Setting The Pace For The Younger Generation: The Buhari/ Osinbajo Model By AbdulRahman Agboola
The impunity and unprecedented corrupt practices recorded under the administration of President Jonathan is audible to the deaf and visible to the blind, but the mercenaries hired by the dubious personality that glorified stealing as different from corruption are not relenting in their fruitless efforts to falsify the good antecedents of General Muhammad Buhari in public service to cunningly break the cord of trust existing between the peoples General and the helpless masses.
Muhammad Buhari is certainly the most assaulted Presidential Candidate in the history of Nigeria by the detractors of good governance in Nigeria, owing to his readiness to restore sanity to the polity and accord dignity to the service of the Country. They called him a religious bigot, yet he associates with mankind in general, the called him a dictator, yet he is blessed with forthright men as followers, they called him a desperate person, yet he remain calm and composed while all attempts to derail his emergence as the Presidential Flag bearer of APC ended fruitlessly.
At the religion front, as a modest Muslim, there is no record of him oppressing Christians or promoting his religious belief at the expense of others during his entire career in the Nigeria Military. His respect for fairness and equity necessitated his insistence on a Christian as his running mate at the 2011 Presidential Election. In his current bid for the Presidency, many misguided personalities hired by PDP ruling government have been put to shame with the choice of Professor Osinbajo as his running mate for the 2015 Presidential Election.
The recent onslaught against him on age ground by some misguided Youths is very laughable because of the treacherous stance of the charlatans whipping age sentiment against the peoples’ General. The poor fate of this Country today is premised on the loss of values by majority of young people who engage heavily in nefarious activities in the class of Cultism, Prostitution, Armed Robbery, Drug Abuse, Advance Free Fraud and Highhandedness.
A proof of high level of insincerity of purpose among young people is the activities Students and Youth Leaders in Nigeria under the auspices of National Association of Nigeria Students (NANS) and National Youth Council of Nigeria (NYCN). At the NANS level, the leadership is populated with fake students commercializing the activities of the Association selling unmerited awards to wealthy people for pecuniary gains. The Student body does not benefit capitation fees from members but the leadership lives large with gangsters who eventually dissolve into circular politics using the students as baits to promote their political ambitions under the ruling party. At the NYCN level, the National Youth Policy define Youths as people aged 18-35 years of age but the leadership is populated with people over 40 years of age. NANS is the umbrella body for all students in Nigeria, and NYCN is the umbrella body for all Youths in Nigeria, these associations short changes the genuine members at will and responsible for the general misbehaviours among young people in Nigeria as statutory bodies with responsibility to guide members aright.
President Good luck Jonathan who was regarded as fresh air six years ago in his early 50years of age has impoverished the Country with his cluelessness and mismanagement of the affairs of the government, what the fresh air has brought to fore is inexperience and poor governance which has brought misfortune to both security and economy of Nigeria.
On the other hand, Mallam Nuhu Ribadu who was seen as a young man with integrity years ago have not only disappointed his teeming believers but with shenanigans like Femi Fani-Kayode, Nyesom Wike and a host of young men with track records in impunity, while I do not berate the existence of notable young men with hall marks in honest deeds, their meager population must be expanded for the collective trust in young people and to this end, one cannot but conclude that the service of experienced men with proven integrity is highly needed at this moment to set the pace of discipline, compliance with effective service delivery and moral uprightness for the younger generation.
General Muhammad Buhari is 72years of age with good agility and versatility, for him to command a gigantic level of followership convinced in his unblemished record of integrity and dignity is an attestation of positive inclinations, which is rare but worthy of emulation by the younger generation. His experience and understanding of the affairs of the Country as Former Head of State is a worthy criteria for effective leadership of the Country, while his vision for a united Nigeria where peace, justice and tranquility will reign is an assurance that his emergence as a President will enhance effectiveness of law and order which is the ultimate challenge confronting the Country today.
With the degeneration of moral values among youths coupled with poor leadership by the ruling class, the young people must be redirected towards best practices, to be well positioned for efficient and productive leadership. At the moment, the versatility of General Muhammad Buhari and Professor Yemi Osinbajo with untainted records in public service and positive antecedents in effective service delivery is the best for the people of this Country to provide profound leadership for the people and return the Country to the path of orderliness and greatness.
Professor Yemi Osinbajo is reputed in honest deeds and humanitarian action. As a renowned Scholar and astute legal luminary with experience and sound exposure in the rule of law as a leading Constitutional Lawyer in Nigeria with versatility in finance and economy, he is well positioned to complement the forthrightness of General Muhammad Buhari to take Nigeria out of the doldrums to greater heights.
The few young people committed to good deeds must be wary of the antics of the dubious youths profiteering from the misrule of President Jonathan attacking the personality of Muhammad Buhari, it is our responsibility to foster the growth and development of this Country by rallying round and facilitate the realization of a system change offered by the charismatic potentials of the gallant Presidential Flag bearer of APC, Muhammad Buhari.
