Former Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress Bolaji Abdullahi explained why the Muhammadu Buhari, Nigerians voted into power in 2015, is not the same president today at Aso Rock.
Abdullahi, who was part of the ruling party’s mass defection, asked Nigerians to leave the Buhari train, adding that the man who presides over the nation’s affairs today was not the leader that Nigerians had endorsed in 2015.
He said Monday in a conversation with Vanguard in response to the vote of no confidence passed to President Buhari on Sunday by leaders of the Northern Seniors Forum.
The director of communications and strategies of the Peoples Democratic Party of the presidential campaign organization said he did not participate in the cloning debate, but insisted that Buhari had abandoned the principles for which he was widely revered.
He said, “Some of us risked our political careers to rally round Muhammadu Buhari in 2015 and today we have realised that we are in a one-chance vehicle. But I say that having realized where we are, it is time to get down from that one-chance vehicle.
“The Northern Elders Forum was one of the strongest supporters of Buhari in 2015 but they have now realised that the Buhari we have today is the not the Buhari they voted for in 2015.
“But the Buhari of today has been receiving corrupt people into his party who are hoping he will give them cover. Today, the position of the Northern Elders Forum has vindicated some of us who saw the wisdom in leaving the party (APC) to join the crusade to rescue Nigeria.”
