‘Change’ must start from Buhari!: Politics : Nigerialog.com - Nigeria's Premier Online Forum
When I was a Youth Corps member in Niger State in 1985, then Major David Mark, the Military Governor, came to our Bida Orientation Camp and led us, one early cold morning, in a 20 kilometre roadwork. At the end of it, smartly kitted in a green and white track suit, he addressed us. He said (I remember it vividly):“When you lead a people, whatever you want them to do you must do it ten times over first. That is what I believe, and that is why I led the roadwork today”.I am holding Buhari, my President to his mandate of changing this country for the better. All I see is a series of change for the worse: Fulani herdsmen killing people, occupying their farms and trampling all over Abuja as if they are herding “national cows”; juicy and strategic federal jobs reserved for Buhari’s kinsmen and close acolytes, a burgeoning civilian dictatorship where people detained are denied their democratic rights, lack of idea on how to tackle the economic problems, haemorrhaging levels of job losses, opulent lifestyle in Aso Villa by the First Family and its other tenants, a horribly padded federal budget, hardship, hunger and hopelessness everywhere.
