The volatile political atmosphere in Nigeria as at present should be giving Nigerians enough feast for thought. Because, as we say in Africa, there is no smoke without fire. This atmosphere is smoking hot. The political gas is already circulating in the air. Just light a match and everywhere will go up in flames.

Why is President Olusegun Obasanjo harassing his VP, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar. And he has put Atiku Abubakar on the defensive. Because, the man is now making public statements to refute many negative allegations being circulated against him. And the allegations are being made by loyalists of the President.

Who is afraid of Atiku Abubakar?

President Olusegun Obasanjo's godfathers in Minna are afraid of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar. And they are using the President and his agents to haunt Atiku Abubakar.
Why? Because, they are scared of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar becoming the next President of Nigeria. And their fears are as real as the HIV/AIDS pandemic. Because, the "evil genius" of the Nigerian Kleptocracy knows that Atiku can defeat him in the next Presidential Election. And he has conspired with the current President to frustrate, harass and embarrass Atiku to make him unpopular among the populace. And if possible to hang a crime on him that will disqualify Atiku from contesting the next Presidential Election in 2007.

The political gambit is to attempt to discredit Atiku and if they fail, they will amend the Constitution to favour a Third Term for President Olusegun Obasanjo. But, they will fail.

The "evil genius" is the worst political kleptocrat in Nigeria and President Olusegun Obasanjo and his EFCC are scared of him. But Atiku is not afraid of their sacred cow. And the sacred cow is afraid of Atiku. Because, Atiku can slaughter this sacred cow if given the power to do so.So the dice is cast.

The bloody battle royale of the 2007 Presidential Election in Nigeria is already being written.

Even here in Uganda, we have a president who has been in power for 20 years still not ready to leave power.
He has even changed constitution to allow him for third term.
