It’s too early to criticize Buhari – Afenifere

The Ekiti State Chapter of Egbe Afenifere, the pan-Yoruba socio-political group, has declared that it is too early for a section of Nigerians to criticize President Muhammadu Buhari who is barely three months in office.

The body said all Nigerians must support Buhari’s efforts to rid the country of corruption and clear the mess allegedly left behind by former President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration.

It, however, faulted the position of the Afenifere Leader, Chief Reuben Fasoranti, who accused Buhari of ruling like a dictator and running a one-man show by not forming a cabinet since coming to power.

The Ekiti State Chairman of Afenifere, Chief Ibidapo Awojolu, who spoke in Ado Ekiti on Tuesday, said Buhari has given the country the right direction and showed that he possesses the ability to offer quality leadership.

He maintained that the people of Ekiti State in particular and the Yoruba in general are not opposed to Buhari, saying they remain important stakeholders in his administration and would never antagonize a government that is determined to take Nigeria out of the woods.

Awojolu said the impression created by Fasoranti was incorrect and not in tandem with expectations of majority of Nigerians who are happy with Buhari’s vision in enthroning probity, accountability and transparency in governance.

He said: “Criticizing Buhari is premature and too early in the day. He is not up to three months in office, how can you be criticizing somebody who has four years to spend in office and be assessing his performance within three months?

“The criticism is part of the inbuilt prejudice and antagonism they have against him which started from the election period.

“The Yoruba are not against Buhari and we want to say that nobody either as a person or a group should make other Nigerians believe that the Yoruba are against President Buhari.

“In Ekiti State, majority of the people are in support of President Buhari and what he (Fasoranti) wants the whole Nigerians to believe is that the Yoruba are against Buhari and this is not true.”
