General Buhari Is Not A Democrat—GANI ADAMS

National coordinator of the Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC), Otunba Gani Adams, at the weekend, in Lagos, took a swipe at the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), General Mohammadu Buhari (retd), describing him as an enemy of democracy.
Addressing newsmen in Lagos, Otunba Adams said the APC standard bearer has never been a lover of democracy, having toppled a democratically elected government in 1983, and vehemently opposed the National Conference convergence, a platform to discuss the socio-political and economic future of the country.
Going down memory lane, he said if the retired general had not trampled the nascent democracy under his jackboot, democracy would have thriven well today.
According to him, “General Buhari is not the right leader Nigerians should vote for at this time because he never believed in the National Conference ab initio and all the tenets of democracy.”
The OPC leader, therefore, gave reasons why Nigerians across board should vote for President Goodluck Jonathan in the forthcoming presidential election, citing the convergence of the National Conference as a veritable pointer for his argument.
According to him, “President Goodluck Jonathan is a man of integrity who will never lie to Nigerians. He had said it in several fora that he will implement all the recommendations of the national conference which we believe is the best thing that has happened to Nigeria in a long while and that’s why the Oodua Peoples Congress is throwing its full weight behind his second term ambition.
“Yoruba leaders met and agreed that we will only support the full implementation of the national conference and he has agreed to that, meaning, we think alike”.
