Opinion: IS PRESIDENT MUHAMMADU BUHARI A SAINT RATHER A PERFECT MAN? By Jamaluddeen Hadi Balarabe
Honestly speaking I find it difficult to write much on my timeline courtesy of busy schedules from different angles, but I see it deems fit to say even a little on this particular assumptions in almost entire nigerian societies who are ardent supporters of president Muhammadu Buhari.
As I said it and still will utter the same, President Muhammadu Buhari is a man of honour, integrity, a leader who loves and has sympathy for common people, more so a leader who knows how to lead and possesses a vast experience in governance, most especially on security matters, he is competent to lead nigeria to the dreamed land we so much cherish and yarn for. President Buhari is neither a looter nor a tyrant, President Buhari as Almighty God so wished is a genius in tackling most of his challenges in life, I will use these words once again “tasted and trusted”. He has an outstanding composure to handle all the pressures bedeviling his administration as he did it back then when he was the military head of state for only the corrupt and evil elements to spoil everything for nothing but rather to enrich themselves and their families which I believe the nefarious activities that are presently truncating all the developmental initiatives of president Muhammadu Buhari has to do with some of those evil intentioned persons to see the downfall of president Muhammadu Buhari which in turn befalls upon the country.
Some of us are being cautious of how and when President Muhammadu Buhari came to power while some are just hiding under the guise of taking advantage to criticize, well, for those being cautious of the situation he took over the mantle of leadership, they sympathize with him and give him benefit of doubt objectively and some among them negatively in running the affairs of the country, but with all the qualities mentioned above.
I tend to expatiate more on the negative assumptions of some people on our dear president, most of the supporters of president Muhammadu Buhari thought that president Muhammadu Buhari is a saint and at the same time a perfect human being, while in reality he is not rather a man of honour and integrity but neither a saint nor a perfect man, our beloved president is a human being who could commit mistakes in his life time which some core-blind-supporters fail to bring to their conscience, they consider him a person with “no wrong doing”, all he does attains perfection nothing but completely right and perfect, in their senses (core-blind supporters). The president must not to be wrong in all he does, all his actions must be seen as perfect, I don’t think if we are really possessed with love and care of the president then we would let him act even negatively, we must agree he could commit mistakes and we must for the genuine love and care we have for him tell him the truth where there is need to be told, and more so pray for him to deliver on his promises but we ought to be wrong to be inclining president Muhammadu Buhari with Almighty God’s attributes. It is honestly wrong and dangerous for both of us, Almighty God dislikes these kind of attitudes the most, Almighty God hates partnering him with anything, if we do this religiously his wraths would befall upon all with no exceptions, advisedly we must by all means stop these assumptions for the sake of being it a disobedient to Almighty and then president Muhammadu Buhari’s successes will fully manifest, then we pray for him more.
On this note I am calling on those with the said opinion to know that for president to succeed there must be criticism from both his supporters and wailers for these are the real ingredients of successes, if someone has a constructive criticism then the president and his supporters need that objective criticism the most because it will definitely give him courage to deliver even beyond his earlier promises, and I also want to assure the “core-blind-supporters” they are president’s enemies in disguise I swear. Those of us who agree and believe President could commit mistakes are his real and authentic supporters who love him the most and so dearly, I think if someone wants somebody to be good and strong for the love and care he or she has on that person even though he is of good moral attitudes there is still need not to hesitate on advising or even criticizing him in both polite and harsh manners for these two ways are putting him in a Conner not to be bad person or acted negatively which at the end of the day he would reap the fruits of him being taught how to face challenges that come across his life endeavours, and mind you those with the negative minds, I have brought this example just for better understanding purposes.
May Almighty God help our dear president over comes all his challenges in running the affairs of our good country with abundant resources and vast potentials which I believe with Almighty’s help this president Muhammadu Buhari’s administration in time will be able to harness them all.
