Following recent controversies about some aspects of the life of the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Muhammadu Buhari, which are not known by the public, the political camp of the former head of state has created a website for the sole purpose of telling ‘facts and history’ about Buhari.
The website is populated with articles extolling the virtues of Buhari, with a timeline on the homepage starting from 1976, when he was appointed as Federal commissioner for Petroleum Resources by the head of state of at the time, Gen. Olusegun Obasanjo.
Other articles on the website include the Oil Gate Scandal, War Against Indiscipline: Environmental Sanitation, among others.
Buhari is the presidential candidate of the main opposition party in the country, APC, and the major challenger of President Goodluck Jonathan, who is contesting to be re-elected at the February 14 presidential election under the umbrella of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
The new website, created by Babajide Akeredolu, an IT expert, is expected to clear the air on several issues many Nigerians do not really understand about the former head of state, and hopefully clear sentiments against him in some quarters.
