I regret supporting Buhari for President – Oyinlola

As Nigeria battles insecurity, a former governor of Osun State, Olagunsoye Oyinlola, has expressed regret for supporting President Muhammadu Buhari’s election in 2019.

Oyinlola, who criticized the Buhari led administration over failure to tackle security challenges rocking Nigeria, said those who supported and canvassed for Buhari in 2015 are already seeking forgiveness from God.

Oyinlola, a retired army general said this while granting interview on a BBC Yoruba programme on Thursday. He said, “I participated in the process that brought in Buhari as president. We made several promises to Nigerians but we are yet to fulfill any. One of many cases is security. We thought because he (Buhari) was a former military head, he was going to eradicate Boko Haram in six months but nothing has changed.

“Obasanjo told us that he knows Buhari, and not sure he could lead Nigeria well, but we felt because he is a former military head, he should be able to tackle insurgence. Since we gained independence, and civil war, there’s no moment more scaring like what we have now.

“The newspaper reports we read daily capture death and abduction of people. Already, parents are not interested in sending their kids to school. Insecurity has not gone worst like this since 1999,” the ex-governor said.

Oyinlola, who has returned to the PDP, also advocated for restructuring, saying Buhari is acting ignorantly about all he promised in 2015.

“I am surprised that we have not seen difference. We promised the southerners restructuring but I am surprised that Buhari is acting so ignorantly about restructuring now. We lobbied them with restructuring promises. We are seeking forgiveness from God over these matters.”
