President Muhammadu Buhari has come under fire for urging Nigerians who have been offended by his conduct or policies to forgive him because he is also a human, according to Omoyele Sowore, the AAC’s presidential candidate.
As previously reported by SaharaReporters, President Buhari reportedly implored Nigerians who felt “so much” wounded by his acts on Friday to forgive him because “we are all humans.”
Speaking on Friday at the Presidential Villa in Abuja at the ninth and final Sallah homage, President Buhari referred to himself as a lucky man for having served Nigeria in a variety of leadership positions, including governor, minister, head of state, and president.
But reacting to Buhari’s speech, Sowore said that Buhari did not only hurt Nigeria but dehumanised its citizens, denied Nigerians decent life, denied children, women, men and young people an opportunity to live and thrive.
Sowore, who further said that President Buhari destroyed businesses, took innocent lives, destroyed education sector and deprived the sick and infirm an opportunity to be nursed to health, said that souls, lives and opportunities the President ruined and crushed will continue to hunt and haunt him till the end of time.
The human rights activist said, “President @mbuhari you just didn’t hurt Nigeria, you dehumanised its citizens, you denied Nigerians of a decent life, you denied children, women, men -old and young- an opportunity to live and thrive.
“You destroyed businesses, you took innocent lives, you destroyed the educational sector, you deprived the sick and infirm an opportunity to be nursed to health. You unjustly detained and imprisoned many. You encouraged violence where you couldn’t carry it out yourself. You created division through religious bigotry and ethnicity.
“Yourself, your family members , cronies and members of your cabal perpetrated untold corruption. You borrowed Nigeria back to the Stone Age!
“Your tenure and the souls you ruined, lives you wasted, opportunities you crushed will continue to hunt and haunt you till the end of time!”
