Again, Are Peter Obi’s Supporters Losing Oxygen?
Are Peter Obi’s Supporters Losing Oxygen?
Like the breaking of every phantasmagoria, the futility of chasing a will-o-the-wisp soon becomes clear. It may take a while, but even the fog of illusion gives way for common sense when the blistering light of reality hits.
The Peter Obi presidential bid is a dream of which time has not come. Is it good to dream? Yes. But while dreaming, it is important for the dreamer to maintain consciousness and not lose himself in the vortex of his own fantasy.
Peter Obi’s presidential bid is an attempt at future possibilities. This is, perhaps, one of the merits of the current, but fast vanishing “Obidient fad.” Another merit is the mainstreaming of the south-east in the national political discourse. This is good. It has been quite a while since this happened.
But Peter Obi must be that politician. He must apply some logic, mute the vacuous praises of sycophants, and eschew personal interest for the greater good. He should be willing to sacrifice fleeting adulations for greater future glory and purpose.
