Open Letter to President Muhammadu Buhari
Greetings Mr. President,
Since you resumed office as President of Nigeria, I have read and listened to many scaring utterances from your aides, political party and most recently from you.
Of late, it is all about that you meeting an empty treasury, No money, Jonathan did this, Jonathan did that, be patient with me, no this, no that, bla bla bla bla.
Mr. President I want to remind that while you were campaigning, I listened to you on the TV, you said that Nigeria was broke, that Jonathan is destroying Nigeria and you want to rescue it. I read you branding our country, Nigeria as a failed state. Right?
So now, that you have finally taken over, why are you complaining that Nigeria is broke, a situation you were much aware even before you started your campaign?
You knew that Nigeria was broke before making over 48 promises to Nigerians, right?
So Mr President, I just want to remind you...as below...
You promised Nigeria CHANGE, you did not promise excuses...
You promised the little children one meal per day, you did not promise them excuses...
You promised unemployed Youths N5,000 every month, you did not promise them excuses. Katsina Women queued up early this week for their payment and went home disappointed.
You promised Youth corp members one year salary after service, you did not promise excuses...
You promised to equate N1.00 to $1.00, not excuses. [Naira was 182 to a Dollar on 29 May, 2015, today it is 224 to a Dollar].
You promised to create three million Jobs per year, not excuses
You promised to create and transmit 20,000 MW of electricity, not excuses.
You Promised to build 60,000 Houses in a year, not excuse.
You promised us Chinese type, Rocket speed train in a year in office, not excuse.
You promised permanent peace in the Niger Delta, not excuses.
You promised to ban all government officials from seeking medical care abroad, not excuses.
You promised to Balance our Budget in your first year in office, not patience.
You promised to crushed Boko Haram within a week in office, not calling them your disgruntled brothers.
You promised to kill Corruption, but you have freed indicted APC leaders and $600,000,000 squandered from our reserve in less than a week.
You promised to stop ostentatious lifestyle of our Politicians, but one of your official car is valued over N500,000,000.
The list is long... if you have forgotten them, please ask Femi Adesina and Garba Shehu to Google them out for you Sir. These days Mr.President, you can find everything you said just by googling them and let me remind you Mr president, this stealing started from the North, then it extended to South-West before reaching the South-South, we must fight corruption from its first source and end it at its last bus stop which Mr President claim is South-South.
Mr. President, Nigeria want to see you talk about achieving this promises not excuses.
We sincerely Trust your ability to achieve all these as promised and wish you success, Good health, Extra energy and better focus.
