What Obafemi Awolowo said about Buhari
Grand-daughter of late Obafemi Awolowo, Olufunke Awolowo has revealed what the late sage said about President Buahri during his life time.
Speaking on the performance of President Buhari, Olufunke who is a member of the Alliance for People’s Trust Party said:
“It’s is a long time I had been hearing about Buhari, so when he came back in 2014 with the Change mantra, I thought he had changed. That’s why, at a point, I personally campaigned for him because I believed it was time for change. “Someone even asked me if my late grandfather Chief Awolowo would’ve been happy to see me campaign for Buhari. I told the person that times had changed. But the past three years have shown that the man (Buhari) has not changed one bit; as far as he is concerned, nothing has changed.”
Commenting further she said:
“Buhari has failed, and that has taken my mind back to what Papa said about him a long time ago before he died. My grandfather said then that General Buhari did not have a full understanding of politics and governance. With what is happening in the country now, Papa was right.”
Reminded of the claims by the government of achievements made in various sectors of the economy, the pastor cum politician said it’s all propaganda. She said:
“Even President Trump for a while was almost deceived. You could see how angry the American President was with his reaction after that. Nigeria needs someone who is sincere and who means well.”
