HIS "TRANSITION HOURS" UNDER HIS "WATCH"

he former president of Nigeria, Goodluck Jonathan is a man that readily comes to mind as a meek individual who intertwines corruption with meekness and cluelessness. In Yoruba axiom, our elder would say: pa mdl ni k j k a m p olgb n sode! (the rapaciousness and selfishness of a cat is a burden that makes us disbelieve that, cat is a good hunter)! To his warped and gullible children of corruption, Jonathan is seen as a small hero or thin-god in the house of corruption.

The ex-president contradicted himself profusely in his new inauspicious memoir. In a constitutional democracy, where the rule of laws prevails or sacrosanct, Jonathan would have been sued for exposing his government's atrocities against the Nigerian people. I am sure he didn't peruse or read through the book purportedly "authored" by him before sending it for publication. Dr. Jonathan's Ph.D acquisition to us is a suspect in the academic community. The man is bereft of common sense ideas everytime to convince potent minds! When you don't know when to keep quiet, you're susceptible to buffoonery, gaffes, manipulation and balderdash! I wish the man can just keep mute to stop his bunkum from salting our healing wounds or fouling our collective sense of history.

Meanwhile, I thought the former president Goodluck Jonathan's memoir would be a compendium of self-examination of his corrupt administration. We thought it was going to be a compelling recompense on behalf of Jonathan's administration for the crimes his coterie of looters had committed against the Nigerian people! We were completely wrong! It was a futile expectation as the clueless former president untimely churned out a memoir to sign out his cluelessness for the world to read. Anyway, it is a plus and good material to trigger emotions for the reelection of President Muhammadu Buhari in 2019.

Hisyorically, under Goodluck Ebele Jonathan's administration, Nigeria was raped blue! The raped and wellbeing of Nigeria as an entity was sent to intensive care unit for rescue and resuscitation. The nation is still in comatose and hemorrhaging from the evil of his administration. The remanants of these rapists are coming back again to prostitute the minds of those whose lust for malfeasance, assailment and corruption.

This writer is never a man who will be judgemental on a book he has not perused or thoroughly read; or news hasn't authenticated, but he's breaking his norm in this ordinariness and predictable circumstance. Jonathan's book will be full of bunkums to appeal to rational minds, but his warped and unsuspecting readers will wanton in showcasing his naivety and benightedness.

The timing of Goodluck Jonathan's memoir shows the density of his cluelessness. Every chapter of his book predictably will be an indictment of the former president of Nigeria, that is, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan's administration. l am sure the fertile and rational-minded readers of his book will come back to prove us right after its consummation....!!

Ordinarily, one would have expected the meek Oga Jona to just keep mute while the bruised nation waggle itself out from the burden of rape from the past administrations. But Mr. Nebu is a student in the school of naivety! He can't just stop spewing out claptrap or gibberish when it's most important to be muted! Nebu's inarticulate attitude keeps reoccurring unabated.

In the bunk of history, Nebu,'s "Future impossible tenses" and wrong construction in his book titled: "My Transition Hours" will also be consigned into the same dark inglorious bookshelf of "My Watch." These self-indicted books authored by Mr. Nebu and his master, the Tortoise of our political clime are another attempts to rewrite our ugly history in a awful and distorted way. But, history is bunk! As "My Watch" shenanigans and hypocrisy is triggered and surfaced by Alhaji Atiku's presidential ticket, the bunkumness of "My Transition Hours" will surely transmit President Muhammadu Buhari to victory in 2019.
