This is how Buhari ‘failed’ Nigerians – Presidency opens up


– The presidency has dismissed claims that President Muhammadu Buhari failed Nigerians

– Lauretta Onochie, reply the allegation made by Dele Momodu, saying the president only disappointed criminals in the country

– Momodu had alleged that President Buhari, like the PDP, did not keep to his promises to citizens before he was elected into office

The presidency has reacted to a remark by a renowned journalist, Dele Momodu, who has claimed that President Muhammadu Buhari failed to deliver on his campaign promises.

In a tweet on Friday, January 8, Momodu has said that he opted for President Buhari in 2015 after the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) woefully disappointed the nation for 16 years in power.

The famed journalist noted that he chose Buhari as he was the best electable candidate at the time.

However, Momodu said he had to switch to Abubakar Atiku upon discovering that President Buhari has also failed Nigerians.

He said:

“I did not bring Buhari. I did what most reasonable Democrats would have done in the circumstance of PDP’s failure after 16 years in power by trying the next most electable candidate and when he failed tried the next, Atiku, and that is the essence and risk and flaw in Democracy!”

Reacting to this comment, Lauretta Onochie, a presidential media aide, said that the president only failed to dish out money to fraudsters.

She said on Twitter:

“He “Failed” because he won’t dish out cash for photos that can easily be obtained on Instagram and other picture apps.”

Meanwhile, the All Progressives Congress (APC) had lambasted the PDP for criticising the administration of President Buhari.

The ruling party in a statement released on Tuesday, January, and sighted by Bioreports said the lead opposition party lacks the moral authority to criticise the Buhari-led government.

John Udoedehe, the national caretaker committee secretary of the APC, highlighted the PDP’s alleged misdeeds when it was the country’s ruling party between 1999 and 2015.

Udoedehe said the PDP should keep quiet and bury its head in shame instead of reminding Nigerians of its “ignominious era”.

* Gives only one condition

Leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has finally agreed to drop the agitation for Biafran sovereignty.

The IPOB Leader simply said that if only President Muhamnadu Buhari whom he claimed and insisted was cloned could fluently address 20 select Nigeria youths in Fulfude native language of the President, he would then, apologize for spreading lies against the President, give up Biafra agitation and surrender himself for prosecution.

He added that he would no longer talk about Biafra if the President could engage some Nigeria youths  in live interactive session fielding questions from them and giving satisfactory answers instead of addressing a nation of over 200 million people in 12 minutes pre-recorded address once in a while.

Kanu claimed he was convinced that Nigerians were being deceived about the truth over the whereabouts of their President, a claim the federal government has however, severally dismissed as concocted and untenable.

Despite efforts by the interviewer to convince Kanu that Nigerian’s President was not fake saying he cracked jokes with him during an encounter in 2018, Kanu insisted on the contrary.

“I’m no longer asking for DNA test, I will stake Biafra and my life if the man in Aso Rock is Buhari. Let him simply address Nigerian youths in Fulfude, Buhari’s native language and take questions from them, then I will apologize and give up Biafra if he passes this test”.

Asked where Biafran boundary would begin and end if eventually granted, Kanu said anywhere their Indigenous women tie two pieces of wrappers is Biafra land.

He further identified the states to include all five South Eastern States and their six South South counterparts plus Kogi and Benue States.

He however, added that non-Igbo speaking parts of Benue and Kogi will not be corced to join Biafra, insisting that the people will be given the opportunity through referendum to decide whether or not they want to be part of Biafra.

Kanu further explained that the people of the various ethnicities that would form Biafran would decide their fate through referendum, although he failed to mention when and how the plebiscite would be conducted.

The interview was listened to by thousands of audience via various platforms including the Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
