Opinion: Buhari’s Zero-Sum Politics, By Bámidélé Adémólá-Olátéjú

In 2014, who would have thought we would become this afraid as a people? For a military general who fought the civil war, it is shameful to see the country so disunited and hopeless, with calls for disintegration getting louder under his watch. For many Nigerians, it is hard to see hope. People are angry, afraid and torn by the zero-sum politics of ‘I win, you lose’.

As insecurity mounts, the president seems unconcerned by the incestuous, outdated and leadership deprived security architecture he runs. This is effectively matched by his ambivalence to cultural imposition, turning a blind eye to ethnic chauvinism, incivility and violence, which are all dangerous and irresponsible. He does not care that it is a dangerous development to reduce politics and policy-making to a naked resource war.
