Query: why must these guys in APC think that they alone know how to ferment trouble or do they think they are scarring anyone by their continual boastful braggadocio to rain down mayhem on Nigeria come 2015? Why must a people bereft of any convincing ideas or superior and better political messaging, now resort to threatening the same people and country they want to preside over? What happened to marshaling a more compelling argument why Nigerians should rather vote for the APC instead of continuously threatening to visit mayhem on the country should the inevitable of their not getting power happen?
Icheoku says the days of operation "we tie, do or die, my way or the highway" politics of reclamation is since over and the APC needs to get this. What Nigerians need and are now practicing is politics of ideas and how to move the process and country forward; so may the superior idea triumph in 2015 rather than destructive forces.
From their biggest man Bola Tinubu who promised Nigerians to "rig and roast", to a presidential candidate Muhammadu Buhari's threat to soak the land with the blood of those "dogs and baboons", to Rivers State Governor Rotimi Amaechi who has now similarly threatened anarchy with the establishment of a parallel government, to yet another presidential candidate Abubakar Atiku who has called upon Nigerians to rise up in arms against the government under the guise of defending themselves against Boko Haram, as if Nigeria is already a lawless state without state apparatus to deal with such criminality. Now their Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State has also thrown his feather-weight behind the call to violence and you wonder if fermenting violence in 2015 has now become part of the agenda of the APC.
But like the Americans say, if it quacks and walks like a duck, it might be a duck; so the APC should be held responsible for any violence that erupts during the 2015 election. It is now increasingly apparent that only the APC have a reason to cause violence in 2015 because they, like the biblical two women before King Solomon, are prepared to destroy that which they cannot get? Like with every desperado, they are nearing desperateness in their hunger, quest and pursuit of power in Nigeria and they are beginning to see its elusiveness and are now resorting to intimidation by threat of violence to try and coarse Nigerians? Otherwise why would anyone wish to destroy something he truly loves and cares for except the professed love is not genuine.
Icheoku asks for general restraint and hereby calls for any remaining voice of reason in the APC, to please caution their people against making such inciting boastful and arrant threats. Icheoku is emphatic that no one is going to rig the election of 2015 and the APC knows this, but are merely trying in vain, to cause apprehension in the country and scare away would be voters from the polls. Further, no Nigerian blood deserves to be shed because of an election or struggle for vain power and any body who shades Nigerians' blood in 2015 will leave to regret it. Enough of all these bomb-throwing rhetoric by the APC chieftains and you wonder if their chieftains are this unguarded, what would their unleashed underlings do to innocent Nigerians? Icheoku says what these APC honchos are vomiting and preparing to do is indeed very pitiful and condemnable.
