ABUJA (The T.A. Report) — President Muhammadu Buhari has explained that his promise of change also involves the right to change his mind and laments the backlash that followed his declaration of desire to re-contest.
He stated this is in a series of tweets on Monday, posted through his personal account, @MBuhari. In one tweet, he challenged “naysayers” to go to court if they really think he has done something wrong.
“The contract I signed with Nigerians is that of change. I said it clearly and repeatedly during my campaign in 2015, so I do not know what the problem is now,” he wrote.
“Someone should explain to me why I can’t change my mind after promising change?” he asked. “I can change the country, but cannot change my mind? Isn’t that unfair?”
“Some naysayers from the PDP are saying I breached my contract with Nigerians, but I think they should take their arguments to the court of law if they really have a point,” he said in another Tweet.
Shortly after the tweets were posted, Tolu Ogunlesi (@toluogunlesi), on the same platform, also blasted “those who are not happy with Nigeria’s progress”.
“I don’t know what’s wrong with some brutes without PVC who think they have a say in national politics,” he tweeted. “Nigeria has greatly improved under this administration and it is generous of Mr President to want to continue despite the toll on his health.”
“I think those who are not happy with Nigeria’s progress should are free to pack their things and leave,” he added. “Thanks to Mr President, the North is now safer as a gateway to the Mediterranean sea.”
Meanwhile, Naomi Barbara has congratulated President Buhari and said her organisation is warming up to confer on him a newly introduced MLK Award of Meritorious Service during the Black History Month in 2019.
