‘Comportment Before Buhari, Obsequious’
‘Obeisance To The Maximum Dictator , Unnecessary ‘
Why would a fine and upstanding Governor like Willie Obiano of Anambra state sit before President Muhammadu Buhari, remove his beautiful fedora hat and place it on his lap like a pliant puppy and obedient little schoolboy and pay homage and obesience to the maximum dictator? .
Willie Obiano knows his place. He knows how to behave in front of “massa”, he knows never to look him in the eye and he knows that “massa” is to be feared, reverred, worshipped and loved by every good house nigger and slave as if he were God.
It is in this context that one must ask why Kachikwu should be in the least bit surprised that he has not been granted access to President Buhari and that the northern Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation has completely usurped his functions and undermined his authority?
Did he really expect things to be any different in a Buhari administration? Has he forgotten that he is Igbo? Has he forgotten that his people are part of those that the President once disdainfully referred to as the “5 per cent”?
When I said that Buhari hated the Igbo some time back many were shocked, many disputed my assertion, many were in disbelief and many were in denial even when the evidence to prove and substantiate my assertion was incontrovertible and compelling.
Today a good number of hitherto and erstwhile doubting Thomas’, cynics and skeptics have seen the light, finally agreed with me and voiced their observations and concerns loudly and publicly.
The President himself affirmed our grave allegations and confirmed our worst fears during the course of his reprehensible, uninspiring and downright shameful Independence Day speech in which he insulted the Igbo elders and leaders and basicallly told them to go and control their children and wards.
This is bad enough but permit me to share something with you today that is even more disconcerting and troubling: the truth is that deep down Buhari has nothing but contempt for southerners, Middle Belters and Christians.
