Nigeria’s pain and the lawlessness of Buhari’s extended leave – Cathy Omo


Buhari’s extended leave is unfair; bordering on illegal. Contrary to the prevailing rhetoric, a leader cannot go on leave until further notice simply because he handed over correctly.

He still earns a salary.

He is still being guarded, paid, fed, bathed and dressed by taxpayers.

We have had governors in Nigeria that started off like this. Some were on leave for almost a year, if not more. Was it Taraba state? I forget.

If you like, hand over to your secretary at your job and travel out for your leave. Tell your office you will extend that leave and will be back whenever you receive your test results.

Post some nice shots on Instagram eating a nice breakfast and receiving visitors.

Your employer will keep paying you for as long as it takes. As long as you handed over correctly. Trust me.

I wonder why I bother.

What we will not accept from Peter, they want us to celebrate with Paul. Now we have become Enemies of the State.

Thanks, Buhari: for helping the economy of Britain with our scarce forex. Abi are you spending naira there? Lucky you, you didn’t have to source from black market. Lucky you, your holiday was deemed a necessity and not a luxury like our children’s education and our businesses. Lucky you, you get so many high profile visitors from the same Nigeria you ran away from, also eager to spend some scarce taxpayer forex to take selfies with you.

Please stay as long as you wish. The cold in UK is much better for your health than the heat and mosquitoes back home. Your VP is doing a great job, save your energy so you can live long to attend all your children’s graduations from foreign universities.

See you in 2019.
