The end of APC’s fabricated momentum

I HAVE news for APC stalwarts. You don’t win an election in Nigeria by being the champion of social media. You don’t win by renting crowds to fill up your rallies.

NOTHING better encapsulates the pathetic nature of the current re-branding of Muhammadu Buhari than his sudden appearance in a black western suit; something that has not happened before.  This window-dressing just won’t cut it.  Given his sectarian antecedents, Buhari will be hard-pressed to convince anyone that he is western in any way, shape or form.  Indeed, in this era of rampant Islamic fundamentalism and insurgency, a Buhari presidency would close the doors of many Western interests to Nigeria in our hour of need.
