“People Call Me “Baba Go Slow” Those Going Fast, Where Did They Go?” – President Buhari
President Muhammadu Buhari at a meeting with Nigerians in the Diaspora on Thursday, September 27, in New York responded to claims that he is slow and sluggish in bringing about the change he promised the country during his 2015 campaign.
On his official Twitter page, the president said that people wrongly refer to him as ‘Baba Go Slow’. In his reply to the claim, he said:
“Sometimes people call me ‘Baba Go Slow.’ Those who were going fast –where did they go to?”
“In 1983, military officers gathered and made me Head of State. I packed the politicians into jail, told them they were guilty until they could prove their innocence.
“We seized what they had looted, but after I myself was put in detention, the politicians were given back what they had looted. How many elites complained about that?
“Three times I contested elections; three times I went to court after the elections were rigged against me. No justice, but I said ‘God dey.’
