Learn and understand the opponent you want to take on


"I repeat, anger is not a strategy. Feelings are not statistics. Learn and understand the opponent you want to take on.
See, I respect people’s choices in a democracy. Something hard for so many people, which often make me beggar the question, "why are we practising democracy?".
You want Buhari out? Fine.
You don’t want Buhari to run? Wrong!
You will vote Buhari out? Fine!
You are disappointed with some or all of his performances? Fine! Criticise the hell out of him.
You oppose his government? Fine! But you must respect those who support his government. It must be on the principle of equal rights.
You hate him? Fine! Others have right to LOVE him gidigan.
You cannot stand his face or name? Fine! He is not likely to resign, die or refuse to stand for a second term. You see why you need to up your game in selling whoever you desire to edge him out of office? Or is anger your strategy?
That many people don’t want him to run or die shows that they don’t even have what it takes to sell their preference to people. How can you say you are better than your opponent when what you seek is for the opponent to withdraw from the tournament or die?
I believe people who don’t know how to get into power don’t deserve to be in power. Same way those who can’t play football should simply remain as laughing, crying, excited, gloomy, happy, sad or angry fans and spectators.
The people up against Buhari are divided against themselves in several ways such that should they even agree to a coalition, they will sooner than later tear themselves apart greatly. In fact, the more delayed the coalition as the election draws closer, the higher the possibility of very acrimonious disintegration.
All these being said, if you cannot make a compelling case to people who hold the ace to elect Buhari’s replacement, you anger in vain.
And the more there’s any attempt to bully, shame, blackmail or stampede people into certain political preferences, the higher the rank of the silent majority becomes.
Discipline yourself into democratic mode." Olajide Abiola
My view:
We may need to find another form of governance that soothes us as Nigerians, soon. But, while we still practice democracy, let us embrace it’s tenets. Live and let others live too.
May Nigeria Succeed…
