Who are the ‘watchers’ mentioned in the tweet attributed to Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola last Sunday?

Why am I not surprised? Something told me you were going to comment on the subject.

Have I become so predictable to you?

Let’s just say I know the kinds of things that tickle your fancy. I knew you were following the elections in Osun State, and looking for pieces that fit the different puzzles dominating the landscape.


When that tweet which was attributed to Interior Minister, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola about the activity of the watchers surfaced, I knew one of your moments had come.

But who are the watchers?

What makes you think I know them or about them?

Something tells me that you do

You’re mistaken but I will suggest that you go to the source from where the material was lifted

It’s from the biblical book of Daniel, right?

Yes, it is.

Please before I go to the book of Daniel to read more about the watchers, what’s your real interest in the watchers?

I’m not sure but the mere fact that there are other interested parties and participants in our political processes beyond the registered parties recognized by the Independent Electoral Commission (INEC), and those known to Nigerians generally, make me want to act more carefully about goings on in the polity, and beyond here.
