Saraki: To Your Tents, O Israel. By Joe Onwukeme.

In African



The biblical quote, "To your tents, O Israel", is the latest dissonant hit tune that has found it's melodious cymbals in our polity. Even with it's reverberating beats, many are still not comfortable.




Those that thought jumping ship in the middle of the sea would berth them to safety have found themselves in a pity party.  




Change is on the throne and the hurricane of change that blew out the past permissive, prodigal and profligate administration has resonated, but this time around to those with supposedly progressive credentials.




He who comes to equity must come with clean hands. Like judgment day, they have been appearing before equity but their hands have turned to an odoriferous bag of garbage.   




Even the politically mischief makers who in the past accused the present administration of witch-hunting and head-hunting the past permissive administration are losing their voices with the present realities.




Nobody is interested in the ethnic colouration or party afiliations of those in the eyes of the present storm. Rather, Some of us are comfortable now the relevant authorities are going after politicians of northern extraction, who were fingered in corruption cases. When manhunt of corrupt politicians from other regions will start, expressions of frustrations will take over our polity.




Regardless of the vital roles that each member of the governing party APC played during the formation and electioneering periods A bird that chooses to perch on the rope should get ready to dance with the rope.




The senate president, Bukola Saraki has found himself dancing on the rope he perched on since the beginning of this administration and one of his dance that gained local currency was the controversial manner he emerged as the senate president.




Last week's order of his arrest for failing to honour an invitation to appear before The Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) over false declaration of his assets was the final limit to his capacity.




There's a proverb that says  A hunter who has one arrow does not shoot with careless aim.


When the new Sheriff was reiterating at every turn that he would go after corrupt politicians including those in the governing party, we all thought it was the usual crafted rhetoric of politicians. Nigerians are now understanding the Sheriff's record of integrity, discipline and perceived sincerity of purpose.




Now the hammer has fallen on Senator Bukola Saraki, will justice be served? To many analysts, there's no getting around to this difficult conundrum of Senator Saraki. He could be worst than what he is being accused of. Justice must be served without fear or favour.




Will the clarion call be wide spread?


There's another African proverb that says All lizards lie prostrate, you can't tell the one that has stomach ache.




Justice in the past could see, that was when stealing was not corruption. Justice has gone back to it's natural state, blind.


It's Senator Saraki's turn and he has been answering his father's name alone.




While we await to see those who are already on their way to the special pit of universal opprobrium. I maintain the biblical aphorism that fissiparously led Israel into two divisions "To your tents, O Israel".

Buhari’ Kleptocracy , Kakistocracy , Religious Bigotry and Nepotistic looting – Abiodun Egunjobi

In their various offices, they are thieving and stealing the nation’s hopes, its spirit, and its belief in other Nigerians. They are stealing the pride of the hard-working, honest and tax-paying citizens. Worst of all, they are stealing the country’s hope and belief in democracy and the future of our children and of our country. It is time for them to go somewhere and not be heard from again; Buhari will end up in jail like Bashir of Sudan. Buhari has stolen the hopes of the youths in the country. Buhari has a reservation in the pits of hell.
