If you think Buhari will treat every Nigerian equally, maybe this short video clip which was recorded in one of his question and answer sessions of his visit to the United States may make you think otherwise. During his acceptance speech on May 29 this year, he said, ” I belong to everybody and to nobody.” Everyone celebrated this words of his. Is Buhari taking back his words? Has some political or northern lobbyist convinced him to do otherwise ? Is this why in his recent appointments, almost 99.9% of those appointed are from the northern part of Nigeria ? Time will tell us more. If ever Muhammadu Buhari does continue with this mentality, surely he is bound to fail. Surely he will not be the messiah we expected. Though some states might not have voted for him enmasse, but being the president of Nigeria, he should seek to unite every part of the country both those that voted for him and those that did not. This is the only way his leadership will be exceptional and one of its type in Nigeria. If he has been politically advised to do what he just said in this video clip, I pray and wish somebody he can listen to would talk him out of it.
I really hope the readers of this article won’t think I am biased with my statements here. I love Buhari as a person and more as Nigerian president. I do really want him to succeed. This is why I am concerned personally with this statement. A good government shouldn’t be seen to be divisive. He should be all inclusive irrespective of your divide. If at all he will love to favour those who voted for him more, as a thank you gift to them, he should be subtle about it. I expected more class and intelligence from him.
In his speech in the video below, he seemed to have spoken from both side of his mouth. Watch it carefully and meticulously and tell us what you think. Am I wrong ?
