Go, tell the Hyenas and the Jackals that PDP is back – Ndukwe


Following victory of the Makarfi-led Caretaker Committee of the country’s main opposition party, the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, at the Supreme Court on Wednesday, July 12, 2017, a member of the party and one of the most consistent and prominent critics of the Buhari- led APC administration, Jude Ndukwe, took to his Facebook page to celebrate the victory with a powerful, emotional, yet, inspirational poem full of biblical metaphors. 

While the poem eulogised all those who had carried on the functions of an opposition party even as individuals despite the many inconveniences associated with such a venture using biblical champions as metaphors for them as the case lasted, Ndukwe ended up predicting “that faith will replace fear, and rejoicing will replace weeping, (and) that justice and peace shall reign again in the land (since) Nigeria will rise again, because PDP is back, (and) power returns to the people” 

Below is the poem in full: 


Go, tell them
That for every lion there’s a Samson 
For every bear, there’s a David.
Let them know that
For every Pharaoh, there’s a Moses 
For every famine, there’s a Joseph 
Go into the Rock 
Tell them 
That for every broken wall of our nation 
There’s a Nehemiah 
For every wickedness, there’s an Esther 

Let them know that for every Red Sea 
There’s a rod 
For every lion in the den 
There’s a Daniel 

Go, tell them. 
Let them know That for every prophet of Baal 
There’s an Elijah 
And for every Judas there are eleven others 
Go, tell them, let them know 
That there are still many prophets of 
The Living God who haven’t 
And will never bow to Baal 

Go, run quickly, tell the lion king 
That Elisha is around 
And that Joshua is ready 
Fully apparelled for battle 
To take the nation back to the people 
The people of God 

Go, tell the hyenas and the jackals 
Those who called their citizens dogs and baboons 
That about this time in 2019 
‘A seah of the finest flour will sell for a shekel and two seahs of barley for a shekel at the gate of Nigeria.” 
Tell them that faith will replace fear 
And rejoicing will replace weeping 
That justice and peace shall reign again in the land. 

You, yes, you, just go, go and tell them 
That come 2019, Nigeria will rise again 
Because PDP is back, power returns to the people. 

Jude Ndukwe is the former Special Adviser (Media) to Ex-Aviation Minister, Chief Femi Fani- Kayode.
