Plus ça change

Yar'Adua, Buhari, Ojukwu. Plus ça change, plus c'est la meme chose. No, it's not History of Nigeria 101, it's the present. Former military dictator, purveyor of WAI, General Buhari, will run against Yar'Adua. (What happened to the ANPP/AC pact, cos it seems AC will also nominate someone). Yar'Adua, is of course the younger brother of Shehu Musa Yar'Adua, Buhari's former military colleague. And just like the last time, Ojukwu tries one more time.

Maybe the rest of the world should call Nigeria a recycling bin!
Recycled military dictator!

Ojukwu?! And Buhari has also emerged as a presidential candidate. It's getting from bad to ridiculous.

What is wrong with Ojuwu, ehn? WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS OJUKWU PUNK? This is someone who could not even win the civil war for his people and caused them decades of grief, yet he still believes he is a leader.

It is men like him that are responsible for the state of Nigeria. You would expect that a man of his age and status would put his clout and support behind someone fresh.

The concepts of "passing the torch" "handing over the baton" and "from generation to generation" do not make sense to them.

Let's just thank God he's not an athlete. No doubt he would be arguing that he was fit to run the 100m final in 2008.
