Olufunke Awolowo, a grandchild of late Obafemi Awolowo, has revealed what the late sage said about President Muhammadu Buhari years back before he died.
According to Olufunke, her grandfather used to say that people came into politics for various reasons and interests but might not have what it takes to be leaders.
Commenting on President Buhari’s performance, the vibrant new-breed politician said:
“It’s is a long time I had been hearing about Buhari, so when he came back in 2014 with the Change mantra, I thought he had changed. That’s why, at a point, I personally campaigned for him because I believed it was time for change. “Someone even asked me if my late grandfather Chief Awolowo would’ve been happy to see me campaign for Buhari. I told the person that times had changed. But the past three years have shown that the man (Buhari) has not changed one bit; as far as he is concerned, nothing has changed.”
Commenting further she said:
“Buhari has failed, and that has taken my mind back to what Papa said about him a long time ago before he died. My grandfather said then that General Buhari did not have a full understanding of politics and governance. With what is happening in the country now, Papa was right.”
Reminded of the claims by the government of achievements made in various sectors of the economy, the pastor cum politician said it’s all propaganda. She said:
“Even President Trump for a while was almost deceived. You could see how angry the American President was with his reaction after that. Nigeria needs someone who is sincere and who means well.”
