It is often said that a prophet is not appreciated in his own home.
While Nigerians feel mostly disappointed and have all but lost hope in the Bughari administration (for good reason by the way), the coalition party that produced President-Elect, Adamu Barrow is certain that our President Muhammadu Buhari possesses all the qualities that will restore The Gambia to the true democracy.
According to Hammed Ba, one of the coalition members declared that The Gambia needs “the experience of President Muhammadu Buhari of Nigeria in many ways.”
According to him, “like President Jammeh, he is a former military officer, so he knows how the military thinks, and would be able to talk to him appropriately.
“Again, President Buhari was in the opposition in Nigeria for about 12 years, before he won election in 2015. So, he also knows how the opposition thinks. He can feel what we feel. We are quite glad that President Buhari is here, it gives us a lot of hope.”
Hopefully this won’t turn out to be anothet country unrealistically placing their all hopes in one man who can only do so much.
