In an interview with Saturday Sun in Lagos, a notable Yoruba leader and founder, Oodua Peoples Congress, OPC, Fredrick Fasehun, described alleged marginalization of the Yoruba in Buhari’s government as real. He called on the president to do the needful, warning that the people from the geo-political zone may use their votes to punish the president and APC in 2019 general elections, unless there is a redress.
What will be Yoruba’s reaction in the next general election, considering Buhari’s perceived betrayal of the South-west?
The answer is very simple. Buhari should forget South-west in 2019. People’s eyes are open now and not only in Yorubaland, even in the North people are tired of Buhari’s administration.
Apart from betrayal or no betrayal, what has Buhari done to deserve coming back? Almost two years into his administration, Nigerians have become more pauperized. There is pain and hunger in the land. Nigerians are really angry with this APC government.
Initially, when they were coming into office, were Nigerians not cheering Buhari and APC, but what is the situation today? Those Nigerians who were cheering Buhari and APC are now jeering at them. People are fed up. Even in the North, people are clamouring for change. When people shout APC in those days, others would respond Change, but today when you shout APC instead of people replying you with “Change”, they are replying “APC Shame.”
Buhari and other APC leaders should read the handwriting on the wall, and start doing the needful, because 2019 is almost here with us, and millions of Nigerians are eager to punish Buhari and APC with their votes.
