WHO REALLY ARE THE WAILERS NOW: The Ruling APC Members or The Opposition PDP Members?

Buhari & Atiku.

It was the Special Adviser to the President on Media, Mr. Femi Adesina who two years ago coined the term “Weeping Wailers” to dismiss those who were perceptive enough to realise that Nigeria had stepped from frying pan to fire in 2015.  There was nobody actually weeping at the time. Today, for the first time in Nigeria’s history, three APC Governors are shedding real hot tears.

Borno State Governor, Kashim Shettima has moved over to Abuja to shed tears in Aso Rock – begging Buhari to end Boko Haram insurgency in his state. If you think that is nothing, try this one.
Zamfara State Governor too, Abdul’aziz Abubakar Yari is wailing, asking President Muhammadu Buhari to come and take over his job by declaring a State of Emergency in the State.
Together, the President and the Governor, both of APC, had made history in a way that does both of them no credit. This is the first time in our history that someone would plead to be relieved of a well-paid job as Governor in Nigeria. He has his reasons. Yari now shares the governance of Zamfara State with bandits and cattle rustlers. In fact, they are more in control.
A trip to Sokoto State which took a reporter through the state with stop-overs in Talata Mafara and Chafe was revealing. Whole communities have abandoned their farms and left the harvest to bandits.
Just in case you think that it cannot happen in Katsina, the President’s own state, then think again. Governor Aminu Masari of Katsina State has joined the “Weeping Wailers” of the Northeast and Northwest. He recently cried out that the APC-controlled state was besieged by armed robbers, bandits (again) and kidnappers. Like his colleagues in Zamfara and Sokoto State, he is on his hands and knees begging Buhari to save the President’s own state and before Lai Mohammed dismisses Masari’s Save Our Souls, SOS, alarm as fake news (another imitation of a foreigner Donald Trump of all people) some national newspapers on Wednesday, January 9, 2019 reported that “timely intervention of policemen on patrol along Gora/Dayi Road in the state saved a former President of the Court of Appeal, Justice Mamman Nasir, from being kidnapped by bandits. “ His driver was not so lucky as he was said to have been abducted by the bandits.
At least, this is one failure which President Buhari cannot blame on Goodluck Jonathan. There were no bandits in Zamfara and Katsina States when Jonathan was President.
Charity, we were once told begins at home. If so, can anybody please tell Nigerians why someone who cannot save his own home can be relied upon to save our own? Furthermore, it was over two years ago that Buhari and the Federal Minister for Information, Lai Mohammed, announced that Boko Haram had been degraded. If so, who brought down the helicopter and why are people in Baga area being asked to relocate to safer places?
Why should we believe them next time? Incidentally, Buhari and the same Lai Mohammed announced that the APC has fulfilled all its campaign promises. In May 2015, Baga had not been overrun by insurgents; it was a peaceful community. Today it is under siege. Katsina had no reported cases of armed robbery and kidnappings. Now, Masari has confirmed it has. Yari went into Gusau Governors Mansion a happy man. Now he wants to run away. Were there among the promises fulfilled?
