The former Governor of Osun State, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola said he is disappointed in the administration of President Muhammed Buhari, which he said is more scaring than civil war recorded in the country years ago.
Penpushing reports that, Oyinlola, who was in the forefront of campaign for Buhari in 2015 general elections, recalled that he was warned against supporting his(Buhari) Presidential ambition, but thought because he (Buhari) was a former military head, he was going to eradicate Boko Haram in six months but lamented that nothing has changed.
The former Governor who ruled Osun State between 2003 and 2010 under the banner of Peoples Democratic Party(PDP), and later defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC) shortly before the 2014 governorship election in the state, expressed his disappointment on Buhari while speaking on British Broadcasting Corporation(BBC) Yoruba programme
Penpushing further reports, the former Military Governor of Lagos State recalled that when he took Buhari project of becoming the Nigerian President to former President Olusegun Obasanjo, he (Obasanjo) expressed doubt over his (Buhari) competence.
“I participated in the process that brought in Buhari as President. We made several promises to Nigerians but we are yet to fulfill any. One of many cases is security. We thought because he (Buhari) was a former military head, he was going to eradicate Boko Haram in six months but nothing has changed’, Oyinlola noted.
“Obasanjo told us that he knows Buhari, and not sure he could lead Nigeria well, but we felt because he is a former military head, he should be able to tackle insurgence. Since we gained independence, and civil war, there’s no moment more scaring like what we have now
Penpushing also reports that, the former Governor lamented that till date Buhari led administration could not tackle security challenges rocking Nigeria, despite all promises made before getting to power.
“The newspaper reports we read daily capture death and abduction of people. Already, parents are not interested in sending their kids to school. Insecurity has not gone worst like this since 1999,” the ex-governor said.
Penpushing reports that, Oyinlola, who has returned to the People Democratic Party(PDP), also joined other citizens to advocate for restructuring, pointing out that, amazingly Buhari is acting ignorantly about all he promised in 2015.
“I am surprised that we have not seen difference. We promised the southerners restructuring but I am surprised that Buhari is acting so ignorantly about restructuring now. We lobbied them with restructuring promises. We are seeking forgiveness from God over these matters”, Oyinlola stated
