TRUE LIFE STORY
STORY ! STORY !!
I have a very good friend of mine from Kaduna; infact; we’ve been friends for over 30 years now.
In 2014, when I returned from UK and created this Forum; he was among the first 50 people that constituted G50.
We all needed a change in our dear country.
Due to PDP’S MISRULE and IMPUNITY coupled with WEAK LEADERSHIP of Goodluck Jonathan; we opted to campaign and support Buhari because we were looking for a Messiah to take us to the promise land.
He knew all the insults and abuses that I received because I was campaigning and supporting Buhari being an Igbo man; he encourages me that we needed a change in Nigeria.
He further told me that corruption constitutes 90% of Nigeria’s problem and if Buhari’s wins; it means that 90% of Nigeria’s problem is solved.
It was selfless service with our little resources because we wanted a better country.
Both of us voted for Buhari in the same polling unit including all the people that I mobilized.
To God be the glory; President Buhari won election and was sworn in as Democratic President.
I was among privileged few invited to Aso Rock as Social Media Agents of Change.
In 2018; when we observed that APC Government has completely derailed from all campaign promises coupled with President Buhari’s body language of 2nd tenure agenda; I started another campaign that President doesn’t deserve 2nd tenure.
Immediately, I declared it; he stopped talking to me and tagged me as Buhari’s hater.
Both of us live in the same locality.
On this fateful day; we met in the airport; I asked him if someone was coming to pick him at the airport and he told me yes. I told him that I would follow him to the town and he responded that there’s no problem about it.
By the time, we landed and carried our luggages; he told me that I shouldn’t enter his vehicle because I am Buhari’s hater.
I smiled and called an airport taxi to take me home. I was annoyed but somehow tried to control my temper.
Yesterday; he told me that he wanted to take me for a lunch; I obliged him the request.
He suggested Amala Joint; I told him that I don’t want to go to Amala Joint.
I deliberately choose a restaurant where a plate of food is sold for N7000 because I wanted him to pay for the airport taxi that he deprived me of during the campaigns.
He responded; if that’s what you want; I will oblige you the request.
After food was served; he told me that the reason he invited me for a lunch was because of the SECURITY SITUATION in the country.
You can perceive fears and uneasiness because one of his friends was kidnapped.
He pleaded with me that I should emphasize more on SECURITY ISSUES at Political Forum G50.
I responded that we’ve been doing that.
He told me that I should put more efforts so that it’ll get to President Buhari.
This is a true life story.
