“General Muhammadu Buhari condemned the 1983 general election in strong terms in order to justify the coup d’etat in which he and his fellow mutineers and coupists removed President Shehu Shagari and the ruling National Party Of Nigeria, NPN from power.


”The last general election was anything but free and fair. The only political parties that could complain of election rigging are those parties that lacked the resources to rig. There is ample evidence that rigging and thuggery were relative to the resources available to the parties. This conclusively proved to us that the parties have not developed confidence in the presidential system of government on which the nation invested so much material and human resources. While corruption and indiscipline have been associated with our state of under-development, these two evils in our body politics have attained unprecedented height in the past few years. The corrupt, inept and insensitive leadership in the last four years has been the source of immorality and impropriety in our society”

– General Muhammadu Buhari, December 31st, 1983.

It appears that things have come full circle. This is an excellent description of what is happening in our country today. 35 years after his infamous 1983 coup speech, President Buhari and his All Progressive Congress, APC are committing even worse atrocities than President Shagari and his NPN ever did.
Who will deliver Nigeria?”

– Chief Femi Fani-Kayode.
