A gesture displaying four of the fingers of both hands with the thumbs folded on bent on the palms has been keeping tongues wagging since the visit of President Muhammadu Buhari to the National Assembly during his presentation of the 2019 budget which turned a very rowdy event.
According to sources in Aso Villa, the gesture was first noticed during the event organised by PROJECT 4+4. Recall that it was the event where First Lady, Aisha Buhari revealed that two men were manipulating this government. PROJECT 4+4 allegedly is a group established to help in the campaign of President Buhari for the 2019 election. The project is to help galvanize support to actualize the eight years of two terms of Buhari. Unconfirmed reports say, PROJECT 4+4 is bankrolled or sponsored by a very influential presidential aide.
Some photos of Mr. President on social media displaying four of his fingers of both hands which is roundly interpreted to mean that he will surely win the 2019 election to complete his two terms have been debunked by few persons in the presidency who said, the pictures were doctored or photoshopped.
However, there is a contradiction from another top presidency aide who asked, “What is wrong with the photos or sign language? Isn’t His Excellency in the presidential race to win? What is wrong with him doing eight years? Is there any law from INEC that says he should not show such sign which if you ask me is part of his campaign? Those who are afraid or scared of the sign language should just step aside because it is the reality of what is to come”.
Interesting days ahead one may say…..as we gradually ride towards February for the general election. But I just hope some people are not counting their chickens before they are hatched. I also hope the opposition is not sleeping and snoring. Nigerians will not want to hear nor take excuses of failure or defeat…..as you make your bed so you must lay on it. Election is in the air. Politicians see elections as examinations and they deploy all efforts, tricks, resources and perhaps forces to getting desired results. The wind is blowing alongside the season of hammathan and it’s natural exciting feelings and experience.
Once the dusts are settled….it will be election and the result. The politicians say fair is foul….and foul is fair. We saw it in Osun…..Best of luck to the gladiators but most especially to Nigerians!
