Doyin Okupe, former special adviser on public affairs to President Goodluck Jonathan says there is no opposition party in the country.
Okupe based his reason on the problem of ethnicity which he described as a monster that has done more harm to the nation than anything else.
“Its simply ETHNICITY. This monster has done more harm to Nigeria as a nation more than anything else. Sometimes we confuse it with Religion. This is a sad fallacy. Ethnicity supersedes religion in terms of the evils holding the Nation down.
“MKO Abiola was a Muslim but when the chips were down Ethnicity shut him down both as a party man in NPN and as a President-elect.
Even more recently Asiwaju Tinubu national leader of the Apc though a staunch Muslim is more or less reduced to a southwest leader of Apc.
I recently read a piece ascribed to CAN where the latter was quoted as haven said “” Baru a northern Muslim insults his boss Kachukwu a southern Christian”. This is pure ignorance. I may not know what is going on in NNPC but certainly, it has nothing to do with religion.
“Not only the leadership or the elites in Nigeria are deceiving themselves and the populace, the followers or ordinary citizens are also engulfed in grand self-deception and delusion.
The media is worse and that is quite false.
“But i make bold to say this: For as long as the absence of TRUTH and INJUSTICE are the pillars on which this country rests, true progress and prosperity will be an illusion.
“Psalm 97 verse 2 says that the Almighty God’s Throne rests on the two pillars of Rigteousness and Justice thetefore any other throne that rests on Deception and injustice will not stand no matter how pious, hardworking or puritan its keadership or its people profess.
