The former Nigerian ambassador to the Philippines, Yemi Farounbi said that God imposed Buhari on Nigeria to punish the country.
Speaking on a weekly radio show, Ayekooto on Splash 105.5FM, Yemi Farounbi said,
“In 2014/2015 when we were campaigning when Nigerians decided to accept the campaign of once chance, they were warned of the past history of Muhammadu Buhari and how he imprisoned many politicians including Chief Obafemi Awolowo.”
He continued, “God is a wonderful being. He decided to use Buhari to punish Nigerians for their evil deeds, and Nigerians deserve these punishments.
“Nigeria is not what I thought it would be. I have incurable optimism that Nigeria will still be better. Those who are enjoying proceeds of bribery, corruption, epileptic power supply, insecurity, among other vices, are not looking forward to seeing a better Nigeria.”
“Now we are being threatened by terrorists in our country and our soldiers are almost incapacitated, the Nigerians soldiers that went to Lebanon, Sierra Leone, Liberia and Congo but now they cannot effectively defend the territorial integrity of their country.”
Speaking on the bandits outspokenness and its recent utterance on Nasir El-Rufai and Buhari, he said: “The acts of the bandits have shown that they really mean business. They recently ambushed officers from the Brigade of Guards in Abuja, and this is an absolute insult and injury to the sovereignty of the country, and whenever I hear this, I feel ashamed of our country,”
