Nigeria's President Muhammadu Buhari allegedly delivered plagiarized quotes from U.S. President Barack Obama in a speech promising change in the contraption called Nigeria on Friday, September 16, 2016, in his office while addressing Nigerians.
Last week, Buhari gave a speech to launch a campaign titled "Change begins with me," in a seminar organized by his administration
But the speech was copied from the 2008 US president Barrack Obama's victory speech after his election in November, all or most paragraph in the speech urging Nigerians not to fall back "on the same partisanship, pettiness and immaturity that have poisoned our country so long"
"It was observed that the similarities between a paragraph in President Obama's 2008 victory speech and what President Buhari read in paragraph nine of the 16-paragraph address is not a coincidence but an obvious sign of incompetence in his government. Can one imagine that the president's aide and staffs could not write a speech for him? One can hardly imagine what they were thinking to make such an international disgraceful decision by searching the internet and copying a past speech from the US president.
Nigeria is indeed a zoo and a failed state, anyway what else do you expect from an illiterate president who never had any education, what do you expect from a country whose president with no education or certificate bombed his way into power and unleashing tyranny to the citizens. he has continued to be plagued by the blood of Biafrans wasted by him, this plague will continue until he disappears from the surface of this earth.
Buhari and his administration have not failed to bring shame and disgrace to the country since he came into power, last spring he visited the former British prime minister where he said "Nigerians are criminal" and is fantastically corrupt" , he have several times come under attack from US presidential candidate Donald Trump.
Muhammadu Buhari's image have been totally destroyed in the international scene and not even a 50-page apology letter is enough to change it. We learnt that he quickly issued an apology and promised to sanction those behind it for copying a speech but this is like giving medication to a dead person. Buhari has brought pains, hunger and shame to Nigerians, how worse could it get?
One day Buhari will sign his resignation letter without knowing, because is too dumb for president, and his public rating continues to nosedive, speaking of honesty and change which was the campaign slogan, on the day he launched an "honest and change begins with me" campaign he read a copied speech, who is fooling who? I cannot agree less that Nigeria is not only in recession, Nigeria is in trouble.
