A former chairman of the Northern Elders Forum, NEF, Wantaregh Paul Unongo, has expressed regret for supporting President Muhammadu Buhari’s to become the country leader in 2015.
The Former Minister of Steel said that he was among those who risked their lives to support Buhari’s 2015 presidential campaign, saying he is disappointed with the performance of the Buhari-led administration.
In a chat with journalists on Sunday evening in Jos, Unongo said history will judge the president when he finally leaves office in 2023.
According to him: “Some of us that went for Buhari risked our lives. Many of us are disappointed, and I am too old not to speak the truth. We are disappointed with the performance we have seen by the government led by Buhari.
“He could have done better, but he didn’t do as we expected him to. History will judge that he has total support from his people; some of them took a risk. I took the risk of leading a delegation to the United States of America (U.S.A.) to plead his cause because of what he had done in the past.”
“I addressed the Congress for General Buhari. So, what we are doing is not different from the role we played in the past.”
