And Now, the Tenth Agenda

Adamu Adamu

Is Nigeria really a dream waiting to happen, as British Prime Minister David Cameron, who came calling the other day, so delicately and rather patronizingly--and as if by way of prayer--put it; or is it, indeed, a greater nightmare that has just refused to go away? Less than a fortnight after, by way of answer to the patronizing prayer, President Goodluck Jonathan unwittingly voted on the side of nightmare--a long, horrifying, sweaty, chilling, eerie nightmare. And the country is suddenly creeping back to the 2007days of struggle against former President Olusegun Obasanjo's third term dream that turned into the nation's nightmare.

But at least with Obasanjo, the nation knew it was dealing with a vindictive guy firmly in charge with agenda and a plan. Now, it is faced with a smiling jolly good fellow with an agenda without a plan.
