NIGERIANS BEWARE!…10 “ROPE-A-DOPE” MEASURES PDP CAN FLOAT ON BUHARI AND APC IN 2015! (1)
ALI VERSUS FOREMAN…Rope-a-dope strategy
Foreman came out of his corner in the second round expecting a toe-to-toe battle. Instead, Ali leaned back against the ropes and let Foreman flail away at him. He would taunt Foreman to come and get him and then lean back, only protecting his face. This made Foreman angry and later frustrated, as he gave his best shots to Ali’s midsection. But leaning on the ropes was sufficient to reduce the damage.
When Foreman did throw a punch at his face, Ali was able to lean back or move his head just enough that the blow missed or had little impact. This was a special skill Ali had through most of his career. He would often hit an opponent while pulling back to avoid a counterpunch.
If i am a member of the PDP today i will be panicky considering that there is now a real possibility to push us out of power in 2015.More so the opposition APC HAS SHOWN SO MUCH POLITICAL SAGACITY in recent days.Not only have they demonstrated to Nigerians that they have a system close to democracy in the way they produced Buhari but they have also picked his running mate smartly.They have thus put all the propaganda PDP was preparing on their expected muslim-muslim ticket to shame or sleep.Presently they are feeling happy and almost pompous like Foreman at the beginning of the fight in Zaire.But did Foreman win?
Above all the LIKELY VOTING PATTERNs and figures are not encouraging for GEJ and for PDP.Since 1999 PDP never had a real opposition to threaten its hold on power.This has led,it seems to certain mistakes of omission and in some cases of commission which have become albatrosses on the head of the party.And there are many of them!
Presently they are feeling happy,on top of the world and almost pompous like Foreman at the beginning of the fight in Zaire.And like Ali PDP LOOKS LIKE ITS GOING TO PIECES.But will it lose?Did Foreman win? Does APC THINK PDP WILL SURRENDER 15YRS OF RULE WITHOUT SERIOUS FIGHT?IF THEY WANT TO THINK PDP WILL JUST LIE AND BE ROLLED OVER THEN THEY HAVE ANOTHER THINK COMING TO THEM
The reason for this write-up is to consider ways of ensuring that APC WILL NOT FIND IT EASY TO HIJACK POWER from the PDP in 2015.Here are 10 of them
