DEFECTIONS EXPOSE NIGERIAN POLITICIANS HYPOCRISY AND SHAMELESSNESS BY Chidiebere Nwobodo

Opinion Politics




It’s no longer news that Sen. Godwill Akpabio has left the PDP for APC. As
surprising and perverse the decision may be,  as democrats, we don’t have
any option but to respect his fundamental right of association and
expression, as enshrined in the constitution. I will not call Sen. Akpabio
a “looter” simply because he left PDP for a fractured and demystified APC,
exactly the stereotypical manner a Buharist would have reacted, had it been
the opposite.

Those Buharists who have been threatening fire and fury against Senate
President Bukola Saraki and his fellow defectors, are yet to raise their
voices against this development. They have not told us again how “illegal”
and “unprincipled” for a senator to abandon the party that brought him to
office and transfer the mandate to his new party.

The human “rice” activist and legal face of APC, Femi Falana has maintained
hypocritical silence, because this one favoured APC. The ugly whore and
demented buffoon in the Villa called Lauretta Onochie, who has ridiculed
the office of the president by her crude utterances, unbefitting of her
office, is yet to “list the sins” of Sen. Akpabio, like she did against
Saraki. Adams Oshiomhole had suddenly gone mute, and also suffered partial
amnesia, that made him forgot that a senator “cannot take a crown that
belongs a family to another”, as he shamelessly stated against Saraki. The
old nincompoop called Sen. Abdullahi Adamu is yet to disturb our peace
again, on why “Akpabio must face the consequences of his wrong decision”.

Like a moonlight story, scripted to reflect the world of fantasy, the
“saintly” party called APC, condescended so low to the extent of coming to
the dens of “looters” to woo one of its “gang” leaders, to join them in the
“sanctuary of the righteous”. What an irony! Sen. Akpabio has given his
life (defection) to Christ (APC). He is a “new creature” (APC member) and
old things (corruption charges), have all passed away! He has been baptised
by John De Baptist (Bola Ahmed Tinubu), and has been given a new garment of
“integrity” by no other person but custodian of it called Mohammadu Buhari.

By virtue of being “born again” (APC member), god of APC—President Buhari
has redeemed Sen. Akpabio of all his sins and that of his forefathers.
Ancestral curses have no hold on Sen. Akpabio again as a result of mark of
holiness (broom), in front of his abode. Even his potential iniquities have
all been forgiven in advance. PDP members have taken solace in their new
found members, who came back from a wild goose chase in the wilderness,
like the proverbial prodigal sons that wasted their fathers wealth.

The returnees confessed they thought that they were running from snakes in
PDP, but ended up in the coven masked as the APC, where venomous Pythons,
cobras, anacondas, scorpions and crocodiles were bitting and stinging each
other to death. They realized that they went into unholy alliance with
sadists, tyrants, ethno-religious bigots, death merchants and
megalomaniacs, who believes so much in absolute power, not for the good of
the country but persecution and oppression of political opponents cum
critics.

Sen. Akpabio’s defection has also exposed high level of political naivety,
gullibility and unbelievable hypocrisy amongst APC e-rats. A club that lost
its Ronaldos, Messis, Neymars, Bales, Mbappes, Modrics, etcetera, in a free
transfer market to its main rival (PDP), has rolled out drums to celebrate
the signing of Benzemas, Ighalos, Baloguns of this world, as if the club
(APC) has won Champions league. They forgot that their new signings are
exiting their old club (PDP), because they’re afraid of competing for
jerseys with the new world class players, with million
