Where Did Buhari’s Government Get It Wrong?
They Got It Wrong By Playing The Script Of Vengeance And The Neglect Of Their Citizens, Especially The Less-Privilege
Despite the fact that Nigerian elders, religious leaders in conjunction with rogue politicians in Nigeria packaged their Integrity Buhari and the holy Pastor Osibajo into the seat of power with expensive lies, deception, and propaganda, due to the vulnerability of Nigerian citizens.
Yet President Buhari and his vice Yemi Osibajo have never found it necessary to put water on the table of genuinely poor people, less privilege not to talk of giving them food to eat, except dolling out the nation’s money to their own party members and families with style, all in the name of fighting corruption that they themselves are part of, what they are fighting is vengeance and their enemies which may want to be an obstacle to them in the future.
The Scripture says, “Does not wisdom call, And understanding lift up her voice? On top of the heights beside the way, Where the paths meet, she takes her stand; Beside the gates, at the opening to the city, At the entrance of the doors, she cries out: “To you, O men, I call, And my voice is to the sons of men. “O naive ones, understand prudence; And, O fools, understand wisdom. Proverbs 8:1-5
NIGERIANS, WISDOM IS CRYING OUT
Let us look at one example in the scripture, someone did a very wrong thing that was worth severe punishment, but David decided not to punish him because of what people might say, not because God had shown him mercy and favor throughout his lifetime.
“Now you also know what Joab the son of Zeruiah did to me, what he did to the two commanders of the armies of Israel, to Abner the son of Ner, and to Amasa the son of Jether, whom he killed; he also shed the blood of war in peace. And he put the blood of war on his belt about his waist and on his sandals on his feet. So act according to your wisdom, and do not let his gray hair go down to Sheol in peace. But show kindness to the sons of Barzillai the Gileadite, and let them be among those who eat at your table; for they assisted me when I fled from Absalom your brother. Behold, there is with you Shimei the son of Gera the Benjamite, of Bahurim; now it was he who cursed me with a violent curse on the day I went to Mahanaim. But when he came down to me at the Jordan, I swore to him by the Lord, saying, and ‘I will not put you to death with the sword.’ Now, therefore, do not let him go unpunished, for you are a wise man; and you will know what you ought to do to him, and you will bring his gray hair down to Sheol with blood.” 1 Kings 2:5-8
David instructed Solomon to deal with the person that did wrong to him mercilessly but having a heart for worship saved Solomon from the destruction his father planted for him.
VENGEANCE IS OF THE LORD, AND ONLY THE HEART OF GRATITUDE CAN SHIELD SOMEONE FROM TAKING VENGEANCE
“Solomon went up there before the Lord to the bronze altar which was at the tent of meeting, and offered a thousand burnt offerings on it. In that night God appeared to Solomon and said to him, “Ask what I shall give you.” Solomon said to God, “You have dealt with my father David with great loving-kindness, and have made me king in his place. Now, O Lord God, Your promise to my father David is fulfilled, for You have made me king over a people as numerous as the dust of the earth. Give me now wisdom and knowledge, that I may go out and come in before this people, for who can rule this great people of Yours?” 2 Chronicles 1
WHEN YOU MISS GOD’S LEADING YOU WILL DEFINITELY LOSE DIRECTION
President Mohammed Buhari and his Vice Pastor Professor Yemi Osibajo’s case is basically like someone that has fifty thousand nairas and has thirty-six children that got admission into various universities. What the person need was thirty-six thousand nairas to situate all of his children in their respective universities.
But, because of selfishness and the fear of the unknown, Buhari keeps on traveling around the globe, begging other people for assistance so that he will be able to pay his children’s school fees of thirty-six thousand nairas. At the end of the day, he and his group of companies squander a guaranteed fifty thousand nairas on traveling around the globe, on fake promises and propaganda, along the line he ended up acquiring more debts of thousands of nairas with his children at home going to no school, other than selling sachet waters on the roadside and scouting for food to eat from their neighbors.
