I have deliberately avoided this issue in the last 90 days despite pressure from all corners particularly from my ardent readers, friends, associates and colleagues seeking my comment and position on this burning issue of international concern.
Reason? I just couldn’t stand the thought of it. Each time, it struck my mind, it comes with a nauseating feeling. I feel like throwing up. I feel sick. I feel sorry for myself and the rest of about 200 million Nigerians. My entire system become so strange like the issue itself. It is so annoying….so disgusting to observe or witness during my time on planet earth that politics in my country has gone so bad…so much so that it has degenerated into my compatriots….I mean my fellow countrymen….and those who are supposed to be my leaders attempting to convince me that a stranger, a foreigner….and an alien is my President.
It even hurts me more and so devastatingly too each time I ask myself, how did we get here?….I mean how did we get to this point? Politics in and of our clime is indeed very wicked, very brutal and to say the least for the mindless. Otherwise, how possible could we just imagine waking up one morning to start this sad and ugly tale or debate of Jubril Al-Sudani?
Now for those who want to know or hear my position, Jubril Al-Sudani is a creation of the political class…..Of course the same political class that has turned democracy upside down in Nigeria. The same political class that ensured that Nigeria, her economy and politics defy all known and workable democratic solutions. The same political class that has embraced and enthroned BAD GOVERNANCE after ensuring that it’s direct opposite (GOOD GOVERNANCE) remains a wish, an illusion and an impossibility here. They killed and buried it.
Like Boko Haram, Jubril Al-Sudani is a creation of those within, near, in and around the corridors of power. They created Boko Haram to fan the embers of their political interests and today they got their fingers burnt. They are restless, the nation suffers and innocent, ordinary, common and unsuspecting citizens bear the brunt. The hundreds if not thousands of souls lost to the mindless killings of the insurgents are the poor, less privileged and downtrodden Nigerians. The families and children of the political class who set and has continued to stoke the fire of the insurgents are nowhere near the killing fields of Gamboa, Dong or Metele.

What won’t the political elites tell us? They are the ones threatening fire and brimstone. They are the ones harassing us with what they know. They are the ones vowing that the nation will be up in flames if they vomit what they know. Yet they are the ones defecting and cross carpeting from one party to another deceiving the average Nigerian. Once they fail to get their share of the “national cake”, I mean the spoil, hell is let loose. They lie to those they have deprived of education and good life. They whip up religious and ethnic sentiments for the latter to take up arms….for baboons and dogs to bath in blood…even as pipelines and oil installations are bombed.
The same political class loot the nation’s treasury, charting away the milk and honey of the nation to save or store in foreign banks and lands. The same political class got foreign funds belonging to the nation and refused to utilise it for payment of civil servants salaries. They saved it for their campaigns in the 2019 election. What do we say of a governor who left a debt of over N140bn while unconfirmed sources allege that he spent millions on the election of his successor?

The political class tells us heartrending stories. We hear an outgoing governor say, “I have not received a single salary since I became governor eight years ago”. Yet another governor says, “I don’t have any property here in Nigeria or overseas”. But the same governor refuses to declare his assets. Deceits, lies, pranks and pretence everywhere….all from the political class. Mastermind of Banks Robbery which left 32 innocent Nigerians dead, dies in detention during investigation. universities are on strike here yet those incharge of tertiary education travel overseas to attend the matriculation or convocation of their children. Government says it cannot afford above N30,000 minimum wage for workers but South Africa jerked up her’s to N126, 000 if converted to the naira. We can go on and on. Shame on to those who created Jubril Al-Sudani. Shame onto those lying about the identity and nationality of the man occupying Aso Villa. Shame on to those pricking the conscience of the masses and luring them for and into crisis, chaos or anarchy. Shame on to those lying that one Jubril Al-Sudani was cloned to sit in and act like President Muhammadu Buhari.

Shame on to those who created a non-existing impostor in Jubril Al-Sudani. If you know Jubril Al-Sudani is from Sudan please give us details of his family, village, town, LGA and state in Sudan. It is not enough to know that Jubril Al-Sudani is from Sudan. This is Internet age. Any and every information needed is at our doorsteps if not finger tips. We don’t need to travel far to get the facts. Jubril Al-Sudani has roots. He did not drop from the skies….and if he dropped from the sky, he must have been picked up on a spot….Where? When? How? He must have siblings and parents. He should have relatives. Where are these people? Or are they all dead?
It is a shame that you know that Jubril Al-Sudani is the impostor occupying Aso Villa yet, you could not ascertain the exact time and date he took over the reins of power. You couldn’t tell Nigerians who and who facilitated his coming into power and where and when he was cloned before resuming duties. Come out and tell Nigerians all the lies you claim to know and all falsehood you claim to be facts under your possession.

Thankfully, Americans all knew the Kenya roots of Barack Obama while he was President of the United States. Since you claim to know the roots of Jubril Al-Sudani, please let the world know or forever keep your lies and acts of anarchy. The least Nigerians can do is vote out Buhari come 2019 if they come to a consensus that his government has not done well in the past four years but not to create anarchy.
This piece is not about political parties or support for any political party or for Muhammadu Buhari. It is about the rot in our political system and the selfish acts of the political class who have sent the country into wilderness or doldrums. Yours Sincerely is not a card carrying member of the All Progressives Congress ((APC). I am not a supporter or fan of the party neither do I have sympathy for it. But truth must be said. Politics, democracy and good governance is not about political parties or individual politician. It is about happiness for and of the people. It is about better life for the people. It is about how to eradicate hunger, starvation and poverty. It is about how to give the people what they lacked….for instance steady power supply or regular electricity as it concerns Nigerians. Sadly in 58 years, no leader has been able to do this for Nigerians. No leader has been able to fix the power malady. They pretend not to know that steady power supply is the soul of industrialization yet they pay lip service to economic growth and prosperity. This is why we are still where we are after 58 years of independence. This is why South Africa who we helped to gain independence less than three decades ago is miles ahead of us.
Back to Jubril Al-Sudani, I will continue to dislike and disbelieve his existence as the man in Aso Villa until proven beyond doubt. Until then let’s keep making a huge joke of Jubril Al-Sudani and those who concocted or created him. If he is real or true which I won’t accept, I insist he is a creation of the deceit of the political class.
As a journalist, I try to do my job as professional as possible irrespective of whose ox is gored. We are all entitled to our opinions. But please hold your abuses and foul languages if your opinion goes contrary to mine.
The man in Aso Villa is Nigeria’s elected President, Muhammadu Buhari from Daura in Katsina State, North West Nigeria. Let’s stop disgracing and insulting ourselves before the international community, after all, we are not the only country in the world neither are we the only country with political problem. We are not the only country with ethnic or religious differences. Stop this Jubril Al-Sudani madness!
