The world does not need Buhari again in anyway

I told you so. About ten days ago, I revealed to our great party, the
All Progressive Congress (APC), and fellow Nigerians that the world
is against President Muhammadu Buhari’s second term bid. I
asserted that the opposition is coming from “influential leaders
within our major allies, including Great Britain, the United States,
France, Germany, Russia, China, Canada, etc.” I added “that the
emerging consensus among these nations is that President
Buhari’s second term ambition lacks in cogency. They point to
Buhari’s failing health, lack of clear vision, lack of intellectual
capacity, an apparent pattern of torpor, nepotism, wanton killings,
disregard for the rule of law, and a growing sense of disunity and
uncertainty in the land, among many failings.”
However, both the Presidency and the Hon. Minister of Foreign
Affairs, Mr. Geoffrey Onyeama, vigorously countered my account.
According to Onyeama, “The international community is very
supportive of President Buhari. As you can see President Buhari
has transformed our relationship with foreign countries and also
the perception of Nigeria by foreign leaders.”
But the hard truth is trickling in. The trending report by Financial
Times where US President Donald Trump blatantly referred to
Buhari as “lifeless” is a partial testimony. In short, my sources
within the White House confided that Trump believes that Africa
has the potential to be fully independent, “but the countries over
there need to get their act together. They need good leaders who
can get things done. Nigeria, for example, has huge, huge
resources and can do much better than what is going on over
there.” This view is popular among the Western nations. I also
gathered that some of the world leaders plan to visit or talk to
Buhari soon.
Perhaps, leadership is contingent upon the environment. What is
good for America may not be good for Nigeria and vice versa. But
if any relationship with the outside world is a factor in solving
Nigerian problems, President Buhari has no business touching the
APC nomination form. Further, the Financial Times does not speak
for the world, quite alright, but its report is a part of the pressure
from the international community that will continue to mount as the
months leading to the 2019 go by. Such global campaign is
expected to be more robust than what President Goodluck
Jonathan faced in 2015.

Is it right for Federal Government to dialogue and compensate killer herdsmen and bandits?
