|President Jonathan and VP Sambo|
By this act to contract the services of a foreign political consultant, APC (All Progressive Party) has demonstrated their desperation for political power grab. This singular act has further entrenched PDP (Peoples Democratic Party) as the only political party to beat in the next election and beyond. By this act, APC has wittingly and selfishly surrendered their political sovereignty to a foreign consultant. How can we trust this political party with the leadership of our nation, without them (APC) surrendering our sovereignty to a foreign nation. By this act, APC has unwittingly galvanized Nigerians during this political process to take a closer look for a better alternative to their political (APC) agenda.
This step, taken by APC demonstrates tackiness and wackiness. It suggests a political party in a panic mode; that want the political power by all means necessary. This kind of ideology can never serve Nigeria well.
For a moment, think of an American political party contracting a consultant from Russia or even Great Britain to run their political campaign. That party would have had the result of the elections before the votes are even cast. And the results would not be good. A resounding rejection and a stinging electoral defeat. So shall it be in Nigeria, unless APC reverses this despicable act.
These desperate efforts at power grab are the traditions of the major players and the founding members of this Party. They turn to foreign sources in their efforts to achieve their self-centered goals.
Boko Haram Foreign Connection
|Boko Haram: The ragtags|
We must investigate and identify the sponsors of Boko Haram. We must track the sources of there finances and weaponry. Expose and stop them. These are the only viable surgical solutions to this madness. And a way to put an end to these ragtag twisted minded sociopaths and stop this mayhem. One way or the order, Nigeria shall have peace with or without them.

What we want from APC:
Nigeria wants a credible political opposition with ideologies and manifesto that win the hearts and minds of Nigerians. Let APC start talking and telling us about how to address pressing matters of importance to Nigerians. The unemployment problem, the state of Nigeria economy, the broken Nigeria healthcare and education system, the broken infrastructures, national insecurity, systemic corruption to name a few. We want to know where APC plans to take Nigeria, should we entrust them with the mandate at the ballot box. PDP is already taking up these challenges one step at a time. We need a credible opposition to offer us an alternative, if there is any. This APC may have failed us.
At Center for Modern Nigeria, we are increasingly concerned that APC may not be the opposition party that Nigeria needs at this time. That would make PDP (Peoples Democratic Party) a dominating party with ample time to consolidate there political dominance for the next 100 years. We don't want to see a monopoly of our democratic dispensations by one political party. Monopoly may lead to complacency.
Nigerians are better informed and are ready for the political foreign invasion in 2015. It will be an interesting season.
