Dele Momodu, a renowned journalist was one of the Nigerians who unverifiedly gave their support to Buhari in 2015 and cheaply fall for his political trick. He was one of those who believed that the old general has repented and has become a full blown democrat.

However, Buhari’s attitude and actions in Democratic Nigeria have proved them wrong as many of them have started to realize their mistakes and stereotypes. To this end, we bring you the lamentation of Dele Momodu.

Read below:

Dele Momodu

“I must confess that at the height of our stupidity and naivety, in retrospect, we threw caution to the winds.

We wrote off Jonathan despite occasional flashes of genius and inspiration by some members of his team.

In the meantime, former Nigerian Head of State, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (RTD.) was repackaged to smell like roses and we all fell for the promise of Eldorado he seemed to hold at the time.

I was one of those who jumped on the bandwagon to describe him as a born-again Democrat, despite some strident and persistent warnings by then Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose and others. Perhaps we were fooled by the fact in quick succession he had picked Pentecostal pastors in his running mate in Pastor Tunde Bakare in 2011 and Professor Yemi Osinbajo in 2015.

Those who told us that our Hallelujah Choruses were premature and that a leopard can never change its spots were castigated and hounded by those of us who had been converted to what we believed was the new Buhari.

We sang in unison that anyone but Jonathan. The rest is history.”

Nigerian should beg Goodluck.
