Nigeria, under President Muhammadu Buhari, has remained one of the most hated and corrupt countries in the world. Nigerians have never had it so tragic. May the likes of Baba Buhari never rule this nation again.

This was the submission of Taju Tijani, a social critic and author in an opinion piece titled, “Buhari’s change: 7 years of decay, death and debt.”

According to the author, Nigerians must stay wide awake and sweep away Buhari, the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) shenanigans and his tragic assault against Nigeria’s democracy into the dustbin of history.

“Seven years under Buhari, yesterday’s hope has turned into despair. He has tarnished his integrity with weakness for tribal clannishness. He has demonstrated his weakness for his Fulani clan.

“Under Buhari, looters are becoming bold to even accuse his government of incompetency. Yesterday’s thieves have regrouped to truncate his desire to fight corruption. The media have colluded with the looters and have turned their news platforms to looters to abuse, respond and dare the government of Buhari.

Tijani said General Mohammadu Buhari has turned out to be the saddest joker Nigeria has ever seen. “His story is the story of an old jackboot rebel, who, at a time of Nigeria’s military rule, straightened some of the contours of our national aberrations.

“In the 80s we idolized Buhari. He was the iconic leader who shook us to our foundation. He unplugged us from the long and tragic trajectory of dancing to songs of pain and sorrow. He turned Nigeria upside down. He destroyed our idols.

“He burned our altars and set out to rededicate Nigeria to a new set of godly values. He brought illumination to the monstrous darkness that was Nigeria then and we all supported Buhari with fierce loyalty. We warmed around the glow of his “War Against Indiscipline” and most of our old ways collapsed as we embraced the new.

Are Nigerians naïve and silly in their innocent assumptions that you will do politics differently? Are Nigerians paying the price for mythologizing your ancient performance without a prophet to warn them of the word of Proverbs 24:22 – “Do not associate with those given to change?”

“Today Nigerians are living with a bitter sense of betrayal. Buhari’s lies have become a permanent fixture even among liberal commentators. For seven years, the nature of the political narrative is that the change mantra has remained meaningless without tangible proof of what has changed so far. The political, social, and economic reclamation promised by Buhari via change have all floundered dramatically and tragically. Your change has not unseated corruption. Your change has not unseated unemployment among our youths.

“Your change has not unseated our social paralysis. Your change has not unseated cabals from the interior recesses of our political life. Buhari’s change has turned into bitter ashes in the mouths of Nigerians. If we had known that Baba Buhari was coming to turn Nigeria into a failed state, we would not have embraced such tragic change.

“Nigerians have endured seven years of Buhari’s lies. They have endured seven years of decay, death, and debt under APC. They have endured seven years of bloodshed, Fulani ethnocentrism, asset capture, massive looting, and lawlessness, destruction of education, oil theft, and widespread kidnapping.

“Nigeria, under Buhari, has remained one of the most hated and corrupt countries in the world. Nigerians have never had it so tragic. May the likes of Baba Buhari never rule this nation again? May the likes of APC fail woefully in the next election? Nigerians must stay wide awake and sweep away Buhari, his APC shenanigans and his tragic assault against our democracy into the dustbin of history.
