Abdulmajeed Dan-Biliki Kwamanda, a leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kano State and a former member of The Buhari Organization (TBO), has stated that it may be difficult for most Nigerians to forgive President Muhammadu Buhari.
Recall how Buhari begged Nigerians for forgiveness for the harsh policies his administration had implemented over the previous eight years when addressing visitors who had come to pay him respect on Friday at the residence, saying: “Those that think that I have hurt them so much, please pardon me.”
Speaking to journalists in Kano, Kwamanda claimed that President Buhari’s apologies were meaningless due to the enormous amount of collateral damage brought on by his administration’s policies and initiatives.
He added that Buhari has failed to fulfill his promise and that it may be tough for the less fortunate Nigerians to accept the president’s apologies given the severe harm the former administration caused to the nation.
He said: “You will realise that apologising is a new trick that is being deployed by Nigerian politicians these days, essentially to appease the consciousness of Nigerians having failed to entrench good governance when they had ample opportunity to fix the country right.
“After missing the opportunity and approaching the end of their tenures, what you will hear coming out of their mouths is apologies, and appeal for forgiveness for their wrong actions. Well, while I don’t have any objection to that, I want to believe that the decision to accept Mr. President’s apologies or not lies with the vast majority of Nigerians.
“But if you ask me, I will say that a vast majority of Nigerians will not forgive the president, especially on institutional decisions that have crippled Nigeria’s economy. For instance, the CBN’s naira re-design policy, and the resultant naira scarcity. Look at fuel scarcity and many other issues. I think Nigerians will find it difficult to forgive President Muhammad Buhari on some of these issues.”
