Buhari was so ashamed of himself he couldn't give a speech at his "fraudulent" inauguration - Ex-minister says, hails OBJ and GEJ for not attending

Former presidents Olusegun Obasanjo and Goodluck Jonathan were conspicuously absent from the second term inauguration of President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday.

This has stirred a sort of debate among political analysts in the country. The President who took the oath of office in Abuja at the Eagle Square didn’t also give an inaugural speech which also has started a debate among some Nigerians.

Speaking on Obasanjo and Jonathan’s absence ad the inauguration is a former minister of aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode.

The former minister commended the past presidents for not attending the “fraudulent” inauguration ceremony. He also described Buhari as a liar, pretender, and an imposter, who was so “ashamed of himself” he didn’t bother to give a speech.

He wrote: I commend the courage and fortitude of OBJ(Obasanjo) and Jonathan for NOT attending the fraudulent inauguration ceremony that took place in Abuja this morning when a liar, a pretender, an imposter, an election-rigger and an electoral thief was purportedly sworn in as our President.

The thief was so ashamed of himself that he could not even muster the courage to offer a single word or a speech after being “sworn in”.

Instead, he put his tail between his legs and crawled back to hide in his Villa- fortress without saying a word to anyone. Shame on him!


  1. what do you want him to say since in his conscience, he knows he is holding a stolen mandate. His remaining mute after being sworn in further confirms the allegation of rigging the election.

  2. Which is more important, is it the inaugural speech or the work he needs to do? I believe in action and not speech making. The saying goes, action speaks louder than words. Obasanjo and Goodluck are failures. They lack integrity. They wasted our resources. Where is the 16 billion dollars for power. What is happening to the power privatisation of Goodluck? The insecurity we have in the country to is on because Obasanjo and Goodluck failed to pay attention.

  3. I actually expected him to atleast a thank you to those Nigerians whom APC says voted for him. 2. A short talk on his plans for the nation in the new dispensation. Not saying a word to me means he has no plans at all
