It is not disputable that political parties have certain individual politicians in them that add value and prestige to them. Such politicians are seen generally as the pillars of such political parties that keep it standing. To clarify this point we could make reference to what happened to PDP when most of its stalwarts dumped the party prior to the 2015 elections. We all witnessed how former President Olusegun Obasanjo kept away from the PDP. The party virtually became empty and gave up.
This also attracted a lot of other people away from the PDP some of who remained neutral and others joined the APC. By joining the APC, the prestige and dignity of the party was raised to a certain extent. The former Vice President Atiku Abubakar and Waziri of Adamawa was among those who were celebrated for joining the APC and giving it hope and dignity in the eyes of the public.
Just last week the APC was faced with the same cancer when a strong pillar of the party dumped it in protest against how it had failed the public and engaged Nigerians in untold hardship and hopelessness.
Alhaji Atiku Abubakar was bold enough to protest against the focuslessness and hopelessness of the APC which has no agenda in place that supersedes serious crimes against humanity, under-development, inflation, complex insecurity and religious fanaticism.
Although for political reasons people might give a lot of meanings to the action of the former vice President but what he said about deceiving Nigerians is certainly true, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.
The Kaduna state Governor Nasir el-Rufai who was brought to limelight by Atiku but later betrayed him as usual was among the first people to respond to the action of the former VP. He claimed that Atiku’s action cannot threaten the chances of President Buhari’s reelection come 2019.
There is nothing surprising about that anyway because he relies totally on President Buhari in achieving his political scorecards for now before he will finally betray him as he did to others in the past.
He is only a cheap beneficiary of the blind support the party got in the name of supporting Buhari alone and whosoever is with Buhari. But everything is going to change because the people are on their way dumping Buhari and his true color will come to bare.
Then the public will come to understand how El-Rufai betrayed even the IMN he is now fighting against and as he embraces the same Wahhabi/Salafis that voted against him in 2015. They printed pictures of him shaking hands with Sheikh Zakzaky when he visited him to condole him for the death of the first set of his three children killed by the Nigerian Army calling on their followers not to vote for him that he was Shiite. They are the same people around him today because they share the same objective of eliminating the Shiites.
He betrayed Atiku in the past, he betrayed former President Olusegun Obasanjo who described him as a pathological liar and will most certainly betray President Buhari when the time comes.
He is just like the leaders in the north who use the name of Sir Ahmadu Bello Sardauna of Sokoto any time they want to deceive the masses.
It has become such that APC in northern Nigeria is now similar to belonging to Wahhabism/Salafism. Its leaders are at war with all other religious faiths within and outside Islam. They cannot tolerate other views or religious schools of thought.
The APC regime had attacked and caused the forced disappearance of about 127 followers of the Tijjaniyya Sufi order at the Sheikh Ainoma Gaidam Islamic Center amongst who are 80 memorizers of the holy Quran. Their crime is clearly simply because they belonged to the Tijjaniyya Order.
The APC regime is even fighting against the commemoration and celebration of the birthday of Prophet Muhammad simply because those who practice it are not of the Wahhabi School of Thought.
To make it clearer to those who are not Muslims, the APC is acting with fanaticism by supporting the idea of a state religion like a Catholic in power using his authority to fight against Anglicans and others. That is exactly what APC is doing.
It is in the same spirit that it has murdered over 1000 citizens for belonging to the minority Shia school of thought under the Islamic Movement in Nigeria IMN, demolished their worship centers and jailed their leader Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky.
The APC regime continues in the way of crises spreading all sorts of lies using the hungry religious clerics and causing division and suspicion among Nigerians especially in the north.
It is the same APC government that has closed down mosques and Islamic centers belonging to the Ashabul Kahfi under the Qadiriyya Sufi Order simply because they not Wahhabi/Salafists. The APC regime in the state also threatened te leader of the group Sheikh Abduljabbar Nasir Kabara for no just course. It is also the same APC that has invited the Wahhabis to Nigeria and paid special visit to Saudi Arabia who have also opened the gates of the Ka’bah to the Nigeria’s APC regime.
It is such that no Muslim in northern Nigeria is safe if he does not belong to the Wahhabi sects because he could be attacked any minute and molested for not supporting the APC regime.
Apart from the sorrow, tears and blood it has caused hundreds of families in Nigeria who have lost their loved ones as a result of the actions or inactions of the APC regime many more have been forced into institutionalized poverty.
Workers stay several months without remunerations in many states while inn other states the APC regime introduces stringent economic measures forcing people into untold hardships. The APC regime rules by impunity and does not have any regards for the judicial system unless it is in its interest.
In Kaduna state, for no tenable and justifiable reason the Governor spent billions of naira claiming to be feeding pupils in schools in which over 100 pupils in a class mostly sit on the floor with no furniture under damaged roofs and others seat in temporary tents.
In the same state about 22,000 teachers were sent packing, over 7,000 local government workers were sent packing, about 4,000 local chiefs were sent packing and some markets are set for demolition.
More so, the APC regime has set a selective fight against corruption in which opponents of the regime are victimized.
As a result of all these lack of civility by the APC in Nigeria especially in Northern Nigeria where anybody protesting or rallying against some policies of the regime is attacked and extra-judicially killed more and more people have lost hope in the regime.
In the early days of the regime people were full of praises to the leadership but today everything has changed such that people now publicly condemn the regime and its incompetence.
The public accuses the APC of telling lies to the public. They lied to them before they voted for them and now that they are not fulfilling their promises they are telling them lies to justify their lack of performance. The hospitals are now in worse states they have ever been before, education has deteriorated the more, jobs are more difficult to find, insecurity has increased especially on the side of kidnapping, armed robbery, political thugs, and even terrorism. Power supplies have worsened up, healthcare delivery services have deteriorated and more and more people are not only plunged into poverty but are also plunged into diseases and hunger all courtesy of the APC.
Nigerians truly feel deceived and misguided by the APC and the party is already losing its pillars and is close to crashing down. Nigerians see the party more as an enemy than a savior as whenever they speak to the public they tell them lies, when they make promises to them they fail them and when the public trusts them they betray he public.
Some of the leading APC in Nigeria are potential candidates of the International Criminal Court ICC in The Hague due to their role in the murder and forced disappearance of citizens in the country.
What remains clear is that very soon more and more people would like to cleanse themselves of all these filth founded by the party and would have no choice but to dump the party and we shall see who will vote it back to power in 2019.
