Many Nigerians are beginning to question the president’s ability to deliver the expected change promised during the electioneering period.
A pro-Buhari group, Change Vigilantes, are the latest to voice their concerns President Muhammadu Buhari’s popularity seem to be waning as a group hitherto known for supporting his government has accused the government of derailing from its original visions.
Some of the supporters who made their opinion known at a town hall meeting organised by Change Vigilantes, a pro-Buhari group, in Lagos, urged the government to reverse itself from the wrong direction.
Speakers at the event identified corruption, epileptic power supply, unemployment, bad economy, as the major issues after almost one year of the Buhari administration.
Leader of the of group, Dr Ope Banwo stated that the president should not be allowed to fall into the same situation his predecessor, Goodluck Jonathan fell into when his supporters refrained from telling him the truth.
Banwo said: “I am one of those people spending their money and energy fighting for Buhari’s government, right now am not happy with the direction the country is taking in different areas.
“They say those who do not learn from history are bound to repeat the mistakes of history. So the government must learn from the mistakes of the previous administration.
“One of those things that led to the downfall of the Jonathan’s administration was that those who sincerely believed in the government never told the former president the truth until it was too late, and that is one of the things we are determined will never happen with the change government.
“I do not need to prove my commitment to the Buhari government because I have been a die-hard Buharist even before the election, touring places to ensure the success of the president at the election.
“We felt that the government is losing direction. So, as part of my own way to make sure the government never derail from its change mantra, we continue to call on the government, spending our resources to make sure he is on the right track.”
Speaking on unemployment in the country, Banwo said “the government is doing well, but the government performance on employment is poor. The president must be reminded that he promised 740,000 jobs in first year, but we got more than 740,000 layoffs.”

    The legislatures need to be blame, not buhari. They refused to support mr president by providing the necessary climate for the change mantra to triumph.
