Mr. Ajuri Ngelale

"Good thinking, good product." - Anonymous.

"Nigeria will rise again among the comity of the nations." - Pastor Kumuyi.

s a disgruntled and hurt former Buharist with a chip on my shoulder, I have reservations about entrusting the government of Nigeria with all of my strength and moral fiber. Nevertheless, We can effect positive change if we have competent leadership and effective policies in place. Nigeria is a hub and destination for talent and human resources. Nigeria has all it takes to compete favorably with developed nations if our God-given resources are competently utilized and judiciously maximized.

"Good thinking, good product." Putting the round pegs in the round holes makes the structure solid. The appointment of Ajuri Ngelale as the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, and Nyesom Wike, the immediate former governor of River State, and other handlers was an incredibly astute and strategic decision by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu--PBAT. It demonstrates PBAT's responsibility for these appointments and handlers. He has carefully assessed who he chooses to fill these vital positions. This level of planning and foresight is essential for the success of any nation, and I am eagerly anticipating the positive impact these two individuals and other handlers will undoubtedly have in their new roles and for the country yearning for progressive governance.

Meanwhile, President Tinubu is a futurist, go-getter, and achiever. He has zero tolerance for unproductive minds and incompetent hands. President Bola Ahmed Tinubu seems to know his onion--he taps into some of the best in our collective talents as his handlers.

President Tinubu is an exceptional politician who has consistently demonstrated his tactful leadership skills and ability to maximize Nigeria's abundant human and natural resources. He has adeptly steered through favorable and challenging situations, always striving to bring out the best in the nation and its people. Nigeria owes its forward momentum to his visionary leadership, and he continues to be a highly respected figure in politics and beyond.

Unequivocally, the Buhari administration's failure to appoint the most qualified Nigerians as its handlers ultimately hindered its overall success. Most of Buhari's handlers were "analog technocrats--the square pegs in round holes." Despite some achievements in infrastructural development and honest efforts at reforms and geopolitical restructuring, these efforts fell short of the mark. Good products need good PR to be generally acceptable to potential customers and the public. Buhari failed in this portal.

Sadly, the disorganized and ineffective management of the previous administration under President Muhammadu Buhari was unacceptable and hindered his government's progress. As a committed and loyal Buharist, witnessing such incompetence of the handlers squandering away the most significant opportunity to reorder Nigeria left me extremely upset. We cried to high heaven when we saw the adrift nature of the twilight administration of former President Muhammadu Buhari. Buhari's handlers were his government's encumbrance--they failed him to make history, and history will be unkind to Buhari's nonchalance and handlers. The success or failure of success of Buhari's administration should be a big lesson for Tinubu's government. President Bola Ahmed Tinubu's government and future administrations must prioritize merit and competence in their appointments to ensure success and progress for the nation.

As patriotic Nigerians, we repose our renewed hope in PBAT's competence and strategic leadership. Futuristically, we must hold PBAT and his handlers accountable and actively work towards a brighter future for our beloved country. As divinely posited and prophesized by the revered Pastor William Folorunso Kumuyi, "Nigeria will rise again among the comity of the nations," a prophesy and affirmation we all chorus and optimistically say AMEN.
