Terrorist Buhari still behaving like military dictator –Fasoranti

Leader of Afenifere, Chief Reuben Fasoranti, has observed that President Muhammadu Buhari is still behaving like a military dictator.

Fasoranti, who made his observation known yesterday in Akure, Ondo State capital, accused Buhari of running a one-man show.

The Afenifere leader noted that the president had not settled down for governance, warning that time was running.

He said: “I think the President should sit down and have a package. What people are saying is very correct. He is just picking people here and there.

“He does not have time to settle down for governance yet, and time is flying. Let him constitute the cabinet and start working. As it is now, Buhari is still behaving like a military dictator, just picking on people.

“He is running a one-man show now. But let us give him some time. We will wait until then. At that time, we will still want to express our opinion. When we are convinced, we will say it.”

It would be recalled that Fasoranti and his Afenifere team supported former President Goodluck Jonathan during the last general elections.

He said he and other Yoruba leaders supported Jonathan because of his pledge to implement the recommendations of the 2014 National Conference.

He lamented that the Buhari administration has not shown any interest in considering decisions taken at the confab, saying their implementation was the only way out of the woods for Nigeria.

“The reason we supported Jonathan, of course, was because he agreed to carry out the decisions of the National Conference. Present government is not working towards that and when the time comes, we shall speak again.

“Unless we implement the recommendations of the conference, Nigeria will not settle. There are restructuring and many other things in the recommendations. And so much money was spent on it. It will be a shame; in fact, it will be a disaster if the report of the confab is dumped somewhere.

“I am sure people will continue to talk until something is done. Although, APC didn’t like it, they didn’t attend, but the recommendations formed the blueprint for the future of Nigeria,” he said.

The Afenifere leader described the passing of the former Ooni of Ife, Oba Okunade Sijuade, as a sad and heavy loss.

Fasoranti, who said it would be difficult to fill the place of the former Ooni, expressed hope that the people of Ife would choose the right person to fill the vacant stool.
