Opinion: Every Nigerian should be extremely concerned about Atiku and Tinubu’s desire to become president.



Every Nigerian should be extremely concerned about Atiku and Tinubu’s desire to become president.

Atiku stood for president in 1993 under the SDP but was defeated by Abiola in the primary elections. He was appointed Vice President by Obasanjo in 1999. By 2003, he had had a falling out with his boss and had made an unsuccessful attempt to blackmail OBJ into not running for office.

He left the PDP for the ACN in 2007 and ran for president, losing again. In 2011, he joined the PDP again and campaigned for president, losing to Jonathan in the primary.

In 2014, he returned to the PDP and joined the APC. He then stood for president but lost to Buhari in the primary elections. He quit the APC in 2017 and joined the PDP once more. He ran for president in 2019 but was unsuccessful.

He is running for president once more in 2023.

One man’s utter desperation to become president after 30 years.

He has lost millions of dollars due to all of his failed bids. This man has no interest in improving the nation; instead, he is on a mission to destroy what is left of Nigeria in order to make up for his losses.

The case of Tinubu is even more repulsive. a person who feels entitled to the presidency simply because it is his turn. Not more, not less.

His campaign stance was that it was his turn to be president because he supported Buhari in becoming president, but he had no economic plan, no policy, and no strategy to address Nigeria’s security concerns.

I’m not sure which of Tinubu’s beliefs that he should be elected president as compensation for aiding the current administration’s rise to power or his belief that he should be compensated for aiding the worst regime this nation has ever seen to power is more offensive and worrisome.

It is really alarming that this is even being discussed, as if Nigeria were a gift basket that ought to be presented to him in appreciation for his ostensible allegiance.

These two men have the wrong motivations for their great desperation to win the presidency.

2023 is a crucial year.

If you were between 20 and 22 years old when Buhari took office, you will be between 28 and 30 years old when he leaves office the following year.

You will be between 36 and 38 years old when the next president takes office and will have been in office for 8 years.

Your entire formative years, which were probably your most productive ones, were marred by poor leadership.

The importance of getting PVC cannot be overstated.

If we haven’t seized control of the nation from these men who have resolved to destroy it, we will have missed a tremendous opportunity.

Atiku and Tinubu losing means Nigeria winning.
