If you really want a job of a man already in office, you will work so had, you will make lots of noise, you will repackage your resume and you will improve on all the four Ps of marketing to six to be relevant Ps, almost 12 months to the general elections APC is yet to pick its Presidential candidate in a nation with 225 tribes, with six geographical locations controlled by religions and tribal sentiments, who is fooling who?
APC may end up as nothing but a party with fire Brigade services approach, they may rush to pick a 71 years old former Dictator General Mohamadu Buhari or the Suspended Central Bank of Nigeria CBN Governor Lamido Sanusi as the flag bearer for 2015 against a comfortable President Jonathan with his last per-molar laugh and funny resource control hat.
The above was the policy adopted by the former President Bill Clinton of United States of America who said, the best thing you can do for yourself as the best politician in any hostile political setting is to allow your opponents to underestimate you, by the time the opponents will be planning and making noise about your past mistakes, you will be winning the second term. It was the same Clinton policy adopted by President Obama, the GOP were busy looking for his birth Certificate all over the world, and Obama won the second term, GOP will still be talking of the Obama-care and the Democrats will win again. It is called the Fabian strategy, which Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe used in the fifties, and sixties in Nigeria against Chief Awolowo.
President Jonathan is following the steps of these great guys, by the time the APC will be picking the Presidential candidate to run against President Jonathan, he may be getting comfortable for second term, APC without EPS which the Oracle recommended is not looking good, without any known primaries, no debates and not even town Hall meetings, everything is looking good for the man with the resource control hat and the structures of APC is nothing but funny ranting of ants at the local level, nationally, the party is weak, sadly, it is nothing but a butch of self seeking expired politicians. EPS would have made the party the best in Nigeria but for greed and lack of respect for the common people all of them like vultures are waiting to devour the nation with another set of vultures to destroy the vulnerable.
The Oracle said, APC started well but the party is dying gradually from the Labor room, the involvement of dirty politicians is killing the party, they hijacked the party which could have been the hope of the common people and right now it is tough for them to have a credible presidential candidate that can win in all the six regions of the country, the Oracle said it years ago, APC is a party for 2019 not 2015, that is if they can be strong enough to adopt EPS but they are deaf, and selfish and they may be watching the Aso rock like a parade from a distance in 2015.
Maybe they will win couple of States and Control the Senate, which a Tinubu may head, but the Presidency is not looking good for APC despite the shortcomings of President Jonathan.
Finally, the Oracle says politics is not a game of cards in the selection of a flag bearer, everything must be on the table, for the electorates to take the rightful decision if not when APC complains of being cheated in the election, they will not have the support of the people, they must place everything on the table with EPS, No matter our opinions about President Jonathan we know what he can do and what he can’t do, we just don’t want to leave stupidity for nonsense.
APC must place all their cards on the table on time, not few months to the election, we want to know the process of selecting a presidential candidate that will be fair to all the 225 tribes of Nigeria, the policy of the candidate, on those important issues to all the tribes of Nigeria, not a regional interest alone.
