please Don’t Run For Second Term - Dele Momodu Pleads With Buhari In Open Letter
(19110 Views )


Publisher of Ovation magazine and media
personality, Dele Momodu, took time to pen an
open letter to President Buhari imploring him
not to seek a second term but instead head
back home with his honor intact.


With the presidential re-election campaign officially
started, there have been mixed reactions with
some confident in the President’s ability to sway the
populace and many advising the man against
running.

Dele Momodu’s letter read;
“Kindly permit me to be
as brutally frank as possible. As a stakeholder who
made his modest contribution to your emergence
as Presidentand Commander-in-Chief of the Armed
Forces, I owe you nothing but the truth. I was not a
member of your party when I volunteered to support your mission and ambition in 2015.
I was elated when Nigerians succeeded in chasing away
the profligate and reckless government of the PDP,
led by President Goodluck Jonathan. I was one of
those who unleashed terror on that government
and I subsequently presented you with a compilation of my articles in which I criticised and
advised the then President, free of charge. I never
expected that our situation could ever get worse
under the APC government that almost literally
promised heaven and earth. But it has become
evident that it is easier to govern by words of mouth than by force of action.

“It is indeed shameful that those like me who
supported you so vociferously have become B.utts
of jokes everywhere we go. Sir, I plead with you to
ignore your acolytes who may be telling you that all
is well in Nigeria. My unequivocal verdict, without
any fear of contradiction is that things are very bad. While I will not, in all honesty, totally heap the
blame on you, there is no doubt that your
government has been less than competent.

I’m reasonably convinced that you have not availed
yourself of the abundant talents it has so pleased
God to endow Nigeria with. Rather, you’ve chosen to saddle yourself with hungry lions and
deadwoods that you’ve resurrected from penury
and oblivion. Leadership should be about
managing people and resources.

Most of the people you are working with are already retired or
tired and with little or nothing new to contribute.

“It is grossly unfair that it was very convenient for
us to lampoon and scandalise Dr Goodluck
Jonathan, yet most of us have remained funereally
silent and unreasonably complicit in the evil that the
current men of power are perpetrating and
perpetuating under your watch.

Unknown to you Sir, some people are merely using you to rule by
proxy. There is no evidence of discipline in your
team, one of the greatest things you preached so
fervently about in your first coming as military Head
of State. Your acolytes are virtually getting away
with murder. Someone, somewhere, sat down with birds of the same feathers, to conjure and compile
the most disgraceful list of political appointees ever
and yet nothing has happened to those who
brought such perfidious insults on our nation.
Instead, we are being regaled with tales by the
moonlight to gloss over serious maladies in the polity and damning treachery against our nation.
No serious apologies. No penitence.

Only some foolhardy cockiness from those who will repeat the
same nonsense when tomorrow comes. “Your Excellency, it has become very difficult, if not
impossible to defend the excessive shortcomings
of your government, please, permit my oxymoron
Sir.

We definitely want you to succeed but it seems
some demons are desperately determined to make
you fail by all means. The more your administration unravels, the more ridiculously hopeless it seems.
You have waltzed from crisis to crisis instead of
from glory to glory, as most of us expected.

We thought you truly possessed the magic wand and
talismanic effect to make all our problems
evaporate and vamoose in a jiffy. We did not expect to be regularly mesmerised by impotent excuses
galore. I sincerely doff my hat to your wonderful wife for
her rare and uncommon courage. Regardless of
what her detractors may say, she is the only insider
who has been trying to say it as it is.

Even if some of her critics feel she’s seeking for relevance in your
kingdom, it is still within her rights. I’m sure that when the day of reckoning comes, you will
remember and appreciate her timely warnings.
Without mincing words, what Madam Aisha Buhari
has been trying to tell you in clear terms is that this
government is swimming in a big foul mess and
that you should not be carried away by the fake adulation and false adoration you see all around
you.

There is no government in Nigeria that did not
enjoy the services of praise-singers who
disappeared as soon as the government itself
collapsed like a pack of cards. Ask President
Jonathan!

“I’m aware that your foot-soldiers are already
warming up for the next election. I really do not
know what they hope to tell and sell to the
electorate this time, particularly after the colossal
failure of the last three years. I do not see how they
expect to fund your campaign without resorting to the same type of extravagant jamboree we
witnessed in the dying and last days of the PDP’s
prodigality.

As a result of your decision to contest
again, you are being forced by circumstances
beyond your control to compromise and capitulate
on your known principles. Is it not better, and more profitable, to return home, triumphantly, with your
reputation intact than to win a pyrrhic victory with
everything you ever stood for wasted on the altar
of vainglorious aggrandisement?

What guarantees do you have that you will win the next election
even if you agree to sell Nigeria to the political gladiators? Sir, I’m pleading with you in the name of God, the
Merciful and all-powerful, that you don’t need two
terms, or eight years in power, to prove your
greatness.

Nelson Mandela spent only one term in
power and retired to superlative glory as the
world’s most respected and revered and idolised statesman.

Robert Mugabe spent about four
decades in power, yet he returned home in total
infamy and unenviable disgrace. It is a lesson of life
that we must all learn, sooner rather than later, that
man shall not live by power alone. I know my
preaching is not likely to touch you and your hardened supporters but, at the very least, I want it
to be on record that I spoke publicly, out of
genuine love and concern, while you were being
goaded on by those who stand to gain more if you
win a re-election next year.

For most of those asking you to continue, by fire and by force, it is always about their personal agenda and survival.
They know their political careers would come to a
shuddering halt and abrupt standstill should you
fail in your bid to come back. In their desperation to
come back at all costs, they are going to do exactly
what PDP did, or even much worse.

What m0ral authority would you then have to justify the
continued detention and harassment of some of
the PDP operatives accused of wasting government
resources on Jonathan’s truncated re-election bid.
Who amongst us can in good conscience say in the
marketplace that you won the last election on pure merit and that no substantial government funding
went into your campaigns. This year promises to be an interesting one.

You will soon discover how treacherous human beings
can be when some of those hailing you today as
the authentic Messiah begin to show you their true
colours. Our country is bleeding dangerously while
some over-pampered politicians can only think of winning elections by hook or by crook.

The quality
of your appointees in recent time points to how
directionless your government has finally become.
In a country overflowing with so many amazing
brains and talents, it is incredibly shameful that
those are your best representatives for our country. The easiest way for a leader to fail is to continue to
attract those much worse than himself. Conversely,
the best way to succeed is for a leader to recognise
and attract and surround himself with those much
better in all aspects of human endeavour.

This does not erase or take anything away from the leader but it actually enhances his personality and how he
is perceived by everyone.

The late sage of blessed memory, Chief Obafemi Awolowo, was a veritable
example of how a leader can effectively tap into the
collective brains of some geniuses and add to his
own in a way that makes him appear super-human.

Nigeria has never been in short supply of whiz kids
at home and abroad but Nigeria started dying
when our leaders stopped respecting merit and
preferred to enthrone mediocrity. The truth is
mediocrity begets further mediocrity.

The few good leaders in your government have not been able to display their wizardry out of fear and trepidation
that some cabal would mark them out and H@ck
them down so ruthlessly. It is a sign of the times,
that the courage, astuteness and brilliance that
made them stand out in the political crowd has
suddenly taken flight and they are now little more than wimps in your insipid government.

The bureaucracy in Abuja is enough to suffocate and
disorientate any fertile mind. If I were in your shoes, I would consider that it is
not too late to groom and propel some of the best
brains in APC or even those living beyond the
shores of Nigeria to succeed me. You do not need
to look far in this regard but I will not make any
suggestions today, lest it be misinterpreted that I am touting any particular individual as a worthy
successor.

I’m reasonably convinced that you have
worked very hard and seem to have reached your
peak. To God be the glory. In a country of nearly
200 million people, God has been too kind to you.
Apart from former President Olusegun Obasanjo, no other Nigerian has been given a second chance so
miraculously.

You will be able to justify this
unmerited favour by leaving Nigeria much better
than you met it. The only way you can do that in the
next remaining year is to sacrifice your own
personal ambition and hand over the country to proven and tested modern and cosmopolitan
technocrats. The world has moved beyond the
backwardness that we are being saddled with in
Nigeria today.

The world expects us to be the true
giant and leader of Africa not by words but indeed. My appeal to you is to urgently do a self-
assessment to determine and decide on whether
you are what Nigeria needs at this time and age for
our country to join the comity of other nations in
their march towards technological advancement,
political stability, social security and economic prosperity.

With all due respect, Sir, if your answer is yes to the
above, you may go ahead and contest but if in all
honesty, the answer is no, my prayer is that you will
find the courage and selfless spirit to quit the stage
while the ovation is loudest. That in itself would be
a deserving legacy. I’m watching and waiting for your patriotic decision with bated breath.

Thank you, Mr President, for your usual attention
and kind consideration of my latest memo to you,
albeit so early in the year.’
