Read what he wrote belowâ€¦
I usually try not to pay attention to comments from people that
assume stuff or those who judge others based on perceptions.
However I have also come to agree that when lies are said often
enough, they begin to sound like truths. So I think
itâ€™s best I use this medium to clear the issue
of â€œcampaignsâ€ and
While many of my colleagues, friends and family members
campaigned for the PDP, APC and various candidates during the last
elections (and I cannot emphasize enough that it is their RIGHT to
do so), I never campaigned for Buhari or any other politician.
ALL those saying that I did should do everything within their
power to â€œTHINKâ€. I know thinking
can be a very difficult task for some but trust me, it can be a
painless and enlightening process. THINK of when I ever
â€œCAMPAIGNEDâ€ for BUHARI!!.. Indeed I
personally HOPED that he would win the election and perhaps that
was evident in my â€œbody languageâ€
and I am happy he won. But I did not campaign for him.
Nigeria was in a bad place by the end of the last
administration and it was only a matter of time before we would
have suffered the plights of Brazil and Venezuela. Truth of the
matter is that I would have voted ANYONE that could speak 2 words
of English against GEJ and thatâ€™s strictly based
on the amount of greed and selfishness we witnessed from members of
his administration in the 6 years that he sat on the rock. They put
us in this Septic tank we are in right
nowâ€¦..well, that and the oil price downfall
amongst other things.
I have said it numerous times that I am not a politician hence
I try not to dabble in politics. However I think a few people
interpret crying out against injustice by the one as campaign for
the other. When the Late FELA KUTI and BOB MARLEY cried out against
the injustices in their days, were they being partisan? Of course
not. They were just being HUMAN!
I am forever grateful to God for blessing me with a
flourishing career, a beautiful family, food on my table and small
change in my pocket. However I see too many people everyday who
have not been so lucky to travel and see the way things are outside
Nigeria/Africa. I have seen how GOVERNMENT can influence and affect
the lives of the downtrodden positively. I am still patient,
praying and hoping that PMB can turn Nigeriaâ€™s
economy around and help strengthen Nigeriaâ€™s
social justice system. Not so I can cheer him and be vindicated
that I was right and some were wrong, but so my friends, family
members and well-wishers who havenâ€™t been
favored as others can have renewed hope in our country Nigeria and
the brotherhood we have enjoyed in this generation. Even the United
States went through a tough recession in 2008 and with some
patience they have been able to turn that around.
So long story short, did I campaign for PMB? NO! Do I support
and PRAY that his administration should succeed and improve the
life of the common man, increase security, food, Â jobs,
infrastructure, quality of education, healthcare and every other
area that will make Nigerians proud wherever they may find
On the other hand, should he and his party fail, we are all
free to cast our votes for the next man come 2019 and I shall be
exercising that right. No need for quarrel.
