Buhari Comes Under Further Attack
Critics of President Muhammadu Buhari have taken to social media to blast the proclamation by the president that he assumed office in 2005.
This Naija News recalls Buhari said at the presidential rally of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in Ekiti yesterday.
“I am very pleased the vice-president is here and the chairman of the National Economic Commission [sic] has told you in detail what we are doing, especially that affects your state.
“I assure you what the minister of transportation said Amaechi because he’s in charge, he told you what we’re doing about the railways from Lagos to Kano through the states along the line; that we’re very conscious of the promises we made when came in 2005,” Buhari had said.
However, many Nigerians, particularly those in the opposition, have taken the opportunity to attack the President.
See some Twitter comments below:
A man could not even remember when he assumed office. He said in Ekiti today that he assumed office in 2005. Yet, they still want him to continue as President. Must they ruin Nigeria just to promote their personal interests?
Why can't they just allow this man to go home and rest?

Buhari came to power in 2005?
I do not mean to ridicule Mr. President, but I am deeply troubled about what will become of this country if Buhari returns.
Buhari is vulnerable.
Why are his supporters not bothered about the consistent gaffes and seeming amnesia of the President? pic.twitter.com/nIGhvtzgvR

“We are very conscious of the promise we made when we are coming in in 2005”- @MBuhari
He DOES NOT know when he became President. He DOES NOT know he is the Presidential (or governotorial) candidate. He can’t read his note.

Buhari has done it again!Today as he addressed the crowd at his Ekiti rally he told them that he was elected into office "in 2005". The senility and diseased mind that plagues this creature is getting worse by the day. Is this what some say should lead Nigeria for another 4 yrs? pic.twitter.com/gMrRDqaP8p

All you #Buharists!@MBuhari has done it again ooh!
Ekiti State…he came to office in 2005!
Can any of you beat that?
Buhari's mental decline is TOTAL!
Why would any rational human being vote an incompetent, mentally incapacitated vegetable as President mbok?

Since Buhari declared himself President since 2005, my Leader @AbdulMahmud01 can we now blame him for 10 years of the alleged 16 years of waste…

Buhari said he came into power in 2005 at Ekiti rally. This is a slip of tongue too many. No doubt cabal is in charge.

Buhari is getting older and he should go home and take care of His health.
Buhari At his best was unintelligent and incompetent.
Now that he's senile, the situation is getting worst.
He told Ekiti people he assumed office in 2005……….. Too bad for Nigeria president.

Buhari came into power in 2005 (According his speech in Ekiti), and he is just seeking re-election in 2019…what your hero and look at your brain power again

These Buharistans are very funny.
After I posted his statement yesterday, one actually argued that Buhari never said 2005 but 2015 cos "he was there."
Now video evidence don show.
They are now going from "anybody can make mistake" to people will vote him regardless.
