Buhari is number one enemy of Yoruba people – Minister of State for Works

The Minister of State for Works, Adedayo Adeyeye, has described the All Progressives Congress, APC, presidential candidate, Mohammadu Buhari, as “the number one enemy of the Yoruba people of the Southwest Nigeria”.

He said Mr. Buhari must be rejected by all true sons and daughters of Oduduwa, (the progenitor of the Yoruba race).

Mr. Adeyeye said the presidential candidate of the APC did incalculable damage to Lagos State and the entire Yorubaland with the cancellation of the Lagos Metroline Project and the late Chief Obafemi Awolowo’s Free Education Programme, in which pupils only needed to buy school uniform to go to school.

He challenged Mr. Buhari to mention a single project that he delivered in the Southwest when he was head of state and later Chairman of the Petroleum Trust, PTF.

“Buhari did not only cancel the Metroline Project, he went ahead to pay what was enough to complete the project as compensation to the French Company that handled the project,” the minister said.

“The idea of developing rapid transit in Lagos dated from the 1980s with the Lagos Metroline network conceived by the Alhaji Lateef Jakande during the Second Republic. The Metroline project was scrapped in 1985 by Buhari at a loss of over $78 million to the Lagos tax payers. Information on the Metroline Project is on Wikipedia for everyone to see.

“If Buhari had not cancelled that project out of hatred for the Yoruba people, transportation in Lagos would have been better than it is now and one can begin to imagine the number of lives and investments that had been lost to Buhari’s wickedness.”

Mr. Adeyeye said Mr. Buhari reversed everything that Mr. Awolowo did for the Yorubaland.

He alleged that the former head of state was even planning to merge the University of Ibadan with Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife when he was removed.

The minister said, “He stopped free education, thereby preventing many of our youths from going to school. Many of the youths that were victims of Buhari’s wickedness are now being begged by the APC to vote for the same man who cut short their bright future.

“Unlike Buhari, President Goodluck Jonathan has demonstrated his love for the Yoruba people by giving us a university in Ekiti, constructing the abandoned Lagos-Ibadan Expressway; among roads, approval for the construction of two seaports in Lagos and most importantly, by resuscitating rail transportation.

“Therefore, no real Yoruba person, who is sincerely interested in the progress of the Yoruba race will support a return of Buhari, who set us back by more than 50 years as president of Nigeria.”

    Campaign of Calumny. Dead on Arrival.

    PDP and Jonathan , should tell the South West what they have done for the zone in the past 16 years of PDP and 6 years of Jonathan.
    #Jonathanisbadluck

    PTF sign is still on display in many buildings, roads and Hospitals in South West Nigeria.
    , 16 years after
    Twenty Months as Military head of state:

    Buhari held the following positions in this country:

    1.Governor of North-Eastern State of Nigeria (August 1975 – March 1976)
    2. Minister For Petroleum and Natural Resources (March
    1976- June 1978)
    3. Chairman Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (June 1978- July 1978)
    4. 7th Head of State of Nigeria (Dec 31,1983- August 27, 1985)
    5. Chairman PTF(Mid 1994- July 1999)

    The whole truth is that General Mohammadu Buhari is light years way ahead and above his peers just as he is shoulders high above them in height.
    General Buhari so far has been the ONLY former Head
    of State that can wag his tail and walk freely in Nigeria without
    looking over his shoulders.

    Some of his Achievements:

    1. His administration initiated a public campaign against indiscipline known as “War Against Indiscipline (WAI)” when he realized the civilian government he took over from as head of states was HOPELESSLY CORRUPT.
    The campaign is still lauded by many to have instilled the most orderly conduct of public and private affairs n Nigeria since its independence in 1960

    2 In his time as head of state he reduced inflation from 23% to 4%, by fiscal discipline and a homegrown economic team (not achieved under any other era both civilian and military).

    3 He supervised and birthed our only existing refineries (1976-1978)

    4 What he did in road construction while in the PTF hasn’t been matched by 16yrs of the PDP.

    5 The hospitals and universities around the country never witnessed as much benefits they got from the PTF from any government after or before his time.

    6. The Buhari regime rebuffed all entreaties by IMF and World Bank to devalue the naira, remove subsidies on services and increase pump price on fuel..

    7. The Nigerian Naira was exchanged between 0.724 -0.894 to 1 Us Dollar during Buhari’s regime (1983-1985 ). Imagine our Naira was more than the dollars just 30 years ago. Today, the Naira exchanges for almost N190 to a dollar

    (8) You can go and check, the records are there. During Buhari’s time as head of state, Nigeria was exporting 100,000 barrels of refined petrol. Can you believe that? Subsequent administrations cannot even maintain our refineries and they have been subsidizing fraud in the name of fuel subsidy.

    Despite holding these public offices, check these out:

    While former leaders came to line their pockets with the national wealth, promote themselves to Generals of fortune and above all name some important streets and edifices and towns in Nigeria after themselves and their wives and children, it was not so with General Buhari, he was driven by patriotic zeal to serve Nigeria, even after being the Head of State for 20 months, he never promoted himself to a four-star general like others who came before or after him. Its also
    important to note that he did not create the office of First Lady, which others did as a means to steal the national and common wealth.

    – He has NO house or land in Abuja or Lagos

    – No property or savings abroad

    – He has NO oil wells, no petrol station.

    – Buhari and Nelson Mandela Barack were the only private African individuals invited to the white house during president
    Barrack Obama’s Inauguration why?
    because they are men of integrity..

    – Above all, he is not associated with corruption of any form or sort.
    Now PDP and Jonathan , should tell the South West what they have done for the zone in the past 16 years of PDP and 6 years of Jonathan.

  • Haruna Chiroma

    The former minister of works accused Buhari that he cancelled metro project . Why is it that the minister refused to do the same project when he was minister for works. How Jonathan PDP did not do the metro project within 6 years of his administration. The money is available and he refused to do it.

  • Bidemi Lukman

    Madam, yo are a big lier. I was in Primmary school in Lagos when Buahari took over, I did not pay a dine and he even started constructing modern buildings in my school (Oduduwa & National Pry sch/National College) before he was overthrown. THe school was opened by Mike Aigbe. I enjoyed free health care before and after his regime throughout my pry/sec school education.

    Through his PTF, he tarred all streets in my home town in Abeouta (Adatan/Oke Aregba)

    Why did not construct the metro line. Lier

  • dan

    Kai, this man don open Buhari’s old wound, chia!

  • Wakawa Aliyu

    Oga former minister…..the project and other capital projects were actually cancelled to pay for our external debts. Infact GMB’s regime paid all our debts……the Naira was even about to be stronger than the dollar then.

    • Gideon Orkar

      is that what you were taught in Almajiri school? That Buhari paid all our debts?

      • abc

        Didn’t I told you that your brain cells were dead, I still pity you. Eyyah.

      • kday

        In 20 Months and under immense pressure from the west GMB managed our affairs in a prudent and responsible manner. Fast forward to 2010, GEJ was handed a presidency that has next to no external debt, a $65 Billion external reserve and a high oil prices to boot. In just six years Dumbo depleted our reserve and has not been able to account for the $20 Billion stolen from NNPC. The lists goes on and on.

        • Gideon Orkar

            Only a brain wracked with the fever of ethnicity will argue those points he raised.

        • Saheed Akande

          Gej does not have the capacity to be a class captain let alone a president. He is not a bad man but you can’t give what you lack.see the issue of the insurgency we keep on losing grounds to insurgents the citizens keep dying and our president even forgot to to console with the victims.a leader that can’t tackle insurgency and corruption is not fit to rule

        • Tonnero

          Dont’t forget that when Buhari came, there was no money. Shagari and his NPN politicians had squandered all the money OBJ left for him and the country was broke! Pretty much like Jonathan and his PDP have done.

  • kday

    Yea! yea!! yea!!! I beg don’t teach us nonsense. We are quite aware of GMB’s tenure and what he did. Sorry o. But please tell Dumbo all we want to see is his PHD thesis and we promised to vote for him en-mass, ok?

    • tundemash

      you would think a sane person would have listed what Dumbo did in 6 years for Lagos and then compre with what he claimed Buhari did in 20months ! But these are lunatics masquearding as leaders !

      • kday

        Name sake, don’t sweat it. We are here to challenge all their conniving and deceitful moves with the truth.

      RAILWAYS AND ROAD AS WELL AS A UNIVERSITY IN EKITI STATE–NAME ONE THAT OBJ ERECTED–NOT TO TALK OF BUHARI

      • Tonnero

        First, we are talking GEJ and Buhari. OBJ is not contesting. Second, if not for your blindness caused by ethnicity, you would have realised that both OBJ and GEJ are PDP people so attacking OBJ does not help make your case for returning PDP. So we should vote out PDP. Third, OBJ saved tones of money, built games village, paid back all debt owed, carried out the telecoms revolution, launched a satellite to space etc. it is your Dumbo that is talking mundane things like road construction and even that, he is lying through his teeth about.

  • Dan

    Buhari was overthrown almost 30 years ago, why didn’t subsequent Head of State and President undertake this project?? Why haven’t you sourced the funds to do this?

    • tundemash

      Ordinarilty you would think a sane person would have listed what Dumbo did in 6 years for Lagos and then compare with what he claimed Buhari did in 20months ! But these are lunatics masquearding as leaders !

      • orkar

        WERE U READING THE STORY UPSIDE DOWN–DID HE NOT MENTION RAIL AND ROADS?

    • kday

      Imagine that. Blaming a man for a 30yr old project. PDP has been in power for 16 yr, they did not do jack and these useless human being are trying to make us believe that a man that bearly ruled for 20 Months is to blame. These people are used to telling Nigerians lies upon lies without being challenged. Not anymore clowns.

    • Gaskiya

      The project was introduced my Jakande, a state governor. APC has been in power for the last 16 years in Lagos which is gets the highest IGR in the country from facilities provided the FG. So why not direct your question to Tinubu and Fashola?

  • abc

    Buhari did not target any project, but cancels all foreing loans with high interest rates that the corrupt politician in 83 are processing. Therefore, there is no any fund set aside by Jakande to execute the project. For the universities issue my university ATBU then was marged with ABU, and many other universities that lack the capacity to be called universities, and nothing is wrong with that. No wonder his name is ye ye man.

  • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

    This is Buhari the tyrant and the legacy he left with the Yoruba .

    1. For no just cause or reason ,he stopped the Lagos metro project and stalled the idea of a 3rd mainland bridge which IBB later constructed .

    2.The bigoted tyrant imprisoned more Yoruba politicians than all other heads of states put together, he locked them up in maximum security prisons and detained their northern counterparts in government guest houses complete with stewards.This led to the deaths of most of these politicians who were refused medications while in jail.

    3.He imprisoned many Yoruba activists,eg Tai Solarin who was refused his Athsma medication in jail,in fact it led to his death. Fela Kuti was imprisoned for $215 found on him on his way to a concert in Europe while the Emir of Gwandu’s 250 suitcases packed with all sorts of foreign currencies amounting to millions of dollars was released to him with apologies from Buhari regime.

    4. Buhari was a solid supporter of the Murderous Abacha regime who killed MKO and his wife Kudirat and humiliated Yoruba Generals in the Army .

    5. He dismantled the vibrant Yoruba press,closed down media houses and imprisoned press men with the obnoxious decree4.

    The Yoruba who tend to support the dictator in his bid for the Presidency may just be unaware that this man is not gonna change,he is still very much the Fulani supremacist and religious fanatic who banned the importation of barely a main ingredient for beer making in line with sharia and closed down many breweries leading to the loss of thousands of jobs in Yoruba land !!

    • tundemash

      you are still crying here ….. the CHANGE mantra has gone nuclear ! Latest catch is your PDP gov and co-ordinator of Dumbo’s campaign in NE.

        BUHARI Is Corrupt And Not clean.
        **a man that stole $2.8billion in 1978 as NNPC Fed
        commissioner.
        **Buhari advised Muslims not to vote any Christian
        candidate.
        **as PTF Chairman, Buhari embezzled billions of
        Naira through over-invoicing of supplies & the
        supply of fake & expired drugs to hospitals
        Which Buhari is clean? It is only in Nigeria that a
        man who embezzled $2.8 billion NNPC money while
        he was Federal Commissioner of Petroleum in 1978
        will be described as disciplined, isn’t it? “It is only in
        Nigeria that a man who led the criminal overthrow
        of a democratically elected government in 1984
        would later wish to benefit from the same
        democracy.
        “It is only in Nigeria that the man who, as Head of
        State, allowed 56 illegal suitcases of currency notes
        into the country through his ADC unchecked when
        there was currency change by his own government
        in the country at the time would be described as a
        man of his words. “It is only in Nigeria that the man

        to murder Lawal Ojuolape, Bartholomew Owoh and

        better than others.
        “It is only in Nigeria that the man who enacted
        vindictive decrees which prescribed long jail terms

        embarrassed government officials EVEN IF THE

    My Dear Children on this forum, I guess una don hear the truth from someone old enough to know.

    I can easily remember that the only presence of PTF in my Delta state was only 2 meter sign posts mounted at road junctions leading to mangrove forests and swamps. The sign posts would state: PTF Project in Progress…..These were the only evidence of their presence in Sapele, Agbaro & Ughelli. Unlike children like you, I will not need to Google to remember these or how my own Fela, with handcuffs around his two hands, was thrown into Buhahari’s notorious police ‘Black Maria’ en route to Kirikiri, all because Fela song a sing. No be small thing oh. On Buhari’s orders, Fela was stripped naked and beaten blue (Evidence on youtube). Years later, the Judge who put Fela behind bars in that Bhuari’s kangaroo court (Justice Dosumu) would plead with Fela for forgiveness…bcos he was acting on orders.

    31 yrs after, people pretend to forget. Fela would call all of you one name – ‘Swuegbe’. We can forgive children like Wahala & Co but not early men like Pius Adesakin and co travelers.
