Charles Oputa, a well-known Nigerian musician commonly called Charly Boy, has criticized President Muhammadu Buhari for asking Nigerians to forgive him after “deliberately mismanaging” the country for eight years.
In his Eid-el-Fitr message, President Buhari asked Nigerians to forgive him for any harm he may have caused them, saying “I ask that they pardon me, all those that I have hurt”. Charly Boy responded to this via a video message on Twitter, stating that he does not accept the President’s apology. Charly Boy went on to accuse Buhari and his political party of deliberately mismanaging Nigeria for the past eight years.
He said, “Dear, General Buhari, apology not accepted! At least, by me.
“Abeg abeg, stop forming. The power that you hungered for, at you don test ham na; the second time. And this your second coming wad to perfect what you failed to complete on your first. Are you happy now?
Many will agree with the fact that Nigeria in the last eight years has been intentionally and deliberately mismanaged under your watch and the APC cabals with impunity and intensity.”
Charly Boy has also expressed concern that the newly redesigned N1000, N500, and N200 notes have disappeared from circulation, despite a Supreme Court ruling that the old notes will continue to be legal tender with the new notes until December 31, 2023. Charly Boy shared a photo on his Twitter page with a caption questioning why only the old notes are being circulated.
