Yemi Farounbi Says God Is Using Buhari To Punish Nigerians For Their Evil Deeds

Yemi Farounbi said Nigerians were warned about Buhari before his election.

Former ambassador to the Philippines, Yemi Farounbi said God is using President Muhammadu Buhari to punish Nigerians for their evil deeds.

Farounbi Says Nigerians Were Warned About Buhari

The former ambassador, who spoke on a weekly radio show, Ayekooto on Splash 105.5FM, said Nigerians were warned about the past history of Buhari and how he imprisoned many politicians.

He said, “In 2014/2015 when we were campaigning when Nigerians decided to accept the campaign of once chance, they were warned of the past history of Muhammadu Buhari and how he imprisoned many politicians including Chief Obafemi Awolowo,” he said.

“God is a wonderful being. He decided to use Buhari to punish Nigerians for their evil deeds, and Nigerians deserve these punishments.

“Nigeria is not what I thought it would be. I have incurable optimism that Nigeria will still be better. Those who are enjoying proceeds of bribery, corruption, epileptic power supply, insecurity, among other vices, are not looking forward to seeing a better Nigeria.”

Farounbi added that the threats made by bandits against Buhari and Kaduna State governor, Nasir El-Rufai portend great danger to the country’s unity.

“The acts of the bandits have shown that they really mean business. They recently ambushed officers from the Brigade of Guards in Abuja, and this is an absolute insult and injury to the sovereignty of the country, and whenever I hear this, I feel ashamed of our country,” he added.

Farounbi said during a visit to Cambodia when he was still an ambassador, he was accorded great honour and treated like a saviour because Nigeria had helped the country during the crisis.

“Now we are being threatened by terrorists in our country and our soldiers are almost incapacitated, the Nigerians soldiers that went to Lebanon, Sierra Leone, Liberia and Congo but now they cannot effectively defend the territorial integrity of their country,” he said.

On politics, Farounbi said the country’s two main political parties share identical ideologies — and that they just serve to recycle politicians with little or no value to the nation while people remain oblivious to their rights.

He further criticized the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) for fielding a Muslim-Muslim presidential ticket, stating that such act could further put the unity of the country in jeopardy.

Farounbi, however, said Buhari may still improve his reputation by becoming Nigeria’s best leader if he honestly restructures the nation into six geographical regions, adding that it would boost the nation’s economic and political space.

KanyiDaily recalls that President Muhammadu Buhari had reassured that efforts are ongoing by his administration to find solutions to the hardship faced by Nigerians.
