The problem now is not Patience Jonathan.
The problem is Citizen Patriot. She returned
from Germany and swore that she was never
hospitalized. She cursed those who insisted
on the truth and Citizen Patriot joined in the
curse-fest. Citizen Patriot prowled social
media, cursing civic-minded citizens, labelling
people haters of Nigeria and haters of the
first family in ignorant rants betraying his
equation of Nigeria with Nigeria’s mis-rulers.
Now she’s recanted and claims to be Nigeria’s
equivalent of Lazarus. No apologies. No
explanations for the barefaced lies. Citizen
Patriot, worse than Malcolm X’s house nigger,
is at work again, cursing haters of Nigeria i.e.
haters of the first family and bla and bla and
bla. Why can’t you guys just rejoice over her
recovery and miraculous healing? Don’t
bother trying to remind Citizen Patriot that he
was out here in September cursing those
who insisted on the truth of this illness. No
way to explain to Citizen Patriot that haters
only exist in his fevered mind and that those
he rails against actually understand how the
Nigerian establishment manufactured his
mind. I say if we find a way to re-educate this
mind, we may stand a chance in 2015 and
beyond. Those who hope to sustain the
status quo in 2015 and beyond have only one
weapon they rely on: Citizen Patriot’s mind.
