Kassim Afegbua, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC
and spokesman of former military president, Badamasi Babangida
has sensationally described President Muhammadu Buhari as
Chichidodo over his alleged aversion to corruption but likes the
proceeds of corruption.He also declared that the president has failed
on all fronts.
The Ghanaian novelist, Ayi Kwei Armah, made the Chichidodo
famous in his book, The Beautiful Ones Are Not Yet Born, of a bird
that detests excreta but eats maggots from it.
In a post on Facebook, Afegbua said Buhari has failed on all fronts,
therefore, his decision to withdraw his support for him, while
tracing how Nigerians celebrated in 1984 when the president was
overthrown in a military coup as a dictator.
Afegbua, a former commissioner and Chief Press Secretary to
Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo state wrote: “Integers or no
integers, we have been witnessing a phlegmatic leadership for
almost three years now.
“Even as a younger officer who became president in 1983, his
exit was heralded by hallelujah songs. If he were that effective, he
wouldn’t be so treated.
“I massively supported Buhari in 2015 but I have every reason
to withdraw my support following his lack of performance and
indecision on certain issues. He broke his integrity code when he
couldn’t publicly declare his assets. He fraternized with all manners
of people who brought all manners of funds to the table to support
his election. Your Mr. Integrity couldn’t raise concern.
“Even those known EFCC candidates dictated the flow of his
campaigns. They spent money, he enjoyed the rave. He flew jets to
every corner of the country, he didn’t ask questions where the funds
were coming from. His son had accident while cruising in a bike.
You and I know that bikes are not the same as okada. He went to
London for treatment, he didn’t declare the cost. Babachir Lawal
was indicted by the report, he didn’t prosecute him. Yet you sit here
and preach bunkum to me.
“He’s a typical example of Ayi Kwei Armah’s Chichidodo bird
that feeds on maggots but hates filth. Such an irony.
