Contest of Idiocy Between Buharists and Tinubuists

I have come to realize that in today’s Nigeria, the only people more hopelessly idiotic than Buharists are Tinubuists. They have no mind or brain of their own. They unquestioningly gravitate to wherever Tinubu’s notoriously mercurial political pendulum swings. They support Buhari today ONLY because Tinubu tells them to do so. If Tinubu switches his loyalty from Buhari to Satan right at this moment, they would instantly become Satanists like pre-programmed robots. This is no vituperative hyperbole. These people are brainless automatons.

Have you had a chance to listen to Sanwo-Olu, the latest Tinubu stooge imposed on Lagos? Well, I have. The guy is a semi-literate, inarticulate, rattlebrained, brainsick buffoon. Yet he is the apple of the eyes of Tinubuists.
It’s no surprise that Buharists and Tinubuists are in a coalition of buffoonery to reelect a lifeless Buhari in 2019. When pigheaded Buhari fanaticism collides with sheepish Tinubu loyalty, it sparks the sort of combustible admixture of idiocy we’re seeing today, which disposes otherwise normal people to lend unthinking support to transparently incompetent people for political office. Thankfully, the rank of the Tinubuists is dwindling dramatically.

Buharists and Tinubuists certainly share the same slavish, uncritical, freakish mentality, but wait to see what will happen in 2023 (if Buhari wins a second term) when Buhari disappoints Tinubu by not "handing over" power to him--as he expects Buhari would. You'd be entertained by the fight that would break out between the two idiotic camps that are friends today. Save this somewhere.
