UMARU YARADUA: - HE IS ALIVE!
It is official, he is still hanging in there - he is alive! Umaru Yar'Adua was sighted in Aso Rock Abuja-Nigeria today, Monday September 8, 2008. The rumoured demise of Nigeria's "illegitimate president" Umaru Yar"Adua is a ruse as his final call has once again been defered by his creator. How long this very sick weakling will live no one knows; but surely his days appears numbered. Umaru Yar'Adua is a very sick man! His health is not yet out of wood; it is still a cause for concern for many Nigerians who honestly and reasonably fear the catastrophy his sudden death will bring about in Nigeria. He is a northerner whose turn it is to rule Nigeria and his vice president is a southerner. Who will succeed him upon his eventual death is still subject to many debates as to whether the Nigerian constitution should prevail over a domestic political party's arrangement of the PDP which zoned the office to the north?
Anyway, whatever happens, it will be good that Umaru Yar'Adua make up his mind sooner than later. Icheoku ordinarily would have advised him to resign his office and face his failing health but not in Nigeria where men are so power drunk that they would rather be taken out in a gurney than willingly cede power to another.
Is it also possible that his religious inclination, being a Muslim, is stalling his ailing kidney's transplant? It should not be the case as a lot of Muslims undergo transplant surgery. This blogger knows of many Muslims particularly from Saudi Arabia who throng to University of California San Francisco (UCSF), medical center of excellence to replace their organs; so Umaru Yar'Adua you may look west to California for a solution to your health problems before it is too late! In the meantime, Nigeria has once again been spared the bullet of political anarchy with Umaru Yar'Adua's final emergence today at Aso Rock to perform investitures on his newly appointed military service chiefs!
