North Thought Buhari Would Be The Next Mahatma Gandhi – Bauchi Ex-deputy Governor

According to Sule Katagum, a former deputy governor of Bauchi State, the north regarded president Muhammadu Buhari as their Mahatma Gandhi.

Katagum claimed in an interview with Punch that the reasons he switched from the All Progressives Congress (APC) to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) were due to the fact that the beliefs that had motivated him to join the party in 2014 were no longer relevant.

He claimed that he joined the party because of ideas like justice and fairness, and that they (the north) had anticipated Buhari to be similar to Nelson Mandela and Mahatma Gandhi.

He did admit, though, that he had come to see how diluted the party’s core values had become over time.

His words: “The reason that made us join the APC in 2014 were that the party’s principles entailed things like fairness, justice, and so on. If you look at the motto of the APC, we believed strongly in the APC. In the north, there was no doubt, Buhari was like a messiah, Buhari was compared to people like Mahatma Gandhi and Nelson Mandela. We thought this was a man who would clean Nigeria and make it what it was supposed to be.

“Sadly, the principles, over the years, became more or less like those of the normal Nigerian political party.”
