We Are Seeking God’s Forgiveness For Supporting Buhari – Oyinlola

Olagunsoye Oyinlola

The former governor of Osun State, Olagunsoye Oyinlola, has criticised President Muhammadu Buhari led administration over failure to tackle security challenges rocking Nigeria.

Mr Oyinlola served as governor in Osun between 2003 and 2010 under the umbrella of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). He later defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC) shortly before the 2014 governorship election in the state.

He was one of those who campaigned for Mr Buhari ahead of the 2015 general elections.

Speaking on BBC Yoruba programme on Thursday, Mr Oyinlola said those that supported and canvassed for Mr Buhari are already seeking forgiveness from God.

The BBC interview was monitored by PT correspondent.

“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.

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