- “It is those of you who voted for Buhari in 2015 that should be amazed”
Ayo Adebanjo, acting national leader of Afenifere, a pan-Yoruba socio-cultural group, says he told Nigerians in 2015 that Muhammadu Buhari presidency will spell doom for the country.
Adebanjo said Buhari is an unrepentant dictator who has no regard for the rule of law.
The Afenifere leader said this as a response to a question on Buhari’s recent comment on his experience during the civil war.
On Tuesday, Buhari spoke about the civil war experience and threatened to deal with those “bent on destroying” Nigeria through “insurrection”.
“Those of us in the fields for 30 months, who went through the war, will treat them in the language they understand,” the president had said.
Reacting to Buhari’s statement, Adebanjo queried why a democratically-elected president would threaten his “subjects” with “lessons practised during a war”.
“It is a very unfortunate statement from the president of a democratic country. I was very sad when I heard it. When I was informed, I thought it couldn’t be but I’m not surprised,” Adebanjo said during an interview on Channels Television on Wednesday,.
“It is those of you who voted for Buhari in 2015 that should be amazed. I warned you then that this man is a dictator. He is born a feudalist; he is trained as a dictator, and he has no respect for the rule of law.
“Can a democratic president be talking of teaching his subjects, who voted him into power, that he is going to teach them the lessons practised during a war? We are in peace time.”
