By this time tomorrow , the APC would have already voted for their presidential candidate to take on The very incompetent President Goodluck Jonathan . For Nigeria’s sake, I hope it is General Buhari and I will try to explain why I chose him over the very competent Atiku. Let’s look at it from a different perspective. For example, in an organisation, managers confronted with problems within an organisation always research to find the very core reason behind a certain issue they face. Let’s say they find out that a certain process is built upon problematic sub processes. You don’t expect any good manager to ignore that faulty process and continue on a path as it is to try to achieve their organizational goals. No, they redesign the entire process from the bottom and they move up. Which makes sense if their main aim is to maximize the value of their organization. Same goes for Nigeria.
This country is built on corruption on every level in every institution, both public and private sectors , our military and security divisions, the justice department , every political position from local government Councillors to as high as the post of the president. As much as I admire Atiku’s campaign trail, it’s not the most ideal strategy to be adopted because you can’t continue building up a country when it’s foundation is rotten. Whatever you build upon it is bound to fall off because it can’t hold for long. For that I say Buhari is our man. A whole new foundation needs to be laid on with some key factors like transparency , integrity , anti-corruption , accountability and discipline. This will then pave a way to the effective development of Nigeria as a nation. People are asking whether Buhari is capable of leading Nigeria to where it should be, I say we’re not even the slightest bit close to reaching our potential, we haven’t even started and we don’t have a clue as to where we should to start from. We’re literally stuck as a nation. General Buhari is the only true presidential candidate proven to be incorruptible, a man with no tolerance for fundamentalism , very disciplined and educated enough to lead Nigeria to its full potential. Do not cast your votes based on your religious or ethnic sentiments because when it comes to electing the right person, emotional politics proves to be the one thing that keeps Nigeria down as a tribalistic nation. It’s our responsibility to vote wisely because at the end of the day, the development of Nigeria will not only benefit one person or one geopolitical region but Nigeria and Nigerians altogether.
