When this year Buhari said he would pay 30k minimum wage, you clapped and leered at those who you called wailers, those who dislike his directionless and clueless rule.
He framed the law. You clapped and harangued the National Assembly to pass it into law quick quick.
When the National Assembly passed it into law and the President assented, you began to rejoice and sang the jingles of Change.
When he started backsliding to criminally break the law of the minimum wage by setting up a committee to make “consequential adjustments”, you did not even notice, perhaps you don’t even know he was committing impeachable criminal offense by attempting to change the provision of the law. He has no power to change, adjust, modify or amend in law whether consequentially or inconsequentially.
When you allowed to hijack the duties of the legislators to amend the minimum wage law, he shamed you by backsliding into saying he can’t pay the 30k, but you didn’t notice because you lack shame and sense. You lack sense to see that your hero is so empty that he ruled for five years without knowing the state of the economy until after he signed a minimum wage law.
When you accept his law breaking clueless antics of changing the law of 30k to much lesser figures, you started clapping and yelping in order to deceive others into thinking he was doing a great thing.
While you were rending the air with your shameless shouts, he shamed you the second time by announcing that he could not pay without sacking workers massively.
You still believe he is working fine. I can’t see how a man who is unaware of the state of the economy after five year as president can change anything. I can only figure out a figure head appointing thieves, dead people, and his family members into positions.
He can’t see the connection between his inability to fight corrupt and the light fingered ilks he stuff his government with. He assumes there is light everywhere since the put his house on 24/7 generator and explained the noise it makes as the noise of the new factory he commissioned in Aso Rock when he was a young Commissioner of Petroleum.
The man is light year away from his surroundings and reality. What a 21st century leader. He got everything wrong. He did the right thing wrongly and did the wrong thing wrongly. And he never bother to check or to evaluate because he claims to be too busy doing nothing besides putting on weight and developing puffy cheeks like a young bride.
The troubles in the land never worry him except they remember to make him read to us in his smug self entitled sluring slow motion voice:” I am awaya of masses suffering: Nigerians will suffer more before they begin to smile by 2030.”
