Looking at president Obama’s face, you can see that the entire problem of USA resides in his fast aging face and greying hair. Meanwhile, President Jonathan youthfully freshens up in Nigeria. While our problems rest solely on faces of poor people. Who bear the brunt for corruption and misrule.
Mr Obama’s face is quickly being defaced by old age since after taking office. And, on the contrary, our own president is getting younger by the seconds. Jonathan’s youthful outlook in the midst of so many problems in Nigeria is a miracle that cannot be explained scientifically.
Every hardworking, serious and purposeful president, ages fast than normal in the aftermath of taking over statecraft. This is political correctness. If a president who oversees the problems of over one hundred and forty million people keeps getting younger and fresher after assuming office, something must be wrong somewhere. And there have to be outcries over why he’s bouncing while most citizens are rueing their Nigerian citizenship and the day they were born. The additional factor whereupon he is smiling carefree with all his 32 open as close-up tooth paste is not helping matters. If all Nigerians are bouncing, smiling and looking youthful as our jolly happy president, no one would be throwing stones on him? But not when a lot of Nigerians are saddened and burdened by untold hardships, as a result of creeping corruption which Jonathan is promoting and unready to fight.
I have been watching this trend of fast aging leader since President Bill Clinton’s era. Immediately after taking office, a freshly looking Mr Clinton started to age deftly. The same was the case with his successor Bush Jr. You could see and feel that these leaders are carrying the problems of their country from head to toe and on their trouble-laden faces.
The same thing is applicable to European leaders who get older quickly. After few months of coming to office Tony Blair was looking like his father in age. Presidents and prime ministers from other geographies are not left out from this quick aging phenomenal.
Nigeria is the only country on earth where her leaders get younger and fresher once they come to public office. The reason for this is no more than. Whilst other world leaders are rolling up their sleeves and working themselves into stupor to up the happiness of their citizens and alleviate their pains; Nigerian rulers are looting and serving themselves instead of our people.
Just take a look at President Jonathan Goodluck’s face before and after he took office. And without fear of favour, frankly tell me what you see? Is he not getting younger and smiling fresher as deodorant? Jonathan could be admitted into junior secondary school if he did apply.
Mr Goodluck’s continued youthfulness and easy life even as he plans to strangulate Nigerians with his mindless economic policy, is troubling. The president and his family will be living larger than life and spending our thrift in next years to come. The poor man will be living Spartan and paying the bills from both sides.
Just when Aso Rock’s budget and number of staffers keep climbing up as years goes by. In the upcoming year 2012 and farther, poor Nigerians would pay even dearer for Jonathan’s economic missteps. A sharp departure from what they use to go through previously before Jonathan gate-crashed into Aso Rock via magic of Jega’s INEC plus. Recent announcement from five perverted judges who claimed Jonathan won 2011 presidential election solid. Not that Nigerians were having a swell time before he came into office. The difference is that rather than leave Nigerians as he met them; he has chosen to increase our woes with. His dubious Transformation Agenda from witch coven.
The poor countryside boy, who once trekked to school shoeless, now has enough money to feed his wife spoonful in the mouth, anywhere, time and place worldwide. No more hassles. But why’d he not, when the money is overflowing? While plenty Nigerians, who now barefooted, would be readying themselves to eat from dustbin in 2012 and beyond when. Mr Jonathan’s backward Transformation Agenda hit the town near you.
The fuel price increment is burning up the country lately. More agendas which are anti-people are growing up from Aso Rock on daily basis. Tollgate taxation, electricity billing is on upward swing and co. The onetime self-confessed poor lad from Bayelsa has turned into a big punisher. The kind you see in sadomasochistic scenes where punishment is symbol of love and altruism. In the end, someone might write a book titled ‘Jonathan masturbated Nigerians For Self Lust.’ We were all alive when an American soldier brought out Iraqi male prisoners to masturbate before his army girlfriend as birthday gift. It all happened in the Iraqi-USA Abu Ghraib prison sex scandal. Jonathan is on his way to recreating that kind of mad inhumanity upon Nigerians with his down-pressing Transformation Agenda.
As I was wrote this article, I was also watching Sahara Reporters livestream. Where I saw the lady anchoring ‘Keeping It Real’ make mention of same topic of which I was writing about. That was a telepathy too much that. Both of us were thinking alike at the same time.
When’d Nigerian leaders start looking pale as their counterparts? And exactly when would everyday people in Nigeria be like their mates abroad? Who have enough money, happiness and joy for their personal enjoyments?
