A Familiar Beat: These Are Trying Times By Tosin Omigie

Did you bat an eyelid when you heard Mr. President was travelling abroad for a few days for a “much needed vacation’? For crying out loud, PMB has junketed out on so many occasions that one more time did not particularly seem like a big deal.

Suddenly social media’s ubiquitous treadmills drop a bomb and allege that the President has passed. Like you, I went straight to seek direct information on this rumour from credible sources online. There was not even a hint. I dismissed it as the work of mischief makers and really could not wrap my fingers around her perverse some folks could be.

I may have had some pretty scathing things to say about PMB but I most certainly do not wish him dead. Why? How?

Well, I moved on and continued to observe and speak out, as I am wont to do, against shortcomings and failings in government.

Then, there was the news about IBB meeting with the Northern Governors and then the Northern Governors having a meeting among themselves. I am reminded of GEJ’s visit to OBJ only a few days before these and suddenly its all beginning to seem like I have read this book before. The beat of the song becomes all too familiar. Where have I heard this tune before? Whose sound track was it?

It wasn’t until I read a few moments ago the statement from the Sokoto State Governor requesting that we pray for PMB who is very ill and remember reading yesterday that the IG had to fly out to London to see him that my antenna begins to rise. I am not by nature a suspicious person but when things begin to add up without a plausible explanation to the contrary, I begin to get concerned.

For the record, I would be praying for PMB; that he would get well quickly and be strong enough to find that we have caught on to the semblance of an Islamic agenda; that the grazing bill would fail and that if he fails to deliver on his electoral promises, he should not bother seeking re-election in 2019 and, if he does, be prepared to lose. This is healthy for democracy and I am a democrat.

I refuse to think or act otherwise. Running a country like Nigeria is not child’s play as PMB has now come to see. Even his sincere actions, and I believe he would have had one or two, are now misinterpreted and treated with distrust. The memo from the Katsina University coming so soon after the Southern Kaduna debacle certainly has not helped his cause.

I choose to believe that the beat is only familiar but that this is a different song, another story (not the one I once read) as I join several others in wishing the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, a quick recovery. God bless PMB.aAre trying times By Tosin Omigie
