Nigeria: 3rd termism

Chippla's Weblog and David Ajao both comment on the ongoing debate around a third term for President Obasanjo. Ajao writes..”Like the proverbial cat with nine lives, this menace called “Third Term” has refused to die. It only simmers a little, and re-surfaces again, rearing its ugly head in the political terrain of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.”

    Third term- a call up for Arm
    it is a pity that Obasanjo have allowed sycophants to cajoled him into making effort to “sit tight” in the name of the so called third term. but unfortunately Nigeria is not Uganda or Togo and the gain of desecreation of Constitution to extend once rule will not last and it will be resisted Violently by Nigerians.Obasanjo and his sycophants is hoping to use the international Goodwill and the heavy acquired USA military Weaponry to suppress any uprising. but they surely fail.
    there is need for international Community to take this third term issue serious. they should stop listening to hypocrises, lies and Deceits that Obasanjo is feeding them with about the exact Situation in Nigeria today- this is because nobody could predict the enormity of the Bloodshed that will follow the desecreation of Nigerian Constitution for selfish reasons and destrutive Ambition- who knows it could be like or worse than Ruwandan genocide!
