Since the coming of this government of Buhari, I have been wondering what made Nigerians thought it wise to elect such an unperforming, inept and irresponsible government, even when they have a history not too long ago staring them in the face, pointing to what will be the outcome of Buhari's government.

These I have been trying to understand. Trying to understand the type of jazz performed on Nigerians. Even though I did not experience his first coming in the 80s, but just like I know the good intentions of Socrates without physically experiencing him, I have read about Buhari and I can emphatically say I knew him and what he stood for. Fela was right about him afterall.  Even if he has to resurrect again in years to come, maybe in 2050 when Nigerians will be electing him again, I still know he will have 150 cows to present as his assets.

In other to digest all these properly, I had to pick up for myself the book called 'Animal Farm' by George Orwell for the umpteenth time. This book portrays clearly what we now see in Nigeria. I cannot but liken PDP with Mr Jones and his workers, and APC with the newly formed government headed by the Pigs. To buttress it further, I can say that Buhari is Napoleon, Shehu Sani is Snowball of sort, while Lai Muhammad is the Squealer.

The Animals having revolted against the humans, sends the humans out and takes control over the Animal Farm. The animals had to agree not to engage on those things that in any way will liken them to man, the manipulator, the chief mischief maker as they sees humans. Simply put, the animals wanted CHANGE.
With these in mind, they made the seven commandments, which ran thus;

1. Whatever goes upon two legs is an enemy.
2. Whatever goes upon four legs, or has wings is a friend.
3.No animal shall wear clothes.
4. No animal shall sleep on a bed.
5. No animal shall drink alcohol.
6. No animal shall kill any other animal.
7. All animals are equal.

This commandments they later summed up, through the ingenuity of the pigs as " four legs good, two legs bad. They got the sheep bleating it all the time. The sheep here represents the typical APC supporters. Just as it was in Nigeria, especially in South West and the entire Northern Nigeria. People trooped out in numbers, dancing and bleating Sai Baba, Sai Baba during the handover period. How Sai Baba has suddenly died down is a discussion for another day.

The animals were also happy over the successful take over of the Minor Farm. They were seen galloping with joy round the farm house singing 'Beast of England'.

It did not take long, milk started disappearing, the pigs started enjoying those things they said  are of humans. They even started drinking milk, ate apples and now have quarters just like Mr Jones ( human).

In defence of the pigs, at that time, the animals found out the whereabout of the milk, Squealer (Lai Mohammed) has these to tell the other animals.

"Comrades" he cried. "You do not imagine, I hope that we pigs are doing this in a spirit of selfishness and privilege? Many of us (APC/North/Fulani) actually dislike milk and apples. I (Lai Mohammed) dislike them myself. Our sole objective in taking these things is to preserve our health.
Milk and apples (this has been proved by science comrades) contain substance absolutely necessary to the well being of a pig. We pigs(APC/North/Fulani) are brain workers. The whole management and organization of this farm (Nigeria) depends on us.
Day and night we are watching over your welfare. IT IS FOR YOUR (NIGERIANS) SAKE THAT WE DRINK THAT MILK AND EAT THOSE APPLES.  Do you know what will happen if we pigs fail in our duty?

Jones (PDP) would comeback! Yes, Jones would comeback!

Surely, comrades, cried squealer almost pleadingly, skipping from side to side and whisking his tail, "Surely there is no one among you who wants to see Jones (Jonathan) come back? "

Since everybody were made to believe Jones is their only problem and no one wants him back they believed whatever Squealer said. In the same way, APC demonized PDP and Jonathan, blaming them for every of their shortcomings, the people now take whatever rubbish they sold to them. APC supporters now do not mind if APC is keeping the law. In fact, they can break the law, provided Lai Mohammed told them how 100 trillion dollars were discovered in Metu's grandfather's grave. APC supporters even dish out excuses on behalf of APC and Buhari.

How do you expect Buhari to succeed when Jonathan has stolen all the money, APC supporters always say.

APC can pad budget, and budget outrageous figures for ordinary cutting of hairs and buying of books.

All these monies they take, not because they need them, in the voice of Squealer. APC politicians hate money. Amechi has not taken or given bribe before, Buhari has no money in his account, he is allergic to money and got an award as the only poor Nigerian general. Do I need to remind you that our supper minister, Fashola has never signed cheque before?

So in all, APC takes these milks and apples (monies) not because they like them, but because of you people. Who would want Jonathan that continues to destroy Nigeria after he left office to comeback?

Napoleon after expelling Snowball from the Republic of Animal Farm, turned himself into a tyrant.
He reared the dogs (DSS, EFCC, Fulani herdsmen, Army and Police) and used them to deal with any man or people that goes against his plan. The first to receive these happens to be snowball. The fierce looking dogs has to chase him out of the farm and no one ever saw him again. But Napoleon blamed him for every bad thing that happened in the farm ever after, and also did not fail to claim all the glory brought into Animal Farm by Snowball. Remember Buhari claiming all the success of Jonathan, ranging from power, refinery, polio eradication, to the railway line. But will be quick to blame Jonathan for every of his shortcomings.

How the animals in the Animal Farm believes everything coming from Squealer wonders me, but a look at Buhari and his supporters settles everything.

No animal shall sleep on a bed has been changed to, no animal shall sleep on a bed with bed sheets.

No animal shall kill each other changed to, no animal shall kill each other without a cause.

All animals are equal became, all animals are equal but some are more equal than others.

All Promises Changed.

In all these, the animals believed Napoleon whom they established as 'always right. Same way APC supporters always defy logic in their support for Buhari.

Mr Jones has eaten all our yams. Buhari is suffering because Jones ( Jonathan) did not save. Buhari's body language increased power and repaired our refinery in hours, only for Jonathan to sneak in and have it all destroyed.

Now change starts with me and not Buhari, and yes Buhari is always right.

'Nigerians are criminals '. As far as it is Buhari that said it, it is true. APC supporters started brandishing their pictures with the inscription 'I AM A NIGERIAN AND I AM A CRIMINAL'.

Can you actually spot any difference from the animals of Animal Farm from the Animals of Nigeria? I doubt.

The animals got mesmerized that even the air they breathe in, they attributed it to Napoleon.

"Under the guidance of our Leader Napoleon, I laid five eggs in six day," the hen said.

"Thanks to the leadership of comrade Napoleon, how excellent this water tastes, " exclaimed the cow.

Instead  of things getting better, it all got worst. In all I see no difference between Jones and Napoleon. Napoleon is the worst.

From outside I looked "from pig to man and from man to pig, and from pig to man again, but already it was impossible to say which is which."

May 29, 1999 - November 2017 and still counting.

Buhari's change is just a scam.

Happy recession Nigerians. As it was in 1984 so it is today.

Biafrans are no longer interested in Nigeria because Nigeria has become the worst animal farm in history. We are boycotting all elections and we say no to corrupt politicians and leadership. Biafra is the hope of a common man we represent today.
Biafra is alive!
