A statement from the United States Government caught my attention this morning, I didn’t miss its emphasis and language, the statement said in reference to 2019 elections in Nigeria , “we are focusing on how to do a peaceful transition and a democratic transition for Nigeria”. I thought the language was unusual.
Previous governments of the United States, Obama for example would say, “we want to see free and fair elections in Nigeria”. Study the language closely, it is clear the Trump administration has transition at the heart of the 2019 elections. And what does transition mean, “the process of changing from one state or condition to another”. That’s the simple brutal truth.
I have no doubt the United States Government has regime change on its mind. The Security, Economy and Corruption in Nigeria has been bothering the US.
The US is not listening to the propaganda coming from Lai Mohammed’s table, it is listening to the international community and its partners. And this is what the International Community is saying, according to IMF Nigeria has become poorer under Buhari.
Transparency International says, Nigeria has become more corrupt under Buhari. According to CNN the kidnap of the Dapachi girls was a national disgrace. Security challenges has become worst under Buhari.
Simply put, Nigeria’s dilapidated state has become a destabilizing factor in the West African sub region and that is a major concern for the United States Government.
With Boko Haram rejuvenated and armed Fulani Herdsmen terrorizing and slaughtering whole communities, Nigeria has become a potential hot bed for the recruitment and the launch pad for terror across the world.
Under Buhari’s government Nigeria has become a direct security threat to the interest of the United States on the African continent. Another 4 years of Buhari from 2019 to 2023 might prove to expensive and too risky , it’s little wonder therefore, why the US government has refused to handover warplanes to the Nigerian Government after they have been paid for and bought, the US has no confidence in Buhari and wants to hand the weapons over to a new government in 2019
