The founder of Igbo Youth Movement and the Secretary of the Eastern Consultative Assembly, ECA, Elliot Ugochukwu-Uko has said only Nigeria’s enemies would vote President Muhammadu Buhari in the forthcoming election.
The Igbo youth leader said this in an interview with DAILY POST on Tuesday.
Ugochukwu-Uko while accusing Buhari of destroying the economy, dividing the country, institutionalizing nepotism and condoning bloodshed said there was absolutely nothing good about Buhari’s performance in the past three and half years.
”There is absolutely nothing good about Gen Buhari. He came to power and spent six months commanding the central bank and reversing them without ministers, without cabinet for six whole months, personalizing the government of the country, trying to institutionalize himself as an oracle.
”He destroyed the economy, divided the country, institutionalized nepotism and condoned bloodshed. Everything must be done to return him to Daura so that he can take care of himself. The quality of every product in the market has so much decreased from tissue paper to roofing zinc.
”The quality has decreased and the prices increased. Go to the market and check. The quality of our life is diminishing under Gen Buhari. So many companies have closed, some have ran away from Nigeria under Gen Buhari. Millions of people have been thrown into unemployment market under Gen. Buhari. Farmers in the Middle Belt and many other parts of the country have received it hot under Gen Buhari.
Speaking further, the youth leader alleged that Boko Haram and herdsmen stopped attacking Nigerians because Buhari is running for a second term, adding that they may return after the elections.
”His people just ceased fire because their “Oga” is running for election next week. May be they will resume again immediately after the elections, confirming that they listen to him. When his interest is at stake, his people will know and they can ceasefire. People are killed like rats under Gen Buhari. The Shiite, the IPOB, and ordinary people.
”Insecurity is worst under Gen Buhari. From the Fulani Herdsmen militia to the Boko Haram unleashing mayhem in the North East to armed gunmen in the North West in Zamfara, Kastina and Sokoto. The country is ablaze under Gen Buhari. Anybody who wants Buhari to continue in power is an enemy of progress. Any Nigerian who does anything or engages in anything that will assist Gen Buhari in one way or the other to return to power that person is not being fair to himself because Gen Buhari is a clear and enemy of unity and survival of Nigeria.
”Buhari’s world view is inimical to the growth of Nigeria. We are calling on all men and women of good will to campaign door to door and tell their neighbours in all the six geopolitical zones that we must retire Gen Buhari on the 16th of Feb. 2019 out of Aso Rock so that Nigeria can be rebuilt and reconstructed,”he added.
