THEATRE OF THE ABSURD






Finally, it has been announced that President Yar’Adua is dead, and reports on www.234next.com have it that Goodluck Jonathan has been sworn in as the President of the country. Click here for more details.
Well, I am of the opinion that Yar’Adua has been ‘dead’ for a long time, it is just that the news is only now been released in the public domain. I do not mean that he has been physically dead for a long time, what I mean is that he long since ceased to be relevant in affairs of state.
I am not particularly happy at the death of Mr. Yar’Adua, what I am happy at is that the Nigerian state no longer has an excuse to run around in circles, and the new President can fully concentrate on the task of moving the country forward without the fear that some invalid may suddenly resurrect and ask to be reinstated.
Turai, and the Nigerian polity at large should learn from this – the office of the President is larger than any one individual. I daresay that until the Nigerian state understands and incorporates that principle, we may return to this same point in some form at some time in the future.
Well, here comes the curtain on the reign of Mr. Yar’Adua. We have come to the end of the first act – in the theatre of the absurd. Forgetting those things which are behind, we look forward to a greater and better future. It’s time to move this great country of ours forward.
Let’s do this, shall we?

The conclusion of the matter : "the Nigerian polity at large should learn from this – the office of the President is larger than any one individual." and "the Nigerian state no longer has an excuse to run around in circles, and the new President can fully concentrate on the task of moving the country forward without the fear that some invalid may suddenly resurrect and ask to be reinstated."

    Short but true words spoken, my friend.

    How've you been?
