It is no more news that a government which rode itself to power on the back of   ''Integrity Mantra''  has  been caught pants down in the web of Plagiarism. In layman's understanding through Google encyclopedia "Plagiarism is the practice of taking someone else's work or ideas and passing them off as one's own. In other words, Plagiarism ,in no uncertain terms, is an act of fraud!

More than one paragraph of Obama's speech was represented verbatim in Buhari's, ''we must resist the temptation to fall back on the same partisanship, pettiness and immaturity that have poisoned our country for so long. Let us summon a new spirit of responsibility, the spirit of service, of patriotism and sacrifice. Let us all resolve to pitch in and work hard and look after, not only ourselves, but one another".

While Obama said, "so let us summon a new spirit of patriotism; of service and responsibility where each of us resolves to pitch in and work harder and look after not only ourselves but each other. Let us resist the temptation to fall back on the same partisanship and pettiness and immaturity that has poisoned our politics for so long."

From the foregoing, there is no denying the fact that the self-styled "Man of Integrity" has committed an illegality which is tantamount to fraud and therefore actionable if he needs reminding. Had Buhari equipped himself with current trends in democracy happenings, he could have come across such statements and nip it in the bud during proofreading. On the other hand, I don't want to believe that someone who called himself a president wouldn't take time to proofread a speech presented to him.

Recalling  from dim memory we are all not unaware of how he was deposed in a coup on August 27, 1985, while his deputy late Maj Gen Tunde Idiagbon was away in Saudi Arabia on a pilgrimage by the then Chief of Army Staff, Maj Gen Ibrahim Babangida.

The reasons for his ouster at the period under sad review are still there because nothing about him has changed to this day as far as leadership skills are concerned and this in no small measure agitates the mind of this writer and ultimately calls his leadership skills in question.

If Buhari can copy someone's work (speech), then what stops him from copying Britain's approach to Scotts quest for freedom and allow a referendum to be conducted in Biafra land rather than using brute force to suppress their voices? What stops him from copying David Cameron's leadership style on BREXIT? It's disheartening and ridiculous the type of thing some African leaders copy especially Nigeria. Buhari's government has copied dictatorship, nepotism, favoritism, marginalization, theory of 97% and 5%, and etc.

While we count ourselves lucky to be in the know where he copied his "Change Begin With Him" speech from, but the source of his repressive style of governance which is against every democratic norm and value  leaves everyone groping in the dark marvellously. Buhari, while in the army, killed a good number of Biafrans and he has not refrained from it as this has continued with undiminished intensity following his incursion on the Nigerian political terrain as president. It is either Buhari lacks good advisers or he is too rigid to adopt democratic approaches which he swore to uphold.

We ask British government to please encourage, and allow Buhari to toe the line of Scotts  and BREXIT referendums. By doing so, he would be applauded like David Cameron; the man he congratulated for allowing people's voices to prevail. Buhari let others applaud you for making sure that the right to self-determination sees light of the day.
