You have sat too long for any good you have been doing lately… Depart, I say; and let us have done with you. In the name of God, go! – Oliver Cromwell

The night after the first Nyanya bomb blast, the BBC’s Nkem Ifejika tweeted about the “security measures” that were being implemented in Nyanya. My immediate reaction upon seeing that tweet was to shout about the security risk presented by this scenario. Only seventeen days after, my fears have been realised.

Last night, in exactly the same spotanother bomb went off, and more Nigerians have died, needlessly. As I type this, there has been nary a word from the Presidency regarding this, not even one of the old platitudes that we have gotten so sick of hearing. That these people chose the very same day that the Prez finally, and publicly, talked about the missing Chibok girls, says something. Maybe, just maybe, the Prez was right in that message delivered in December 2011. Maybe, just maybe, there are Boko Haram members in his cabinet.

But all of that does not change the fact that in every single job on God’s-green-earth, you will have opposition. Part of what shows competence for the job, is the ability to overcome that opposition. When you routinely fail to overcome that opposition, it tells us that you cannot do the job.

Mr President, I was one of the organisers of the Enough is Enough protests in which we asked for your right to become the President of this country. That support has now been completely withdrawn. I will quote Mr. Cromwell here: you have sat in Aso Rock too long for any good you have been doing lately, in the name of God, go!
