Okupe on Chibok Girls: “rape … common in war”; Ola Idowu’s “Buhari Must Tread Cautiously”, et cetera

December 15, 2014



The “holidays”, or any idea of it, is now off; I’ve been on holidays, anyway, since November 1. With Buhari’s candidacy presenting a tantalizing prospect of a shot at redemption and cleansing for Nigeria and her citizens, everything I come across that concerns the elections that I believe should be digested will be posted with the hope of sharing it with my readers from around the globe. I do not intend to write anything because all I need to say and have to say about Buhari has been said in the re-blogged 2011 essay [].

“There is no time limit for returning the girls alive,” – The Premium Times.

“People do not understand the burden this president is bearing. He’s like Jesus Christ. He’s bearing the burden of everybody,”

“The issue of Chibok girls was (an) emotion(al) tragedy but it is a tragedy that we must bear with fortitude … issues such as rape, murder and other atrocities were common in war.”

The last two quotes are courtesy, but all three are from Medical Doctor-turned itinerant go-fer to presidents, past & present, Doyin Okupe, who always reminds me of the character “Uncle Max” in The Sound of Music when the von Trapp family was about to escape from Hitler’s surrogates. He told the singing von Trapp children: I will miss all the money I would have made!




“Seven social sins: politics without principles, wealth without work, pleasure without conscience, knowledge without character, commerce without morality, science without humanity, and worship without sacrifice.”
Mahatma Gandhi
