A FALSE IMPRISONMENT, AS TURAI TAKES UMARU HOSTAGE IN ASO ROCK?
Icheoku asks, what manner of a wife would be so mean and unfeeling to completely isolate her husband, son of another woman and wilfully deny a mother access to her dying sick son? And this her husband and son of the other woman is the president of a people, the people of Nigeria? Admitted he was not truly elected by the people of Nigeria, but was rather imposed on them by a cabal of very despicable Nigerians led by Aremu Olusegun Obasanjo. Only a Jezebel on steroids is capable of such a vicious mischievous behaviour; and Turai Yar'Adua is that deviant poster wife! Turai has totally cut off her deathly sick husband from the people who really care for him, and who really have his true and best interest at heart. People who would rather ensure that first things mattered most and should usually count first; and who would have persuaded Yar'Adua to free himself of the presidency and rigors of the office and go seek first proper health-care so as to rediscover his life, which is fast ebbing away. But Turai is having none of that, which begs the question, does she really love and care for Umaru? Call it 'Madness 101' if you like, that a mother was not allowed to see her ailing son, a son she carried for through a 9 months gestation period, laboured and gave birth to; weaned, raised and trained until he grew into an adult and married a 'wife' who is now proving to be a Nigerian Lady Macbeth. Ironically this unfeeling, callous Lady Macbeth Turai has some children of her own and would not pretend that she is oblivious of a mother's abiding love for her child? Icheoku only prays, that in the spirit of what goes around comes around, someday karma will keep its cruel date with this Turai so that she can personally feel the pain which she caused Umaru's mother; and may be forced to understand how painful it could be that a mother is prevented from seeing her own sick and dying biological child? And that mother is aged and travelled some 500 miles to rendezvous with her sick son but was denied, because a venomous wife ordered so. Which woman would so flagrantly pretend ignorance that another woman's love for her sick son is not deep or sincere enough and prevented her from visiting or seeing him, hooked up to series of life-sustaining contraptions and laying helplessly and hopelessly unconscious, like a cartoon character in an intensive care unit mobile medical trailer? The woman with so much bile in her and who does not have any milk of human sympathy flowing in her breast has a name, she is Lady Macbeth Turai Yar'Adua of Kastina, Islamic Sharia northern Nigeria; a soon to expire First Lady of Nigeria. Also she did not allow the vice president and acting president of Nigeria to see his boss, the ailing president? The president's own ruling party's henchmen and governors could not see the president because Turai said so; and likewise were the president's 150 million country men and women who "elected" and "hired" him as president, but who till today have not heard or seen their president for almost 100 days now? Icheoku asks, who then can see, or is qualified and important enough to be allowed to see President Umaru Yar'Adua, when these very important people including his biological mother, his vice and his party's chairman were refused access to him? Put in another way, is Umaru Yar'Adua now, a completely transmuted ghostly apparition which no naked eye can behold any longer; or will the eye that see him black-out or weep blood in place of tears? No matter how bad his condition or how unsightly his cocktail ailments may have transformed or disfigured him, why does Turai think she is the only one courageous and brave enough of standing his horrible sight? Does Turai Yar'Adua not know that what Turai can stand, Alhaja Yar'Adua can stand better and with greater poise? Something is certainly not right with this picture, an extreme measure denying a mother access to her dying son. It also does not matter the subterfuge or is Turai saying that her love for Umaru far surpasses that of Umaru's own biological mother, who breast-fed him? It is only in Nigeria, the world acclaimed land of many outrageous possibilities, where such unreasonable madness could take place and be tolerated; and where the presidency is fused with the president and is an entirely family affair. What an aberration that Turai, isolated, sequestered, quarantined, and technically 'kidnapped' and 'imprisoned' Nigeria's president, and her action is condoned?
