20 people died yesterday in yet another Boko Haram attack in the past month, but did Nigeria react or get upset? No. Instead we were gawking over the new official pictures of Buhari and his VP.
And in the midst of the bombing, there is now a potential new proposal to remove military check points across Nigeria. Did Nigerians complain given that the Nation is still unstable? Or ask how it could help the fight against Boko Haram? No…we just gawked and stared at more pictures…
And I must admit the pictures are beautiful. Bayo.O is doing a good job shooting the President from all angles. Every picture is filled with so much color and mesmerizing detail that drives a poignant story, but I worry that Nigerians are too distracted … that we are still stuck in election mode.
I mean at this rate, Buhari will fart and Nigerians will still praise him for producing Natural gas! The same things that caused uproar amongst Nigerians yesterday are treated with silence today.
And I wonder, did we vote for change or did we change after we voted? #ObservationNoBeCrime
