Fellow Countrymen,

I write to you because in principle we all trumpet fairness, human rights, honesty and integrity as necessary facilitators of the common interest and good of the people. However, over the past three years, but especially during the past few weeks..

#Thread
I’ve grown increasingly bewildered over how you could support a President who routinely and flagrantly dishonors all of those principles. I recall how we spoke against the evils of military years but today celebrate one of the culprits from that sad era as a messiah.
I assure you today that if you cast a vote for Buhari, future association on political causes between us would be impossible because our views & values are clearly so divergent to be mutually beneficial ever again. A vote for Buhari is a vote against nationhood & democracy.
You will have undermined your credibility on issues of the largest importance, and will therefore make political sympathy and cooperation impossible. Please do not make a mistake that will cheapen your vote, degrade your politics and hideously stain your principles.
Please do not give your vote to a man who has done nothing to deserve it and has, over the past three years, shown he possesses far less integrity and intelligence than you. His integrity & respect of the rule of law is a farce and a ruse used to bring him to power. Nothing more.
Many of his more ardent supporters view him as if he is surrounded by a Messianic light, and that he rode into the Federal Capital Territory sitting on a donkey, while crowds of adorers waved palm leaves to greet his arrival. It is unhealthy to cast a mere mortal into a savior.
He has not earned such a devotion, and unearned devotions builds an ego to megalomaniacal proportions. The result is often a personality cult that empowers the recipient of such a cultish fervour to do as he pleases because the devotees will excuse, defend, justify...and,
..rationalise any error or mistake, no matter how severe or damaging it is. The object becomes the advancement of a personality and not the progression of a policy. And that, dear countrymen, is where we find ourselves today. Buhari exults in your unearned devotion like a leech..
...on blood. His temperance & utterances, past and present, point to a man in love with anarchy, unremorseful in his disregard for the law and with a tendency to sacrifice the innocent to attain his misplaced ambitions. Do not vote this man in once again !
The Feb. 23rd Election will make or mar this country. The power would be in your thumb & choice to empower tyranny once again, thus enforcing the nonexistent pristine cult personality of Buhari, or redeem this nation by voting the best alternative to win (@atiku) by Saturday.
