I want freedom, not ‘Igbo president’ (3): Politics : Nigerialog.com - Nigeria's Premier Online Forum
Jonathan openly cried out that there was Boko Haram in his government. The amount of hatred and threat of blood (“dog and baboon”) mobilised against Jonathan forced him to run away from Aso Villa after the 2015 general elections. Everybody, including his own party leaders, was in the plot to get rid of him. They were simply implacable. He fled for dear life. Had he resisted he would inevitably be dead by now.
An “Igbo president” will be in office (a misfit in Aso Villa), not in power. I don’t want that sort of Igbo president. The system is rotten and irreparable. I want a president who will grind this system to powder and rebuild it from the foundation. If it will take another Northerner to achieve this, then let’s have another Northern president in 2023. But that is a pipe dream.In the concluding chapter next week, I will discuss what “freedom” means.
