CUPP: Coalition of Traitors! Traitors!!Traitors!!!
By Taju Tijani
Perfidious! Perfidious!!Perfidious that is what they are. Political vultures that is what they are! Political prostitutes that is what they are! Political scavengers that is what they are! Political rascals that is what they are! Political jobbers that is what they are! Political cowards that is what they are! We are seeing the entry of a pugnacious phase in the evolution of political associations in Nigeria. We are watching with sneering disdain how man, the rapacious and scavenging variants, can form a wicked confederacy of adversarial fraternity to pursue a depraved agenda of unseating just one man – President Muhammadu Buhari.
Our democracy is now going gothic where the twin evil of greed and revolting selfishness continue to drive public service and citizen engagement. We are also seeing the evolution of the barbarians trying to fight the virtuous. Olusegun Obasanjo, the king of the center of the universe, has metamorphosed again. Abubakar Atiku, the guy who owns half of Dubai, is out of the wood. Olu Falae is dug out of his pit to offer a gloss of legitimacy to a disparaging, inconsequential and political buffoons who shelter under the leaky umbrella of Coalition of United Political Parties. As I write, CUPP is an illegal entity that has been able to re-gathered incongruous characters with differing nuisance variables.
Most of the political assassins under the CUPP fold are ungracious, ungrateful, ill-mannered, boorish, clowns, ignorant, bullies and dangerous to our democracy. The supposed amalgamation of coalition of the so-called third force is nothing but byword for desperation, anarchism and disruption. One by one, members of this rogue gallery have, through sheer arrogance and cavalier insolence, pronounced annus horribilis over the APC government. Every articulation of President Mohammadu Buhari’s misses and slips are wrapped in savage attacks and mindless abuses. The ranks of R-APC to the least of the confederating party is now infested with delusional fantasy of seizing government by 2019 and sending President Mohammadu Buhari back to Daura. Deadpan easy? Is it?
There is no social compliance in their methodology. There is no political compliance in their operation. There is no ethical compliance in their ethos. There is no cultural synergy in their posturing.
All they know is that Nigeria is their Imperial Rome that must be taken back through stolen money, more money and nothing but money. There is no integrity capital among members of this noonday cowards, who, in their whimsical calculations, Nigerians are seen as fools who have no memory of the merciless plundering and balkanization carried out on the nations treasury by PDP from 2009 till 2015. Nigeria was obliterated morally, socially and politically.
Before May 2015 national rescue by President Mohammadu Buhari, Nigeria occupied the bottom place in all the mystery index you could imagine. Corruption was helped, sad to say, by ex-President Goodluck Jonathan who, in a moment of psychiatric seizure, pronounced that stealing was not corruption. Further, corruption was helped, sad to say, by the media that was bought over by the PDP, and the media in turn, offered its editorial boards, column spaces, airwaves as sounding boards of PDP misinformation, propaganda and social re-engineering.
In an apparently coordinated act of solidarity, nearly all media houses took money from Sambo Dasuki to help launder both the damaged ego of ex-President Jonathan and also wrap PDP as a party of progressive idealism as opposed to regressive and right wing populism that it truly was. Today, all the raging political hormone of CUPP is towards one agenda: destabilize the APC government, reject the politics of integrity and then rewrite the history of Nigeria in another painful chapter of corruption, bourgeois governance and reckless oppression of the Nigerian masses through monetized politics.
They want to return Nigeria back to the caves. Bukola Saraki and all his paid acolytes has one agenda: line behind their shepherd (Saraki) and prettify his image as the new messiah who could rescue Nigeria from all the blustering of gabbled explanations of Buhari that herdsmen could be defeated, economy is on the right tracks and anti-corruption war is on track. All the government narrative of the complexity of governance is falling on deaf ears. The R-APC rebels believe with astonishing ignorance, that Buhari is clueless. That is, their leader is clueless. Irony upon irony!
What a nation! What perfidy! To wake up one day and read that Bukola Saraki has been acquitted by the Supreme Court of 13 count charges of false declaration of assets backdated to 2003. That this shamelessly ambitious rascal is discharged of offences ranging from anticipatory declaration of assets to making false declaration of assets in forms he filed before the Code of Conduct Bureau while he was governor of Kwara state. That this crafty man was absolved of operating foreign accounts while being a public officer – Governor and Senator. The offences, the charge said, violated sections of the Fifth Schedule of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999, as amended. Mr. Saraki is also said to have breached Section 2 of the Code of Conduct Bureau and Tribunal Act which is punishable under paragraph 9 of the Fifth Schedule of the Constitution. The timing of his Supreme Court victory is not lost on intelligent Nigerians. He needs this crucial clean bill of corruption charges to ever be considered a presidential candidate for the rag tag assemblage of political jobbers plotting a democratic palace coup against President Mohammadu Buhari.
Saraki’s Republic of National Assembly has been variously regarded as a den of thieves and ritualists. Saraki, the con artist, looter, revisionist and betrayer went underground to fund insurrection and a circle of critics to savage Buhari over insecurity and herdsmen genocide without realizing that he is part of the clueless and inefficient APC government in power.
At a time when he needs to rally round his leader and show unflinching solidarity by sending strong messages to the herdsmen killers through party unity, he jumped ship and failed the test of collective responsibility.
Bukola Saraki has consistently demonstrates a post-modern political posturing that shrugs off collective ownership at the expense of selfish expediency. President Donald Trump of USA is a blustering racist, misogynist, ill-mannered, elitist, volatile, emotionally complex, unpredictable, unstable, trouble maker and dangerous. He has offended every government in every continent. His addiction to twittering is a bane and its real-time effectiveness has been abused by Trump to cause offence almost daily. Yet, and this is a big yet, the Republican Party has not fragmented because of the mental depravity of its leader.
The Republican Party has not collapsed because of Trump’s political shenanigans. The party members are is still supportive, loyal and long-suffering because of its steadfast bond of conservative ideology. Members of the US Congress are not shut up with stolen cash as Saraki has done to our National Assembly members. Senators in the US Congress are not fair-weather and calculating politicians looking for ways to destabilize Trump’s tenure.
This is the time to start to question the unquestioned tradition of political prostitution of the likes of Obasanjo, Saraki, Melaye and many other politicians whose purpose in politics is blatantly selfish interest as opposed to the nobler enterprise of national interests.
The ongoing contemporary political culture, which, turbo-charged by social media, only encourages narrow spectrum, personality-driven politics devoid of ideology which almost always opens door to traitors to destroy, balkanize and eventually abscond to form another cluster of disgruntled elements who have no integrity, character, principle and known political ideology. CUPP is not a benign entity that could deliver Nigeria from the complexity of its governance. Rather, it is the abyss of hell where Saraki wants to hand all members to Satan to string them on his hooks like suya.
President Mohammadu Buhari will win 2019 elections without any doubt. Nigerian voters are not fools. They have seen the interior compass and emptiness of past PDP’s massive looting of Nigeria’s resources. They have come to realize that rogue and desperate politicians are nothing but political prostitutes with zero visions of how to change the status quo. Rather they would rather reinforce its excesses and return governance to stealing and corruption. The CUPP gladiators are going for broke because they are already broken, defeated and subdued before the 2019 race. Away with traitors! Away with CUPP!! Away with desperate politics!!! Away with political parasites and lechers!
Griiingggg……….griiiiiinnnng…………Is JKF there? Thanks for vindicating all my postulations on Ekiti under its thoroughly beaten, bruised and roundly defeated head of Okada politics, Peter Ayo Fayose. He needs 39 lashes minus one on his broken back!!!
