THOSE who clamoured for the emergence of President Muhammadu Buhari as Nigeria’s next leader in the last presidential election are beginning to retrace their steps.
One of such persons is Charles Chukwuebuka Oputa, popularly known as Charley Boy.
In a veil reference to the political contest between former President Goodluck Jonathan who was the candidate of the PDP and General Muhammadu Buhari who in turn was that of the APC in the 2015 presidential election, the maverick artiste on his facebook timeline made his preference for the APC candidate.
HEADLINE recalls the before the build up of the 2015 presidential election, Charley Boy had in his Facebook timeline said “Nigeria needs the kind of leader that people are afraid of, one that commands tremendous respect, charismatic with a lot of enigmatic swagg(sic). We have had enough of biscuit, baba sala, yahoo.com leaders, we need someone who can whip people back to shape, because many tinz(sic) spoil.
“Someone who can turn around most of the things that have gone wrong, because right now nobody is afraid of anything, impunity is the order of the day.
“This country needs a man who is selfless and ready for the ultimate sacrifice, one who smells different, has the guts and is strong enough to shake Nigeria to its roots, by dealing roughly with some motherfuckers who have messed up this country.
“Nigeria doesn’t need a man who is indecisive about things and afraid, she needs a man who is tough enough to confront the wolves. Nigeria needs a benevolent dictator. It’s really time for some Ass kicking. How you see the matter?”
From his description above, HEADLINE understands that the only presidential candidate who fit into his account is the current incumbent Nigerian Leader, Muhammadu Buhari who later won the election.
But the stance of the ace musician and Convener, OurMumuDonDo Movement, started changing when he wrote an open letter to the president when the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) heightened its call for an independent state.
He said he had hoped that Mr. Buhari would, after winning the presidential election, turn the economy around and quell the rising tension and agitation especially in the south east through fair and just treatment of the region.
This was after he had called on the president to resume or resign from office if the president could not address Nigerians from his abroad medical vacation which saw him spent over hundred days outside the shores of the country.
Lately last year, calls for the president to seek a second term in office resurfaced with a failed bid to secure an automatic ticket for the president from his party.
Mr. Buhari is yet to officially declare his interest to contest or not.
Lending his voice to the call, Charley Boy advised President Buhari to perish the thought of a second term in office.
Charley Boy listed many reasons on why the president should not recontest.
He said Mr. Buhari failed to address the issue of Insecurity, Hunger, Unemployment among others.
