’d cease Buhari from profitable the 2019 elections. This was after letters had flown round from the grasp letter author, just about commanding the President to dismount from the horse. That letter author thinks he is the owner of Nigeria, as anyone he moved towards by no means survived. He felt he may enthrone and dethrone leaders at will. However the Yoruba individuals say it is the day that the witch kills twins that she stops consuming meat. The letter author bit more than he may chew, and it caught in his throat. He fashioned a political coalition, it collapsed proper in his face. He first adopted a political social gathering to make use of in his bid to unseat the incumbent, then in act of utter confusion, he deserted that new social gathering, and went for candidate of the PDP.
The identical man he had spent the previous 10 years destroying, writing volumes and volumes of verbiage towards, he now tried to promote to Nigerians. Have been we fools?
See the grand conspiracy by those that known as themselves ‘Atikulators.’ They included former presidents, some retired navy prime brass, disgruntled senior civil servants, enterprise individuals, preachers, and the elite, typically. The sluice gates of free funds had been slammed shut, they usually had been sad. As dolorous as King Lear at his worst.
The letter author mobilized the worldwide neighborhood, feeding them with misinformation and disinformation. Fulanization. Islamization, and different creepy concoctions. He was already addressing the PDP candidate as “my incoming President.” Oh, how so very simple to construct castles within the air!
Marabouts, witches, wizards, and false prophets masquerading as pastors, bishops, and archbishops additionally joined the fray. They started to spew falsehood, which they attributed to God. He that sits in Heaven simply laughed at them, and held them in utter derision.
All those that had been on the flawed facet of the legislation joined the conspiracy. Ex-this, ex-that, who had abused their workplaces, and had been being made to reply questions, crept beneath the umbrella. They knew if their man gained, their circumstances would die pure deaths. So, for them, it was a matter of life and loss of life.
They got here with spurious political permutations and calculations. Votes in North-west and North-east can be shared. They might sweep North-central, the place that they had spent the final two years attempting to demonize and de-market Buhari and his political social gathering. South-west would even be shared, after which, they’d win South-east and South-south wholesale. It appeared foolproof on paper, notably whenever you additionally throw in huge vote shopping for, hacking of all of the hackables, and a complicit judiciary as Plan B. They had been already planning methods to promote Nigeria, and inform the poor to go to hell.
However they did not reckon with the endurance of the poor and the downtrodden. They’re individuals who know the place their bread can be buttered, and the place their future happiness lay. Of their tens of millions, they trooped out to vote for the sincere man. They selected mild, as a substitute of darkness. On the finish of all of it, about 4 million votes separated the boys from the boys.
The person left holding the brief finish of the stick went to courtroom, claiming some servers from George Orwell’s sugar sweet mountain, gave him victory. It is inside his democratic rights. Ain’t no stopping Buhari now, he is on the transfer!
In latest weeks, banditry, killings, homicide and mayhem have suffused the size and breadth of the nation. All the things seems orchestrated, choreographed, to realize sure ends. The legislation enforcement businesses are pointing fingers in sure instructions. However Nigerians need them to do more. Pull within the evildoers, and allow them to face the legislation. That’s what President Buhari tells them at every safety council assembly, too. And we’ll get there. Quickly and really quickly, as a result of we have the groove. When the ram runs, its testicles dangle furiously backward and forward. However it doesn’t matter what, the testicles can by no means fall off. Nigeria will stay united, regardless of all machinations of the evil ones.
In that tune by McFadden & Whitehead, you may have these strains:
There’s been so many issues that is held us down,
However now it seems to be like issues are lastly comin’ spherical.
Sure. Issues are coming spherical for Nigeria. We are going to get to the place we’re headed. Our truthful havens, land flowing with milk and honey. The crooked and corrupt will not ever cease us, nor would they rule us once more, and the wealth of Nigeria shall be used for the nice of Nigerians. Ain’t no stopping us now, we’re on the transfer!
