“If anyone feels okay to follow a religious leader that uses bulletproof car or vest, that is their personal cup of tea, not mine.
However, many of those who are so quick to shout and analyze a pastor that uses bulletproof car will swallow their tongues when it comes to talking about the president under whose watch, security is so bad that killers enter churches and kill people in dozens, lives have become so cheap that churches, mosques, offices, roads, railways are no longer safe for whoever doesn’t have bulletproof vest or car.
The only reason I don’t own a bulletproof car today is simply because I can’t afford one, else I will get a bulletproof car, bulletproof vest, bulletproof doors and maybe bulletproof Ankara or boxers.
If not for bulletproof cars, Senator OBA and Apostle Suleman will be dead while government set up enquires or committee and a funny DPO may just come and kill the only culprit that could lead us to unravel the masterminds.
How did we become a bulletproof nation? How did bulletproof cars, doors, jackets become A-MUST-GET thing in Nigeria?
Politics did not allow some PDP members face the reality and criticize a PDP president on insecurity in their time, same way politics will not allow many APC members to face reality and criticize an APC president in the face of thousands of lives lost nearly daily to insecurity.
But such who will not tell government whose responsibility it is to protect our lives the truth are now quick to ask why a pastor should ride a bulletproof car and his followers doesn’t. Like I said earlier, it is their personal business to choose who to follow and how to follow them, not yours, if they choose to die, it is their die, not yours, abi?.
The one that you have responsibility to tell the truth is government, but politics wouldn’t allow many of us do so.
If as many known Buhari supporters that we have seen talking about Suleiman’s bulletproof car have used the same vigor and tempo to shout out on insecurity, those in power may have done better than they are doing now on security.
I won’t follow a religious leader or anyone at that when I know he is safe and I am not, but if I do, that as I said is a personal decision, not anybody’s business.
Everybody’s business is to shout the truth to the government’s hearing that we are not safe. All of us need bulletproof cars and lots of mobile police men to travel through some roads in Nigeria and shout that into the hearing of the government.
Let’s put the same energy we put into whether a pastor should have bulletproof car, into telling the government that the bulletproof car business is booming because people no longer feel safe without them. Now that it is becoming everyone’s concern.
Thank you for reading the long post”
