ATIKU'S RETURN TO PDP, A BAD OMEN?
The anticipated return of the Turakin Adamawa back to the fold of his old party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), is ominous and portends a great danger both to the party and its faithfuls? His return if it goes through will fracture the party along his followers and those of other competing forces in that unholy alliance called PDP? It signals an impending cataclysmic upheaval that will see the demise of the self-acclaimed largest party in Africa? His return will unnecessarily over-heat the internal polity and cohesiveness of the ruling party and should have been avoided by the party honchos; assuming they have the wherewithal to so do? But the spineless Ogbulafor led executive are not a match to the Adamawa political bulldozer who could readily deploy his PDM political machinery to get them out of the way? Icheoku says, the planned return of former Vice President Alhaji Abubakar Atiku back to the PDP is sincerely speaking, a thing which that party does not need at this time it is trying to put its house finally in order and with the 2011 elections so close by the corner? Instead of strategising for the 2011 elections and nurturing the remaining last one year of their Yar'Adua-Jonathan administration, the PDP will now be forced to start making rooms available for the accommodation of the Atiku Abubakar led political-harlots returnees. But does the PDP need these people that much as to allow them back and unconditionally? How about those other dissatisfied members who never took a hike but remained behind to help fix what was broken? Why unnecessarily reward this prodigal son who could not successfully start out on his own with his new Mega Party only to now run back to the crib, called PDP? Afterall the party have proved that they can do without Atiku's band of charlatans, having successfully stolen the elections in 2007 without their help? The fact that Atiku Abubakar left the party when he did and under the circumstances in which he did, went over to the Action Congress, lost his Adamawa State in the 2007 elections, paid that infamous visit to Obasanjo at Otta Farm, tried forming the so called Mega Party but could not bring it to fruition; and suddenly is now making a b-line back to the PDP shows that the man has no real core or moral value; and is not a leader anyone could follow into battle? He should have been discarded for what he is - a political piece of garbage!Icheoku queries how Atiku plans to explain his political harlotry to his many followers, admirers and party faithfuls; some of who missed out on several juicy opportunities just because they were branded Atiku's people and left in the cold of the Nigerian winner-takes-it-all political bonanza? Now their effort will be rubbished and wasted on the account of the greed of a man, singularly driven by his inordinate ambition to rule Nigeria at all cost and by any means necessary? That Abubakar Atiku is eminently corrupt is also well established, - one of his accomplice, former United States Congressman William Jefferson, is currently doing time in a United States penitentiary for his corrupt practices allegedly in conjunction with Abubakar Atiku of Nigeria? Atiku was also fingered in so many other cases of bribery involving several senior government officials such as the Siemens $12 million dollars and the Halliburton's $180 million dollars bribery; admitted that none of the cases have been conclusively prosecuted? It is also on record that Atiku allegedly brought into America the sum of $40 million dollars from questionable sources during the time he was vice president of Nigeria? But why is Nigeria cursed with abundance of such men with big itchy-fingers as their leaders? Anyway, as 2011 approaches, it is becoming very obvious that Nigerians will be forced to choose between the devil IBB and the deep sea Atiku; and as always they will choose the lesser of the two evils! Like the biblical Jonah, a whale might be sent to rescue them in the deep sea Atiku but the devil IBB will certainly get them screwed up the more. Icheoku therefore says, if Atiku is being readied as a challenger to Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida in 2011, then some of us might be persuaded to forgive his shortcomings as anybody will be better than the bloody evil-genius and prevent him from returning back to Aso Rock? In a way, our mantra is, 'anybody but Babangida in 2011' and Atiku might as well be that person? If Atiku is the secret stop Babangida 2011 joker, then on that ground alone, Icheoku is on board and will throw our support his way! Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida is evil and rightly enough he describes himself as the evil-genius. Icheoku calls on every sane Nigerian to work tirelessly to stop "Project IBB 2011". It is a national security matter and for the interest of one Nigeria, it is a call that must be heed by all true Nigerians to deny this murderer what he twice sabotaged and denied others:- first in his 1983's coup against President Shehu Shagari and 1993 his June 12th MKO Abiola election annulment? Still in doubt, ask where is Dele Giwa, Mamman Vasta, Gideon Orkar, Gloria Okon etc and ask yourself if you want to rehabilitate this kind of animal whose hands is dripping with Nigerians blood? So, if Atiku is what it takes to actualize stopping IBB, Icheoku says he is the lesser evil and a more tolerable option, admitted it is not so savory? Icheoku says, if Atiku is the answer to the question of what to do with 'Babangida 2011', then our portal is available to help make Abubakar Atiku's 2011 presidency possible!
