Why I Love President Muhammadu Buhari by DanseMacabre(m): 4:17pm On Aug 03, 2018
It's straightforward. In the buildup to the 2015 presidential elections, I vociferously campaigned for Muhammadu Buhari of the APC. I did this not because I really knew him as such, but at least his antecedents were common knowledge, etched into the fabric of Nigeria's history: the then General Muhammadu Buhari was vehemently against corruption, so much so that at the height of his war against corruption he attempted to forcefully extradite Umaru Dikko from London - by trying to smuggle him back to Nigeria in a shipping crate. This deed alone cemented Buhari in my mind as a no-nonsense leader: one deed among others such as his jailing of corrupt politicians when he first took over power, and of course the stories you heard from those who were old enough about his War Against Indiscipline (WAI) campaign - for the first (and perhaps only) time in our history, Nigerians queued for buses, in front of stores, at train stations etc.

Forget that my mom tried to dissuade me from my course by using two main arguments. The first (which I recklessly shoved aside with impatience as the typical angst of a Southern Christian against a Northern Muslim attempting to put a Southern Christian out of office) was that Buhari was an unrepentant religious fundamentalist, and the second (which I'm slowly coming to believe, with the rumours of his government being hijacked by a cabal and the resultant actions speaking for themselves) was that he wasn't really the brains behind the campaign against indiscipline and corruption. That Tunde Idiagbon - Buhari's then deputy - was really the brains behind the policy.

I used this latter argument to reinforce the fact that it indeed appears that Ol' Bubu isn't the one in charge of his government. I do not choose to believe that Buhari is the one making all these horrendous, rule-of-law-defying, legislature-ignoring, anti-people, corruption-glorifying decisions that this government has sadly since become infamous for. the Buhari I know, the much touted anti-corruption messiah would at the very least have suspended Kemi Adeosun as Minister of Finance pending when she clears her name on allegations of certificate forgery. If you notice, I used this as the least example because it is least among the other weighty scandals this administration has been involved in.


To cut this story short, why I have indeed come to love Buhari is that simply, in Nigerian parlance, the guy no just send. I no know if na the ear problem wey dem say dey worry am (in which case if true, might just make this discourse futile), but the guy dey make like say him no dey hear anything wey Nigerians dey talk. His lopsided appointments o, oho! His Chief of Army Staff buy properties wey him entire pension and gratuity no fit afford o, come defend himself say na snake wey him dey sell o, oho! Him service chiefs apparently dey overwhelmed by the spate of insecurity in the country, comot them put new ones o, oho! Him Inspector General of Police deliberately flout him order to go Benue go flush killer herdsmen o, oho! Him Minister of Finance allegedly (with ample proof) forge her NYSC certificate o, oho! Him don spend almost half of him tenure on medical vacation for London when him budget billions for Aso Rock Clinic (wey the First Woman wey dey ze oza room don clear us say no even get basic painkillers) o, oho! Him son wey no get any handwork dey drive super bike wey cost pass hundred million o, oho!


Him know say Nigerians in the long run na cowards wey go just shout, para, rant for social media, all huff and puff, so him dey deliberately shun them.

That's why I love my president.



P.S If by any chance the president has a debilitating ear infection that doesn't allow him hear Nigerians' shouts; or if the amnesia he was rumoured to have been diagnosed with back on his first London missionary journey is real and makes him instantaneously forget any Nigerian problem brought to his attention; or if his government has been hijacked by a bloodsucking cabal, then of course I will stop loving my President Muhammadu Buhari.
