Testimony By a Nigerian on Why They Didn't vote for Buhari


We didn't vote for him, because we didn't know!
We didn't know that he supervised and birthed our only existing refineries. We didn't know that what he did in road construction while in the PTF hasn't been matched by 12yrs of the PDP, even though some claimed they were lopsided.
We didn't know that in his time as head of state he reduced inflation from 23% to 4%, by fiscal discipline and a homegrown economic team (not achieved under any other era, even military).
We didn't know that there was no religious crisis while he led .
We didn't know that JJ Rawlings of Ghana took over 2yrs before him, and killed all the corrupt leaders, while GMB merely gave his own, long-term jail sentences.
We didn't know that the hospitals and universities around the country never witnessed as much benefits they got from the PTF from any government after or before his time.
We did not know, that this man despite serving in senior capacity in the oil sector, has no petrol station, much less a rig, refinery or an oil block like so many of our leaders.
We never voted him, because we did not know.
But now we know... We know that he has followership in the north that money can't buy. We know that those who follow him are poor, and follow him out of hope and belief in his values. I have met old men who know him, who have said... "All I need from Buhari is his word, I can take it to the bank".
Now we know that here is someone that has been in everything to make him an IBB or Danjuma, but didn't take that road.We feared he was an Islamic fundamentalist,but he challenged us to provide any human being who can point at anything he did to show that.
Now we know, that it's about the values... The only former head of state that does not own a house in Abuja.
Educate someone today!
