Democracy Day: Afenifere berates Buhari for making veil promises on democracy day speech


    The Yoruba socio-cultural group, Afenifere, has on Friday berated President Muhammadu Buhari over his Democracy Day nationwide speech.

    Recall that President Muhammadu Buhari listed many achievement and made several promises in his democracy day speech

    He said among others, “We have witnessed eleven quarters of consecutive GDP growth since exiting recession. The GDP grew from one point nine-one percent in 2018 to two point two-seven percent in 2019 but declined to one point eight-seven percent in the first quarter of 2020 as a result of the decline in global economic activities due to the COVID nineteen pandemic”.

    The National Publicity Secretary of the group, Yinka Odumaki, says Buhari may consider running for a third term before actualizing all the promises he keeps making to Nigerians.

    Asked if Buhari has failed in the past years, Odumakin said: “Well, Buhari already answered your question in his speech today which was full of promises of what he would do about the economy and so on.

    “If you are making promises after five years when you have practically one year left in office because the remaining two years will be about the next election, so I don’t need to appraise this government.

    “No need to start appraising this government. Buhari himself knows he has not done well. He was only making promises after all the years in office. Buhari is still campaigning after years in office.

    “If a man has been in office for five years and all he is doing is to make promises in the area of corruption, insecurity, when will he work? Except Buhari is thinking of running for a third term to carry out his promises
