As President Muhammadu Buhari prepares to exit office on Monday, a Nigerian journalist has expressed displeasure over his eight years administration.
The Canada-based former newspaper manager, Chief Femi Shodunke said that the souls of those killed and kidnapped under President Buhari’s administration would haunt him forever.
Reacting to a statement that President Buhari would be addressing the nation on Sunday morning, the former Deputy Editor of the defunct Nigerian Compass said that the President had divided Nigerians among themselves by his style of governance.
Shodunke said: “Who needs his address? I’ve lost listening to the presidential address since the nepotic leader started his first term. He has dissuaded me, and apparently, a lot of Nigerians, from staying glue to the TV and radio and listen to the president speak.
“What’s he going to say? He debased, to me, that office and divided Nigerians more, and took us back to where it may take us a long time to recover from the cord of disunity he threw us, and the country, into.
“If it’s possible for him to read or hear me, tell him that I’m not ready to listen to whatever he intends to say. Instead, I’m anxiously waiting for his exit in few days time”.
He further said: “Please, tell him that the souls of the innocent ones who involuntary died (due to bad government policies under his administration), killed by Boko Haram, bandits, herdsmen, maimed, and abducted (some still missing now) will, insha Allah, haunt him for the rest of his life.
“I don’t care, let him come and arrest me or seek my extradition because of exercising my freedom of speech about the President, who behaved as if he’s the President of the Federal Republic of Northern Nigeria”.
