‘Buhari, not a converted democrat’

Toluwani Eniola

The Founder of the Oodua People’s Congress, Dr. Frederick Fasehun, says the recent crackdown on judges has vindicated his stance that President Muhammadu Buhari is not a converted democrat as claimed during the 2015 electioneering.

Fasehun said he was worried that security operatives were not following due process in their fight against corruption.

The elder statesman said this on Wednesday while addressing journalists on the recent crackdown on judges’ residences and alleged abuse of court rulings by the Federal Government.

Fasehun said although he subscribed to the current war against corruption, the invasion of the homes of the judges was a gross and “blatant violation of the rule of law, the Nigerian constitution and common sense.”

He said it was unfortunate that President Buhari represented “the worst threat to our nation’s democracy.”

The OPC leader, therefore, asked the President to immediately caution the Director-General of the Department of State Services, Mr. Lawal Daura.

He said, “These current events have vindicated my stance when I expressed scepticism on the Buhari presidential candidacy in 2015. When, in the build-up to the elections, his spin-doctors told the world that General Buhari was a born-again democrat, we warned Nigerians that this leopard cannot change his spots. Buhari has the trappings of an unrepentant dictator.”
