While the drama unfolds before our eyes, we will keenly observe while asking what to do. What are we observing? Is it the 21 Chibok girls who have been released? No, our attention is diverted elsewhere. Is it on the DSS and its raid on â€œcorruptâ€ judges? While we have an eye on that, we are captivated by another event unfolding.
This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the â€œvox populiâ€ simply because all we as a people can do is watch the drama unfold, our focus, the power play in Aso Rock and the interview granted by the First Lady Aisha Buhari. A lot of us already know what the first lady said with a pointed accusation about certain elements surrounding her husband who have consolidated power and are thus a power to themselves. Upon hearing that attempts were made to stop the BBC from airing the interview, our interest was piqued and as such we await the coming days with abated breaths hoping to know what was said and why it was said.
The controversy the interview has generated and the response it elicited from Mr. President belies the extent of the myriad of problems facing the country. However, we ask now, who knows the husband better than his wife? In the aftermath of her â€œoutburstâ€ will she be finally relegated from being the Presidentâ€™s wife? Are we going to see the first divorce in the history of the first family of Nigeria? Of course all our postulations are mere speculations and we will do well not to attempt to be â€œsensationalâ€.
We however will say what is â€œheld as a votive not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous.â€ Â This can however happen in a society that cherishes justice and upholds the rule of law.
