All these are but inquiries of a curious mind and at best the "what ifs" and Monday night quarterbacking on the current development in Kogi State Nigeria as no one, including Audu Abubakar, had any inkling that his end-time was this near. Icheoku says it is a very good weapon of the Almighty that he stealthily picks off whoever he desires and whenever he so wishes, without let or hindrance or any time to plead please God wait just a minute as am not quite ready yet. But humans do not learn from life experiences otherwise certain actions would have been more circumspect rather than the usual acting and living like one will never die.
Audu Abubakar was the fielded APC governorship candidate in the just conducted but determined inconclusive Kogi State governorship election. His candidacy was rather a rude shocking surprise to many as it was everything contradictory to APC anti-corruption mantra. This was a former governor indicted and standing trial for money laundering and embezzlement of State funds by EFCC, yet President Muhammadu Buhari and his APC choose to ignore that fact of grave consequence and fielded him as their party's candidate, in their very selective prosecution of their war on corruption. But unbeknownst to them, the only one above all human frail and fallibility knows best and has now acted to end it all. Former Governor Audu Abubakar was 68 years old.
Laughably though, were all the teaming "men and women of God" who pry in the business of retailing scripture and performing miracles; and who also claim to see tomorrow but who were blindsided by Audu's sudden death as it never appeared in their Ouija board or is it tarot cards? Icheoku says if a prophet could not and did not see something as huge as this guy's death or "God" did not reveal it to them, what else would be visible to them? But a very gullible society plagued by 419 con-men masquerading as men and women of God, would not give a damn about this catastrophic failure of the "anointed" ones in not prophesying Audu Abubakar's sudden death.
Icheoku recalls that the deceased promised to 'Bring Back' his looted ten billion Naira and reinvest same in the State if he wins the election? Now many people are wondering if he remembered to leave instructions to his bankers so that they could still effect the same. It appears Audu Abubakar was laboring under the weight of some debilitating illness for quite some time now. But regrettably, the Nigerian "big-man" syndrome or rather factor, which sees every bloated person as a sign of being rich, possibly foreclosed his seeking appropriate medical advise and adequate treatment before now. From his puffy look, possibly he had a heart condition or liver disease; but without an autopsy, cannot be conclusive and the real cause of his death might never be known. Like good people whose goodness are often interred with their bones, Audu Abubakar's plans for Kogi State this third time around, the real cause of his death as well as whatever he previously stole and promised to return and reinvest back in Kogi State shall now all be buried with him. Adieu Governor Audu Abubakar.
