Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain, Chief Abu King Shuluwa, when quizzed about the state of affairs in the nation had these to say
“Buhari is not Nigeria’s messiah. Nigerian messiah is yet to come. Nigeria is a very complex country. I supported Buhari while we were searching for leadership because we thought that given his antecedents, he would be able to run this country.”
He added, For instance, if you go to Kaduna and see Buhari’s house having served as a former Head of State, you wouldn’t believe it. Buhari does not allow his relations to flood the Villa. He does not allow the governors to give him names of people who should be given one portfolio or another. He restricted all the governors to their own states.
When you look at all these things, you think that Buhari would be better. But one thing that you should know is that Buhari knows too much alone. He is a loner. We have now discovered that Buhari is a loner; the man who doesn’t listen or take advice from anybody. The man who knows everything about Nigeria alone.
How can you run a country like that? We should run this country together. Together we will be strong and together we can succeed. But if you decide to run this country alone the way Buhari is running it, then, there is a problem.
When asked about Patience Jonathan, the GEJ administration and it’s issues with corruption, he said “I expect Patience to have more money than has been discovered. If the EFCC looks well, it would get more money from her. When the former Ministry of Petroleum returned almost $90 billion, have we been told what has or is happening to that money? If a Minister can retain $90 billion, what do you expect of Patience? Patience should have more than that”
During Jonathan’s administration, I was in PDP but I didn’t know that PDP was as corrupt as it was. Under Jonathan, corruption was very high and now, under Buhari, the corruption still continues and in fact, has been rebranded. If anybody tells you that corruption has gone down under Buhari, it’s a lie.
