How would you rate Nigerian leaders with the following:
With the level of loyalty and obedience to the leadership of Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky, Nigeria is seen to be saved from a turmoil that would have sent millions to refugee camps in neighboring countries.
Imagine the level of oppression and tyranny meted on the Leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria, his family and followers, killing, torturing, raping, burning alive, burying in mass graves, demolition of properties and illegal detention, and yet in his absence and incommunicado, they remained obedient and focused on their leader’s non-violent policy.
What would have happened if they acted the other way and decide to die, would Nigeria be the same today? Definitely no, because even the foolish Nigerian leaders that perpetrated the crime against humanity would be seeking shelter abroad after destroying the country with their unpatriotic actions.
This is indeed worthy of commendation, Hail Zakzaky!, Hail Zakzaky! Hail Zakzaky! Because, with all the madness, brutality and incivility displayed by Nigerian government and its Army, members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria have refused to be instigated into violence despite all efforts by the government and its Army to engage them. i wonder how irresponsible a government would be to want to instigate its citizens into violence by all means to satisfy some foreign interests?
What would have Nigeria turned into by now if the followers of Sheikh Zakzaky were not as obedient and loyal to him? Definitely those that claimed Nigeria would become ungovernable would have succeed, their dream would have been fulfilled.
But thanks to Sheikh Zakzaky who has the people at heart and could swallow all atrocities to save their lives and provide them with hope and a better future for their children and their children’s children.
Definitely, this Saint of a man, Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky deserves beyond a standing ovation and a bow form Nigerians. He deserves their loyalty and obedience.
There is no point of comparison between him and the traitors, deceivers and liars called Nigerian leaders because his patriotism, love and care for Nigeria and Nigerians is incomparable.
Nigeria and Nigerians deserve better leadership and God Almighty has pointed at Sheikh Zakzaky for them, if they but knew.
