We are entering into a red zone of “Who Dares Wins” that sets demonstrators under the aegis of Endsarism ideology against the warring, bullish, combative, brutish, tyrannical and reactionary forces of Buhari’s dictatorial resume. Gaslighters, bombthrowers and pacifists are shoveling into the trenches in a macabre war of social media civil war.
The issue of lack of ideological anchor for our democratic dispensation has not received the attention it deserves so far largely because of the type of political leaders who have emerged to “deepen” democratic principles.
Let me quickly add that virtually all of us who are followers of these political actors are enmeshed in this act with slight modifications or what Nigerians refer to as “packaging”. Do not get me wrong: there is nothing wrong in having a figure as a political role model, hero or leader.
